What Matters Most


monday-4 miles on TM + tricep/bicep workout

Friday morning of last week I unfortunately got the flu my sister had a few days prior. I took Friday-Sunday off from working out and took it easy. Luckily, it was a quick flu, like only a few hours.

Yesterday I tested out how I’d feel working out and I actually felt really good, so I got in a nice slow 4 miles then did the following exercises as much as I could for 1 minute each(2 sets).

Bicep curls

tricep dips

Over the weekend we lost Josh’s aunt Lezlie unexpectedly. I think it’s safe to say we were all very close to her because she made such an effort to be close to all of us. It’s tragic and I still can’t believe she’s not with us anymore. It’s really made me reflect on what matters most and what I want to cherish each and everyday.

Last night we had family night. I think it’s so important to carve time out of our busy schedules and just be together.

Embracing the crazy moments. I mentioned on Insta that J wanted to do his hair by himself and used water and toothpaste… instead of freaking out I just had to laugh. That boy is so determined. Oh and he had to do his cousin M’s hair too.

This past week my mom was out of town visiting my brother and his wife(who just had the cutest baby girl). My dad took me and J on a date(J chose where hehe) and it was so fun to get that one on one time with my dad.

Enjoying the beautiful surroundings. We’ve had the best spring weather so Josh took us on a hike where he normally bikes.

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
