The Second Best Thing


Tuesday- Warmed up on the bike 10 min, 15 min shoulder workout

We received the best package in the mail yesterday!!! For the hubs Birthday on the 9th I got him an exercise bike for our gym. During the summer he mountain bikes along the trails behind our house. Now he can train during the winter too. It’s no treadmill, but it’s definitely the second best thing!

Yesterday’s dinner was inspired by my longing for summer. Maybe if I cook like it’s summer, the sun will actually come out. . .

BBQ chicken, sweet potato fries, and fresh pineapple

After dinner we had our family night lesson. I ‘taught’ J about Noah’s Ark. While he painted the ark and animals. He loved all the animals, especially the elephants, he kept pointing at them and making the elephant noise.


Last night I went on a hunt for a foam roller. I had heard from a good friend/neighbor that TJ Max had some on sale! Unfortunately, it must have been an awesome sale, they were gone=( Don’t worry we made up for the disappointment with some frozen yogurt. J completely stole mine, luckily I got mine for free with my full punch card=)


If you have a foam roller, where did you get it? Do you like it?

We ended the night with our ‘family night treat'(as if we didn’t have enough sweets) after J went to bed=)


Got anything fun in the mail lately?

What is your favorite Easter candy? Cadbury Eggs for me, they are just too delicious!!

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.

  1. I love my foam roller! It’s the only thing I’ve found to help with my IT band problems. We got ours at target.

    I love me some mini eggs!! Yumm!! Starburst jelly beans are also a favorite 🙂

  3. jumpeatrun says:

    those mini-eggs are soooooo good! I got my foam roller from Modells (a sporting goods store…not sure if you have them there?)

  4. I got my foam roller for $15 from Walmart and I really love it. It’s honestly my favorite thing ever! It was cheap, but it works really well (in my not-so-expert opinion). Your frozen yogurt looks delicious… I would love a bite 😀 I got the ENERGYbits sample I won from another blog in the mail over the weekend while I was away and I can’t wait to try them and then review them! My favorite Easter candy is reese’s peanut butter eggs, but basically anything with chocolate is OK in my book. I also like the little robin’s eggs, the whopper like candy?

  5. oh man now I am craving pineapple

  6. Fitcupcaker says:

    cadburry eggs are my favorite, the little mini ones too! I try to avoid the candy aisle around easter because its so tempting!

  7. Keep cooking summer foods and hopefully it will work! I’ve decided to just start dressing like it’s warmer and see if that makes summer come more quickly. So far it’s not working at all.

  8. Those mini eggs are my favorite!! We’ve been eating a lot of fresh pineapple too.

  9. That dinner looks awesome. . .and the mini eggs are my all time favorite too. Good thing they only come around once per year otherwise I would have a problem!

  10. Mini eggs are amazing!! Especially the popping/sparkling ones 😀

  11. Yum, I love sweet potato fries and fro yo! Looks like a perfect night to me. As far as Easter candy goes, the Snickers chocolate eggs are my favorite!! 🙂
