Showers for Babies and running goals

This weekend was great. I loved just relaxing with family and enjoying some great baby showers. Seriously, everyone around me is prego, must be in the water that I’m not drinking. First was a shower for my SIL Whitney. She’s having her second boy, so it was a cute shower just for diapers.

J got to crash the girl party. "Hey Ladies"=)

The second shower I planned for a friend in my neighborhood. She’s having a baby girl so I got to make  pink cupcakes=)


Check up on last weeks goals:

Sign up for this years races. I’m excited for the half next weekend, but I haven’t signed up for all of them, but I usually don’t until it gets a bit closer and I can get some promotion codes.

Get a good tempo run in. Check.


Goals 3/11-17

1. Get a good long run in (around 10-12 miles) before next weeks half marathon.

2. 3 weight training workouts

3. Alright, this is a big deal for me and my(massive) sweet tooth. Only one dessert(candy, brownies, cookies, that sort of sweet) one day this week. I love sweets and I don’t think it’s ‘bad’ to have them daily, but I think I’ve been going overboard and replacing better foods with sweets. For me, that’s when it’s a problem.

As always, I want to know what your goals are

Do you set rules for yourself regarding sweets? How do you decide on what sweets to eat and not eat?

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.

    I was actually thinking yesterday I want to take a week off of sweets. I like to do that every now and then just to get things back on track and prove that I can do it (;

  3. I love the idea of setting weekly goals! This week I am going to try to be more cognizant of the food I eat. I have a tendency to do some late night snacking. I try to only have one or two of sweet things depending on the size. I guess the easiest way to avoiding overeating sweets is to not make them available. This week my goal is to stay committed to my cross and strength training.

  4. I’ve been having an issue with sweets as well! My goal this week/long term is to drink less (I love beer)and get back into the kitchen and create new recipes. Tonight I’m making orange tofu with fresh oranges, so I’m hoping it turns out well!

  5. Love the pink cupcakes! You are going to do awesome on your next half…can’t wait!

  9. Those pink cupcakes are so cute!

  10. J is so cute on the bean bag 🙂 Goal for this week is to try to get in one interval run, one easy run, and then one harder and longer run outside this weekend. I’m not a big sweets fan but if nachos or cheese fries are present I will definitely be eating those!

    Congrats on reaching your goals this week!
    I try to decide before I go somewhere whether or not I am going to have sweets. That helps me stick with it.
    My goal this week ~ listen to my body. We finished our first marathon just over a week ago and are running a half in a couple of weeks. I want to be safe!
