Goals in Review and a beautiful night


Saturday- 6 miles, 8:50 pace outside

I got my run out of the way Saturday morning and it felt great to be outside. It’s already getting pretty warm in the morning. I didn’t realize this, and I should’ve brought my water belt with me. Darn, I know better for next time.

The hill that kills me every time. At least it’s a beautiful view when I make it to the top.

Rest of the day we spent outside figuring out what we wanted to do with our yard. We decided on grapes, raspberries, tomatoes, and squash this year. I hope it works out because I love raspberries and fresh garden tomatoes.

That night we met up with a few of my siblings and their spouses and my mom=) at Tacanos. It’s a delicious restaurant with the best salad/food buffet ever.

Sneaky lil guy stealing my fried bananas.


Not to mention that you can have endless meat too. The servers come around with all kinds of different meat and if you’re table has their wooden block on green they’ll stop by. You can turn in to red when you’ve had enough meat.


It was a beautiful night with family, love those!

Last week goals

1. Take my runs slow and easy. Check. It felt good to not worry about the number and just run what I wanted to I think my body needed it too.

2. Ab workouts. I did 4 total workouts this week. That’s a huge improvement from this past year, I hope to keep it up.

3. Run outside 3 times this week.  I ran 2 times outside, the 3rd day I planned to run outside it snowed, so. . .

New goals for 5/5-11

1. Bring Tempo back into my workouts. Easy week is over!

2. Drink more water, I do not get anywhere near enough.

3. Plant raspberries, and work on the drip line for the grapes.

What are your fitness goals? Life goals?

What are your Sunday plans? I get to have dinner with family again before my mom leaves, yay!

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.

    wait a second, you’re telling me you can GROW GRAPES IN YOUR BACKYARD?! How did I not know this?! We always have blueberries raspberries and strawberries out the wazoo but I never thought of grapes! I think my parents are getting a talking to. Have fun with your family!

    fitness goals are just to stick with the program I am doing and get stronger! Love the pictures (:

  3. I love the nathan handheld water bottle, if you’re looking for a new fuel carrying option. I do the best job of drinking water if I fill 2 water bottles right away in the morning. I just know I have to drink them, and they’re usually gone by dinner time (where I usually drink water also).

    My goal is to keep increasing my activity. I want to start doing more ab workouts, they’re so easy to youtube and follow along, but I rarely do it!

  4. I would kill to have raspberries growing in my backyard!

    I would LOVE to be able to walk outside and get delicious fruit from my backyard! I am hoping we’ll be able to have a garden when we move into our house in a few weeks!!

  6. When I move into a house, I’m hoping to have a garden! I think that would be amazing 😀 Today, I’m just planning on being lazy and eating some homemade nachos to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Exciting!

  7. I think it’s great that you make goals on a weekly basis! Seems like a great way to stay on track and constantly be improving yourself. My Sunday plans included going to open houses to look for a house to buy and lots of cleaning and organizing to get ready for the week.

  8. That is so funny that you mentioned that restaurant. While on my work trip this past week, my co-workers and I ate at a restaurant with the same concept. As a vegetarian, I obviously did not partake in the meat part. The salad bar was amazing, though!

    I love our garden! Everything is starting to bloom so I can’t wait to get some goodies in a few weeks 🙂

    I love how you made weekly goals. I need to do this! That hill looks killer so awesome job and you had a great pace. 🙂 I totally need to do more ab work especially after having a baby. We love to garden, but we have never done grapes. What kind do you do? How do you grow them?

    • After I had J that was the one workout I really lacked, abs! Luckily nursing helped a lot with that.
      You know, I’m not sure what kind of grapes we have, the previous owners planted them. We just prune them every spring and water them with a drip line during the summer(which we’re putting in hopefully this week).
