Sugar Detox



Yesterday all my sisters came over with their kids. They are on Spring break so they came down to partay!! I wish I could say it’s because I’m so cool, but really it’s because my mom is so cool. We all brought a little something and had lunch together, chicken/strawberry salad, potato salad, veggies, and of course more cookies!

All my sisters and mom are going on what we’re calling a ‘sugar fast’. We are only going to have sugar 2 days a week and only one treat on each day. I do this every year to detox from all the sugar I eat. I love having support and someone to hold me accountable. Today starts the first day of the sugar fast, who’s in?

Yes, I’m asking you to give up happiness for 5 days of the week;)


Other exciting happenings, my in laws bought the tickets to Singapore!! Remember how they got us tickets to Singapore for Christmas to pick up Josh’s brother from his LDS mission? Well, it just got real because we have an itinerary and tickets, ahh, sooo excited!

Our excited faces, haha

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.

    Congrats on Singapore, that’s going to be awesome! I love how your family is supporting each other with the sugar fast, plus the rules aren’t ridiculous so it’s manageable. I don’t know if I can commit to it as much as you are but I’m definitely trying to lay off sweets a bit.

  2. Singapore sounds amazing! We just booked a trip to Myrtle Beach for May. Not as exciting as Singapore but warm at least šŸ˜‰

  3. WOW! Singapore sounds SO cool! The furthest I’ve traveled is Costa Rica…but I’ll be going to Europe in a little over a that’s so exciting! šŸ˜€

  4. I don’t eat much sugar in terms of cookies/sweets, but there’s all the hidden sugar that I couldn’t turn down! (I like bread!) Singapore will be quite the experience!!

  5. I try to keep sugar (candy/cake etc etc) out of my house because I’m the only one there LOL so I know I’ll eat it! Singapore is going to be lovely!! I hear it is absolutely beautiful there!

  6. So cool about Singapore! I don’t really keep sugar in the house except in the form of fruit so this way I won’t eat it! šŸ™‚

  7. Yay! Soo exciting! I’m buying my ticket to Europe tonight. Can’t wait! The furthest I’ve been is Argentina.
    I need a sugar fast really bad. I just don’t want to commit to it right now haha But I will work on decreasing.
