California Wknd Recap Part 1


Friday- 3 miles(incline) in Cali Gym +arms

Saturday- 3 miles in Cali Gym + legs


I love getting a little workout in when I’m on vacation. Even if it’s just 3 miles, I love knowing I started my day off right and then I don’t feel bad for indulging while vacationing. One way to really amp up a short workout is by playing with your incline. Friday’s workout was no joke!

Thursday we left for Cali at about noon and spent that day stuck in LA traffic. I have never experienced traffic like that in my life(small town girl here).

We finally made it to our hotel, and headed to our reservation at Rainforest Cafe. J was in heaven with all the animals surrounding us.

Of course we had to walk around Downtown Disney, it was such a beautiful night.

Friday we got up bright and early and headed to the beach after my quick workout. We went to Laguna Beach and practically had the beach to ourselves. The waves are a lot rougher at the particular beach, and J got tangled in a wave and scared to death(he was only in there for maybe 3 seconds, but scared him nonetheless). We spent the rest of the time playing in the sand.

And then something amazing happened. A woman came up to us and offered to take a family picture. If you know me, you know I’m a paparazzi and love taking pictures. I beg Josh to take pictures with me all the time, but he hates pictures haha This woman after my own heart proceeded to take several pictures and direct on what to do, she was getting down in the sand and everything. It was a bit awkward but I love having a few family pics!

After the beach, we went to lunch(Cheesecake Factory) and then a movie, How to Train your Dragon 2. J loves watching movies at the theater and he did great. It was an entertaining movie so I definitely recommend it.

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.

    Looks like a good time…I totally miss the beach – one downfall of living in a landlocked state. Right now my go to calorie burner is biking; I like being able to get outside and move even though I can’t quite run right now.

  4. Oh my gosh you guys are so cute!! I love the beach family photos! Funny I actually watched some of the old episodes of Laguna Beach (remember that show?) this past weekend! I bet it is gorgeous there!!

  5. I’m bad about running on vacation… but running is my go-to calorie scorcher!! I tlooks like you had a great trip!!
