The Best big brother and working out is tough


monday- 3 miles + shoulder ripper workout

tuesday- arm definer workout

Sometimes working out is really tough. Sometimes I’m just tired or lazy or just don’t want to change into my workout clothes that don’t fit that great right now. Sometimes I feel like, “I’m already getting fat, so why not just live it up and have all the foods?”  But, then I remember I LOVE working out. I know this sounds cheesy, but it makes me feel alive. I love being able to do something for me, and right now it benefits baby girl too. It gives me energy, and helps me throughout pregnancy so I don’t get super uncomfortable.

So lately, I’ve been getting up and doing it anyway. If you’re feeling down or like working out isn’t worth it, it is. I’m so grateful to be pregnant, to have this body, and to be able to move. Okay random thoughts done=)

Monday we headed to the farm. We love going there on nice days and J never gets sick of riding the ponies. This time some great friends of ours joined us, it was great!

Tuesday J had preschool and I enjoyed walking around Target. I literally could walk around there for hours(and sometimes do). This time, I picked up some wedding and bday gifts. Later on, we went to TJ Maxx for some random things and J was set on getting baby girl some clothes and toys. He WOULD NOT leave the store without something for her. He’s seriously so excited for his baby sister. We let him pick out one thing for her, and the decision was so tough for him. Seriously melted my heart.

he was carrying around a whole load of things haha

what’s stopping you from working out or doing something you’ve always wanted to do?

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. LOVE THIS!! Very motivating chica! Keep workin it and rocking it!!

  2. Aww that is soo sweet. That little J is the cutest. He’ll be such a great big brother. That’s one lucky little girl!
    I’m in a bit of a workout slump right now. Ugh. I just need to get to bed earlier because that makes all the difference on if I get a workout in that next day or not.

  3. I’ve definitely been doing more indulging than running lately and I’m determined to make May a different story.
