tuesday- 2 mile woggle(walk/jog) on TM + triceps and squats

I’m trying to do a few squats at the end of every workout. I’ve read a few articles saying it’s really good for labor, so why not? ha I’ve also started walking a lap then jogging 2 laps(at a VERY slow) pace, but a jog nonetheless=)

My SIL Whitney took us to a new spot in Springville, UT. J thought it was so fun to play at the ‘beach’ (reservoir) and we had fun just chatting and eating the afternoon away haha

I’ve mentioned before we found a new shaved ice hut that is just so perfect on summer nights. J was just a wee bit excited for his rainbow flavored ice.

Sleep, hmm it’s not great, but I do manage to get a good 20 min nap in everyday that I just love! J will snuggle up next to me and watch a show and I’ll snooze for a bit. I love that time with J.

Best Moment

The best moment was finishing all my projects. I don’t have much else to do to prepare for baby girl, so it’s nice to just put the finishing touches on a few things and then hopefully she’ll make her debut. Here’s a sneak peak of how the nursery is coming along. I still need to hang a few things then I’ll do a full tour.

Food Cravings

Anything cold! I’m just so hot all the time, anything cold or refreshing(ahem see above picture of shaved ice) is what I want 99% of the time. I’ve been eating mangoes and nectarines since they were on sale this week.

Food Aversions

I still get bad heart burn with anything spicy or tomato based(salsa, pizza, etc) so I’ve been trying to avoid those.


Luckily I’ve been able to be pretty active. I’m starting to walk a lot because I’m really hoping she can come early like J did. I’m still so incredibly grateful my sciatica is gone, it’s wonderful.

This week I physically feel pretty good, just achy and a lot more contractions which I’m totally fine with(bring on baby!). I’ve also felt VERY moody. I’ll just wake up in such a crabby mood and then I’m pretty short fused all day. My boys are champs for putting up with me.

how are you staying cool this summer?

what’s your favorite cold treat?

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. You are looking great and I can’t believe how far along you are! So close! My favorite cold treat at the moment is cottage cheese with grapes! It is so refreshing in the middle of the afternoon!

    Oh my heartburn is pretty bad now too. I’m less than a week behind you and getting all my checklist items done so my family and I can just pick up our bags n head out! We can both see the light at the end of the tunnel, thankfully the summer isn’t too hot!
