Soaking up the last days of Summer

The past couple of days I have had a lot more energy. No it’s not because Lily is sleeping through the night(not even close and I’m totally okay with that. Newborn snuggles are way better than sleep;)) but I think I’m just recovering. The body really is an amazing thing. I really have felt pretty good other than being pretty beat by the end of the day.

I don’t feel pressure or anxious to get back to running, but I am excited to. I just love the feeling a good workout gives you and I’m excited to get back to that. Oh and I’ve been saving my workout playlist for my first workout. I won’t let myself listen to the songs until my first workout, it’s seriously one of my biggest motivators to get out and run ha.

So since I haven’t been working out, I’ve just been soaking up these days with my kids(yes plural, that sounds so weird!) and enjoying the last month of summer.

For family night we got outside and played Bocce ball. Josh barely won, and I may still be a bit bitter about it.

Lots of snuggling. J has been such a sweet heart. The other day L was screaming in the car and he just kept saying, ” It’s okay sweetie we’re almost home.” Melts my heart.

Ahem, speaking of the day she was screaming in the car…we were coming back from Cherry Hill and I thought she had eaten enough. Wrong! So I pulled off the freeway, fed her, changed her diaper, and then got back on the road. J was very patient, and I learned my lesson.

We ventured out to Cherry Hill. I didn’t swim, but watched all the kids have fun and enjoyed being outside. Last week I was getting cabin fever and it feels so good to get out this week. I think Lily enjoyed it too.

J had a blast with his cousin Max. Snow cones for the last day of Cherry Hill!

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. I love how my oldest takes care of her sister, the things she says is so cute! I’ve also pulled off the highway to nurse my babies. I found it hard to entertain Lilly when I had to feed Hilary sometimes but you find a way!
