So, those two beers really filled me up last night, and by the time I went to sleep (10:30…. I’m lame), I wasn’t very hungry.  But when the boys (Future Husband, his best man, and his brother) came home at 2:00 AM drunk as skunks, I woke up and realized I was QUITE hungry.  So, I ate a slice of bread while laying in bed and then went back to sleep. 🙂


We’re going to go watch the Hurricanes whoop Virginia at the bar today, so I knew I had to squeeze in a early morning workout.  Before I left, I had 1/2 cup of Grape Nuts, skim milk, and a sliced banana


Grape Nuts is one of the few dry cereals I portion out.  It’s 200 calories for 1/2 cup, so it’s really easy to accidentally inhale 500 calories if you aren’t paying attention.


At the gym, I did 20 minutes on the elliptical and then another 10 on the indoor rowing machine.  I did resistance intervals while on the elliptical to make it more interesting (2 minutes at Level 6, 2 minutes at Level 8, 2 minutes at Level 10, and 2 minutes at Level 12).


I love the indoor rower because it’s a cardio exercise that also works my arms.  It’s nice to give my leggies a break!


I also did some arm strength exercises, like bicep curls and tricep dips.


Here are my statistics:


  • Duration: 38 minutes
  • Average Heart Rate: 139 bpm
  • Maximum Heart Rate: 171 bpm
  • Calories Burned: 254


Meghann and I were discussing workout playlists yesterday.  She loves to run to show tunes, and you guys know I LOVE pop music (especially Britney Spears!).  I wanted to share with you my See Bride Run playlist… these songs are ALL great running songs:

I had a plum and a Z-Bar.


Off to watch the CANES!!! Let’s go team!


What’s your favorite workout song?  Have a nice Saturday and I’ll see you later!

    Morning Caitlin!

    thanks for the playlist, I am always looking for new tunes!

    I don’t really have a particular favorite song, but I have different playlists for what I am going to do. Walking with Ed is usually slower paced songs.

    I have a spinning playlist. One of the things I miss when my office moved was the gym NEXT DOOR that had great spinning classes.

    So now I just have music as if I were in a spin class switching between sprints and hills.

    Have fun watching the game!

  • strongandhealthy November 1, 2008, 7:59 am

    I love working out to Britney Spears too…although I hate to admit that to people! So glad I’m not the only one! Have a great day!

  • Laura November 1, 2008, 8:13 am

    I don’t have a favorite song, but my iPod is loaded with pop music for the gym too. 🙂 I’ve got Britney on there, along with old Madonna songs, Outkast, Fergie. I like catchy songs with a beat when I workout.

  • Kimberly November 1, 2008, 8:21 am

    “Crazy in Love” by Beyonce, “Before He Cheats” by Carrie Underwood, and “Fighter” by Christina Aguilera are my top 3 running songs! “Stuck,” “Eye of the Tiger,” “I Will Survive,” and the Mamma Mia soundtrack are also way up on the list.

    I love Grape-Nuts (or these days, Publix Nutty Nuggets)… I grew up eating them heated up in the microwave, and topped with honey. Great substitute for oats in the winter 🙂

  • VeggieGirl November 1, 2008, 8:23 am

    GREAT playlist!!!

    Enjoy the game!!!

    **My favorite workout song:

    “Show Me The Money” by Petey Pablo (it’s in the beginning of the movie ‘Step Up’)

  • lee November 1, 2008, 8:50 am

  • Katie November 1, 2008, 8:59 am

    Also one of my favorite “going out” songs… “The Way I Are” by Timbaland. The beat is really good for pounding the pavement! Have fun at the game!

  • Erica November 1, 2008, 9:15 am

  • Julie November 1, 2008, 9:36 am

    I love running to pop music! Some r&b is good too, like lil' wayne, T.I and Larry Rudolph. My new fave running songs are got money by lil wayne and just dance by lady gaga.

    You and the future hus look so cute in matching fan gear!

  • amanda November 1, 2008, 9:54 am

    ooh i love seeing what other people run to!
    some of my favs (other than the ones you already listed):
    outkast – bombs over baghdad
    red hot chili peppers – higher ground
    finger eleven – paralyzer
    metro station – shake it
    the killers – somebody told me
    kanye – stronger
    bruce – born to run
    hairspray soundtrack – you can’t stop the beat

    🙂 have fun at the game!

  • greendogwine November 1, 2008, 10:01 am

    Aww you and future hubby look adorable in that picture! 🙂

    That Pussycat Dolls song is my absolute favorite to run to!

  • Shauna November 1, 2008, 10:34 am

    Bruce Springsteen – “Born to Run”
    Aerosmith – “Cryin'”

    Those are my two favorites 🙂 Yay for Grape Nuts!

  • Oh She Glows November 1, 2008, 10:40 am

    My favourite workout song right now is Womanizer by Britney! It’s great to workout to. I love her music for working out and cutting a rug on the dance floor!

  • Amanda November 1, 2008, 10:44 am

    I went to sleep at 10:30 last night too! I love sleep. 🙂

    I don’t work out to music any more. My treadmill faces the TV, so I have it on, but no sound. Basically I run while watching images on the TV… no sound. It’s amazing that I can actually run like that. You’d think I would get bored!

  • Neesha and Dustin November 1, 2008, 11:07 am

    I love, and this is going to be super weird, to run to “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” (yes, the Christmas song).

    Also, I hate to plug my own blog on here…but if you ladies have run marathons or halfs or triathalons and want to donate your medals to a great cause…check out

    Also, Caitlin…good playlist. Some I’d never thought of and will have to steal!

  • Catherine November 1, 2008, 11:44 am

    Yayy I’m always looking for news songs to add to my running playlist!! I have alot of those already, but some other favorite are some cheesy 80’s songs just because they’re upbeat and make me want to keep going like…

    – “Hungry Like the Wolf” – Duran, Duran
    – “Born to run” – Bruce Springsteen
    – Bon Jovi… etc

    ooh and Lady Gaga!

  • Juliet November 1, 2008, 1:00 pm

    Thanks for sharing your playlist! I’m always on the lookout for great workout songs to put on my ipod.

    My favorite workout song (don’t laugh) is Barbie Girl… 🙂

  • Lauren November 1, 2008, 1:20 pm

    Favorite workout song: “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child. SO GOOD! I love it. Gets me pumped!

    Have a great Saturday!

  • Lindsay November 1, 2008, 3:12 pm

  • Balance, Joy and Delicias! November 1, 2008, 3:13 pm

    thanks for sharing your playlist!

    And what are grape nuts? nuts or cereal?

  • Susan November 1, 2008, 3:24 pm

    I actually don’t run with music, but I wanted to stop by and say that I love Buffalo Wild Wings! I always get the buffalo ranch wrap (ranch on the side)! Enjoy the game…and the food, of course!

  • Erin of Care to Eat November 1, 2008, 3:34 pm

    I’m curious to see what you’ll get at wild wings! I’ve only tried their blackened chicken salad.
    I don’t run anymore, but when I did I listened to classic rock!

  • Sharney November 1, 2008, 3:39 pm

    GREAT playlist!! That will definitely keep you moving and motivated! Thanks for the ideas 🙂

    Hope you and the FH had a wonderful day watching the Canes. Did they win?! The picture of the two of you is soooooo cute! What a great looking couple you are 🙂

    Hope you are having a fabulous Saturday!

    P.S. I ran the 12 miles!!!!! I’m still in shock 🙂

  • D10 November 1, 2008, 3:43 pm
