Let Sleeping Dogs Lay (Lie?)

in All Posts

I wish this was my life:


That’s Maggie sleeping on her window shelf.  Our friend Harry is a carpenter and he made the dogs a padded perch so they can see out of my second-floor office.  She sleeps like that for hours a day.


Anyway, on to food!


I noticed today that I haven’t been eating a mid-morning snack.  The honeymoon threw off my eating schedule (of course)!   I didn’t get hungry until 11:30, so I had an early lunch.


I used the cashew butter hummus I made last night to creative a very yummy vegetarian sammie.


Con cherries on the side…


And pickles and carrots…


Injury Prevention


So many of you mentioned that you DO, in fact, have running or workout-related injuries that flare up from time to time.  If you  haven’t checked out the Runner’s World Injury Prevention page (in case you  haven’t noticed, I heart RW), please browse it!  It has tons of helpful information for preventing and healing a myriad of injuries. 


There’s even a cool "What Hurts?" search button that lets you discover potential causes if you have a "ghost" injury. 


Have a great afternoon!

    Hi Mrs.Boyle 🙂

    Here is a comment/question related to the injury talk this morning…
    Not an injury, but another consequence of training is….losing your period. I’m not a runner (oh heavens no), but I do ballet, pilates, yoga, weights, etc, and I haven’t had a period in many, many moons (PS I’m 23 and the aforementioned activities, though intensive, are still done on a purely recreational level)

    What do you/any of the readers think about amenorrhea? I have energy, I’m athletic, I’m happy, my clothes fit fine, etc., but my primary physician would like to see me gain weight until my cycle resumes. I don’t care if I weigh more, but I know the periods aren’t likely to come back unless my body fat % is increased….a prospect I’m not so keen on.

    hahahah I often look at Frank and think about the wonderful life he has ;). We are going to have a spot just like that in our new house and we’re getting a cushion made for Frank because I know he is going to live on it! Lunch looks awesome!

    Yummy sandwich! Lovin’ the pickle addition!

    Hi there! Well, I’m not a doctor and this should not replace your medical doctor’s opinion.

    However, our supplement store does offer a great deal of natural alternatives for regaining your period due to amenorrhea.

    registration is required to purchase most of these products (go to: https://theholisticdoctorisin.com/shop/register.php to register).

    you can browse some of the products related to amenorrhea here (register first or you won’t be able to see any of the products):


    if you would like to discuss any of these supplements/herbs with dr. cushing (my father in law), you can call him at the office (386) 437-4778. just tell the receptionist i directed to you to the site and you have questions for the doctor.

    hope that helps!

    That sandwich looks amazing. You always have the prettiest presentations, Caitlin! I love the cherry/carrot/PICKLE colors all together.

    Thanks for sharing the Runner’s World link with everyone… their site helped me self-diagnose my stress fracture!

  • chasedaylight January 21, 2009, 11:29 am

    That’s such a great link! Thank you so much for it 🙂 Since I just started running a little over 2 months ago, I feel like it’s too soon for an injury, but that one might be looming one day, scares me to death! I’m exploring the injury prevention page right now 😀

  • Kailey January 21, 2009, 11:43 am

    Hey Caitlin! I’ve been reading your blog for months now, and I love the new name/philosophy!
    Oh, and about the title, lay vs. lie– in this case it would be lie (intransitive verb, present tense). haha I’m a grammar nerd.

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point January 21, 2009, 11:46 am

    kailey! hahah you’re the best. thanks for the grammar lesson.

    Love the eats!!

  • Elizabeth (thelongweigh) January 21, 2009, 12:02 pm

    I love Runners World. I’m still really new to running, but it’s helped me with so many things. I’m having weird knee things happen, but it’s never been pain. It’s definitely something I want to take care of BEFORE it becomes an injury though. From you and RW, I’ve been able to figure out things that will help me! Thanks for the great info all the time!

  • Anonymous January 21, 2009, 12:32 pm

    I love your dogs!!

  • K January 21, 2009, 12:38 pm

    Maggie is ADORABLE! I just want to squeeze her 🙂

    As a future PT, I am all over that link – thanks for posting!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point January 21, 2009, 12:38 pm

  • Sharon January 21, 2009, 1:20 pm

    Oh wow, I love sandwiches! I need to try hummus in sandwiches!

  • Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) January 21, 2009, 1:27 pm

    I will have to try putting cashew butter in with hummus. YUM!

    I love Maggie’s freckles. So cute.

  • brandi January 21, 2009, 2:26 pm
