Afternoon!  Thanks SO much for all your advice regarding our gym membership!


  • I checked out the Planet Fitness website and there is a gym within 2.0 miles of my house (who knew!).  We’re going to go check it out this weekend.  If we could reduce our gym fees from $75 to $20, we will definitely switch.
  • You’re right about not giving up our gym membership right before summer hits.  It’s too hot not to have access to a treadmill.


In other news…. how depressing is it that I’m wearing this shirt today?  I’m no longer a bride. 🙁


My mid-morning snack was WW toast and 1/4 cup cottage cheese. MMM!


And lunch consisted of: 2 Flat Out Wraps filled with an egg, cheddar cheese, and spinach.


These little guys were DIVINE and took me a lot longer to eat than a regular old egg sammie would’ve.






And here’s your dose of Maggie for the week.  I’ve been scrimping on Maggie pictures, I’m sorry! 🙂


Don’t hate her because she’s beautiful!


(Pissed I woke her up).

    Aw she’s so cute! We used to have a Golden named Maggie 🙂

  • Erica March 11, 2009, 9:45 am

    haha- I still wear some of my Bride to be t’s/tanks. Mostly to clean or lounge around in 😉

    Maggie is so adorable. She has the cutest little puppy figure!

  • VeggieGirl March 11, 2009, 9:45 am

    MAGGIE!!!!! 😀

  • Amanda @ Fake Ginger March 11, 2009, 9:53 am

    Aww, Maggie’s so cute! I love her spots.

  • mel March 11, 2009, 9:53 am

    aww I’m a bride to be and I can’t wait for showers and such so I can get a cute shirt too! haah! I missed the gym convo yesterday, but I have an elliptical in my apartment, as well as weights and yoga videos that I use on a daily basis and when it’s warm I love to walk and run outside! Have you thought about investing in an elliptical or tredmill and a few weights so you can do that instead of the gym?

  • Dori March 11, 2009, 9:54 am

    Maggie is so adorable, I want a puppy so much! Your wraps look fantastic as always. Jealous you have a Planet Fitness near you, none near me! And my outrageous gym price is WITH my corporate discount.

  • Tami March 11, 2009, 9:56 am

    i forgot that it’s hot down there, it’s just getting “warm” up here.

  • dailydulcie March 11, 2009, 9:59 am

    ahh Maggie is so ADORABLE!!! 🙂

    I need to get my hands on some of those flat out wraps..

  • greendogwine March 11, 2009, 10:04 am

    Maggie’s face in the second picture literally made me laugh out loud. She is so damn cute – and totally hating you for disturbing her lounging 🙂

  • therunningaddict March 11, 2009, 10:12 am

    Maggie is so cut!!!
    Im glad you may have found an alternative for the gym

  • Ryane March 11, 2009, 10:14 am

    I just joined Planet Fitness and they were running a promotion where if you sign up for the Blackcard membership ($20/mo) they waived the initial fee. There’s an annual fee of $40 or so in June but that’s that.
    Maybe they’re offering the same deal at the one near you!

  • Brandi March 11, 2009, 10:15 am

    that would be great if that gym is good!

    love the maggie pics 🙂

    I say – once a bride, always a bride!

  • Annie March 11, 2009, 10:18 am

    Haha. The last picture just made me laugh out loud at my desk. She is adorable. 🙂

  • Jen March 11, 2009, 10:25 am

    We all need a little Maggie in our lives

  • Erin March 11, 2009, 10:57 am

    Yay for Maggie!
    Hope you figure out the gym thing!

  • Kailey (SnackFace) March 11, 2009, 11:03 am

    Maggie made my afternoon! She’s so frickin’ cute. Don’t you love wraps? I always feel as though I can taste the innards better than I could on a sammie.

  • Melissa (Nibbles and Wiggles) March 11, 2009, 11:14 am

    Glad you got the gym thing worked out!

    And, might I just say… mmmm runny eggs

  • Danielle March 11, 2009, 11:24 am

    Maggie is too cute!
    And I love that egg wrap you made!

  • Becca March 11, 2009, 11:28 am

    Yum, runny egg wrap….mmmm

    LOL @ Maggie. I get that look whenever I try to sneak up and get a sleeping shot.

  • Missy March 11, 2009, 11:31 am

    Wow your wraps look amazing and your pictures are so perfect. Cute dog!!

  • Brooke March 11, 2009, 11:38 am

    I’ve recently joined Planet Fitness. It’s obviously not the greatest gym in the world but it’s definitely worth the $20. I bought the black membership so I could use their massage chairs and tanning…

  • eatingRD March 11, 2009, 12:04 pm

    Don’t wake the sleeping beauty! She needs her beauty sleep 🙂 So adorable thanks for the pic


  • Run Saraah March 11, 2009, 12:44 pm

    Your doggie is way too cute! I need to get a tank/top like that for my wedding!

  • Kelly March 11, 2009, 12:45 pm

    Your dog is so cute. 🙂

    Those wraps look so good. I almost shorted out the computer with drool. I HAVE to find some of those flat out wraps.

  • Ali March 11, 2009, 12:45 pm

    Caitlin, what is Maggie’s breed. I have a mini dachshund and I feel like she looks dachshund-like.

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point March 11, 2009, 12:46 pm

    everyone- maggie says thank you!

    ali- maggie is a weiner dog, too! she’s a standard dachshund, she is just a funny color called piebald. its a recessive trait and very rare.

  • Emily March 11, 2009, 12:48 pm

    Hhaha, love the pic of Maggie. Being a dog is so hard.

    Everyone is buzzing about those flat-out wraps. I’m going to check for those at the grocery today.

  • RunToFinish March 11, 2009, 1:01 pm

    mm I had a yummy wrap today too! need to make those more at home

  • Haleigh March 11, 2009, 1:34 pm

    Maggie is too cute! She remind me of my dachshund Snickers! Those type of dogs are so fun to be around. And that wrap looks soo good!

  • Bec March 11, 2009, 1:50 pm

    your dog is adorable!

  • BOBBI McCORMICK March 11, 2009, 2:16 pm

    love the pics of MAGS! OOO and you are always your hubbys bride;)

  • emily March 11, 2009, 2:50 pm

    Props to you for rocking the “bride to be!” I have 8 different versions of those pre-wedding t-shirts and I have no idea what to do with them! Does anytone think they would sell on e-bay?

  • Wiggs (The Beholder) March 11, 2009, 3:07 pm

    Oh my gosh, Maggie is SO cute! I’ve been trying to convince my fiance to get a dachshund with me, but I think I might have to surprise him with a puppy before he admits how amazing they are.

    About the gym: I wrote about a strength training workout I did on Monday for my half-marathon program, and honestly, I didn’t need the gym for it. I only ended up using one machine (and that was on impulse). The rest of the time, hand weights were enough to make me S-O-R-E the next day! I say ditch the gym, espcially when you live in a climate that’s not too crummy, weather-wise.

  • ksgoodeats March 11, 2009, 3:40 pm

    Maggie is looking pretty fierce in that last picture 🙂

    Cottage cheese on toast is one of my favorite combos ever!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point March 11, 2009, 4:05 pm

    emily – probably! its worth a shot!

    wiggs – weiners rule!!! definitely get one!!

  • kristine March 11, 2009, 4:51 pm

    maggie is too cute!

  • Trish March 12, 2009, 8:11 am

    Very cute dog! 🙂

  • healthy ashley March 12, 2009, 11:21 am

    I’m making your lunch for my breakfast tomorrow. Mmm!

    David belongs to a Planet Fitness and likes it there (when he goes!). Good luck!

  • MyRunningJourney March 12, 2009, 11:42 am

    Aww Maggie’s face in the 2nd pic is priceless. Like she’s saying, “mom, seriously? are you kidding?” 🙂
