If you haven’t read my 30 Day Shred Review yet, check it out on this post


My mouth is so happy! 🙂


Around 1:30, I had this Eat Natural bar, all the way from England!


I like how it says there’s nothing dodgy in it.   It was yummy, but very different tasting — I could tell it wasn’t the typical American bar.


Plus a side of melon.


Around 3 PM, a handful of nuts.


And a pre-workout snack: whole wheat toast and PB.  No picture!


After work was over, I went on a speedy 5K.  I was suppose to do 5.0 miles but I really didn’t think I would make it the entire way.  My knees have been irritating me lately, and I think it’s because I need new knee sleeves.  Mine are looking a little ragged!


Here are my run statistics:


  • Duration: 5K (26 minutes)
  • Calories Burned:  240 (estimate)


After my run, I slammed my favorite post-run snack: skim milk!  Plus, I wanted you guys to see how hot and sweaty I was… it’s like a million degrees in Florida now.




After drinking milk, I did Level 2 of the 30 Day Shred.  If you haven’t read my 30 Day Shred Review yet, check it out on this post! For the last shred day, I did Level 2 because its my favorite.


Then, our BFF Harry and I went out to get Thai food to celebrate his PROMOTION!! Yes, Harry got a nice cushy promotion.  I felt obligated to have some Singha beer to celebrate with him. 🙂


Frosty mugs rule!


We split spring rolls:


And I had Pa-naag Curry with Chicken.


It was made with a coconut curry base and was a little sweet and a little spicy.  I ate 1/2 with a scoop of white rice. MMM… can’t wait for the leftovers!


OK – Time to get my booty to bed.  Goodnight!

    I did Level 2 on my last day too since it was my favorite!

    And I looked the opposite after my 5 miler yesterday! I wore my tights and long sleeve tech tee with my ear band and gloves. It was brisk and misty/snowy.

  • K April 3, 2009, 5:09 am

  • RunToFinish April 3, 2009, 8:55 am

    hehe your brace does look a little worse for the wear, but that just means you’ve been working hard!

  • Thinspired April 3, 2009, 9:12 am

    It’s so cute–I can always tell that you have British influences when you say things like “dodgy” and “brekkie” 🙂 BRIT LOVE!

  • Sam April 3, 2009, 11:38 am

    Hey guys,
    None of you know me, but I’ve been a regular reader of Caitlin’s blog for a while now. If anyone’s interested in doing a swap – English goodies for American ones – let me know. I’ve love to try some of the American bars you all ate, because you can’t get them over here. And in return I can send you some Eat Natural bars (the cranberry, macademia and dark choc one is delish!) in return.

    I can’t believe how hot it is in Florida! We’re supposed to get snow in Ontario next week!!!!
