Ladies’ Night

in All Posts

Oh no — I’m drogging (drunk blogging!).  :)  I had a really fun evening with my friend Neely and her friend Brittnay.

 

But before all that, I actually made it to the gym!  And I got to wear my new knee sleeves, which were amazing!

Note to self:  knee sleeves need to be replaced every 3 months, NOT every 6 months!  These were so much tighter and I could actually feel them working!

 

I did a cardio session and then a quick strength training session

 

  • 9 minute mile on the treadmill (yay for running!)
  • 11 minutes on the elliptical
  • 30 push-ups
  • 50 bicycle crunches
  • 30 reverse crunches

 

Sweaty and fast!

 

After my workout, I ate a ginormous bowl of watermelon:

And I got ready for my ladies’ night out!  Look – something BESIDES work clothes or gym clothes!

Taking self-portraits in the mirror totally makes me feel like a 12-year old on MySpace.  šŸ™‚

 

I ate a quick and stabilizing dinner before leaving for the bar:

I had a side salad and a boiled corn on the cob with a half a pizza bagel:

Amazing!  I love whole wheat bagels.

 

Drinks with the girls was very fun.  It was nice to see Neely again and meet her friend!

I drank 1 and 1/2 glasses of pinot grigio:

I forgot how FUN it is to go out for drinks.  My schedule has been so hectic lately, and I definitely need to do this more often.  I’m too young to stay in every weekend.  šŸ˜‰

 

Off to bed I go!  See you for a THIRTY + MILE BIKE RIDE!

    Hey looks like you had a great time. Love your outfit!

    I have a question about the knee sleeves – do you really feel that they helped with your knee pain? They just stabilize the knee? I’ve been sidelined with a knee injury (which sounds similar to yours) and was told a knee brace wouldn’t do anything, but I’m curious about the sleeves, especially when I start running again!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point May 24, 2009, 4:02 am

    taylor – i think they helped reduce knee pain, although they did not get rid of it completely (obviously!) LOL. the sleeves work by preventing your patellar bone from tracking laterally (left and right) which reduces pain and helps minimize further damage to your joints. i hope that helps!

    LOVE the outfit šŸ™‚ Girls nights are fun I think I need to schedule one I seem to be stuck in work clothes/workout clothes a lot šŸ˜‰ But then do you find that you REALLY own nothing but those two options? LOL Glad the knee sleeves are helping, my knees were giving me fits yesterday. Hope you enjoyed your night and good luck on the bike ride!

    Every time you “drog” your posts make complete sense…I think you need to drink more and really entertain us!

    Drogging is the best! I typed up an entry once but luckily I didn’t post it because it was SO embarrassing!!

    I LOVE that dress! You look beautiful!

  • MaryBe May 24, 2009, 6:41 am

  • NoMeatAthlete May 24, 2009, 8:28 am

    Drogging = funny!

    As a runner with some knee issues, I’d love to hear more about the knee sleeves. Were they recommended by a doctor? What do they do? Have you noticed good results with them? Thanks, no more questions šŸ™‚

  • Jordan May 24, 2009, 1:53 pm

    awww you look amazing caitlin =]

  • Nate May 24, 2009, 5:25 pm

    Drogging is a link to me? I swear I’m sober when I post that stuff, but I appreciate the shout out.

  • elise May 24, 2009, 7:33 pm

    love the dress, love the drogging, love the sexy knee braces…

    12 year old on myspace, haha, totally!

  • seesaraheat May 25, 2009, 5:33 pm

    That dress looked fabulous on you! I have been trying to dress up more lately for nights out but have yet to master the 12 year old self portrait. Perhaps I should ask a 12 year old for some tips?! Haha. Glad you enjoyed yourself, I know what you mean, sometimes I feel like i’m 27 going on 70 with staying in all the time.
