I am in such a positive mood! :)  I’ve been doing a lot of deep breathing exercises lately, and I must admit that they are really working!   Although, I do feel a little corny doing it!


I’m done with work and the interview with Self magazine (it would be so exciting to have my little blog in a magazine! I would die!) and now I’m wrapping up lunch.  Next errand: PICK UP THE HUSBAND’S NEW BIKE! Yay!


I had a mid-afternoon snack around 10:30:


Chobani + a crushed Kashi TLC bar.


And I didn’t get to lunch until about 2!  I was starving!


I made a Flat Out Wrap with cheddar cheese, sprouts, and grilled tempeh. 


I swear there is tempeh in there — about 1/3 of a block — it’s just hiding behind the sprouts. 🙂


Plus a side salad:


And a piece of Dove Dark Chocolate:


Off to go get the Husband’s bicycle! I feel like Santa at Christmas. 🙂


PS – Check out the new Dave Matthews Band CD! It is SO good!  I especially love the song "My Baby Blue" and "Lying in the Hands of God."

    So cool that hubby is getting into biking with you! 🙂

  • Kristin P. June 5, 2009, 11:57 am

    What kind (brand) of Tempeh do you use? I want to try using it at home but am sure some are better than others. Thanks!

  • Brandi June 5, 2009, 11:58 am

    glad the interview went well! i LOVE SELF – it's the best.

    have fun getting the bike!

    I love DMB. Perfect summer music.

  • seesaraheat June 5, 2009, 12:15 pm

    Don't feel corny, they work! I took a stress management class a couple of months ago and I was amazed at how much deep breathing and visualization really help me get through. Have fun with the husband's bike!

  • Bec June 5, 2009, 12:21 pm

    can't wait to see the bike you got him!

  • Jenny June 5, 2009, 12:26 pm

    I just bought the new DMB CD yesterday! Did you see the concert on Fuse the other night? If not (and you get that channel), I think they're going to show it again on Saturday.

  • teacherwoman June 5, 2009, 12:42 pm

    Dove Dark Chocolate is da bomb! LOVE IT! And it's a perfect after-lunch sweet!

    Did you see DMB on the Today Show this morning?! LOVE 'em!

  • Melissa @ For the Love of Health June 5, 2009, 12:50 pm

    Now you'll have an excellent biking partner! Very exciting!

    That's so great you were interviewed for Self! You'll have to keep us posted!

    Awesome looking lunch!

  • runsarah June 5, 2009, 12:53 pm

    So exciting about your hubby getting a bike! Your wrap looks awesome, I love tempeh.

  • Caitlin June 5, 2009, 1:12 pm

    I love DMB too. They were on the Today show this morning-puts me in the mood for Summer for sure 🙂

    oh and I started crushing granola bars in milk or yogurt like you do. (such a great way to control my portions..as I normally would get too much granola otherwise!)

  • Melissa (fitnessnyc) June 5, 2009, 1:18 pm

    congratulations on being in SELF!

    I love shake me like a monkey from the Big Whiskey!

  • Kayla June 5, 2009, 1:19 pm

    Can't wait to read about you in Self!
    I LOVE the new DMB cd, those two songs both rock.

  • Jess June 5, 2009, 1:25 pm

    Oh, I love Dave Mathews! I like the "Funny the Way It Is" because it's so true.

    If you get published be sure to tell us all about it, ok? Because I'd want to read it for sure and am not a subcriber!

  • Natalie Rae June 5, 2009, 1:35 pm

    I just bought dave yesterday! I never buy CD's ever- it is a really good one. I like "you & me"

  • K from ksgoodeats June 5, 2009, 2:11 pm

  • Lisa June 5, 2009, 3:33 pm

    Hi Caitlin,

    Long time reader, first time commenter here. Love love love your blog and read it everyday! Who interviewed you at Self? My best friend works there and it would be very cool if she was the one who talked to you!

    Hope you're having a great day!


  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point June 5, 2009, 3:53 pm

    lisa – hi!! thanks for reading 🙂 it was a freelancer named erin.

  • april June 5, 2009, 4:23 pm

    That'd be awesome to be in Self! Good luck!

  • Island Girl Eats June 5, 2009, 4:35 pm

    That is so cool that you are getting your husband a bike. That will be nice for you to have a new bike buddy. Will you be doing a long bike ride with him this weekend? How fun!

  • inmytummy June 5, 2009, 4:37 pm

    That's awesome about Self. Do you know which issue it'll be in?

    I am a big time DMB fan and like the new CD a lot too. My favorites are Spaceman and Why I am. I think that Why I am refers to Leroi (who died) when Dave sings about Dancing with the GrooGrux king. Apparently that was his nickname and it gives a whole new meaning to that song.

  • NoMeatAthlete June 5, 2009, 5:36 pm

    Wow Self magazine, that is awesome! I wish my wife would get me a bike…

  • Elizabeth June 5, 2009, 5:45 pm

    Eeek! How exciting about Self?!?!

    Lovin' the new DMB CD…. just saw them at Fenway Park last week & (of course) they were AMAZING.
