What is Time, Anyway?

in All Posts

Evening!  First of all, I must say THANK YOU to the following individuals for contributing to my Team in Training efforts:


  • Paul Noris

  • Emily M.
  • Angela (Oh She Glows)


Today was just a normal day otherwise — lots of working!


I had a LOT of snacks this afternoon because my lunch was so wimpy.  Mid-afternoon snacks included Oikos and Kashi TLC bar:


PB and carrots:


And Kashi Heart to Heart:


And an Amazing Grass Chocolate with a banana blended in:


After the night shift, I stopped off at the gym and ran 2.0 miles.  The whole time I was thinking "Can’t believe I’m going to do this times 13 miles!" Eckkk!


  • Duration:  18:30 minutes
  • Distance: 2.0 miles
  • Calories Burned: 160


I came home to leftover Thai food (Pan Naag with tofu) that the Husband saved for me:


Ohmigod — that Husband and I just had a huge discussion about:


  • Whether aliens exist
  • Whether time is linear or not
  • Whether time exists at all
  • Whether there is a beginning and an end to the universe

My brain hurts!

    I took a class that talked about that time stuff. So confusing! Somehow I did really well, but I really don't know what I learned! Patrick and I want to donate…. after payday 🙂 hehe.

  • Priyanka June 30, 2009, 6:48 pm

    Haha, you won't believe this we had the discussion on the same topics on Sunday after dinner. Not only did my brain hurt but my tooth pain aggravated!!

  • Kailey (SnackFace) June 30, 2009, 7:06 pm

    Caitlin- I just read the article about Operation Beautiful and had chills the whole time. You are such a powerhouse, and your movement is only going to grow. I can't even believe it!

    Um, I adore the dinner convos! So cute. Have a great night! 🙂

  • Christina June 30, 2009, 7:12 pm

    I love random convos like that. Sounds interesting!

  • gina (fitnessista) June 30, 2009, 7:15 pm

    we have conversations about "forever" ALL the time- so creepy!!!!! whenever i want to mess with the pilot (and the conv starts again) i say, "time never ends. ever"
    have a great night!

  • Casey @ Double Scooped June 30, 2009, 7:22 pm

    Omg this is so weird and random…but I was looking up birthday cake recipes for my dog and..


    Is this Maggie?!? hahaha

  • Elizabeth June 30, 2009, 7:24 pm

    I have never had PB & Carrots together before… I should try it =) And that drink looks like something I had at Starbucks today (Choco and Banana smoothie)!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point June 30, 2009, 7:25 pm

    casey HAHHAHAHAH yes that is maggie! she is famous!!! she's a doggie cake model.

  • leslie June 30, 2009, 7:26 pm

    panang curry is my favorite thai dish! yum. now you have me thinking about time and MY brain hurts!

  • Low June 30, 2009, 7:27 pm

    Anything related with astronomy blows my mind… black holes? Infinity? So mind boggling! Have you ever seen Donnie Darko?

  • Joelle (Chasing Pavements) June 30, 2009, 7:28 pm

    Mmmm I love thai food! Plus that amazing greens looks pretty good!

  • Mrs. LC June 30, 2009, 7:28 pm

    Girl, you amaze me. If I were you after your days I would just want to come home and go to bed, and you're having these deep convos! lol you're awesome. 🙂

  • Amber June 30, 2009, 7:29 pm

    Congrats on the OB article!! I saw it on KERF! So cool and inspiring!

  • Casey @ Double Scooped June 30, 2009, 7:29 pm

    hahaha that is so funny I was like… hmm, weird, that dog looks familiar.
    Then I double-checked and decided there was no way there was another dog named Margaret Thatcher. =) lol. how did that happen?!

  • haya June 30, 2009, 7:32 pm

    just read the OB article in the orlando sentinel. AWESOME. I haven't left any notes yet but you can sure bet i am going to start 😉

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point June 30, 2009, 7:32 pm

    casey – for maggie's birthday last summer i posted the photo and a link to that women's blog and she contacted me to ask if maggie could be on the blog BECAUSE SHE IS SO BEAUTIFUL 🙂

  • Ashleigh June 30, 2009, 7:51 pm

    You are more than welcome!

  • elliebelle June 30, 2009, 8:10 pm

    Sometimes when freaky topics like time come up, I have to avoid them! It just makes my head spin so I try to focus on the now. 🙂 Seems to help a little. haha….I just laughed after seeing the doggie cupcake. that was cute!

  • Hallie June 30, 2009, 8:10 pm

    You two were sober, right 😉 or was there something in that Amazing Grass you left out?

    (Sorry, I'm sure that was way innapropriate.)

    YAY for signing up for the marathon, by the way. That's seriously so amazing, and I think doing a charity race is much more meaningful when you have a personal connection to the cause.

  • Allison R. June 30, 2009, 8:11 pm

    My boyfriend and I always go nuts over whether or not the universe ends!!!! It's so mind boggling when you think about it…if it doesn't come to an end, is it growing? If it's growing, what space is it growing into? AHHHH!!!

  • Sarah June 30, 2009, 8:11 pm

    those are some tough questions! what an after-dinner debate!

    p.s. loved the article on operation beautiful in the paper WAY TO GO!!!

  • Amanda June 30, 2009, 8:18 pm

    Ahh I tend to get deep into convos about that stuff, or just all up in my head, and then it freaks me out bc the answers are obviously unknown!!

    Also, CONGRATS on signing up for the marathon – know you will be great. And I am very sorry to hear about your friend.

    Finallly, congrats about the newspaper article! Your operation is blowing up!!!

  • just me June 30, 2009, 8:23 pm

    congrats on signing up for the marathon and team in training. i actually just found out that i lost a long time high school friend to hodgkins lymphoma…i'm really happy for what you're doing to help.

    and damn, that's one intense dinner convo. my brain would hurt too!

  • roseyrebecca June 30, 2009, 8:31 pm

    This may sound weird but your carrots always look so good! haha

  • Jess June 30, 2009, 8:32 pm

    Love the curry and super love your conversation topics with the hubby…I sure hope I get to meet you guys sometime, cause those could be some amazing "chit-chats" 😀
    Enjoy your evening!

  • hopeinpeanutbutterandoats June 30, 2009, 8:41 pm

    oh goodness i hate getting on the topic of time, higher beings, heaven/hell…they drain my brain! but it always makes me feel quite philosophical and smart afterwards 🙂

    i told my therapist today about O.B. and she was just in awe! she's going to start sticking post-it's at the hospital i used to be it to encourage the patients!

  • Sarah (LovIN My Tummy) June 30, 2009, 10:07 pm

    OMG, I just discussed with my husband, "What stinks?"

  • Thinspired July 1, 2009, 12:23 am

    Just saw the Operation Beautiful article–so exciting!! Congrats!

  • Girl on Top July 1, 2009, 4:55 am

    I love the Panang dish!

  • seesaraheat July 1, 2009, 5:40 am

    Whoa, that is some deep conversation especially after you've worked hard all day 🙂

    Is the chocolate Amazing Grass blended with a banana better than just by itself (in milk)?

  • Amanda's Eats July 1, 2009, 5:56 am

    Haha I love having weird discussions like that!
