Cleaning Counts as Cardio

.... When you do it Caitlin-style!   I woke up this AM determined to get my apartment in order.  I'm the kind of girl who isn't satisfied unless her place reeks of Clorox and Febreeze.  Of course, cleaning has taken a backseat the last few weeks with my busy schedule.   I put on my [...]


Burning the Midnight Oil

I am up (and posting) way later than usual but... drumroll, please... the final draft of my book proposal has been sent to my agent!  Woo hoo!  It was a lot of hard work, but hopefully she'll like it... and hopefully some big-wig publisher will like it, too!  :)   What's something you've always dreamed [...]


Knew This Would Happen….

I've been checking my work e-mail to make sure no major fires start while I'm on my staycation.  Unfortunately, I found out earlier today that I have to "go into work" for a few hours to write a memo.  No big deal, but I knew this would happen!   My knees feel great after my [...]

A Sunny Six Miles

You want to know how to motivate yourself to get out of bed for a run?  Sign up for a marathon.  Seriously. Every time I want to skip a long run, I just think about running 26.2 miles and that is usually enough to motivate me to get my booty in gear.   I was [...]


More to Love

This evening was pretty tame.  I'm hoping to go to bed within the next hour!   Snacked on cereal: And dinner was a platter of yummy goodness. I had two Wasa crackers with hummus and steamed carrots: And tomato soup and corn on the cob.   More to Love - "Yay" or "Nay"?   I [...]


Retail Therapy

I did a little shopping this afternoon for the Healthy Living Summit.  I feel like I have a closet of clothes but nothing to wear to the conference itself! One of the trouble with working from home is that you basically live in sweatpants. :)   Fuel for shopping: I made a Green Monster with [...]


Tour De Orlando

Good morning!  So far, I've spent my stay-cation the best way I know how:  by getting in a GREAT workout!   I woke up at 6:30 to do a radio interview for Operation Beautiful, which was really fun.  After the interview was over, I promptly passed back out and woke up around 8:20.   The [...]


Magic 107.7

Orlando readers - I'm on Magic 107.7... RIGHT NOW!  6:45 AM!   Or, everyone can listen live here!   Update:  Interview is over. :) Going back to bed because I'm on STAYCATION!



I am officially on stay-cation (a vacation where I do not go anywhere!).  I'm sure I will get called into work for a few hours, but I'm pretty much free for the next 5.5 days! Yay!   On to the BIG announcement!  The winner of the Healthy Living Summit Golden Ticket giveaway is.... Julie said... [...]


Healthy Pizza

Can I go back to sleep? It's been a nutty day at work -- actually, it's been a nutty few weeks.  But I finally finished a HUGE project and the chances that I'll get to take that vacation at the end of the week are looking BRIGHT!   Have you noticed that you are hungrier [...]


Blueberry Overload and Summit Giveaway

I think I put a few too many blueberries in my oatmeal this morning: My oatmeal contained:   1/2 cup oatmeal 1/2 cup Stonyfield organic milk 1/2 cup water 1 sliced banana Toppings:  ton of blueberries and coconut It looks like it's going to be a beautiful day here in Central Florida!  I hope the [...]


How To Create Your Own Happiness

Wow! You guys had some interesting comments today!   Regarding the stomach issues:  After some online investigation and talking to my mother (who's a nurse), I do not think it is gallbladder stones, a food allergy, or acid reflux.  I think I'm just really, really freakishly busy and stressed and my stress is manifesting itself [...]


Oven Timer

Lately I've been twittering about how I really, really want a Garmin Forerunner.  I feel like I'm the last runner in the world without a Garmin, and I want one sooooo badly.   These tweets led to a funny discussion between Megan and I.  She asked how I time my runs if I don't wear [...]
