Since my 10.0-mile run, I have done nothing except lie on the couch, eat, and watch Twilight.


If you’re new(er) to the blog, you might not know about the intense obsession I have with the Twilight books (and thus the movies).  I think I’ve seen the movie six times (ridiculous), and I’ve read each of the books at least twice.  I cannot wait until November 20 (when New Moon is released).  At 25, I’m probably way too old for this type of behavior, but I don’t care.  It’s the perfect romantic fantasy.


Have you seen the latest and greatest trailer?


I just hope the make up is better, the soundtrack is just as good, and the wolves don’t look cheesy.  🙂


While watching, I ate a veggie wrap with peanut sauce and rice:


Side of Pop Chips:


With some dark mint chocolate:


And a bowl of cereal:


OK, NOW I’m going to take a nap.  We are going to a swanky cocktail party/charity gala tonight, and I need to rest up!

    Congrats on your run! I love being able to lounge around after a long run…I'm currently doing the same!

  • eatingmachine August 29, 2009, 12:07 pm

    heh, it's fun to have some media obsessions!
    my fiance refuses to watch twilight, so i haven't seen it 🙁

  • Lauren August 29, 2009, 12:16 pm

    Caitlin!!!! I am so proud of you! Way to accomplish an amazing run today. Now go take a nap sweetheart, you deserve some rest.

    Congrats hun! 😉

  • lighterportions August 29, 2009, 12:23 pm

    Too old for fangirldome? Never. Especially when it comes to Twilight. Great way to unwind after a race I'd say.

    The gala sounds fab, have fun!

  • Nicole ( August 29, 2009, 12:25 pm

    Oh my, that is the greatest trailer yet!!!

  • Susan August 29, 2009, 12:26 pm

    I agree ….the werewolves look cartoonie. (if that's a word !)

  • Kiersten August 29, 2009, 12:31 pm

    I LOOOOOVE the Twilight books. I just reas them recently and am obsessed. I really liked the movie too, but it didn't do justice to the book. I can't wait for the next movie to come out, the trailer looks awesome!

  • Bec August 29, 2009, 12:32 pm

    Umm perfect saturday in my books! I just love Edward 🙂

  • liveloveeatandplay August 29, 2009, 12:36 pm

    At 28 I love Twilight and Harry Potter, nothing wrong with it!

  • Kathleen August 29, 2009, 12:41 pm

    I totally hear you about 24, I have read the books, seen the movies and obsessed over the new movie. I was worried the wolves would look really dumb, so I was relieved when the trailer came out and they look pretty good 🙂

    PS…you're never too old to love Twilight!

  • Graze With Me August 29, 2009, 12:42 pm

    Eeek, that trailer gave me CHILLS!

    Have fun dressing up tonight! I love doing that once in a while.

  • Kristi (sweet cheeks) August 29, 2009, 12:46 pm

    Ahhh I haven't seen that updated trailer yet! It looks sooooo good!!! Who cares how old you are; everybody should love Twilight like you do, haha. 🙂

  • Anne P August 29, 2009, 12:54 pm

    AHHHHHHHHHHH so obsessed with Twilight. I can't freaking wait for that movie to come out!!

  • Jenny August 29, 2009, 1:02 pm

    spent my day the same exact way. Is it awful that I'm seriously considering watching it over again?! eh, perhaps i'll just fast forward to Eddie's scene in the ray bands — i could watch that forev.

  • Susan August 29, 2009, 1:17 pm

    Sometimes the best thing about a tough workout is the lounging that follows 😉 I've been waiting for an opportunity to finish my second go-through of the Twilight series. I usually need to clear my calendar for a few days because once I start, I can't put them down!

  • Marisa (Trim The Fat) August 29, 2009, 1:18 pm

    I must confess, I loved the Twilight series, too. And I am waaaay too old for it – lol! But, I agree with you – great romantic fantasy.

    Mmm….dark mint chocolate!

  • Heather August 29, 2009, 1:19 pm

    You definitely aren't alone in your fandom! I'm 24 and only became obsessed recently. I kept making fun of my friends/co-workers who were hooked until they forced me to read the books. I've probably watched the movie way too many times to count since it came out on DVD. It's all Edward Cullen love! But I am excited for Jacob to get his shining moment 🙂 Okay, enough Twilight talk. Have fun tonight at Taste of the Nation! I read about it in the Calendar section on Friday, sounds good & I'm excited to see what kind of veg fare they have.

  • Coco August 29, 2009, 1:46 pm

    After seeing your twitter feed I rushed home from the gym and downloaded Twilight to rent on my Apple TV. After I'm done packing for my trip I'm kickin back and watching it!!! Thanks for reminding me! Last time I saw the movie I was on a plane and didn't really get the full effect of everything. Yummy bowl of cereal, I might have to eat one too while I watch! Have fun at your swanky party!

  • Jolene - EverydayFoodie August 29, 2009, 1:59 pm

    Have fun tonight!

  • Penny August 29, 2009, 2:15 pm

    EDWARD!!!! I love my husband, but I would totally leave him for Edward.
    And I firmly believe that Edward could love a 26-year-old mother of two. 🙂

  • Amanda August 29, 2009, 2:31 pm

    Yay! Another 20-something Twilight fanatic…I don't feel so bad now…LOL!

  • Runeatrepeat August 29, 2009, 2:37 pm

    Great job on the run!

  • angieinatlanta August 29, 2009, 3:10 pm

    HOLY LORD! Who gave that kid permission to get so jacked!?

    I'm excited!

  • Heather August 29, 2009, 3:52 pm

    That chocolate is my favorite!

  • Caitlin August 29, 2009, 4:27 pm

    Hey Caitlin–

    How do you clean the inside of your camel bak? I have had one for a while and am totally perplexed how to clean it…

  • Allison August 29, 2009, 4:45 pm

    I'm 26 (no age is too old for Twilight!) and coincidentally, I've been re-reading Twilight this weekend! Love the books, can't say I care for the movie. I have a new crop of fifth and sixth grade girls this year, all of whom are eager to read Twilight. They are all "fans" already and want to read the book now that they are getting old enough.

  • Angharad August 29, 2009, 4:47 pm

    Yay Brits indeed! Love it!
    Just caught up on your run re-cap – totally inspiring that you ran it so smoothly. I'm training for my first ever 10 mile race in a few weeks (eek!) and the longest I've gone to date is 8 miles. My training takes me up to 9 but that last mile will have to be accomplished on the day of the race. I'm pretty sure I won't be sleeping much the night before!
    Well done you!! Awesome work 🙂

  • TinaGirl August 29, 2009, 4:53 pm

    I am 31, the mother of a 7 and 9 year old boys and I am equally obsessed with Twilight as you. I'm so jealous of my sista who lives 3 hours away from FORKS and has been there, that I could turn green. Good job on the run by the way and lunch looks yummy!

  • seesaraheat August 29, 2009, 4:56 pm

    Great run! And I know ladies waaaay older than you who are even more obsessed with Twilight so no worries 😉

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  • Lizzy August 29, 2009, 5:30 pm

    have a fun night girl!!!

  • brandi August 29, 2009, 6:02 pm

    glad you had a good run! I hope you guys have fun tonight.

    I still haven't read any of the books or seen the movies! guess i better catch up 🙂

  • Kat (Kat's Daily Plate) August 29, 2009, 6:11 pm

    I'm watching Twighlight tonight too!

  • Jenna August 29, 2009, 6:11 pm

    I wish I could have laid around after my long run. Instead, I had to finish up packing and moving. Yuck!

    You are such an inspiration though girl! You are a large part of the reason why I took up running and, although it took a LONG time, to finally start my blog 🙂 So thank you for being such a rockstar!

    Have fun at the gala, I can't wait to hear about it!

  • Pam (Highway to Health) August 29, 2009, 6:22 pm

    Ahh love Edward and Bella. New Moon can't come out soon enough!

  • Paige@ Running Around Normal August 29, 2009, 7:06 pm

    Nice job on the 10 miles!! 🙂 That's so great. Hope you had fun tonight!

  • Nicci@NiftyEats August 29, 2009, 7:19 pm

    I can't wait till New Moon comes out…getting closer!

  • Kelsey August 29, 2009, 8:38 pm

    loooooove the new trailer!
    i actually watched twilight last night :]

  • Sarah W August 29, 2009, 8:39 pm

    I read the Twilight Saga last week on vacation – all 4 books in 1 week! piece of cake for me 🙂 LOVE LOVE LOVED IT.

    Then I watched the movie TONIGHT for the FIRST TIME ever.

    soooooooooooooooo good! (i'm 27) HEHEHEHE

  • Jenna August 29, 2009, 8:58 pm

    i have never seen and of the twilight movies or read any of the twilight books :/
    it looks like you had a night restful day after a nice long run!
    you deserved it 🙂

  • Anonymous August 30, 2009, 4:21 am

    I am a lump after my long runs, too. Yesterday, I read an article in Runner's World about how people can gain weight marathon training because they 1) overestimate calorie burn, 2) overeat to fuel, and 3) lounge around after long runs, when they'd otherwise be moving around, thereby actually burning fewer cals overall.

    Which is um, exactly what i do! When i was in school, and could do my long runs before class, I think it was a lot easier to get normal activity in. But a long run on a weekend? Yeah, I'm done for the next two days!

  • Beth August 30, 2009, 6:50 am

    As a Twilight fanatic you may already know about this, but just in case…..
    this is a partial version of the 1st book from Edward's point of view…it will change the way you look at everything 🙂 but be's unfinished and will leave you hanging..but it's just too good to miss!

  • chipped nails and all August 30, 2009, 7:25 am

    that clip of new moon is amazing! thanks for featuring it on your blog 🙂 I'm currently reading Twilight again…for at least the sixth time…..I just couldn't wait til November to start reading them again!

    Are you going to see the movie on opening night? I mat or may not take off work the day after so I can watch it again! And I think I've turned in to "that fan" lol..oh well.

  • Morgan (lifeafterbagels) August 30, 2009, 9:50 am

    Don't worry, I'm the same age as you and I love Twilight just as much (and certainly never thought I would). I even feel like watching the movie this afternoon myself. THANK YOU for the new trailer – awesome!

  • Stephanie August 31, 2009, 11:49 am

    you and me both! i feel too old to be as obsessed as i am. i see posters in stores and although i know i'm way too old for it, i kinda want it. hahaha
