I feel like I’ve been the ultimate tease lately about my upcoming life changes — it’s just about balancing my personal, professional, and blog life.  :(  I’m sorry.  Please don’t be mad that I’ve left you in suspense all this time… you never know who is reading so I had to be careful!


I CAN tell you that I will be announcing three MAJOR life changes tomorrow.  Not one, not two, but THREE huge changes!    It’s scary and exciting all at the same time.  In less than 24 hours, my entire life has been flipped upside down. 


Hint:  I’m NOT pregnant.  🙂


Today was so busy that I made the classic rookie mistake of failing to adequately snack throughout the afternoon.  I did take a minor break to snack on some Stacy’s Pita Chips


And for dinner… I went the easy route and got take-out.  And by take-out, I mean a burrito as big as my stomach:


Oh, Chipotle… why do you have to be SO close to my apartment?!


Granted, the ingredients aren’t unhealthy… the portion size is just out of control.


My burrito contained:


  • Rice
  • Black beans
  • Corn salsa
  • Pico salsa
  • Grilled veggies
  • Sour cream


It was so good.  And so big.  My tummy hurts! 


See you for the BIG REVEAL tomorrow!

    YUM to that burrito!!!

    My guess…NEW DOG?!

  • Shannon September 23, 2009, 5:53 pm

    you are moving? you got your book published? and i can't think of a third. But I am so excited for you. 🙂

  • Christy September 23, 2009, 5:57 pm

    I think you're moving, got your book published and that you're going to have a major Operation Beautiful announcement.

  • jocelynmarie September 23, 2009, 6:02 pm

    i agree with shannon

    – you are moving…
    you got your book deal!

  • Rebeca @All Vegged Out September 23, 2009, 6:03 pm

    Dude… you stink… Tomorrow's going to be one of those sneak onto google reader at work kind of days lol

    and now I think I'm going to walk to Chipotle!

  • Rebeca @All Vegged Out September 23, 2009, 6:05 pm

    oh and i think you totally got a new job, will be on Oprah AND you're moving?

  • Susan September 23, 2009, 6:05 pm

    Tease!! 😛

  • Food Makes Fun Fuel September 23, 2009, 6:05 pm

    Can't wait to hear the changes, so long as they're all good and you're happy with them

  • Beth September 23, 2009, 6:06 pm

    I would not be a good blogger. I hate making people wait for surprises!! 🙂 Can't wait to see your good news. Congrats in advance.

  • Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) September 23, 2009, 6:06 pm

    can't wait to read!

  • Kristin - September 23, 2009, 6:06 pm

    I can't wait to read all about it! Congratulations on whatever it might be!

  • Victoria September 23, 2009, 6:07 pm

    Ooo. Sounds exciting. I wait suspense! 🙂

  • Kate September 23, 2009, 6:07 pm


    Now, I don't think Oprah would be a life change- just big news, so I'm not betting on that. Therefore, my guess is:

    – moving
    – book deal
    – returning to study

  • Susan September 23, 2009, 6:08 pm

    I can't wait for tomorrow!

  • Leah L4L September 23, 2009, 6:10 pm


    Ok, my guesses are about in line with everyone else.

    – You are moving? Perhaps China?! haha.
    – You got a new job and/or are quitting your current gig.
    – You got/are getting another dog?!

  • Kelly September 23, 2009, 6:10 pm

    You really have been a tease!!!!!
    But it's okay I get more angry when bloggers say something like "some stuff is going on in my life that I can't mention…" its okay if it will later be mentioned but if I will never know, don't mention it at all haha

  • Brie (The Fit Bride) September 23, 2009, 6:13 pm

    I can't wait to hear! Also, LOVE Chipotle.

  • Kailey (SnackFace) September 23, 2009, 6:15 pm

    I am DYING right now!!! I have to know! After reading Jenna's news tonight, I can't even imagine what you're up to! CANNOT WAIT!!!

  • emily September 23, 2009, 6:15 pm

    My life is all upsidedown so I love hearing about other people's new changes! 🙂

  • k September 23, 2009, 6:16 pm

    Between the teases here and on Twitter, now I'm just plain old annoyed 🙂 Ok, not really…but I hope your announcements come tomorrow morning and not afternoon.

    I'm sure it involves some fabulous opportunities and dreams coming true- so I'll send out a preemptive congratulations!

  • MelissaNibbles September 23, 2009, 6:19 pm

    Can't wait to hear. I hope they're all good changes and you're happy.

  • Jenna September 23, 2009, 6:22 pm

    The suspense is going to kill me! If it were one announcement, I'd be fine, but THREE!?! I hope they are all amazing, you deserve it!

    Chipotle is freakin' amazing. Healthy ingredients, yes, enough to feed an army? Also yes 🙂

  • Kristin September 23, 2009, 6:22 pm

    I learned about a major life change today too!! I'm so excited!!!

    Are you… moving?
    Getting a new job??
    Getting a new animal??
    A new car?? (Ok, maybe that's not MAJOR)

    I'm curious to find out!

  • Kat (Kat's Daily Plate) September 23, 2009, 6:24 pm

    I'm curious to find out what your news is! I'm guessing a move, a change in job, and something about Operation Beautiful. Can't wait to find out!

  • Anonymous September 23, 2009, 6:25 pm

    I am in such suspense now over your "3" big announcements!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHH

    I have a Chipolte right by my house too and I love their Burrito Bowls… you can't beat 2 miles for $6+ as who can eat it all at one meal, well my husband can but hey he is a man!

    =) Laura

  • Niki September 23, 2009, 6:34 pm

    Okay, we all know one of those changes is that you are going to run away with Edward Cullen, right? Right???

  • chipped nails and all September 23, 2009, 6:42 pm

    the suspense is going to kill me tonight! I'll def. be tuning in tomorrow 🙂

    and I'm super impressed by anyone who can eat a whole burrito from Chipotle…in the battle of me vs. the burrito, the burrito always wins!

  • Kristen @ September 23, 2009, 6:46 pm

    Such a tease! 😉 Can't wait to hear the news!

  • Nicci@NiftyEats September 23, 2009, 7:36 pm

    I can't wait to see what changes are coming. So exciting when good things happen in life, especially if they benefit you for the good.

  • Joelle (The Pancake Girl) September 23, 2009, 7:48 pm

    can't wait!

  • Lizzy September 23, 2009, 8:32 pm

    tomorrow is going to be such a great day, i can't wait to hear your news.

  • littlemissminny September 23, 2009, 11:08 pm

    Wow, you're making me excited with this :))
    I must admit, it really crossed my mind that you are pregnant 😀

  • Leah @ Simply Fabulous September 23, 2009, 11:19 pm

    I think you're moving to England!

  • Whole Body Love September 24, 2009, 12:09 am

    It's funny that when a woman mentions life changes, everyone assumes pregnancy lol. I am thinking these changes have something to do with a job.

  • Thinspired September 24, 2009, 1:36 am

    Oooh, I cant' wait! I'm so happy for you Caitlin!

  • christie, honoring health September 24, 2009, 2:44 am

    Can't wait to hear the news!

    My guesses:

    Book Deal
    Moving to another city

  • Jaci September 24, 2009, 2:50 am

    I'm so excited for this news today! Early congratulations, what ever it is!

  • recipesforcreativity September 24, 2009, 4:07 am

    I can't think of any different life changes than the ones everyone else mentioned, but I can't wait to hear about them!

  • Jenni September 24, 2009, 6:15 am

    Well I just saw what you tweeted, so I think I have an idea about one of the big changes!! Can't wait to hear them!

    I went to Rebounderz in Longwood last night — holy moly. I saw Kelly write about it, I think… and maybe Meghann? Either way.. IT WAS AWESOME! We will need to schedule a time to have a big bounce-a-thon, but it was such a great, FUN! workout.

  • Steffi September 24, 2009, 11:21 am

    I have been following you and jenna, and wow, you both have some amazing changes and so exited for you both!

    As a former Bostonian, I can tell South Carlonia, and specifically Charleston is like New England with Palms trees.

    Good luck and looking forward to blogs even more. You continually motivate me in more ways then just running and healthy eating..THANK YOU!!!!

Healthy Tipping Point
