Sneaky Me

in All Posts

Sometimes… you just want pancakes for dinner.  🙂


Whole wheat pancakes were the only thing I was craving!


Not the most nutritionally sound dinner I’ve featured on the blog, but certainly not the worst!


I had an Anatomy test tonight on the vascular system (i.e. all the veins and arteries).  I think I did OK, but I won’t get the results for two weeks.  Taking night classes at community college has been a really interesting experience.  I feel like I’ve learned more since May than I did during my entire undergraduate experience. 


On my way home, I got sneaky!


I posted this Operation Beautiful note in the drugstone.  I had to be quick since I was standing in the middle of the aisle!  But the covert nature of Operation Beautiful is half the fun, isn’t it? 🙂


My dinner was probably a little light because I was SO FULL all afternoon from snacking.  I had two pieces of bread wit blueberry jam (this is my new obsession, if you haven’t noticed!):


A fruit leather:


Two plums:


A glass of OJ:


And granola and yogurt right before I left for night class:


So many grains and fruits and not enough veggies today!  :)  I discriminate, I’ll admit it.


Going to hit the sack earlier — I have a 14.0 mile (yes, 14.0!!!) run planned for tomorrow morning.  Gulp!

    Good luck for your run. And MMMM pancakes!

  • Jennifer October 1, 2009, 8:51 pm

    Science classes do that–cram every single thing possible into your head. Best thing about what YOU are learning–you will likely USE it!

    You are balancing everything so well–keep it up!

    I have been craving breakfast for dinner A LOT lately, maybe it is the weather? Your pancakes look delish!

    Good luck with your run in the morning 🙂

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is October 1, 2009, 8:54 pm

    Hahah great idea with the operation beautiful note. Those pancakes should help your run!!

  • Amanda October 1, 2009, 9:00 pm

    Good luck on your 14 miler tomorrow!! I know you’ll rock it out!

    I love breakfast for dinner!

  • Brie (The Fit Bride) October 1, 2009, 9:01 pm

    Have fun on your 14 miler!

    I wish I could have pancakes for dinner, but my fiance absolutely hates breakfast for non-breakfast meals. It’s sad.

  • Weekly Bite October 1, 2009, 9:12 pm

    Breakfast for dinner is so much fun! Good luck with your run… you’ll do great!

  • Jolene ( October 1, 2009, 9:13 pm

    Wow, you are sneaky 😉 Good one!

  • AshleyLauren October 1, 2009, 9:13 pm

    That drug store display is awful!!!!! It def deserved a note!

    I hope you did well on your test, good luck on your run tomorrow!

  • Evan Thomas October 1, 2009, 9:18 pm

    That’s a lot of fruit in every form imaginable!

  • Jenna October 1, 2009, 9:28 pm

    pancakes for dinner girl, you crack me up! yeah you did have a lot of snacks but they all look great, they are all healthy, and you NEED them since you are running 14 miles tomorrow girlfriend!

  • MelissaNibbles October 1, 2009, 9:32 pm

    I hope your note stops someone from buying that horrible weight loss corset. I can’t believe it’s on display in the middle of a store. RIDICULOUS!
    Good luck on your run!!

  • Marisa (Trim The Fat) October 1, 2009, 9:37 pm

    Love the covert operation note!

    Good luck with your 14 miles – YIKES!

  • Julie October 1, 2009, 9:40 pm

    Blueberry jam is the best! My all time fave. It tastes like blueberry pie. I am obsessed.

    Um, squeem? Is it called that because it’s so frickin’ tight it makes you squeem around all uncomfortable? Or because it makes you stomach squeemish from sqishing your insides together unnaturally? What a crock.

    • caitlin October 1, 2009, 9:42 pm

      hahah when i read “Squeem” I thought of “Scream.” As in, I want to scream this is so ridiculous.

  • Allie October 1, 2009, 9:45 pm

    I LOVE breakfast for dinner!

  • Sarah October 1, 2009, 9:49 pm

    Hi Caitlin, Im Sarah. I’ve been reading your blog for awhile now. It surely has had a positive effect on me. Even though I’m not much younger than you I definitely look up to you and the way you do things. I love operation beautiful and plan to start posting notes all over Jacksonville, Florida. Im also trying to become more organized and start up running. I just wanted to say thank you for posting everyday and giving me great ideas and a positive push in the right direction (:

    • caitlin October 1, 2009, 9:54 pm

      aww thanks sarah 🙂 send me pictures of any notes you do post — when i post notes, i end up feeling so HAPPY! 🙂 i hope they do that for you, too!

  • Joelle (The Pancake Girl) October 1, 2009, 10:13 pm

    I love that note!!!! I bet it made a lot of people’s days… and pancakes for din= heaven! My fav!

  • emily October 1, 2009, 10:22 pm

  • Annamarina (Running Tails) October 1, 2009, 10:22 pm

    Those pancakes look delicious! Good luck on your run in the morning! I’m sure it will be great!

  • Amy October 1, 2009, 10:25 pm

    Have a great run tomorrow Ms. “I’ll never run a marathon!”


  • Samantha October 1, 2009, 10:59 pm

    I love where you put your note! I need to be doing some more of those myself. Including on my OWN bathroom mirror.

    Good luck on your long run! You’re going to be so proud of your accomplishment after your marathon. It’s an amazing experience.

  • Jojo October 1, 2009, 11:04 pm

    We had pancakes for dinner also!

  • Whole Body Love October 1, 2009, 11:22 pm

    I have an Anatomy/Physiology exam coming up too! I love that class! I have to take a the labs as well. A & P is so hard but so interesting!

  • BroccoliHut October 1, 2009, 11:25 pm

    Perfect spot for a note!
    Gotta agree, blueberry jam is pretty amazing.

  • Amy October 1, 2009, 11:32 pm

    Whole wheat pancakes sound like perfect fuel for a long run. Throw in some blueberries and I’m in pancake heaven.

  • Lizzy October 1, 2009, 11:40 pm

    good luck with your 14 miler tomorrow! your going to do awesome! 🙂

  • Jac October 2, 2009, 12:07 am

  • Tay October 2, 2009, 12:40 am

    Now worries – I had pancakes tonight too 🙂

    Good luck on your run!!!

  • Tay October 2, 2009, 12:44 am

    Totally meant to say “no” worries. Eep.

  • Susan October 2, 2009, 12:54 am

    I used to love when my mom would make us pancakes for dinner. 🙂

  • Courtney October 2, 2009, 2:37 am

    Whhhoooo! Way to post that sticky girl! You’re going to make someone’s day, fosho. Made mine. 🙂

  • Diana October 2, 2009, 3:57 am

    Hmmm, pancakes! I might have to do some soon.
    Also, nice going with the operation beautiful note! I think it will definitely make many people smile. 😉
    Good luck for your run!

  • Shannon October 2, 2009, 6:04 am

    I love that Jillian Tweeted back! Very cool!

    I am taking community college classes too right now, as prerequisites for a program in dietetics. I feel the same way…I’m learning more than I did when I was in undergrad…or even grad school! I am also older, so I might appreciate it more now.

  • Pam (Pamcakes and Eggs) October 2, 2009, 7:06 am

    I’m pretty sure one of my dreams last night involved pumpkin pancakes. This weekend. That will happen!

    hahaha hilarious operation beautiful note location. Those are the best ones.

  • Kristy October 2, 2009, 7:37 am

    I love where you placed the operation beautiful note. I wonder how many people will see that and not buy that awful looking squeem. It amazes me how people will come up with these “get slim quick” products that are just ridiculous. And what is sad is the general public is so uninformed they don’t know that the only get slim trick is diet and exercise and paying attention to what you are actually putting into your body!.. not wrapping around the outside!

  • Paige October 2, 2009, 7:53 am

    Your pancakes are so pretty!

    Love the location of that OB note.

    Good luck on your run this morning:)

  • Erica October 2, 2009, 7:56 am

    hmmmmm your posts aren’t showing up in my google reader for some reason? I love pancakes for dinner. Its such a fun treat. LOVE where you stuck that Operation Beautiful note- too cute. Good luck with the run

  • Tina October 2, 2009, 8:55 am

    That is definitely the perfect place for the OB note! And I’m totally jealous of your pancakes 🙂

    Good luck on your run tomorrow!!

  • Danielle October 2, 2009, 8:57 am

    Love the sneaky note, it’s the perfect place for one.
    And Pancakes for dinner is a delicious choice!

  • Meg C. October 2, 2009, 9:31 am

    bfast for dinner rocks. you want a pancake, eat a damn pancake! haha.
    plus, good fuel for your big run this AM.

  • Anne Marie@ New Weigh of Life October 2, 2009, 9:57 am

    I love your sneakiness! If I saw something like that in a store, I know it would completely make me smile!

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Eat October 2, 2009, 3:22 pm

    Pancakes for dinner is a must every once in a while! I am so loving the Wordpress site by the way, it’s so much easier for me to leave comments now, yay 🙂

    Hope you get a great score on your exam!
