My heart is pounding!  I spoke twittered with Jillian Michaels.  Swoon! I have a major girl crush on her.


Caitlin CaitlinHTP: @jillianmichaels my husband and i are going to be bob and you for halloween. what do you think — we could pass!


AND THEN SHE TWEETED ME BACK, confirming that she is awesome.


Jillian MichaelsJillianMichaels: @CaitlinHTP you guys are way better looking 🙂


AHHHH!  Obviously, she’s a dirty liar 🙂 but it’s pretty cool that she reads the tweets people send her!


What are you going to be for Halloween?  Only 30 days to decide!

    My boyfriend and I are spending the weekend in our favorite town in AZ, Jerome. It is the best, an old and small mining town built into a mountain. We are having dinner in the haunted hotel’s restaurant (it used to be a hospital in the early 1900s) so we are going to dress nice and sophisticated and wear fancy yet super cool masks we bought in the town. I cannot wait, Halloween is my favorite!

  • Megan @ Megzz Wins At Life October 1, 2009, 2:31 pm

    hahahahahahahahaha This is soo funny Caitlin.. When I saw she tweeted you I knew you would freak!! You are going to be famous after your book is published and you will be hanging out with celebs all the time.. hehe..

    No Halloween Outfit picked out yet!!!

  • Weekly Bite October 1, 2009, 2:31 pm

    I LOVE it when celebrities “tweet” us back! It’s so much fun!!

  • Marisa (Trim The Fat) October 1, 2009, 2:33 pm

    That is cool!

    I’ll be myself for Halloween. Scary enough ;P

  • Ryane October 1, 2009, 2:33 pm

    Ahhh! That’s hilarious. I would be equally jazzed!

    STILL no clue about my costume… my bf likes to go the “controversial” route while I prefer not to dress up as recently-dead celebrities… so we’ll see!!

  • Gina October 1, 2009, 2:33 pm

    Hahaha, I couldn’t believe she tweeted back, that’s awesome! Not sure about costumes yet. Still a few weeks to decide. 🙂

  • Mandy A October 1, 2009, 2:34 pm

    I saw that pop up on twitter!!!!!!!!!!!!! Too awesome!! haha!!!

    I love it! 🙂

    We are possibly doing a super hero theme here at work… I found a costume I really like… I don’t normally care for superhero type movies… but I so have a “thing” for the spider man movies! haha!

    I found this… and it’s perfect! It’s a classic spider girl costume. Cute without being too revealing! I’m hoping I can pull it off!

  • Annamarina (Running Tails) October 1, 2009, 2:34 pm

    HAHA!!!! I love it! That is great! Impressive too, that she wrote back! I can’t wait to see the pictures of you all dressed up. You definitely look like the two of them. It will be a great costume!

    I’m going to be in bed early on Halloween because I will be running the NYC marathon the very next morning!!!

  • Whit October 1, 2009, 2:35 pm

    AHHHHH I almost had a heart attack when I saw that on tweetdeck! Catch your breath, maybe breathe in a paper bag or something. I would be hyperventilating.

  • kirsten October 1, 2009, 2:36 pm

    I got SO excited when I saw she tweeted you!!! She is so awesome!!

  • Adriana October 1, 2009, 2:38 pm

    OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG! I love her. I would freak the F out if she tweeted me!

    • Caitlin October 1, 2009, 2:40 pm

  • Holly October 1, 2009, 2:40 pm

    omg omg omg!!! That is HUGE!!!! I have a girl crush, too. I mean…who doesn’t??! Not only did she tweet you, but she gave you a HUGE compliment, too. 🙂

  • Brooke October 1, 2009, 2:41 pm

    Oh man, that is really cool!! Maybe you two will become fast friends :O)

  • Leah @ L4L October 1, 2009, 2:52 pm

  • Courtney October 1, 2009, 2:53 pm

    Seriously so freakin cool!! Better start pumping up the arms so you don’t even need a costume!! :> Your hubby will have to get some fake tats for his arms!!

  • Diana October 1, 2009, 2:55 pm

    We don’t really celebrate Halloween here, but every year a friend of mine throws a huge party because he loves Halloween, and any excuse to party is good, let’s admit it ahah

  • Tasha - The Clean Eating Mama October 1, 2009, 3:02 pm

    AWESOME!!! That would totally make my week, too!

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is October 1, 2009, 3:04 pm

    OMG I WOULD BE FREAKING OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Runeatrepeat October 1, 2009, 3:06 pm

  • Kevin Blanchard October 1, 2009, 3:07 pm

  • Tracey@tropicalhappiness October 1, 2009, 3:13 pm

    Soooooo exciting!!!!!!! And I definitely need to figure out my Halloween costume! Soon!

  • lauren October 1, 2009, 3:15 pm

    I’ve never even thought about tweeting a celeb, so that’s awesome she responded back.
    My boyfriend and I are going as a Double Dare team. We are ordering shirts and wearing helmets with cups on our heads.

  • Evan Thomas October 1, 2009, 3:18 pm

    Lol that’s too funny. I need to get thinking!

  • Tay October 1, 2009, 3:22 pm

    Ahhhhh!!!!! I’m being a mafia/mobster type of person. I’ve had the hat all year!

  • Sarah (LovIN My Tummy) October 1, 2009, 3:23 pm

    I LOVE this! I just forwarded this to my husband. Now I fear he’ll be tweeting every professional athlete he can find on Twitter 😉

  • jen trinque October 1, 2009, 3:23 pm

    That is so cool!!! I bet she’d totally dig your operation beautiful project, maybe someday you’ll get to meet her 🙂

    I doubt I’ll dress up as anything this year…we’re invited to a party, as usual, so I guess I’ll have to come up with something.

  • Julie October 1, 2009, 3:24 pm

    How cool!
    I was thinking about being “Blossom”. No idea where it came from, but I think it’s be funny!

    • Caitlin October 1, 2009, 3:25 pm

      you need a sunflower hat!

  • Kristin @ Iowa Girl Eats October 1, 2009, 3:33 pm

    I tweeted with her last week too!!! Not lying when I say it was seriously one of the biggest highlights of my life…my heart is pounding right now just thinking about it. 🙂 I sound like a super stalker, eeeeeeek

  • Jenna October 1, 2009, 3:34 pm

    omg that is soo cool you twittered with jillian 🙂 that must have made your day!

  • Sarah October 1, 2009, 3:42 pm

    Spencer wants to be Kermit and Ms. Piggy…I wanna be Juno and Bleaker…

    We’ll see who wins 😉

  • Marina October 1, 2009, 4:18 pm

    I would love to be cat woman. Or Arwen. I just want to be pretty and sexy for halloween 😀

  • alli October 1, 2009, 4:28 pm

    AWESOME that you tweeted with her! A few months ago when I was doing the 30 Day Shred and Making the Cut, I had a dream that I met her at the gym and showed her my guns! hahah!
    I love your costume idea!
    My husband has this thing where he thinks it’s funny to grow a mustache (not funny. gross.)
    so we are going to use that stache and be mario and peach! 🙂

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Eat October 1, 2009, 4:29 pm

    I saw your “tweet” to her earlier and I was wondering if she would respond back. SO COOL! Haha.

  • Allison October 1, 2009, 4:33 pm

    That is so cool! I was thinking about being a panda bear; one of my friends got me a panda hat when he went to China over the summer and I have a panda t shirt!

  • Kate October 1, 2009, 4:51 pm

    OMG that is so awesome of her to tweet you back! (or is it tweet back atcha?)

    Actually, how appropriate… my husband and I are dressing up as tweets this Halloween! We’re going to dress like the little twitter bird, and make t-shirts that say “What are you doing?” in the font that Twitter uses. Then we’ll have some velcro phrases like “at a crazy Halloween party” or whatever, so people can pick different 140 character sentences to complete the sentence. Hard to describe… totally dorky… but yet funny. Right? Right.

    • Caitlin October 1, 2009, 4:56 pm

      that is an awesome idea!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Danielle October 1, 2009, 4:51 pm

    That is so cool!

  • brittany October 1, 2009, 5:24 pm

    I always thought your husband looked like bob ever since you said you had a crush on bob. You guys can totally pass!

  • Deb (Smoothie Girl Eats Too) October 1, 2009, 5:40 pm

    That is rad. Does she know you are a world-famous blogger?!?!?!

    • Caitlin October 1, 2009, 5:41 pm

      hahah first of all… not world famous. secondly, i dont think she knows about the blog! she just actually responds to fan tweets – how cool is that??? i looked at her responses and she responses to lots of people!!!

  • Jocelyn October 1, 2009, 5:45 pm

    yep she is pretty cool! I tweeted her the other day saying i was terrified of my next circuit ( from her online program) and she tweeted me back saying that I should be scared cuz shes scary! muhahahaha love her!

  • Allie October 1, 2009, 5:46 pm

    That’s awesome! This may be overdone this year, but I was thinking about Bella and Edward for the Hubby and I 🙂

  • Nicole October 1, 2009, 6:06 pm

    That is so awesome!!! Great idea for Halloween.

    Last year, my friend and I were Olympic gymnasts and it was awesome. There was a guy dressed like Michael Phelps at the party we went to so we got lots of good pics. Not sure about this year though, I want to be creative!

  • Christina October 1, 2009, 6:31 pm

    That is awesome!! I’m not sure what I’m going to be for halloween… we’re trying to come up with a group idea but my fallback is to be an olympian.

  • Nikka October 1, 2009, 6:41 pm

    How exciting! That would make my day, how awesome. Not only did Jillian tweet you, she tweeted you a great compliment. You’ll definitely need to tweet her a picture of you guys from Halloween.

  • ash @ on the rocks October 1, 2009, 7:09 pm

    oh goodness i am jealous. love jillian. you two kinda do resemble bob and jillian!

  • Rachel October 1, 2009, 7:29 pm

    I’ve never commented, but I think it’s ironic that you had a “celebrity encounter”, and I feel like your reply to mine on Oh She Glows was a celebrity encounter…. hahaha, I’m such a nerd!

  • Allison (Balance in Bites) October 1, 2009, 7:48 pm

    Ok, that’s freaking awesome. You must feel AMAZING right now! Lol!

  • Amanda October 1, 2009, 9:00 pm

    OMGGGGGGGGG Jillian has a girl crush on YOU 🙂 🙂 🙂

  • Jolene ( October 1, 2009, 9:02 pm

    That is so awesome!!! I am going to add her to twitter! I am going to be a lion for Halloween I think!

  • Gloria October 1, 2009, 9:06 pm

    That’s awesome! I can’t wait to see your costumes. 4 of my guy friends and I are going as the cast of Anchorman! I’m so excited.

  • Angie All The Way October 1, 2009, 9:09 pm

    Okay I’m totally spooked right now because I didn’t check your blog until now and my post from this evening is similar involving YOU on twitter! lol


  • ava October 1, 2009, 9:53 pm

    I’m dressing up as swine flu! Pink dress, surgical mask, thermometer, pig ears & tail… haha it’ll be something… thats for sure

  • Susan October 1, 2009, 10:03 pm

    Ohmygosh, I totally saw that today and flipped out for you! Both you ladies are on my twitter 🙂 Jillian’s right about the costumes too 😉

  • MB October 1, 2009, 10:03 pm

    Cool. I love Jillian but would be scared to have her as my trainer.

    If you’re going to be Jillian for Halloween you’ll have to get the slouch right with one shoulder down, upper body twisted and hip cocked.

    You guys look adorable. 😉

  • Madeline @ GreensAndJeans October 1, 2009, 10:03 pm

    1. What a great costume idea! And 2. Jillian is amazing and this just helped seal the deal on the huge girl crush I have on her… I’m running a half on Nov 1st with my mom so I don’t think I’ll be dressing up!

  • Lara (Thinspired) October 1, 2009, 10:10 pm

    OMG!! That is so awesome. I have tweeted JM before and had no response. That is so cool.

  • Lara (Thinspired) October 1, 2009, 10:11 pm

    P.S. Love the pic–you two are so cute together!

  • Tammy (Defining Wellness) October 1, 2009, 10:29 pm

    That is SO neat!!

  • postcollegecook October 1, 2009, 11:42 pm

    You guys seriously could pass as Jillian and Bob!

  • jenna October 2, 2009, 8:59 am

    LOL that is so cool she tweeted you!! 🙂

  • Stephanie October 2, 2009, 12:45 pm

    That’s a great Halloween idea and how awesome that she tweeted you back! However I’m guessing she didn’t read your negative post on her promoting of supplements. I’m just confused why you were so negative towards her, and now your her biggest fan. I think she’s done a fabulous job defending her stance on health supplements. Let’s all support eachother and agree to disagree!

    • caitlin October 2, 2009, 12:48 pm

      i can like someone and not support everything they do. this happens all the time with friends — you know what i mean? i really love jillian’s style, workout videos, and attitude, i just don’t like her diet pills. if she asked my opinion, i’d tell her they suck. 🙂 but i still like her. i think she did a good job of defending her supplements, too. i still don’t agree with her rationale, but at least she has one.
