Wish I May…

Wish I might…


The long weekend is officially over.  Regular work shall now resume.  🙁


On a happier note, I bet a lot of you have four-day work weeks now! Wahoo!  That’s almost better than a three-day weekend, in my opinion.




I haven’t made French toast in so long – I was craving it today!  I actually woke up starving, which rarely happens to me after a moderate workout day.  I guess I’ve reached the tipping point in marathon training where my metabolism is constantly jacked up. 


Added chia seeds to one side of the French toast while it cooked:


And topped it with Greek yogurt + raspberries. 



Speaking of work… I better get to it.


Catching up after the holiday weekend?

    same here, back to the books!

  • Freya (Brit Chick Runs) September 7, 2010, 9:15 am

    Bah, there was no Memorial Day weekend here 🙁 but I still have a 4day week ahead of me cos Monday’s gone, and that’s always the worst one 😀

  • Holly @ couchpotatoathlete September 7, 2010, 9:18 am

    I totally agree with you that 4 day work weeks are the best! Before I know it, the week is over!!! 🙂

    French toast is such a delicious breakfast — I wish I had had that this morning!

  • Kaitlyn (College Girl Runs) September 7, 2010, 9:20 am

    Those raspberries look great! I have woken up every morning really hungry because of marathon training! I kind of like it because I feel like it makes the food taste better 🙂 lol

  • Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin September 7, 2010, 9:21 am

    That breakfast looks good enough to take away a small amount of the pain of going back to work. But 4 day work week is exciting!

  • Marina September 7, 2010, 9:28 am

    What a beautiful breakfast!
    I wish I had those raspberries :))

  • Estela @ Weekly Bite September 7, 2010, 9:30 am

    I remember making those wishes when I was little! I loved those flowers/plants?? Don’t know what they’re called 🙂

  • Lindsey @ Gingerbread Bagels September 7, 2010, 9:36 am

    That breakfast looks delicious, now I’m craving french toast. I love the first picture! 🙂 It reminds me of when I was little and how I would make wishes with them.

  • Rachel (Two Healthy Plates) September 7, 2010, 9:37 am

    Knowing I only have a four day work week ahead is the only thing that makes the end of the weekend less painful! haha =)

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg September 7, 2010, 9:39 am

    Beautiful photograph!!

    Why is it that holidays make the short work week seem even LONGER sometimes?!? 🙂

  • Tina September 7, 2010, 9:47 am

    I’m so drained after the weekend I’m already looking forward to this next one. Especially since a prenatal massage is included. I NEED ONE!

  • Annie@stronghealthyfit September 7, 2010, 9:49 am

    The chia seeds made your french toast so cute!

  • Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman September 7, 2010, 9:52 am

    The only thing that makes today less painful than Monday is knowing it’s a four-day week.

  • Jasmine @ Eat Move Write September 7, 2010, 9:57 am

    French toast sounds really good. I haven’t eaten breakfast yet. I loved the 3-day weekend. I’m not ready to get back into the swing of things yet.

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) September 7, 2010, 10:07 am

    Nice job on the French toast! Those hungrier days are crazy! I feel like I am always hungry right now! Have a great one Caitlin!

  • Bee Goes Bananas September 7, 2010, 10:10 am

    Some mornings I wake up super hungry even though I didn’t workout extremely hard the previous day. Most of the time I listen to my body and eat a big breakfast and a smaller lunch and dinner. But sometimes it’s difficult for me to tell the difference between true hunger and mental cravings.

  • Chelsea @ Strawberry Sweat September 7, 2010, 10:12 am

    Unfortunately, the end of summer means the beginning of class for me. I was hitting the books last night (yup, we always have work to do for the first day of class), so this week really feels like a normal work/school week for me!

  • Camille September 7, 2010, 10:22 am

    Mmm, French Toast is the best!
    I am still out of school, so everyday has been the weekend. Honestly? I am bored and I want to go back. Crazy, I know!

  • Sara September 7, 2010, 10:29 am

    I couldn’t sleep because I dreaded going back to work. 🙁 But it’s a 3-day week for me! I have Friday off, woo hoo! I’ll need it after traveling for work!

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat September 7, 2010, 10:31 am

    Fortunately, I don’t have to start my new job until next week, so there’s another week of holidays ahead for me! 😀 I did however, wake up several times last night thinking that maybe I’d read the email wrong and my first day was actually supposed to be today. (That wasn’t the case, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it!!)

    • Caitlin September 7, 2010, 1:16 pm

      congrats on your new job 🙂

  • Neen@ Broad bean to Runner Bean September 7, 2010, 10:31 am

    ahh long wknds are fab!

  • Lana September 7, 2010, 10:33 am

    Those Chia seeds look like a great addition. I don’t have any, but i’m definitely going to try this with ground flax seed.

  • Heather (Heather's Dish) September 7, 2010, 10:35 am

    i adore long weekends! if only it was the norm, right?! 🙂

  • Kristen@makingourway.tumblr.com September 7, 2010, 10:38 am

    That french toast looks like a perfect way to start the short work week! My hubby made me an omelet this morning, not too shabby 🙂

  • Whitney September 7, 2010, 10:45 am

    ugh. I have to go back tomorrow and I’m so dreading it. That french toast looks pretty good too 🙂

  • Jillian @ Reshape Your Life September 7, 2010, 10:49 am

    I need to keep eggs in the house, I so want some french toast!

  • Angela September 7, 2010, 11:01 am

    I love homemade french toast. I’ve never thought to add chia seeds to it but that’s definitely a good healthy spin! I should be doing work but instead I’m catching up on some blogs. 😉

  • Mary September 7, 2010, 11:01 am

    your french toast looks great!

  • Sarah for Real September 7, 2010, 11:03 am

    Oh I thought you made poppy seed french toast! Surprise!

  • Kacy September 7, 2010, 11:05 am

    That french toast looks spectacular. Great way to get back into the work groove 🙂

  • Alexa @ The Girl In Chucks September 7, 2010, 11:10 am

    You think having your holiday weekend end is a bummer, try working in the tourism industry. You end up working all of the holidays.

    Sure, I’m salaried and I get comp days, so I can take my 8 hours for Labor Day off later, but it isn’t the same. Oh well. I’ll try to get over it while I start MY three day weekend today! 😉

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing September 7, 2010, 11:11 am

    Yum… I haven’t had French Toast in FOREVER!

  • Katherine @ Left Coast Contessa September 7, 2010, 11:20 am

    Yay four day week! Especially great because Monday I have 9 am class so I only have to wake up early twice this week.

  • Nikki @ Balance and Moderation September 7, 2010, 11:38 am

    Chia seeds on French Toast – good idea. I guess you can pretty much spinkle those bad boys on everything.

  • Lauren September 7, 2010, 12:02 pm

    That’s a bummer about the 5k. I’m sure it ruined quite a few entrants’ times. I had a problem once with a half-marathon; ended-up I had a dud chip. I was NOT a happy camper. Now at that race, they make you check your chip before you leave the expo!

  • Laura@FindingAHealthyBalance....after a 100+ Pound weight loss!!! September 7, 2010, 12:03 pm

    Love the new “HTP Additions & Swaps”!

    Question – – – What knee brace do you recommend for your Runner’s Knee??? I think have might have it, started to hurt after a 11 mile run (my first) this weekend. Will see doctor if gets worse but thinking of getting a brace in the mean time. =)

    • Caitlin September 7, 2010, 1:17 pm

      if you go to rei.com and search knee sleeve, mine is the shorter one.

  • Ellen@FirednFabulous September 7, 2010, 12:12 pm

    Long weekends don’t really pertain to me because I’m a freelancer AND I work PT in a boutique that never closes on the holidays, but I do still feel like I had a little bit of a “holiday.” I guess because NYC was quite for once…people get the hell outta dodge over long weekends! It’s kinda spooky, but nice 🙂 And yeah, somehow, I do have a lot of catching up to do…gotta get on it!

  • Tay September 7, 2010, 12:12 pm

    Last time I started training, I realized my hunger surged when I hit about 25-30 mpw. That’s when I was constantly hungry and constantly tired!!

  • MoniMeals September 7, 2010, 12:16 pm

    Just AMAZING French Toast! Yum.:)

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin September 7, 2010, 12:18 pm

    I find that I always wake up hungry, even when I have a snack before bed! My metabolism has been through the roof lately!

  • Amber K September 7, 2010, 12:22 pm

    I work Sun/Tues/Thurs, so I don’t ever have weekends off. But I only work mornings and I really enjoy it!

  • Stacey @ The Habit of Healthy September 7, 2010, 12:23 pm

    No long weekend for us here in the UK, but I hope you folks enjoyed it. And a shorter work week is never a bad thing!

  • Paige @Running Around Normal September 7, 2010, 12:34 pm

    That’s a beautiful dandelion picture:)
    I have a weird work schedule. I have two part time jobs, haha

  • eatmovelove September 7, 2010, 12:45 pm

    The bread for your French Toast looks delish.

  • Scargosun September 7, 2010, 1:15 pm

    Yummy french toast! I had toast with PB and Beach Plum jelly so it was kinda close. 😉 Just read your race recap. Can’t believe there was no sign or volunteer at the fork. That is crazy.

  • Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter September 7, 2010, 1:19 pm

    I’ve got a whollle lotta packing to do! I move back to college very soon.

  • Sana September 7, 2010, 4:36 pm

    I always make French Toast!!!! I don’t make it often enough. This needs to change ASAP!

  • Mandy September 7, 2010, 7:23 pm

    Your food looks amazing! Haha you know what’s better than a four-day week? Having university shut down for an entire week due to the earthquake. Huzzah!

  • Faith @ lovelyascharged September 7, 2010, 8:19 pm

    A 4 day work week is so exciting to me…I heard that’s the way it works in Sweden and I have half a mind to move over there myself!

  • Fallon September 7, 2010, 11:06 pm

    Looks yummy!

  • Cassie September 20, 2010, 3:42 pm

    That looks so good!
