Ice It Down

in All Posts

I woke up this morning with purest of intentions to go to hot yoga, but when I sauntered outside to scrap the car, I was greeted by an icy, icy world.

Um… right.  Drive in that? No thanks.  I think this morning falls under one of those β€˜don’t leave your house unless absolutely necessary.’  Hopefully things will melt soon and I can make it to evening yoga.  πŸ™‚

 

Good choice!

A different kind of breakfast:

Instead of making regular French toast, this lovely brekkie is Peanut Butter French Toast!

IMG_8104

To make PB FT, I take a large scoop of PB (the scoop above was for two servings) and microwave it with some almond milk until it becomes runny – about thirty seconds.  Then, I mix in two eggs like I normally would and prepare as usual!

Topped with a banana and coconut.

 

Well… it’s looks like we’re still trapped at the house, but at least I can get work done!

 

Fun E-Mail of the Morning

 

Erin from Big Girl Feats wrote, β€œI loved your post about January Joiners and wanted to tell you what happened to me over the past week.  I’ve practiced yoga for the past two and a half years, and have been going to my third studio since late summer of this year. The studio offered a Groupon over the holidays, letting people buy a membership for the month for almost 60% off the price…which is awesome for bargain hunters like myself, but not awesome when people are all up in your spot before down dog! I walked in to my regular Tuesday night class and saw two 40-50 year old women in my "usual" space. I started to get mad and judge-y (even though I realized how ironic it was to judge people during a time/space where you’re supposed to practice non-judgment!) By the end of meditation, I forgot all about it and by the end of class, I was all smiles. On Saturday morning, I went to class and was putting my jacket in the coat closet when the same two women walked inside. This time there were two men with them, who I guessed were their partners. I smiled at them and was about to go put my mat down when one of the women stopped me. "Were you in class on Tuesday night?" she asked? "Yes, Tuesday, I was there." I replied (wondering if she was going to ask me why I gave her the stank eye upon her arrival that class). "Oh my gosh, you were SO helpful. I sat behind you and watched you and tried to do what you were doing. You’re so good!" I started laughing and smiled and said thank you. While we were setting up, I heard her point to me and say to her husband, "We’re going to sit behind her because she knows what she’s doing."  It reminded me that EVERYONE deserves support and a positive attitude when they start out on an exercise, wellness, fitness and health path. It reminded me that I didn’t get where I am today without showing up at a studio and starting a routine at my YMCA. Taking that first step is the hardest. Thanks for featuring people who are brave enough to admit they are starting out on that journey and are proud to do so!”

    What a cute little kitty! He looks like the type who would be offended at being called “cute”, though. Ha!

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Graduate January 11, 2011, 9:06 am

    Yikes! Ice is the worst. But on the bright side, your breakfast looks amaaaazing.

  • Ashley (The Vegetable Life) January 11, 2011, 9:08 am

    That poor kitty looks so sad and cold!!!

    Good call not driving in all of that ice…. hopefully the day will warm it up a bit so you can go to yoga later!

    I must try that PB French Toast Recipe… it looks delicious!

  • Amanda January 11, 2011, 9:10 am

    Ick, Ice is so much worse then snow!!!

  • Hope January 11, 2011, 9:13 am

    Wow! It is very icy! Poor kitty cat! I love your breakfast. It looks so yummy!

  • jen @ taste life January 11, 2011, 9:13 am

    Oh, that cold little kitty! Did he or she curl up in the blanket? I’m so happy to have my kitties safe and warm with me today. I’m in western NC, so we didn’t get ice over our snow, but the roads are still absolutely covered. Another snow day for me, too πŸ™‚

    • Caitlin January 11, 2011, 9:15 am

      He sat under it for a while πŸ™‚ Then he moved on. Tough kitty.

      • clare January 11, 2011, 1:21 pm

        If you fed that guy (who by the way, is awesome) he’s never going away!

  • Becky January 11, 2011, 9:18 am

    Thank you for feeding that kitty! He may be tough but he probably appreciated a little love!

  • Alison @ Around the VeggieTable January 11, 2011, 9:19 am

    Awwwwww a new friend! Poor guy. My youngest kitty is a snow baby…someone dumped her in a snowdrift during snowpocalypse last year. She was only a few weeks old so we rescued her πŸ™‚

  • Kristy @ KristyRuns January 11, 2011, 9:20 am

    I’m in the same boat, Caitlin. Snowed/iced in! My office is closed for the second day, and it is amazing. Contemplating going for an [icy] run but really don’t want to bust my buns…dilemmas…

  • Ann @ Day by Day January 11, 2011, 9:22 am

    Haha I love that grumpy cat face in the first picture. So cute. I wasn’t sure if you were kidding about the blanket or not. I’m sure he appreciated it! We’ve got snow too and our indoor/outdoor cat (who is about as big and furry as that one) will run outside for 5 minutes and that’s about all he can stand before he’s back scratching the door.

  • Tracy January 11, 2011, 9:24 am

    We’re still snowed in here in Atlanta too! I did yogadownload.com which fixed my exercise need though!

  • MaryBe@AccidentallyVegan January 11, 2011, 9:24 am

    That cat is huge! Better keep James and Maggie inside!

  • Samantha @ Health, Happiness & Skinny Jeans January 11, 2011, 9:28 am

    Aww, poor kitty! I hope he has a home or somewhere warm to sleep at the very least!

  • Stacy @ Every Little Thing January 11, 2011, 9:29 am

    I’m working from home too! It was very snowy this morning and a 40-minute commute means I can stay home today. Lots to do though!

    Have a good day!

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday January 11, 2011, 9:29 am

    Yikes. I hate driving in the ice or snow.

    Good thing about yoga is that you can do it anywhere, including your living room!

  • Nicole (I have trouble with forward motion) January 11, 2011, 9:32 am

    Uh oh…the kitty may return since you fed him. I have one right now that has burrowed under our cement steps. Somehow he found a space to wedge himself into, digging out a bunch of mulch in the process. I started to feed him and now can’t stop, LOL. Unfortunately he won’t come anywhere near me either. πŸ™

    • Caitlin January 11, 2011, 9:35 am

      I don’t mind feeding strays since taking them in isn’t an option (I am allergic to kitties). πŸ™‚

  • Halley (Blunder Construction) January 11, 2011, 9:32 am

    ICK! Ice is messy and dangerous. I’d rather have to trudge through a foot of snow then break up a driveway of ice. Staying indoors is indeed the right way.

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg January 11, 2011, 9:36 am

    Aww, poor kitty! I’m glad you gave him food and warm place to rest his paws!

  • Brittany (A Healthy Slice of Life) January 11, 2011, 9:37 am

    I’m so over this ice! I’ve only been outside twice… and have fallen twice, too πŸ™‚ Brr!!

  • Kelly January 11, 2011, 9:37 am

    Aww what a cute little kitty! That looks awful and messy.

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) January 11, 2011, 9:40 am

    We have only been trapped in the house for two days and cabin fever is definitely setting in and it looks like Atlanta’s temps are not going above freezing…I am starting to lose it! That kitty is just too darn cute. I hope it has a home!

  • Jennifer (Happiness Here) January 11, 2011, 9:43 am

    We’re still snowed in today, too. Going stir crazy!

  • Jenna @ Eating Green, Staying Lean January 11, 2011, 9:43 am

    Looks delicious!

    And also, that kitty is ADORABLE.

  • Lee January 11, 2011, 9:48 am

    I’m trapped at home too. What’s worse is that my husband is trapped at work!

  • foodandfarm January 11, 2011, 9:50 am

    How do you feel about workouts like jillian and tae bo videos for starting out?

  • Michele @ Healthy Cultivations January 11, 2011, 9:51 am

    Poor little guy. Glad you gave him food and a blanket.

    I’m snowed and iced in again today. No work again, but I’m contemplating an attempt to drive to the gym. We shall see what happens.

  • Michelle January 11, 2011, 9:52 am

    CUTE kitty! Looks big too. Iced in in Atlanta too! Just saw the forecast and it’s barely supposed to get above freezing the next few days. Cabin fever, baby!

  • Megan January 11, 2011, 9:54 am

    BRRRR! It looks like that outside in my corner of the world too! School districts have called a snow day.

    Since you’re going to be inside all day, if you’re feeling like a little baking, I’d suggest this:

  • Allie @ Healthy Balance, Healthy Life January 11, 2011, 9:55 am

    I actually love being snowed in. Is that weird? I feel if I have no control over staying home I might as well relax (or get work don too, I GUESS) haha

  • Val @ Balancing Val January 11, 2011, 9:57 am

    I dislike cats . . . Really

    But I think I like that one!

  • Nicole January 11, 2011, 10:02 am

    Yikes, that ice looks brutal! I do enjoy being snowed in though. Like Allie said, I feel more inclined to just relax when I’ve got no choice but to stay home. Woo!

  • Carrie S. January 11, 2011, 10:02 am

    So, so sweet of you to feed that kitty! Stray animals make me cry, especially when it so flippin’ cold outside.

  • Reenie January 11, 2011, 10:02 am

    Very cute cat. I think James and Maggie need a new lil playmate=) Bring him in…..purty please. πŸ™‚

  • bakingnbooks January 11, 2011, 10:03 am

    Who owns that cat?! Purr-fect picture! …(sorry couldn’t resist) πŸ˜‰

    That ice isn’t just terrible for driving in – it’s IMPOSSIBLE to get it scraped off your car…

  • Ashley @ Thefitacademic January 11, 2011, 10:04 am

    Good luck getting work done! Sometimes snow days can be the most productive days (and sometimes they’re just “play” days, too). Stay warm!

  • Amber K January 11, 2011, 10:12 am

    I hate being iced/snowed in. I want to be able to choose whether or not I lay around on the couch all day. lol πŸ˜‰

  • Lisa Fine - lisasfoods January 11, 2011, 10:14 am

    Sometimes getting iced in is kind of fun, as long as your heat and electricity is working. Those are good days for doing some work, reading a good book, and drinking lots of tea.

  • Rachel January 11, 2011, 10:16 am

    That is a wild/huge looking cat!

  • Carly (Swim, Run, Om) January 11, 2011, 10:18 am

    Oh wow, please be careful if you go to yoga tonight. Once the sun goes down, anything that melts today will immediately freeze back over. I know from personal experience!! πŸ™‚

    That poor kitty. I don’t understand people who don’t take care of their animals. SPAY and NEUTER, people! πŸ™

  • Cyndi @ Weightless Life January 11, 2011, 10:22 am

    Aww poor kitty. I hope he’s doing okay. Be careful in all of that ice.

  • Rachel @ No Need For Speed January 11, 2011, 10:24 am

    Those cat’s paws are HUGE!

  • Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine January 11, 2011, 10:28 am

    Awwww kitty!! He looks so tough, though- cats are self-sufficient creatures, aren’t they? I’m sure he appreciated the food and warm blanket, though πŸ™‚ Stay safe in that ice!

  • ashleigh January 11, 2011, 10:28 am

    Awww I love that cat!! Poor little guy though! I love stray cats, I want to keep them all.

  • Jamie @ Food in Real Life January 11, 2011, 10:29 am

    That kitty looks like Garfield! Cool breakfast idea, and have fun staying in! I like when I’m forced to stay in sometimes, then I don’t feel guilty about it! πŸ™‚

  • Lily @ Lily's Health Pad January 11, 2011, 10:30 am

    Oh that cat is breaking my heart! I hope he does ok in the cold. πŸ™

  • Kiran January 11, 2011, 10:30 am

    Oh! Poor kitty! Thanks to you, it’s comforted πŸ™‚
    I recently had my first icy, slippery winter road skidding experience in New Jersey. It was so dangerous and not cool. Stay in and enjoy your work or indoor trainer if you have too πŸ˜‰

  • Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman January 11, 2011, 10:36 am

    In high school, we’d go to bed praying for ice. I grew up in MA so school was very rarely canceled for snow. But if it was too icy for buses to run we were golden.

  • Beth @ Will Run for Books January 11, 2011, 10:38 am

    Awwww what a cute kitty cat! Poor baby… I’m sure he’s glad he got some food – do you think he is homeless or someones indoor/outdoor cat? Our neighbor’s indoor/outdoor cats aer always in our yard/on our stoop, etc.

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss January 11, 2011, 10:39 am

    Uhh yeah, looks like the perfect day for some house yoga!

  • Allison @ Happy Tales January 11, 2011, 10:41 am

    Wow, what a great experience for Erin! That’d totally make my day, too.

    So I’m supposed to go to work today, but I’m completely iced in! (The hill leading out of our complex is an entire ice-sheet!) Hoping that the sun starts to melt the ice so I can get out… yesterday I had an optional snowday, but today might have to be a forced one!

  • Joanna@ Drizzle of Sunshine January 11, 2011, 10:43 am

    WHOA! That’s a cat? He’s HUGE!! That’s nice of you to feed him πŸ™‚

    I don’t know how you stand the snow and ice! I’m from Cali and wouldn’t last one day! haha

  • Laura @ Starting Out Fit January 11, 2011, 10:44 am

    Good call not trying to go out in that! Ice is nasty! Every time I see ice like that, I am brought back to my grade 9 year and the famous Ontario Ice Storm of 1998 (http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=ice+storm+1998&aq=f&aqi=g9g-m1&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=). There was so much ice we actually had no power for TWO WEEKS!

    Your breakfast looks like heaven btw. πŸ˜‰

  • Liz @ Tip Top Shape January 11, 2011, 10:45 am

    Ew, I literally cringed when I saw your car all covered in ice. I usually love winter, but having to clean off my car is the one thing that I REALLY hate.

  • Krista January 11, 2011, 10:59 am

    That cat looks miserable! LOL

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat January 11, 2011, 11:01 am

    Oooh PB and banana is just what I need right now! It’s nowhere near as icy here, but it’s still flippin’ freezing… come onnnnn spring! πŸ™‚

  • Camille January 11, 2011, 11:02 am

    Yikes, it looks icy out there!
    I am definitely with you on the “not leaving the house” think today. It’s scury out there!

  • Leanne (For Health's Sake) January 11, 2011, 11:04 am

    In Edmonton, Alberta we got 30 centimeters of snow! Ridiculous! It’s so icy and residential streets have so much snow on them that my fiance’s huge truck even got stuck…

    http://forhealthssake.wordpress.com/2011/01/11/snow/

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) January 11, 2011, 11:07 am

    I definitely wouldn’t even be walking outside if I saw that ice! Yikes!

  • Kara January 11, 2011, 11:11 am

    It looks like that cat is giving you the stink eye in that picture! That’s why cats are funny, if you fed a dog and gave it a blanket, it would wag its tail and be friendly…but not cats!

    We’re supposed to get your storm here tonight, so I have no plans to go anywhere!

  • Charlie January 11, 2011, 11:12 am

    Peanut Butter French Toast sounds delicious :).

  • Me-Linh @ Sweet and Sweat January 11, 2011, 11:17 am

    Now that is one fat grumpy cat! Kinda reminds me of Garfield..

  • Erin @ Big Girl Feats January 11, 2011, 11:29 am

    Awesome! Thanks for posting my story. After that experience, it made me want to find every January Joiner and say WAY TO GO.

    We’re supposed to get up to 15 inches of snow/ice tomorrow since that storm hitting you is making it’s way up north. Going to the library now to take out some movies in hopes of a snow day!

  • Megan January 11, 2011, 11:30 am

    Hey Caitlin,
    I realize this is an incredibly odd question to be asking you on your blog, but I was wondering if you could chat with your husband and ask what he would recommend for a nursing momma to increase her milk supply? Of course, I’ve researched online, and several sites recommend various herbal supplements, but I really respect your husband’s medical views and wondered if he might have any suggestions.
    Thanks so so much!

  • Natalia - a side of simple January 11, 2011, 11:32 am

    The scoop of PB you have for two servings is probably the scoop I eat straight from the jar before adding it to whatever I’m using it for… πŸ˜‰

  • Sabine @ thefruitpursuit January 11, 2011, 11:33 am

    Awwww that is such a great story! I got a Groupun yoga deal as well haha, funny considering I live in Holland! did NOT realize that was an international thing, silly me.

    I am a cat lover but err… that cat looks kinda scary πŸ˜‰

  • Gabby (Quest for Delicious) January 11, 2011, 11:39 am

    I’m amazed at those icicles! I’ve never seen any real ones in my life.

    I want that french toast.

  • Ellen@FirednFabulous January 11, 2011, 11:45 am

    Awww poor kitty! And great email…I love love LOVE IT when people compliment me in yoga class. Which, I think has happened twice πŸ˜‰

  • Cat January 11, 2011, 11:58 am

    I really love that email! One thing that I’ve learned working in the fitness field is that fitness is an extremely vulnerable thing for most people — can bring up SO MANY different kinds of issues for people. The saying “showing up is the hardest part” is no joke, it’s quite true!

  • Whitney @ Whitinspired January 11, 2011, 12:04 pm

    Poor kitty! He looks so cold! I love that story, because that’s what I experienced. There’s no need for negativity about someone trying to improve their physical fitness!

  • Sarah (Sarah Learns) January 11, 2011, 12:25 pm

    aww, i love that email! i definitely try to find a place behind someone who looks like they know what they’re doing when i’m trying a new class!

  • Laurie January 11, 2011, 12:27 pm

    Aww, thanks for feeding the kitty! He does look cold though! I hope he’s not a stray, he looks pretty healthy!

  • Katy (The Singing Runner) January 11, 2011, 12:27 pm

    Ugh… I’m tired of this cold… we don’t have snow or ice but it’s rainy and icky here in Florida. :/

    I love that e-mail too! I have a little bit of a negative attitude about “January Joiners” but this e-mail really helped me change my outlook.

  • Amy January 11, 2011, 12:33 pm

    I want to pick up that cat and kiss his whole face. He looks grumpy and needs some lovin’!

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey January 11, 2011, 12:36 pm

    That kitty makes me SO sad!!! We have a neighborhood cat like that who stopped coming around after we got a dog. I always feel so bad for outside animals in the winter time!

  • Lisa January 11, 2011, 12:38 pm

    Oh that poor kitty looks miserable!!!

  • Jasmine @ Eat Move Write January 11, 2011, 12:46 pm

    Look at that big fluffy kitty. He looks like Garfield!

  • Morgan @ Life After Bagels January 11, 2011, 12:49 pm

    AHHHHH is that a cat stalker . . . we have a cat stalker at our house, we find him in the backyard, on the porch furniture . . . for a while he must have been tracking Brad’s schedule because he showed up every day at 4:35 pm

    Stalker or not, it’s nice that you gave him food and a blanket πŸ™‚

  • Beth @ DiningAndDishing January 11, 2011, 12:52 pm

    I’m a bit jealous of all that snow! We haven’t had much in DC this winter and I miss the coziness…

  • Kim January 11, 2011, 12:52 pm

    Um Caitlin, I know there is no fat talk here but that cat is a big one. He’s cute, for sure. But I would be scared to encounter him. Yeah, total wimp here. πŸ™‚

    • Caitlin January 11, 2011, 3:43 pm

      hehehe he is very gruff.

  • Megan (Braise The Roof) January 11, 2011, 1:06 pm

    I love that email- it’s so true. If you just put your judgment/frustration on hold for a minute it’s amazing what you might find out. That kitty sure doesn’t look like a stray- I hope he has a home to go back to!

  • Jodi January 11, 2011, 1:16 pm

    I seriously love that cat.

  • Maya January 11, 2011, 1:20 pm

    The most important thing to remember about JJ is that we ALL started off on our wellness path at some point. We aren’t born athletes, we make ourselves athletes and that has to start somewhere!

  • Nikki January 11, 2011, 1:26 pm

    Oh poor kitty cat. I want to snuggle him.

  • Jamie January 11, 2011, 1:26 pm

    aww, I hope that adorable cat has a home. Cheers to you for giving him some food.

  • Jessica @ Jessica Balances January 11, 2011, 1:29 pm

    Oh my gosh, I hope that adorable cat has a home!!! You are wonderful to give him food and warmth. Did he have claws or a collar? He looks well-fed, so hopefully that means he has owners… I am obviously overly concerned about the cat. LOL.

    • Caitlin January 11, 2011, 3:43 pm

      I think he’s a stray. πŸ™

  • Erin January 11, 2011, 1:31 pm

  • Anne @ butter and bear January 11, 2011, 1:33 pm

    I have read your blog for a couple years, but this is my first time commenting. I really like the e-mail you featured today. As someone who has recently started Yoga, I know how those two ladies felt. Such a positive message, thanks for sharing!

    Love that story from that gal who emailed you!

  • Carla @ Will Run for Health January 11, 2011, 1:54 pm

    I love that the kitty is totally giving you the stink eye Bahahaha! I love that you use shreaded coconut on your breakfast! I also add a little bit to certain foods to give it a little impact. I really like adding a tablespoon of white chocolate chips and 2 tbsp of coconut to Greek yogurt. I used to make that for the kids I babysat for and they called it snowman poop. Gross, but funny.

  • sarah k. @ the pajama chef January 11, 2011, 2:06 pm

    poor kitty πŸ™ so cute though!

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) January 11, 2011, 2:15 pm

    Aww poor kitty!
    I am delighted to see the influx of bodies in gyms in January, but I’m also a personal trainer – and seeing people make the decision to start exercising makes me giddy πŸ™‚

  • Sarah January 11, 2011, 2:38 pm

    That kitty is a Garfield lookalike!

  • Josephine @ Creating a Positive Life January 11, 2011, 3:03 pm

    This totally changes my perspective when I go to a busy gym or group fitness class that is busting at the seams. Thanks for the positive/helpful outlook πŸ™‚

  • Shanna, like Banana January 11, 2011, 3:37 pm

    I’m so glad you fed the kitty. I hope he’s okay and has since found shelter. Shame on whoever let him out of the house!

    I hope the kitty is ok! I get so worried about animals that dont have shelter in bad weather.

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin January 11, 2011, 6:03 pm

    I love that reader’s email! And hearing about how friendly she was to those two women makes me want to give some group fitness classes a try. I’ve always been too embarrassed to go to one, but if people are as friendly as her, I think I may give them a try! πŸ™‚

    It’s funny to read that it’s your second snow day. The only snow days I got was when I was in school. I live in Quebec, Canada and even if there’s a big snowstorm we still have to go to work. The other day we had an Icestorm, that one is more tricky.

    Oh gosh…I hate cats but that bubba is precious, and probably freezing! Awww :/

    We had plenty of ice here in Raleigh today too–I almost biffed on the sidewalk when I walked to Target!

    I wonder if you could make the toast without the egg… I’m iced in and out of eggs! πŸ™‚

    Thanks for posting Erin’s note and your original post re: Jan Joiners. I am really bad about getting annoyed at a crowded gym – it is a great reminder not to be a stumbling block for others(even if it is only in the form of a disgruntled expression).

    Oh my. I want that kitty. I’d name him Boris and sneak him in to the house before Hubs knew what happened. I’d get ignored by the other kitties though.

    Oh well, back to reality. πŸ™‚

    That cat is scarier than the ice…cats have sharp parts you know? Lol.

    Every year I wait to hear the guy on the radio say “No unnecessary travel” but the last time I heard that was in 1994 πŸ™

    You make Mom so proud in many ways – like how your acts of kindness extend beyond humans to the other animals in our world. You have always cared about animals living a hard life and the strays. i.e. The cat who couldn’t get out of a tree, Fred, the cat heard crying from behind a dorm washer who became “your’s” until you found him a home by using an online service, the little guy at the apt complex that you interviewed interested people to ensure him a safe and caring home, and many more.
