Almost There

in All Posts

Today, I anticipate I’ll finish up the first draft of my second book.  Yaaaaay! 

Untitled (source)

I feel quite accomplished, and truthfully – it’s a huge load off my shoulders (until I start Book #3 in a few weeks – more deets are forthcoming).  The second book is a re-vamped version of Operation Beautiful: Changing the Way You See Yourself One Post-It Note at a Time but is geared towards younger readers.  I feel really, really good about the second book.  Plus, I’m 5 days ahead of deadline! 


The book is untitled so far – authors don’t get the final say in the title or the cover but my publisher likes to hear ideas.  If anyone wants to send me suggestions, I welcome them!  :)  So far, we’re thinking about Operation Beautiful:  Beauty BeTWEEN the Lines and Operation Beautiful:  Be YOU(tiful)!  I prefer the second title more than the first. 


I also liked Operation Beautiful: Girl Power! but some feedback indicated this is too 1990s.  ;)  Whatever – girl power never goes out of style.





I made regular banana oatmeal on the stovetop, but added 1/2 cup mashed sweet potato.  So delicious!


In the mix:


  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup mashed sweet potato
  • Chia seeds
  • Cinnamon


And, in other news, I got cupping last night and now my back looks like this:


Octopus hugs are the best.  It released a trigger point in my shoulder, and I slept so soundly last night!


PS – An update on the Selling the Girl Next Door post – Maria emailed me to say, “What an amazing day for Living Water and this issue! I spoke to the owner of Living Water, and she said the donations BLEW UP yesterday.  She had never experienced anything like it. She said they were coming from all over the U.S. and Canada. I cannot thank you and you readers enough!! What an amazing community of people.”

    looks like a bunch of hickeys, celebrating V-day early?! haha jk

  • Fit Chick Britt February 10, 2011, 9:24 am

    So happy to hear you’re almost done with the book! I actually like the first title the best 🙂

  • Kristina February 10, 2011, 9:26 am

    Congrats on almost being done-what a huge relief! I’ve always wanted to try cupping:) and sweet potatoes in your bfast is pretty genius!

  • Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete February 10, 2011, 9:28 am

    I like the Tween title better, only because that is who it is geared for. But either of those suggestions are good!

    The cupping freaks me out to be honest — but I can somewhat imagine how it would release tension in your back.

  • Lizzy @ runbakerace February 10, 2011, 9:33 am

    I also agree that Girl Power never goes out of style 🙂

  • Ali February 10, 2011, 9:37 am

    Who did you get feedback from saying that Girl Power was too 1990s? Because I’m sure that tweens don’t remember the 90s so they won’t think it’s outdated! Did you get feedback from tweens? I know there are Spice Girl connotations, but again, I’m not sure tweens are aware of all of that.
    My daughter(age 9) loves any and all phrases having to do with ‘girl power’ (girls rule, girls are the best, etc).
    I’d go with a title indicating that it’s for girls, but don’t limit it to tweens – otherwise you might get some older girls not wanting to read it because they see the word tween.
    Just a thought.

    • Caitlin February 11, 2011, 10:21 am

      Thanks for this feedback! I’m going to push for Girl Power consideration!

  • Kristy @ February 10, 2011, 9:39 am

    Congratulations on being ahead of schedule! That always feels good. 🙂 Cupping freaks me out!!! Looks painful.

  • April @ Crazy Fabulous Life February 10, 2011, 9:43 am

    Personally I dig the “girl power” title. The tweens won’t know how big it was in the 90s, but the parents will and it will be a good talking point when they’re buying the book. 🙂

    That whole cupping thing seems like it would hurt! When I first heard about it years ago I thought they said that liquid (toxins or whatever) come out of your skin into the little cups. Is that true?

    • Caitlin February 11, 2011, 10:22 am

      I think that’s condensation, not toxins. Although I’m sure it’s possible!

  • Nikki T February 10, 2011, 9:47 am

    I love Operation Beautiful: Be YOU(tiful)!
    It’s fun!
    Can’t wait to hear about book #3 and congrats on being ahead of schedule!

  • DadHTP February 10, 2011, 9:47 am

    book title #2 works for me.

  • Jackie @ Baking Charms February 10, 2011, 9:52 am

    LOVE LOVE LOVE ‘beTWEEN’ very clever 🙂

  • Charlie February 10, 2011, 9:52 am

    That oatmeal looks delicious! Love the second title :).

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat February 10, 2011, 9:55 am

    Woohoo! I’m sure it will be huge relief when the book is finally finished. I like the 2nd title better as well. Lovely octopus kisses! 🙂

  • Jennifer (keepitsimplefoods) February 10, 2011, 9:55 am

    Wonderful news for Living Water and girls all over the world! Congratulations!

    I canNOT believe you did cupping! I’ve never known anyone to do it, but have been curious to know what it’s like. Tell us more! How do you feel? Did it hurt? I’ve been sleeping terribly lately-maybe it could help me.

    I like the second title best.

    • Caitlin February 11, 2011, 10:23 am

      Nope, it doesn’t really hurt – it feels like a deep tissue massage kind of in that it ‘hurts so good’.

  • Parita@myinnershakti February 10, 2011, 9:57 am

    Great news about Living Water! That made my day!

    And I like the second title too. 🙂

    Happy Thursday!

  • Megan February 10, 2011, 9:57 am

    Question – what do you mean that it “released a trigger point in my shoulder”? I am fascinated by this process and what it can do!

    For what it’s worth, I like all three titles you mentioned.

    • Caitlin February 11, 2011, 10:24 am

      The cups pull your skin and muscle out, thereby releasing any knots in your back – aka… awesomeness.

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) February 10, 2011, 9:58 am

    I am so excited for you with the book almost being done! That is great. I like the first title! Your oats look delicious! I did sweet potato the other day with left orange ginger roasted sweet potatoes. Sweet potato oats are such a great combination! Have a great day Caitlin!

  • Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table February 10, 2011, 9:58 am

    I vote for title #2!

    Brilliant idea mixing sweet potatoes in your oatmeal. They’re good in anything – love them in smoothies!

    So. Cool. about the Living Water donations! Kudos to you and your readers. 🙂

  • Eliz@The Sweet Life February 10, 2011, 10:05 am

    Congratulations!!!! You’ll feel so good tonight.

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday February 10, 2011, 10:05 am

    I like “Beauty Between the Lines” without the caps on TWEEN. Do tweens even call themselves tweens? I find that word a bit patronizing.

  • sarah k. @ the pajama chef February 10, 2011, 10:05 am

    i like the 2nd title best too. i think the “tweens” in the first might be off-putting to some of your targeted audience and could limit some younger teens from reading it because they think it’s for younger girls….just a thought!

  • Katy (The Singing Runner) February 10, 2011, 10:10 am

    That is amazing to hear about the Living Water donations! 🙂 It’s amazing how one post can really raise awareness! 🙂

    I prefer the second title better. 😉 While the book is geared towards teens and tweens, it doesn’t gear it too much to them and put off older people from picking up the book too! 😀

  • Johanna B February 10, 2011, 10:10 am

    Congrats on having the second book almost under your belt. Can’t wait to hear about #3. I eat pumpkin with cottage cheese so why not sweet potato with oatmeal. I need to try it.

  • Kelly February 10, 2011, 10:11 am

    Is Operation Beautiful only for girls? I understand that the majority of these issues are related to women/girls, but I think “OB: Girl Power” may leave out a huge group of young adults who are boys and may benefit from the book as well.

    • Kelly February 10, 2011, 10:11 am

      I didn’t mean young adults…I meant youth. 🙂

    • Caitlin February 10, 2011, 10:29 am

      Yeah, it’s for girls only.

      • kelli February 10, 2011, 6:01 pm

        I agree too bad it is not for males to, because males feel the same way as women sometimes, well now you have ideas for future!!

        • Marie-JourneytoBodyZen February 10, 2011, 10:03 pm

          Very interesting point that I had never really thought about! I’m sure there are guys out there who feel the same pressure as us girls! thanks for sharing 🙂

        • Caitlin February 11, 2011, 10:32 am

          I address the fact that boys feel pressure and talk about the Muscular Ideal, but Operation Beautiful at it’s core is for girls and women. I certainly don’t exclude boys or men but it’s hard to talk about body image and self-esteem issues in a way that addresses boys and girls, especially when all the notes says You Are Beautiful.

  • Sarah February 10, 2011, 10:21 am

    CONGRATS on almost being done! That’s a great accomplishment 🙂 I can’t wait to hear what the next book is going to be.

    I have a question for you….I see you use chia seeds in a lot of things…where do you find them? I searched all over our grocery store and they were no where to be found?
    I am so inspired by your healthy eating and am trying a few of your recipes and loving them!

    • Caitlin February 11, 2011, 10:32 am

      Check out!

  • Jasmine @ Eat Move Write February 10, 2011, 10:21 am

    That almost brought tears to my eyes that your readership blew up the website with donations. That is friggin amazing. You should be so proud.

    I can’t believe “Girl Power” is 90s. Pshhhha.

  • Ashley February 10, 2011, 10:24 am

    whatever – i think “Girl Power” is the best! boo! ; )

  • Gill (snaxandthecity) February 10, 2011, 10:26 am

    congrats on nearly finishing the book!

    i like the second title as well – it’s cute. Girl Power might be 1990s, but tweens wouldn’t remember it from the first time round anyway, so THEY wouldn’t know it was old school!

  • Leanne (For Health's Sake) February 10, 2011, 10:28 am

    I think the title with the big YOU in it sounds too Dr. Oz-ish! All of his books say YOU: the owners manual, YOU: being beautiful, etc. Just a thought 🙂

    I got cupping done to me about 2 months ago and loved it! My best friend is taking a course on it so I was her guinea pig. Free cupping is the best 🙂

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg February 10, 2011, 10:29 am

    Lol, I can’t believe you’re going to be moving on to book number THREE in a few weeks! You’re a machine!

  • Ashley (The Vegetable Life) February 10, 2011, 10:33 am

    I could use from cupping right now…. your breakfast made my mouth water!

  • Kathie (Frugal Fit and Fabulous) February 10, 2011, 10:33 am

    I prefer the second title for your book also. So hard to believe you are writing Book #3 already and so soon! You rock!

  • Alison February 10, 2011, 10:34 am

    As someone who was a tween just as the term was coming into common use, I HATED that word! (Although that was 10 years ago, EEK! I like to think that wasn’t so long ago) My advice is to stay away from the word “tween” in the title because it appeals more to parents rather than the girls being interested in the book themselves. Just my two cents!

  • Ann @ Day by Day February 10, 2011, 10:34 am

    I like your Girl Power idea!! In my French class we have to have a group name my group is ‘Le Pouvoir aux Filles’ – power to the girls! Haha. That must be a great feeling being ahead of schedule! Sweet potato in oatmeal is something I must try soon.

  • Emilee Joy February 10, 2011, 10:36 am

    The 90s are back in! Girl Power all the way. 🙂

  • Wendy February 10, 2011, 10:36 am

    How does your book(s) translate to Kindle? I’m wondering if it’s better to buy as a hard copy because of all the pictures. Thanks!

    • Caitlin February 11, 2011, 10:34 am

      I haven’t seen it on Kindle actually! So i Can’t really say, I’m sorry!

  • Clare February 10, 2011, 10:37 am

    I know a few young girls that don’t like being called “tweens.” I would suggest that the title not label the audience as something they don’t even call themselves.

    • Amber K February 10, 2011, 10:54 am

      That’s what I was going to say! 🙂

    • SaraRM February 10, 2011, 11:38 am


      • Clare February 10, 2011, 2:22 pm

        Agreed. I work with teens and have worked with that middle school age group and “tween” is one of the worst words ever invented (to them and to me, blah). All they want at that time is to be a teen, so calling them “tweens” is like a punch in the face!

        • Marie-JourneytoBodyZen February 10, 2011, 10:02 pm

          i agree! i do therapy with some “tweens” and they dislike that title

    • Caitlin February 11, 2011, 10:35 am

      Thanks girls!

  • Lee February 10, 2011, 10:38 am

    Congrats! Book number three – very exciting!!!

  • Caitlyn (A Spoonful of Life) February 10, 2011, 10:41 am

    I love the idea of mixing in sweet potatoes! I’ve been wanting to do that but never seemed to have mashed sweet potatoes on hand. Glad to hear it works 🙂

    Congrats on finishing book 2!!

  • Katie Photiadis February 10, 2011, 10:47 am

    Caitlin, I found your blog a while back and I’ve been following it for some time. It’s a fantastic blog and it’s been really inspiring for me, as I’ve tried to lose weight and develop healthier habits. Thank you!

    Anyway, great job on finishing your second draft! I can’t imagine how stressful that’s been, and I look forward to seeing your book in the stores =)

    • Caitlin February 11, 2011, 10:37 am

      Thank you so much Katie!

  • Joanna@ Drizzle of Sunshine February 10, 2011, 10:52 am

    I love how motivating you are! You tell us you’re almost done with your 2nd (YAY!) and you’re already talking about your next one!! You’re like the energizer bunny!

    I’m really curious about this cupping biz! Sounds amazing! Well the benefits do, I’m not sure about the hickey part. 🙂

  • Amber K February 10, 2011, 10:54 am

    I am so glad that Living Water has received so many donations!

  • Heather February 10, 2011, 10:58 am

    good post, but the best part was at the very end! So happy to hear about the awesome donations! Yay readers!

  • Camille February 10, 2011, 11:00 am

    I really like the “Beauty BeTWEEN the Lines” title! I think you should push for that one!

  • Julie (A Case of the Runs) February 10, 2011, 11:01 am

    Wow, it must be a good feeling! Like that last .2 mile, right?!

  • Beth @ DiningAndDishing February 10, 2011, 11:09 am

    Congrats Caitlin! I can’t believe you have 3 book deals already. Just goes to show how far one good idea can take you :).

  • Ellie @ The Mommyist February 10, 2011, 11:11 am

    I love cupping!

  • Alex @ Healing Beauty February 10, 2011, 11:16 am

    Congrats on almost being done!! That’s wonderful! You are really such an inspiration to me and so many other women and young girls. I hope you are very proud of all of your accomplishments 🙂

    Cupping is so much fun!

  • Laura February 10, 2011, 11:18 am

    Maybe you could explain the book to your GOTR group and brainstorm with them?

    • Caitlin February 11, 2011, 10:38 am

      Good idea! I will do this next week! Thanks 🙂

  • steph February 10, 2011, 11:22 am

    Congrats on almost being done!! I like the Be(YOU)tiful title a lot!

  • Alyse February 10, 2011, 11:25 am

    For some reason when I imagine your husband cupping you, I imagine soft lighting, candles, and jazz music. I just can’t seem to place what Maggie and James would be doing… hmm. I’m weird.

    I like the Beauty BeTWEEN the Lines title.

  • Kelly February 10, 2011, 11:27 am

    Haha octopus hugs, love it. Good luck finishing the book up!

  • nicole February 10, 2011, 11:28 am

    So amazing that you were able to assist Living Water for Girls in raising money! You are quite powerful.
    Congrats on being super close to being done! Girl Power does sort of remind me of the 90s, the phrase was even on my Spice Girls cd, which I bought in sixth grade (that and the abundant daisy and smiley faces)! I think the first title is pretty cute.

  • Erin @ Big Girl Feats February 10, 2011, 11:34 am

    I love when people are able to use their blogs or other social media platforms for good 🙂 That’s awesome – and congrats on almost finishing your 2nd book. Number 3?!?! You are a machine!

  • monicanelsonfitness February 10, 2011, 11:37 am

    woohoo! Almost there. 🙂

  • Lizzy February 10, 2011, 11:43 am

    Hi caitlin! I have a question which you probably have answered millions of times but i thought i would ask anyway. But i just started training again for a half marathon that i want to run in April here in good ol’ michigan. I did my first marathon in october and had such great success in my training during the summer and early fall, and then took a major break from running (which always seems to happen to me cause i get so burned out) but now that i’m “back in the saddle” it feels amazing to get back to running, but this time around for training i don’t have as much time on my hands as i did this summer (due to a change in jobs, now i work more then i did before i switched) and now i feel like i’m stressed about when i’m going to find the time to fit in all my training runs. i don’t work consistent hours (i work in retail) and so every week is different. Do you have any advice for me? thanks so so much!

    Ps: CONGRATS on finishing book #2! this is awesome! 🙂

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) February 10, 2011, 11:45 am

    I didn’t know authors didn’t decide the title! I really like the second title too 🙂 Good luck finishing up today!

  • Beth February 10, 2011, 11:46 am

    That comic at the top of this post made me laught out loud! HA! Congrats on finishing the first draft of book #2! It’s always fun to read your posts and see you realizing your dreams 🙂

  • Kiran February 10, 2011, 11:47 am

    So happy you are ahead of time with the book! And I love the 1st title 😀 One more thing, my shoulders and neck are generally tight if I am too tired or stressed out. Would cupping method work to release those achy pressure points?

    • Caitlin February 11, 2011, 10:42 am

      Oh yes – you should try it. Check out FCIM in orlando.

  • Ashley February 10, 2011, 11:58 am

    Congratulations on the book! I love the comic, so funny. I’m so happy for Living Water, it’s such a great cause, and I’m glad you talked about it yesterday, I had no idea.

  • Clare @ Fitting It All In February 10, 2011, 12:03 pm

    I like the “BeYOUtiful” title, but it doesn’t really explain that the book is about tweens as much as the other. Can’t wait to hear what you decide on…congrats on finishing!!

  • Natalia - a side of simple February 10, 2011, 12:15 pm

    Yay for you and your book! I’m so excited for you and happy that your writing is moving along so well 🙂 And a huge congratulations for getting the word out about Living Water!!

  • Katherine: Unemployed February 10, 2011, 12:24 pm

    cupping sounds crazy! good luck with the book

  • Little Bookworm February 10, 2011, 12:31 pm

    Congrats on almost finishing the second book! I like the second title! 🙂

  • Liza February 10, 2011, 12:50 pm

    Yah!!!! your almost done with the second book. I like the Girl Power title its the most youthful one. It stands out the most too.

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey February 10, 2011, 12:50 pm

    That oatmeal looks incredible!

    I think either one of those titles would be great. I never knew that authors didn’t pick their own titles!

  • bakingnbooks February 10, 2011, 12:59 pm

    I should write a quote on post-it’s over my apartment – “Caitlin is writing – why aren’t you?” 😉 Huge congrats – I can’t even imagine where to begin it and you have such a clear vision. I actually like the 1rst title better – but mostly because it has the audience in mind with TWEEN.

    I had no idea Authors had no say in title?! Really? Is this true in all cases?

    • Caitlin February 11, 2011, 10:43 am

      I think its usually true!

  • Carolyn @ Lovin' Losing February 10, 2011, 1:26 pm

    That’s so exciting about Book #2 being almost done! 🙂 For a title…how about…Operation Beautiful the Prequel: Learning to Love Yourself from an Early Age. Maybe not that exactly, but I like the idea of calling it a prequel since you’re now targeting girls at an earlier age, but in the second book. Whatever the title ends up being..I’m sure it will be fabulous.

  • Mabelle @ dance, love, dine February 10, 2011, 1:45 pm

    Congrats on the great progress and being ahead of deadlines :D. Yayyy for Anti-Procastination 🙂

  • Rachel February 10, 2011, 1:45 pm

    Some random-ness:

    I like “Operation Beautiful: Be YOU(tiful)! ”

    Congrats on your book!

    That oatmeal looked amazing (maybe I’m just really hungry also)

    From seeing your husband’s practice it makes me want to try acupuncture or other alternatives for stress/muscle/etc. relief. If you know any good ones in the Knoxville area let me know.

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) February 10, 2011, 1:48 pm

    I like the second title better too. It makes more sense! good luck in the next 5 days 😀 can’t wait to hear more about this third book! Exciting 🙂

  • Tess February 10, 2011, 1:57 pm

    Congratulations on your book!! I have to say, of all the titles, I really love the second one (Operation Beautiful: Be YOU(tiful)!). That’s what I needed to hear and believe most at that age. I also love the “Beauty Between the Lines” without the emphasis on “tween” idea. Whatever it ends up being titled, though, I know it will be great! You’re amazing!

    • Caitlin February 11, 2011, 10:44 am

      Thank you so much 🙂

  • michelle February 10, 2011, 2:03 pm

    Congrats on being ahead of schedule! What a relief!!

    I like title 2 better than title one. As a teacher of students K-8 I know first hand that they hate the words “tween” “pre-teen” and even “teen.” I’d hate to have your target audience turn away because it says “tween.” Children are people. Not ages. I don’t know that I’d buy a book with the title “quarter-life” or “thirty-something” in it. kwim?

    The right title will pop out – I know it will!

    • michelle February 10, 2011, 2:05 pm

      by K-8, I mean Kinder through 8th grade – not 5-8 years old.

  • ashley February 10, 2011, 2:10 pm

    I like the second title more, if I was that age I wouldn’t want to be called a tween.

  • Shari February 10, 2011, 2:24 pm

    Congratulations on finishing the first draft! Isn’t it such an amazing, inspiring, emotional moment? 🙂

  • Kelly February 10, 2011, 3:08 pm

    I like the Girl Power idea! I agree with other commenters that tween might be off putting. Congrats on almost finishing! You are awesome. 🙂

  • K is for Karma February 10, 2011, 3:26 pm

    CONGRATS! You are soooooo close! I love the Be YOU(tiful) — super cute!

  • Kara February 10, 2011, 3:44 pm

    I’m shocked to hear that you don’t get the final say in the title, I guess there is a lot I don’t know about writing a book!

    I saw on Twitter that you finished, congrats!!!

  • Lisa (bakebikeblog) February 10, 2011, 3:48 pm

    congrats on the book! I am so excited for you!

  • Mary @ stylefyles February 10, 2011, 4:29 pm

    hahah Girl Power!

    I like the second one too though! BeYOUtiful!

  • Kristen February 10, 2011, 4:48 pm

    Congratulations Caitlin. I hope you celebrate today! It must be such a relief to get that book out of your hands!

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss February 10, 2011, 5:39 pm

    Hope you were able to finish the 2nd draft!!! No kidding that has to feel amazing!!

  • Melissa @ Be Not Simply Good February 10, 2011, 6:29 pm

    How exciting – congratulations! I like Be YOU(tiful)! I know I want my daughter to be herself, do her best, and be proud of who she is. 🙂

  • Erica February 10, 2011, 6:47 pm

    Congrats on the book almost being done!!!! That is fabulous. And what a yummy breakfast. The mashed sweet potato is such a great add in. Hope you have a relaxing weekend ahead after all of the hard work 🙂

  • Allison @ Happy Tales February 10, 2011, 6:59 pm

    Congrats on SO many levels… on the (almost!) completion of your 2nd book, on spreading the word about Selling the Girl Next Door…and on starting your 3rd book in the next few weeks! You’re on a roll!

    I am really glad to hear that you are writing a book geared to young women. I wish there was something out there for me that wasn’t cheesy. I think it’s SUPER important to educate young people about health in a real way, especially when they don’t do sports and such. can’t wait to read it!
    TIP – don’t choose the tween title. When I was a tween, I just wanted to be called a teen, and when I was a teen, I certainly didn’t want to be called a tween!

      Thanks 🙂 I think I’m going to nix the tween idea.

    So exciting about the book! Girls that age are the ones who need to hear the message about confidence and positive body image the most 🙂

    I like the BeTWEEN title, for what it’s worth.
    It is SO cool to see the pages piled up like that. I am so proud of you and I CAN’T WAIT TO READ THE BOOK. I hope Sari’s little story is in there somewhere.

    The oatmeal looks fabulous! 😀

    You always make me want to try cupping, every time you talk about it. It sounds so wonderful. 😀

    I’m so excited for you that you’re done the book! And I’m excited for me because I work with tweens, I am anticipating it being a help to me at work 🙂 Thanks so much for everything you do 🙂

    Congrats on finishing the book! I can’t wait for it to come out. I’m a high school teacher and while I teach history I like to keep a lot of tween and teen books and magazines in my class for when kids finish their work early (better for them to pick up a book and read instead of putting their head down and going to sleep!). I have the original Operation Beautiful book on my shelf and my girls enjoy it and I have even seen a few post it notes floating around. Can’t wait to get my hand on the new one!! Keep up the great work!!
