Success (?)

in All Posts

Hey, friends.  How’s your Saturday going? :)  I did a little work, a little running, and a little relaxing. 


First up: got a bunch of work done at the clinic.  Brought a packed lunch, too!



A hummus and fresh basil (try it – amazing) sandwich with tomatoes and watermelon spears (not related to Britney) on the side.  Yum.


And I somehow convinced Nicole to go on a run with me – I LOVE running with Nicole because we always chat about really interesting things (sometimes totally inane and sometimes quite intellectual).  It makes the workout fly by.


I did 5.0 miles in about 54 minutes.  Although my IT band felt a little funny at one point, so far, there is no pain – so I consider the run a success (so far).  I made sure to stretch before and after the run.  I also iced my knee afterwards and used a foam roller.  Keep your fingers crossed for me!


Post-run snack was Yoforia!  ‘Tis the season for froyo.


Healthy Living Summit 2009 flashback – HOLLA.


Psst – Plans for 2011 are still underway!  No firm deets yet to share.


My bowl:


Banana, cookies and cream, and vanilla froyo with lots of fun candy bites on top.


Nicole in action:


A blogger does what she has to do.


We’re going dancing tonight.  Wahoo!

    I have been craving froyo SO much lately and its just difficult to find near me… I was just plotting how I can somehow go to a restaurant tonight that is close to a fro yo place haha

  • Freya March 19, 2011, 5:06 pm

    Ooh I hope your IT band holds up!
    Oh looks so tasty, yet I’ve never had the chance to try any before :'( le sigh!

  • AJ @ Flowing to Fifty March 19, 2011, 5:08 pm

    I see flip-flops with the frozen yogurt. So envious!! Glad the run went well and looking forward to your announcement.

  • Lisa Fine March 19, 2011, 5:09 pm

    I wish we had a frozen yogurt place closer to where I live – but I suppose I can get my fix when I visit my parents or go on a drive further away.

    Glad to hear the run went well – I would think the foam rolling would help. Do you think if I feel pain in my hip when I run, it’s related to IT band issues?

    • Caitlin March 20, 2011, 11:45 am

      There are so many things it could be – IT band, bursitis, a pulled muscle… There is really no way for me to guess! I would take a running break. Don’t run through pain!

  • Carrie (Moves 'N Munchies) March 19, 2011, 5:09 pm

    love your fro yo toppings!! it seems there are SO many froyo places in the US now!! to think it all started out with Pinkberry eh?

  • Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete March 19, 2011, 5:09 pm

    I’m glad your run went well — hopefully your IT band keeps cooperating!

    I am looking forward to hearing more about HLS 2011!

  • DadHTP March 19, 2011, 5:20 pm

    if she had froyo today, will she have gingerbread tomorrow?

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) March 19, 2011, 5:25 pm

    Oh frozen yogurt is perfect this time of year! I hope your IT band stays on the mend. Have a great evening Caitlin!

  • Julie @ Shining From Within March 19, 2011, 5:28 pm

    I’ve been loooooving fro-yo lately! I recently tried a red velvet cake flavor…MMMMMM. And that picture of watermelon has got me craving sweet, juicy fruit. And summer!

    • Caitlin March 20, 2011, 11:45 am

      omg i would be all over red velvet cake!

  • VeggieGirl March 19, 2011, 5:42 pm

    YAAAAY dancing! Have fun! 🙂

  • britt will be fit March 19, 2011, 5:48 pm

    yogurt is my favorite!

  • Lindsay Perrone (goodiesgalore) March 19, 2011, 5:54 pm

    Add some TJ’s tomato paste to that sandwich. Ridonk.

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss March 19, 2011, 5:57 pm

    Froyo is the perfect post-run snack. Seriously wishing I had some now!

  • Jolene ( March 19, 2011, 5:59 pm

    Oooooh, have fun dancing!!! I love going out dancing 🙂 I have some pretty wicked sweet moves on the dance floor (especially after a few pints)!!

  • Kristy @ KristyRuns March 19, 2011, 6:03 pm

    Watermelon sounds so good right now! You’ll need to that extra hydration when your working up a sweat on the dance floor tonight! Have fun!!!

  • Theresa @ActiveEggplant March 19, 2011, 6:25 pm

    “…and watermelon spears (not related to Britney)…” That just might be the funniest thing I’ve read in a LONG time!

    • Caitlin March 20, 2011, 11:46 am


  • Runeatrepeat March 19, 2011, 6:40 pm

    This post made me remember I ate an entire package of watermelon spears yesterday on the way home from the store. Totally forgot until now. Oops.

  • Baking 'n' Books March 19, 2011, 6:48 pm

    What is it about the ground?! LOL. Oreos…oh Lordy.

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin March 19, 2011, 7:02 pm

    Mmm fro yo. There’s a self serve place opening in my town this summer and I’m almost peeing myself with excitement!

    Glad to hear that your run went well! 😀

  • Kristen March 19, 2011, 7:15 pm

    I think I’ve seen some similar yogurt places in my new city…I’ll have to check them out once the weather gets a little nicer.

    Congrats on the successful (so far) 5 miler!

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat March 19, 2011, 7:16 pm

    The froyo looks delicious!! I can’t wait to hear about HLS 2011 – I wasn’t able to make it last year but am 100% planning to this time around!

  • Sarah (Running To Slow Things Down) March 19, 2011, 7:53 pm

    I love froyo! You have the perfect toppings on yours. 😀

    Have fun dancing tonight! 😀

  • Lee March 19, 2011, 7:55 pm

    There are tons and tons of frozen yogurt places around here, but Yoforia still reigns supreme in my mind.

    • Caitlin March 20, 2011, 11:46 am

      AGREE. Yoforia for the win.

  • Kris March 19, 2011, 7:58 pm

    Oh noes, now I need watermelon and frozen yogurt. But my legs are too tired to move, so tomorrow I will hunt them down.

  • Laura (Starloz) March 19, 2011, 8:01 pm

    oh dancing. have fun.

    you know whats weird, i don’t really like bread but i could totally eat toast every single day!

  • Jen March 19, 2011, 8:03 pm

    I was craving frozen yogurt this afternoon, but never ended up getting it! I’m jealous. Have fun dancing!

  • Tessa @ Amazing Asset March 19, 2011, 8:28 pm

    I am so jealous of all the great frozen yogurt places in the south! The closest one to me is about 35 minutes away. Yes, I have driven there some nights to get it! 🙂

  • Parita @ myinnershakti March 19, 2011, 8:46 pm

    Love me some Yorforia! Have fun dancing! Can’t wait to read about it.

  • Steph March 19, 2011, 8:56 pm

    Hahaa watermelon spears! Looks delish; is watermelon in season?

    • Caitlin March 20, 2011, 11:47 am

      Not yet 🙁 That was imported… which I only realized when I looked at the label at home. I felt bad!

  • Julie @ Lettuce Choose Healthy March 19, 2011, 9:17 pm

    i still have yet to try froyo! .. i cant wait til summer for watermelon everyday!

  • rebecca lustig March 19, 2011, 9:22 pm

    i’ve been soo into fresh tomato and basil combinations this week! grilled cheese, hummus, you name it, i’ve probably tried it!

    love me fro yo.

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife March 19, 2011, 9:24 pm

    I heart froyo!!!! 🙂 And I love watermelon–good picks today, lady!

  • Angela @ MyPinkyToes March 19, 2011, 9:50 pm

    I’ve just discovered a Yogurtini near where I live and I’m obsessed with it! I live the coconut flavor with strawberries and blueberries and cherries and chocolate chips. Soooooo good!

  • MorgzSyd March 19, 2011, 10:24 pm

    that froyo looks heavenly!

    visit my blog

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey March 19, 2011, 11:21 pm

    I love hummus sandwiches – try putting some avocado on them too. I’m drooling just thinking about it.

  • Michelle (The Runner's Plate) March 20, 2011, 12:15 am

    I love running with friends who are can carry on a good conversation!

  • Jennie March 20, 2011, 12:41 am

    Do you “real” bloggers actually carry around your DSLRs wherever you go?
    It seems so cumbersome. I was thinking, I need a good little point&shoot for when I’m out at restaurants and stuff. What are your tricks?

    • Katherine: Unemployed March 20, 2011, 6:07 am

      too true; that picture of Nicole has me curious

    • Caitlin March 20, 2011, 11:49 am

      I carry my SLR everywhere I got except when I go to the bars/clubs. I just put it in my purse. I don’t have a really expensive lens, though. I might feel differently if I did!

      I have a Canon P&S that is really good for low lighting, though!

  • Emma (Namaste Everyday) March 20, 2011, 3:26 am

    so glad to hear that you IT felt good! I was also glad to hear to you consumed a heavenly froyo bowl!

  • Michelle March 20, 2011, 8:29 am

    That fro yo looks so delicious! Fingers crossed for your IT Band. I recently had to drop out of a half because of hip issues and it sucked! Like you said, not the end of the world, but its still a little disheartening.

  • The Teenage Taste March 20, 2011, 9:31 am

    That fro-yo looks realllllyyyy good right now! 😉

  • Claire March 20, 2011, 10:07 am

    It IS the season for froyo 🙂 hehe

  • Courtney March 20, 2011, 10:18 am

    Yum your yogurt looks divine! 😀

  • Amber K March 20, 2011, 12:40 pm

    We FINALLY got a fro-yo place here! I was so jealous all last summer with every blogger and their mom getting such tasty treats. I tried an Irish Mint flavor last week and it was sooo amazing!

  • Andreea @ Journey To USA March 20, 2011, 2:34 pm

    Does Nicole had done some cupping terapy recently?? I wonder if the marks on her back are from cupping or from the sun?
    Silly question.

    • Caitlin March 20, 2011, 2:40 pm

      Yup she was cupped!

  • Allison @ Happy Tales March 20, 2011, 5:23 pm

    Yummmm, Yoforia = heaven in a bowl. Can’t wait to hear about the HLS 2011 plans! When will everything be announced? Is it on the East coast this year?

    • Caitlin March 20, 2011, 6:28 pm

      No deets really to share! But yes… def east coast.

  • Sam @ the neurotic yogini March 21, 2011, 1:11 pm

    Hummus and basil sandwich… very interesting but sounds good! Will have to try it sometime soon 🙂
