Saturday, Oh Saturday

in All Posts

Happy weekend!  I took a little technological break yesterday to get some clinic and writing work done… and then I got sucked into Bridesmaids, which was a hysterical movie. And before I knew it, Friday was over, and it was the WEEKEND!  Hurrah!


What have you got planned for this lovely weekend?  I’m dying for a run, a swim, and some home organization.  We’ve also got a (belated) Halloween party to attend tonight.  So not too boring and not too busy – just the way I like my weekends. 


Our fridge is bare.  Add grocery shoppin’ to the list.


Udi’s gluten-free bagel with goat cheese, over-easy egg, and spinach.  Pretty tasty.


November Push-Up Challenge


This is your reminder to do your push-ups, if you’re participating in the Push-Up Challenge! 



Yesterday, I did 17 push-ups (with a break in between after 10) and 20 girly push-ups (non-stop).  Someone’s chest is buuuuurning today!

    New outfit tonight or are you guys recycling last week’s?

    • Caitlin November 5, 2011, 11:07 am

      We are trying to save money so we need to just throw something together based on what we have. Kristien might go as me and I might go as Kristien. LOL

    about that reality show concept…

  • Jenn November 5, 2011, 11:11 am

    Ha! I loved bridesmaids… It was seriously funny. Now, I have a hard time watching Mike & Molly. It’s like I’m getting her characters confused!!

  • Amanda November 5, 2011, 11:15 am

    I really want to see that movie. It looks hysterical!

    Great job on the push-ups! I can currently only do a handful of “real” pushups, but I’m trying to push myself to do a couple more each week.

    Push ups are such a crazy exercise. They seem to never get easier, which is strange since I think my upper body is pretty strong. I already feel crazy this weekend. I was in the pediatricians office with a sick kid and am just now sitting down to breakfast. Hopefully the rest of the weekend will be relaxing…

    Have a great weekend Caitlin!

    I loved that movie! I really liked the Hangover too, but I liked that I could relate more to the girls in Bridesmaids.

  • Amber K November 5, 2011, 12:24 pm

    Oh shoot! I haven’t been doing ANY push-ups. But I have thought about it? Does that count for anything? No? Darn.

    I actually am apparently the weirdest person ever because I found Bridesmaids more obnoxious than funny. The “jokes” would drag on and on and on until I wanted to poke my eyes out.

    Aubrey and I just don’t have the same humor as everyone else apparently because we also didn’t like The Hangover or Napoleon Dynamite which everyone else in the world seems to worship.

    • Jen November 5, 2011, 2:13 pm

      I’m with you on the Hangover; I didn’t think it was funny at all. The Hangover 2 is even worse if you can believe it. Napoleon Dynamite is overrated–I like the “Canned Heat” dance segment, but that’s the only part that really had me laughing.

  • Christine @ BookishlyB November 5, 2011, 12:50 pm

    Love that movie! Could have done without the bathroom scene, but the Wilson Phillips singalong at the end totally made up for it.

  • Rachel @ Mommygetsmoving November 5, 2011, 1:01 pm

    One of my favorite movies this year. The scene with McCarthy and the puppies was great.

  • honey November 5, 2011, 1:26 pm

    I had a large tortilla wrap with 2 eggs, avocado, and 1.5 oz of full-fat goat cheese with lunch. I think I overdid the cheese. I couldn’t stop eating it and now I have a stomach ache at 12:00 in the afternoon.

  • Julia H. @ The Petite Spiel November 5, 2011, 1:40 pm

    Nice job on the push-ups!

    My weekend is a bit too busy for my liking. I have meetings almost back to back all day from 11-6:30, then another at 8. UGGG! Luckily my day is free tomorrow, but I’ll probably be spending it all scrambling to catch up on homework. Not much of a weekend for me!

  • Sana November 5, 2011, 1:49 pm

    Meganerd and I watched Bridesmaids together! Super funny!

  • kathleen @ the daily crumb November 5, 2011, 2:03 pm

    bridesmaids in absolutely hilarious. glad you finally were able to see it!!

    i kind of like the idea of a belated halloween party — it’s like just when things are dying down and getting boring, there’s another reason to celebrate!

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife November 5, 2011, 2:11 pm

    Nice job on the pushups! I did 14 pushups today –(man) style with my feet on the bench top and my hands on the floor. EXTRA hard. But feels OH so good!

    Have a lovely Saturday!

  • Savannah @ Sweet and Savvy November 5, 2011, 2:13 pm

    I got forty push ups in today! 🙂 [Spread throughout a work out, in sets of ten!]

  • Moni'sMeals November 5, 2011, 2:42 pm

    I did a Ton of push-ups on this am’s workout. Similiar to yours! woo-hoo.. we rule. 🙂

    Have a good Sat and Yes, Bridesmaids is super silly.

  • Katie @ Peace Love and Oats November 5, 2011, 3:05 pm

    My best friend and I actually bought the iPhone app and are just starting! I’m not sure I’ll get to 100 though… haha.

  • AmandaRunsNY November 5, 2011, 3:36 pm

    The weekends never last long enough. The New York Marathon is tomorrow, are you watching?

  • Molly @ RDexposed November 5, 2011, 4:37 pm

    I think my favorite part of Bridesmaids was towards the end of the movie when they were driving back and forth trying to get the love interest/cop to talk to her!

  • Kelly November 5, 2011, 7:07 pm

    I started the push-up challenge after your post earlier this week – I really want to be able to come off of my knees when I do them, and this will definitely help!

    However, I’ve gotten out of the habit of calling modified, scaled or knee push-ups “girl push-ups”. Calling them “girly” (or calling unmodified/standard push-ups “man” push-ups) diminishes our strength. I know I’m nitpicking, but essentially, “girl push-ups” is a term which expresses that women are weaker than men – and that is just not true.

    I see your blog and others like it as part of a wonderful online community supporting strong, healthy women, and I love it! Thanks for all you do.

    • Caitlin November 6, 2011, 7:09 pm

      You have a good point! I just like to say ‘girlie’ 😉

  • Lauri November 5, 2011, 7:41 pm

    You inspired me to try the pushup challenge – I downloaded the app to my phone and have done 2 days so far. Are you doing the program where it has you do several small sets in a row? I was curious because you said you did them in a row…I’m also doing all 30 days of the 30 day shred…10 days on each level. Today was day 1 of level 2 – forgot how much I HATE level 2. Arms and legs burning!!!!!

    • Caitlin November 6, 2011, 7:08 pm

      I’m not really following the program. I’ve done it before, it works – but I think this method might work better for me!

  • Meaghan Ballard November 5, 2011, 9:36 pm

    Holy wow! I am not kidding! I actually just started this challenge on Monday. How weird is that?! Sorry, that was just too real. I just started my second week today and I am noticing a huge difference. Hope it goes well for you!

  • Samantha November 5, 2011, 9:58 pm

    I watched Bridesmaids today! So funny. It gets funnier every time you watch it, I swear (I saw it in theaters).

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed November 5, 2011, 10:09 pm

    I am SO sore from my push-ups! I’m definitely using your approach w/mixing in some girl style push-ups when my muscles are too fatigued. Keep up the good work 🙂
