How’s your Monday?  I’m getting through.  Chocolate helps.

Trader Joe’s now has a rice noodle version of Ramen noodles – oh man, it’s been so long since I had Ramen noodles!  You just add boiling water to the package and – ta da! – instant soup.

Would you mind if I shamelessly plugged my two upcoming books?  People often ask me how they can support authors, and I always say the best way to do it is to pre-order new books, as pre-sales are very important to publishers.  So I would very, very much appreciate any support you’d be willing to give!

 

First up: The Healthy Tipping Point book is coming out May 1, 2012.  You can pre-order it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or Indie Bound.

Healthy Tipping Point

Healthy Tipping Point: A Powerful Program for a Stronger, Happier You is divided into three chapters and addressed mental health, healthy eating, and fitness.  The book includes amazing success stories from HTP readers, recipes, and training plans.  I’m really proud of this book because I feel like it truly promotes a balanced, holistic view of health.  If you enjoy this blog, I promise you’ll like the book – it’s PACKED with useful information.

 

Second:  The newest Operation Beautiful book will be released on July 19, 2012.  You can pre-order it on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indie Bound.

Operation Beautiful For Best Friends

Operation Beautiful: For Best Friends is targeted to 8 – 14 year old girls and addresses topics like friendships, bullying, love, life, puberty, parents, finding a passion, and healthy living.  It includes over 100 notes and stories from young girls, as well as adults reflecting on their pre-teen and teen years. I am ridiculously excited for this book to come out because I really believe the stories will help young girls.  This book also includes a forward from the Girls on the Run founder, Molly Barker; if you volunteer for GOTR, the book would make an awesome end-of-season gift.  If you’re an adult or looking for a gift for an older teen, check out the original Operation Beautiful book!

 

Okay – so you indulged me in some shameless self-promotion.  Now, I owe you one!  I recently stumbled upon an old post I wrote called Plug Your Blog.  In the original post, I invited readers with blogs to, well, plug their blog so everyone can find new blogs to read. 

 

If you’re a blogger, simply comment with:

 

  • Your name
  • Your blog address
  • Your blog type (recipes, fitness, healthy living, weight loss, mommy/daddy, life musings, scrapbooking, wedding, photography… whatever)
  • One fun fact about you, an interesting thing you’ve tried recently, or why you think people should check out your blog.

 

Example:

 

  • HealthyTippingPoint.com
  • Healthy Living
  • I’ve giving birth to a baby and two books within a three month time span. Smile

 

Plug yourself below!  (If your comment doesn’t go through, it’s because my SPAM filter is holding it because of the link… I’ll approve it shortly.)  Happy blog reading!

  • *Andrea* February 6, 2012, 2:14 pm

    i think it’s awesome about your two books being published. i purchased the first Operation Beautiful and love the message it had. however, the cover of your new book is kind of concerning to me with the seesaw/scale of exercise/sneakers “trumping” the cupcake/treats. what was the thought behind that?

    • Caitlin February 6, 2012, 2:21 pm

      It doesn’t triumph 🙂 It just balances it out.

      • *Andrea* February 6, 2012, 10:29 pm

        that’s what i thought, just seems like the seesaw is tilted in one way..

    One fun fact about you, an interesting thing you’ve tried recently, or why you think people should check out your blog.
    I wish I had a cool fact like everyone else. How about I love penguins so much I used them as a my rating scale. 🙂

    • the dandelion girl February 6, 2012, 2:40 pm

      Random factoid:

      Psychology Today ran an article sometime in 2010 (maybe late 2009) about the reason that so many humans declare penguins to be their favorite animal… I love them as well btw.

      Anyway, basically what they uncovered is that seeing a penguin (bonus points if it’s of them in action either in person or via a video) boosts our confidence as we think we’re better than them… since they waddle and are funny to watch… We like them because we view ourselves as superior on a subconscious level…

      • Ange February 6, 2012, 3:51 pm

        Awww, that’s kind of sad that so many humans love penguins because we think we’re better than them 🙁

        • the dandelion girl February 6, 2012, 5:22 pm

          Yeah, it’s because we make fun of them…
          It makes sense that it’s true that we would find their lack of coordination and fluidity humorous on a subconscious level… since penguins do make so many people smile…
          I still love them though… especially the fairy penguins… There’s a shop on Etsy that used to sell “I wish I had a Penguin Friend” prints that are hilarious…

    Hi, just wanted to let you know it can be pre-ordered at http://www.bookdepository.co.uk as well. I’ve found this site to be much more “Aus” friendly than sites like Amazon the frequently tell you at the last minute that either they don’t ship to Australia at all or they charge twice the price of the book to ship here.

Where do you think you are?”

    I recently did my first Operation Beautiful sticker here at the office bathroom and loved doing it, so much fun. Totally forgot to take a picture though, I will on the next one. I love that you are doing a book for the young girls, so needed.

    I love, love, love that you are not finding out the sex of the baby. We did the same thing and so enjoyed it. I was convinced it was a boy and I was 100% wrong!

    Enjoy your pregnancy!

    Food, delicious desserts, vegetarian cooking,TRAVEL, and healthy living

    Right now I’m in CHINA (studying abroad for a year!). My blog currently is about my adventures in China trying to find healthy food (it’s hard!), prepping for a half marathon, studying, and just trying to be happy. When I return back to the US in May it will switch to focus more on my adventures in eating healthy, getting crazy good exercise, and finding a job (woo!).

  • Sugandha February 7, 2012, 12:40 am

    Firstly, can I say a huge congrats to you!! I’m really really hoping that I can get this book sent to me here in Australia, since I love this blog!

    So, here’s my shameless plug:

    Sugandha/Sig/Sugar

    http://siggysparkle.wordpress.com

    (I KNOW. Blame the obsession with The O.C. at the time)

    A little of everything – I’m Indian-Australian from Melbourne, Australia and write about life, my attempt at healthy living even while I reach for that umpteenth glass of red wine, feminist topics with a cultural twist, living the life in the Big…err..Melbourne and a plethora of dodgy jokes about my husband and two dogs.

    Fun fact – I’m in the middle of quitting sugar – been sugar free for 4 weeks and never felt better!!

    My blog is called Cookbooks and Cake (cookbooksandcake.blogspot.com) and I originally named it that because I love cookbooks and baking! However, since becoming a clinical nutrition Master’s student at NYU, I’ve been focusing more on whole foods, healthy cooking tips and healthy cooking swaps.

    I like to choose healthy mostly vegetarian recipes that are easy to make, even for the novice chef. So if you are new to the cooking world, I think you’ll enjoy my blog.

    I’m 100 percent Turkish and lived in Istanbul for the last 4 years and just moved to New York City. Sometimes I’ll make Turkish recipes, too.

    Nice idea Caitlin, all the best!

    Better late than never! I deleted my old blog and started a new one recently. I have had many exciting life changes and I thought it would be appropriate to start fresh. Life As We’ve Never Known It is a bit of a mix, but I started with my guy at at time when our lives are changing drastically. It will include everything from work to travel to our life in Europe to horses…you name it.
