Sunday Wrap-Up

in All Posts

I may hate laundry but I love laundry rooms.


(House huntin’)


How was your Sunday?  It was dreary, cold, and windy today.  I would’ve loved to go on a long walk with James – this week has been pretty lackluster in terms of workouts – but the rain deterred me (after all, I just mopped the floors <— rationalization).  So house huntin’ has to suffice as my cardio of the day.  And afterwards, I was so tired that I just collapsed on the couch.  I know this sounds strange because the baby is always growing, but there are occasionally weeks that I really feel like she’s/he’s experiencing a major growth spurt.  This week is one of those weeks!


Fuel ‘er up.


Lunch was another stir-fry.  Really into stir-fries lately!


Brown rice

Broccoli slaw

White kidney beans



Soy sauce


And for a snack, an apple with hummus and rice crackers. 


For dinner, I wasn’t up to cooking a complete meal and messing up a clean kitchen, so I just had oatmeal, Greek yogurt, and blueberries.  Breakfast for dinner.


Thought of the Day:


“Protect your enthusiasm from the negativity and fear of others. Never decide to do nothing just because you can only do little. Do what you can. You would be surprised at what ‘little’ acts have done for our world.” – Steve Maraboli

    Oooh, your stir fry looks delicious! That sounds like an amazing combo. You’ve inspired me to try out some stir fry variations of my own!

    Oh joy, I can’t wait to be a real grown up and have to do chores.NOT.

    house hunting definitely counts as cardio – lots of walking AND your brain is getting a hard core workout from thinking!

    the stir fry looks delish! just found out i’m also gluten intolerant. Would love to hear more about how you’re dealing with gluten allergies, especially now that you’re pregnant. are you craving bread like crazy? i’m finding its not as tough being gluten free as i imagined…though i think i’m really going to miss croissants!

    • CaitlinHTP February 19, 2012, 8:09 pm

      It’s really only bad when I’m traveling. Have you tried Udi’s bread? It’s really good so I don’t miss real bread along. I think it’s just a lifestyle adjustment. Once you get used to it… not so bad.

    I felt like you did during the second and third trimester. There were just a few weeks where I would be tired and uncomfortable and I was sure he was growing. Then I would get use to it and feel fine for awhile until he grew again! Now that I am 5 days over due I just plain old tired and uncomfortable!!

  • Nena February 19, 2012, 8:08 pm

    Hey! I just saw that you were going to be on TV (news) for the naked face project! awesome! Hope all goes well. I’m sure it will be great. I live near Charlotte.

    • CaitlinHTP February 19, 2012, 8:09 pm

      FUN! I hope you enjoy 🙂

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More February 19, 2012, 8:11 pm

    Breakfast for dinner sounds pretty good…I might have to do the same. 😉

  • Emily @LivingLongfellow February 19, 2012, 8:21 pm

    House hunting causes SERIOUS stress. There’s nothing fun about it! You’ll be so relieved when it’s done 🙂

  • Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon February 19, 2012, 8:37 pm

    I had breakfast for dinner as well–smoothie + toast with peanut butter. Sometimes it really hits the spot 🙂

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats February 19, 2012, 8:51 pm

    I love making breakfast for dinner! It’s my favorite meal and sometimes that’s just what I want.

  • Kristen@Change of Pace February 19, 2012, 8:59 pm

    I love the broccoli slaw in the stir fry. I’ve never thought of that. I really wanted breakfast for dinner tonight but I already had something in the crockpot. I’ve been craving yogurt bowls lately.

  • kathleen @ the daily crumb February 19, 2012, 9:05 pm

    i’ve never tried hummus and fruit… good?

    brinner is the best… especially on a lazy sunday night. no point in messing the kitchen!

  • Caroline February 19, 2012, 9:06 pm

    Don’t you just love having breakfast for dinner sometimes?! It’s always simple and delicious!

  • Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) February 19, 2012, 9:06 pm

    Yeah, those growth spurts are crazy! It continues on when they get out of you too! My oldest wasn’t quite as tall as ke two weeks ago, now he is! Growing kids/babies is crazy!

  • Anj February 19, 2012, 9:42 pm

    Did Charlotte get any snow? I’m in Raleigh and it is snowing. As a native Texan, I’m gettin a kick out of it 😉 With this cold weather, some hot oatmeal is sounding good!

    • CaitlinHTP February 20, 2012, 12:19 pm

      No thank god! Snow is the worst 🙁

  • Luvwhatyoudo February 19, 2012, 10:05 pm

    I love how creative your stirfry can be!!! I usually have a lot of that stuff in the house and forget to throw it together for a meat free meal.

    Thanks for sharing!

  • Liz @ Tip Top Shape February 19, 2012, 10:27 pm

    Another delicious looking stir fry!!

  • Baking Serendipity February 20, 2012, 12:08 am

    I love breakfasts for dinner…especially those that leave the kitchen without a mess 🙂 I can only pull it off when my husband is out of town and it’s one of my special treats to myself to make up for his absence!

  • Khushboo February 20, 2012, 1:40 am

    Brinner is always a winner 😀

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin February 20, 2012, 8:08 am

    House hunting definitely counts as a workout! I would always home home absolutely exhausted after walking around hunting for student housing a few years ago! 😛

  • Sarah@The Flying ONION February 20, 2012, 8:18 am

    That last quote is so true! We can ALL do something. 😀

  • Jodi @ Jodi, Fat or Not February 20, 2012, 9:19 am

    I’m dying for a nice long walk outside! I feel your pain. Love the oatmeal by candlelight haha – enjoy your week!

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed February 20, 2012, 9:45 am

    Hope house hunting is going well! That stir fry looks mega tasty, I’ve been craving one… need to make it soon! Do you just stick the eggs in right at the end and scramble them in everything?

  • CJ @ February 20, 2012, 10:14 am

    What a great quote at the bottom of your post! Thank you for always helping me feel positive, even if it is a monday morning!
    I am glad you listened to your body and rested. It is a fabulous example of balance and I appreciate it 🙂

  • Moni'sMeals February 20, 2012, 11:03 am

    Good news is you can start fresh today!


    I so wish I had a laundry room, I constanly shrink all my clothes because we have a unit in my building…I just feel SPACE would change the situation, ya know. 🙂

  • Amber K February 20, 2012, 1:51 pm

    What a great looking stir fry! I don’t make stir fries nearly often enough, because I can rarely find a good sauce. Liquid aminos is great since it’s gluten-free unlike soy sauce, but it’s a killer when it comes to sodium!

  • mrs. span February 20, 2012, 4:13 pm

    hummus and apples together? yuck!

  • Tricia February 20, 2012, 8:28 pm

    I love the naked juice line! But agreed, the protein ones are really chalkie!

  • Jen February 21, 2012, 11:30 am

    Thanks for the quote! I wrote in on a post-it and stuck it on my desk!
