I’m Lovin…

CinnaChip bread from Great Harvest is one of my favorite gluten-free treats. So tasty.  I bought a loaf yesterday, and we’ve already polished off half.


It’s excellent for French toast!  But pretty delicious just with butter, too.



The salad-a-day thing has been going well, too.  It’s nice to eat a salad in between all those slices of CinnaChip.


The always-hysterical blogger Allie Brosh from Hyperbole and a Half published her first book!  I am requesting this book as a stocking stuffer (hint, hint – Husband). If you’re a fan of her blog, you may remember she took a loooong hiatus to deal with her depression and (I guess?) write this book, so I’m very curious to read it. It’s received rave reviews!


Henry is ob-sessed with these Melissa and Doug Wooden Animal Magnets. It’s so fun to watch him take them from the box, identify the animal (I think he knows about half), make the noise, and slap it on the fridge.  I especially like it when he squeals, “HORSEY NEIGGGGGGH!” Too cute.

My blog friends ran some incredible races this past weekend!  I have to do a plug of their race recaps because – man – these ladies did awesome.  Theodora from Losing Weight in the City ran the New York City marathon in 3:56:24.


Meghann ran Ironman Florida in 13:05:22 (AKA awesomely fast!). I followed her progress all day long on Saturday – don’t you love races that have online athlete tracking?!  I couldn’t believe how fast and evenly paced she completed the event.  Meghann really helped me a lot through my own training, and I was just so-so-so happy to see her (and her siblings Kelly and Ben) do well! 


And my favorite redhead Monician finished the New York City marathon as well; Monica ran it in 3:41:23.  Killer, right?! 


I wish I could get faster just by reading race recaps by fast friends. 🙂


And last, but not least, here’s a great article to read if you ever feel like an imposter at work… Do Women Everywhere Suck At Their Jobs?


“Researchers find that impostorism is most often found among extremely talented and capable individuals, not people who are true impostors.” Those plagued by insecurity are paradoxically more likely to be high-achieving. Their doubt drives them to push themselves harder—and, conversely, their perfectionism makes them belittle themselves for doing entirely competent work. The more expertise you acquire, the more you feel like you have to learn.

    Is that bread available at all Great Harvest stores or online? I can never find gluten free options at my local location.

    • Caitlin November 6, 2013, 10:03 am

      My store only does it on Tuesdays.

    Caitlin please instagram a video of him making the horse sound- so cute! lol

    This morning I am randomly loving the idea of running a marathon. I’ve done a half and told myself I could never do a whole but for some reason the idea excited me today. I have been slacking so much on my exercise and I miss how I used to feel so in love with running so I decided, why not fall in love again while training for something I thought I could never do? Scary! I am going to read your re-cap of your first one now 🙂

    I’m pretty sure that the Slate article was written about me. As I now feel like a bad employee taking a break to read a bit this morning. 😉

  • Melissa November 6, 2013, 10:23 am

    Yum! The french toast looks and sounds so good! I love the addition of fresh berries.

    Oh wow. Thank you for that final paragraph about being an imposter at the job. I feel this way so often in my work. I am an aqua aerobics instructor for a medically based health club. I do not look like your typical instructor AT ALL. I am 49 years old and a size 20-22. I am a big woman that kicks butt and a favorite instructor with large class sizes at the club but still feel inadequate most times. All because of my age and how I look. Especially how I look. I often feel like an imposter and it’s all on me. I keep it inside. Reading that quote from the article makes me realize that I am genuinely good at my job and I love it so much. I am keeping this so that when those feelings start to surface I will read it and be reminded that I am not an imposter but truly worthy and good at my job.

    • Caitlin November 6, 2013, 10:35 am

      You should like someone I would love to have as an instructor !!!

  • FitBritt@MyOwnBalance November 6, 2013, 10:25 am

    Mmm that CinnaChip looks delicious! I totally believe that about feeling insecure and driving for perfection!

  • Autumn November 6, 2013, 10:38 am

    I just ate chocolate covered macadamia nuts my friends sent me from Hawaii and I LOVED it.

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More November 6, 2013, 10:53 am

    Cinna chip is gluten free? Ugh…I need a GH in my area!!

  • Suzy November 6, 2013, 11:31 am

    I’m loving everyone’s race recaps! Including your Half Ironman: ) I just started training for my first half marathon (doing Charleston, SC in Jan), reading everyone’s stories are so amazing and inspiring.

  • Sara @ LovingOnTheRun November 6, 2013, 11:52 am

    Great harvest bread company! I miss that so much from living in NC! CinnaChip looks DELICIOUS! 🙂

  • Janelle November 6, 2013, 12:45 pm

    Not sure if this is weird to say… but the picture of Henry in footie pj’s makes me want a baby… stat. Haha. Instead, I shall entertain myself with those race recaps.

  • Kimberly November 6, 2013, 12:48 pm

    Reading that article was so refreshing! Especially in the midst of busy season when I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed and with my review/raise coming up, I needed to read that!

  • Patience November 6, 2013, 12:58 pm

    I don’t usually comment, but wow, that imposter article really resonated. I’ve just been promoted to a senior position and I’m convinced I’m not really qualified, although it was my own boss who urged to me to apply for the new job.

    • Caitlin November 6, 2013, 2:08 pm

      Congrats on your job 🙂 I know you will do well.

  • Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs November 6, 2013, 6:07 pm

    Oh man, Henry is too cute in his footie pyjamas!

    Also, that french toast looks delicious — yum!

  • Emily @Sinful Nutrition November 6, 2013, 8:18 pm

    Just the name cinnachip has me wanting a slice! I’m no where near as fast as those ladies, but hey someone’s gotta make them look better, right? ; )
