Did you know that Domino’s makes gluten-free pizza?  I didn’t either!  DadHTP ordered a few pies for dinner – my MIL was over, too, so it was fun little pizza party.


Verdict:  Pretty good, as far as gluten-free pizzas go.  Obviously never going to taste as good as the real thing.  But to have pizza DELIVERED TO MY HOUSE again is pretty cool.  I like it when dinner rings the doorbell.  Hah.


I actually managed to go to bed at a decent hour – lately, I’ve been getting sucked into reruns of Naked and Afraid, which is my new favorite show as I eagerly await the return of Parenthood.  I was definitely banking on a good night’s sleep, but I think my body is in full-on newborn prep mode, as I woke up several times and then was wide awake two hours before my normal time.  It’s a cruel irony of pregnancy that just when you REALLY, REALLY want to stock up on sleep – you can’t!


But all was well because that gave me a lot of work time.  I’m in the process of revamping the Operation Beautiful presentation.  It’s almost speaking season again (I travel the country each year speaking to college students about the movement – I’ve been to over 100 schools now… crazy!).  I’m trying to squeeze in a bunch of events before I get too nervous to be away from the Husband and the hospital, so I’ll be doing a slew this week and in mid-October.

Breakfast time…


Pumpkin Yogurt is back!


Yes, another pumpkin recipe.  What can I say – it’s autumn. You can buy flavored pumpkin yogurt in the store now, but I have long preferred to make my own.


1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

1/4 cup pumpkin puree

Drizzle maple syrup, to taste

DIY Pumpkin Spice, to taste


With oats, banana, chia seeds and sunflower seeds.


Other fun pumpkin recipes:  Pumpkin Pie ice cream and Pumpkin Spice Tofu.


Just for fun…


Currently Listening To:  Sia’s Fire and Gasoline.

Currently Laughing About:  This hysterical Tumblr. 

Currently Drinking:  Coffee (obviously).

Currently Wearing:  A maternity maxi dress that I’ve transformed into a housecoat.

Currently Planning:  To meet up with my MIL to get Henry’s hair cut.

Currently Craving:  A long, hard run (which will not happen for many, many months – but I’m seriously looking forward to it).

Also Currently Craving: Very Orange Tofu Quinoa. Is it lunch yet?

Currently Plotting:  My return to triathlons… I spent an hour last night browsing potential races.  It’s an addiction, I swear.  Oh, and can you tell that I’d love to do a ‘real’ workout instead of a pregnancy waddle down the block?  Yup.

Currently Ruminating On:  This awesome quote.

Currently Looking Forward To:  My friend’s wedding in October.  I haven’t been to a wedding in forever, and Henry gets to wear a tux!


What about you?  What are you currently doing?

    Currently I’m enjoying my last week of work travel before I’m on pre-baby travel lockdown! And baby kicks. All the baby kicks.

    I did know that Dominos makes GF pizza and it’s perfect for when I feel like a good yummy pizza especially one I don’t have to go get. We also have this place near my house that makes AMAZING GF pizza but is kinda expensive so we don’t go that often.

  • Brandy September 23, 2014, 10:43 am

    Just a simple note to say how much I love your blog…been a reader for years.

    • Caitlin September 23, 2014, 1:47 pm

      Thank you!!’ I appreciate it so much!!

  • Chelsea @ TableForOne September 23, 2014, 10:49 am

    Oh, I love pumpkin yogurt and can’t seem to get enough this time of year!
    Currently, I am eating egg bake, drinking coffee, and recovering from my workout this morning.

  • Carrie (This Fit Chick) September 23, 2014, 11:29 am

    I actually just ordered dominos last weekend and saw the gluten free option! I opted for the pan style, but it’s nice to know they have it! Currently I am loving Pandora! I had never used it, but it’s great for workouts 🙂

  • Melissa September 23, 2014, 11:53 am

    Do you have a papa murphy’s near you? I just saw they now offer a Udi’s GF crust! I love their pizzas. Granted its not delivery. But nice if I am out running errands and can pick it up and throw it in oven when I get home.

  • kristin @ W [H] A T C H September 23, 2014, 12:01 pm

    i’ve been wanting to try domino’s GF pizza!

  • Stephanie @ Whole Health Dork September 23, 2014, 1:29 pm

    Too funny-my husband and I were just talking this weekend about how we never do pizza (since I’m GF). We sometimes make our own at home, but as he says, “it’s just not the same.” I was never a fan of Domino’s in my pre-GF life, but I may just have to try it-surprise the husband and bring it home one night for dinner. Thanks for the heads up and good luck with getting some better rest!

    Henry in a tux?! Cute overload! And yes Tris are addicting!

  • Sarah September 23, 2014, 1:57 pm

    This is a tangent but I noticed you still use a video monitor with Henry. My daughter recently turned 2 and I still use (and love using) mine. How long do you plan on using it for? I’m just curious because it will be hard for me to say good-bye to it….it’s just so useful!

    • Caitlin September 23, 2014, 8:05 pm

      Forever?! LOL I love it.

  • Abby September 23, 2014, 3:58 pm

    Currently watching my 2 children and 3 others…everyone is 3 years old and under and they are all napping! I somehow feel like a rock star when I can get them down at the same time and I get a few minutes to myself 🙂

  • Kim September 23, 2014, 4:49 pm

    Naked and Afraid is so addicting!! I’m glad I’m not the only one!! I’m slightly embarrassed to admit it, but I stayed up until 1AM watching the re-runs once.. yikes.

  • Alexa September 23, 2014, 7:30 pm

    Just an FYI that dominos GF pizza is. to safe for celiacs, as they openly admit to cross contamination.

  • Kelli September 23, 2014, 8:02 pm

    YES! I think Parenthood is the most underrated show on television. I cry in every single episode. Every. Single. One. The emotion is real and the acting is so raw, I love it. Anyways, just wanted to say: you have good taste 😉

  • Caitlin H. September 23, 2014, 8:03 pm

    Will you post a list of the colleges you will be speaking at? I’d love to see you speak!

    • Caitlin September 23, 2014, 8:04 pm

      Awww not OSU! I wish 🙂

      St Cloud
      Iowa State
      U of Virginia

      Thank you 🙂

  • Rebecca September 23, 2014, 9:22 pm

    Currently watching premieres of various shows. Tonight is NCIS and NCIS New Orleans. Tomorrow I’ll catch up on Agents of SHIELD and 19 Kids (also on tonight), and next week NCIS LA comes back!
    And rereading Harry Potter and spamming my friends with Hufflepuff related quotes and thoughts because Badger Pride.

    My dad is doing a little presentation on Tris tomorrow at our Y! A lady he knows asked and he wrote out notes for himself on starting training plans and stuff. So that’s a thing that’s happening.

  • Katie September 24, 2014, 12:08 am

    I can’t wait for Parenthood either, but I hate to be the bearer of bad news that this is the last season and there is only 13 eps! I saw Lauren Graham say it on Ellen today 🙁

  • Lizzy @ Fit Lizzio Fitness Blog September 24, 2014, 1:34 am

    I’m currently watching Six Feet Under (twisted but awesome show!) and eating post-boxing chicken with wing sauce! (new favorite obsession).

    I LOVE pumpkin yogurt….especially with cinnamon and stevia. sooo good!
