So, even though I love-love-love my boot camp, I’ve decided to chill out on it for the month of July.  I am not going to buy the unlimited monthly pass (which I’ve had since March – you can see my results in this post and this post) and may just opt for drop-in classes, if any.


Why? Well, I think I love boot camp TOO much and it’s interfering with my ability to prepare for my  upcoming triathlon.  Remember how I wrote about struggling to find the time to swim, bike, and run?  Well, if I wasn’t spending so much time boot camping, it wouldn’t be so hard!  So – that’s the plan.  Less boot camp, more triathlon workouts.  I think I have a really strong base right now and am hoping the strength training translates well into endurance cardio.  We shall see.


I even have a training plan mapped out and everything.  Whoa, whoa, Caitlin – don’t do anything too crazy like attempt to properly prepare for this big race.  Hah!


Something yummy I ate this weekend…



Super Easy Veggie Frittata


Ingredients (for 3-4 servings):


  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 5 ounces of organic, full-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • Salt to taste
  • 5 mini Portobello mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup yellow and orange peppers, chopped thinly
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • Two large handfuls of baby spinach




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease cast-iron skillet or glass pie dish.
  • In a large bowl, combine the eggs, yogurt, and salt.
  • On the stovetop over medium heat, cook the mushrooms in oil until tender.  At the same time, in another skillet, cook the peppers in oil until tender.  Add spinach to the peppers and cook until spinach wilts.
  • Combine veggie and egg mixture.  Stir thoroughly.
  • Pour into dish and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown on top. 
  • Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

    Mmm frittata! I love eggs!

  • Andrea June 23, 2015, 8:52 am

    I love the new layout. It works great!

    That frittata looks delicious!

    I definitely go through phases with my workouts of what I enjoy doing the most. Boot camp can be so much fun! Just tricky when you get to that point of having to choose between two different workouts – I think it’s about identifying which one you enjoy more and which one *speaks* to you the most. You can always go back to the other one later 🙂

    I often struggle with trying to get “all” my exercise goals accomplished every day. I like my morning walk, but I love my yoga too. I guess it’s all about priorities, but I love the days when I have time for both.

    Here’s my question, if you love bootcamp, but don’t love your tri training, why are you training for the tri? Life is short–do what you love! There is no pressure for you to do triathlons, expect what you put on yourself.

    Hey the new layout kind works weird, not sure if that’s how its suppose to be, the left side (bio, ads etc) keeps flipping to the right and back and forth, maybe you are doing some work. Also, the selection menu covers part of your header.

      Thanks for letting me know! A few questions – are you viewing on mobile or desktop? What browser are you using? And would you be willing to email me a screenshot at caitlinjboyle@gmail.com?? Thanks for reading!

    • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed June 23, 2015, 11:34 am

      Did you clear your browser’s cache? That fixed the issues for me.

    I’m just now catching on about your blog layout changes. Thank you soooo much for changing it. It is a full page now instead of the 3 columns, AND it doesn’t keep shutting down. AWESOME!!!!

  • Dottie (@crazyfitmommy) June 23, 2015, 11:01 am

    LOL when I first saw the picture of the frittata I thought it was a huge chocolate chip cookie!

    Strength training certainly does translate into triathlon endurance! Mostly because it makes speed easier and makes your core stronger. Abs are the first thing to fatigue so you’ll be able to stay faster for longer, and that makes triathlon easier in the end. Enjoy the new speed!

    Love that quote!

  • Rachel June 23, 2015, 4:05 pm

    I’m thinking the frittata is calling my name for dinner tonight 🙂

    Love the new layout but have to scroll, scroll, scroll to get to the actual blog post on my phone.

  • Cody @ onehungryrunner June 23, 2015, 6:51 pm

    Yum, I know what I want for breakfast–such a simple, yet delicious recipe thank you for sharing!!

  • Kim F. June 23, 2015, 7:13 pm

    I thought I was the only one that struggled with this! Bootcamp is always the first thing that I drop when training for events (even though I LOVE it), because I use that time to train for other things… It’s always a difficult decision, and I know that the cross training would help, but I start to feel overwhelmed and then I just stop training all together… And I can’t wait to try the frittata! I’m anxious to hear about the your experience with the Veggie Whole30!

    Awwsome quote. I will keep it in mind as I work to heal a herniated disc so I can run again. Great swim!
