Bake, Clean, BBQ, Party

Good morning!

Last night I shocked myself. I put off my run all day and then I actually made it out for a run- get this- at 8:45pm! Typically, when I put off my workouts they just don’t happen, but Eric agreed to do a run-bike with me last night. :) It was the first night time run I have done all year I think!

Before the run, I decided that I wanted to run at a quicker pace for the entire run and really challenge myself. Unfortunately, my dinner had not settled and my stomach was feeling a bit full! I made the best of it though and just tried to ignore it.

The run:

  • Duration: 39 minutes
  • Distance: 4.66 miles
  • Avg pace: 8:34 min/mile
  • Max heart rate: 168 bpm
  • Avg heart rate: 154 bpm

It was a great run!! I felt awesome really pushing myself and running fast. Eric kept cheering me on from his bike and then we high fived at the end. lol. ;) It was so nice going on a run when it wasn’t super hot out!

PS- Only 49 days until my half marathon!!! :)


I was so hungry when I got back I had half of a cantaloupe right out of the skin- Caitlin style!



This morning I started my day with a wonderful green monster of course. I had it next to my basil plant that is finally growing and my dill plant that is not.


I made my Pumpkin-Banana-Kale green monster and it was delicious!

On today’s agenda:

  • Bake Eric vegan cupcakes (AM)
  • Clean house (AM)
  • Take Eric out this afternoon (PM)
  • Prep for tonight (PM)
  • 7:30pm: Have friends over for BBQ and drinks (PM)

I am off to bake some vegan cupcakes in a bit! What kind should I make??

Enjoy your day. :)

How much sun does your dill get? Dill likes hot and sunny!

I was looking through Vegan Cupcakes and spotted many interesting recipes — Smores, Chocolate and Vanilla, Maple or Peanut Butter. I hope Eric has a fun afternoon and great HBD night with the friends!

I saw on Twitter that your carrot cupcakes didn’t turn out so well–bummer! They did look really cute though.
