Okay...So I have too many photos and not enough thoughts so here is a WIAW photo dump for your visual pleasure. Thanks Jen for the link up!! 
So much fun and SO many good times! Now though I am detoxing with some fresh juice!
Hope y'all are having a wonderful Wednesday and I hope your weekend was as good as mine! 

What are you eating this Wednesday?
Do you ever feel like you need a "detox" after an unhealthy weekend?

I would LOVE to say "Oh it's Wednesday ALREADY?? This week is just flying by!" but I can't. This week is crawling and it is only Tuesday night. Oh well onto some eats....
I swear I had more that liquids and granola..there is just no photographic proof...ehhh it wasn't that pretty of a meal anyway. For lunch I had a plain kale salad and some hard boiled eggs (booorriinnggggg). I don't know what I was thinking packing that lunch last night. It was lame and didn't even taste all that great. I am drinking the Kombucha right now and planning out dinner. I ran 3 miles yesterday (yayyy me!!!) and today I am taking a break so my knee doesn't get too angry at me and quit the team. I loved being all tired and sweaty and it definitely put me in a good mood after a long day at work. 

I have also been attempting to break out of my fashion rut with these:

I rarely wear prints, let alone printed pants, but the muted colors (black and gray) helped me feel a bit more comfortable and it felt good to mix it up and not just wear the same 3 outfits to work. I have another new outfit planned for Thursday so the firm better watch out ;) 
I hope your week is going by faster than mine! 

Anyone else own printed pants? Do you like that they make you stand out more or no?

Thanks as always to Jenn from PeasandCrayons for hosting!

Hey hey hey...it felt so weird last week not posting for WIAW so of course I had to come back full charge.
I swear I love the company I work for (3 months in and already so naive) but they are seriously trying to make me fat. Granted they don't shove the bagels and muffins down my throat but who says no to a veteran's day breakfast?? (Side note: Thank you to all of our sexy men and women in uniform and retired for all you do!). Next photo is my lunch today - big 'ole bowl of kale with a chipotle black bean veggie burger and a mixture of sriracha and ranch for dressing. Picture number 3 is the epitome of love in a bag and number four is me continuing my over priced juice obsession. I love me some expensive beverages. 

For dinner I am having left over spaghetti my mom made. She will never get me to move out if she keeps stocking the fridge with leftovers and fresh produce ;)

This weekend consisted of a lot of work and me FINALLY making an appointment with a trainer again! Granted the appointment isn't until next weekend and it is after 4 months of no strength training except for plank and some squats but ya gotta start back up sometime! Any advice for me on how to not totally kill myself?? (my trainer knows I won't quit but hasn't quite figured out that I won't tell her when I am about to pass out).

Well that's all I have for now! Hope y'all have a lovely Wednesday!
Look-ey Look-ey at the new theme!!! If only Jenn knew that I basically pound Halloween candy like it's water and there is nothing "healthy" about the season for me...oh well I guess there is no time like the present to start growing up!

Another Wednesday and another week I have forgotten to take pictures throughout the day. Today I started off pretty solid with a breakfast photo:
(I didn't say it was exciting but it was breakfast so it counts). Chobani with Love Grown granola and the usual coffee.

So I had mung bean cakes for lunch. I have no idea what they are except that they are sold at the Korean grocery across the street from where I live and they are so good. I drench those puppies (I hope not!...sorry bad joke....) in Sriracha and I am good to go. I was going to take a picture but I was at work and the lunch room was oddly busy at 2pm. I was already eating semi-stinky food, I didn't want to then take a picture of it...

So instead I will show you something I am so proud of:
LOOK AT THAT FRIDGE!!! Veggies galore up in that .....female dog....

I am so excited to jam pack my lunches this week and weekend with every single bit of this (or as much as my mom will allow without getting mad that I stole all the broccoli again).

Finally, a little cute snack that I had today (so count 'em folks, thats 1 meal and 1 snack I have photos of, I am the C student of the WIAW world).
My mom's note with the plums I ate for snack today. 
How is everyone's week going?? How do you plan to implement the new theme?
Is this really my 5th already!?? WOW time sure flies! Thanks to Jenn for hosting and coming up with this great idea!

This week has been slllooowwww...but crazy at the same time. The weekend cannot come soon enough! Here are the eats:
Not the prettiest eat for sure but it's a kale and veggie chicken salad with tzatziki as the dressing. So.Freaking.Good. 
Snacky of carrots and more tzatziki...When I like something I kind of go on a bender...oops.
One of the many caffeinated loves of my life keeping me awake while I work.
I wanted to do a whole post just about these babies but held myself back. Corn Bread crackers though??! It's like the food gods heard by pleas and created this. I ate the whole box in 2 days and 2 sittings. So So good.
So we are missing dinner and to be honest I have no idea what it was. I think it was spaghetti but it could have been avocado pesto pasta. Either way it was delicious (as if I wouldn't eat it if it wasn't... ;))

Sorry this one feels a little lackluster...this week has put me in a funk so far...

How do you get outta a weird funk? Do you ever feel off and not know why?
Wednesday already?? Just the realization to brighten my mood! Here we go....

Can't wait to see what Jenn has in store for October!

Apparently my good habit of this month is not going to be learning how to take photos of just one days eats...but oh well more for you to admire I suppose ;)

To your left is my beverages of the weekend...fairly balanced?

It was Oktoberfest alright?? I did chug the water and Kombucha the rest of the weekend though..so not all bad.

To your right is my snacks for the work week. 

Finally found granola without all the oil and stickyness most seem to have! 

Plus some corn chex and a Clif Z bar rice crispy treat thing (cause I'm 5).


This was my yummy find of the week. I LOVE putting veggie "chicken" patties or veggie burgers over either a salad or steamed veggies at work and I finally ran out of the Chipotle Black Bean Burgers I found at Costco. These were pretty darn good and only 120 calories! 


Perfect for my Kale (and edamame cause I had some frozen and it had no big future plans) salad! YUMMM 

I also had this....which I need some help with...It's like "Who Wants to be a Millionare" and I'm polling the audience....

Anyone else think this tastes really weird and is strangely watery??

I love greek yogurt but this flavor just wasn't hitting any of the right spots.

Anywhooo....Hope everyone is having a great week! It's finally starting to cool off in LA!
Yay for my first time! ;) Now I apologize in advance for the lackluster photos, but I promise they will get better with practice! Onto the eats...

As always, thanks to the lovely Jenn for creating this great blogger meet up!
Attempting to eat breakfast was a challenge for me. I rarely eat more than candy and a few crackers but this is the new Caitlin right?? Right. So yummy blueberry yogurt and granola it was and voila my stomach wasn't grumbling through morning meeting and phone calls like usual.

I make some damn good lunches. It is just a fact. This was my idea of a thai-esque salad and had kale,bean sprouts, edamame and peanuts with a light honey mustard dressing. I know, I know, the dressing hardly fit the theme but it was what I had in the work fridge and it still tasted delicious.

This is what I "should have had for dinner" instead of what I actually had. After work and the gym I met up with some friends at a local dive bar to hang out and instead of a veggie stir fry like what is chilling the the left I had cocktails and mexican food once I got home. Oh well, can't win 'em all.

On the up side (of my total diet  failure that was "life after 6pm" I managed to only eat two of these delicious little morsels! Yay for keeping my sugar tooth under control! 

Well today has been crazy long at work and then with a spinning workout so it's time for a little quiet time and then Teen Mom - yeah I'm obsessed, I'll admit it. 

How do you keep the healthy eating going when out with friends?
