Ch-Ch-Changes ….

As I promised earlier today, here is an update about the many changes that you will begin to see on Eat, Pray, Run over the next few days.question-marks.jpg

I have received several emails from readers expressing a need to see more exercises and get-your-booty-in-shape tools. Many have even requested I post examples of certain exercises and yoga poses that may help common ailments, such as the one we talked about in How Yoga May Help Me Pull the Knife Out of My Head. Other readers said they would also like to see more healthy recipes, and, of course, some of the not-so-good-for-you treats, too!

As a result, you will soon notice two new tabs at the top of the page — one that focuses on exercises taken from trained sources all around the globe (I am not an expert, but I know people who are!), and another that explains to you some of the many recipes that I (OK, my fiancé!) use every day to create healthy meals.

But, my question to you is (if you have not told me yet): What would you like to see on Eat, Pray, Run? What are your favorite aspects and what would you enjoy seeing more of? Some readers have already asked to see more examples of what I eat every day, similar to blogs like Eat Like Me or Kath Eats Real Food, and others just requested a continual emphasis on my life lessons.

I have put together this survey, and I would appreciate you taking a bit of time to fill it out. If you would prefer to send me an email, that is absolutely A-OK with me. I just want to hear from you!

Lastly, here are some housekeeping things that I want you to keep in mind:

  • I read all of your comments. I often post responses, so make sure you check back — I love talking with you! In addition, feel free to write in the comments section located below a post any questions you may have, especially when it comes to foreign recipe contents, exercise concerns and so forth. If I don’t know the answer — for example, I am certified to teach Pilates, but not yoga — I know someone who does! So, rest assured, I can get those answers for you. Don’t forget you can also always email me at
  • Remember to always check at the end of posts and below pictures, specifically ones at the end of a post, to find additional information, such as links to Web sites. For example, in Bald Head or Not, Just Act on It Anyway!, I posted a note about Bekah, a woman who, at age 23, is fighting her second battle with cancer; all of these links and side notes have great information to offer toward our purpose — building our best life!
  • Make sure you check out the sidebar to the right of the site page — there are all kinds of little notes, and tools that make Eat, Pray, Run easier to navigate.

Thanks, readers! I cannot wait to hear from you.

    I’m a new reader so I can’t specifically say “I want to read X” or “I don’t want to read X, but I’d love to hear about X” type of thing. So coming from me, I think the posts are informative. But what about having a post about exercises where you don’t need to have fancy equipment? Like maybe instead of using dumbbells, you use your laundry detergent bottle as a weight? Something of that.

  2. Christina — Great idea! I like the thought of giving readers practical ideas for working out. Sometimes I read through workouts, and I am like, “Really? I have to get that, that AND that before I can start this workout?!” Often the equipment that is required is not very practical, ya know? So, good idea. Thank you so much for the input. I really do appreciate it!

    Great job Caroline!!! However in response to Christina’s idea…I’ll have you know that your lovely new friend Caroline and her younger brother took great pleasure in making fun of me for substituting sloppy joe cans for weights while on vacation about a year or two ago!!! 🙂 ….actually I think they video taped it!!!!…..just saying. All kidding aside I obviously think that your idea is GREAT!!!

  4. I like reading health- and fitness-related sites! And I like the look of yours. I’ll be back. 🙂

    I found your blog on BlogHer!

  5. Zandria — Thanks! I am so glad to hear you enjoy the site. I, too, — obviously! — enjoy reading about health and fitness. Thanks for reading!
