my less serious day: creepy

My first hip hop aerobics class would have been a lot less uncomfortable if a strange man hadn't stood and watched us shimmy and wiggle for the entire hour.

It is clear glass, creepy man, we can see you.

This morning I went on a 70-minute run at easy pace with L. I fit in one short walk during my day. And, after work I was *brave* and 'got down' while attending a 60-minute hip hop aerobics class (review to come).


Breakfast was my usual bowl of cereal (Kashi GoLean Original + Post Great Grains Cranberry Almond Crunch + 1/2 sliced banana + almond milk). Mid-morning I had a large Pink Lady apple.

For lunch, I had a Lean Cuisine. My first afternoon snack was raw vegetables (broccoli, grape tomatoes, radishes, and cucumber) dipped in yummus (Greek yogurt + hummus). My second afternoon snack was a Special K Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Meal Bar (I forgot to pack extra food to fend off my long run-induced hunger and had to buy something at the snack bar).

Dinner was a piece of whole wheat toast topped with a surprisingly tasty mixture of black eyed peas, marinara, and goat cheese - warmed and melty - alongside a heaping pile of sauteed spinach and onions. I also had a small bowl of grape tomatoes (un-pictured).

Dessert was a 'baked' Pink Lady apple with cinnamon and topped with raw oats and almond butter. I also had a piece of dark chocolate following this to top off my night.

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Thursday, December 17. 


  1. I hate creepers at the gym who don't seem to realize - or care - that you can see them staring!! Sounds like a fun class though.

  2. Mmmm...I'm so down with your cereal bowls - and dark chocolate at the end of the day.
    I came in from a night out yesterday, and lay down on the couch and ate a bar of 85% dark chocolate. It was heaven - I was so content! :-)
    You're such an active bunny, it's awesome! Hip hop sounds fun! (Creepy man does not, lol! :-P) Well done for going out of your comfort zone, that's inspiring, and rad! :-D
    Love your skinny jeans - very cute :-) Have a fab weekend! xyx

  3. The room where they hold classes at my gym is surrounded by all clear glass as well and it's always sooo awkward when people stand outside and watch. Creepy!
    I'm glad you enjoyed your class though. And on top of a 70 minute run? Girl, you are a rockstar.
    Your dinner looks so yummy! :)

  4. That pea, marinara, and goat cheese mixture looks incredible!

  5. Ugh, what a sketchball. Why must these creepy folks be messin' with our workouts? Maybe you could report it to someone who works there--it can't be good for their business.

    That melty cheese/marinara/black eyed peas combo looks heavenly.

  6. I love your necklace and outfit! <3
    That lean cuisine pizza looks great! :)
