my less serious day: shower stall

Yes, I spent the morning taking pictures of myself in the shower stall. 

Keep your judgments to yourself...

Wearing (desperately need to find a better photo location...).

Jeans: Gap; blouse: LOFT; necklace: gifted via mom from Greece; flatforms: Blowfish.


Late this morning I went on a 30-minute run at working pace. After work I hit the gym for a 60-minute spinning class. I also included two 10-minute walks  during the day. Yes, I work out a lot - I also eat a lot...


Breakfast was a bowl (x2) of Post Shredded Wheat, Kashi Indigo Morning, banana, and almond milk

My mid-morning post-workout snack, banana.

Lunch (part 1) was a romaine lettuce salad with grape tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, green onions, sesame seeds, cottage cheese, and balsamic vinegar. 

Lunch (part 2) was carrots sticks and peanut butter.

My afternoon snack was a plain Greek yogurt, Great Grains cereal, and peanuts.

Dinner was a spin on eggplant pizzas. Roasted eggplant toppd with tahini sauce (1 T tahini + 1 T milk + 1 T apple cider vinegar) on top of a bed of raw spinach. Two slices of Ezekial toast on the side topped with a mash of avocado, goat cheese, salt, and pepper. Everything about this dinner was delicious.

Dessert was chocolate pudding mousse with peanuts and soy-free chocolate chips.

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Tuesday, August 21. 


  1. The roasted eggplant with tahini is a great idea. And that chocolate pudding mousse looks to die for! Glad I found your blog.

  2. Your shower pic totally cracked me up...because I've definitely done those a few times myself. We are nothing if not resourceful!

  3. Haha I love the shower pic! That is how I check out my outfits before I leave the house. Awkward, maybe. But effective!

  4. Great guns girl ;)!
    And carrots with PB, so weird - it just has to be great, have to try this.

  5. okay honestly that is too funny! cute outfit!

  6. LOVE the outfit. And I've definitely had my share of shower stall photo-shoots. haha. You do what you have to do!
    My roommate constantly makes fun of me for dipping carrots in PB. I think she's crazy for NOT liking it. (:

  7. I love the location haha! And your outfit is totally gorgeous - I need jeans like that. And your yoghurt bowl looks amazing.

  8. I haven't had avocado on toast in so long! My favorite way is sourdough bread, smashed avocado, and a little bit of salt and pepper. Soo good!


  9. That is such a nice outfit, I love the necklace! Yumm that roasted eggplant with tahini sauce looks delicious, and so does dessert! :)

  10. I love your capris- such a cute outfit!

  11. Can you please come be my personal shopper? haha. Every time I see the cuteness beaming out of your fashion photos, I look down at my pajamas and wish I had taste :)

    hey, what does "at working pace" mean? is it fast, slow, moderate? i cant figure it out
