My worst gym experience ever | 56 of 90


It’s the night before the big shoot and of course things have ALREADY GONE WRONG.

First, we went to go pick up the lighting, and turns out – it was’t just a few bulbs or whatever. IT WAS A FULL CAR.

Thank goodness we just got the new Tesla Model X (our old car would def not be able to fit all of this). No one told us we needed to rent a truck basically!!??? Sam is REALLY not happy about putting all of this dirty equipment in his new baby. He is also not happy about how intense this shoot is turning out to be. I told him that I wanted to make some cool videos and he was all good until he found out that “cool videos” meant really-elaborate-full-on-production-with-a-20+person-cast-and-crew.



Secondly, when we casted the girls for the shoot, it took a long time because I was looking for very specific things. When we finally got the perfect combination of girls, we were so lucky that everyone said they were in! UNTIL…TONIGHT. We had a couple drop outs last minute. Like, WHAT!!!! We started FREAKING OUT.

Luckily, we were able to ask a really nice POPster and a close colleague to step in…hopefully nothing changes when I wake up tomorrow…

Thirdly, there were some issues with our camera rentals and they wouldn’t let our director pick up the camera…


But everything is sorted now.


I ended up going to my heels dance class and being like – okay whatever happens happens. Anyway, on to what I ate yesterday!!

Yesterday’s Recap:

Fit Journal entry.

You guys. Last night I went to the weirdest class I have ever taken on Classpass.

It was supposed to be a weightlifting class. When I came in, the receptionist handed me a piece of paper and didn’t say anything. Then I was like, “what’s this?” She told me it was my workout and to take it upstairs. I was like okayyyyyyy…So I get upstairs and there were a few people hanging around waiting on their phones. I asked one guy if class had started yet (I was already a few min late) and he was like “no, the instructor is downstairs.” So I kinda just waited awkwardly in the corner with my paper. Then a couple minutes later, this guy saunters up the stairs texting and checking his Apple Watch. He finally noticed me after he looked up from his watch 1 minute later, and then asked me, “have you ever worked out before?”

Inside I was furious. But outside, I smiled and politely said yes.

Turns out the paper was our workout for the day, all I had to do was follow it. I found out that the instructor wasn’t going to teach a group fitness class at all! Basically the “idea” was that it was an open gym and I could ask for help if I needed it. Except…he was constantly on his phone the whole time, so I felt like I was always interrupting him!!!

Anyway, I was about 3/4 of the way through my workout when he started turning off the lights!!! He was like “are you done yet?” And I was like “uhhhhh I still have 2 circuits left.” He told me to just finish 1 more but he’s gonna start closing.

You guys. LITERALLY – he turned off the lights on me and another guy while we were still working out. We were bicep curling in the dark. I KID YOU NOT.

I ended up leaving and feeling…really weird and incomplete???

Honestly, I don’t even know what to say.

I’ve had bad classes before. But this tops em all guys.


22% carbs, 42% fat, 36% protein

536 calories

For lunch, I had salmon with cauli rice and some sweet baby bell peppers! Tons of hot sauce and coconut aminos to season my fish and my rice! YUM.

After lunch, I had some seaweed! Love how salty, crunchy, and slightly fatty it tastes. So good.

Of course, my daily kombucha!


33% carbs, 55% fat, 22% protein

708 calories

I had cilantro lime cauliflower rice with ground turkey, pico de gallo, and a side of shishito peppers sautèed in olive oil, seasoned with coconut aminos and Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel seasoning! Oh yes and that is indeed Sriracha that you see!

For dessert, I had my pumpin pie hummus with fresh strawberries!

Yesterday I came in at 1,344 calories, 27% carbs (94g), 49% fat (74g) and 24% protein (82g). Not hitting my protein goal of 125ish again! I’ll need to plan my meals a little better, but right now I’m just trying to eat what’s in the fridge – and that includes my pumpkin pie hummus and my fruits which make me very very happy 🙂 Slowly but surely I’ll get to the 125g protein mark.

Okay gotta got to bed! I’ve got an early call time!!! Make sure to check my IG stories tomorrow to see some behind the scenes!!

    I can’t imagine all the work and stress these “cool videos” must bring… I must say, I like how it does not stop you anyway! That guy was a freakin rude douchebag, ughh!!! The “idea” is a bit weird. Your salmon slices are getting bigger and bigger, I love seeing that! haha

  2. Ashley says:

    Oh man I had a similar experience at my first 9 Round class. The instructor was super rude, and seemed to not even acknowledge I was there. At one point, I mentioned that my wrist was hurting and he replied “Well then you’re probably not doing it right.” Well, help me out then! At the end he was like “I can tell you didn’t enjoy that at all.” So I mentioned I would’ve liked more instruction and he turned it around on me. It was the worst experience.

  3. Laura says:

    That guy was so rude!!! I would tell him something. 😟

  4. Katie S says:

    Wow. That is the worst class EVER! How awful! And he gets paid for that crap?? What a lazy butt! And then to turn the lights off on you guys?? How rude! Ugh. Well, there’s a lesson learned.

  5. What really poor customer service! He’s a you live and you learn. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the downfall of that gym if they continue down that path.

    CAN’T wait, universe opens when it’s supposed Too !!

    1. Omg we share the same name. I thought for a second that I commented.

  7. Mandy says:

    Have you ever worked out before? #lol Cassey is a way better instructor you could ever be!!! 🙂

  8. Christa says:

    Hi Cassey! I know this is a bit personal question maybe, but just out of curiosity; how many calories you burn according to your watch? (Estimated,metabolism and excercise combined).
    🙂 Loving your posts and style, great inspiration!

  9. Sarah says:

    Dang. I know I often default to crappy out-of-control eating when I have a rough day. You should be so proud that you nailed a day of staying on track even when so much went wrong! I hope the shoot goes well and today is way better!

  10. Angie says:

    Hitting your protein target is soooo hard! I feel like it’s oddly high. Some days I think I’m doing great , then I check my food log, and nope!

  11. Rachel L says:

    If you’re happy with your meals where they’re at but still want more protein, have you thought about just sprinkling in a protein shake?
    I’m so sorry for your weight lifting experience, that sucks. And people wonder why others get intimidated by the gym.

    1. mrf82 says:

      I was kinda’ thinking the same thing. The only way for me to reach that much protein is to add in a shake.

  12. Lady-J says:

    How does. one make pumpkin pie Hummus?

    1. Alexis says:

      She buys it. It’s the “delighted by” brand and can be found at Target.

    2. Jody says:

      Boars Head also makes Pumpkin Pie hummus. It is SO YUMMY!!

  13. Laura says:

    I always thought that I consistently hit my protein goals because I eat some sort of protein with every meal… I don’t! I’ve looked at my nutrition section more closely in MFP because I’m watching my sodium intake, and I am so far off! Since I switched to a more plant based lifestyle, I’m not hitting my numbers. Sometimes it’s only in the 20-30g range! I need to get on that!

  14. Heather says:

    I laughed out loud at “have you ever worked out before?” Did you just want to give him a death glare and hiss, “don’t you KNOW who I AM??!?” Seriously though, that’s awful. Is this the gym you go to regularly? I mean, we all have bad days; maybe he just had a fight with his gf or something, but that’s sooooo unprofessional. I really don’t like group classes bc I have an extremely high standard when it comes to fitness instructors. Anyway, kudos on hitting your calorie goals!
