In the gym that is!
I finished packing! I was able to get everything comfortably in just a duffle bag and my NorthFace backpack, so I think I am going to carry everything on the plane. When I traveled throughout the UK for a week I survived with only a backpack, so this was a piece of cake! It requires wearing some articles of clothing twice and worst of all – having poor shoe fashion – but I will survive.
I was excited to get to the gym for one last hurrah this afternoon. In celebration of my travels, I did a little around the world:
- 30 minutes Stepmill
- 15 ET
- 12 Stat Bike
- 10 Squirrelliptical
- 8 lifting
I made my visit today a little longer because I decided to skip a trip tomorrow. My morning will be much more relaxed if I can just get up and enjoy my last few hours with Matt over oatmeal and coffee. We’ll depart for the airport around 11:30-12 for my 2pm flight.
Since I was at the gym, I wasn’t around for an afternoon snack and was quite famished when I made dinner at 7.
I present: Pimento Mac + Cheese
Ever since I had Kelsey’s Pimento Cheese I’ve been craving it big time! So since Veggie Mac was on the menu tonight as an easy last-minute meal, I turned it into Pimento by adding…pimentos! And some aged white cheddar on top. SO DELICIOUS!
This was Annie’s Mac + Cheese we bought in bulk from Costco. It’s not whole wheat, but it is cheap! I had a 1 cup portion and a mixture of sauteed fresh peppers + broccoli + frozen okra on the side. I usually mix my veggies in with the mac, but tonight I preferred them on the side. I think I like them better this way.
That red topping? Sriracha. LOVE this stuff. It’s super spicy and garlicky. Not the best for breath, but it sure adds a kick.

The best soup ever was spotted yet again! Over at Food For Living: Kath’s Nutty Vanilla Sweet Potato + Kale Soup.
See y’all tomorrow for one last American breakfast 🙂
