Packin’ up an headin’ out

This morning I woke up with a mission.  My one and only goal for the day was to finish off the bottomless bag of Stacy’s Pita chips.  That’s it.  Coffee, whatever.  Exercise, puh-lease.

I simply wanted THESE deliciously addictive, wonderfully horrible, pita chips out of my apartment life.  The way these mothahs taunt me is inexplicable…

And lemme tell you, when I set my mind to something, I get ‘er done.

Stacy says the bag has 28 servings.  Elise says 8.  I wish Stacy were right, but the reality is she’s way off base.  Like Charlie Sheen’s wife, she better get her story straight or there could be scary consequences.  I kid, I kid.  The truth of the matter is, I will probably replenish my stash as soon as I get back to NYC…it’s a sickness really.

Anyways, in case you’re wondering, I did eat more than chips for breakfast.  Between licking my salt covered fingers, I had coffee and two yellow apples, before heading off to the gym. 

Since I was in a time crunch (flight to catch, packing to finish, hair to tame, layers to apply, etc.), I ripped through 30 minutes on the elliptical and 15 minutes on the bike before stretching and returning home.  I may have lost my face on the way back to the apartment.  According to the news there were 22 mph winds, but I swear it was more like 50!!  It was SO strong I could hardly walk into it.  I basically added another 5+ minutes of resistance training into my workout.

Look what I found on my doorstep!

Peek-a-boo!  Newman’s I see you.

I won I won I won.  Jessie at Vegan Minded had a Newman’s Own giveaway and I was the lucky recipient of a TON of yummies.

Thanks Jessie!

The rest of the afternoon I spent racing around the apartment getting myself organized for my flight home.

Bars.  Fruit.  Tea bags.  Starbucks VIA.

As you can see I was scrounging to find things to bring aboard with me…but I also wasn’t too worried since I was flying on Virgin.  THE BEST AIRLINE EVER.

They have (free) vegan snacks aplenty, leg room like whoa, free WIFI, and sexy night club lighting. 

So in addition to the above, I had hummus with veggies, crackers with Justin’s almond butter, Popchips, and a granola bar

Which made the 7 hours “fly” by (pun intended). 

Alright, that’s enough rambling about nothingness for the day.  Tomorrow I’m going sledding with my sisters.  Stay warm peeps!

        Hahaha–I have only been to CA twice, and both times to LA in the summer…shows what I know, lol! I guess that is what you get for growing up and living in the East coast and Midwest :-)

        Have fun with your family and enjoy your belated Christmas celebration!

    I spy some Hermits and that’s all I care about.

    I wish that Virgin flew out of DTW but they don’t so I’m stuck on Delta/NWA – booooo. I’m counting down the minutes until you get your hands on another bag of Stacy’s Crack. Simply Naked, why must you be so addicting?!

    i think we are best friendmates. I mean i demolish bags of sun chips and they never see it coming. Its kinda unfair they dont really stand a chance. I think if you got me, yourself and Snackface, in the same room, with Stacy and Newman, we’d show the world how snacking is really done. It like an Olympic sport. bwahaha. Have fun with the family sledding and stay warm!

    I couldn’t agree more in regards to Stacy’s – I KNOW I could eat the entire bag if I was hungry. The crunch and the salt…gah, too good.

    Have so much fun sledding :-) and Happy New Year!

    YELLOW apples!? Hmmm, I haven’t had those in forev but bet they’d make a GREAT “baked apple mess”!

    And I think you should send a letter to Stacy and let her know wassup. They should fix that serving size, pronto ;)

    ENJOY SOME HERMITS FOR ME!!!!!!

    I’m the same way when I buy a delicious product that for some reason, never seems to end. I get into the mission mode and make sure I finish it off no matter what. Sure you could always throw temptation away but.. what a waste of money and food!

    Have fun sledding with the sledding with the sister’s and Happy New Years!

    I can’t get over it. 6 chips?! REALLY (they should add this to an SNL “REALLY” segment)

    No lie, everytime I see Newman’s Hermits I think of you…haha enjoy your goods!

    And why have I never been given the opportunity to fly the magic that is Virgin? I need to go to there now please and thank you.

    Have a safe trip and a happy new year!

    Hey girl! Oh my, I am SO behind on your blog. I completely agree–Virgin is the BEST airline! Definitely my favorites of all the ones I’ve flown so far.
    Are those nuggets any good? Now that I’m back in the US, I can buy all these cool brands you feature! I’m going to try to cut down on meat in the new year…what are your favorite meatless products?

    Oh, and of course…
    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

    I do heart the Stacy’s pita chips…one word, Dangerous. Congrats on winning some fab foods! K and I had free VIA packets from Farbucks, but she used them before I could even try them. boo…
