Our last day in Vegas was here. I did not want to leave. I was starting to get into a Vegas routine. After devouring my coffee and a tray of fruit, I woke Jeremy up. I wasn’t going to let him sleep in this time. We only had six hours to enjoy the day before heading back to the airport. His parents didn’t leave until today.
We left the Mandalay and headed a couple miles down the strip. I bought some T-shirts and gifts for friends. The weather was beautiful and we decided to keep walking to soak in the heat.
We stopped at the Venetian for iced coffee. I had one tbsp of half and half in mine. The Venetian is beautiful. It reminded me of Italy. Luckily for my parents, they are staying there this weekend. They will love it. They met and lived in Italy when they were younger.
On our way back, Jeremy and I stopped at the Mirage to see their animal exhibits. I wasn’t too interested in that, because I am not a huge fan of animal confinement. I was excited to see the Kardashian Khaos store! Jeremy has way too much patience with me.
Our last stop was the Miracle Mile Mall. I’d love to live in Vegas. There is so much to do and no excuses to be bored. I enjoyed watching all the talented people on the streets and the not-so-talented people (old man dressed in a diaper pretending to be cupid). After we were all shopped out, we headed back to the hotel for our final meal and to say our goodbyes to Jeremy’s parents.
I bet you can guess where my last meal was…yup…another buffet! My sixth to be exact! This was going to be my final meal of the day. It would be midnight by the time we landed in Atlanta.
On my plate I had : fruit, kidney beans, shrimp, cucumber, romaine, crab, three bean salad, croutons, a potato and Italian on the side.
The salad was delicious and refreshing. After our long walk on the strip, I felt better about going up for another! After dinner, we headed to the airport to go back to Atlanta. We had an amazing time and I can’t wait to go back! I don’t have anything negative to say about Vegas! Other than the amount I spent on coffee. Good thing I won it back with my new gambling addiction.
Vacations can be scary to some health nuts, but I made the best of it. I ate healthy and still enjoyed my sweets. I made sure to find time to exercise and stay active. Take advantage of your hotel’s fitness center and pool Get out and walk new places instead of taking a taxi. Vacations are apart of your lifestyle and can easily fit into a healthy one. It’s all about choices. Don’t deprive yourself on vacation, but don’t over do it either. Don’t have a binge splurge. Have a moderation splurge. Find your happy medium and go with it!
