Surviving long weekend in Vegas

Wearing green and drinking green beer on St. Patty's Day at Ellis Island Casino.

We got home from Las Vegas today. We flew out on Wednesday night. We had a great time and with our friends Jen and Dave, too.
When I go on vacation or out of town or whatever I usually know that the healthy eating goes out the window.
Sometimes I can keep the outrageous caloric intake to a minimum. Other times the options are limited or I just don’t want to.
This long weekend I didn’t want to. I wanted to eat crap and delicious food and drinks lots of beer and some fuu-fuu drinks as well with a little wine in there, too.
Hanging out at Ellis Island Casino makes it easy to eat and drinks lots with their Dollar Madness Menu: $1 beers (larger beers were a whole 2 bucks); $1 hot dogs and 5 wings for a buck.
And hanging out watching basketball for hours is, of course, better with beer and bar food!
The couple of times hanging out at the pool I was either having beer or yummy fuu-fuu high calorie frozen drinks.
Having dinner and endless wine at Battista’s Hole in the Wall is a must visit every time we go to Vegas. The food is amazing, not too expensive, the coffee they serve is amazing, the endless house wine … The four of us enjoyed our meal there last night.
I was so proud of myself for making it to the gym three mornings over the long weekend. I did roughly 45 minutes to an hour each day. Cardio, weights, abs … That stair climber thing was an ass kicker. The sweat was pouring. It was great!
Most of the times when I pack gym clothes when on vacation the clothes never make it out of the suitcase. Not sure what my motivation was this time around but it was there and I ran with it.
