Back from Vegas!

How was it?

Let's list it:

...and Coke
...........oh and complimentary cheap Champagne

not to mention:

buffet wristband
Tournament of Kings
midnight missions to find coffee that lead to Krispy Kream
getting a free dessert because the restaurant "forgot" to put in an order.. for pizza
Starbucks after Starbucks after Starbucks in every corner of every casino we passed..

What does all this mean?

That Elina had fun. LOL

It also means that I ate a ton and didn't notice it until I listed it just now because none of it was planned.. most of it was eaten while on the run and on the move... and I just plain didn't want to think about it.

But believe me when I tell you that besides all that crazyness my friend and I must have walked atleast 1-2 miles every night... our last night we walked half the strip.. and obviously walked it twice to get back...

My feet hurt like crazy. I think it was more than worth it.

This week was not the best I ever had when it comes to food and weight management, but I do believe it helped me actually have time to relax. Actually interact with real people (don't get me wrong I love having internet friendship, messages and etc but one does actually need real human interaction every once in a while). I was able to let loose a little bit, laugh, cheer and I admit right now my voice is hoarse.. so that should mean something right.

I feel good. If it ended up costing me a few extra pounds so be it. I have to remember that wellness is more than just "calories in vs. calories out" and I don't regret a single thing.

I'll be going back to the field on Monday so I'll be doing my Weigh In tomorrow I think... check the damage. LOL

I leave you with proof of how much fun on the strip I was having. LOL

Have a great weekend everyone!

Yay! I'm glad you had a fun time, Elina. It was fantastic hanging out with you and Maria. I swear next time you visit I'll have a car so I can hang out with you more. This time was just bad timing.

lol. Thanks Tricia.

I really do think hanging out with someone who knows what they're doing really contributed to it all. Maybe next time I'll finally get to go to Krave.. it just didn't happen this time. Maria loved it too. Maybe it was the drinks but she kept gushing and thanking me for thinking of contacting you that first night.. of course she tried to kill me the following morning but... LOL.

"Thanks for everything Tricia!" is my point here. lol
