What Happens in Vegas…

Goes on the blog…. Well, at least some of it. I was in Las Vegas over the weekend to celebrate a friend’s birthday. For some, going on vacation can lead to a lot of food indulgences since there’s a break in the usual routine and a lot of dining out. You can still enjoy your holiday without worrying about coming home a size larger if you follow some simple rules.

One of the things that I do no matter where I am is get some exercise. The place where we stayed had a fantastic swimming pool, so I swam for an hour every morning.

Another tip: keep breakfasts and lunches reasonable. These meals are a bit easier to control from a calorie standpoint. And since dinners out are typically much bigger events (particularly when there’s a celebration involved), you’ll want to avoid having huge breakfasts and lunches. I usually keep breakfast simple… in this case oatmeal and fruit. (Yes, it looks like a lot of food here, but there were 4 of us.)

For lunch, I chose a large bowl of minestrone soup. Not a great pic, but it was really delicious! We ordered up a veggie crudite and cheese plate for a late afternoon snack… so this way we didn’t head into dinner starving. We had dinner one night at SW steakhouse at The Wynn. I did not take a picture (it wasn’t pretty!!) However it was a great meal and hopefully all the extra calories were burned off while dancing into the wee hours. Okay… I’d better stop writing about my Vegas trip here :)

    I love Vegas! One of my favourite restaurants is Olives in Bellagio – I often stay at the Wynne & will either pay a little extra for a nice Irish Steal Cut Oatmeal from there, or more often enjoy a truly “perfect oatmeal” (fruit, nuts, & a *touch* of brown sugar) with a tea for under $5 (:
