Vegas – Trying To Eat Clean In SIn City

Vegas Vacation

Let’s me start by saying I have on my jeans that were getting pretty tight and not at all comfy! Well they are now comfy again. I’m down about 13 lbs. It took me two weeks to recover from my Vegas trip.
For me it’s not your usual Vegas Vacation. I go to Vegas with my 9 y/o daughter every other month. We go to visit my 85 y/o dad. He’s widowed and lives in an assisted living facility. We still stay in a hotel on the strip and yes I still eat ,drink  and shop!  Those are my favorite things to do in Vegas. I’m not a gambler.
If I can eat at my dads  it would be great. It’s senior food. Small portions low-fat and salt. It’s actually quite good but he wants to get out and eat somewhere else. So in comes Mimi’s, Dave’s Famous & the Steak House. Luckily no buffet this time. He buffed out.
I did plan as well as I could. We usually stay in Vadara it’s a non casino hotel at the City Center. It’s supposed to be a time share but since the economy is bad they just made it a hotel. It has a fridge, stove top and microwave. So I buy breakfast to eat. The problem is the places my dad picks and the late night eating and drinking with my cousins.
I did great the first  two days. The hotel has a gym but I had work outs on my phone. I know I can’t eat healthy all the time but since this is a frequent trip for me I need to at least try to keep some of the days under control. The last night I went to Julian Serrano’s in The Aria. It’s a Spanish tapas place. It was definitely worth the wait! Adios:)
