It was really nice sleeping in. I woke up around 8a and just enjoyed Not hearing the sound of my boys fighting. lol. It is amazing how quiet things are without them around. I almost forgot what it’s like. The beds weren’t too bad at the hotel. It’s hard for me to ever be comfortable in a bed that isn’t mine. We have a Temperpedic and it is worth every single penny!
Our room didn’t have a fridge – besides the mini bar, so I had a Luna bar for breakfast. Ben had a Cliff bar and he decided that he’d come with me to the gym :-) After doing a 2min plank (just me), we strapped on our running shoes and walked through the hotel to get to their Cardio room. I went over to the treadmills and he headed for the ellipticals. I love hotel gyms because they have the Best equipment. These treadmills had a TV, attachments for iPhone, and a fan. I chose to do a 5K program. Did pretty good and stuck to a 7mph pace.
—————————– Turbo Fire Day 4 ———————————
I decided to do my Turbo Fire workout when I got back from the hotel gym. I wanted to get my workouts out of the way so we could do whatever we needed to for the rest of the day.
Today was Fire 30 and Stretch 10. I still did the New to Class option. I definitely did better. This workout is so much fun.
Meal 2 was skipped. By the time I was done working out and showering, it was time for lunch. We headed to my favorite place: Bahama Breeze. I use to work at one when I lived in Florida and Vegas is the closest place for me to get their amazing food. I Always go there for lunch when I go to Vegas. Their menu has changed a little since I’ve worked there but their atmosphere and quality is still great. It always brings back happy memories of my good friends and good times I had when I go there.
I decided to try out one of their new salads : Grilled Chicken and Tropical Fruit on Greens. This was soooooo good! In hindsight I should have asked for the dressing on the side. It was Raspberry Vinaigrette but they had more on there than I would have liked. I am not big on salad dressing and I only ever use a very tiny bit. The salad was still amazing though. It had pineapple, grapes, oranges, and strawberries. I ate every last bit :-) I did have one drink: their Pineapple Coconut Martini. It’s one they’ve added since I’ve worked there and it’s my favorite. Usually I’d just have them keep them coming, but I stuck with just one and lots of water :-) Ben got his usual Jerk Shrimp appetizer. I was very proud that he didn’t order an entree too. He’s working on getting use to smaller portions.
After lunch we toured the Las Vegas Tower. For those that don’t know, Ben is an air traffic controller. He wanted to see if the Vegas tower was some place he would want to transfer to after SFO. It is very interesting listening to them talk about the differences between the towers. It looks like that they are already fully staffed so it will be a while before Ben can go there. They were all very friendly and we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
We headed over to the Cosmo for Ben to talk with a few people. He was very happy to have found a store that was carrying a shoe he really wanted. The Cosmo is just so hip and fun. lol. I loved the Chandelier hanging from the ceiling and going all the way down. It was just so pretty :-)
We walked across the street to the Miracle Mile Mall. We walked the whole thing :-) Now I remember that we also walked it the day before… our first day in Vegas. lol. I had seen some shoes I wanted the day before. I went back in and got them today. Well, not exactly the ones I wanted. The shoes I wanted were sold out in my size. They had my size in different style so I went for one that wasn’t as crazy as some of my other choices.
These shoes are super comfy!! I thought that they’d be stiff, but not at all. I took off my boots and wore these around and my feet felt great :-)
Meal 4 was Almond Coconut Kind Bar. We went back to our hotel and relaxed for a little bit. We were a little worn out so we decided to stay at our hotel for dinner. We didn’t want to do a fancy restaurant again so we decided to do California Pizza Kitchen. I ordered a thin crust Spinach Artichoke pizza made with whole wheat flour. Again, Ben liked it better than his pizza :-) I only had two slices. I heard about the Kardashian Khaos Store inside the Mirage so we went to check it out after dinner.
I’m not a huge fan of the Kardashians, but I am a Huge fan of Stila Cosmetics. I was surprised to see that they did an exclusive makeup collection for the Kardashian Khaos store. There were two sets and I had the hardest time deciding which to get. I really wanted both but I decided to exercise some will power. I chose the Bronze set since I use more of those colors on a daily basis than the ones inside the Night time set.
We went back to our hotel room and got ready to head over to our friends’ house out in Henderson. We don’t get to see them much so we wanted to make sure we stopped by for a bit. We always have a great time with them. Malissa and I will be doing the Disney Half Marathon in September together :-) We stayed for a couple hours then headed back to the hotel. Ben had to be up early the next day.
