Week 37 - Vegas Vacation - And a gain (pics)

Sunday, March 11, 2012

I will start this blog without mentioning the gain. I will save that for later. It was my birthday this week so a couple of friends and I went to Vegas for a few days.

We had a lot of fun, but of course, it's Vegas so there was a lot of eating out and drinking.

And more drinking

I really wanted to stay at the Cosmopolitan because it's a newer hotel and the pictures are really nice, but also because all the rooms have refrigerators and microwaves in them. That would have worked out great for me because we could have saved money on food but I could also have stayed within my calorie range. As we got closer, we decided to go cheaper so we stayed at the Excalibur. That also meant we paid more for food, so I guess it really wasn't cheaper in the end. So I did not bother to count calories. I just let loose. But I still wore my Bodybugg and burned lots of calories each night dancing.

In the picture above, I probably didn't burn as many calories as I did the following night, but there are not pictures of us at the club the next night, so this is the only one I have of us dancing.

The first night we were there, we were celebrating my friend graduating from CalBaptist University so we let her choose everything we did. She chose for us to go to The Phantom of the Opera (BORING!) and then wanted to go to a club. So after the show, we went to Voodoo Lounge at the top of the Rio.

I don't know why I look so scared in the picture. I think I was more annoyed because the lady had to take like 5 pictures so I kept having to scoot back and forth. This lounge was really nice. In the picture, we are in the inside drinking and outside on the balcony is dancing. We were up on the 52nd flood and when you are outside, you can see the whole strip and even further into the distance. It was really beautiful, but unfortunately I didn't get any pictures.

The first day, we were supposed to do this CSI Experience thing at the MGM, but we got there late, so we ended up doing it on my birthday.

It was cool, but not as exciting or fun as I thought it would be. So I don't really recommend it. But I liked being able to take a picture in the vest. :)

After the CSI thing, we went back to the hotel to get ready for our evening. At the Excalbur, they have a show called Thunder from Down Under. In the lobby, a couple of the guys and girls were taking pictures with the guests.

The guy in the red vest was really freaking gorgeous. And he was a really nice guy too. Or at least played the part really well. When he was positioning me for the photo, he felt my arm and felt my Bodybugg. I was actually surprised to find out he knew exactly what it was cause he asked if I was wearing the bodybugg.

That night we celebrated my birthday and I got to choose what we did. I chose a comedy hypnosis show

And karaoke, which surprising ended at 1:30am? It's Vegas, why would karaoke close so damn early?? I was disappointed because I only go to sing once.

Since it closed so early, we decided to hit up a club downstairs called The Rock House. On our way there, we saw a guy that was at the Karaoke Club and my drunk friend Vivien told him he should meet us at the Rock House. Later, while on the dance floor, we saw him so my friend told him it was my birthday so he gave me a lap dance. He was really cute, but a little on the older side. I ended up meeting some guy named Ray and we danced for hours until about 4:30am when my not drunk came over and told me she wanted to leave.

Unfortunately, I only got about 3 hours sleep that morning before check out, but I still had a blast. On our way back, we stopped at the diner called Peggy Sue's 50's Diner or something like that. I wasn't very impressed by it.

That was about the extent of our vacation. I did leave some things out just because they really weren't all that exciting or just too drama filled, but I did have fun. Apparently a little too much fun because when I stepped on the scale, I found that I gained 6 lbs. I don't know if it was all real or not, but we will see over the next couple of weeks. I really don't think I am going to make my goal of 12 lbs this month, but I just hope I will lose at the extra weight I gained.

    Sounds like you had a wild time and I can promise you that your memoires of this time will last a lot longer than the memory of 6 pounds. You'll lose them again and I'm glad you had loads of fun gaining them emoticon
