I’m Going to Vegas! My Health and Wellness “Do” List

7 May
Health and Wellness in Las Vegas

I'll be staying healthy at the Bellagio.

As many of you know, I’m not into “do not’s”. They just don’t work for me – I am SUCH a rebel. My whole wannabe health and wellness philosophy is about the Power of More – more vegetables, more movement, more water.  I’m on a really good streak right now – recovering from my hurt back, getting up to speed at the gym, and even sharpening my knife in the kitchen. So I want to continue this positive momentum – even in Sin City – while enjoying a lovely vacation.

So here’s what I WILL DO on my vacation:

  1. I will eat dessert – after I eat my vegetables.
  2. I will move – walk, gym, swim – I think this will be fairly easy actually.
  3. I will enjoy a warm piece of sourdough bread – with butter – along with my salad.
  4. I will use the stairs at least once to get to my room (God help me if I’m on the 20th floor).
  5. I will drink water (yes – I even have my water bottle packed – can you believe it?).
  6. I will rest my body and mind with naps, reading, and massage.
  7. I will wear sunscreen and a hat.
  8. I will do yoga with my BF+ without giggling (maybe…).
  9. I will eat regularly so that I’m never starved (got my bars packed).
  10. I will smile and laugh often.

I’ll be disconnecting – yep – not taking the computer. But don’t be surprised if I tweet a pic or two.

But in the meantime, here’s some toe-tapping tunes to set the mood…. Enjoy!

    Here through the fitblog paper. I love that you phrased everything in terms of what you WILL do instead of what you won’t do. Enjoy your time!

      Aw – so nice to meet you! Yes, restrictions sort of don’t work for me – I’m all about more! More water, more veggies, more movement 😉

    I always lose weight in Vegas because of the millions of steps I take trying to get anywhere! Have a blast!

      Seriously – I think I figured that one round trip from my room to the pool was a mile – yowza!

    […] night, great food, and a Cirque show (kÀ). It was a vacation, and I did really well focusing on my list of what I WOULD DO rather than what I wouldn’t do. I drank a ton of water, walked gazillions […]
