We had a lovely time in Vegas, and yes, health and wellness is possible in Sin City! We stayed at the Bellagio and had a fountain view room (highly recommend) and could watch the fountain show from the comfort of the cushy chairs while listening to the music on the TV. (My favorite was ONE from Chorus Line – my goodness – 30 years later and I still know all the words!) We spent an afternoon at the spa and that was GLORIOUS! Seriously, this place was magazine-picture-perfect gorgeous, with floor to ceiling glass tile, hundreds of single flower arrangements, beautiful water features, cozy robes, and eucalyptus steam rooms. There was even a co-ed serenity room so the BF+ and I could do some stretching (quiet giggling allowed).
Overall, we enjoyed lots of down time, one dress up 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 of miles (maybe a slight exaggeration), slept a lot, read a couple of books, didn’t check my email, and ate my veggies. The only thing that didn’t happen was using the stairs once to get to my room (15th floor). I’m sorry to say the stairwells were not accessible, but I did use the stair climber at their amazing gym. It wasn’t nearly as satisfying though – I was SO hoping hoping to climb real stairs – ha! My only consolation was that BF+ humored me with a couple of bosu exercises 😉
The view from the room – highly recommend getting the fountain view!
I actually ate watermelon for dessert at the buffet – it was quite satisfying! Funny, buffets just don’t make a lot of sense for me now, but it seemed like sort of a Vegas obligation.
Room service breakfast every morning – uh – their granola had cashews!
Eating my veggies.
Then my dessert. This was the best creme brulee I’ve ever had in my life – and the melt-in-your mouth cookies were unbelievable!
Plenty of sunscreen (I’m so happy I “pre-tanned” and love my pretty toes), and I discovered that drinking water is refreshing!
It was a great trip without the laptop – maybe next time I’ll take a real camera and ask BF+ to take a pic of the LBD – ha! Next trip? Tahoe with the bikes – eeek!
