Fun in the Vegas Sun

Hey hey hey 😀 How are ya???

I’m roasty (with SPF, por supuesto), toasty and happy from spending a glorious day out at the pool with my pilot, Ash and her pilot, and some other pilots 😀

This morning, my eyes snapped wide open at 7:30 and since I couldn’t go back to sleep, I blogged, then hit up the elliptical since I had a feeling Shaun T. wouldn’t be happening today 😉

40 breezy minutes with a SELF mag (did you guys see the RECIPES in the current issue?? Goat cheese stuffed bell peppers, anyone?) and then got us some bfast.

A breakfast bagel sandwich and OJ for the pilot, and a fruit cup and banana for me.


Bananner was glorious, fruit cup was nast. The pineapple had spent most of its life in that plastic cup.

More food, since the fruit failed me:


A Refresh tea from Bizzle and perfect oatmeal, which I mixed half a pack of the new Vega Sport vanilla protein into. (The company sent me a few packs to try… and I can already tell I’ll be sad when they’re gone!)

The protein, since it’s plant-based, made the oats GREEN!

I stirred in some water, half a pack of the mixed nuts that came with the oats and cinnamon…and ‘twas perfection.

After bfast(s) we met up with Ashley and her pilot to head to our cabana that the boys rented for the day.


It was LOVELY 😀

They had a TV, fridge, safe, drinkies, a separate lounging area, and a bucket of ice with cool cloths, and cucumbers for your eyes. Not gonna lie, I thought about eating them..they looked pretty tasty. I kid, I kid. But really….. 😉

I had a beautiful salad with veggies:


She brought “balsamic” on the side, which was really some kind of sesame vinaigrette but super delish.

And Ashley and I snacked on these bad johnnies whilst lounging:


Pilot in the sun:


Yeahhhhhhh 😀

And after a wedding that took place, the groom and his dad jumped into the pool in their tuxes! Everyone cheered 😀

I tried to snap a pic of the action:


We just got back to our room and are going to chill and get ready for tonight. I have no idea what we’re doing yet (the earliest reservations for Bobby Flay’s restaurant we’re at 10pm so we’re going TOMORROW!!! I can’t wait!), but I know it will be a blasty 😉

Have a fabulous night <3

    the afternoon in the cabana would have been AWESOME. nice to see you relaxing.

    thats hilarious about the groom and dad that jumped in the pool in their tuxes ha, they were probably sweating so bad it would have felt good.

  14. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on April 24, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    Goat cheese stuffed peppers sound to die for! I can’t wait to pick up a copy of SELF. 😀

  29. Kilee on April 25, 2010 at 10:36 am

    Looks like you guys are having tons of fun! Where did you end up going to dinner last night? I think that trying new restaurants is always one of my favorite parts of vacationing. Hope your Sunday is just as fun!

  30. LisaG on April 25, 2010 at 11:43 am

    Did you know they have another mix of those snacks named after Valdizzy? It’s a southern mix of pecans, etc. in them. Who would have thunk it?

    • LisaG on April 25, 2010 at 11:45 am

      Actually called Valdosta Pecans, w/cranberries, black pepper, and orange zest.

      • Fitnessista on April 25, 2010 at 2:55 pm

  34. Cassie @ A Very Busy Mind on April 25, 2010 at 3:16 pm

    Gina! I was out of town this weekend and am just catching up on your blog, but I just saw that the pilot has been in Vegas for the past three weeks – any chance he was at Tuscany Suites & Casino two weekends ago?! I was just in Vegas and I could have sworn I saw him (I actually almost said “Pilot!” to see if he would look but figured it was such a long shot).

    SO WEIRD if I actually saw him!

    • Fitnessista on April 25, 2010 at 3:41 pm

      YES!!!! that was my husband! i just asked him and he said some of the guys were staying there, so he walked back with them and got a cab from there back to base. so crazy!!!

  35. Salah@myhealthiestlifestyle on April 27, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    hahaha Thats so funny that those guys jumped into the pooL! lol oh goodness
