Hey fit-fam. I hope everyone got to enjoy an extended weekend for Labor Day!

First off, I cannot believe that it is already September! What is even more unbelievable is that we have been living in Las Vegas for 9-months now! I have to say that I do absolutely love it here.

You guys know that I love to hike, so we spent our Labor Day at Red Rocks. We chose to tackle a shorter trail than usual because there was a good bit of thunder rumbling around when we began, and we had already spotted rain in the distance on our drive in. We decided on the Calico Tanks Trail; it is ranked as a moderate trail, mainly because of its terrain. The rain never came and the overcast made for a perfect low 90’s temperature. It was a beautiful hike. I also have to plug in here that it is normally $15 per vehicle for a pass through Red Rock’s scenic drive, but a military I.D. gets you in for free!!

Earlier in the weekend we met up with a couple of friends for a day of Top Golf at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino on the strip. I had never been to TG before and had no idea what to expect, and was excited to see that it was basically just a gigantic driving range. I haven’t picked up a golf club since way back in my Hooters days, and even then let’s just say my par score wasn’t a factor when playing for charity. I did manage to score second to highest on the last game, but I attribute most of that to my girl Maddie that filled in for me during a bathroom break.


We hit pause for a lunch break and I had the sugar cane shrimp lettuce wraps. This was my first form of seafood other than Sashimi in 12-weeks; while the flavor was spot on, the texture of crustaceans has always been a bit of an issue for me. They held me over though throughout our golf game, until we headed to dinner at Las Vegas’s Tacos and beer.

Our friends are regulars at Tacos and Beer and swear by the street tacos, so it was a must try. I had the pineapple and black bean tacos, and they did not disappoint! To beat it all, they were only $3.50 each!

 

To finish off the weekend, we checked out The Tipsy Robot which is located in the Miracle Mile Shops of downtown. When you hear of a robot bartender, one gets a bit intrigued. Well, I’m here to tell you, it’s not that great. It is literally a robot arm that mixes a drink. There is no flare, no interaction, and no discount for a water. Your girl ordered a soda water with a lime and it was $7.00, redic! This is absolutely fine for the Las Vegas tourist that is willing to pay money for the “non-traditional Vegas experience,” but definitely not a spot for the local resident. Either way, we checked it off our things to see list, and now on to the next.

 
I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend and have an amazing week ahead!

Hi you all! 
Lets catch up and wrap up a long weekend…

Of course every morning begins the same way for me, with coffee ☕️☕️☕️

 
Mom and I spent a good portion of the day Friday prepping for my nieces baby shower to be held Saturday…

Of Course auntie had to get baby Foster his first pair of Chucks 💙

Friday afternoon was spent finishing up homework for the week, followed by client check-ins. Check-ins always make me so proud to be a coach!!! My happiness lies within seeing those that I strive to help, proud of themselves and  reaching goals! 

I love all of the feedback received from clients within their emails each week- whether it consist of weight loss, personal growth, or creativity within their cooking. I absolutely love what I do 🙏

 
Saturday morning we headed straight for the church to get ready for the baby shower. It turned out to be a great time and my niece was blessed with so many great gifts.

I managed to avoid the cake, chex mix, chips, pretzel sticks, kool-aid punch and cupcakes 🍰 I stopped on the way and scooped me up some mixed nuts, low-fat string cheese, fruit and a monster to tide me over.

 
Saturday evening and Sunday were spent lounging and client programming. 
I did manage to get in my routined cardio and air squat sessions throughout the weekend and macros remained on point…

I am obsessed with lettuce wraps at the moment. I get on food kicks where I literally eat the same meal everyday, all day and then I get bored and move on to the next. Two weeks ago it was chick-fil-a market fresh salads, and now its lettuce wraps🌱

 

Monday morning mom and I headed out to her favorite spot, Hobby Lobby, for their Labor Day sale. While I was just along for the ride, I was scoping out ideas for our new home come January 🏡 (insert total excitement😬)

Selfie Overload.. 💋💄

 

 

Our Labor Day afternoon was spent at the lake with family..

It was a wonderful weekend ☀️
