So the smoke... OMG It was hideous. I didn't notice it in some of the new hotels on the strip with higher ceilings but this hotel was old and I'm sure the ventilation system wasn't the best. FYI: I hear they are changing hotel next year thank goodness. Most of Friday was spent sightseeing on the Strip. Must see: the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, it's absolutely beautiful, loved all the great window shopping (too rich for my pocketbook but fun to look) but the minute I spent anytime in our hotel I felt ill... burning eyes, burning chest, nauseous. When I woke up Saturday AM I had a migraine from hell, throughout the day I took 6 Tylenol and 1/2 a Vicodin and nothing touched it. I made it through the day's events but I passed on Saturday's evening festivities and crashed in my room (sorry I didn't get to say goodbye.) Thank goodness I always make sure my purse or carry-on bag has a stash of protein to tide me over till I can eat. It came in handy that night.
Snack-sized Ziploc with Almonds & Peanuts, sometimes I bring Kay's Natural Cereal Mini Bags (sadly I was all out), a few SF Hard Candies, Just the Cheese Crunchy Cheese - Grilled Cheese flavor, a couple of protein bars - Oh Yeah Peanut Butter & Caramel Bar and a Supreme Caramel Nut Chocolate Bar, my CLICK Blender Bottle Shaker with 2 Packets of Vanilla Latte CLICK Espresso Protein and my current addiction: Altoids Smalls Sugar Free Cinnamon Mints.
I am spending today breathing in as much fresh air as possible to counteract the nastiness that filled my body this weekend. I just made a yummy, protein packed bento box lunch. I'll snap a pic of it in a bit and post it. It's a gorgeous day. Hope you are having a nice one.
