I have decided to be very, very wealthy…or at least marry rich one day.  The resort was unbelievable!  I would, by any other means other than my aunt, would never, ever be able to stay at the Four Seasons, but let me tell you, it’s amazing!  I even worked out while on vacation-because there fitness center was perfect! Then I hit the pool and had breakfast pool side and read, while my mother got a foot massage.  I never wanted to leave.  I gambled a bit, ate a lot, slept very little and called my dad 9000 times to make sure he was okay without my mom.  It was precisely what the doctor ordered.  The trip was a birthday gift to my mom, but honestly it couldn’t have been any more timely for me-I so needed to run away for a little while.  I really do feel rested and ready to be a functional adult again!

Here are the pictures:

oh, right, the food…

Tuesday 5.19


Coffee and a granola bar at the airport


Apple Juice


Blue Chips and a Bagel Sandwich (chicken with red pepper and sweet potato puree)


Mid day snack at the Luxor: Meatball Sliders (I ate two)


Plate one at Buffet (Madalay Bay): Crab leggs, veal chop, steak, lobster ravioli


Plate Two: Scallops, paella, salad


Dessert: I didn’t eat all of these, I basically took a bite of each. Fruit tart, cheese cake, Tiramisu, chocolate/raspberry tart, lemon meringue, coconut cream pie, chocolate cake, carrot cake

Then I exploded.

Wednesday 5.20.09

In the morning I got up early and went running, then did some strength training.  Afterward I ate breakfast by the pool-ordered an egg white/vegetable fritata with multi grain bread (ate about half).  Didn’t have my camera.



Instead of lunch, I shared a blended with my mom


Plate one: shrimp (and lots of them, apparently) and a nicoisse salad


Plate Two: I couldn’t really do this plate justice, just picked…I think I was still full from the day before.
Lamb, mashed potatoes, ravioli, asparagus

Thursday 5.21.09

We headed home early in the morning


Banana at the airport


Water and a Peanut butter cookie Larabar


Once I was home it was time for a real meal: Vegetable soup and whole grain bread.

After that I went to bed and slept for 14 hours!

I can’t believe I ate all that, but hey at least I’m honest….
