Vegas Roundup

Here are some of the meals and workouts I had while in Vegas...

Friday night...started with a nice salad at D.Vino at Monte Carlo, then went way off the strip for great sushi at Osaka. Then went to "The Bank" at
Bellagio where of all people, James Caan was there celebrating his birthday. Saturday morning, 30 minute walk to get some sunshine...had a veggie burrito and some veggie sandwiches at lunch...always working to get more vegetables.

I spent all day at a seminar and then hit the gym for V-grip pulldowns, rows, curls, and lying dumbbell triceps extensions...just a fun workout...followed by another short walk on the Vegas strip.

Unfortunately, dinner turned into a bad experience at Sensi restaurant at Bellagio, so no good food to report about...but after I hung out with HUGE group of fitness experts at a nightclub called Haze where we got to see Snoop Dogg perform a couple of tracks...pretty's a rest day from workouts and then I hit deadlifts tomorrow.

BTW, I'm eating an apple and raw vegetables in the can always find healthy food in don't use travel as an excuse to eat junk.

And here's a little article I posted on the Turbulence Training Facebook Fanpage...

"Be Loud and Proud"

Without a doubt, one of the most difficult things about losing fat is eating in social situations. The peer-pressure (from both the ignorant and immature) is the toughest test of your commitment.

If you want to succeed, you have to lay the ground rules. There is no room for debate. You are either in or you are out.

And you might just surprise some folks when you show them that life can go on if you don't eat chicken wings with them.

Be loud and proud of what you are doing. There are more folks secretly wishing someone will take charge and be a healthy role model for them.

It might not happen overnight, but if you continue to lead by healthy example – without preaching or being condescending – you can build an entourage of social support and people who want to be healthy like you.

This will build powerful relationships that will take your health to the next level.

Stay strong,
