Vegas Move!

Sharing is caring!

It has been so long since I’ve posted anything!! This is just insane! Life has been crazy for us. Scott was offered an opportunity through work to pilot a program in a different state, so we moved! We had about a week’s notice to pick up everything and move to Las Vegas! For the past 3 weeks we’ve lived in a hotel while we waited for our apartment to be ready. Now we are finally unpacked (for the most part), have internet set up, and access to a full kitchen so life can finally get back to normal!

You have no idea how nice it is to have space, an actual computer, and an oven/stove. Honestly, I thought it’d be a piece of cake to keep healthy while living in a hotel but it was harder than I expected. We were fortunate to be in an extended stay with a fridge and a two-burner stove top, but we were so crammed which made it really hard to cook anything. How am I expected to chop veggies when I have zero counter space?! It was a frustrating time for sure.

We opted for a 2 queen room so that all four of us wouldn’t have to squeeze into one bed. I imagined the kids on one and Scott & I on the other. The reality? Scott in one, me in between both kids on the other… The kids were in a new environment and wanted constant cuddles to help them through it. Anytime I tried to sneak out to the other bed they immediately woke up. Seven o’clock bedtimes were impossible to enforce. And waking up early to get a work out in? never happened. I had good intentions though…

Because I didn’t weight train at all, I did my best to pick “active” activities for me and the kids throughout the day (like the one pictured above). I suppose I could’ve done some hotel room workouts during this time, but I didn’t. I’m resuming my normal workout schedule now and am back to our normal family meals =)

I’m excited to share some healthy vacation style posts over the next couple weeks. Things like what meals you can make in a hotel room, easy snacks, road trip snacks, hotel room essentials, fun outdoor activities for families, fun ways to beat the heat, etc. so stay tuned!
