Trainer in Vegas

July 3, 2015

I recently got back from my own Vegas vacation and I was blown away by how much I walked.  My Fitbit was not cooperating, so unfortunately none of it "counted" ;) but my boyfriend wore his Jawbone and we averaged about 30 THOUSAND steps per day!  Holy smokes, no wonder my feet hurt!  I literally broke two pairs of shoes.  




I also found out that, in life after 30, I have NO SHAME in wearing my (very fashionable) sneakers while we commuted down the Strip.




 (Don't worry, I took them off when we arrived at our show.)  I know I must have gotten a few snickers and stares, but you know what?  My feet felt amazing!  All the walking was worth it because I made a golden little discovery in Vegas - a gem of a place called Yogurtland!  Shut the front door, this place is amazing.  If you've never experienced such a thing, imagine the Old Country Buffet of fro-yo.  Or the chance to jump over the counter at DQ and DIY.  That's right - a wall of at least 10 flavors, from chocolate brownie batter to strawberry to New York Cheesecake, then every topping you could ever dream of, and some that I didn't even recognize (apparently "Boba" are what they put into bubble tea!).  I found a favorite in Cookies & Cream mixed with all of my favorites - M&Ms, brownie pieces, strawberries, and chocolate chips.  It was heaven in a cup and I managed to eat there three times that week!  




I was so smitten with Yogurtland that I, of course, searched for one here in Michigan when I returned, but to no avail.  I did, however, find it's Michigan rival - Menchie's!  And it's close to my house.  So here was my creation.  




Don't ask about the gummy shark - it was just one of those had to do it type things.  So suffice it to say, Menchie's won't be a daily occasion, but it sure sounds good right now!
