Just got back from a trip to see UFC 222 in Vegas. For a little background, my wife and I have been going to a couple of fights a year in Vegas for the last 3 years or so. The last ones we went to were the 2 fights during International Fight Week in July 2017. The big change for me has been with what I haven’t done since the last trip. I guess I had a sort of midlife crisis last year, and I have been taking my health and my fitness a lot more seriously over the last six months or so, and have really dialed in on my diet and training. That means that I have been eating very clean, rarely taking diet “cheat days”. I also have not drank any alcohol since my last Vegas trip. My routine has been working, taking care of the kids, and BJJ training 4 nights a week. This trip was intended to be a well deserved rest from my routine, and the plan was to eat well and drink up before getting back to the grind. We booked the first 2 nights at New York New York on a myvegas comp. We booked the second two nights at Bellagio, since in our many trips to Vegas we had never stayed there. We just booked the cheapest run of the house room, but a few weeks before the trip they offered me a $70 a night upgrade to a Salone Suite, so we tried that. We also each used a full array of myvegas rewards to use on this tripped. In addition to the fight, we planned on seeing the show “Baz” on Thursday night, and checking out NGHTMRE at Hakkassan on Friday night. I also made reservations at Lago, Hells Kitchen, and Tender.
