    Okay, next time I go to Austin I am going there for the guacamole flight – genius!! I kinda fell off the wagon in Austin – I didn’t exercise one bit. I am going to Virginia in July and plan on changing my approach – definitely exercising (hopefully with my brother!), eating in moderation and limiting the alcohol – proud to say I haven’t had a glass of wine since Sunday!! 😀

      I know! Why haven’t more restaurants thought of this before?!?!

      Are you a swimmer? If you are, check out this place the next time you go to Austin: http://www.110pounds.com/?p=31789. It’s a great way to get some exercise in. 🙂

      It’s a great idea, huh? 🙂

    The next time you are in Austin, let me know! We need to meet up! The first time I read “Guacamole Flight” I thought it said FIGHT. haha. I was like, I don’t want to get into a guac fight! lol. The hubs and I will have to try that place out next time we are up there!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Most definitely! I will contact you. Last time I tried to meet up with some other bloggers & just couldn’t coordinate a good time. I was disappointed I couldn’t meet them.

      You must try that restaurant! Enjoy!

    Great tips. And love the guacamole flight–I need to find a place around here that does something like that! 🙂

      I wish there was somewhere local that had it. 🙂

    I would be in big trouble with a guacamole flight! Although here’s a tip – a lot of times (if I’m in a good frame of mind) I’ll ask for jicama or cucumbers instead of chips – I don’t care if I have to pay extra for them – this way I’m only being half as bad 🙂

    I find vacations to be extremely challenging – I don’t think I’ve ever gone away without coming home with a gain. My husband and I are definitely “foodies” so especially while we’re on vacation we are looking for good restaurants in the area. Having a good breakfast and a light lunch and packing snacks definitely helps. If it’s just the two of us I always get in a nice long walk by myself. If my son (11 years old) is with us chances are it’s a theme park or sightseeing vacation so we’re walking a ton anyway! We just spent a few days in Washington, DC and we were exhausted when we got home.

    Doing a trip the last week of July in Nashville just the two of us – hoping to hold my own…

      GREAT tip! I never think of that. Raw peppers or carrots or cucumber are great with guacamole.

      Michael and I are like you and your hubby. We want to try the local food in the city we’re visiting. It’s so much fun!
