first vacation in 7 years starts tomorrow!

tomorrow i leave for LAS VEGAS!! as i haven't been on a vacation in 7 years (!!!!), i'm very excited. especially excited to leave the dark, cold, rainy dreariness of Chicago for some sun and warmth.
but i'm also nervous!! very nervous about staying on track with my healthy eating and exercise! and i'm very scared of gaining while i'm on the trip. i know that i should allow myself to "let go" just a little during these 5 days, but i can't help but worry about food options and gaining weight!! luckily, i'm going with my mom, who watches what she eats and exercises too. i've done some pre-planning by looking up healthy/vegetarian restaurants in the Sin City, and my mom and i plan on swimming and walking a LOT. so, fingers crossed! all in all, i just want to have fun and relax rather than fretting over calories every meal, so i'm planning to watch what goes in my mouth carefully and thoughtfully, and avoid alcohol as much as i possibly can!! :)
since i'll be without internet, i won't be able to track on SP while i'm away (also somewhat nerve-wracking), but i think i can do pretty well with a pen and paper at this point! wish me luck!
