Just last year, a date with the love was going out and eating way too much food, hitting a movie and indulging in a little bit of popcorn (I mean come on, who goes to the movie without popcorn? Yes, that was my reasoning even when I was too full to really eat it), and then go home and crash on the couch and watch some more stuff on the screen because I obviously did not get enough at the big screen. I would wake up feeling miserable and gross, and date night just did not appear to be very much fun when you are stuffing your face so much you feel ready for someone to just roll you down the street.
With getting healthy, we have decided to get more active with our date nights. We have done a lot of walking and hiking this year which I have absolutely loved. I never come home feeling ready to die from a food coma but instead feel exhausted (in a good way). On Friday, the husband and I decided to indulge in some sushi and also go bowling! There is a bowling alley right near our favorite sushi restaurants that does glow in the dark bowling after 8:00. They also have this awesome deal where you can bowl for 2 hours and it only costs 20 bucks. Not too shabby! About on par with going to the movies. We didn’t think we would be there for the whole entire 2 hours… but time just flew by! I ended up being victorious because
I am really good at distracting the husband with my boobs I rock at bowling. I even managed to get a couple shots of the date so it is like you guys were right there with us — cheering me on!
2 hours of bowling is definitely a good work out. Both the husband and I were a little damp with sweat by the time we were done. It made me feel a little less bad about gorging myself on sushi. Why does sushi have to be so delicious?!
Before we headed out, I actually took some full body shots of myself in the mirror. I haven’t done it before because I was so ashamed of my body and it was just a reflex to delete every single shot. Seriously. I couldn’t control myself! But this time, I was able to fight the urge and show you guys where I am currently at (and you can check out the outfit the husband picked out for me).
You guys are probably curious as to what the scale said too… and luckily it is some positive news despite the fact I ate out a lot last week and then drank way too much on Saturday… I was still able to go down a pound! Whoo! My current weight is 202.
So when you are thinking about what to do for date night, I recommend doing something active. Take a picnic lunch and go on a hike or swimming. Bowling is still a lot of fun, especially if you are competitive (just not to the point of being mean and obnoxious). Don’t do the every day dinner and a movie. That’s just way too much sitting and too many temptations. Sight seeing and window shopping are also great options and best of all, can be very inexpensive!
What do you guys do on your dates? Or when hanging out with friends?
