Day 9....no exercise, hot date instead...

Well, I didn't have my gym date today. But I did go on a date with my husband. We went out and I had some mexican and then we went to the movies and had some popcorn. we haven't been out together in .....months. I don't regret a thing. Had a great time. Tomorrow was supposed to be my monthly weigh in. I will probably retain like a mofo tonight so will just post my weight from this morning 201 lbs. That's right folks. 2 lbs away from onederland.
61 lbs down in 6 months. Not bad. my halfway is 197 and will be taking a full body pic then.

We went and saw 2012. I loved it...It had john cusack whom I wll always love from say anything and better off dead. I have no idea what his name was in the movie but in my head I was all "Lane, watch out..." and "Lane run!"
It had cute kids, russian mobsters....slimy politicians, supereruptions, earthquakes, tidal waves, volcanoes, and a great love story. I don't need deep, not when a movie is this wide and shallow. it even has woody harrelson, and who doesn't like woody harrelson.

I laughed, I cried...I covered my face in a few particularly gruesome places. loved it.
Had a great night. Back otk tomorrow as always.
Hope everyone had an excellent night. I need to wash this makeup hoo off my face and get in jammies and paint some clothes pins. I have reindeer ornaments to make for my girlscouts.
Talk at you all later.
hugs,
Chris

i'm so glad you enjoyed such a special evening! Sometimes you just gotta do that! These dates are incentive ;-) I'm so happy for you.

Chris, my wife and I thought the same thing. I am like you, who needs deep when you have wide and shallow. :-)

Crazy how going to a movie becomes so special, isn't it? Remember when they were a regular thing? I'm embarrassed to say I haven't even heard of 2012. Glad you made time for something with just your man - I need to do more of that.

You know, date night is something my BF and I do not do enough. You've just given me a great idea. Thanks!

Melissa said...

Sounds like fun. I wish hubby and I did date night more often

Hi Chris!

Congrats on date night with your husband. We do it on Friday night and I look forward to it all week long. We don't go to the movie theater any more (too expensive and the people have just become so rude, not to mention cell phone distractions), but I will make sure to rent 2012 when it is available on NetFlix.

Thanks for the tip. Love your blog~

Christine said...

Oh! I love John Cusak! I need to go see that!!! (I will probably have to wait for Netflix too but not for the reasons above. We just never get a sitter.)

And wow, woman. 61 lbs in six months kicks butt. And you are nearly HALF WAY. Nice. Big congrats. You are rocking this weight loss thing. ♥

In the bad ol' days, a night out like that would have thrown me right off the rails. I'd have convinced myself that I suck, and then the next week would have been going about proving just how much I suck.

Good for you for having the inner strength to jump right back on plan and not treat it like a setback but as just something that comes up.

Hooray for date night!

Not to sound like a dork, but what does "OTK" mean?!?

Sandra said...

Date nights are fun! Glad you took the time to go on one and enjoyed yourself to boot. I want to see that movie as well! Soon....
