Six weeks ago, when the Weight Loss Challenge first began, Chuck promised me that if I won FIRST place, we would go on a Saturday celebration date with our first stop being my favorite restaurant - Mitchell's Fish Market!!!! From the word go. . .I was bound and determined to win! Mitchell's Fish Market is quite the treat and I couldn't wait to indulge!
Saturday started with my morning cardio! Hey, just because this challenge is over, doesn't mean I throw all caution to the wind!!! I still have 10 more lbs left to lose to reach my goal. . .plus, I just feel 10 times better starting my day off with a little bit of heart healthy cardio! After showering and the like, I headed to the dentist for my 6 month cleaning! I really dislike the dentist. . .something about someone elses hands in my mouth for 40 minutes. So, in some ways. . .the day was a bit bitter sweet!!! After dropping the boys off at my parent's house and shining up the teeth, I headed home to get ready for the date!!!!
I was excited to get all gussied up for my date! I slipped in to my new American Eagle denim mini and a pair of grey tights, and black slouch boots! I topped it off with a black cami and a grey sweater!
Our dinner reservation was at 4:00 pm - early enough for the lunch menu, but late enough for the dinner menu, which worked out well. . .lunch for me. . .dinner for Chuck!!!
|Waiting for our appetizer!|
After sharing the shrimp, and helping Chuck with his bowl of Lobster Bisque. . .I was ready to order!
Delivered to my table was the best cedar planked salmon, roasted asparagus, mushrooms, onions, and tomatoes with a dollop of goat cheese! I also helped Chuck with a Sam Adams beer battered scallop! So tender and juicy! I have to admit that my eyes were bigger than my belly. . .Chuck had to finish my salmon for me!!!
After leaving the Fish Market, we headed out to do a little bit of shopping! I was able to score a new pair of running shoes that I am SO excited to try once the weather warms up a bit:
Next up. . .an evening sweet treat. . .to share!!!!
Chuck and I split a Grumpy Cake!!!! It was a chocolate cupcake topped with vanilla buttercream pillows and dipped in a chocolate gnoche! Oh MY Gosh!!!! It was perfect for splitting with my love!!! I think we devoured the thing in like 5 seconds. . .it was that good!!!
We spent the rest of the evening making a purchase in the Apple Store. You know, anything you get in the Apple Store has to be good. . .that is. . .if you're a Mac person!!!! Let's just say it has the letter "i" and "mac" in it!! Enough said!!!
It was a great evening of celebration spent with the best husband in the entire world!!!! What amazed me the most was that I was sooooo excited to eat everything that I couldn't and wouldn't eat during the Weight loss challenge. . .turns out, I couldn't get away from making healthy choices and not stuffing myself during my celebration evening! I had plans to devour some fro yo too, but I just wasn't hungry! Go me! Go healthy!!!
