Romance on the Plateau

Oh the scenic plateaus along the journey
It was going to happen sometime! This week, I gained a little on Monday then lost the same gain on Thursday resulting in a weight loss plateau this week.

It seems ridiculous in some ways to be disappointed by a plateau considering I was only perpetually in a state of gaining just nine weeks ago, however, after eight weeks of good losses I was a little down. 

Ironically, I turned to my old friend food to comfort me! Just when I think I've learned a lot, I give into my old triggers. However, "giving in" looks A LOT different now than it did before. A splurge amounts to an extra protein bar or extra cup of berries and my "off" switch is now functional whereas before it was all but defunct.

On a more exciting note, Jordan reached his half-way point this week at a loss of 35 lbs!!! To celebrate he planned a ridiculously romantic weekend for ME. How that works I have no idea but it's just like him.

On Friday, gorgeous summer blooms arrived for me at work. I came home to my overnight bag already packed by my hubs  (he didn't forget impressive is that?). He drove me downtown where we checked into Embassy Suites and got changed for dinner. We walked to JTK for a totally delicious, two-hour dinner where we made good choices while enjoying the menu. We strolled around the Haymarket spending time in my favorite local bookstore and headed back to the hotel.

Whoa, my hubs is a smoke show!

The next morning, we woke up, went to the Farmer's market, then out to coffee and finally, to JURASSIC WORLD which is the most excited I've been for a movie since I was a kid. It was a totally fabulous date and I couldn't be prouder of my hub's success. You amaze me, Jordan Higgins.
