That's right, stroke the ego
I think I'll try holding a lowered plank as well as doing wide-arm push-ups as part of my body weight routines. Perhaps we'll see progression, perhaps not. I will let you all know either way!
Thanks to Kakes and WLB, I thought of an awesome winter date idea for this year, since it's my turn again: rock climbing! Boyfriend loves it and there are a few gyms around here. If I save up some PTO and we plan ahead, we could go in the morning for a discount and have a date day. Our past dates have been fancy, but this would be good motivation for both of us to get/stay in shape, plus I'm sure he'd have a blast. I've never been rock climbing so I'll have to take the intro course thing and pass the belay test. If we do a cheaper dinner, the whole day should be much cheaper than our past dates!
First winter date:
(So sad it came out blurry) Started off with dinner in Boston at one of our now-favorite places, then horse-drawn carriage ride (pictured), taking us to a Celtic Christmas Sojourn live concert.
Second winter date:
Same thing as the year prior, but we were falling asleep during the concert so we bailed and had ice cream in bed Boyfriend's invisible eyebrows did not make an appearance in this photo, but it's okay because my Cleopatra-haircut is pretty awful.
And last year was a flop because Boyfriend's busted shoulder was hurting too badly to stick it out through The Nutcracker (my idea) and dinner in Harvard Square. I made bacon-wrapped scallops as appetizers and they were awesome (they were practically a meal on their own). The dress I wore may make an appearance at my friend's wedding this October, unless I wear the one I'm reconstructing now. We didn't take any photos.
Kind of early to think about Winter, but I like to plan ahead
