When my husband and I go out on a date it typically involves dinner and a movie.  I recently began trying to lose weight and get healthier.   With that in mind, I didn’t think that a date revolving around eating would be the best idea.  Even going to the movies is not going to work because when I go to the movies I just have to have a icy cold soda and hot buttered popcorn!   So I started thinking about some possible date ideas that would allow us to be a bit more active.   A plus to this is that, when you are active, your body release hormones know as endorphins, which can give you feelings of euphoria and well-being.  I came up with the following ideas.  Some are a bit too adventurous for me, but perhaps you might enjoy them.
