Foodie Friday: Win the Ultimate Date Night!

This week for foodie Friday we are introducing you to a competition that one of our Foodie Friday contributors Chef Simeon Hall has 'Cooked up". The Ultimate date night as he is calling it is sure to bring romance back into your relationship! Not only to you win a superb private dinner for two, but they are getting you styled to perfection by "Kedar In Style" and ladies... your makeup will be flawless when "Ooh La Lepeche" is done with you.
Food, Fashion and the one you love? SIGN ME UP!
 I caught up with Chef Simeon and found out more about the competition.
What influenced you to host the "The Ultimate Date Night" competition?
Chef Hall:
Truthfully I look at so many busy young and older couples and I feel sorry for the working class family. We concentrate more on building our careers and taking care of our children and sometimes forget to strengthen our relationships. But it warms my heart every time I see a couple nestled in the small of a restaurant locked in a gazey eye stare. That is why I want to do this event and maybe I will be fortunate enough to have them name their child after me! LOL  
Where will the date be held?
Chef Hall:
It will most likely be held at the residence of the winners, However we are looking for a hosting venue that will blow the contestants socks off! 
What can the lucky couple anticipate for dinner?
Chef Hall:
That I can not say. What I can say is I will personally interview the couple and find out their likes and dislikes and tailor the menu to their liking. I will how ever be treating them to a few surprise courses.
Will you do this again, or is this just a one time thing?
Chef Hall:
In this format no. This is it. But we are already cooking up something else, pun intended! I do want to invite people to a celebrity chef event that I am cooking in on November 17th at the Flying fish in Freeport and to the 13th Annual Jerk Festival where I am participating in the Celebrity chef cook off and doing a chefs demo- On Sunday November 8th. Bahamasair is actually a partner in this event and is giving discounted fairs and hotel discount from a hotel partner as well! 
Can people book you to cook for their own special events?
Chef Hall:
Certainly. I do have some limits and guidelines but they certainly can. As long as it is for an experience and not just feeding crowds of people then I am definitely interested. 

My husband and I will definitely be entering this competition! We will post our video to this blog later on today! Information on how to enter is listed below.

Making it to minus 50: "The Struggle"

Todays struggle is staying focused on eating healthy. Trust me I am all about eating healthy and clean but when you see that moist piece of cake in the window of your favorite bakery that all goes out the window and you just want to indulge. 

I love food and its difficult for me to just cut carbs or not eat that french fry in front of me. What do you mean a pumpkin spice latte is over 300 calories?! Unfortunately our favorite foods are the ones that have the calories you should consume for the entire day in them.

This sacrificing my favorite foods never sits well with me and a rabbit diet is never fun.... Right?

So how in the world do you stay motivated in a world filled with delicious Starbucks coffee and extra cheesy pizza?

The answer is simple!

Remember what you are doing this for in the first place. Think on what your goals are and when you want to reach them. My husband/ personal trainer always tells me there is no such thing as a "Cheat Day". Diets will never work you have to change your lifestyle.

When I am giving in I always think to the future and dwell on what I want for myself ... then I pick up a piece of watermelon to satisfy my sweet tooth!

Staying motivated can be really tough, especially when you get up on the scale and see no changes or not the progress you had hoped to have. Be strong!! If all else fails look at a swimsuit photo of Beyoncé or a Victoria Secret model. That should get you motivated.

As I struggle through another week I would love to know where you are with your fitness journey and how you are staying motivated! Leave your comments below!
