I have shared with you all very briefly, in a few posts, that I have a demanding job that takes up a lot of hours during my day. That is why I am not able to post my blog everyday until after 12:00am. Getting back to the point, my job entails some traveling and this my friends is a potential disaster waiting to happen. Which is why I am going to plan ahead and kick this potential problem right in the butt. I will still be writing my post everyday, even while I am traveling. It might not be posted until 2:00am the next morning, but I will promise you this, you will be able to see my progress from the day before just like you do now. I want to prove to the world that even though I will be traveling, I will continue to stick to my mission. I will still exercise, I will still eat healthy, and I will be in the best damn shape of my life when that countdown clock on the front page of this blog reaches 0 days. I will call these business trips, "The Heavy Man's Diary, The Travel Series." The first, part of the "Travel Series" starts this weekend. My company is running an event that has some crazy hours. The event runs on Friday from 2pm - 12am, Saturday from 2pm -12am, and on Sunday from 8am - 6pm. I am planning on still working out and eating healthy. I will be packing a cooler (everyday) with subs from Subway, fruit, some baked potato chips, a bag of rice cakes, and a ton of water. Wish me luck.
Before I get to the details of the day, I have a question that maybe someone can answer. I have been losing weight at a decent amount since I have started my mission 11 days ago. The amount loss has been pretty steady, between 1 & 2lbs a day. I realize that it is mostly water weight, but it is still weight that I don't have to carry around any more. Anyway, I weighed myself today at 11pm and I lost a little over 4 lbs since last night's weight-in. I am curious to find out that after a steady weight loss of around 1-2lbs for the last 10 days, why did I all of a sudden lose 4 lbs today. I have been doing everything the same. Is it because I stepped my workouts up a little? Can anyone please let me know if they have an answer to this question. Thank you.
Well, with that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
Meals of the day (The Heavy Man = 42 Points)
