My Story

On Monday, May 31, 2010, I embarked on a mission to lose weight and to get into the best shape of my life for my wedding. For a long time that mission was a success until life started getting stressful and food became a way to cope with that stress. To make a long story short, the mission fell short before my wedding day was here. And to make things even worse, I stopped eating healthy, exercising, and blogging for over two years. I now have a very beautiful wife and baby boy but my health is still crap. So to turn things around, I am brining back "The Heavy Man" and the "Mission to Healthy."

Day #4

I am sweating, my legs are soar, my feet hurt, and I couldn't be more proud of myself right now.  I have started the process of implementing exercise back into my busy life. I know it isn't 7am in the morning but I guarentee I will work my way to it. It is currently the end of Day #4 and I think I am starting to get into the habit of eating healthy.  Now it is time to work on building an exercise regiment that I can keep to while trying to keep up with my busy work schedule.  I know it has only been four days but I already can feel a difference in my body.  I feel like I have more energy and motivation then I have had in the last few months.

It was a very long day at work today, as matter of fact it has been a very busy last four years of work. As I mentioned before in a previous post it is hard to find the time to take an hour out of my day to workout. During my 30 min walk tonight through the streets of my town, I noticed that my Fiancee had a very large smile on her face. I asked her why she was smiling and she had a very interesting answer. She told me that she liked walking with me because it took my mind off of work and it was a great way to spend time with me while we were both working out. I totally agree with her and I am determined to make more time after work to have more of those walks.

With that being said let's get to the details of the day.

Meals of the Day

Breakfast - Scrambled egg whites on whole wheat bread with fresh mixed fruit salad and water
Lunch - Tuna with a single piece of american cheese on whole wheat bread with lettuce, a side of baked potato chips, apple slices, and a bottle of water (All from Subway)
Dinner - Chicken BLT Salad with fat free french salad dressing, a side of croutons, and a bottle of water (All from Wendy's)

I drank plenty of water today and took all of my vitamins from GNC

Daily Exercise

Once again I attempted  to wake up at 7am this morning and struggled to do so. I did however go for a 30 minute walk today.  I am planning on putting together a weekly exercise plan this weekend. I will keep everyone updated.
