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 #48 - Today's Workout Routine - The Old School Edition

Today was a very eventful day. I had promised one of my best friends, that I would help her move all of her furniture and belongings into her new apartment. When you move heavy things, in very hot weather, up and down flights of stairs, and sweat is pouring down your body, I believe that would be called an "Old School Workout." We started the day at 8:00am this morning and went until about 7:30pm tonight. My entire body right now is extremely soar and tired. However, I didn't mind it at all because she is the closest thing I have to a sister. With all of the heavy lifting and constant movements, I would say that I had a very positive "Old School Workout" today.

During the course of the day, we decided to take a lunch break. In the middle of discussing where we should go to eat, my friend's father turned to me and said, "Where do you want to go to eat because we want to make sure it works for your diet." I was totally amazed, that in the middle of a conversation that involved 6 other people, he wanted to know where I wanted to go. Also keep in mind that he lives about an hour away and I hardly see him. I thought that was the coolest thing. I am the kind of person that would go out of his way for just about anyone and I never expect anything in return. I told everyone that I did not want them to cater to me and I would make adjustments to where ever they wanted to go. Well, it turns out that we ended up going to one of the best pizza places in town. And if I haven't told you yet, pizza is one of my most favorite foods of all time. I was determined to make it work because I wanted to have enough points left over just in case we all wanted to go somewhere nice for dinner. Needless to say, it was hard resisting the temptation of reaching out to the middle of the table and grabbing a slice. However, I came out of there victorious and ended up eating a grilled chicken wrap. Thank you "Will Power."

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

Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man = 40 Points)
(I am currently following the Weight Watchers Points System)

Breakfast - Egg whites on 2 slices of Weight Watchers whole wheat bread and a slice of fat free american cheese = Points 3
Snacks During the Course of the Day - 1 banana, 1 large apple, and 1 pear = Points 5
Early Afternoon - Grilled chicken with 2 slices of american cheese on a whole wheat wrap with a side of honey mustard = Points 10
Late Afternoon - 2 slices of Weight Watchers whole wheat bread with 2 slices of fat free american cheese = Points 3
Dinner - French Onion Soup, Steak and Mushrooms with a side of broccoli and potatoes (Applebees) = Points 14

Total Points Eaten Today = 35 points (5 points under my daily limit)


I was up at 7:30am helping my best friend move into her new apartment. I spent a good 10 hours moving heavy furniture in very hot weather up and down stairs. I will be doing my normal leg and shoulder workout routines tomorrow.
