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 #92 - Get Ready Week, Cause Here I Come!

I woke up this morning and walked around my apartment trying to make my way to the bathroom. It took me a minute to realize that Patty and I moved our room and we were now farther away from the bathroom then we originally were. When I finally woke up, I stood there in my living room, marveling at how great our apartment now looks. I think Caroline (my sister) put it into prospective last night when she looked around at our remodeled apartment and said "Wow, It feels like we are grown ups." I think that was an awesome comment. To actually sit there and think about how far Patty and I have come gives me a great sense of accomplishment, a feeling that I definitely want to carry over with me into the rest of the week, not only in my personal life with my mission, but at work as well.

Today was a very productive day at work and it flew by really quickly. However, once the clock hit 7 pm, I set my attention on starting my exercise portion of the week off right. I mentioned in my post yesterday, that last week I was struggling trying to get my new workout regiment off the ground while trying get my apartment setup before Patty went back to school and I got into my busy time frame at work. I was successful with my apartment but fell short with my workouts. So, I made a promise to myself, yesterday, that I would not let that happen again this week.

So after work was over today, I made my way to the gym and I had a hell of a workout. I think my shoulders are going to be feeling it tomorrow. I also figured that since I had a rough time with working out last week that I would just start everything over again this week. I guess you can say that I started with a "Clean Slate." I am pumped and ready for whatever tomorrow brings. And by the way, tomorrow brings me a cardio workout with an Arms routine.

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