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 #110 - Getting Things Done Without Any Distractions

It is amazing how much work I can accomplish when I don't have anyone to interrupt me in the office. Don't get me wrong, I love interaction with other people more then anyone and I think I would go crazy if I didn't have anyone to talk to. But, there are just some days when I wish I could just be alone so I can focus on what has to get done at work. I have grown to love the weekends when I don't have anything scheduled to do. Now when I say I don't have anything scheduled, I mean I have absolutely nothing at all. Nothing to do for work and nothing to do at home, except for a few errands that need to be taken care of. So you can only imagine how great it is for me when I am one of the only people in the office on a Friday. Today started with a full house but by the time it reached 1:30 pm you could hear a pin drop in the hall way because everyone was off coaching their respected high school sports teams. And without all of the distractions, I was able to get what I needed to get done so Patty and I could do whatever we felt like tomorrow without having to worry about work at all!!

Keeping with the theme, I also love it some times when I am one of the only people in the gym. I usually try to get to the gym right after work because I like to get my workout done early in the evening so I can relax for the rest of the night. However, there are those days where I have to get a few things done personally and I can't get to the gym until a little later. By the way, one of the main reasons why I love being a member at a 24 hour gym. I can go whenever I want, if my schedule gets hectic during the day. Thank you Anytime Fitness, love you guys! Anyway, getting back to the story, I got into the gym a little late today (11pm) but that was fine by me because I was 1 of only 3 people there at the time. It is better for me when the gym is empty because my new cardio based workout routine calls for me to execute a lot of different exercises, one right after the other. And it is some times difficult when people are using the machine I need to use at the time. Like I said, I love interacting with other people, but I go to the gym get a good workout in without any distractions. But I still love all of you, of course! Feel free to talk to me as much as you want if you ever run into me!

When all is said and done, today was a quick and very productive day. I guess when you step back and think of it, everyone really wants their Fridays to go by quick and painless. I know I do because it leads to the weekend, my favorite part of every week! By the way, good luck to everyone this weekend with your football teams!

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

  1. Nobody to interrupt you in the office,I experience that phenomenon once in a while too and I agree I can get allot of stuff done I tend to put off a day or two on typical days when interruptions are the norm.
