I am always honest with everyone who chooses to follow this blog and I feel that you all should know how I fight my weight issues. And by me sharing with you what I do to cope with being over weight, doesn't mean you all have to do it as well. It is up to everyone to figure out what works for them the best and I am sure as hell not going to preach about what you all should be doing or should not be doing. I say that because it is your life and not mine. I started this mission and writing this blog because I am a person that needed help losing weight. I am not afraid to admit it because I honestly don't know everything it takes to do so. I have learned a lot so far, in the last few months, and I am sure that the learning process will continue to take its course for the rest of my life.
I enjoy reading comments that are left for me on my posts. I am constantly listening to all of the advice and tips. Some of the tips I have learned already and some of the advice I am hearing for the first time. I mean come on, isn't that why we all started to do this in the first place, to have a group of people who know how it feels to struggle with the same issue as you do. If we can't help each other then I don't know who will. I know losing weight and maintaining a healthy life style is not an easy task. Believe me, I have been trying to do so for a very long time. But I do know how great of a feeling it is when you physically feel better and when people go out of their way to comment on how great you look, after you lose some weight. I have learned that life is too short, and that is one of the reason why I bust my ass to become a healthier person. I have enjoyed becoming a better person both physically and mentally these last few months and that is something I would not change for the world. And even though I do have a "Cheat Meal" once a week, I still wake up the next morning ready to jump back into my mission. I also believe that can be the case for anyone if they worked hard at it.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:

Today I took the day off from exercising. I mentioned before, that I like to take a day off from working out to let my body rest. Tomorrow I will be executing the weight lifting and strength training portion of my workout routine.
