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 #121 - Travel Series Part 6b - Working Around the Clock

When I left you all last, I was writing about my crazy long journey, driving to Canada yesterday. When I was done writing the post, I had the full intention of trying to get some sleep. However, it did not quite work that way at all. It was already 3 am when I had finished writing yesterday's post and I had to get up at 5:30 am to get ready for this morning's event. I also had a few things that I still had to finish on top of that as well. So I decided to push forward and finish everything I had to do, so I was prepared for both of my events today.

I am still amazed that I am currently awake right now, writing this post, because I was running around like a mad man today. I first had to setup this morning's event at 8am which took a while to do so because it was raining very hard this morning and I did not want to get all of my equipment wet. After the event was over, I had to pack everything up and move onto the next location. The second event of the day was supposed to be even bigger then the first event this morning. Let me tell you, there was only 15 people at this morning's event and there had to be almost 600 people at the second event this afternoon. So you could only imagine how alert and awake I had to be to execute the second event to a "T."

After both events were completed, I was taken out to eat by the parents of the person I was honoring during this afternoon's event. I was so exhausted that I barely managed to eat anything. As a matter of fact, I did not eat much at all today because I was running around the entire day, setting up and breaking down all of my equipment. When all is said and done, I managed to run two fairly decent events today on very little sleep. Not to mention, I did a ton of cardio today as well. I have actually not slept since 8am yesterday morning. Which means I have actually been awake for almost 37 hours straight and I also have to wake up at 6:00am tomorrow morning for my final event in Canada. I think I will go to sleep now. Have a great night everyone!

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

Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man - 37 Points)
( I am currently following the Weight Watchers Points System)

Breakfast - 3 egg whites with 2 slices of whole wheat toast with a little butter = Points 5
Lunch / Dinner - Penne pasta with grilled chicken and vegetables = Points 9
Dessert - 2 apples = Points 4

Total Points Eaten Today = 18 Points (19 points under my daily limit) I know this probably looks bad but it was not intended at all. I was extremely busy with two events and I am way to exhausted to even think about eating right now. I think the most important thing right now is that I get some much needed sleep.


I did a ton of cardio today by setting up and breaking done all of my equipment, in the rain, for two events today.
