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 #123 - Almost the Weekend, But it Feels Like Monday

Has anyone ever have that feeling that it is Monday when it really is not Monday? Please tell me I am not nuts. As many of you know, I have been traveling for the last few days for business. I ran 3 events up in Canada that went really well and of course since I was in Canada, I was not in the office. Not being in the office for those few days and coming back into the office today, made it feel like it was Monday the whole day. Sorry you just lost the last 10 seconds of your life reading this nonsense but I was just curious if anyone has ever felt that before. Anyway, the weekend is almost here!!!

Yesterday morning I received an awesome award from a fellow blogger named Alan. His blog is called, "Pounds Off Playoff." Check it out when you get a moment. Anyway, I am very thankful to Alan for presenting me with this amazing award. So, in order to fully receive this award, I have to follow the protocol that goes with this award.

I had the opportunity to do so back in college but I chose to eat and drink like everyone else and before I knew it, I was out of control. I am definitely paying for it now. I will use that time in my life, as a learning experience and I will move on from there.
