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 #131 - Travel Series Part 7b - Just Another Day at Work

The good news is that after arriving into the hotel at 2:00am this morning (Friday Morning), Patty and I were able to sleep in a little before our event, that took place from 6:30pm - 10:00pm. But here is the sad part, I am so programmed to wake up at 8:30am every morning, that my body did not skip a beat. Luckily I was able to force my self back to sleep for a little while. However, the work day continues to exist whether I am in the office or not. So, like the true workaholic that I am, I was up at 9:30am answering emails, taking calls, and developing new documents for my big event in Charleston.

I spent most of the day in my hotel room doing work but I did manage to escape for a nice healthy lunch at Subway. I can always rely on Subway when I am on the road because they have a store in almost every town across the country as well as having a store, in what seems to be every 10 miles, on each major highway. Once lunch was over, I was back to the grind trying to finish whatever I could before Patty and I had to hit the road for my event. I also managed to get a workout in, at the hotel fitness center, before we left We made sure to stop to get another bite to eat because we were going to be hungry waiting to 10:00pm after the event was over. The event ended up going well.

It is now currently 3:10 am in the morning, on Saturday. I wanted to make sure to keep up with my daily blog post. It is funny how posting a blog article has become a tradition in my eyes. I almost feel like it will bring me bad luck if I miss a night. But anyway, here I am for the 131st day in a row, sharing my day with you all. I am now going to try and get some sleep before I have to catch my flight home, at 6:30am. Sorry today's (Friday) post is so short, I am very exhausted and I promise I will have a better one for everyone tomorrow (Saturday). Until then, have a great night!

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)

Early Afternoon - (1) foot long chicken teriyaki sub on whole wheat bread with 2 slices of american cheese and a serving of baked potato chips (Subway) = Points 18
Late Afternoon - Turkey and cheddar sandwich on New Orleans french bread (Jason's Deli) = Points 11
Dinner - Cheese burger with a slice of american cheese on a hamburger roll = Points 10

Total Points Eaten Today = 39 Points (2 points over my daily limit)


Today I ran for 30 mins on the treadmill, at the hotel. Tomorrow I will be executing the weight lifting and strength training portion of my workout routine.

  1. I want your scale, with the success built in also.. Thanks for the inspiration

  2. It must have been a lot nicer this time because Patty could travel with you!
    Way to go both of you for managing to eat relatively healthy when on the road. That's something that i think is very hard.

  3. When you get time, head over to my blog...I've given you an award.
