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 #139 - Travel Series Part 8b - Another Successful Event

Today's event in Bowie, MD had me running around from about 9:00 am to about 5:30 pm today. I didn't make it to the gym unfortunately but I sure did get a cardio workout, in some way shape or form. Today's event was also a first of its kind because we arrived about 3 hours early to film highlights of a pep rally that was being put on before the actual game we were there to cover. I will tell you what my friends, if you are in the area of Bowie, MD around this time next year, make sure to stop by Bowie High School and witness one of the most amazing pep rallies you will ever see at the high school level. I was very impressed and the atmosphere was out of this world. Anyway, the event that I was responsible for, went well and the game was a nail biter going down to the last seconds. I definitely would call this weekend's work efforts a success!

I woke up this morning, once again, in another hotel for the thousandth time. And yes, I was equipped to keep the mission going strong. As soon as I was up and out of bed, I made my way to the bathroom where my scale was residing. Wondering if I had accomplished my next goal of breaking into the 230 lbs range, I stepped up on the scale. And to my excitement, the scale read 239. 8 lbs! It was definitely a moment to celebrate for reaching this next milestone, however I do realize that it is barley into the 230's and of course my weight can fluctuate in a different direction, very easily tomorrow morning. Plus, today was a cheat meal day, however my cheat meal was a cheese burger with onions and a serving of fries. Also had a few nachos as well. But when it comes down to it, I really didn't go over board with my cheat meal at all this week. So, hopefully my weight is still in the 230's come tomorrow morning. I did move around an awful lot today, so hopefully that is a positive deciding factor. And if it just so happens that am I back in the low 240's again tomorrow, I will just have to keep on working hard to make this newest goal accomplished permanently.

Well it is once again 2:30 am in morning and I am here writing my daily post, to share with you all. No matter what, you can always count on me having something to share with you all every single day. I hope everyone has a great night! Talk to you tomorrow.

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)

*Today was a cheat meal day, so I will still be sharing the foods I ate today with everyone without the points.

Breakfast - (1) 99% Fat Free Yogurt and  bowl of Cheerios with a cup of milk
Lunch - French Onion Soup and the Weight Watchers grilled chicken sandwich (Applebees)
Dinner - About 12 nacho chips, a cheese burger on a roll with mozzarella cheese and onions, and a serving of fries


I did not make it to the gym today, however I was moving around and running an event from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm today. My legs and hips are very sore. Not to mention I am physically exhausted. Tomorrow I will be executing the weight lifting and strength training portion of my workout routine.

Day #139 - Weigh-In = 239.8 lbs

Day #139 Front Shot


  1. Very hard to keep it together when on the road. I'll be in a hotel the next three nights myself. I'm bringing my gym stuff, hope I can work up the gumption to use it.

  2. I find it hard to post each day from the comfort of my own home. How you do it on the road is astounding to me. And you made it to another weight range - congratulations for that. It is extra special to see a different range on weigh ins. It isn't just another loss.
