Traveling home today, was like being trapped in a small box, waiting to break out. Patty and I had a great time with her family this weekend after our event had finished in Hampton, VA. However, the car ride home always seems to be the worst part. I know that we have a ton of things to get done before we can call it a night and sitting in the car, waiting 3 hours until we can complete those things, can make me stir crazy. Regardless, Patty and I arrived home at 6:15pm tonight, which gave us enough time to get our check list out of the way. And I will only give you one guess as to what I did first...... As soon I walked through the door of our apartment, I threw our stuff to the side and went straight to my dresser to change into a pair of shorts. Yes my friends, I went running outside. You see, I weighed in this morning at 238.4 lbs, which just so happens to be the lightest I have weighed in thus far for my mission!! And actually seeing that I managed to break through the 239 lb range, made me want to keep the scale going in the right direction even more.
It is always a great feeling to see that you have gone down in weight. It shows me that even though I was traveling, I still managed to eat healthy and workout, as if I was still at home. I am sure that not giving into a cheat meal yesterday helped out as well. I am excited about seeing 238.4 lbs on the scale this morning but I know that it could change at any moment if I slip up. I am determined to stay focused and to keep on pushing towards my goal. My wedding is starting to get closer and come hell or high water, I am going to be in the best shape of my life as Patty walks down that aisle to meet me at the alter.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
