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 #157 - A Great Night of Comedy and Cardio

I found out some good news and some disappointing news today at work. My business trip to San Francisco was cancelled for this week. It is good because I can be home, the next few days, to take some much needed time to get some important objectives done for my big event in Charleston, SC coming up in December. It is disappointing because I was looking forward to showing Patty around down town San Francisco. Well I have quickly learned in the last few months, that everything happens for a reason. So I am hoping that the trip being cancelled leads to some good and productive things.

I spent another fun night in New York City again tonight. My brother was inserted into a special event tonight at Stand Up NY Comedy Club. He has been doing a great job lately, landing spots in shows all over the city in big time comedy clubs. I only hope that this leads to much bigger and better things for him in the future. If you have a free moment, check out his Facebook Page. I just want to warn everyone that his material has a lot of adult content in it. But he is a very funny guy regardless. Please let him know what you think.

What made this trip into NYC different then any other night, was that I had to walk even further to get to this club. When I first mapped out the trip, the estimated time to get there from the train station in NYC was 8 mins. Now I know the estimated time of travel was if I was driving there. However, I was trying to save money, so I decided to walk there from the train station. It turns out that the walk was about 47 blocks, which translated to almost an hour of walking. I am going to be honest and let you all know that I walked more then half way there but was afraid that I was going to miss the start of the show, so I took a taxi the rest of the way. So in reality I walked 29 blocks there. However, on the way back to the train station I ended up walking all 47 blocks, which brought my grand total to roughly 76 blocks of cardio. I walked for almost 2 hours to and from the club. I also ate healthy the entire day as well.

When all is said and done, I got a ton of cardio in today, I ate healthy all day, and I saw some great comedy while supporting my brother. I think it turned out to be a great day overall.

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

Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man - 36 Points)
(I am currently following the Weight Watchers Points System)

Breakfast - 2 homemade Glazed Pear Muffins (Weight Watchers Recipe) = Points 6
Snacks During the Day - 1 serving of baked Tostitos w/ mango salsa and an apple = Points 5
Early Afternoon - 1 serving of homemade Two Cheese Vegetable Lasagna (Weight Watcher Recipes) = Points 6
Late Afternoon - 1/2 a Chicken Teriyaki Sub on whole wheat with a slice of cheese and a side of baked tostitos w/ mango salsa = Points 8
Dinner - 1 grilled chicken wrap with lettuce, carrots, and mushrooms = Points 8

Total Points Eaten Today = 33 Points (3 points under my daily limit)


Today I walked roughly 76 blocks in NYC, which translated to about 2 hours of cardio. I did not make it to the gym thought. Tomorrow I will be executing the weight lifting and strength training portion of my workout routine.

Day #157 - Weigh-In = I did not make it to the store today to purchase my new scale due to traveling to my brother's show, that started at 8:00pm tonight. I will be purchasing the scale tomorrow.
