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 #182 - Getting Closer to December

Today was a very long and busy day. The beginning of December is getting close as each day passes by. And that means I will be leaving for a month very soon. So with that in mind, Patty and I spent the day together preparing for my departure, as well as trying to get some quality time in before I leave. And with all that was going on today, I still managed to wake up a 7:30am this morning to play basketball. I actually ended up playing from 8:00am to 9:45am. Which means I got a good hour and 45 minutes in of cardio today. I know I was planning to get to the gym for a weight lifting session but the day was to full of things that needed to get done.

I also managed to get back on track today with my normal eating pattern. The last week has been an up and down roller coaster ride pertaining to food. But I am now back on track and it is important for me to stay there, especially when I am going to be away for a month without Patty's cooking. I will definitely be fine on the workout side, it is just trying to cook as good as Patty does is what worries me. I want to try and stick to home cooked meals as much as possible, so I can save my money by not going out to eat everyday while down in Charleston. So I am going to have to learn real quickly how to make the healthy meals I have grown accustom to.

Anyway, I have to wake up at 4:00am for a morning flight out to Alabama tomorrow. I have one last event to run before the big move to Charleston takes place. I hope you all have a great night and I will talk to you tomorrow with a new edition of The Heavy Man Travel Series.

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