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 #183 - The Heavy Man, Travel Series Part 13a - Early Mornings and Late Nights

Crunch time is approaching for the big event that I am developing for the end of December. This is the time of year where my job really takes over both my days and my nights. And for the next month, I will be eating and breathing this event. I am just happy that I am a little bit healthier now during this time because if I was the same as I was before the mission started, I know I would really be struggling to survive this next month.

Anyway, today marked my last traveling event for the season. I am happy that all of the traveling every weekend is over for now. I know I will be away for the next month but at least I will be staying in once place during that time. And you would think that since today's event was the last traveling event, that it would be easy. But no, nothing is ever as easy as I you would like it to be. Now the event itself was a piece of cake. However, the traveling part is what sucked the most. I woke up this morning at 3:30am to catch a 6:30am flight to Alabama. I then had to drive from Birmingham, AL to Fulton, Mississippi. It was a 2 hour drive to get there. I had to drive that long because there are no major airports within a 2 hour radius of Fulton, MS. After the event was over, I then had to drive 2 hours back to Birmingham so I could catch my morning flight home. And to add onto this very long day, I came back to the hotel to do more work that has to get done before I leave for Charleston.

I am finally sitting down to write this blog and I am having trouble keeping my eyes open to do so. I was so busy today that I did not even make it to the gym. I am determined to wake up early tomorrow morning to workout before I leave for home. The hotel I am staying in has weights in their fitness center! I hope you all have a great night and I will talk to you tomorrow.

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

Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man - 35 Points)

I have been traveling the entire day and did not make it to the gym. I will be working out tomorrow morning before I fly home.
