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 #195 - A Little Rest at Last!!

The weekend is finally here!!! I was so happy when I woke up this morning and my calendar said it was Saturday. The long week of meeting after meeting was finally over and I could actually sit down to organize everything. Now granted I had 2 meetings today but they were on board a World War II battle ship and I didn't mind those meetings at all. Other then those two work related objectives, the rest of my day was pretty relaxing and I totally needed that after this last week.

I also woke up this morning weighing in at 215.6 lbs!! I am still amazed that I was able to lose a good amount of weight since arriving down in Charleston a little over a week ago. I guess the constant working out and the new Weight Watcher's program has really helped with this current weight loss streak. However, I did go a little over board at dinner tonight and ate a little more than I normally do. We had turkey tacos tonight and I ended up eating 3 instead of my intended 2. And to tell you the truth, I felt a little guilty for doing so at the time I had finished the third taco. But then I realized that it has been a long time since I had a cheat meal and I have done so well this past week. This might not be a good excuse to do so but I am not going to let it bother me at all. I might weigh-in tomorrow morning more than I did this morning but I feel that I will be in the low 210's by the time my event rolls around on December 31st.

Anyway, I am going to get to sleep soon because I want to get up tomorrow morning to play a little basketball before I get back to work. 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 - 49 Points)
