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 #199 - 7 Years!!

Today was another very long yet productive day. I feel like I am moving at a faster speed than I was a few days ago. Like I mentioned yesterday, I have gotten through tough times before that I just had to fight my way through. And this current project I am in the middle of is no different. I am trying my best to do a great job and I only hope that it will come out great in the end.

Anyway, that is enough about work for tonight. I ate a little better today than I have the last few days. Now don't get me wrong, I have eaten healthy the last few days but my meals had consisted of grilled cheese sandwiches, egg sandwiches, and peanut butter & toast. I was forced to eat these meals because we have not gone food shopping in a few days because we all have been working constantly. However, today was a different story. I ate a nice turkey and bagel sandwich for lunch and I had a nice plate full of steamed chicken, broccoli, and rice for dinner. I was happy that I was able to get some different food in my system. I also ran outside for the second day in a row because our gym keys are not working anymore. Any exercise is better than none at all.

I have one more announcement to make before I turn in for the night. Today marks 7 years that Patty and I have been together as a couple! She has seen me at my best and has definitely seen me at my worst. But no matter what, she has stuck by my side through all of it. I will be happy to spend the rest of my life with her and call her my wife in just 8 short months. Patty I love you very much and I can't wait to see you soon!!

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