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 #202 - Please Let Me In!!!!

I weighed in this morning at 213.2 lbs. I had a great weight loss streak going for the last two weeks and now all of a sudden, I am spiking back up a little. But I am not worried about it one bit because I have learned that it will happen to my body numerous times during this mission of mine. I do believe that eating the chili from last night, even though it was a small portion, had something to do with this little spike from yesterday morning. You have to take the good with the bad, in order to get where you want to be. And believe me, I will get to where I want to be, that is a promise my friends.

I finally got back into the gym today!!! It has been a some what long process but I was determined to not go one more day without executing my weight lifting routine. Now getting into the actual gym itself was a bit of a process. I ventured out to the office today, where I could get a new key for the gym. I finally got tired of waiting for the new keys to come to me, so I went to them. I was able to secure two new keys pretty quickly and I made sure to test them to see if they worked. And the test was pretty successful because I was able to open the front door to the gym fairly easy. Later on in the night, I decided that it was time to get my workout in. So I made my way to the gym around 10:00pm. As I walked up to the door, I proceeded to slide the key into the slot and it did not work! At this point, I had enough. I wasn't going to miss another day of weight lifting because the freakin door wasn't playing nice with me. I actually called up the office, which is open 24 hours a day, and pleaded for them to let me in. And sure enough, I had a person there not even five minutes later, to let me in the gym. After a long few days and some patience tonight, I finally executed my weight lifting routine!!

I can't tell you how great it felt to be in the gym today. It cleared my mind and made me feel so relaxed. Anyway, Patty is flying into Charleston tomorrow and I want to make sure that I wake up in the morning to pick her up. Until tomorrow my friends, have a great night!

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