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 #220 - A Much Needed Day Off / Front Shots

I am sorry that this post (Day #220) wasn't published last night but blogger was giving me some trouble. So I am going to be brief with what went on yesterday and I will then have a much more in depth post tonight for what happened today. I spent my second vacation day (yesterday) getting some more personal things done. It was great not having to wake up early in the morning and drag myself into work. It was so relaxing to be able to go at my own pace. The refrigerator is stocked with healthy foods and I have been back on my normal workout routine for the last 2 days now. I even made it back into the gym for my first weight lifting session in what seems to be almost two weeks. I am going to state for the record right now, that my weigh-in number will be up a little from yesterday morning because I lifted weights. I think my body will be catching up and evening out pretty soon, before we see a drop in weight again. But it won't take long before I am breaking through into the 190's. So as you can see, life is quickly getting back to normal and I am loving it.

I am going to leave you this morning with my tradition "Front Shot" comparison. I usually compare my "front shot photos" the day after I show my "Side Shot Comparisons." Let me know what you think and I will talk to you all tonight after work and my workout is over.
