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 #221 - Back to Work

I had that feeling of accomplishment once again as I headed into work today. But this time the feeling wasn't a result of something I did with the mission. It was actually pertaining to being able to pull off developing, planning, and executing a nationally televised football game in only 6 short months. An event like this usually takes a good year in order to be executed correctly. Myself and several other co-workers managed to it in only 6 months. And that my friends is an accomplishment!!! So while traveling into work today, I was calm and relaxed for the first time in months.

I was very excited for dinner tonight, because Patty was going to be making one of my favorite recipes (Beef and Vegetable Cheese Casserole). But unfortunately, I had a meeting today in New York City for work. This meeting was to start planning for next year's game. And of course I didn't get out of the meeting until about 6:45pm, just in time for rush hour traffic. So instead of losing our minds, being stuck in traffic for hours, we decided to eat dinner in the city and then drive home afterwards. This meant that I was going to have to improvise once again with a meal and that I wasn't going to make it home for the home cooked meal. But like I always do, I managed to adjust and ordered a nice healthy grilled chicken sandwich for dinner.

Other then my meeting today, the day went by very quickly and we ended up getting a lot done. I have one more day of work tomorrow, before I get to a nice relaxing weekend of football and catching up with family for the holidays. Until tomorrow my friends, have a great night!!

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