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 #223 - A Much Needed Day Off

Today was a day of relaxation as well as productivity. The first thing I did this morning was to make sure that I got up and ate breakfast. The second thing I did was go straight to the gym to execute my weight lifting routine. Today was a full day of high school, college, and NFL football. I wanted to make sure to get my workout in early so I didn't have to worry about trying to get it in tonight after the late game. And I am glad I did so because I am tired and it is only 10:00pm on a Saturday. I guess my body is still trying to recoup after a long December. Also, Patty has been sick the last few days and I think I might be next because there is not many places in my apartment I can go to escape. I just hope it skips over me because getting sick now would really suck.

My eating routine is back to normal as well. I used up all of my daily points today and I made sure to space out each meal evenly so I wouldn't be hungry late tonight. It is great being back home with nothing but healthy food in our place as well as having Patty's home cooking back in full swing. The great thing about the recipes we use, is that the servings per meal is a lot, so we always have left overs for the next day. All I had to do today was put a serving on a plate and pop it in the microwave. There is nothing better then having time to workout properly, eating healthy great tasting food the entire day, and having football on the TV. Today was a much needed day!!

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