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 #240 & #241 - To Much Snow!!!

As I sit here tonight (Wed, Jan 26, 2011 - Day #241), writing this most recent post, I am reminded of how much I miss the warm weather. As many of you know, I live in New Jersey and we are currently in the middle of a very bad snow storm right now. The kind of snow storm that does not allow you to see a foot in front of you as you drive down the street or attempt to look out the window. So with this being said, you could only imagine how hard it was to get to the gym to workout. But being either the brave or dumb person that I am, I decided to take the trip to the gym anyway because I didn't want to miss my workout. I didn't want to miss the workout today because I managed to actually get below 202 lbs, as of this morning, and I was afraid to lose the momentum that I currently have.

Anyway, it usually takes me about 10 minutes to get to the gym but this time it took me a little longer. And as I embarked on my very snowy journey, I manage to pass two cars stuck in the snow in the street and I got stuck behind the snow plow brigade for what seemed to be a life time. However, this story does not end successfully because the gym was closed when I got there. All of that was for nothing. So I turned around and made my way back home. Of course there is always tomorrow but I am afraid to see if I went back up in weight because of the missed workout today.

Yesterday (Tues, Jan 25, 2011 - Day #240) was a very boring day. I was in the office the entire day from morning until around 7:00pm, came home for dinner, and then went to the gym to workout. So you all didn't miss anything. But I still want to leave you with my update photos for both yesterday and today. Until the next post, have a great night everyone!!!

  1. Seems like you and gyms are highly incompatible lately. If you can't workout, try to cut down a few points here and there and you should be fine.

  2. Want to borrow some snowshoes??
