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."

Days - #215, #216, & #217 - Time to Get Home!!

First of all, Happy New Year's to everyone!!! This very long month has finally come to an end and I am about to make my way back home!! The last time I spoke to you all, I was getting ready for my big event to happen on Friday. And I realized today that I keep on mentioning my big event but I never really shared with you all exactly what that big event was. I am the director of the NUC All-World Gridiron Classic. It is an all-star football game that is played in Charleston, SC. And to make things even more stressful, it was live on Fox College Sports nationally. Yep, I was running a nationally televised football game on a Fox Channel on New Year's Eve.

I know I kept on sharing with everyone how stressful this last month was. And it was very stressful because I didn't want to mess up or have this whole week look like crap. Well I can honestly say that all of the hard work did pay off. The week went well, all of the players were happy with the results, and I was told that the game looked awesome on television!!!! Even though this last month was rough with not being home and all of the work I had to do, I still managed to have fun during the game. And I am so proud of myself for not giving up when times got rough. I can thank my mission for that because I have learned through this whole process to not give up, no matter how difficult it can get.

I know I haven't been perfect with keeping up with the posts during this past week. I kind of expected it to happen because of how busy I was. But I promise that it will be back to the normal routine again this up coming week. I am so excited to get home and back into the normal routine. Well it is time to get to bed because we have a long drive ahead of us tomorrow. I will talk to you all later!!

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

Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man - 49 Points)

Dinner - grilled chicken with cheddar cheese on a pretzel roll with a serving of french fries

I did not workout in the gym today. I did however move equipment and boxes all day. I know I haven't had any time to workout this week but I will make up for it from now until my wedding day.
