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 #10 (Part 2) - Work Then Travel

Today was another busy day of work. It is funny but it seems like I have a whole lot more work to do when I am working from home. Don't get me wrong, I worked by butt off at my last job when I was in an office during the week. But it seems like the day goes by quicker when I work from home. To tell you the truth, it doesn't feel like there is enough time in the day to get what I have to get done. As long as I do what I am supposed to do and make my boss happy, then I have no complaints at all.

I will officially back on the road once again, starting tomorrow. I am flying down to Jacksonville to assist with the operations of my new company's first event of the year. I am very excited to get down there because I will be meeting a lot of my new co-workers for the first time. Like I mentioned yesterday, it is always fun putting a face to the voice. And if this weekend goes the way I know it can, we all could be in for a successful year. I am knocking on wood and crossing my fingers as I am typing.

Today was also another strong day for the mission. I ate very well and got back into the gym again for my cardio and core body workout routines. I am a little upset that I couldn't do my cardio outside today. The last two days have been full of crappy weather. And when I say crappy, I mean snow, rain, and hail. I don't understand how we can go from absolutely amazing weather this weekend back to this crap. I really can't wait for Spring to be in full swing because that means the snow will be gone and I can exercise outside a lot more! As I start to train for the 2 triathlons I will be doing in September, I think being able to do so outside is going to be the key to my success.

Anyway, it is getting late and tomorrow is a travel day. I am going to continue to follow my mission while I am gone. I am hoping that I will be able to get internet access while I am on the road. If I am not able to, I will make sure to update everyone with how the weekend went on Monday. So until tomorrow my friends, have a great night! Let's get to the details of the day.
