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 #6 (Part 2) - Baseball and Friends

My baseball team ended up winning our game today!! And guess what my friends, I hit 2 home runs today as well! I even received a few compliments on how fast I was around the base paths. So I would say that today was a great day on the cardio / exercise side of things. I say this because I played well today on top of getting a nice 3 1/2 hours of cardio in.

However, I will admit that I struggled a little on the eating side. I ended up have 2 slices of pizza today for lunch. But I did not let that stop me from eating healthy the rest of the day. I know there will be times where I will make mistakes and eat something I should not have eaten but that is life. And the most important thing I have learned from this mission so far, is to learn from my mistakes and move on. Because if I sit here and dwell on it, then I will never make any successful progress towards my goals.

Tonight was fun as well. Paul and Janine (Paul's Wife & Patty's Bridesmaid) invited us over for a nice healthy dinner consisting of turkey burgers and turkey sausage. And let me tell you, tonight's dinner hit the spot! It was also fun tonight because Paul is a Weight Watcher's guy as well. He actually started doing Weight Watcher's after I started and saw that it was working for me, so he decided to give it a try. And 60 lbs later, he feeling better than ever. We like to motivate each other all the time and believe me it helps every bit.

Anyway, I am exhausted and I want to wake up at 7:30am for basketball tomorrow. So until tomorrow and I mean tomorrow. Have a great night my friends!! Let's get to the details of the day:

  1. Love that you play Baseball! I am a ridiculous baseball fan and play Softball for two leagues. I also play kickball.

    Pizza happens. It is not an everyday thing. Great job today and overall.

  2. strange....i tried posting this on yesterday's post (day 5), but it won't let me....oh well. so anyways, here is my comment for day 5...albeit, a day late.

    "When you get fit, you can achieve a higher level of freedom. Freedom to have options and make choices you would never have dreamed of. Hum… do I want to play softball, basketball or do a triathlon. Oh gee...I think I’ll do it ALL!! That my friend is FREE WILL and you can’t put a price tag on that. Part two of your mission is getting fun. Be well, be happy."
