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 #13 - Adjusting to the New Busy Schedule

The Past Few Days in Review

Hey everyone! Well it is unfortunate to say, but I 100% lost the battle over the last 5 days. But here is the thing, I admit it and now it is time to move forward! Last Thursday, a few of my co-workers and I took a trip up north for a weekend event. Now many of you know, I travel a lot for work and have been doing so for the last 7 years. But I have never had a weekend work schedule like the one I had this past weekend.

It was absolutely crazy! We were up Friday - Sunday around 5:30am and we did not get back to the hotel until around 9:30pm every night. Now that is what I call a full work schedule. I am not complaining at all and I realize that I am going to have to find a way to adjust to it. And when I say adjust, I mean....... find a way to eat healthy and exercise just like I would if I was at home.

Like I mentioned above, I am admitting that I lost the battle over the last few days. Even though I did not workout in a gym, I was still lifting heavy things and moving around a lot. As a matter of fact, I broke a sweat just about every day. Now the eating part is a different story. During the day I tried very hard to eat healthy. I actually had a healthy breakfast everyday, ate grilled chicken a lot, but lost it during dinner time. We really didn't have much time to eat during the day and when it came time to eat dinner, I was so damn hungry. And when I get that hungry, it is hard to control myself. I know I can do better and I am determined to do better going forward.

During the first few days of bringing back "The Heavy Man's Diary", I did really good. I lost 6.8 lbs to be exact. And now since I have gone off the course the last few days, I feel like I have gained back those 6.8 lbs and taken a large step backwards. It is a little disappointing to say this. However, I have no other choice but to get back on the right path. There is to much at stake to keep on going backwards. The next real battle for me is coming up this weekend with another traveling event. I am determined to win this time.

Today's Meals

It is no secret by now, I ate really crappy the last few days. Actually it was the last five days to be exact. I did not follow my Weight Watcher's Points limit and I am disappointed in myself for doing so. It is time to get back on the right path. I will be counting points once again tomorrow!

Today's Workout / Exercise Routine

Like my meals, I have not made it to the gym over the past five days. And there is no excuse good enough. I hit the gym once again tomorrow!
