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 #5 - A Normal But Challenging Sunday

The Day in Review

Today turned out to be a normal slow moving Sunday. With the way my workout routine is developed, I go three days in a row with an intense workout and then I take a day off for my body to recover. But after that day of rest is over, it is back to the grind for three more days in a row of working out. So you could only imagine how happy I was to give my body a rest today!

What better way to rest than to do it on NFL Sunday! I just love turning on the TV, throwing my team's jersey on, and watching nothing but football from morning until night. And that was how my day was shaping up to be! However, here is the twist that made my day so much more challenging than just sitting down and watching football. Today was the first day since I started "The Heavy Man's Diary" back up, that I literally had nothing to do. Which means I was going to be sitting at home with all of the food in my kitchen. And what do most people do while watching a football game....... eat crappy food and drink!

Since I started back up with the "Mission to Healthy", I have been on the go and moving around constantly. So because I was keeping myself busy, all I really had to do was remember to eat my meals, go to the gym, and write the daily post. But like I mentioned before, I was taking a day off from the gym and sitting at home to watch football. And let me tell you.... the temptation to pig out was there. Now before you all think I have a ton of crappy food in my kitchen, I want to assure that I do not! Patty and I made sure, during our last trip to the food store, that we stocked up on healthy meals and snacks. But that doesn't mean that I can sit there and stuff my face with healthy meal after healthy meal. The real challenge was to make sure that I did not over eat and surpass my Weight Watcher's Points limit for the day. I will honestly say that there are a lot of good tasting healthy meals and snacks out there that could cause me to get carried away.

To make a long story short, I ended up eating the exact amount of points I am allowed for the day, while enjoying a few games. Anyway, tomorrow is a new day and the start to a new week. I only have two more full days until I weigh myself on Wednesday morning! Then we all can see how I did for my first official week back. Have a great night everyone!
