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 #7 - Weather Permitting

The Day in Review

Hey everyone! Tonight's post is going to be short and sweet! I was swamped today at work trying to get everything done, as quickly as possible. I have a big business trip coming up this Thursday - Sunday. Sometimes there just isn't enough time in a day to get everything done that needs to be accomplished. But to say the least, I got a majority of what I set out to do today completed. So that is a good thing!

I also want to point out to everyone that I managed to stay on track with my eating today! Even though I was extremely busy, I still found a way to eat healthy. I also woke up early enough to eat breakfast as well! I know yesterday I made the mistake of not taking the time to eat in the morning and I paid for it dearly later on in the day. But as for today.... mission accomplished on the food side.

As for my workout routine, well that is another story. The weather actually played a big role in me not going to the gym tonight. Because when your area is issuing tornado warnings and you can not see a foot in front of your car window due to rain, you go straight home! The weather was so bad outside that it was extremely hard to drive home. I was also attempting this in the dark, so that did not help at all. And when I arrived home, I immediately jumped into helping my wife with the baby, while she made dinner. I realize now that I could have done at least some push-ups at home to get some sort of exercise in for the day. I know I have to stay on top of this as much as possible.

There is always tomorrow! I realize that are going to be days like this. My success with the "Mission to Healthy" will not be determined by one crazy day.... I will not let it! Have a great night everyone and I will see you all tomorrow!
