DAY 37 - Tuesday August 27th

Info: Got a lot of veggies in the house and got some bulk cooking done so there is less scrambling and more relaxing when thinking about whats for dinner. Felt really good today for some reason, I think finally being back home, with food cooked and not much else to do was a nice relief. Although hardcore practice for the Utah State IDPA match starts tomorrow, I am not going all the way to Utah to make a stupid mistake and lose the match like I did in Colorado! More on that here:  Click to see how I fared at the Colorado State IDPA Championships. Did well breaking the caffeine issue I had last week though, no headaches and only an iced tea here and there! Woohoo!

DAY 35 - Sunday August 25th

Info: Long drive home today, but we all made it in once piece! Managed to get mostly back on track with eating, left out some veggies as I didn't have any with me, and wasn't going to try and eat a salad while trying to make the best time back to Denver.

Exercise log: none - back issues again, tweaked it at the state match, I am going to have to take a week off and re evaluate after that. I am going to try cardio here and there, but lay off the lifting for a bit. Not that I was doing that much, but seems ever time I lift or twist it re tweaks the muscle pull.


Colorado State IDPA Championships

It was a bit of a hike to drive from Denver out to Montrose for the 2013 Championships, but when you are as addicted to the shooting sports as I am, you simply hop in the car and go for it (We are heading to Utah at the end of September and New Mexico at the end of October). It was a pleasant drive, and Montrose is a pretty cool town even though they roll the sidewalks up at 9pm!

My goal going in to the match was to win my class which is Enhanced Service Pistol, Sharpshooter, otherwise known as ESP SS. This was my 1st major IDPA match and I had high expectations. I had practiced dry fire and live shooting, and felt pretty good going in to the match. The only thing that could go wrong was mental mistakes.
BluCore Shooting Team in Montrose CO

The good and the bad was I was not squadded with anyone else from my class at the match, so it was a mystery how everyone else was doing, and how I was doing in comparison. We would have to shoot 12 stages and wait for the final numbers to be calculated before anyone would find out how they did.

One particular stage had a sort of blind "bad" guy target right next to a "no shoot" target, they were so close to a barrier, from your shooting position you couldn't see which was the bad guy or good guy, and you had to shoot off memory. I ran the stage in a decent time, and felt like I had all good hits....walking around with the scoring crew I was very happy with what i was hearing....1 down through the whole stage, and then all of the sudden 10 down, failure to neutralize, and a hit on a non threat.....I was surprised, and ran over to see and there she was...the hidden non shoot, with 2 perfect headshots. For those of you that don't know, shooting the non threat or no shoot target is bad. In fact this particular "bad" cost me 15 seconds overall in penalties. I had shot the good guy, missed the bad guy and went on with my day. What it boiled down to was under the stress of the buzzer I had forgotten which target was which, and shot the wrong one. DAMN DAMN DAMN.

I walked over to the seating area and told a few people, if I lose this match, it is because of what I just did. Words that would ring so true 5 hours later....

Final scores finally calculated I walked up, and took a look:

Rozalewycz, Jim A41535 ESP SS 278.01

152 86.00 364.01

VanWagner, Kris A48155 ESP SS 295.50
3 2
108 79.00 374.50

Yep I had lost by 10.49 seconds. Without that 1 target array I would have won my 1st ever State IDPA Championship.

All of that aside, this match was a great challenge and a lot of fun. I'll proudly take my 2nd place, and make sure that I improve on that next time! I've got 30 days until the Utah State Championship, and I am once again setting my eyes on a win. This time I will just make sure I remember which one of the targets is the bad guy............
DAY 34 - Saturday August 24th

Info: Today was going pretty well out at the range, packed my meals, except didn't have a veggie with me, not sure what I was thinking there. The range offered sloppy joes and coleslaw for lunch, seemed good to me, didn't think about it until I had ate it, coleslaw has a lot of sugar in it. My mess up, my penalty I guess, so I am using a cheat day for today. I've got 2 left for the rest of the year, which oddly enough I am looking forward to using up, so I have no other options. Since I used a cheat day, I had some trail mix and a few beers as well after the State match. Click to see how I fared at the Colorado State IDPA Championships.

DAY 30 - Tuesday August 20th

Info: Well it's been a month already, and while not 100% Whole30 I would call my project a success so far. I feel better, less bloated, less tired (most of the time) and I feel I am just gaining steam. The cheat days I have allowed myself were easy to recover from, which had never been the case in the past.

Info: Ahh good old Monday..... Ate clean, no Iced Tea today in an effort to cut back on that a little, will start allowing myself a glass a day or so once I am not getting headaches from the caffeine withdrawals.

DAY 28 - Sunday August 18th

Info: Back on track again today as expected, had to teach a firearms class today so knew lunch would be tricky, but I managed. Don't have any bulk cooked at the moment, which is my bread and butter for ease of eating and staying on track. Can't allow myself to run out of foods that easily and will be cooking twice a week now for the majority of my proteins so I have them available.

DAY 27

Info: Found out there was a bacon festival close to my house so had to go check it out. Also found out my wife knows the people that own the company that put the bacon festival on, double win! Organic, no GMO, no gluten bacon, and a local company? I'll take it. ( I need to see if they make non sugar bacon, as I never checked the ingredients)  The problem with all that is I ate a lot of bacon, and not much else. I decided this was going to be day 2 of my 5 out of the year that I would enjoy some food. Funny story, even though I invoked a cheat day, I didn't get crazy.......its almost like I'm' learning something here! I did chug 2 diet sodas, I was getting migraine type headache from no caffeine. (There was no iced tea available and I was desperate) The diets sodas fixed the issue, but also opened my eyes to the fact I was drinking waaaaay too much iced tea. So going forward not so much iced tea. In fact I have the same type of headache right now, but I need to suffer through it and get rid of some of the caffeine.

Breakfast: Almond butter, banana, 2 eggs handful of carrots

Lunch: Habanero bacon, Pork loin wrapped in bacon, dill pickle wrapped in bacon, maple bacon, carrots. (Yeah bad I know)

DAY 24 - Wednesday August 14th

Info: Interesting day today, food all went well, but was a mentally taxing one. I also work in the firearms industry as well as being a competitive shooter, and today one of our loading machines set of a primer stack. For those of you that don't know what that is, imagine 130 guns all going off at the same time right behind you. It was freaky, it was LOUD. Fortunately no one was hurt, I just have ringing in my right ear, and it hurts a bit. If it doesn't go away by the morning I am going to have to go see a doctor. Minor stuff compared to what could have happened. Then I found out that one of the instructors I used to manage was let go because of a seemingly honest mistake. Sad part is he was one of our best instructors and was trying to help out company out. Like I said mentally taxing day. But hey we get up and move on I guess. At least I have the fuel of the Whole 360 pushing me along!

Lunch: steak salad with romaine lettuce and guacamole, fresh salsa

I am really picking up steam now, and seem to want to eat healthy all the time instead of "having" to. The support I am getting from here, and from my blog, and facebook is really outstanding. I am glad I bit the bullet and started writing this journal as well as sharing my before pictures. With others knowing what I look like under clothing, and seeing the true me is really driving me forward

Whole 30 - Where can you find out more?

So a few people have been asking me where they can get some more information on the Whole 30 program, especially since I posted a link to this blog on Facebook. I intend for this page to get you a decent start on where and what to look for. Also just a note, if you are interested in anything on this page, I have links in the pictures, so click the pic and it will take you to where you can check out reviews, buy the book, and get more details.

Click for the website
First things first let me guide you to where it all started for me. Dallas and Melissa Hartwig are the creators of the Whole 30 program, and the Whole 9. I wont describe what it all is here, but you can find the website here and do some browsing for yourself. Tons and tons of info can be found on the website, enough really to give you a great start on your Whole 30. There is also an awesome forum where you can ask any questions you may have, as well as find support, how-to's and anything else related to the Whole 30. You can find the forums here: Whole 30 Forums

Click for more info
The next thing I recommend is picking up Dallas and Melissa's book "It Starts With Food" This book will run you through everything you need to know about the Whole 30. What foods are approved, how to construct a good meal, the science of eating healthy, why grains are bad for you, you name it, it's in this book. The cool thing is the book is a good read too, not some boring scientific manual that you have to prop your eyelids open to read. I have read it 4 or 5 times now! Check out the reviews on Amazon if you want more proof that it truly is an awesome book. Plus its $14 ($10 for Kindle) that will literally change your life....what do you have to lose?

Click for more info
The next book is a cook book written by a very talented chef named Melissa Joulwan. If "It Starts with Food" is the vehicle, Well Fed is the fuel that drives it. It has TONS of awesome recipes in it that are all Whole 30 approved (well all but 1) and are pretty fast and easy to make. Tons of good pictures help out as well, and again another great read. I just keep this book on my kitchen counter because I use it so much. Melissa also keeps a blog that I visit from time to time that has tons of valuable paleo information on it as well. You can find it here: While the name doesn't particularly appeal to the male reader, trust me, check it out guys it's a great site.

If you are at all like me you will want more info on what the Whole 30 is, as well as what a Paleo diet is as well. There are tons of books out there and many different forms of the Paleo style diet. Below are a few more that I have found are worth checking out. I don't particularly like reading the 'sciency" stuff all that much, so I tend to go with the books that are to the point but enjoyable to read.

In no particular order here are some of my favorites: (Click any book to go to to get more info)



There is so much information out there that I could not list them all on here for you to look at. Hopefully what I have here can get you a good head start and you can find out what you need to know. Of course if you have any questions PLEASE PLEASE leave a comment or shoot me an email and I will do what I can to help you out. I know I keep saying it, but any support you can give, or even if you need some yourself is a great help to anyone on this life changing journey.
