So today I played a little trickery....on myself. I was craving Nachos. And I mean I WAS going to eat them no matter what. So what did I do? I made Faux-chos AND IT WORKED!!! So what did I do? I put the meat on a plate, buried it in lettuce, coated it in salsa and hot sauce, and dug in. I pretended it was really crunchy for the simulated "chips"......and it was glorious!

Yep Shooting competition time. And from what I have read in some emails it's shaping up to be a decent sized match!

Day 1 of the Whole360 Quarantine



Food Log:

 Day 183 COMPLETE

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Day 182 - Sunday January 19th


Info: Well I went MIA again, sorry for that, had to take an unplanned forced break from life basically as a stomach bug ravaged myself and my family.

Day 181 - Saturday January 18th


Info: So I woke up this morning, sore as hell from deep tissue massage, a little chiro work, decompression of my spine, and a new stretching regiment I'm doing...stumbled around a bit, and then decided "I'm gonna step on the scale: The rest is a visual for you all to check out;





O'Really????

I just joined selfie land....crap I forgot duck mouth!


 Day 181 COMPLETE
 
Day 180 - Friday January 17th


Info: Got the back looked at today, found out that since I stopped playing hockey regularly and competitively (and stopped stretching) I was down to about 30% flexibility in my hamstrings and hip flexors. The issue with that is, is that your back then does all the work, nerves get inflamed and it becomes a viscous cycle. I also learned that doctor that knows what he's doing can inflict much pain very quickly....but then it feels so good later (deep tissue massage) I have to go back and get some follow ups, but I am now at least working towards a solution!






Food Log:


Putting the "D" in delicious.....



Breakfast: 2 SF red pepper/spinach sausages, large mixed greens salad, OOM/hot sauce dressing

Day 179 - Thursday January 16th


Info: Since I am getting more and more in to the Paleo way of eating I have been thinking of how I can get more immersed in it, well today I took the next step. I literally went full Paleo, and while I learned a lot, I would not recommend it. A quick summary for you: Shots were fired, teeth are sharp, and raptors do not make very good pets......



Whole360 went full Paleo....and it was INTENSE!


Food Log:


Breakfast: Steak with a large mixed green salad, cauliflower, and Dill/onion OOM and hot sauce dressing.

Day 178 - Wednesday January 15th


Info: I am the first to admit that throughout my life I would find ways to work smarter not harder, and while that is a good plan 99% of the time, I have found that being healthy is that 1% where you want to work harder AND smarter. What does that mean? Well workouts.....I want to work harder, push myself and not use a machine to make myself feel better about the amount of weights I can move around. Think you are a bad ass in the gym? Try a CrossFit workout with body weight only, and when you are about to or already have barfed all over, ask yourself.....are those barbell curls really helping you all that much? Is your muscle functional or just aesthetic? If all you want is muscles that look good but don't work, by all means stop reading now, but I prefer muscles that look good AND work......hell of a concept there eh? And now to the smarter part....I cook in bulk, pre-package lunches etc. etc. so it's ready to go for me, I don't have the option of 'buying" lunch daily because I go in with the pre-conceived notion that my breakfast, lunch, dinner is already set for me. Not only does this fall under smarter, it also falls under "I eat a lot healthier than most everyone, its tastier than the garbage you are eating, and it cost about 50% less" Let that sink in for a minute.....healthier and it cost less? BULLSH*T you say? See my post coming up where I break it down in numbers for you all. It's possible, and I'm living it!



Food Log:


Hot Sauce Bath.......MANDATORY!
Breakfast: Salmon cakes with a large mixed green salad, Dill/onion OOM and hot sauce dressing.



Lunch: Salmon cakes with a large mixed green salad, Dill/onion OOM and hot sauce dressing.


Dinner: Salmon cakes with steamed cauliflower, hot sauce bath, and almonds for fat.







See a reoccurring theme here? These Salmon cakes are out of this world taste wise, and they are super portable, don't need to be reheated...etc I would eat them every day alllll day if I could!

Day 177 - Tuesday January 14th


Info: So I broke down and scheduled a doctors appt for my back. One of my friends suggested a sports medicine specialist, so I go and see him on Friday.

(I didn't get distracted or pulled away from the stove so I was able to pay attention!) and it was AWESOME!

Here it is in all its glory!


Food Log:


Made an awesome salad too!

Breakfast: Salmon cakes with a large mixed green salad, Dill/onion OOM and hot sauce dressing.

I did get some fresh OOM and bulk Salmon cakes made today, so that helped ease the frustration a bit, but still....come on back, get your sh** together!

I made 4oz cakes this time, so i don't try to eat 6 of them at once.

Delicious and natural! Date Paste!

DAY 163 - Tuesday December 31st



 
Info: Have been craving spinach salads with that warm bacon dressing that is in no way shape or form Paleo, so I looked up some recipes, and Paleo'd it. Not only was it delicious, it covers everything you need in a meal in one fell swoop! (Protein, Fat, carb and a ton of veggies!) Recipe will be posted for the dressing here shortly under "sauces" in the side bar, the rest is very simple!



Food Log: 


Breakfast: Spinach salad with chicken, onion, mushroom, hard boiled egg, bacon crumbles and warm bacon dressing done Paleo style.

Lunch feast!
    
Lunch: 3 Paleo-tilla tacos with ground beef, lettuce, and hot sauce. Also a side salad with spinach,onion, kalamata olives and mushrooms with warn bacon dressing.


Dinner: Spinach salad with chicken, onion, mushroom, bacon crumbles, hard boiled egg and warm bacon dressing.



Snack: frozen fruit and a Cherry Pie Lara bar. That was my New Years Eve badness this year..... a Lara bar with dinner, and frozen fruit around 10pm. I know not the best timing for the sugar, but I wanted some, so I had some.


Exercise log: None - Being New Years Eve and all I decided to take a rest day. Had some funky soreness going on with my shins, which was likely from playing hockey the other night, will see what it feels like tomorrow.
