Day 309 -Monday May 26th

Info: First off, Happy Memorial day - and a thank you to those that gave their lives for this country.

 That being said, got together with some friends today and cooked a massive amount of Canino's sugar, gluten, and additive free sausages on the grill...along with some other processed meats (friends aren't Paleo). Also made a huge batch of Paleo Slaw...because what goes better with grilling? It's that season again, and if you want to make a healthy alternative to normal sugar laden coleslaw you have to check out Paleo Slaw! It tastes just like the real thing, is healthy for you, and reports are coming in it will make you a millionaire just by eating it! ok well maybe not the last one, but the rest is true!!

that's a heck of a lot of meat!

Food Log:

Breakfast: Holland pie, pineapple

Friday, May 23, 2014

Day 305 - Thursday May 22nd

Info: Took it easy today, not a ton of motivation for some reason, think it may be because I was low on the 50-100 carb range yesterday (67 carbs). Going to try to keep it between 75-100 and see if that has any effect.

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Day 304 - Wednesday May 21st

Info: Got a good workout in again today before it was time to head to the BF test. Wasn't sure what to expect from the test, but I can tell you it is a lot more accurate than the last one I had done. Basically you get in a tank of water, expel all your air and the machine take a reading. Gives you your resting metabolic rate, body fat percentage, lean body mass, and daily expenditure for calories. I signed up for a follow up test so I can go back when the Whole360 journey comes to an end. This test also showed the bod pod test I had done was way off! (10% difference is HUGE!) I can live with the results I got, in fact it was a huge motivator!

I'll just put this here.......

Food Log:

Breakfast: Holland pie (new one with onion, celery and broccoli. Added some chili powder this time as well)

Lunch: Ground beef taco salad (iceberg) with OOM/hotsauce dressing.

Dinner: Ground beef taco salad (again) with OOM and salsa dressing, 2 TBS of Almond butter and 3 jumbo olives.

Snack: none
Exercise: Revisited the circuit workout I did last week for the heck of it, which in case you forgot was:

3 mins uphill climb on spin bike
20 x pushups
20 x crunches
 x 5 sets

Managed to cut about a minute off the overall time, AND I'm not waddling around like a 200 year old man because I'm so fricking sore!

Day 303 - Tuesday May 20th

Info: Tomorrow I go for my bodyfat test again since I think the first one was inaccurate. For those of you that don't know it said I was at 33%...which when I started this journey was true, in fact if I had to guess I would say it was more around 36-38%. Yeah that bad. When I went to get tested, I had lost 35lbs and could see can't see abs at 33% bodyfat. So I scheduled a re-test. Tomorrow we shall find out!

Got my little Paleo cave set up today too, pretty excited about it. Just added a new Kitchen Aid mixer to my arsenal! had an offer for a free meat grinder too, no more buying ground meats, get to make my own, and will KNOW what goes in them now!

Food Log:

Breakfast: Sausage link, carrots, celery, and a small iceberg salad.

Lunch: Burger patty, carrot and celery sticks, 2 TBS of almond butter

Dinner: Chicken fajita salad with iceberg, sauteed onions, green pepper and mushrooms. Ample amounts of hot sauce

Snack: none
Exercise: Went out and tried disc golf today with a buddy, always thought it would be kind of boring, found out it was pretty cool! There is a cool course near my house complete with water traps, snakes, prairie dogs, hawks, fish and frogs. Was a blast getting out there and chsing the discs all over and getting up close with some nature! Bet we walked 3 miles, and hucked some discs just as far!

Day 302 - Monday May 19th

Info: So I'm closing in on the end of my year long project, and I need to make sure that I am focused. Like laser focused. I've got roughly 2 months of the Whole360 left, I've got my eating dialed in as far as what works and what doesn't, I've figured out what carb range works best for me, and I've figured out that my back, being the a$$hole that it is, gets better when I work out or keep it moving. So really all thats left is dialing in exercise and making sure I stick to it. Just putting all this down on the interwebs to hold myself accountable. Here's to the final push!!

Always working towards the goal

Also wanted to mention a few others on here that have joined me on the Paleo journey, they have or just have started their adventure and are making some awesome changes! Besides that they push me and motivate me to keep going whether they realize it or not! So a big thanks to Jason Holland (Click to see his story!), Scott Lapaglia (has lost 70 lbs!), and my newest Paleo victim..shes known as Thorni. Thanks for coming along guys and gals your results are and will be amazing!

Food Log:

Breakfast: Holland pie

Lunch: Burger patty, carrot and celery sticks, 2 TBS of almond butter

Day 300 - Saturday May 17th

Info: Got to take the new pistol out to the range today and put it through some paces. Wow I've never shot a gun so accurate and controllable! The other cool thing is my 9 year old got to shoot her first 2 real guns today (I was 6 when I started shooting, so it was time for her) everyone says "Oh she shot a .22?" Yeah she did, but AFTER she tossed some 9MM rounds down range! So proud and hopefully she remembers it like I do when I got to shoot my 1st gun.

Later on when I was cleaning the guns, it took me back to my childhood....the smell of Hoppe's Number 9 cleaning solvent....gun people you know exactly what I'm talking about....

All good hits too! So proud!!!!

Day 296 - Tuesday May 13th

Info: Well much to the chagrin of ladies everywhere, my new girlfriend showed up today. Now usually I'll mess around with a few of my ladies from time to time but this one just plain took my breath away. Sorry ladies she's got my full attention for a while!!!! (All that really means is my competition gun finally is in my hands and I LOVE IT SO FAR!) LOL had to be dramatic though to make it interesting!

I give to you the CZ 75 ACCU Shadow Lite in 9MM

So for those of you that have no interests in firearms sorry but I'm going to gush a bit here in this post about this gun. If you do like guns and competition with them, please read on you will like this!


So what the heck is a CZ 75 ACCU Shadow lite?

Well if you don't know let me learn ya!
It starts as a CZ factory Shadow pistol which is an upgrade over just a standard CZ 75...I won't get into all the upgrades over stock, but here is what my particular gun comes with and why exactly it is so bad ass.

  This gun comes with the following "pimpery"

This is with a 9MM Pistol!!!!
  •  Drop in short disconnector (shortens trigger pull)
  • Hajo competition rear adjustable sight
  • Dawson fiber optic front sight
  • Extended firing pin
  • Lighter firing pin spring (makes trigger light)
  • Custom competition hammer
  • Stainless steel guide rod
  • Tuned trigger (lightens trigger pull)
  • CZC Short reset trigger
  • 13lb main spring (lighter trigger)
  • 11lb recoil spring (lighter trigger)
  • Profiled slide stop (can use many different ammos)
  • Thin custom CZ grips
  • ACCU barrel bushing (makes gun very accurate)

  • ACCU Stainless reverse plug

Now that may all be Greek to you, but what that means is out of the box I can take this gun set up a target at 50 yards and shoot a 3" group with it from a rest. It's a 9MM pistol, they generally can't do that!!! Also with the tuning I get a really smooth roughly 6.5lb double action trigger pull and a 2lb 8oz single action, in other words totally sweet!

Food Log:

Breakfast: Holland pie topped with about 2oz of seasoned ground beef

Lunch: Holland pie with side salad of iceberg lettuce with OOM/hotsauce dressing

Dinner: 4 Paleo tacos with Paleotillas, lettuce, ground beef, salsa and hot sauce

Snack: none

Exercise: none

Day 295 - Monday May 12th

Info: Well I've been waiting for my new competition gun to come in, and wouldn't you know it IT'S HERE IN DENVER!!!! the issue is the gun store I used to transfer it to me is closed today!! DAMN ITTTTT! So one more agonizing day of waiting!

That's OK though not all is lost lol, still kicking butt at the Paleo game and may even have found a way to make a living off it! More on that to come if it materializes into anything.

We do Paleo chiiiicken right. We call these Pterodactyl toes!
Food Log:

Breakfast: Holland pie with broccoli, celery and onion. Added extra salsa this time around to give it some zing

Lunch: Taco salad with ground beef, iceberg lettuce, sauteed onions and peppers.

Dinner: Paleo chicken fingers - chicken breast strips coated in egg and then "breaded" in almond flour and baked. Made a  "Ranch"dipping sauce out of dill OOM and hot sauce. Also had side salad with grilled romaine lettuce, no dressing.

Day 293 - Saturday May 10th

Ate in the car, but hey it went in my face so we'll call it good. The Classifiers hate me pretty hard, but I did manage to get 2 2nd place finishes overall in production division so I'll take it. I managed to move up a class as well. I was shooting for 2 classes but I really need to practice more to get there. I'll take my bump to the next class though! I will just have to buckle down and make sure I get the practice in to keep moving on!

Info: Today was prep day for the USPSA Super Classifier (this is a special match where you can shoot certain stages all in one match to try and better your division. Generally there is one classifier stage per regular match and it takes a while to change divisions) The super classifier takes care of your classification all in one match. Never have shot one of these, but I have been trying to get a classification since I started shooting USPSA 2 years ago. Got the gear all ready, can't wait till tomorrow!

Tomorrow may be the last match I shoot with my trusty Springfield Armory XDM though, which does make me a bit sad she's been a great and reliable gun but my new one should be in Colorado on Monday!

Could Saturday be her farewell appearance?

Day 291 - Thursday May 8th

Info: Have been looking for something to help out with interval training and a friend suggested a spin bike. I had no idea what that even was until last week, but it looked to be promising so he helped me search Craigslist and find a used one. New these things are almost $1000 and no way that was gonna happen. So I lucked in to one for $60. I figured its gonna be rough, cause I mean $60? I was nicely surprised! Its in like new condition, has extra brakes/tensioners and was really well cared for! Plus its Navy blue (I'm a huge Michigan fan so its perfect!) and an upgraded seat. Now all I need to get is a rower and some OLY (Olympic) lifting stuff and I am set!

My $60 investment.....SCORE!

I put it to the test for 20 minutes today doing intervals of 3 mins on and 2 mins normal pace, these things are no joke, I was fricking gassed and my legs were jelly.

Info: Got my workout on today despite a slightly sore back, I figured all it can do is get worse right....OR or it could get better....after the workout I was pain free, it was AWESOME. I did stretch to make sure it wouldn't get hurt before and after the workout so maybe that helped, but I was excited that it held up!

Today it was rough, back was stiff, but I got through it and seems to feel better so far. Over the next few weeks we will see how it goes.
