Day 342 - Saturday June 28th

Info:  Today is ECOIDPA day! I planned a pretty cool match for all the shooters today, we followed an AC/DC theme! While I wanted to have some music blaring while we shot, I couldn't find enough CD players to make it work how I would have envisioned so we just went without it. Lots of fun to be had, and a day on the range is about as good as you can get, well unless the range was next to the ocean in a 75-80 degree climate with a slight breeze, on the beach, next to a giant bbq grill....yeah anyways today was fun!


Fun stages to be had by all.....


Food Log:


Breakfast: Chicken thigh and a few carrot and celery sticks

Lunch: Grazed throughout the afternoon on chicken thigh, olives, apple chips and almond butter

Dinner: 2 avocados worth of guacamole mixed with diced chicken and hot sauce

Snack:  none

Exercise: 8 hours running and walking around the range - at least 4 miles.

DAY 342 COMPLETE
Day 341 - Friday June 27th

Info:  Had a lady come to my house for a physical and blood draw for life insurance today (exciting stuff I know) the best part about it was that she is a health professional and had never heard of a Paleo type diet. She was asking me what it was, and looked kinda lost as I explained it. I understand that meats, vegetables, fruits and nuts is sometimes confusing and all but sheesh! Then after I explained that I don't eat grains, breads or processed foods, she looks at me with a sort of shock and awe look on her face and asks "Well how do you get your carbohydrates then if you don't eat grains or bread?" Now I don't mean to insult anyone, but if you don't already know that carbohydrates come from fruits and vegetables.....Well let me tell you now, Carbs come from fruits and vegetables. There we are square on that now. I looked at her and I said "I get them from fruits and veggies." It looked like I kicked her in the hoo-ha. The FDA and everyone that preaches the grain grain grain diet has a lot of people in the dark on this one still! You can get plenty of "way better for you than processed food or grain" carbs from fruits and vegetables. in fact that's all you need! If you don't believe me, take a look at my before and after pictures and make the decision for yourself! Fix your diet and it will fix a lot of the issues you may be having.


You should NOT eat at least 6oz of grains, and you should not worry about if they are whole grains nor not! Eat fruits and veggies instead. You're welcome!



Food Log:


Breakfast: No breakfast, had to fast for my physical and blood draw

Lunch: Grilled Cajun chicken thigh, celery and carrot sticks, organic apple chips and almond butter

Back is still tender but it is getting better. This "old" that people speak of sure does suck! I remember when a sore back was like "Rub some dirt on it and get back out there" Now its like "Oh geeze do I need amputation? Crutches? Surgery?" LOL damn.

Day 335 - Saturday June 21st

Info:  Found some glorious stuff called Battle Balm in Paleo magazine a few days ago - its a balm for MMA fighters and for people who play contact sports. it is supposed to help relieve pain and heal damaged tissue, so i figured I'd give it a try on my back. They have several different types, and I went with the strongest. It isn't a cure all, but it sure does soothe the ache, I will say that. It's pricey but so far worth it! If you are looking for something for sore muscles, check it out! Also back seems to be healing faster than in the past, the pain is going away quicker, so I am pretty sure I just pulled something slightly.



So much win right here in this little tin......



Food Log:


Breakfast: Steak and broccoli - because why not!?!?

Lunch: Big salad with iceberg, mushroom, onion, black olives, bacon, and boiled egg. Olive oil and vinegar for dressing


Dinner: Seasoned ground beef taco salad with hot sauce for dressing

New Recipe Alert!!!

Paleo Pulled Pork!!! I had a bunch of pork loin roasts and needed something delectable to make with them. Decided some pulled pork sounded about right! Surprised myself with this one, it almost tastes like a slow roasted BBQ pulled pork. The kicker is that there is no BBQ sauce in it! Its quick to prep, easy to cook and will feed you for days!

Day 324 - Tuesday June 10th

Info: Well I have officially outgrown what weights I have in my basement and went on a search to find a gym to join. I like CrossFit or at least most of CrossFit, but since I am balling on a budget (a very tiny budget) I can't afford to sign up at a box (CrossFit gym for those of you non CrossFitters) Found out there is an Anytime fitness near my house and went and checked it out. The manager is really cool, and said I could use the bumper plates they have there and do CrossFit type workouts as well so it's kind of a win-win! I can program my own stuff and go workout Anytime (See what they did there - Anytime fitness - anytime. Clever bastards) It's not that expensive at $30 a month and I can grunt and groan and throw stuff if I need to without getting yelled at. Plus I am cancelling cable as soon as the Stanley Cup Finals are over, so just rerouting my $$ into getting Swole! Excited to get started and really kick my transformation in to gear!


On another note, does anyone else still play with their food? The way I do it now is much more sophisticated than when I was say 9 years old, but still... I was chopping up carrots and immediately it reminded me of this:



Logging operation anyone? LOL
I'm not going to lie and tell you that I didn't pretend to be a giant wood chipper as I was eating the carrots ........

Not too bad for a fun day at the range. Didn't get anything crazy cool from the prize table but did win my division! Now I just need USPSA to update their classifications so I am in the division where I belong. Yes I'll admit it, this trophy was a bit of sandbaggery, but there isn't anything I could do about it.

Shot good, made some mistakes but nothing that I don't think would ruin my chances.....at least I hope not! The motto for the match is "We'll melt your trigger finger!" and they mean it!!! After a few stages I had such bad forearm pump it felt like I just got done working out! No extra exercise today because we walked/ran over 6 miles on the range today! Check out the vid below....time to hit the gas! All the stages were named after Metallica songs this year (each year its a different band) The vid below is of stage 1 - Nothing else matters.






At the end I could barely pull the trigger! I had the fastest time in our squad on this stage, and I even made a few mistakes...going too slowly at first, bobbled a reload, over ran a stop point etc. Was happy with it though, and its A LOT OF FUN!!!!!
