Week 2 of LGET NC 2.0

Not sure what I think of the rest of you not posting, but ok, my points for the week are 51. It did not help that I had two birthday parties with cake and a lot of pressure from a very cute 9 year daughter. I have not sent an email out but we are doing to do the R2R2R  About mid march of 2014. We should have a big group, so far I have9 firm commitments

LGET Nutrition Challenge V 2.0

Week one down the math is much easier on this one. The three times a day and non zone makes for far less figuring.  I got all 57 points. Work out intensity is not there though. Its good to see Brandy Doug Join in. A little bit of me dies inside every time I sit down and eat and have to cut the fat off. Here is a pic of us at the 2013 Market to Market Relay team.  We crushed it this year with a time of 10:37, which was 27 minutes better than last year.

Way to Go Jamie, Jena, Joe, Cade and Molly

Mountain climbing is more than just a physical activity it is also a great way to bond with your family and friends. Do not be discouraged if you can't make it to the top on your first try. Just keep going and you will make it.

Team Gym!

Working out and staying in shape is an important part of being a Landmark team member. In this short video you will get a tour of the gym that all team members and business partners have 24 hour access to, a little bit about why we use it, and learn a little more about Landmark. Staying in shape should be on everyone's list because it will lead to an overall better lifestyle. You will have more energy, want to be more adventurous, and learn to love yourself a little more.  


Everyone gets stressed out in different ways and for different reasons. When most people are stressed out it is because they are overwhelmed with the amount of stuff that they have to finish. For example a college student with a job can get stressed for many reasons; some of which include- not enough sleep, too little time for homework, no time for friends, or just all around busy. Little kids get stressed out when they cannot figure out how to tie their shoes or do NOT want to eat their vegetables. Here is a little video from Dave about stress. He talks a little about how to make your life a little less stressful and a group of people who live almost completely stress free lives.

Dave's Week 5

I had a great week, I only screwed up on one meal, the rest of them I nail it. My pulls ups and bench press(to bad that does not count) are getting better. I have actually gained half a pound but my body fat is down significantly, don't know how much yet. I only got two nights of 8 hrs of sleep, but the rest are between 7:30and 7:45 hours The peppers from Costco are a gift from God. I got 208 points for the week and 1024 for the competition. Because Joe is only missing the sleep, it will be hard for me to catch him. But I will be close. I should do well in Cindy, and maybe the run. The back squat is a mixed bag. 

Nutrition Challenge Week 5

Two weeks left and I am ready for this to be over. Week 5 points: 213 Total competition points: 1035

Dave Paladino week 4

I have learned a few things about this challange
1. You must go to bed hungry or you will not win
2. If its in your house you will eat it
3. The peppers from costco are a gift from God
4. If you do not leave the house with a plan each morning you will not do well.  
I had three meals where I lost control. Two I was able to keep paleo. We went to IHOP last night and I simply did not get enough carbs. When I got home, there was cake from Krystal's baby shower and it was basically over.  Lisa had to pull me off the cake. It was worth it though.  I ended up not that bad, looks Like I am right behind Joe  201 for the week 816 for the total competition.

Nutrition Challenge Week Four

This was probably the hardest week for me so far. I am constantly feeling hungry and fatigued. I struggle with playing two hours of Frisbee and all I can think about is food. Tuesday night I had a spectacular cheat meal and felt pretty good on Wednesday. But by Friday I was feeling like I needed another cheat meal. We tested ten minutes of Cindy and the 800 run Friday night and I had the following results: Cindy + 32 reps, Run + 12 seconds. That is a net gain of 20 points although I did not test back squat I think it has gone down. I am looking forward to seeing what the competitiveness of the final test does for performance. This weeks points 207. I have to subtract four points from last weeks points due to some bad math last week, so my points for Week three are 203. Total competition points: 822

Nutrition Chalenge Week 3

I had a rough week: Completely forgot the fat in two meals, forgot my fish oil once, missed the sleep more than I got it, went more than five hours without eating twice, and ended the week with a 2800 Calorie cheat meal. My points for week three: 202 Total competition points: 619. Keep up the good work everyone we are almost half way done.

Challange Week 3

Here is an update  on me, I continue to do well except for the sleep. I was at an all time low this week with only 2 nights of eight hours of sleep. Because of plowing, some nights were only 5 hours(only three continuous).  I continue to have small accidents once a week. This week it was Lisa's famous Paleo meatloaf that did me in, I love you Lisa:)  No human can eat only 5 oz of that stuff.  I ended up the week at 208 and my total points are 605. We had alot of family in town this weekend for a funeral so we got a lot of people excited about the challenge the next time we do it. My goal this week is no accidents. Joe came up with the idea of a zone cheat meal. He had to use a excel spreadsheet to make sure the ratios were right. I am going to shoot for one next Monday, but my plan is to make it zone and paleo.  We had a great Frisbee game Saturday with another dislocated and broken finger in two unrelated collisions.  And no Joe was no involved in either one.

My Points and the Sleeping Rule

According to Lisa the sleep does not count as eight hours if you sleep four hours get up and tow cars and then sleep another four hours, so my adjusted total for week one with that in consideration is 210. My total for this week is 207. Total points for first two weeks of the competition 417. I have one question I would like general input on: What happens if you eat more than five meals?

Week 2 of the challange

Several of us had a great week.  Lisa and Joe are talking trash at every turn. I had one meal I had a melt down. I went nuts on almonds and grass feed butter.  I overslept a couple of times and ended with 8 hrs of sleep more often than I would normally. Dave's Total points for week 2 212 total points for challenge 407  . Also, the spreadsheet was a little hard to read and a couple of errors in it. You most likely uncovered them, but I will email you an updated one. Remember you have to give me total for the week and total for the entire challenge.

Dave week one

Week 1 Dave Paladino 195 pts
I cant seem to get 8 hrs in. I eat paleo 100% of the time,  Zone is harder to do. I missed a few meals. All the water, fish oil and workouts are easy. I learned that if you are not measuring your food, you are eating to much meat and not enough good carbs
