45 DAYS UNTIL THE NUTRITION CHALLENGE IS OVER!!! By now you are 25% in (15 days). You should be passed the lethargic state. Everyone will adapt at a different rate, but this is your body reprogramming itself to the new primary energy sources. No longer is it relying on breads, starches and/or sugary grains, etc. you should feel like you broke through a wall and that extra kick of endurance is credited to the new eating habits. Keep it up!
September 3rd – Labor Day: Race to the Top of Mount Baldy. 7 mile trail run from 6,000′-10,000′ elevation. I’m registering for this race. I’d be stoked if anyone would like to join me from CrownTown.
September 8th: Tunnel to Tower Run in Corona. This 5k Run is a patriotic event acknowledging the sacrifices of firefighters, peace officers and our nation’s military service members in the name of Firefighter Stephen Siller who died saving others on 9/11. The proceeds will help build “Smart Homes” which are designed for our severely wounded veterans and also help to send care packages to our troops. Michelle P. is spearheading this event with interested participants to form a team of CrownTown’ers running together.
October 12th: Fitness Wave will be here Friday evening for the follow-up dunk. This date marks the end of the challenge. If you know you can’t make this date, please click on the link and schedule your follow up dunk directly with Fitness Wave ahead of time, as close to this date as possible.

ROD: Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf
Recipe courtesy of Caveman Strong via Bri Willette. By the way, this is one of my top 3 all time favorites. A repost, but well worth pulling out of the archives. Enjoy!
1 cup diced onion
2 lbs of grass-fed ground beef
1 cup almond meal
1 can tomato paste (organic)
1 tbsp crushed garlic
2 tbsp fresh basil
1 tsp marjoram
cracked black pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients in a food processor or by hand in a large mixing bowl. Place meat mixture into a large bread pan or a glass baking pan and form into a loaf. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until meat is no longer pink in the middle. From here the recipe is modified (that means not RX’d – lol) by Bri Willette…. instead of placing mixture into a large bread pan or glass baking dish take 2 packets of Applewood Smoke Bacon from Trader Joes and in an overlapping pattern wrap the bacon around the loaf shaped mixture. First wrap in parchment paper then wrap in foil. Place on baking sheet into oven for the suggested time of 1 hour at 350 degrees. After the 1 hour remove the foil and parchment paper and continue to cook the meatloaf untill the bacon is nice and brown. I continued to cook another 25 minutes or so. ENJOY!
