Paleo recipes: sardine pate, mackerel pate!

Not Just a Man's World
Not Just a Man’s World – Chris was after more calories in his day but wanted them to be good quality calories.  In particular he wanted to also increase his omega 3 intake, but he didn’t want to increase his salmon and tuna intake, which we already eat at lunchtime, alternating between them on consecutive days.  Fish can be problematic because […]

Paleo recipes: slow cooker meatballs

Not Just a Man's World
Not Just a Man’s World – I was in the mood to make something different with our mince one day this winter.  It struck me that meatballs in a thick tomato sauce can be really satisfying but I don’t normally both because they can be so tedious to put together.   The recipe below worked well although, as I anticipated, it took […]

Paleo recipes: minted lamb stew (slow cooker)

Not Just a Man's World
Not Just a Man’s World – Our regular supermarket started doing an economy pack of lamb pieces for stewing.  Since I was on a slow cooker push this winter but we wanted a change to always eating beef mince I decided to try making some lamb recipes.  The one below was probably the best but you will probably need to make […]

Physique progress 2013: week eleven

Not Just a Man's World
Not Just a Man’s World – Generally this has been a quiet week with some steady work going on and very little in the diary.  In reality, it has been an emotional rollercoaster of a week, which has affected both my HRV and my workout recovery. I had been hitting my diet a bit harder post-Christmas and reached a low early […]

Physique progress 2013: weeks nine and ten

Not Just a Man's World
Not Just a Man’s World – Merry Christmas and I hope everyone is having a Happy New Year. Indeed it was a very merry Christmas with far too much eaten and drunk.  I’ve been normalising my diet ever since, except for the bit when I was clearing any remaining junk out of the house for the New Year. For personal reasons […]

Physique progress 2013: week eight

Not Just a Man's World
Not Just a Man’s World – A more settled week for my general wellbeing, reflected in a steadier set of HRV readings.  Also a week of slight over-eating (well, over-eating on one day anyway when we celebrated Christmas with my parents) which has really picked up my metabolism for the whole week.  I feel warm again. I’ve also done some brain-storming […]

Not Just a Man's World
Not Just a Man’s World – A great week, both for physique and for strength. I finally hit the wall on my back squats and had to start doing a Hepburn cycle and I suspect I will be on a Hepburn cycle on my Glute Bridges from next week.  It was the first time in a very long while that I […]

Not Just a Man's World
Not Just a Man’s World – After two weeks of very little sleep I found that I was quite broken.  While I continued doing workouts and a few walks, there was almost nothing left in my reserves and I found getting out of bed increasingly difficult.  I tried to battle through a first week like that and actually ended up doing […]

Physique progress 2013: week four

Not Just a Man's World
Not Just a Man’s World – This was my second week getting up at 5am and working solidly through until 10-11pm.  By the end of the week it was really starting to take its toll.  While my training numbers and my HRV were surprisingly good I realised the genuine problem when I took a couple of nights away in York with […]
