    Hi Man of Kent;
    Glad you are doing so well on the plan. Are you getting some good results?

    I am particularly enjoying your links to parks / photo of hill sprinting.

    Are you the chef or is your girlfriend, or both? Food looks lovely!

    Hey MissBlue,

    Thanks for your encouraging comments! Glad you're enjoying the links, photo etc, hopefully there will be more where they came from in due course. I'm the chef mainly, my girlfriend cooks pretty well too but she has less time to cook with her job though (school teacher so has to bring lots of work home) so she gets involved when she can. Both of us just enjoy home cooked food though really. If you're interested in some of the food we cook check out my blog which is linked in my signature, I'm trying to put at least one recipe a week with photos on there.

    I've been Primal for nearly a year now but only started keeping a journal pretty recently. I've had awesome results since going Primal though. I've been interested in fitness, nutrition etc for pretty much my whole adult life but despite hitting 30 last year I've never been in as good shape as I am now!
