My Huel ‘experiment’ was never going to be a five-day all in blast, there are already more than enough of them online, and so I continue this week. Last week’s take away was taste above all else. In order to make this switch I’ve got to get a flavour that works for me. Huel provides […]read more »
This morning’s breakfast was Huel and coffee. Kinda worked, but like allot of things this week I could have a ether more coffee or a better/stronger one. Instant coffee just didn’t have a good kick. Looking back over the last few days a common problem has been lunch, I keep letting my self down with […]read more »
Said I wouldn’t, but I did anyway. This is definitely show a weight increase. It could be down to drinking more, almost twice as much as yesterday, but it’s probably cause I’m eating too much at lunch and dinner.
If I do switch to Huel next week for lunch at least that could take care of one meal. Maybe I should give myself more dinner calories too.
I’m only looking for a 500 calorie deficit which really shouldn’t be too hard, but easier said
We’ve made it to Thursday which means the weekend is now closer than yesterday. Which I suppose is always the case, but still it’s the principle. This morning’s Huel was fairly simple. 50g Huel powder and 250ml water, but I also added 60g frozen summer fruits. This time at least there was flavour so I’m […]read more »
As you can tell from yesterday I’m a day behind with my blogging so I thought today I’d consolidate Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday Only breakfast again, but this time I used a Strawberry flavour boost. Still a 50g breakfast of around 200 calories. I can’t say I really knew there was a strawberry taste. It […]read more »
This week I’m trying something new. Huel. I’ve read allot of blog where others have tried Huel for a week and report back how they’ve faired and I’ll be no different. I got my Huel delivery last Friday and am making a start this week. I’m starting slowly as I’ve found with most new fitness […]read more »
Yesterday I was finally able to honestly say I’d completed a full day. Recording from morning to night I have a honest reflection for the day. To be fair though it wasn’t a really good day, featuring too much junk but it’s a start. Today’s been a new day and got off to a good start. […]read more »
Last week I took a day off and here I am week later coming back to it. After a quick search I find common research seems to think it only takes 21 days to form , new habit, so adding it up if I can commit to my doing everything I want to everyday until Week 4 Day 3 then the habit should be formed…
Right? I’m sceptical but we’ll see.
The problem with going out for dinner is your tempted to eat more than you need, add to that a birthday dinner – even if it’s not yours – and your further tempted to eat still more since its a “special occasion”
Some time the deck really is stacked against the weak willed
Well if this week is about getting back into my routine and logging – thanks to MyFitnessPal and Nomie – then yesterday was a failure. Not only did I not out lunch or dinner, I skipped the cream egg and bag of crisps I enjoyed at lunch. Maybe today will be better, this is afterall why […]read more »
I’ve started and stopped this fitness thing so many times in the last few months I’ve lost track of where I am and sadly have little faith this will be the final restart. I’m also moving house next month and have been thinking that would be a good time to put this off till – […]read more »
I’ve been dabbling with my health for years now, but am at my most successful when blogging. See it turns out I need to be held accountable for my lapses and I know of no better way than recording my successes and failures here.
This is week Zero, it’s decided I need a week Zero as a prelude to week One too get myself setup and mentally ready since this is a big push.read more »
I have said before I want to start writing longer and more in depth articles this year, with the goal of one a month, now I’m almost ten days into January and I’m not sure what I want this month’s focus to be. I have a lot of ideas, but just too many to tie […]read more »
It’s come again, a new year brings with it a flood of new year resolutions. It’s far from original but in 2015 I’m jumping back on the treadmill and MyFitnessPal. I’ve been paying no attention to what I eat or do since getting back from last year’s skiing holiday, so with another skiing holiday fast […]read more »
No matter how hard I try today I can’t seem to stop snaking. Everyday this week I’ve been wasting 500 calories on snacks. I just wish I had any idea how to stop it since will power alone is getting me no where. I also have to think about how I’m going to increase my […]read more »
Well I’ve not been doing to well of late. The last two weeks have seen me spend more time in front of one computer or another than is healthy. From turning Excel into a poor mans relational database, to doing some long over due homework and finally rebuilding my primary server after a failed Ubuntu […]read more »
Another shocker today, I’m over my budget but only by 301 calories. The surprise is I slipped badly at work and snacked my way thru another late night. If you take the 885 calorie snacks out of my day I could have ended with 584 calories. People may be wondering why I’m focusing on the […]read more »
Another full day under my belt and for reasons I may never understand I am under my calorie budget. Breakfast I can say was a good day but after that things went a little off the rails. Lunch was delicious, but it was still a sausage roll and beans. Dinner fared no better. In fact […]read more »
