I am a long time lurker, long time irregular huel user, but first time poster. I decided that I would like to keep a journal of my fitness journey, and hopefully the weight loss that will go with it. I plan to use Huel as a staple part of my fuel on this journey and have been enjoying it for lunch every day for the past couple of weeks.
Ok, before I start, a little bit about me…
I am a 43yr old mom of teenage boys. I have always been fit and healthy, slim and active with no need to count calories until, in the summer of 2016 I started to get regular reoccurring eye inflammation problems. These bouts of inflammation increased in regularity and got worse over the next couple of years. Doctors tested me for all sorts of autoimmune diseases but nothing definitive was found. In January 2019 I took matters into my own hands and went gluten free and this literally turned my life around. I still get the odd flare up but nothing like what it was. 2019 was a year of learning to eat differently and healing.
So fast forward to 2020. I’m now possibly about a stone over my comfortable weight. BMI wise, I’m still just in the normal bracket but at the top end. I don’t know for sure what I weigh because I’ve not weighed myself in years. I am back working out regularly and I do HIIT and body combat style training 6/7 days a week with some yoga thrown in for active recovery. I have just started a food diary and I’m tracking my calories in and out. Tomorrow I’m going to weigh myself.
So…the next step for me is a bit of accountability and maybe some support. I would quite like to post weekly with a bit of a roundup; how the week went, training, food, Huel, weight loss if any, how I’m feeling mentally and physically. Hopefully I can get to know some of you a bit better along the way too.
I will post again tomorrow with my first check in and my starting weight.
I’m guessing 68kg…
