Hello. I’m partysquidge. Huel is on it’s way, arriving tomorrow in fact. So you meet me at the beginning. I’m on my fourth pot noodle of the night.
Yes, as a 21 year old student who loves going out and quite frankly, getting mashed to fuck, my only means of human fuel is pot noodle and beer. So why am I changing that? (no, seriously, why…?)
I’ve known about Huel for a while, I’m a screenwriting student and I started writing a short film about a man who hated the human race so much he decided to try and murder every single person and preserve the planet. I wanted him to be sympathetic to the earth and looked up ‘crazy vegan diets’. Huel was on the list. I liked the idea. I considered giving it a go but that idea flopped, along with my short film. See, I’m just not the most committed person. So…why?
Over the last year, I have put on a stone from drinking too much and eating crap. Being a student, really. It isn’t as if I’m overweight, I just know I put it on in the wrong way. Throughout my life, I’ve always been pretty confident and found self love… but I’ve also fantasised about being this skinny model that remembers to dye her roots and drinks white wine spritzers with other skinny models and not only gets asked out on dates but has to turn them down. I guess that’s where I’ve gone wrong, being the awkward beer drinking idiot that I am, I’m incredibly far from this miraculous transformation. So none of that. No putting myself down. I just would quite like to be my ‘normal’ weight. (I have spoken to my doctor about this and everyone has their own BMI etc so please do not base yourself on me)
So, I’ve got a plan. And here it is.
THE MOTHERFUCKING PLAN OF ACTION
- Replace breakfast & lunch with Huel
- Cook myself a nice evening meal from scratch (no pot noods)
- Try…try and do 10,000 steps a day
- Cut down massively on beer
- Use this post as a blog to honestly track how it’s going and how I’m feeling
- Maybe I’ll go on a date
So weighing in at 10.9 stone/ about 70 kg, I am aiming for a stone less. I’ll regularly update on here.
Tomorrow it begins. I have finished my final pot noodle. Goodnight.
(p.s would love to hear from you fellow huel folk for advice/general chat)
