I've survived and progressed on next to no income for my entire training so far, if I had Â£10/$20 to spend on food PER WEEK I was lucky.
Any money I could scrape together went on gym membership and food (very cheap food) and very very little else. Even buying new socks was quite a luxury, haha. I would occasionally get gym memberships paid for as a birthday present or similar, but you get the general idea.
Having just qualified and soon to be earning, I'm just wondering if anyone in a similar position saw themselves break through onto the next level, simply by having more funds to eat more/higher quality food or anything else.
This isn't a case of "OMGZ now I canz afford NO-EXPLODE!!!" but simply a case of progressing from budget noodles/eggs/milk to big fat steaks and just generally having less stress and a higher quality of life.
