I did punch a whole in my wall not because of the creatine but because i was mad. That didn't work out my own parents actually charged me with criminal mischief so i'm not going to repeat that.
She tells me too bad when it comes to groceries and basically buys shit so i have to buy supplements so that I can get enough protein. Since I replace bfast with protein I asked for her to contribute $10 dollars a month, she flipped. I pay for all my own supplements.
I would steal back my creatine if I knew where it was.
I try to eat healthy as much as possible and I do a pretty good job, but I have to eat what she makes for dinner because it is for the family and i'm not special so i don't get to cook my own special meals.
Basically I have the eating thing covered but the creatine did help me alot. Whether it was psychological or physiologiccal I got a boost from creatine worth the $20 for a 3 month supply.
My mom is hard to talk to about lifting topics because she wants to be healthy and she is relatively healthy. The problem is she was educated about health during the height of the running is god and fats are evil period.
She tries to help me, but her suggestions are Oprah/Dr. Phil BS opinions. For example, "Jeff I read that new studies suggest you don't need to lift weights to get strong, you can just do bodyweight exercises and plyometrics", "Jeff I read that lifting heavy can make your tendons weaker", "Jeff you eat too much, that can overload your body with nutrients and then your body will extract less nutrients", "Jeff 50lbs is enough for anyone to exercise with", and my personal favorite, "Jeff I will not allow you to do free-weight squats anymore because they ruin your knees, you can either quit squatting or save up for a smith machine."
Now you all see what I'm working with. She's educated, but with the wrong materials.
