although working out has singly been my favorite hobby of all time, i think its time for me to hang up the coat and just give up. i mean, its just so god damn expensive and time consuming to keep up with this lifestyle.
i not only have to pay for my car insurance (which is 4000 a year), but groceries as well, and i gotta admit its a bit tough with noone hiring me yet for part time work.
idk if i just want to casually work out and do all bodyweight exercises while not really eating a set diet and not caring about bulking or cutting cause i know for a fact that its killing me to balance the three most important things in my life: money, school, and working out.
i dont know what u guys think about it, but its a sad thought that i may end up completing later on.[/quote]
This post is pretty baffling to me, more so for what you leave out than what you say.
First off, what in the world is so expensive about the “bodybuilding lifestyle”? I need to get an idea of what you think this lifestyle is and what specific things about it are so pricey. There are tons of guys out there who have built great physiques without living in the lap of luxury.
Why are you having such a hard time balancing out school, money and working out? If your profile reads right, you’re a [i]high school student[/i] for God’s sake. You should have more free time than 99.99% of the people on this site, for one thing… which brings us back to the money piece.
A gym membership and groceries is just not the most expensive thing in the world, my friend. Plus, you can go with less expensive food sources and buy in bulk if you need to save cash.
And why in the world is your car insurance $4K a year? Do you mow people down at will Grand Theft Auto style?
