A few years ago I went through a bulking process, made some mistakes dieted down and then life got in the way. I had been telling myself for a while that I was going to get back into putting on size but things came up, along with not wanting to stuff myself again, and for a time did not care to put on the weight.
Now, the past 4 months I’ve been back to gaining (up 20#s), but of course now something major came up (wife lost her job).
Needless to say the budget is a huge concern, not conducive to eating tons of food. Now there are ways to keep cost lower, but as I’m sure some on here know I highly value quality food, so I don’t see myself making too many changes as far as buying conventional ground beef and such. I may be willing (short term) to buy some non-organic produce. I don’t want to debate the food quality issue, it’s something that is among my highest values.
What I’m wondering is if anyone has run into financial hardship while trying to gain size and what did you do?
One option I see is selling one of our cars, though it’s the “fun” car that I have plans for. For now I drive it at most 5x year. It’s a blast to drive, but don’t use it much. I’m a car guy and after I sold the one I had when I was younger, I regret it/ I’m not as attached to this car as that one, but I’m not sure. It is just a car and could always get another, but would suck to sell since I already have it.
Anyone care to share their thoughts/comments?
