Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
I'm having trouble with my diet cause well it's just too damn expensive to main a healthy diet in a thrid world country. When fast food is cheaper than fruits, then you know you're in shit. I would really like to start stcoking up on fruits but they're way too expensive. Eating healthy on the whole is just to expensive. The healthy cereals are expensive, the fibre enriched bread, the everything!
Also things like protein shakes are over priced as well. The main reason why for the past year I've been having little to no gains despite the intensity of my workouts. I won't lie though, I've been on and off with the weightlifting (another fricking expense)over the past year. Out of the 12 months, I've probably only lifed consistently for 3 or 4 months altogethe.
Right now the barbell weights that I have on is 25lbs (on each side) and I can only life 3, 4 max. I started the 7 weeks to 100 push up program to try to increase my strenght so I can get 8-10 reps out of it and move up to about 30lbs, hopefully more.
But I know my diet is keeping me back a lot. I have a good metabolism but nonetheless I'm a skinny fat in the stomach region.
