    I may well see how my funds go after not wasting so much and after a year see if I can get into this sort of stuff.

    In the meantime I’ll read up on it and familiarise myself with what’s what.

    Is there anywhere in particular I should look to educate myself?

    There’s some great YouTube videos called Financial Education & Learn to Invest that are absolutely brilliant. Also a guy named Graham Stephan who doesn’t do stocks but is all about being clever with cash.

    I read Tony Robbins money book which is a little US centric but worth a read and once you start getting a feel do what I did. Give yourself an imaginary 10k and pick 10K worth of pretend stocks and do a dry run for a year. Act like it’s real money on real stock and you’ll learn a lot!

    I hear you brother, I hear you! It’s unnecessary spending because we don’t need any of that shit. I’m exactly the same. What I will say though is don’t beat yourself up too much about it if those things bring you some form of joy. I love buying coffee when I’m passing through town. I also love sitting in with a brew and biscuits watching my Acca fold on soccer sat. It’s life innit. I know consumerism isn’t great and we should save our money etc, but if it makes you happy for a bit, do it. We all graft hard.

    As a caveat to that, if you are crying as you hand over your money at the till maybe it’s time to make a change haha

    I’d give yourself one cheat day next Saturday :).

    I suppose I’ve sort of had a lifestyle change myself in the past 12 months, I’ve gone down from 18 stone 11 to my current weight 16 stone 10. Generally my diet is good apart from 2 day binges every couple of weeks which seems to be the thing halting any further progress.

    I started Insanity max 30 two weeks ago and have lost 5ibs in this time so other than tomorrow, the FA Cup final and the nations league they’ll be no beer for me. Aiming to get under 16 stone in the next six weeks which shouldn’t be too unrealistic. I’ve always been pretty fit compared to my weight which helps with intense workouts.

    How’s this been going for you? I’m saving for a house myself and the amount of rubbish I spend my money on is ridiculous.

    Well I’ve not been spending any money recently because watching City has cleared me out completely haha.

    I have 80p to my name until payday next Wednesday!

    I’ve also not started the ‘getting in shape’ yet as I’ve had this chesty cough for a month and was waiting until that went.

    Think I’ll be doing all this from after the FA Cup final next week. Get it all going over the Summer. May as well now I’m single and don’t have any responsibilities other than work and bills and no plans until August over the football off-season.
