    I know there isn't some hard rule for it, but do you think you live a healthy lifestyle?

    Eating, sports, relaxing/stress reducing etc etc. I made some changes this past year, not sure how much I'll benefit but still.

    And if yes or no, why?

    I have a home gym so cardio everyday try to lift weights almost everyday I used to have such a deep love for fitness and did my best to look how I wanted but no time when you're a dad. I also used to eat very very healthy and clean but now I feel like I ruin whatever work I do put in by eating like s--- and try to tell myself "it's not to gain muscle or cut anymore but it's to stay the same" as in not gain weight etc. I feel like the dad bod is in but not where I want to be headed yet lol.

    I'm vegetarian, try to do 6 workouts a week (3 x fullbody with weights, 3 x cardio) and I rarely drink soft drinks anymore. I think I'm healthy enough. Once uni starts again I probably won't have much time for all the workouts tho

    Count macros and exercise during the week. The weekend is the polar opposite of that in the summer though

    My healthy lifestyle is like a f---ing rollercoaster quite frankly.

    Some months I'm super healthy and just east white meat and vegetables. Then I spiral and pig out on sugar and bread. Can't seem to find a happy medium.

    I'm in my sugar and bread phase right now. :emoji_frowning2:

    It was pretty healthy before I got covid in May tbh. Was doing intermittent fasting, making food at home, Measuring my protein intake and killing workouts.

    now I eat out and snack a lot. Still haven’t let go of lifting heavy though so I guess I got that going for me.

    Started working out at home about a month ago.

    I try to watch what I eat but I just can't seem to
    go more than a few days without cheating.

    I'll eat nothing but healthy stuff like nuts, vegetables, chicken, avoiding salt and sugar etc.. But then I get these uncontrollable urges to stop at a fast food joint and order burgers. Next thing you know I spend the next 2 days eating nothing but junk food.

    It's a work in progress. Despite that i've been seeing some gains from working out which gives me extra motivation to maintain a healthy diet.

    Alcohol intake is probably the biggest issue. That too is a work in progress lol.

    But all in all I feel like i'm slowly getting to a healthier lifestyle. You just feel great after a solid workout.

    What kind of equipment do you have?

    I've managed to do all of my workouts using only a set of dumbells, a bench and a mat.

    You have to be a little more creative but you can easily work on every muscle group using only a set of dumbells.

    I actually realised you could potentially say I have the most unhealthy lifestyle dependant on how you look at it;
    I'm exposed to blood and bodily fluids daily, along with people face to face in close proximity during a global pandemic
