    Alright, so I am extremely excited that my school has moved us (the students) to downtown SLC. With our tuition they've given us membership to a local Planet Fitness just a block away.

    I've been looking at this plan for reference:

    Now.. Everything is in order to begin my transformation, however I am still very unsure and hesitant to begin.

    I do not know what to purchase as far as foods / supplements that can fit my student budget of $100 a month. This would be stuff that is good for me, will help me with my goals, and isn't Ramen!

    I took a look at the meal plans, but all it did was confuse me more than help me. :/

    Anyone have a good conversion table or something that could lead me into the right direction as far as good, healthy, and tasty foods are concerned? (Supplements as well)

    I've no known allergies if that is a concern.

    Hey, congrats on getting a gym membership. I did this strength foundation plan about a year ago (although I didn't stick to it for 12 weeks). Looking back, it is a fairly decent program, but I would skip (or do less of) the cardio if you are not trying to lose weight.

    Don't worry about getting everything right at the beginning. If the meal plans (there is meal plan for this workout, how come I never noticeicon_confused.gif) are confusing, just start with the workout plan first. As you get more appetite, choose food that are healthy, and as you continue to read more about nutrition and stuff, eventually eating will be less daunting.

    It is more important to let go of your hesitation now and just start on something. Procrastination is our worst enemy here. If you have not lift weights before, start light but complete the routine (even if it feels too easy). 10 mediocre workouts are definitely better than 1 superb workout and 9 skipped ones.

    Good luck! And feel free to PM me if you want to keep each other in check.
