    Aether I never did get big muscles from my efforts just fairly toned and fit.

    Is there contact in your BJJ class at this time ? My Aikido was 50-50 male and female, so working with the girls was a lot of fun.

      Keep in mind, your thirties aren't too late to start building your physique for real. Maybe you won't get the same results as if you'd have started ten years earlier, but you can still do a lot.
      And I think thinman and HellYeah made good points for moving more. It also helps with depression, so you would hit two birds with one stone. Or three. You get to move more, it might help you lose weight, and it will help with your depression.
      I wouldn't care about being disrespectful towards your superiors at work. They don't respect you, either.
      My vote still goes for sardines, tuna, mackerel and salmon for protein. Those fish are really cheap when you buy them in a tin and have excellent macros. I often eat a tin for breakfast and already have half my protein covered. Drink two or three glasses of milk over the course of the day. Have a good lunch or dinner (whatever your main meal is) that's made from unprocessed ingredients. There's a lot you can do for cheap that doesn't take much skill in cooking. I'm a terrible cook myself, but there's a few things even I can make.
      Innards, or offal (organs, you know) often are cheap because nobody buys them any more and offer a lot of bang for their buck. Just fry them in a bit of butter, salt and pepper, and you're good to go.
      Beans and rice are filling, easy to prepare, and with some spices taste really well. Beans are a good source of plant-based protein, also.
      Move more. Maybe there's a walking/running group you can join, for social contacts.

        thinman yeah we have contact but all the girls at the BJJ class are about 16 so I'm always careful plus they tend to try to keep bigger boys with bigger boys.

        lofivelcro I hear you and I am trying, right now I am dealing with possibly a build up of fatigue (5 workouts a week plus my job have me worn out). I have years of built up bad habits that I am working on starting with eating a breakfast. Lunch and dinner may take a while to get sorted but dinner is usually a slimming world meal so it's actually the best meal I eat.
        A walking group... I spoke with my shrink about that and there is one but there wasn't any updated information on their page but my brother and I are planning a movie night with mates from the gym (gonna see Venom 2: let there be carnage)

          Maybe you can find a nice spot outside you can walk to and chill out for a bit. A park with a bench, for example? Some rock outside where you can sit for a while? I think you get the idea.
          I'm curious about that slimming world thing... Are those pre-packed meals you just re-heat? Like Weight Watchers? I'm asking, because I've seen those in the supermarkets and they always were very expensive for what they offered. If that's the case with those meals, too, it might be an idea to look for alternatives you and your mom can cook yourselves. Could be fun, learning together how to prepare similar meals that cost less. I don't know how well your mother cooks, so apologies if she's already a good one.
          Do you have a bicycle or the option to swim in a lake or something? I'm fairly sure that being outside would help your mental health, even if it's just sitting somewhere.
          Good idea with the movie night. You could contact this walking group and ask if its still active, if you're interested in joining.
          Btw, you're doing good setting priorities and looking for how to reach your goals.
          Re: Job hunt and getting some movement in: What about your local post office? Are they looking for a post man, maybe? I had a friend in Scotland who got a job out of sheer luck by asking and he's never been happier.

            lofivelcro so slimming world is like weight watchers but mum cooks her own meals. I was thinking about a nice place to sit outside, I live next to a river that has a community park built on the bank so I could go there.

            I'll try contacting that walking group. I don't have a bike because I don't like cycling BUT I was watching a video last night that got me thinking "I might try getting back into that". Bookbinding, I used to practice a lot and I love books so it's definitely something I'm passionate about but I want to get into crafting in general.

            I am too shy to just ask for a job but it's coming up to the winter so I could try.

              Some years back and still working construction I did a 30 day Vegan Challenge which actually went on for 6 months, main thing is got me into healthy habits . . .

              You don't have to go 100% Vegan but the BIG advice (from experts) is predominantly plant-base.

              Aether I have an interesting Chinese bound book, the pages are printed on one side and are folded sheets (not separate pages) then bound with string.

                thinman that sounds like a common style. I recently watched a video where a Norwegian woman made a 600 page, 5kg book from the game I Curr play. The book is called "wine and song" and is a catalyst weapon.

                    I had the same problem when I was starting out. Here's a thought that helped me, maybe it helps you, too: In most cases, the people you ask for a job, either by mail/letter or by talking to personally/over telephone are interested and will follow up, or they're not and will forget you immediately after. In both cases, you don't lose. You can only win, and that is a job. And social gains. Because everytime you interact with someone, you get practice. And that's a good thing.

                    Good to read about those slimming world meals, I was picturing these tray dishes you can buy in supermarkets

                      thinman nice that's callef Japanese stitching and I actually really like that stitch, very aesthetically pleasing.
                      Glad you liked the book, I love the style and the game it's from so I hope to maybe one day, recreate it.

                      lofivelcro I will try to do that but no promises.

                        Here (Canada) most hire through temp agency's. My daughter who visited Britain signed up with one and got called an hour later. She stayed for 6 months and was able to visit European countries using Brighton as a base..

                          Yo, no need to make or not make promises towards me, you only have yourself to answer to. Just keep it in mind, maybe it will work for you. Good luck.
