How do you all deal with hobby's and "Leisure" money? Does anyone else here lift or go to the gym often?

I feel like sometimes my goals are so hard to reach because I spend alot of money on my BODY goals. My current spending as of right now:

Protein - $120 per month
Pre workout- $50 per month
Amino Acids/Vitamens $50 per month

Althought $220 per month does not seem like much, I'm not including a gym membership, new workout clothes, gloves,weight belts, shaker bottles, blenders, food, chalk ETC.

It's so hard for me to save money, but I feel like my body is most important to me, I feel healthy and fit. I always feel energized and stay in a good mood throught my rough days. Can anyone give me some advice or tips to cut down on spending?

How much do you spend on the following:

Rent/Mortgage
Utilities
Groceries
Eating Out
Cell Phone
Internet
Cable/Satellite
Entertainment
Gym Membership
Car Payment
Car Insurance
Health/Life Insurance
Credit Card (Balance, Interest, Minimum Payments)

Consider using http://www.mint.com to track your expenses and see what your expenses were for last month.

Then we can help you see where your money is going and ideas of what you can cut.

Also, two questions:

1. How much do you bring home a month (your take-home pay)?

2. How much do you have in savings (your emergency fund)?
