Welcome to MT.
I have to admit that I had to control myself to not comment on your typing style when I first replied.
I teach a lot of kids (music in case you were curious) and have to hear/read gangsta speak regularly.
I've seen essays written in text speak also- which is hilarious (instant fail).
It doesn't bother me per se, but you didn't come across as particularly intelligent, logical or even serious about body building. A lot of people come here asking similar questions- they usually last a few weeks and then you never hear from them again.
I answered because I figured you couldn't be as dumb as you came across, and it appears you are not so I am pleased.
You might want to work on asking specific questions- saying (for example) 'How do I train' isn't an easy question to answer but something like "What ratio of High Intensity Cardio to Weight training will get me the biggest size gains" is a question that can be answered (probably 20 different ways).
You get the idea.
A lot of your questions were too general to answer and/or you tried to tell us the answer and were looking for confirmation (re steroids).
However, it isn't my house though so I didn't comment.
Regarding the rest of your post, yes diet plays a very large part in body building.
Training is only an hour or so a day- eating right is a 24 (or 16) hour a day job.
£30 a week is going to be tricky- I spend around £100 a week but I don't have to monitor it.
I know others do it on a budget so I will let them comment on that part should they choose to.
I am less concerned with the timing of my cardio/weights.
I do my cardio in the afternoon and my weights in the morning because it suits me to do them in those times.
The single best piece of advice I can give is find what works for you.
There are some limits to what is possible (ie overtraining will result in poor results) but that aside you just need to do it. I do my cardio in the afternoon because I hate to do anything on an empty stomach or indeed particularly early.
Is ti worse for my training to do it in the afternoon rather than the morning?
Well it doesnt really matter- because I wouldn't last very long doing it in the morning.
Doing it in the afternoon is MUCH better than NOT doing it in the morning (if you get what I mean).
I know that I'll last about a week if I do my cardio in the morning- so I do it in the afternoon- and I do it 3 days a week without fail.
Weights are fine to do in the morning, for me about 10am. Works great. For me.
What works for me isn't good for you- so don't be afraid different things-mix it up and keep it interesting.
There are a lot of good articles on the forum that give you general information on how to begin.
Gud luk wit it, fo shizzle.
