>Plus, I dont want to go to him for help, I want to do this on my own, but I don't know where to start.Why...? You're already not doing it on your own by coming here and asking for help. It's okay to admit you don't know something and talk to your parents for advice and help. You said your dad is really in to it and has been forever, he sounds like the perfect person to ask besides some anons on an imageboard. Honestly you should check your ego and go to him if you really want it as much as you say you do.
$120 a month sounds expensive as fuck for only 3 days a week. If you really want to learn boxing, look around for different gyms and look to see if your school has a boxing club because it will be FAR cheaper. Our rate was $65 for the remainder of the year, no matter when you joined.
Just buy a gym membership and start going there. You can do a 4-5 day split if you're that motivated. Do back and biceps, chest and tris, legs, shoulders, cardio, body weight days. Do cardio every day that at least 10 minutes. 30 minutes is ideal, but do what you can.
I would just start out doing 8-12 reps with three sets in every weight training regiment and exercise. Warm up with 10 minutes of cardio before your work out and if you're up to it cool down with 10 minutes. After you do that for a few months you can start strength training if you want to because you'll understand form is everything and the amount of weight you can move doesn't mean shit if your form isn't good.
As for diet. Fruits and vegetables (what a surprise...), complex carbs like pasta, bread, and rice (just examples there are a ton more that are healthy). Carbs give your muscles energy and have the least amount of kcals per gram, besides water which is of course zero. Eat clean proteins like chicken, turkey, and some occasional beef (steak) if you want. The way it is prepared has an effect on how healthy the meat is too. Grilling and baking are two of the most healthy. Avoid fast food, processed food (canned shit or anything that has a long shelf life), anything deep fried, sugar, and high sodium diets. Drink lots of water. Make that your only liquid you consume and make it a habit to constantly be drinking water throughout the day. Carry a water bottle with you and refill it when you can or just buy a jug at a gas station and see if you finish it before you go to sleep. You should be peeing a lot and it should be close to clear. Don't over hydrate and chug water excessively, but just make it a habit to drink water.
Yoga is awesome and I enjoyed it when I had the ability to go. I was doing yoga twice a week, boxing twice a week, and throwing in some weights on another day or two if my schedule allowed me to. Look around for different yoga studios and see what they offer, who they cater to, and how much it is. I wouldn't pay for more than 50-60 a month though because I know I would not be going consistently and a lot of those places are stupid expensive because they know fools will pay for that shit. BUT if you join a gym, a lot of the bigger name ones will offer classes for free as long as you have a membership.
