Welcome, mrivard! I'm a newbie too, so I won't try to offer you advice on lifting. I'm impressed by your cardio work, for sure. What is an 80/10/10 lifestyle? I'm sure everyone is blown away at how weak they are when they first start-- it will improve. I've been lifting for only 2 weeks, and I can already do a few more reps for squats, asst'd chin ups and dips.
Lots of luck in school! Are you taking it online or attending classes?
:)

I think 80/10/10 refers to % of calories from carbs/protein/fat

Welcome and good luck, OP!
