Money…does it stop you??

Posted on November 26th

So after a recent survey I done asking people what there biggest struggles where…I decided to do some articles based on all the topics and hopefully give you some tips.
Topic 2: Money
So this Topic is all about the money….and it can be a barrier in a LOT of people starting that health and fitness/diet (whatever) routine…..but it doesn’t have to stop you.
Yes it costs money to attend a gym/attend a class….but that isn’t the only way to keep fit and healthy
Here are my TOP TIPS on staying Fit on a budget:
* Get the park….it’s FREE and working out outdoors feels amazing….yes get to the park, go for a walk, a run or just do some exercises in the green space
* YOUTUBE…I mean we have the internet and YouTube is jam packed with workout videos from people….and ME I have 100s of FREE workouts on YouTube – so check them out here:
* Use the workouts from YouTube and do them at home/in the park….or get a gang of friends together and workout
* WALK….the most under-utilised form of fitness….seriously a good walk does wonders for the soul as well as the body
So lets talk about FOOD (or diet)… people always say “eating healthy is so expensive”….I prefer to see it as “why is junk/crap food so cheap??”… you dont have to have big elaborate meals to be able to be heathy and lose weight
Here are my TOP TIPS on eating well on a budget
* PREP PREP PREP….yes I go on about it all the time but coking in bulk and prepping for the week ahead…saves serious ££ and time
* Cook in bulk and freeze….that includes soups/stews/curries….cook it all up, lash in tubs and pop in freezer..hey presto
* Only buy what you NEED and not what you want…..and making a shopping list really helps
* Recipes galore…online now it is an unlimited resource for everything and there are soooo many free recipes online….or sign up to my FREE Newsletter/Facebook page and I always post lots of recipes
* Buy frozen fruit/veggies for your smoothies…..or make up ziplock bags of fresh fruit and veg and freeze them and pop into the freezer and take them out when needed…saves them going to waste and you have smoothie bags ready to go (time saving too)
Health, Fitness, Nutrition and Wellness doesn’t have to be “expensive” or costly…you just have to be savvy and be willing to put the work in…..there is so much out there now….so stop using money as an excuse
