What do you value

When it comes to investing in your health and fitness, I often hear:
๐Ÿ”ปIt’s too expensive
๐Ÿ”ปI don’t want to drink my meals
๐Ÿ”ปI have kids in daycare/activities and can’t afford another expense
๐Ÿ”ปThe holidays are coming and we are cutting back
๐Ÿ”ปI can find something that is similar much cheaper
๐Ÿ”ปI don’t want to use it because it has cane sugar in it.
๐Ÿ”ปI can’t workout at home.

I know that we all have different budgets and I can’t tell you what you can afford, but it really comes down to whether you find value in it or not. When you go out Saturday night and spend money on drinks๐Ÿท, appetizers, dinner๐Ÿ, you find a way to afford it?? When you buy a new outfitย ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘œfor a ONE event, you find a way to afford it. When you go into Target for ONE ITEM, and come out with Aisle 12๐Ÿ›๏ธ, you find a way to afford it. When the latest iPhone/tablet/or whatever gadgetย ๐Ÿ“ฑ๐Ÿ–ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ“บcomes out, you find a way to afford it. Why isn’t the same thing for your health?ย ๐Ÿค”ย We find a way to afford other things because we find value in it….but why don’t we value our health?๐Ÿค”

When I first looked into this whole fitness thing and eating right, I thought “HOW MUCH….NOW WAY!!”ย ๐ŸคฏThe cost drove me away because that was the only thing I cared about….not what it could do for me, not what it provided for me….but how much it cost. After doing some research, I slowly started to make changes so that we COULD afford it.
๐Ÿ”ปI started planning out our meals instead of wandering aimlessly through the store and buying random crap.
๐Ÿ”ปI started preparing portioned meals instead of making too much food and having it spoil.
๐Ÿ”ปI stopped going through drive thru because I thought it was convenient and began using my crockpot on a regular basis.
๐Ÿ”ปInstead of feeling bad about wanting to make a change, I sat down withย Kenny Lawrenceย and told him how important this was to me and how BAD I really wanted it.

๐Ÿ‘‰I can’t tell you that $4/day is in your budget or not….but I can tell you that YOU can make ANYTHING happen!!! You just have to be willing to look inside and tell yourself that you can make the change!ย ๐Ÿ’ฏ
