Is Your Fitness Budget in Shape?

3 Minute Read

Most of us want to be healthy. We want to eat right and be in shape—not only for ourselves, but also for our families. The truth is that our intentions and our actions don’t always line up.

But part of your legacy is how well you take care of yourself. It’s not just how smart you are with money.

Taking control of your money and taking control of your body both require something many of us struggle with—discipline. Behavior modification works the same for both our money and our fitness. Cutting back on your spending and saving more is not a far cry from cutting back on your calories and sweating more. It’s a mental shift and a lifestyle change.

Hopefully Dave’s plan has inspired you to go after your money goals. So how do you find the motivation to lose that extra weight and get fit?

Here are four keys to achieving your fitness goals:

1. Believe You Can Do It
You’ve got to be confident that the work you put in is worth the effort.

2. Take Baby Steps
We do 30 sit-ups and we’re disappointed we don’t have a six-pack. Focused intensity over time does it. If you’ve listened to Dave for any time, you’ve heard that one. Get your emotions involved. Get angry about it!

3. Log Your Workouts
It helps to see your progress over time on your computer or on paper even before seeing real progress in your body. Just like with budgeting, it usually takes a few times to get it right.

4. Know You Can Afford It
Gym memberships are crazy expensive. Facilities are also usually crowded, smell like your old high school coach’s office, and there’s always that one guy who’s more muscular than you. How do you avoid all that? Well, here’s a thought. Don’t work out in a gym. You can work out at home, a hotel, or practically anywhere.
