I love this quote that @kayla_itsines put up. It's a big reminder that your health isn't something to take lightly. It's the reason you can enjoy your friends, family, hobbies, pets, passions, and helps you go to work and do your job. With out your health those things fall apart. •
I used to say I couldn't afford to eat healthy. Everyone else around me was saying it too. Until I found friends who said "I can't afford not to eat healthy." I never thought to prioritized it. •
Yes that means I had to change some things. I was prioritizing drinking, shopping and other non essential activities instead. But I spent time after being really sick wrestling with giving them up even though I knew my health was faltering. What changed my mind? Knowing that even if I kept things the way they were I couldn't continue to enjoy the things I was prioritizing over my health in the long run because I kept getting sicker and sicker. •
Be don't worry. It's not a one or the other thing. I still have drinks with friends, go shopping and enjoy other activities. But I balanced it out. I didn't need to stay in the party lane 5 times a week. I cut back and put that money to healthy foods. And believe me, cutting back on any of those things just a little made a HUGE difference in money and health. •
I'm not saying give up anything right now. Just think about where you could take from nonessentials and put toward health. Because health is essential to enjoy everything else. I'll be posting a blog on the biggest places I cut back on and found money to spend on eating better foods that was quite painless and I didn't even notice.
Have you ever gone through this and made changes to help you invest in your health or have you always placed a huge value on it? •
