Shopping for a New You!

On Sunday afternoon I spent a good part of my late morning/early afternoon doing some much needed shopping. After many years of being fairly frugal and not really buying too much for ourselves, I sometimes struggle to spend money on certain items. I have really become quite the bargain shopper and big price tags scare me. I will spend hours looking for a good deal and prefer to shop in the clearance section! This being said, I had quite a bit of money to burn and was on a mission to get some good deals!

As I was shopping that day, I got to thinking. All around me there were people spending money on so many frivolous and material items. Designer and name brand handbags, shoes, clothes and whatever else you can think of. While I certainly do not fault anyone for purchasing these items with their hard earned money, it just made me question one thing… Why is it so easy to spend money on all these material items but so hard to spend money investing in yourself?

Health and fitness programs sometimes come with a hefty price tag (the good ones) and it can be difficult to see past the monetary commitment. Now let’s compare what you receive with your investment in a fitness program versus those monetary objects. What exactly is that designer handbag going to do for you? How long is it going to last? What if you don’t like it anymore and want to get rid of it? What if instead or even also you take some of your earnings to invest in yourself? Are you going to see long term effects? Will it not last you a lifetime? Let me go over some of the benefits of exercising.

  1. Boost happiness levels. Who doesn’t want that?
  2. Setting and achieving goals. In our fitness program we find why you are starting and what your goals are so that we can help you succeed.
  3. Exercising gives you energy. Sounds weird but it is true!
  4. Increase strength and flexibility.
  5. Increases self-confidence.
  6. Become less susceptible to disease- These are the long time effects I am speaking of. Boost your immunity so you get sick less often also!
  7. You live longer! If you are taking care of your body with exercise and good nutrition you will be around a lot longer with your loved ones!

These are just a few of my favorite reasons to commit to a good health and fitness program. So if you find yourself struggling to spend the money investing in yourself try thinking ahead and what you want your life to be like in the future.
