Do you think you're worth investing in? Do you make your health a priority?
I know for years, I did not. I did not invest in me, with TIME or MONEY. I ate crap because it tasted good or it was cheap. I wouldn't pay for the extra classes at the gym that I might really enjoy because they were expensive. I certainly wouldn't try some hokey shake for $4 a serving. And eating fruits and veggies? I couldn't (or I should say wouldn't) eat it fast enough and ended up wasting half of it, rotting in my fridge. I told myself I didn't have time to work out because I had a full time job, family obligations, etc. When I look back on that person, it makes me laugh because I would spend money on some other ridiculous things but I refused to invest in my health. I didn't pay attention to how I was fueling my body and I expected it to just continue to work fine for me.
A few years ago, I started to pay attention to the ingredients in our foods, the type of food I was buying and serving to my family but, still, organic and non-GMO food can be expensive. However, I started to put value on my health and the health of my family over cheap and convenient. It was a work in progress. Almost a year ago, I got serious. What did it take? Honestly, consistency. It takes some planning and it takes investing in you - both TIME and MONEY.
When I started investing in myself and got consistent, amazing things happened.
Just a few things I experienced:
- More energy
- More confidence
- I just felt better
- Lost 15 lbs without it feeling like a "diet"
Remember, YOU ARE WORTH IT! I'd bet on you any day!
