Another day of tracking what I ate. My calories are higher than I want them to be. I've been at roughly 1800-2000 calories. But you know what....I'm cognizant of what I'm doing and I'm tracking. This is the first step. (and even through the office christmas party I tracked and didn't blow the whole day...kept it right in that same range)
Fitness and finances. Do they go hand in hand? Is there a direct correlation to a healthy lifestyle and a healthy wallet? (No, I'm not saying that if you are poor you can't be healthy. I'm not saying that at all. I'm just proposing that it is EASIER if money issues are not involved)
Heck, I just had a really long entry written, laying out how expensive it is.....but it depressed me! Lets just say, yes, you can lose weight on a budget...you can walk, you can run on your roads. But to add variety into your lifestyle you really do need to have some more fundage. Eating healthier is costlier. That's just the way I see it.
So am I saying that I should just throw up my hands and give up becuase I dont' have much extra money? Absolutely not. I will scrimp and save and do what I can to do everything that I need to do in order to lose. I will substitute when I don't have enough money and I will do it.
BUT, it burns me up that it's more difficult for someone of limited means. It just burns me up!
