I have to go and buy some bike shorts today to wear under my trackies/shorts to stop the chafing caused on my longer runs by chubby thighs
Not sure how much they will cost but hopefully I can get three pairs for around $60 or less.
Last weekend I bought a fuel belt which is brilliant. It has a secure pocket for my keys and phone and it has little plastic bottles that strap into it - good for going on a longer run when you're not sure where the drinking taps are and I can mix up my Endura sports water and have it on hand. That cost me $49.95. I entered the Run for the Kids which cost $34.00 (I think!).
Hubby and I are discussing joining the local YMCA together. More money.
So all this got me thinking - how much money am I spending on getting healthy???
I also pay $89 per month for my Taekwondo lessons and Tae Bo classes. I am sure there are lots of other little incidental things too, like protein bars and all the extra showers I have to have cos I dont want to go to bed sweaty and smelly!
However, I am sure I spend less at the supermarket and green grocer because I buy a lot more fresh food and lot less packaged stuff, no sweetie treats etc.
I am going to need a lot more new clothes soon. I recently bought a few bits of clothing to see me through this 'in between' period. I got them at Savers and only spent around $54.00, but all of my exercise pants are starting to slip down all the time!
I don't begrudge spending the money, but am just wondering where it will all end
So, how about you guys? Is the getting healthy lifestyle sending you broke?
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...
