Stay Slim and Healthy on a Frugal Budget

Monday, November 10, 2008

One does not need an overpriced gym membership to be trim or stay fit. Chances to exercise can be found in many places. A person just have to be resourceful in your approach. With today's economy, I'm positive that you'll agree to anything that will aid you pinch those hard-earned dollars.

Fiscal problems are an ordinary alibi for people who don't want to straighten out their weight and wellness. The truth is they are just too slothful to work out a resolution. They are just finding excuses to vindicate their need of effort to get sound. If you certainly want to do something, you will certainly come up with a way to achieve it no matter what, and working out is no exception.

The following are some tips to help you to not only get healthy, but save some money in the process as well. Please be sure to check with your doctor first before going through any physical exercise. Having a decent pair of running shoes would not hurt either too.

  • Walk your way to school. Instead of hailing a taxicab or driving, put on your running shoes and put those leg muscles to work. This will help you save money on petrol and burn calories as well! Park a number of blocks away from your office and walk the rest of the way if it's too a good distance to walk from your place.
  • Get out the elevator several floors below of your office and take advantage of the stairs. Better yet, traverse the stairs all the way!
  • Recreation squares and jogging ruts are your friends. This is a good way to bump into people with similar interests as you, and it is often free! Pay attention and you may secure a few tips that they may be ready to part with. All that is required is a pair of good running shoes and you got yourself complimentary use of Mother Nature's treadmill.
  • Do simple stretches during work. Muscles, especially leg muscles, are likely to cramp during long hours of sitting. A good way to keep pace with your fitness is by getting a short break and doing primary leg, arm, neck, and back stretches.
  • Instead of employing help, do your own pad cleaning. All that mopping, scouring, and vacuuming will put your entire body to work. You are sure to sweat five minutes into it.
  • Look for a sport that you are fond of and play it like a pro. Even though you're not good at it, your objective here is not to win. You want to work a sweat and rid of those repugnant undesirable fats. Also, it would be finer if you can have your chums join you.
  • Work out while having a night-out! In place of catching a movie or wasting the night drinking, go to clubs or attend concerts and dance your heart out. This is yet another example of mixing exercise with fun!

I have found in the past that the periods in which I had very little money were the ones where I became the fittest and healthiest! Because I had time to go for lots of long walks and I couldn't afford cake and take-aways - I used to eat brown rice, veggies and tofu all the time. It's interesting!

Thanks for the terrific ideas! That's putting a positive spin on house cleaning! I'll remember that next time I'm scrubbing the tub!
