There’s always a reason to put off getting in shape, if you look for one. You’re busy with work. You’re busy taking care of your home. Your kids need your attention. It’s sleep, or exercise. The truth is that you simply aren’t prioritizing getting fit. And, don’t be too hard on yourself about that, since we all go through phases when we just can’t put our health first. Life is demanding. But there is one thing you should look out for, when you do decide to get into shape: using money in place of motivation. What I mean is that, if we want to, we can always try to just buy motivation. There sure are a lot of ways to do it. There are people and companies and services who are happy to take your money, in return for the “promise” that they’ll help get you in shape. But motivation has to come from within. You cannot purchase it. So, do you use money in place of motivation? Here are some signs.
Committing to long classes
You pay for expensive and lengthy boot camp packages. You think that if you pay so much for them, you’ll have to take them. You shell out $500 for 12 weeks of classes. But then…you skip more than half of them. Committing to those classes and putting down a credit card doesn’t mean you’ll make it.
