Little known secret of the super-fit
One of my fittest, healthiest, friends is also one of the most frugal people I know.
She lives an amazing life, in one of the most expensive cities in the country, travels the world, and eats super high-quality food, all on pennies.
She spends less a month, than I do a week.
I’ve often judged her for being too stingy.
And maybe in some ways, she stresses herself out unnecessarily over money. But her ‘stinginess’ has allowed her to quit jobs she doesn’t like, not work for the last two years, help her parents buy a house, and have complete freedom over her time.
One thing she does spend quite a bit of money on (relative to everything else), is her gym membership.
And she gets the biggest bang for her buck out of anyone there, taking classes everyday, sometimes twice a day, and using the balcony to film fitness videos for social media.
The reason I’m telling you all this is:
This woman is ALIGNED.
To the core.
Her actions match her intentions, and she puts her money where her mouth is, when it comes to her health.
It wasn’t until I started trying to eat better, and workout that I could even start to understand how committed she really is.
You don’t pull that kind of commitment out of thin air.
You need to have deep motivation.
And I think I experienced of hint of that kind of motivation yesterday.
My aunt told me that what the doctors had thought was a really bad case of pneumonia, is actually a problem with her heart.
I asked her questions, and we made some dark-humored jokes. (Because what else is there to do when you don’t really know what’s going on.)
But in the back of my mind ran a ticker-tape of thoughts about my own life:
“live to the fullest…don’t take anything for granted…move and enjoy every moment while you can…take care of yourself and your body to the best of your ability…you never know what tomorrow will bring.”
As soon as I got off the phone, I felt a huge wave of sadness. My aunt’s not that old, and I don’t want anything bad to happen to her.
Then, I thought of my super fit friend.
She’s cared for family members suffering from diabetes complications for years. And she probably realized early on, that except for love, nothing is more important than your health.
Hence, her willingness to put her money where her mouth is.
Our program is not for everyone, but if you’ve been wanting to do it, now is the time.
If you know changing the way you eat will improve your life, there’s no better way to invest your time and money.
And June’s issue, which drops next week, just happens to be all about how money and health connect, and how to use both to your advantage.
