I was close to cracking the ‘under $3000’ mark this month, but not quite!
Credit card 1 – $0.00
Credit card 2 – $0.00
Personal loan: $ 3,142.15 (previous update $3790.04)
$450.00 (increased by $50.00)
$50.00 (decreased by $250.00 due to visit to the dentist and shock discovery of a hole the size of a moon crater in one of my teeth that needed filling!)
What else is new? Well, I’ve joined a health fund to lessen the impact of my Medicare (Australian health system) tax at tax time in June. I also purchased 3 personal training sessions at the gym but now I have completed these, I’m not sure I can afford more until I have paid off the loan.
What do I do to stay fit on a budget?
I have a gym membership – but a super cheap one, only $11.30 per week – and it is flexible, I can cancel anytime. I have recently started walking home from work – a little over 4kms. This is saving me cash on my travel and also great exercise – a brisk walk home, following my gym workout, is a great way to finish the day.
I run sometimes – not as much as I did last year when I took part in a few marathons – and I try and eat as well as I can. I have a few pieces of equipment at home but don’t use those so much as I have the gym – they are a good backup for a rainy day or a quick workout at home. You don’t need a lot of cash to stay fit – you just need to be motivated. Running, walking, beach swimming, home workouts – all free! You just need to get up and do it!
My health is my overall priority – even before debt freedom 🙂 so it is important for me to invest in it every day!
Have a great week 🙂
