Life gets busy
The last couple of weeks I’ve noticed that I’ve only been able to exercise a couple of times per week. We’ve been extremely busy buying a new car, teaching a class on personal finance at our church, dealing with family issues, and just being busy. I know most of you probably know what that’s like.
Through all of this I’ve found that it isn’t easy to keep on the path towards fitness, but if you set up a plan, and work that plan – you can succeed. Even though I’ve been working out less, my nutrition has been better and I’ve been more active, and because of that I’ve still been losing weight.
How are personal finance and fitness related?
The title of this post talks about personal finance and fitness and how they’re related. Many of you know that I also have a personal finance website at http://www.biblemoneymatters.com. Because I write about finance on a daily basis, it has become second nature for me and my wife to do our budget, stay within spending guidelines, and save. We have set up a plan, and we’ve been disciplined in that plan.
By the same token, if you’re going to succeed in the area of fitness, you’ll need to make a plan, and stick to it. I’ve setup a workout and nutrition plan for my fitness, and when I’ve stuck to that plan I’ve been able to feel myself getting healthier, and watch as the pounds drop off. When I’ve had discipline, it has paid off.
In the areas of personal finance and fitness, having a plan, and having the discipline to work that plan are key. Without the stick-to-itiveness (is that a word?) you’ll fail every time.
Do you have a plan to succeed and have you been disciplined in executing that plan? If not, why not?
