Sooooooo…lately I have been trying to work out at least 4 times a week! My diet is not the greatest, however it is definitely improving..I have been trying to increase my protein intake by eating more fish and egg whites, and decrease my sugar obsession. I know eating healthy can be expensive, but I have found some great deals!
If you do not have access to gym equipment, two reasonably priced gyms are Planet Fitness and Golds. My membership to PF is only $10 a mth, open 24/hrs and has new equipment. I love doing the elliptical machine for cardio, I am noticing my legs are looking better because I put the resistance level high. My arms are my weak spot, I have no upper body strength so I have been lifting (using machines not weights) I am only doing like 3 sets of 10, and will try to increase this! I HATE ab exercises, however they have to done in order to get that flat, toned tummy!
Now for food! SPINACH, SPINACH & more SPINACH! I buy a big bag of spinach for $3, I love putting it in egg whites, and eating it with salmon. I usually buy a piece of salmon for $5 and split it up for 3 days of lunch and eat it on bread. Eggs are also incredibly reasonably priced, and are a great source of protein. I have been trying to increase my water intake, because A: its great to be hydrated B: its a natural appetite suppressant. Coconut water is absolutely delicious!! I never ever thought I would like it, however it is amazing!!!! And low in calories and sugar. If you have a Costco membership you can purchase it in bulk. I also enjoy eating greek yogurt with granola, it has a decent amount of protein and helps decrease my desire to eat sugar!! They are usually on sale for $1 each.
What are your healthy tips? Or something thats healthy but cheap to eat!?
