So often I hear that people aren't willing to work out or change their eating habits because it is too much of a sacrifice.
So....why aren't we willing to sacrifice in order to be healthy? Eating recklessly and being inactive will 'cost' you in the long run. It seems that many of us are willing to DEPLETE our health 'savings' with no regard to the long term effect. Often times it is too late to start making deposits or investments on our health. If you really like beef burgers, why not buy lean ground beef? If you don't want to give up pizza or an occasional piece of fried chicken shouldn't you be willing to offset calories in other areas? Do you have a major sweet tooth? Stop by your local bakery and get a 'slice' of cake or a cupcake versus bringing an entire cake home. Instead of a half gallon of ice cream, buy the individual serving size cups. The same way a person is willing to cut coupons or shop at a second hand store to be able to 'afford' their wants. You should be willing to do the same when it comes to dieting and trying to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
