Hi everyone, I hope your healthy lifestyle regime is lasting now we’re well into January! Today I am sharing my top tips for getting a bargain with all things healthy lifestyle. I know it’s really frustrating at times as it seems to be cheaper to eat rubbish than it does to eat well; but hopefully these simple tips will make things a little easier.
Fitness on A Budget- The Only Pounds You’ll Lose Will Be On The Scales (Sorry- that was terrible but I couldn’t resist!)
- Don’t spend money on a gym membership- considering using services like Pay as You Gym to sign up for day or week passes to see if you’ll actually use them before commiting!
- Or if you’re completely broke, you can currently get free day passes to Virgin Gym Fitness First and loads more- a quick google search just revealed these. Just make sure you don’t end up being convinced into signing up to packages you don’t need afterwards!
- You might also consider online gym services– such as Yogaia (which offers online yoga and pilates streaming) or gym cube- which offers lots of well known personal trainers in your living room.
- Search for online discount codes to nab cheap gymwear. I am a big fan of Next and ASOS for activewear but always check online for any offers, discount codes or clearances. For example, I used Asos deals with Voucheroo to find codes for free delivery and 20% off codes! I also make sure I use Quidco to get cashback as I shop.
Healthy Eating On A Budget.
- If you love finding discounts and aren’t too fussy about best before dates; then you can checkout Love Health Hate Waste– which has massive reductions on out of date health items-when I last checked there were omega supplements for a pound and massive reductions on booja booja!.
- Buy in bulk-Make the most of introductory offers– try Mindful chef for recipe boxes (currently 25% of your first box) live lean for bulk meat and abel and cole for veggies (they’ve usually got 50% codes for new customers) (see more on all this in my grocery shopping list for gut health)
- Avoid the free-from aisle where possible and try to make the most of natural gluten free products.
- Make sure you target supermarkets at the right time for Reductions- I have found Sundays good for waitrose and M&s (fish in particular; which tends to be really good quality) I also love the site Reduced Grub for this which show you the best times to find bargains and how to feed your family on the cheap.
- Use apps like Shopitize and Clicksnap; which give you cashback when you buy certain items and upload the receipt.
- My favourite suggestion for self-help is undoubtedly the app Headspace; their 7 day free programme is amazing.
- I would also recommend Audible-I signed up for a free 30 day trial but kept it because I loved it so much! It comes with all kind of audio self-help books to download- I listen to them on my drive to work. My favourite so far is the Patrick Holford series but there’s plenty of more lighthearted listens too!
I hope all of these tips are useful- I’d love to hear your suggestions for the best healthy living tips on a budget!
