Are you one of those people who thinks that working out is expensive? Well, here’s a breakdown of some daily habits that may be worth giving up in order for you to get healthy:
Can of chew: costs $5.19. If you purchase a can every week for one year, that’s gonna run you $1,743.84.
Cigarettes: costs $5 per pack. If you smoke one pack a week for one year, that’s gonna cost you $1,680.
1 liter of cheap water: $1.79 per bottle. Buy a 1-liter bottle every day in the week for one month, that’s gonna cost you more than $50.
Monster Energy Drink: costs $2.49. If you drink one Monster every day a week, you’ll spend $17.43 a week—that’s nearly $70 a month.
Starbucks Venti drink: runs $4.25 per drink. Get one before you go to work every day, that’s $21.25 per week—and $85 per month!
12-pack of beer: costs roughly $12.60 a pack. If you drink one 12-pack a week, that’s costing you more than $50 a month and roughly $655 a year.
One fast food meal: costs an average of $6.59. If you eat three fast food meals a week, that’s nearly $20. Eat three fast food meals a week for a month, that’s nearly $80.
One meal out at a nice restaurant for two people: Costs an average of $40 each meal. If you eat out four times a month, that’s costing you nearly $2,000 a year.
Some people will spend more and some people will spend less that what is listed above.
So, just for one example: let’s say you get a Venti Starbucks drink one morning before you head to work. Then, you’re running late decide to grab a meal at Wendy’s. And, when you put gas in your truck before heading home, you pick up a soda. You’ve just spent $12.13 that day. Do that three times a week, you’re spending roughly $37. Do that every day, you’re spending nearly $85 a week. BTW: for $85, you can have three semi-private Pilates sessions at Ignite Pilates & Personal Training Fitness Studio a week.
