Last Friday I didn’t write anything because I was road-tripping from Ontario to the most beautiful place on earth (Nova Scotia) with my almost two-year old. We stopped frequently to visit friends and family along the way, played at random playgrounds, and were even lucky enough to spend some time at a friend’s cottage at the shore 🙂 It was a great trip but I am happy to be in one place again for a few months.
This week I have something a little different to share: an infographic to help simplify spending money on fitness and health “stuff”. While I am not a fan of conspicuous consumption, there are things that make training easier (and safer or even possible to begin with…like, say, a bike for going on bike rides…) and there are supplements that really do improve health and performance (with scientific evidence to back them up). However, there is also a lot of unnecessary stuff for sale, though this is somewhat subjective and income dependent. At the risk of oversimplifying I hope that this will be a helpful starting point to think before you spend and be resourceful with what you have.
