The beauty of gift cards, especially the cards that allow you to shop at almost any store you want (like a Visa card), is that they can assist in your effort to lose weight. Obviously, the gift of money makes this process even easier. But here are a few ways you can use your gift cards to lose weight and get the new year off to a healthy start!
How to Reach Weight Loss Goals with Gift Cards
- Identify your biggest obstacle: What’s your biggest challenge when it comes to losing weight? Is it the lack of a gym membership? Food choices? This should be your priority when deciding what to spend your money on.
- Audiobooks: One of the best ways to lose weight is to work out on a consistent basis, and nothing helps time fly by more than listening to a captivating audiobook, especially when you’re stuck on a cardio machine in the gym. If books aren’t your thing, download some new music to help spice up your next workout or get some lightweight or wireless headphones.
- Gym attire: Remember the first day of school and how you felt walking in to class with a whole new outfit? Why not take a lesson from that special memory and use your gift cards to purchase some new gym attire? This can spark motivation, fuel your confidence and get you excited as you set out to lose weight this year.
- Restock your kitchen: Nutrition is usually the biggest challenge and most powerful change in weight loss. So use your gift card to lose weight by restocking your kitchen with healthy choices, meal preparation tools (i.e. coolers, storage containers) or even new cutlery or handy appliances (food scale, juicer).
