Most New Year’s resolutions for getting fit don’t often last more than a few months. If this has been your resolution for years, or you can’t seem to get over the 3-month hump, you may need to rethink the way you have begin the journey.

Rather than talking about it, the key to committing to a healthier you is not waiting for New Year’s, but starting now. We want to help you break-down barriers that prevent you from taking the first step, so here are some low-cost tips that can help you move in the right direction.

Keep accountable
Use an app or a food journal to note what kinds of foods you eat throughout the day.

Be real
Make sure you are getting fit for the best reasons: want clothes to fit better, want to be happier when you look in the mirror, be healthier, etc. Talk to your doctor. Next, choose an exercise program that you like, so you are more likely to stick with it. There are apps and coupon companies that enable you to try out different programs, so have fun with it. Once you have figured both of those out, you won’t have to talk yourself into pulling on those exercise clothes every day.
