Tip 14) Your Gym membership – Yes I know January is the one time of the year when the gym is packed so why not keep clear and workout at home?
If like me you go through phases of keeping fit a gym membership can be a big drain of your pocket. Here are few things that have really helped me keep on track or get on track.
- Working out at home using you YouTube videos
Try jogging – I’m not good at this at the best of times, but I do intervals to push my heart rate and it stops me from getting bored (I hate the treadmill anyway so jogging can be great). You can also sign up to park run , which is great and is something the family can do together. (Image from Park run)

- Ask a friend who can keeps you accountable and checks that you have worked out 3 times a week or you can download an app called Pump Up which is great and motivational.
- Try using 30 day app challenges that will help you improve my fitness level. I loved the 30 push up challenge I could just about do 5 and within 30 day I could do 30 no problem.
Tip 15) Drinking alcohol, cutting down on the amount you drink might seem boring, but your body will thank you for it.
