    1. Be specific

When making New Year’s resolution fitness plans, you need to do more than just say you want to get to in shape. Instead, make your healthy New Year’s resolution more detailed. For example, instead of just planning to go for a walk every day, you could say you’ll take the dog for a 40-minute walk around the neighborhood each night. The more detailed you are about your goals, the easier it will be for you to stay on top of them.

    1. Develop accountability

This may seem like a given, but holding yourself accountable for your New Year’s resolution is one of the easiest ways to take responsibility for your actions. Write down what you want to do, and keep it someplace visible. Set it as the background on your cellphone, write it in your day planner or take to social media and incorporate your healthy New Year’s resolutions into your status updates and tweets. Not only will you have motivation right at your fingertips, but you may also gain additional support from family and friends.
