People often declare New Year’s resolutions to make a fresh start, choosing to reinvent themselves and finding ways to optimize their daily lives. However, many health and fitness goals fall by the wayside as early as the end of January. Are you still maintaining your goals now, but you feel your motivation slipping? Here are three ideas for sustaining your health and fitness plans and turning them from simple New Year’s goals into long-term, lifetime changes.

Maintaining your new fitness regimen can be challenging, especially when you’re the only one pushing yourself to succeed. Gain momentum again by beginning a solid plan that involves exercising with friends or family members. Studies have shown that telling others about your progress and making goals as a team can hold you more accountable, giving you more incentive to stay on track.
