Having an adequate CLOSE BY gym helps with motivation. If, like me, you see a dozen "I could be doing's" through your commute to the gym, your commute may be too long. I was at several gyms over the years and was rarely seen there because of the commute. The new gym 5 mins from home stole my heart!

I've found hands down the best way to save on groceries is to grow my own. For every dollar I spend on the garden I harvest $5-10 in groceries. And quite frankly food doesn't get any healthier than fresh from the garden, still warm from the sun. It's also a great workout, you can pick up a really nice rototiller for half the price of a gym membership. Win-win-win baby.
I did two things that make getting to the gym easier- I picked a gym closer to my house and I shower when I get back- mentally it's much easier to go when it's close and you don't have to pack all your shower stuff!!
