If anyone knows me at all, you know that I dislike setting goals for myself. It’s like repeating New Year’s resolutions over and over again, every day. But that being said, I try very hard to go the gym every day and I reward myself by paying into my savings account whenever I go. It sounds crazy to pay myself to go the gym but it works.

Let’s Get Started!

For a while now I have been using an app called Digit.
