New Year… New Me… Pay Me!

There's a spate of new fitness apps that dangle cash and prizes as motivation to do what you should be doing anyway. I am inertia personified, so I'm not going to knock anything that gets me off my ass. There are apps that really put the fiscal screws to you in the form of straight …
