TRICK: Keep track of your calories and physical activity to reach your goal weight right at your fingertips with this simple to use (and free!) App. GEAR: Lose It! App, Free, Apple


TRICK: Skip alcohol. Omitting one glass of wine a day can add up to 2,000 calories in two weeks. If you need your grape fix, try this lip tint. The light-colored "B" consists of bioactive resveratrol, found in red wine (equal to 10 glasses) and also reduces wrinkles. GEAR: Bite Beauty Lush Lip Tint, $24, Sephora


TRICK: Run! The benefits of adding some cardio to your daily routine are instant, such as lower stress levels, a better immune system, stronger muscles and bones, and, of course, shedding those unwanted pounds. GEAR: Nike Free Run+ 3, $100, Zappos


TRICK: Ditch your office chair with an exercise ball. Not only is it probably the most fun thing at your desk, but sitting on this bouncy sphere will work your core and improve your posture. GEAR: Altus Be Fit Look Fit Body Ball, $15.99 (on sale from $19.99), Walgreens


TRICK: Make it count. Similar to the Lose It! App, this futuristic bracelet will let you keep track of daily physical goals that you set yourself. Think about how awesome you'll feel when you reach it every day for two weeks! GEAR: Nike+ Fuelband (Medium), $149, Nike


TRICK: The oh-so-popular juice cleanse is a great solution to get your body back on track in just a matter of days. With Memorial Day Weekend (and that new bikini) on your mind, skipping solid foods for these liquid meals should be easy. GEAR: Renovation Cleanse, prices vary, BluePrintCleanse


TRICK: If you find yourself without the time or budget for a new workout routine or dietary change, then opt for an instant pick-me-up with this body cream's firming ingredients. GEAR: Murad APS Body Firming Cream, $43, Beauty.com
