Five Tips to Get (and Stay!) Motivated
Setting goals is a crucial portion of the healthy living we teach at FXB. Struggling to stick to fitness and nutrition goals? Here are five tips to keep motivated.
How to Remain Motivated After Determining Goals Now that you’ve settled on your why, here are some good ideas to help you remain motivated to reach your goals! Make it Part of Your Routine This sounds uncomplicated, but creating new ways can be hard. It takes three weeks to create a habit. No matter your goal, make time to work on it once a day. If you want to exercise first thing, schedule it on your calendar. If you want to meal plan every Sunday, pencil it in your datebook. With three weeks of following it, it will become a part of your regular routine. Keep it Straightforward Portion your goals into smaller, more achievable actions. As an example, if you want to finish a marathon, you initiate training by running one mile a day–not 26! Use this same approach every time to make a new goal. Break it down into easier assignments that will lead you to the overall goal. Make it Enjoyable There’s no reason you can’t like the process! Having a good time is not your foe–in reality, it can be a fantastic energizer. Take the time to appreciate your work. With all new obligations, you will learn and grow along the way. And if your work is extremely hard, reward yourself once you’ve completed them! Keep the Finish Line in Mind Make a mental image of yourself accomplishing your goals: What does it look like? How do you feel in that instant? Creating a mental picture is a strong aid that can help keep you focused and inspired while working toward your goal. It’s a particularly valuable approach when your assignments are challenging. Be Consistent Take consistent action every day–even if you don’t want to. Some days you may take a lot of action, while other days you might take not as much action. That’s OK! The important part is to stay consistent.

How to Stay on Track During the Holidays in Forest Lake
Keeping healthy habits can be hard during the holiday season. Build your habits now by signing up for a free week of fitness classes at Farrell's. We'll teach you how to accomplish your long-term nutrition and fitness goals.
4 Helpful Tips to Navigate the Holiday Season 1. Set Your Alarm Clock Tackle your workout immediately when you get up if your schedule permits it. The last few months of the year are busy, but it’s better to tick your workout off your to-do list—instead of telling yourself you’ll make it up another day. 2. Plan Your Meals It’s easier to plan your meals a few days in advance, instead of making unhealthy decisions when you’re hungry and without a dinner plan. Our Simple Meal Plan makes grocery shopping and meal planning nearly effortless. Contact us to receive your copy. If you’re going out to eat during the weekend, modify your meals the other days to keep your nutrition proportioned. Related: 6 Reasons Why Farrell’s Nutrition Works Sample Weekday Meal Plan Here’s an example of a daily meal plan you can customize: Breakfast: healthy protein shake Lunch: nutrient-filled salad with fresh veggies and protein Dinner: chicken with a salad, acorn squash or sweet potato Here’s an easy brined chicken recipe from AllSpice Culinarium in Des Moines. You only need two ingredients: One whole chicken All Spice Brining Mix (half packet) Directions: Boil 3 cups of water in a small saucepan. Sprinkle in a half packet of the brining mix and boil until the crystals dissolve. While you are waiting for the brine, rinse the chicken under cold water. Place the chicken in a large stockpot with cold water and ice until the chicken is fully underwater. Pour brine into the stockpot and stir to consistently distribute. Cover with a lid and refrigerate overnight. The following day, rinse the chicken before cooking it. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rest the chicken in a roasting pan, breast side up and brush olive oil or butter over the chicken. (Optional: Stuff with celery and onion.) Bake uncovered for 75 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 180 degrees. Toward the end of baking, broil your chicken if you like it browned. Remove from oven and let the chicken rest for 15-20 minutes. You can also follow this recipe to make your Thanksgiving turkey. If cooking turkey, use the whole packet of brining mix. 3. Take a Cozy Break Grab your favorite blanket, find a comfy spot and take a nap. A 30-minute nap is refreshing and helps you remain healthy during the busy holiday season. If you need help falling asleep, check out the Calm app. You’ll rest calmly and wake to a pleasant chorus of birds, not a loud phone alarm. 4. Enjoy the Season Remember to find joy in the upcoming busy season. Schedule a meal with friends Decrease your weekday stress by spending time on Sundays meal planning Rest when you need it Build Healthy Habits Today with FXB Now is the time to start building healthy habits to carry you through the holidays.
