Five Tips to Get (and Stay!) Motivated
Establishing goals is a key portion of the healthy way of living we teach at FXB. Having trouble sticking to fitness and nutrition goals? Here are five tips to keep motivated.
How to Stay Motivated After Finalizing Goals Now that you’ve decided your why, here are some great suggestions to help you remain energized to reach your goals! Make it Part of Your Routine This sounds uncomplicated, but establishing new routines can be hard. It takes 21 days to make a habit. Regardless of your goal, make time to work on it once a day. If you want to exercise first thing, put it on your calendar. If you want to plan your food every Sunday, add it in your agenda. With three weeks of consistency, it will become a piece of your daily routine. Keep it Simple Break your goals into smaller, more manageable actions. As an example, if you want to complete a marathon, you begin training by running one mile a day–not 26! Follow this same method every time to make a new goal. Break it down into smaller objectives that will lead you to the final goal. Make it Exciting There’s no reason you can’t like the process! Having an enjoyable time is not your foe–in reality, it can be a good motivator. Take the time to be grateful for your work. With all new responsibilities, you will learn and grow along the way. And if your tasks are particularly difficult, reward yourself once you’ve finished them! Think About the Finish Line Develop a mental photo of yourself completing your goals: What does it resemble? How do you feel in that minute? Visualization is a powerful mechanism that can help keep you on track and motivated while working toward your goal. It’s an especially useful technique when your tasks are challenging. Be Consistent Take the same action daily–even if you’re not in the mood. Some days you may take massive action, while other days you might take a lesser amount of action. That’s OK! The key is to remain consistent.

How to Stay on Track During the Holidays in Des Moines
Following healthy habits can be difficult during the holiday season. Strengthen 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 Do your workout immediately when you wake up if your schedule allows it. The last few months of the year are hectic, but it’s better to cross 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 ahead of time, instead of making poor decisions when you’re hungry and without a dinner plan. Our Simple Meal Plan makes grocery shopping and meal planning straightforward. Contact us to pick up your copy. If you’re eating at a restaurant during the weekend, adjust 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 an everyday meal plan you can customize: Breakfast: healthy protein shake Lunch: nutrient-rich 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 covered. Pour brine into the stockpot and stir to uniformly distribute. Cover with a lid and refrigerate overnight. The following day, rinse the chicken before roasting it. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place 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 prefer it browned. Remove from oven and let the chicken rest for 15-20 minutes. You can also follow this recipe to bake your Thanksgiving turkey. If cooking turkey, use the complete packet of brining mix. 3. Take a Cozy Break Get your favorite blanket, find a comfortable spot and take a nap. A 30-minute nap is reinvigorating and helps you keep healthy during the busy holiday season. If you need help getting to sleep, check out the Calm app. You’ll rest peacefully and wake to a pleasant chorus of birds, not an annoying phone alarm. 4. Enjoy the Season Don’t forget to find joy in the upcoming busy season. Schedule a meal with friends Lower your weekday stress by spending time on Sundays meal planning Take a break when you need it Build Healthy Habits Today with FXB Now is the time to begin making healthy habits to carry you through the holidays.
