Five Tips to Get (and Remain!) Motivated
Finalizing goals is a critical piece of the healthy living we teach at FXB. Can't seem to stick to fitness and nutrition goals? Here are five tips to stay motivated.
How to Keep Motivated After Finalizing Goals Now that you’ve settled on your why, here are some good ideas to help you keep working to meet your goals! Make it Part of Your Schedule This appears easy, but establishing new routines can be difficult. It takes three weeks to create a habit. No matter your goal, set aside time to work on it once a day. If you want to exercise first thing, add it on your calendar. If you want to plan your meals every Sunday, add it in your datebook. With three weeks of consistency, it will become a part of your everyday routine. Keep it Easy Divide your goals into smaller, more achievable actions. For example, if you want to run a marathon, you begin training by running one mile a day–not 26! Use this same approach every time to establish a new goal. Lay it out in smaller assignments that will lead you to the last goal. Make it Enjoyable There’s no reason you can’t like the process! Fun is not the enemy–actually, it can be a fantastic driving force. Take the time to be grateful for your work. With all new obligations, you will learn and grow along the way. And if your tasks are extremely challenging, reward yourself once you’ve finished them! Keep the Finish Line in Mind Develop a mental image of yourself completing your goals: What does it look like? How do you feel in that instant? Making a mental image is a great mechanism that can help keep you on schedule and energized while working toward your goal. It’s an especially valuable technique when your tasks are hard. Be Consistent Take the same action every day–even if you’re not in the mood. Some days you may take massive action, while other days you might take less action. That’s OK! The key is to keep consistent.

How to Stay on Track During the Holidays in Elk River
Sticking to healthy habits can be tricky 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 reach your long-term nutrition and fitness goals.
4 Helpful Tips to Navigate the Holiday Season 1. Set Your Alarm Clock Complete your workout right away 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 ahead of time, instead of making bad decisions when you’re hungry and without a dinner plan. Our Simple Meal Plan makes grocery shopping and meal planning easy. Contact us to receive your copy. If you’re going out to eat during the weekend, modify your meals during the week to keep your nutrition as balanced as possible. Related: 6 Reasons Why Farrell’s Nutrition Works Sample Weekday Meal Plan Here’s an example of a weekly 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 a simple 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. Add 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 submerged. Pour brine into the stockpot and stir to consistently distribute. Cover with a lid and refrigerate overnight. The following day, rinse the chicken before roasting it. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put 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 want 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 Get your favorite blanket, find a cozy spot and take a nap. A 30-minute nap is refreshing and helps you stay healthy during the busy holiday season. If you need help sleeping, check out the Calm app. You’ll rest soundly 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 loved ones Decrease your daily stress by spending time on Sundays meal planning Relax when you need it Build Healthy Habits Today with FXB Now is the time to begin building healthy habits to carry you through the holidays. At Farrell’s Elk River, we’ll instruct you on nutrition, exercise and more. Get started now by claiming your free week of classes with us.">
