Five Tips to Get (and Stay!) Motivated
Establishing goals is a critical portion of the healthy lifestyle we teach at FXB. Having trouble sticking to fitness and nutrition goals? Here are five tips to remain motivated.
How to Stay Motivated After Finalizing Goals Now that you’ve decided your why, here are some fantastic tips to help you stay energized to achieve your goals! Make it Part of Your Regimen This seems uncomplicated, but making new practices can be hard. It takes about a month to develop a habit. No matter your goal, schedule time to make progress on it every day. If you want to exercise in the morning, schedule it on your calendar. If you want to plan your meals every Sunday, add it in your planner. With three weeks of sticking to it, it will become a component of your regular routine. Keep it Simple Portion your goals into smaller, more achievable assignments. For instance, if you want to run a marathon, you start training by running one mile a day–not 26! Follow this same approach every time to set a new goal. Reduce it into easier assignments that will lead you to the final goal. Make it Exciting There’s no reason you can’t enjoy the process! Having an enjoyable time is not the enemy–in reality, it can be a great energizer. Make time to to acknowledge your work. With all new responsibilities, you will learn and grow as you progress. And if your tasks are particularly hard, treat yourself once you’ve accomplished them! Keep the Finish Line in Mind Make a mental photo of yourself accomplishing your goals: What does it look like? How do you feel in that minute? Creating a mental picture is a strong mechanism that can help keep you focused and inspired while working toward your goal. It’s a particularly useful method when your tasks are challenging. Be Consistent Take the same action every day–even if you don’t feel like it. Some days you may take massive action, while other days you might take not as much action. That’s OK! The essential part is to stay consistent.

How to Stay on Track During the Holidays in West Des Moines
Following healthy habits can be tricky 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 Do your workout immediately in the morning if your schedule permits it. The last few months of the year are hectic, but it’s better to tick your workout off your to-do list—instead of telling yourself you’ll make it up tomorrow. 2. Plan Your Meals It’s easier to plan your meals a few days beforehand, instead of making poor 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 eating out during the weekend, modify your meals the other days to keep your nutrition in check. 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. Stir 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. 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 like 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 entire 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 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 Commit to find joy in the upcoming busy season.
