Five Tips to Get (and Remain!) Motivated
Establishing goals is a critical portion of the healthy way of living we teach at FXB. Struggling to stick to fitness and nutrition goals? Here are five tips to stay motivated.
How to Stay Motivated After Finalizing Goals Now that you’ve decided your why, here are some great tips to help you remain working to reach your goals! Make it Part of Your Schedule This appears simple, but making new practices can be challenging. It takes three weeks to develop a habit. Regardless of your goal, make time to work on it every day. If you want to exercise in the morning, schedule it on your calendar. If you want to meal plan every Sunday, write it in your planner. With three weeks of following it, it will become a piece of your everyday routine. Keep it Simple Break your goals into smaller, more manageable tasks. For example, if you want to complete a marathon, you begin training by running one mile a day–not 26! Follow this same technique every time to make a new goal. Reduce it into easier objectives that will lead you to the final goal. Make it Enjoyable There’s no reason you can’t like the process! Having a good time is not your foe–in fact, it can be a great energizer. Make time to to appreciate your work. With all new responsibilities, you will learn and grow during the journey. And if your tasks are extremely difficult, treat yourself once you’ve finished them! Visualize the Finish Line Make a mental image of yourself completing your goals: What does it appear like? How do you feel in that moment? Creating a mental picture is a powerful mechanism that can help keep you on schedule and motivated while working toward your objective. It’s a particularly useful method when your work is difficult. Remain Consistent Take constant action every day–even if you don’t want to. Some days you may take massive action, while other days you might take a lesser amount of action. That’s OK! The important part is to stay consistent.

How to Stay on Track During the Holidays in Bloomington
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 when you wake up if your schedule allows it. The last few months of the year are jam-packed, 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 unhealthy 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 eating at a restaurant during the weekend, adjust your meals on weekdays 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-dense 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 submerged. Pour brine into the stockpot and stir to uniformly distribute. Cover with a lid and refrigerate overnight. The following day, rinse the chicken before cooking 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 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 entire packet of brining mix. 3. Take a Cozy Break Locate your favorite blanket, find a cozy spot and take a nap. A 30-minute nap is reinvigorating and helps you stay healthy during the busy holiday season. If you need help sleeping, 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 Remember to find joy in the upcoming busy season. Schedule a dinner with family Reduce your daily 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.
