Five Tips to Get (and Remain!) Motivated
Setting goals is a key piece 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 Keep Motivated After Setting Goals Now that you’ve settled on your why, here are some good tips to help you stay working to reach your goals! Make it Part of Your Regimen This seems uncomplicated, but creating new practices can be challenging. It takes 21 days to make a habit. Regardless of your goal, set aside time to chip away at it every day. If you want to exercise first thing, add it on your calendar. If you want to plan your meals every Sunday, write it in your datebook. With three weeks of sticking to it, it will become a part of your daily routine. Keep it Straightforward Break your goals into smaller, more possible assignments. As an example, if you want to finish a marathon, you initiate training by running one mile a day–not 26! Take this same method every time to set a new goal. Reduce it into smaller assignments that will lead you to the last goal. Make it Exciting There’s no reason you can’t like the process! Having a good time is not your foe–actually, it can be a great motivator. Make time to to appreciate your work. With all new challenges, you will learn and grow as you progress. And if your assignments are especially hard, reward yourself once you’ve accomplished them! Keep the Finish Line in Mind Develop a mental photo of yourself completing your goals: What does it look like? How do you feel in that moment? Creating a mental picture is a great aid that can help keep you on schedule and inspired while working toward your objective. It’s a particularly useful approach when your work is hard. Stay Consistent Take constant 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 a lesser amount of action. That’s OK! The essential part is to remain consistent. Sign Up for a Free Week We’re more than just a fitness center at FXB Waukee. We’re a goal-driven group in regard to to fitness and nutrition.

How to Stay on Track During the Holidays in Waukee
Keeping 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 reach 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 wake up if your schedule permits it. The last few months of the year are busy, 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 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 get your copy. If you’re eating out during the weekend, modify your meals during the week to keep your nutrition proportioned. 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-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. 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. Put 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 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 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 whole packet of brining mix. 3. Take a Cozy Break Get 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 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 Commit to find joy in the upcoming busy season.
