Five Tips to Get (and Remain!) Motivated
Establishing goals is a key portion of the healthy lifestyle we teach at FXB. Struggling 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 decided your why, here are some fantastic ideas to help you stay energized to achieve your goals! Make it Part of Your Schedule This sounds uncomplicated, but creating new practices can be difficult. It takes three weeks to create a habit. Regardless of your goal, make time to chip away at it every day. If you want to exercise when you wake up, put it on your calendar. If you want to plan your meals every Sunday, write it in your datebook. With three weeks of consistency, it will become a component of your daily routine. Keep it Simple Divide your goals into smaller, more possible tasks. As an example, if you want to finish a marathon, you begin training by running one mile a day–not 26! Use this same approach every time to make a new goal. Reduce it into easier tasks that will lead you to the overall 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 fantastic driving force. Set aside time to be grateful for your work. With all new responsibilities, you will learn and grow as you progress. And if your tasks are particularly hard, reward yourself once you’ve accomplished them! Visualize the Finish Line Create a mental picture of yourself achieving your goals: What does it appear like? How do you feel in that moment? Creating a mental picture is a great mechanism that can help keep you focused and inspired while working toward your end result. It’s a particularly valuable method when your tasks are difficult. Remain Consistent Take consistent action every day–even if you’re not in the mood. Some days you may take huge action, while other days you might take less action. That’s OK! The essential part is to remain consistent.

How to Stay on Track During the Holidays in Altoona
Following healthy habits can be difficult 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 Tackle your workout right away in the morning if your schedule allows it. The last few months of the year are jam-packed, but it’s better to cross 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 ahead of time, instead of making unhealthy decisions when you’re hungry and without a dinner plan. Our Simple Meal Plan makes grocery shopping and meal planning straightforward. Contact us to receive 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-to-follow 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. Drop 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 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 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 complete 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 reinvigorating and helps you stay 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 an irritating phone alarm. 4. Enjoy the Season Remember to find joy in the upcoming busy season. Schedule a supper with friends Decrease your everyday 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 making healthy habits to carry you through the holidays.
