“For me, Farrell's was crucial in amping up the intensity and pushing me harder, but for others, it provided the technique, consistency, supportive network, accountability, and/or whole host of other tools they needed to see it through.”

Five Tips to Get (and Remain!) Motivated
Finalizing goals is a critical part of the healthy living we teach at FXB. Can't seem to stick to fitness and nutrition goals? Here are five tips to remain motivated.
How to Stay Motivated After Finalizing Goals Now that you’ve established your why, here are some fantastic tips to help you keep working to achieve your goals! Make it Part of Your Regimen This seems simple, but establishing new practices can be hard. It takes three weeks to make a habit. Whatever your goal, make time to work on it once a day. If you want to get your workout done in the morning, schedule it on your calendar. If you want to meal plan every Sunday, add it in your planner. With three weeks of sticking to it, it will become a part of your everyday routine. Keep it Straightforward Break your goals into smaller, more manageable assignments. 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 establish 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 like the process! Having an enjoyable time is not your foe–actually, it can be a good driving force. Make time to to acknowledge your work. With all new obligations, you will learn and grow during the journey. And if your tasks are extremely hard, reward yourself once you’ve accomplished them! Think About the Finish Line Develop a mental picture of yourself completing your goals: What does it look like? How do you feel in that moment? Visualization is a strong aid that can help keep you on track and inspired while working toward your end result. It’s an especially helpful method when your assignments are difficult. Remain Consistent Take consistent action daily–even if you don’t want to. Some days you may take huge action, while other days you might take less action. That’s OK! The essential part is to keep consistent.

How to Stay on Track During the Holidays in Urbandale
Sticking to 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 achieve 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 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 beforehand, instead of making bad 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 pick up your copy. If you’re eating at a restaurant during the weekend, change your meals on weekdays 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 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 an easy 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 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 baking it. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rest 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 whole 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 keep healthy during the busy holiday season. If you need help getting to sleep, 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 Don’t forget to find joy in the upcoming busy season. Schedule a dinner with loved ones Decrease your weekday 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 creating healthy habits to carry you through the holidays. At Farrell’s Urbandale, we’ll show you how to manage nutrition, exercise and more. Get started today by claiming your free week of classes with us.">
