Look Book 2017 If the new year has you on the search for a heavy dose of design inspiration, don't miss this year's Look Book. Over the last year, we had the honor of touring some of the area's most beautifully designed homes, many of which deserved a second glance. Go ahead and cut out your favorites, mark it up and maybe even steal a few clever ideas - we dare you.

We always hear about the endless hours of hard work NDSU student-athletes do in the weight room. But what exactly are they doing? We go inside the Sanford Health Athletic Complex's weight room and the Bison strength coaches show us what the Bison are doing to out-muscle opponents. Some may be useful for that New Year's resolution you're about to start.

When you're in a commodity business like payment processing, how do you set yourself apart from the competition? It turns out the answer is simple: do more for your customers than anyone else. The team from West Fargo-based BNG fills us in on the secrets, challenges and frustrations that come with building a million-dollar business. Spotlight Media is a publishing company out of Fargo.

I

IN 2017

’m as bad as it gets when it comes to doing the whole New Year’s resolutions thing. I’ll have fleeting thoughts of things I’d like to accomplish or bad habits I’d like to get rid of in the new year, but not once have I come up with a plan to actually make changes and hold myself accountable.

However, I’ve come up with a resolution that’s rather easy and only takes a simple change of thought to accomplish: Keep it local. When you spend your money locally and rally behind local events, more comes back to the community as a whole. Here are three ways I plan to keep it local in 2017, and you can too.

Dining

Try a local restaurant each month, and one that you haven’t been to yet. Our head graphic designer Sarah Geiger made this her New Year’s resolution for 2016 and she’s still going strong at it. I’m stealing it because I love the idea of supporting one of our great, locally-owned dining establishments over a corporate chain or franchise. While we do get to try out new restaurants frequently at Fargo Monthly, my goal is to make a local restaurant– somewhere that I haven’t been before– my first dining choice when I’m trying to decide where to spend my money on a meal. Dedicating one time a month to a new restaurant (don’t worry, you can still have your Buffalo Wild Wings and all those other times you go out to eat) is really easy, especially with our booming restaurant and bar scene. 16 | JANUARY 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

erica@spotlightmediafargo.com

By doing this, you’re not only keeping your dollars local, but you might even discover something you never thought you’d like or grossed you out beforehand. Even if you’re planning to diet this year, you can still make this work with what you choose to eat or, dare I say it, allowing yourself a cheat day once a month.

Shopping

Shop local, especially with gifts. I get that some have unique styles that can only be found in certain places when it comes to fashion and décor, but a great way to start shopping locally is with gifts since you’re shopping for someone else. It doesn’t matter what or who you’re shopping for, because there’s a very good chance you’ll be able to find it at a locally owned and operated business–even down to the wrapping paper or gift bag. And who knows, you might discover a boutique that fits your exact style. Again, shopping locally is important for keeping your bucks circling back into the community versus into a major corporation, not to mention you’re supporting small businesses owners or artists who dedicate their entire life to their craft.

Events

Think a little smaller. Going to local events might seem like a major “duh,” but try to think of it in the same way

that you would with local restaurants and boutiques. There are countless local startups, small businesses and organizations that put a lot of effort into hosting unique events for our community. I can list a few examples right off the top of my head: Fargo Park District’s concerts or arts and crafts in the parks, this month’s Frostival (see page 74), the FMWF Chamber’s networking events such as Business After Hours, Emerging Prairie’s 1 Million Cups, Unglued Market’s craft workshops, plays and performances by our local theatre organizations or the FM Ballet, Yoga on Tap at Fargo Brewing Company, Downtown Fargo’s Corks & Canvas … you should catch my drift by now. Sure, buying a ticket to a see a nationwide touring act is great too, but buying a ticket to something Fargo-specific is even better. Our event calendar on page 77 lists plenty of these events and more. On that note, I hope this month’s cover story on tackling your New Year’s resolutions in Fargo-Moorhead gives you a little motivation and guidance to get started. Good luck!

Will you let yourself be a part of this statistic? With so much motivation to improve ourselves at the change of a calendar year, it's no surprise that many people have similar New Year's resolutions. So, we took some of the more common types of resolutions and gave some local suggestions for making them happen in 2017. While these pages might not cover every single option out there, it's a pretty hefty load of information to help you get started on your goals for the new year. Good luck, and remember not to give up after January.

e know that losing weight isn't the easiest thing in the world, especially if you lead a busy lifestyle. You might ask yourself things like, "How the heck do I get started?" "What should I be doing or not doing when I'm trying to lose weight?" "What if I want to give up once February rolls around?" Lucky for you, there are plenty of resources in Fargo-Moorhead that can help you with your weight-loss goals this year.

EXPERT ADVICE We met with Randy Martin at the Sanford POWER Center to provide some of his important insight and tips when it comes to getting started with weight loss.

in. Just like anything else you would invest your time and money in, you want to shop around to find a good fit and make sure they have the right resources to help you achieve your goals as well.”

Skipping meals is a big mistake. About Randy Martin

Randy Martin is the manager of exercise physiology at Sanford POWER Center in Fargo. In addition to his bachelor’s degree in fitness and sports science and a master’s degree in exercise physiology-human performance, Martin is a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, a health fitness specialist (HFS) through the American College of Sports Medicine, a level I club coach through USA Weightlifting and holds a FMS (Functional Movement Screen) certification.

Take time to find the right fit and resources for you. “Getting started is probably the hardest because you have to admit that you need to have something done. It’s easy to admit you need to make changes but it’s even harder to implement it and get it going. Like anything, shop around. Where is a convenient gym location to your home or work? Take some time to meet the staff at a place you’re interested 22 | JANUARY 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

“Probably the biggest mistake I see people make is not eating and skipping meals, especially breakfast. They think they’re reducing their calories by not eating, but skipping meals is one of the worst things someone can do when they’re trying to lose weight. They need to get on to a consistent meal plan, whether that’s working with a dietitian or doing something like cutting out sugars and eating more fruit and vegetables. It’s really important to get those consistent meals in and get breakfast in, actually eating and not starving yourself like most people think they need to do.”

3.

Have a well-rounded workout routine. Sticking to just the treadmill doesn’t cut it. “People also tend to focus a lot of their time doing cardiovascular work, such as nonstop walking on the treadmill or a little bit of running, using an elliptical or other rhythmic exercises. You usually need to pick things that aren’t fun to do. If you don’t like to do it, typically you’re not

very good at it. You’ll actually end up burning more calories because you’re not as efficient at doing that exercise and you don’t like doing it. You also want to make sure you’re doing some strength training as well. You’ll want to get into a wellrounded routine that involves both cardiovascular and weight training. Once you get in shape, you can start doing circuit, interval or high-intensity training so that you can burn more calories throughout your sessions.”

4.

Don’t get discouraged so quickly. Weight loss takes time. “Another thing we see a lot of is people getting discouraged because they’ve been working out for weeks and they’re not seeing any changes, or they maybe even see an increase on the scale because they’re starting to eat more and their body hasn’t made the changes yet. They haven’t started building the muscle that they need, their cardiovascular system hasn’t started improving like it needs to and their metabolism hasn’t totally changed yet. They get discouraged after working out hard, or what they think is hard, for only a week or two. Then they quit. With weight loss, be consistent and patient because it’s going to take time. You didn’t put that weight on overnight, so it’s not going to come off overnight. Set realistic goals, maybe a pound or pound-anda-half of weight loss per week, and go from there.”

5.

Make a detailed plan so that you can stick to it all year. “You need to get on a program and one that fits into your day, at a location somewhere that’s close to your home or job and a plan that has realistic expectations but incorporates the cardiovascular training, strength training and proper nutrition. It should be a plan that you can follow, and we can help with that. We can write a plan so that a person knows what they’re going to be doing on a Monday, Tuesday or whatever day it is. Get a detailed plan and follow that plan. Be consistent, be patient and make it a part of your day just like anything else.

6. Interested in the Sanford POWER Center?

“First, the POWER Center is for anybody. Everybody is an athlete to us. Most people think of the POWER as a place for junior high, high school or collegiate athletes and that’s not the case at all. We have a large number of adults who work out here.” For more information, contact 701-234-8999.


GYM GUIDE

While there's an incredible amount of gyms, facilities and trainers in the area, we picked out a few that have great features to help you get started, such as group classes, personal training, 24-hour access, child care, free trails and more. *For yoga studios and other workout options, see page 37

et's be real, sticking to a healthier eating schedule is hard when we're surrounded by a booming restaurant and bar scene, not to mention all of the great events in town that give you the opportunity to indulge in your cravings. Even if you aren't looking to lose weight, maintaining a healthy diet is still important for many reasons. See what local author and nutrition coach C.J. English has to say about eating healthier this year, because it might not be as hard as you think.

Parts 1 & 2 by C.J. English, Part 3 by Erica Rapp *Note: Parts 1 and 2 reflect the opinions and expertise of C.J. English and not that of Fargo Monthly.

About C.J. English

C.J. English is a Fargo native and the author of the Amazon Kindle best-selling weight loss book, “WTF Am I Supposed To Eat?” She can be found locally at Rejuv Medical Aesthetic Clinic consulting with clients in private and spends the rest of her time devoted to writing. Her breakout memoir “AFFAIRYTALE,” debuted at No. 1 on Amazon Kindle in “Diaries and Journals.” 26 | JANUARY 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Part 1

3 KEY THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT CRAVINGS AND HOW TO ELIMINATE THEM. 2.

1.

Low blood sugar = hungry. The key to never having cravings is to keep your blood sugar levels steady all day. When your blood sugar level drops, you get the signal that you’re hungry. If you wait too long and your blood sugar drops even lower, you’ll have very little willpower to fend off your cravings, and even less willpower to make as sensible choices for dinner since your body will be demanding a lot of calories immediately. To prevent eating the Oreos on top of the microwave while you’re preparing dinner, have a snack on your way home. Keep food in your car, your purse or at work and have a quick snack of almonds or cashews and a piece of fruit on your way home from work. This way you won’t cave into something unhealthy before dinner and you won’t binge when dinner is done, setting you up for a crash later in the evening.

Women: eat no more than 24 grams of sugar per day. Men: eat no more than 36 grams of sugar per day.

Photos by Paul Flessland and J. Alan Paul Photography

EatHEALTHIER These are the recommendations from the American Heart Association for added sugars. Keep in mind that four grams of sugar are in one sugar cube. So if you eat yogurt that has 24 grams of sugar, think of it as having six sugar cubes, or the total allotment of added sugar per day recommended for women. Read all labels because sugar is lurking everywhere. Decreasing the amount of added sugar in your diet will help tremendously with weight loss and overall health in addition to keeping your blood sugar more steady and thus preventing cravings.

3.

Eat plants. Plants have fiber. Fiber slows down the absorption of sugar into your blood stream, allowing you a slow steady supply of glucose throughout the day so that you never feel too hungry. Estimate that one handful of fruits or vegetables are four grams of fiber. Aim for four fruits and four vegetables each day. Try a smoothie for breakfast with two or three servings of fruit and a handful of spinach. Have one big green salad each day and you’ll hit that goal without a problem.


Part 2

5 WEIGHT LOSS TIPS THAT WILL LET YOU KEEP YOUR ALCOHOL, HAVE CHEAT DAYS AND SKIP THE GYM, TOO. inal Try an origrita lime marga

?

?

1. 2. 3. Alcoholic drinks with the lowest calorie content are the best choice for weight loss.

In order to eat what you like and still lose weight, you have to prioritize what you don’t want to give up.

Every calorie of alcohol going in will need to be burned off. If not, it will be stored as body fat, thus the least amount of calories consumed, the better your chances are of burning it off. Check out getdrunknotfat. com and compare alcohol calories. Remember to include the calories from anything you’re mixing in your drinks, too.

If you must have your favorite highcalorie craft beer with sweet potato fries, then all you have to do is plan for it. Make a mental note of the things you don’t want to or just plain don’t have the willpower to give up. Keep those things a part of your food lifestyle and enjoy them, just make a trade-off somewhere else.

Consider trying a shot of top shelf tequila. It’ll only set you back about 65 calories and will get you exponentially drunk in comparison to one drink of something else. But if you can’t stomach watered-down tequila, try an original lime margarita. Tequila, orange liquor, lime juice–go ahead and have a blended margarita the way you like it. Just plan for it.

28 | JANUARY 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Pick and choose when and where you know you can’t resist having a highcalorie binge. If you want to drink all day and eat without restriction while tailgating, then you must be on your best behavior the five days prior. Have fun with food, drinks and friends without guilt or weight gain, just plan for it. If a situation comes up earlier in the week then ask yourself, “Would I rather have pizza and beer today or tailgate on Saturday?” because you can’t do both and still lose weight. You will have to pick when and where you want to be bad, then you’ll have to be good everywhere else. Choose ahead of time where you are going to use your cheat days/meals.

The best exercise for weight loss might be no exercise at all. Working at a high heart rate in a cycling class four days a week will certainly burn calories and help with weight loss, but it will also increase your appetite. If you don’t have the skills or time to plan and prepare healthy meals, or you can’t keep your cravings under control, you might actually gain weight when temptations are abound while trying so hard to lose it. Get your diet under control before you go crazy in the gym. The best exercise for weight loss might just be walking through the grocery store, then in the kitchen preparing food that will keep you disease-free and at a healthy weight. What you eat is exponentially more important for weight loss and overall health than exercise will ever be. But if you must know what type of exercise is best for weight loss, the answer is anything that builds muscle. Having additional muscle mass will increase your resting metabolic rate, which will increase the amount of calories you burn 24 hours a day, forever, rather than just the time you devote to the gym.


Chec Platek out Power Meals (part 3)

4. 5. z

No time to prepare healthy meals? No problem.

If your lifestyle prevents you from having time to plan or prepare healthy meals that will support weight loss, then you’ll need to get out your wallet and have it done for you. Luckily, there are good and affordable options to have healthy meals made for you. Locally, you can try the affordable and fresh meals from Power Plate Meals (see part three), which average $7.50 per meal and can be picked up on the fly or ordered in advance. Nationally, you can sign up to get meals delivered right to your door from Blue Apron. Blue Apron will send you all the fresh ingredients and instructions to prepare the meal you’ve ordered. Both are worth checking out. Don’t forget that most of our local grocery stores will deliver right to your door (also see part three). You can order all your food online from your laptop while you’re sitting in bed and have it dropped off at your front step the next afternoon just in time for you to get home and cook dinner. Pick up two meals from Power Plate Meals, order two from Blue Apron, then plan the other two and have the grocery store drop off the ingredients at your door. Viola­­– almost a whole week of healthy meals done in very little time and planning.

z

The benefits of adequate sleep for weight loss cannot be underestimated. If you are struggling to lose weight and truly are “eating healthy,” you might consider changing nothing except getting enough quality sleep (seven to nine hours for adults). When you get enough quality sleep, your body releases a hormone called Leptin. Leptin suppresses your appetite. If you don’t get enough quality sleep, your body releases a hormone called Ghrelin. Ghrelin increases your appetite. Also important for quality sleep and the release of Leptin is for you to turn off your electronics and sleep in the darkest room possible. Light will inhibit deep sleep and melatonin production. Remember, if you are trying to lose weight, “permanent lifestyle changes will never happen quickly. Change works best when it goes almost unnoticed. So that once you have become the new you, going back to the old you will be just as difficult as it was becoming the new you.” – Quote from “WTF Am I Supposed To Eat?” by C.J. English *See page 32 for tips on how to get better sleep.


Part 3

HEALTHIER LOCAL OPTIONS FOR WHEN YOU'RE SHORT ON TIME AND DON'T WANT TO HIT THAT FAST FOOD DRIVE-THRU AGAIN.

Power Plate Meals As English mentioned earlier, Power Plate Meals is a great option if you don't have time to prepare meals or need to pick up a healthy dish on-the-go. Power Plate Meals has a menu with a large variety of meal options made with the highest quality ingredients available. You can sign up to pick up a week's worth of meals or you can stop in to the shop to pick up meals in bulk or treat yourself to a balanced lunch. 1380 9th St. E, West Fargo powerplatemeals.com

Cold Fusion There are plenty of Herbalife shake shops around town, but Cold Fusion in Downtown Fargo has been shaking up healthy meal replacement combos since 2008. For breakfast or lunch, grab yourself a delicious smoothie that comes with a shot of aloe and a glass of hot or cold tea. You can also sign up for a daily membership and take advantage of the complimentary wellness coaching by appointment. 114 Broadway N, Fargo (The Black Building) Search "Cold Fusion" on Facebook. 30 | JANUARY 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

Green House Café Not only does this Downtown Fargo restaurant cater to vegans and vegetarians, but it's also great for those looking for healthier meal options. You can get items to-go during the lunch hour that really is "healthy fast food," such as their brown rice bowls. Having a vegan diet is generally a healthier option, so there's plenty of ways you can indulge at Green House Café without messing up your eating plan. 68 Broadway N, Fargo facebook.com/greenhousecafefargo

Natural Grocers There's plenty of options for healthy and organic snacks at Natural Grocers in Fargo, but every now and then you'll be able to find salads and microwaveable dishes that you can pick up for a quick and healthier meal fix. Not to mention that they've also got a great selection of USDA-certified organic produce. 4517 13th Ave. S, Fargo naturalgrocers.com/store-location/fargo

Grocery Store Delivery English also mentioned local grocery store delivery so that you can spend more time cooking up healthier meals–or maybe food prepping for the week–instead of grocery shopping at the store in the midst of your busy lifestyle. Hornbacher's and Cash Wise Foods offer home delivery and all you have to do is go online and put your list together. Hornbacher's also has an app so that you can order groceries right from your phone. cashwisedelivers.com hornbachers.freshopsites.com


GetBETTER SLEEP S

leep is necessary to allow the brain and other vital organs to restore to normal function, which is something you probably already knew. But that's an even better reason to make sure you're getting not just the right amount of sleep but also top-notch quality sleep, so that you can perform your best this year. By Erica Rapp Photos by Paul Flessland and Laura Cramer

STEP UP YOUR MATTRESS GAME If you're looking to get better sleep

this year, it's a good idea to start with where sleep happens: your mattress. Beds by Design is a local mattress factory that can build you a custom bed that fits your needs when it comes to getting restful sleep. In a previous Fargo Monthly story ran last year, mattress expert Paul Talley at Beds By Design talked about the importance of having a good mattress and how their company uses the science of sleep to make sure each mattress is the best fit for clients. "Never mistake your eyes closed for eight hours to be good sleep. Sleep and rest are different. The quality of

your rest affects the quality of your life," said Talley. "We spend one-third of our lives in bed, meaning if you live to 75, that's 25 years spent in bed." According to Talley, here are the three things that are making you toss and turn at night: 1. Temperature 2. Pressure 3. Support Beds by Design addresses all of these issues in the beds and sleep products they design, giving active bodies the pressure and support they need and using the right materials to control body temperature while at rest. In other words, their mattresses go above and beyond any ordinary item you'd find at a department store. Beds by Design

SUPPLEMENTS Here's what local personal trainer

and fitness guru Ashley Sornsin had to say about a few products she learned about this year that can increase restful sleep. ZMA (Nature's Purest) "An important blend of zinc, magnesium and vitamin B-6 that is a nighttime anabolic formula developed specifically to enhance recovery by improving sleep efficiency." Natural Calm (Natural Vitality) "A relaxing magnesium/calcium anti-stress drink that helps to restore levels which are critical to fully experience good health. This blend allows the body to work effectively, allowing muscle relaxation and plays a key role in the body's response to stress." These products can be found at H&I Nutrition - 1801 45th St. S, Suite R, Fargo

WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY Glacial Peak Cryotherapy in West

Fargo offers whole body cryotherapy in a cryosauna, a full-body chamber where an individual is exposed to temperatures (with the help of liquid nitrogen vapors) reaching as low as -250 degrees Fahrenheit for a recommended three minutes. Believe it or not, this chilling therapy can help with your sleep routine among other health ailments. "With as much skin exposure as you have, it's tricking the body to go into that fight-or-flight mode really fast. While it's on that mode, you are cleansing your blood through your organs and core, and oxygenating the blood. When that blood cycles back through the body, it can handle any inflammation that's in the body, whether you're aware of it or not," said owner Pam Bradow. "After a whole body session, you'll notice that you sleep much better and you won't be as sore and achy. You'll have much more energy for daily activities." Glacial Peak Cryotherapy

Haute Yogis Hot yoga, barre and spin studio, Aloha Fresh Smoothie bar located within studio 5257 27th St. S, Fargo haute-yogis.com

36 | JANUARY 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

How will yoga help your health? With consistent daily practice, yoga can not only change your body, but it can change your mind and how you move through your daily tasks. Some tend to have a perception that yoga asana practice is simply stretching. This is far from the truth. It contains several components which makes this practice challenging whether you are just beginning or you have been practicing for a decade. Overall Day-to-Day Wellness Component Practicing hot yoga daily will not only give you a toned and trimmed physique, it will make you feel great from the inside out. This discipline is based on a mindfulness component. Studies have shown practicing yoga can lead to decreased anxiety, stress, sadness, depression, blood pressure, cholesterol and injuries. It can alleviate symptoms with asthma, arthritis, fibromyalgia, spinal issues, diabetes, inflammation and injuries.

Different Style of Yoga Practices There are numerous styles, formats and branches of physical yoga practices now available. Just like anything, the more popular something becomes, the more forms you will see. The form I have had personally change my life, as well as those who come to Haute Yogis, is hot yoga. Hot yoga has become more trendy over the past decade and has evolved into much more than the discipline was once designed. How does one get started?

is the true essence and beauty of yoga. A fun, judgement free, yet challenging class with amazing people is what you should expect at class. I like to say, “Get comfortable being uncomfortable!” What I mean by this statement is that being uncomfortable in a hot, humid class with a bunch of people is the best therapy to a positive, clear and happy life outside of the yoga room. Don't forget: • Make sure to let the instructor know you’re new, they will be able to assist you better. • Bring a mat, water bottle, towel and an open mind. • The first step is showing up, the rest will just happen the more you continue to go to class. • Know that the benefits continue to happen over time, and the more you practice, the more benefits you will receive. • You may feel lost, confused and overwhelmed during the first few classes. Know this is okay and everyone has been there at some point. Continuing to show up on your mat is how to overcome any negative internal feelings. • For more information on how to get started, visit haute-yogis.com. We would love to help you begin or continue your path on your yoga journey.

Get ORGANIZED W

e've all been there. You have a busy week at the office and you're not home enough to keep things from piling up in all aspects of your life. Before you know it, some of your spaces look like a tropical storm swept through. Take 2017 to declutter and reorganize your home or office. By Sam Stark Photos by Paul Flessland and J. Alan Paul Photography

Part 1

TROUBLE AREAS TO START WITH

Closet 1 Starting from the bottom of your closet and working your way up, sort through all your clothes, shoes and accessories into three bins labeled "keep," "get rid of it" and "storage." 2 Place your seasonal clothes in a storage bin and organize it in your basement, attic or a storage unit. Since it's winter, you'd put shorts, tanks and swimming suits in a box labeled "Summer Clothes."

Donate, toss or sell clothes that are damaged, don't fit or you haven't worn in the past year. 3

4 For those unwanted items that are in good condition, you can sell at local consignment stores to make some quick cash. Here's a few consignment stores in the FM area: Clothes Mentor

2551 45th St. S, Ste. 113, Fargo clothesmentor.com

My Best Friend's Closet 1615 38th St. S, Fargo mybestfriendscloset.biz

Plato's Closet

Once Upon A Child

Family Room 1 Write down every activity that takes place in the family room and the equipment required to do that activity. Get rid of the things you don’t use 80 percent of the time. This goes for items such as video games, computer parts, books, DVDs or toys. 2 Before buying any organizing equipment, start by removing items that can be stored in other rooms or thrown away. Try pruning back the pillows, hanging pictures and adding floating shelves to the walls to remove pictures or collectables that are crowding your table tops. 3 Splurge on additional storage such as baskets, shelves, cable organizers and furniture with storage for blankets, toys, electronics and other items you want to keep organized in the room. Make sure to have toy boxes in the family room for quick cleaning after play sessions that are labeled with pictures and words.

Pictured Above: Melissa Schmalenberger of MS. Simplicity, professional organizer (mssimplicity.com)


Basement or Attic 1 Try to finish decluttering your storage areas in a day or weekend. It's easy to leave half-done projects in areas that are "out of sight, out of mind." Start in one area of your attic or basement at a time to prevent yourself from becoming overwhelmed. Tackle the area much like you would your closet by sorting items between "keep" and "get rid of it." Before you start putting away kept items, toss items you're throwing away and put the remaining items you're donating or selling in a vehicle. This will prevent you from undoing all your hard work or forgetting to get rid of items. 2

Post items you want to sell on FM Facebook "buy-and-sell" groups as you're cleaning. If they don't sell, then try donating items at local second-hand stores. Here are some of the most popular and active FM groups for you to join. *Search for the following groups by name on Facebook.

FARGO MOORHEAD BUY/SELL MANIA!: Items sold on the group vary from houses to

jewelry. Anything you have lying around your home can be posted and earn you cash within days. Number of members: > 39,000

FARGO-MOORHEAD ANTIQUES AND VINTAGE ITEMS: For your older items with no real sentimental meaning, you can sell to antique collectors and lovers. Number of members: > 5,200

FARGO-MOORHEAD AREA “BABY & KIDS THINGS” ONLINE SALE: Have a

large boxes of kids items, you can sell them in a small group to parents looking for cheap products. Number of Members: > 6,000

MN / ND ELECTRONICS & TECH: Members of the group can buy, sell or swap working technology and electronics—anything from video games to smartphones. Number of members: > 1,900

3 As you're putting your kept items into bins, group like items together and be sure to clearly label the contents. Tape a paper list to each bin of what’s inside so you have a visible inventory. Stack bins carrying similar content together or on the same shelves.

EXPERT ADVICE FOR ORGANIZATION

About Amy Kobrinsky

Amy Kobrinsky is a professional organizer and the owner of Everything Has A Home, a company that offers professional and personal organizational services in Fargo. amy@everythinghasahome.com

Amy Kobrinsky shared a few tips to stick to when it comes to having a more organized and functional system in place for your lifestyle. 1 With the holidays coming to an end, this is the perfect time to revisit what comes in and what can go out. For every new gift received, try to donate one to three items around the house that you don't need. This is especially true for kids. For each new toy, they should be able to part with a few items that they do not play with anymore and they would be happy to know another child will get a lot of use out of it. 2 Take the time to put decorations away neatly. When January 1 rolls around, most of us are ready to toss everything into a tote until next year. However, that just leaves a mess for what is supposed to be the fun part: decorating next year. Keep your ornaments, lights and holiday décor organized and packed up in labeled totes. You will thank yourself at the end of the year. 3 Everyone loves getting holiday cards. This provides the perfect opportunity to update your address book. Before tossing out the cards and envelopes, set them aside and make it a point to update all name changes and addresses.

4 After updating your address book, make a plan for your paperwork in 2017. What will be your paper "catchall?" Run out and purchase an inbox, binder or mail sorter to collect all the paperwork that makes its way into your home. Once you have a home for all the mail and paperwork coming in, the next step is devoting an hour or two of time per week to deal with it. While you're at it, it's a good idea to start setting aside the paperwork you'll need for taxes so you're ahead of the game. 5 New Year = New Calendar = New You. Reserve a time for a goal planning session. Be realistic when setting weekly, monthly and yearly goals. When working with my clients, I encourage them to set a “maintaining the organization” time allowance. Whether it is two hours per week or 20 minutes per day, plan for it. That way you can hold yourself accountable.

6 Revisit your cold weather items. About three times a year, I like to revisit our jackets, hats and mittens and blanket stock. There are lots of people in our community that need these items and they are not doing anyone any good by sitting in a chest in your basement. I suggest donating what you can every fall, revisiting the stock after the first of the year and then again in the spring.

t was a difficult time for me, filled with a packed schedule and not a lot of space in my life. I was easily irritated, annoyed and unavailable for anything new. It was during the middle of Startup Weekend Fargo when I confided in our facilitator, Shane Reiser, about my frustration with being overwhelmed and he stopped me in my tracks and asked, "What is essential in your life?" Shane encouraged me to take a stack of sticky notes and write down everything I did in the course of a month. Boards, committees, personal projects, etc. When I was done, he asked me to go through them quickly and decide with my gut, was the task essential in my life or non-essential? After I compiled my list of non-essential activities, I was challenged to begin taking steps to remove the non-essential activities as soon as possible. The process was certainly painful. It

was uncomfortable to step away from boards, to say goodbye to activities I had once enjoyed in order to make space for things that were important to me. The process was both cleansing and healing, as I was reclaiming time and resources for my life that I desperately needed.

Do you want to have a life focused on essential things? Do you want more time for those you love? Projects you want to start? Space to feel more alive? Here are a few ideas that might be able to guide your process.

Next, I read one of Greg Mckeown’s books, "Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursue of Less." The book crystalized my need for focus, less activity and a dedication to pursuing people, activities and experiences that were life-giving and essential in my life. The realization that I was overwhelmed paired with Shane’s

that creating space to rest, recover, and prepare can lead to more fruitful activities. Can you create a lifestyle where you wake up rested? Ready for the day? Ready to tackle difficult challenges? Rest may be your answer to getting more done, even if you do less.

2. Shutting Doors.

At dinner with longtime friend Maneesh Apte, he shared that his challenge wasn’t creating opportunities for himself, it was shutting doors and moving out of organizations that he had lost interest in. He had prided himself on being busy, yet it created less opportunity for meaningful relationships. His encouragement to me was that it is okay to move on and close chapters.

Boulder couple, Sam and Emily, meet weekly for family planning. They discuss their consulting business, their kids' schedules and their hopes and dreams as a couple. One area they focus on is thinking intentionally about the people they want to spend time with. Their approach is to be proactive, living their life rather than filling up their social schedules with requests from others. What does it look like for you to have a life where you are actively building out your social schedule and making sure to spend time with those you find essential for your life? Who do you want to get to know better this year? How can you create a schedule where you get more time with those you care about?

where we prioritized an initiative or cause we really cared about, that we thought was essential for the world, and work to make a big impact in one area. If your family makes giving part of your life, how could you focus your time and resources to move the needle versus spreading around your impact? How can you take fewer bigger bets to spur change?

5. Minimalism.

Joshua and Ryan, the Minimalists, encourage people to think about their stuff. They talk about removing the physical clutter in your life to create room for the most important moments. Their work has challenged me to think about ways to let go of old belongings, buy clothing items that are high quality but less of them, and how to position my life to essential experiences versus a lot of stuff around the house. What in your home can you let go of? What spaces are filled with things that are not used? What can you part ways with, give away, or trash all together to create an environment in your home that only has the essential materials you want in your life? For all of us, we are filled with opportunities and competing requests for our time and resources. In 2017, I’m betting on being focused, on doing more with less and spending my time on essential activities that contribute to a better world for all.

Square One Rental Kitchen & Events A Story of Taking Leaps of Faith and Growing Your Passion fter graduating from college with an architecture degree, Casey Steele found herself working at the YWCA in Fargo but knew it wasn’t something she wanted to pursue long-term. She had always admired the idea of having her own business after growing up with parents who owned their own businesses, so she started thinking about her hobbies and what she really likes to do all the time. “I realized the one thing I did all the time was baking, constantly, for no good reason. I was always baking for people and I baked all the time once I had my own apartment and oven in college,” said Steele. “I decided to rent the kitchen at the Y after hours and ended up growing Love in the Oven on the side.” Love in the Oven Bakery was born, but Steele eventually began working part time hours and ultimately left her job to pursue it full time in 2012. “I found that 56 | JANUARY 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

once I quit my job, it grew a lot more because I had more time to focus on it. It was scary, and it took two years before I felt comfortable enough quitting my job to do it, but it worked out in the end,” she said.

Sharing is Caring

But then Steele didn’t have a commercial kitchen to bake at anymore. She had briefly looked into a shared kitchen concept, but didn’t take it seriously until she needed a new place to bake. That’s when Steele and her husband began working on Square One Rental Kitchen & Events in the summer of 2012. It officially launched in December that year with about six renters, including Steele’s Love in the Oven. Square One is a commercial kitchen rental space that is available for those in the food business such as caterers and business owners who want to start their food dream without dealing with a full retail space. It's also good for food truck operators or even someone who wants to cook mass amounts for their own

personal event. Renters can work on their own time at all hours and the space is also used for events and cooking classes each month. There really isn’t anything else like it in town. “I thought of it because I had used someone else’s kitchen to grow my business and I wasn’t that comfortable right away with jumping into a retail space,” said Steele. “I will say that starting this business was not easy. It took awhile to catch on and I think people had a hard time figuring out what it was. The first two years were a little uncomfortable and stressful, just like starting any other business. By the third year, it was much better.”

A Business Owner’s Nightmare

On February 8, 2016, Steele and her husband had learned late one night that a small fire had broke out at Square One, potentially from the perfect storm of an oily rag in a garbage can. But upon arrival, Steele realized that the fire was definitely not small and that the home of her and her husband’s business was

Keep On Keepin’ On

almost completely destroyed. “There were three fire trucks outside and smoke billowing out the front. We had spent so much time renovating and I just felt like that crushed absolutely everything we had done. It was hard to accept, because I had just been there a few hours beforehand,” said Steele. “It took me awhile to gather myself and decide what to do next. Do we keep going or not? I thought that was maybe the end.” Steele realized that the hardest part about her decision was the businesses that depend on Square One to operate, so they decided to move forward with a complete renovation to bring the building back to life. Fortunately, the community, area restaurants, friends and family were extremely supportive during the four months it took to completely take apart the building and put it back together. And with the help of great contractors, Square One was back in action by June.

Currently, Square One has anywhere from 25 to 30 businesses working out of the space. Its primary focus is to help people start their food business dream and also be an aid to the community and local charities. For the future, Steele is interested in hiring help for Love in the Oven so that she can dedicate even more time to Square One just like she did with growing her personal bakery. “Essentially, people should be using it to start up and then kind of graduate to their own thing. We make sure they have all the tools and everything they need to really grow their business. We have really great businesses here, but for some it’s always going to be just a hobby. If they want to hang out with me forever, that’s fine too. I really enjoy the cooking classes as well, but it will always be about the incubator part of the kitchen,” said Steele. Steele claims that she’d easily be a serial business starter if it weren’t for Square One. But now, she can live vicariously through the success and ideas of her tenants and to her, that makes it a lot more manageable.

cooking class experience To get a taste (pun intended) of the other activities Square One has to offer, we took one of their popular cooking classes. The class we took just happened to be a “date night” class, so thankfully I had my coworker Luke Albers with me to act as my “date.” For this class, we learned how to make kung pao chicken with fried rice and cream cheese and crab “puffs,” aka wontons. The session was taught by Chef Randall Toenges, an instructor in the culinary program at M-State in Moorhead. For time and equipment purposes, some elements of the meal were demonstrated and prepared by Chef Randall, but the couples did create a majority of the dish. Guests were also offered beer or wine to enjoy throughout the class. And don’t be fooled by the “date night” title–this particular class was for couples of all sorts whether it’s for friends, significant others or parents with their kids. For this class, there were seven couples including us, with each couple sharing a station together.

1.

The class first started with each couple dicing and preparing their chicken with a sauce made beforehand so that it could cool until it was ready to hit the stove.

2.

Chef Randall then demonstrated how to make the sweet and sour sauce that would later be used for dipping the wontons in.

3.

Next came the crab and cream cheese wontons, where Chef Randall whipped up a cream cheese filling and added crab to it. He then demonstrated various ways to fold the pastry sheets with the filling inside 58 | JANUARY 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

to achieve different wonton shapes, before setting us loose to fold our own. We learned quickly that too much filling sounded like a good idea until one of our pastry sheets burst at the seam.


4.

Then, we chopped. The couples helped chop vegetables for the group batch of fried rice and some that would later be cooked with the kung pao chicken. Chef Randall taught us various ways to mince garlic and ginger, as well as proper knife techniques

for chopping the vegetables. For the record, a Star Trek reference was definitely used when demonstrating how to chop the celery. Chef Randall cooked up a large batch of fried rice in the wok, complete with veggies, sprouts and eggs.

6.

And then we got to enjoy the meal, which was definitely one of the best parts. We did a pretty good job, I’d say.

5.

And finally, the kung pao chicken. Chef Randall demonstrated the different steps with adding in the chicken and vegetables into the wok before letting us tackle it ourselves. There were a couple different steps to the process when it came to adding, removing and readding ingredients. During this step, we were also taught how to deep-fry the wontons so that couples could finish that part of the meal while waiting to use the stove and vice versa.

Reflecting on the class,

I would definitely say that it’s not only a great place for a date, but it’s fantastic for anyone that’s looking to gain a little more overall cooking knowledge. Chef Randall did a great job interacting with the group and talking about the science behind certain aspects of cooking and it was all very captivating. The other couples in the class were enjoyable to be around and everyone had their hand at helping out the chef. I didn’t find anything rather challenging about any part of the class but I definitely feel like I learned new things. The mix of hands-on activities to demonstration was spot-on for the setting, and the three-hour class completely flew by. If you visit Square One’s website, you’ll can find a variety of class topics each month so you can get experience making a bunch of different food items and meals.

ixologist Davin Henrik has a special knack for experimental bartending and being challenged by his customers to find out their taste in cocktails. His mule creation, named after one of Downtown Fargo’s most thriving walkways, is built like an Old-fashioned but made to be an approachable, wellthought-out cocktail that anyone can enjoy. His 10 years of experience in the industry and dedication to customer service shines through in his thoughtful style of cocktail making. BY Erica Rapp PHOTOS BY Paul Flessland 60 | JANUARY 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Q &A How would you describe your style of making cocktails?

“I really enjoy using spirits that most people don’t think about. I like to take good-tasting rail liquors and medium-level liquors and I like to play with that. I also like to take and incorporate the culinary arts into it. I’ll go into the kitchen and cook syrups or purées on my own, or smoke things. I love to do experimental bartending. When people come in, I like to have them challenge me. If they come in and they don’t know what they want, I can try to profile them and then I have to try to get them to tell me how they’re feeling.”

What’s a piece of advice you always stick to as a mixologist?

“Customer service comes first. Always. If you’re feeling really confident about your bartending or mixology skills, you can ride that ego but let yourself get cut down all the time. If I’m ever feeling like I have an ego or that I’m getting a lot of praise, I’ll go to our newest bartenders and ask them to have a little fruity cocktail competition or something. I guarantee they’ll beat me every time because my head can get so far into the clouds over here that they’re actually using a basic and small number of ingredients and it tastes better. Humble yourself and let people humble you, but also listen to customers."

Can you talk about your cocktail creation?

“I’m calling this one a Roberts Alley Mule. I thought, ‘What’s a cocktail that would represent Roberts Alley?’ So I just started thinking about the people that walk down there on weekend nights. It’s basically the walkway of partying–the shortcut. The Evan Williams reminds me of all my friends with beards and denim coats. And then I was adding in some agave and lemon, but also the big cocktail that we probably sell the most of are the mules. I’m thinking whiskey and mules, so I kind of based it all around that. With ginger beer, it’s easy to hide any flavor, and I wanted something to balance it out so I used strong flavors like blackberries, basil, the bitters liqueur and the regular Fee Brothers bitters. There’s a little bit of lemon juice, just enough to taste it and enough to cut everything down so it blends together. Ginger beer is aggressive, the bitters get aggressive, but I kind of just smoothed it out enough so that’s it’s easy to drink.”

“Roberts Alley Mule” • 1 ½ oz. Evan Williams Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey • ½ oz. Breckenridge Bitters Liqueur • ½ oz. agave • ¼ oz. lemon juice • 4 dashes Fee Brothers Bitters • Splash of ginger beer • 1 blackberry • 1 basil leaf

Why do you think customers would enjoy this drink?

“I get lots of people that come in that want something new, but they don’t know what to order, and they’re scared to death of prohibition cocktails. They don’t want to get trashed on the first drink but they don’t want to be judged for getting something fruity. So I thought this was a good middle ground, because it has some spice flavors and it’s pretty smooth to drink. It tastes like an actual adult beverage, and it has some flavor profiling to it with some thought behind it.”

This cocktail is built similar to an Old-Fashioned but topped with ginger beer. Muddle blackberry and basil with agave, lemon juice, bitters and a splash of ginger beer at the bottom of a tumbler glass. Add whiskey and liqueur, fill the glass with chipped ice, top off with ginger beer and then give it a light stir.

Escape Jr. beta tests Fargo's first escape room for kids

opping up in almost every major city in the country, escape rooms are a craze that have puzzled and enthralled a growing following with their endless array of themes, sets and configurations. If you're one of the remaining few who have never heard of escape rooms, they are defined as physical adventure games in which players are locked in a room and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles. The key to escape lies in the props of the set, however, not all elements of the room are necessarily clues. PHOTOS AND WORDS BY Ethan Mickelson

62 | JANUARY 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

These real-life adventure games combine theatre and problemsolving to produce a one-of-a-kind collaborative challenge. Until recently, this unique pastime typically catered to adults, excluding a large population of the most imaginative people: kids. The idea for Escape Jr., Fargo's first escape room for kids, was born when Ashley Boswell saw how much fun her daughter, Ella, had at one for adults. "She loved it but couldn't engage as much as the adults. We thought, 'Why isn't there something like this for kids?"' said Boswell. "Entertainment is always welcome in this area and indoor activities are a necessity for adults and kids. Escape rooms are exciting and bring good clean fun, as well as competition." With her co-founder, Tyler Baumen, Boswell researched and brainstormed ideas for their groundbreaking endeavor. We got a front-row seat to the beta test of Escape Jr.'s first of three sets, titled "School's Out," a 45-minute puzzle set within a classroom. In this story, the students must race against the clock before school is let out for the summer to find the device every kid covets: a cellphone.


distant world of locks, clues, riddles and puzzles. To make sure the stage was set perfectly, Boswell and Baumen pondered over the finest details, ensuring it captured reality and was appropriate for each age.

Breaking the Code The mock class consisted of eight pupils, including the inspiration behind it all, Ella, and seven of her peers. Once they were permitted to enter the room, each member of the team went to work combing over every prop like crime scene detectives in search of any clue that might help them solve the puzzle. At first it was difficult for the team to distinguish between the parts of the room that were clues and just background noise. In a dizzying frenzy, the team unscrambled clues, cracked locks and collected hidden numbers throughout the room. The excitement was like a zealous game of iSpy, only in real life, with numbers carved into books and locked behind cork boards. There was no way anything would stand in the way of this determined bunch and well before the time was up they heard the sweet clunk of the safe door opening. At long last, they collected the phone with cheers. Riddle Chamber The best escape rooms are more than just four walls and a door, they're a portal that can transport participants to a

For future games, Boswell intends on challenging players by making the puzzle even more complex. "We were too easy on them. What I expected was not at all what I got. This was a really good, true test, and the kids were receptive and gave us lots of great feedback," explained Boswell. "We're adding six clues from the original four, and we're making it harder. We spent a lot of time engaging the kids after our beta-test." Two other sets are planned for Escape Jr. with a "Laboratory" theme and "Ariana Grande's Dressing Room" with electric pink walls.

frostival S

ince we can’t do anything about the weather conditions we’re handed, a collaboration of community organizations came up with a way to embrace the frost and beat the winter doldrums: Frostival. It’s back this month for year two and if you missed out last year, you definitely don’t want to make that two years in a row. BY Erica Rapp PHOTOS COURTESY OF the FargoMoorhead Convention & Visitors Bureau (Visit Fargo-Moorhead) 74 | JANUARY 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

EVENT PREVIEW

“Often, we give in to the myths by our apologetic natures when it comes to our weather. We do this even though many of us do not mind the few extremely cold weeks that tend to happen a couple times during the winter in light of all the wonderful weather and wholesome community we have year-round,” said FMCVB Sports and Events Manager, Stephanie Broughton. The community will be able to participate in winter wonderland activities and competitions over the course of two days, and the events range from 21+ to family-friendly and kid-focused. Last year’s inaugural event was a success, but there will be some changes and more events added this year to keep things exciting.

WHAT’S NEW?

“Since last year was our first time doing

this, there has been a lot of figuring out what worked and what didn’t. We were really overjoyed with the participation at the opening kickoff and the competitions. It was really exciting to see things like kickball hit maximum capacity and it was fun to see, with that particular event, people show up to the park with tailgating equipment and grills and really make a whole day out of the tournament and embrace it,” said FMCVB Marketing Director Nicole Holden. This year will see the addition of what the FMCVB calls Base Camp and Kids Winter Boot Camp. Base Camp in Downtown Fargo is somewhat of the headquarters for Frostival, especially 21+ events. Opening Kick-Off is familyfriendly and it will be open for 21+ activities throughout the competitions on Saturday so that you can come back for beer and fun with your friends after or in between competitions. Kids Winter Boot Camp is the official Frostival location for kids activities and will be hosted at the new Rustad Recreation Center in West Fargo this year and will rotate between the park districts each year. Other new activities include a volleyball tournament, an obstacle course and various activities that are still in the works. This event is a great way to show love for where you live just by participating in a weekend full of outdoor fun, and plenty of events will be happening so that you can embrace the Frostival vibe all weekend. So get your winter gear ready, because the cold shouldn’t bother you anyway.
