Make Your Resolutions Stick Through the New Year! I have great intentions of keeping my New Year’s Resolution, but why do I fail to follow through?

This isn’t surprising as 78% of New Year’s Resolutions fail. To avoid being a statistic, practice the 5 tips below to improve the success of your resolutions. By Tiffany Johnson D.C.

Tiffany Johnson D.C.

Founder and Owner of Healing Touch Chiropractic in West Fargo


Decide This Year Will Be Different When the pain to stay the same is greater than the pain to change, you are ready.

2. Use Positive

Words Use will, can, love instead of should, need, have to.

3. Visualize Your Resolution Imagine

yourself as already achieving it. Creating emotion behind your resolution will give a strong sense of ownership.

4. Find an Accountability Partner 5

FM Stride

With support, you can share thoughts and ideas, monitor progress, and celebrate together.

5. Celebrate All Accomplishments No matter how big or small, list all of the positive results weekly. All movement forward is a reason to celebrate.

And my last point…historically, why do we always wait until January to create better habits for ourselves? Would that be considered procrastination? January is here, and if for some reason you don’t start and/or don’t meet your expectations, keep moving forward (no matter what time of year it is)…persistence will move you closer to your goals for a better YOU. When you have a burning desire to change, nothing will stop you. Follow Tiffany on

FM Runners

JON KERZM ANN FMS Runnin g Expert

When are you going to start training for the Fargo Marathon?

“Training will start mid-January with an 18-week plan! I plan to train smarter than I did last year by utilizing cross-training workouts.”

Fargo-Moorhead runner Jon Kerzmann is hitting the streets to get a new perspective of the area.

Where are some places around FargoMoorhead that are good for running?

“You can plan out the routes for your runs on sites like www. I enjoy running the streets of Fargo-Moorhead because I get to experience the city from a different perspective.”

Jon’s 3 tips for running this winter Layers! Layers! Layers!



“Start with a good moisture control fabric and top of the line apparel with wind proof gear!”

FM Stride

“Days are shorter in the winter so there is a good chance you’ll be running in the dark. Help drivers see you by wearing reflective gear.”


Light up your Workout!

Jon is wearing the Brooks Glycerin 8; Which he picked up at his favorite, local running store: Beyond Running at 506 N Broadway.


Switch it up!

“If the weather is too unbearable, take your workout inside on the treadmill. The treadmill can offer benefits road running cannot: Up-hill running, and over speed training to name a few.”

Recreation If you’re feeling a little cooped up by the winter weather, here are some fun activities in the community that encourage you to get physically active.

Prairie’s Edge Nordic Skiers (PENS) club Cross country skiing is one of the best aerobic workouts and burns a significant amount of calories. PENS club promotes XCskiing and brings together skiers for the educational activities.

Fargo-Moorhead Curling Club

The 2010 Olympics in Vancouver brought a lot of attention to the sport of curling. This strategic sport increases focus, concentration and problem solving. As a team sport you learn sportsmanship, leadership and you get to socialize with teammates.

No More Excuses!!! By Troy Henne

4 Extinguishing 5 Workout Excuses


I exercise all the time and I never see any results. Being healthy and getting into shape is deeper than just getting to the gym every day. If you want to cash in on all the time you spend in the gym, you are going to want to take a look at what you’re doing outside of your workout as well. Make sure you are getting enough rest, eating right, staying hydrated and keeping your stress levels down.


Working out falls last on my priorities with everything I have to do. If you don’t put a high-priority on exercising, it’s time to make a change. By putting your health in jeopardy you could potentially compromise your family, work or any other activities that are “higher” on your priority list.


I’m tired all the time… I just don’t have the energy. A misconception of exercising is that it makes you tired, and drains your energy. In fact, working out actually stimulates your body so you are more awake. In time, you will actually notice more energy as you stay consistent with your workout. 19

FM Stride

I can’t get in the mind-set or stay focused when I workout. Here’s a tip. Find a workout partner that is going to push you during your workout. You tend to focus better when people are watching you and a workout partner can give you encouragement and support. Exercise is also a mental workout and teaches you to stay focused.

I seem to get into a routine for awhile, but then something comes up and I just stop going. When it comes to your health and wellness, never ever stop. Most people don’t see results because they start making progress and then get sucked back into the black hole called life. Statistics show that if you stay consistent with something for a year, you are more than likely going to be dedicated for the rest of your life!
