Break All Your Rules

Tags:

I am pretty sure I've been on every diet on the planet. In fact, I've probably tried them all more than once. Thank goodness, I don't diet anymore and I didn't diet my way to nearly 150 lbs of weight loss, but I remember those diets all too clearly (sometimes I wish I could forget the misery & voluntary insanity). Here's what I remember more than anything: feeling defeated & ...Read More

250: Motivational Minisode – Focus On This

Tags:

There are so many things competing for your focus. It's easy to feel overwhelmed and like the deck is stacked against you. It's easy to focus on what you can't do. Maybe your schedule isn't conducive to the changes you want to make. Maybe your spouse isn't supportive. Maybe you're overwhelmed. Maybe you have a long history of giving up on yourself and you struggle with belief. I get it. ...Read More

249: Ending Excuses – I’ll Start Tomorrow

Tags:

Today is about ending excuses, especially that tried & true excuse of, "I'll start tomorrow". Here's the reality: it doesn't matter how motivated you are, it doesn't matter how great your plan is or how much you want it if you are in the habit of talking yourself into delay, deferral or excuses. Instead of focusing on what to eat, when to eat or the latest, greatest diet, I encourage ...Read More

248: Are Evenings Hard? How To Improve Evening Eating Habits

Tags:

The other day I asked my Fat Loss Fast Track veterans (folks who have been through more than one Fat Loss Fast Track with me) where they feel strong in their fat loss journey and where they don't feel so strong. One of the most common areas of struggle was evenings. Nighttime choices. The choices made after work and during/after dinner. I don't think they're alone in that struggle. Are ...Read More

The Best Way To Do It

Tags:

We waste a lot of time thinking. We waste a lot of time searching. We waste a lot of time evaluating other people's strategies. I saw a t-shirt the other day that said, "The best way to do it is to do it." Imagine how dramatically your life would change if you took action each time you had thoughts of "I wish...", "I hope..." or "I should..." Imagine how your ...Read More

245: How Successful People Think

Tags:

I don't know about you, but I used to think that people who reached their goals simply had something I didn't have. They had more motivation. More self-discipline. Better genes. Whatever they had that made them successful, I just didn't have it. I was wrong. And if you think that way, you are too. In today's episode, I want to talk about how successful people think. I want to look ...Read More

Do The Work

Tags:

One of the most powerful short books I've ever read is Steven Pressfield's Do The Work. The book introduces the concept of "resistance", that pervasive force that pulls us away from our goals. The subtitle is perfectly appropriate: Overcome Resistance & Get Out of Your Own Way. I think we can all relate to being in our own way! Sometimes "resistance" is internal - doubt, excuses, procrastination, fear - and ...Read More
