Year of Push 2.20 Asking For Help


Today is a good day, by choice. I finally got my car registered (you wouldn't believe me if I told you what has happened in this pursuit, which has taken 6+ weeks). I had a great workout despite lots of running (running isn't my strength). I went shopping and picked up some cute shoes. I had a fantastic call with one of my very favorite friends who happens to be ...Read More

Year of Push 2.19 Handling Hunger & PMS


I am hungry today. I am eating more today. Beautifully simple, eh? I know, I know - it's not always that simple. Managing hunger can be a tricky thing. Managing hunger and PMS can be even trickier. Sometimes our hunger makes sense - there's a legit reason for it. Other times, it seems random & untrustworthy. Maybe we're really just bored, tired, thirsty or thinking about food. Maybe we can't ...Read More

327: Vitamins, Supplements & Shakes


Are vitamins and supplements worth it? Are they important? Do they make a difference? And how do you know which ones are good and which ones aren't? Rarely does a day go by when I don't get some variation of these questions. I've been on both sides of this conversation. Prior to starting Primal Potential I worked for a dietary supplement company and worked to both formulate & market protein ...Read More

Year of Push 2.18 I’m Not Competing


Yay for lessons! Today brought a great one. Sure, it's one I already knew & one I teach my FLFT clients all the time, but as with all lessons, we have to learn them over and over. Today, I re-learned. I'm so grateful for a good friend giving me a powerful truth. My workout was brutal today. It was a combination of being a little sore & tired from yesterday ...Read More

Year of Push 2.17 Mind Wandering


Happy Tuesday, friends! I was in bed at 9p last night and happily bounced out of bed at 5am today. I got in a couple hours of work before heading to the gym early. I planned some time to work one-on-one with a coach on improving my toes-to-bar form. It's not something I've worked on much and I know I'll improve more quickly with focused coaching than by practicing on ...Read More

325: Dietary Fats To Avoid & Why


Dietary fat can be your best friend in health & fat loss or your worst enemy. Today's we're exploring which fats to avoid & why. I certainly had a ton of misconceptions about healthy & unhealthy fats for a long time. I thought that unsaturated fats were ideal and vegetable oils were perfectly healthy.

Year of Push 2.15 I Believe I Can Fly (Literally)

Oh boy. I feel (almost) like a new woman today! I shared yesterday that while under the weather, I went two full days without drinking ANY coffee. That has NEVER happened since I started drinking coffee 10+ years ago. Never. Ever. Today I woke up feeling better (despite not sleeping well last night) and went to Starbucks. I bought two venti Americanos and drove home to drink them while I ...Read More
