337: 6 Changes We All Need To Make

Tags:

I rarely make blanket recommendations. When I talk about nutrition, I'm quick to say that strategies depend on your goals. When I talk about nutritional improvements, I'm quick to consider someone's baseline. I'm not going to recommend the Golden Rules of Carbs & Fat Loss to someone who is currently eating fast food & candy every day. It would probably be too big a transition for them, right now. I ...Read More

Year of Push 3.5 Win The Weekend

Tags:

The weekend is here! I know that for many, the weekends are met with mixed emotions. "Yay" for less structure but "oh crap" that lack of structure can leave you feeling not-so-great about your choices. I think many people fly by the seat of their pants on the weekends. They "hope" they make great choices and they intend to, but they aren't intentional. Big difference. Having good intentions and being ...Read More

Year of Push 3.4 Milkshakes & 10 Point Turns

Tags:

Remember back in drivers ed when you were taught the 3-point turn? You needed this skill so you could make a complete direction change in as few moves as possible. I have to ask, who picked the number 3? Is that just an average? Sometimes you can make a u-turn, sometimes it's a 10-point turn and 3 seemed like a reasonable average? #justcurious #why3 I mean, who here hasn't made ...Read More

336: How To Redefine Yourself

Tags:

I would bet you have someone you admire. Maybe you admire their discipline, work ethic or attitude. I have people like that, too. And if you're like me, you might wish you were more "like them". Maybe you wish you thought like they think, act like they act, or have the magical qualities of discipline and motivation that they have. Been there. Totally get it. But here's what I know: you ...Read More

Year of Push 3.3 Pain for Progress

Tags:

What a beautiful day! After weeks & weeks of rain, it's a warm, sunny week in the Boston area! After my workout today, I went for a massage. While many see massages as pampering, mine are not. My massage therapist is doing body work - she's finding problems & helping me fix them. Fixing problems isn't comfortable. It doesn't feel good. But the pain (discomfort) is the pathway to progress. ...Read More

Year of Push 3.2 Light Feet, Easy Day

Tags:

Ahhhh, another running workout. These spring days will turn my weakness into a strength, damnit! I am a strategy girl. My favorite moments at the gym are when I learn a new technique or strategy that will make me better. Why? Because it makes things easier. When you become more efficient in the way you perform a lift or move your body, that workout becomes easier.  That's probably why I get ...Read More

335: Battling Against Yourself?

Tags:

Are you battling against yourself? Do you feel like there's this ongoing tug-of-war between your good intentions & your choices? I did a short fast last week and came out with a really clear understanding that I am NOT ever trying to win a fight against myself. The notion that there's an internal battle is just an idea. In today's episode I'm walking you through a strategy to end the ...Read More

Year of Push 3.1 In A Funk

Tags:

Today wasn't a normal day. I was in a funk. First, I was really tired. Second, I was just kinda unmotivated and unfocused. While I'd love to wake up motivated, focused & energized each day, I know it's not realistic. Here's what I know: my choices aren't tied to how I feel when I wake up. I don't need to be motivated, focused or energized to take care of myself. ...Read More

334: Anti-Aging Nutrition Strategies

Tags:

The market for anti-aging products is exploding. By 2021, it's expected to be a $216 billion dollar industry of lotions, potions, pills, products & procedures. Companies are looking to capitalize on our deep desire to delay the outward signs of aging. I have good news: the single most effective (not to mention affordable) anti-aging strategy is at the end of our fork. I'm not just saying that because I believe in ...Read More

Year of Push 2.30 Janitors Don’t Do Medical Procedures

Tags:

Let me tell you a bizarre story. I've shared before that I am terrified of needles and, for that reason, I didn't get my ears pierced until sometime in high school. But, as an awkward middle-schooler, I wanted to wear earrings like the rest of the girls. So, I was in the habit of wearing clip-ons, except they weren't really "clipped on". They had these spring-loaded backs. Most of them ...Read More

Year of Push 2.29 Nothing Holdin’ Me Back

Tags:

I'm listening to the song "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back" by Shawn Mendes as I write today's recap.  I think it might be a new favorite song. It's really true. The only thing that ever held me back from getting out of debt was my own frivolous spending and lack of tenacity and organization. The only thing that ever held me back from starting a business and making it work ...Read More
