I’m Fasting!

Tags:

Last spring I did a 5-day fast with my good friend ELA from On Air with Ella. I did it out of curiosity as I had never done an extended fast. It was definitely hard but I learned a lot & built up a ton of confidence in myself. I shared my experience episode 310 of the podcast. That's probably a good episode to check out if you have questions ...Read More

When I’m Burnt Out

Tags:

I got a great question from one of my Fat Loss Fast Track clients yesterday and I wanted to share both the question & answer with you guys today. Here's what her email said: "As I’m journaling, I’m realizing that I tend to make less-than-ideal choices when I’m feeling burnt out. I have a very physically demanding job and run my own business so there are some weeks when I ...Read More

If You’re Tired Of Going Slow, Go Fast

Tags:

I don't usually talk about the day's podcast episode in the daily blog, but today I am because I absolutely love today's episode! If you haven't listened to episode 402, stop what you're doing and download it now. It's inspired by a quote from Ramit Sethi: If you get tired of walking up a hill, run. Momentum makes it easier. Too often we give up when we are tired by ...Read More

Why You Are Unhappy

Energy Is Created

"I just don't have the energy..." "I'm too tired to...." These are statements I hear every day & they reflect an unfortunate misunderstanding about energy.

Don’t Draw Conclusions From Illusions

Tags:

The other morning I got a text message from a client. She shared that she gets super annoyed with herself when she has to journal a choice she isn't proud of.

I remind her that ...Read More

Mind Your Own Business

Enough. You Are Not Your Past

Tags:

If I defined myself by my past choices & patterns of behavior, it would go like this: I'm fat. I'm inconsistent. I don't follow through. I'm an emotional eater. Once I start eating sugar, I just can't stop. I'm pretty good at losing weight but terrible at keeping it off. I can be disciplined for a few days or even a few weeks, but I inevitably go back to my ...Read More

Calm Is Strong

Tags:

Calm is strong. It's also underrated. We work ourselves up over nearly everything - losing our keys, sitting in traffic, facing temptation, the meaning behind the words of a stranger or acquaintence - we've lost the value of calm.

I Can Do Hard Things

Those of you who have followed me or the Primal Potential podcast for a long time know that "I can do hard things" is one of my mantras. Lately, it's practically an unending chant.
