Year of Push 2.13 What Can I Do?

Tags:

Well, yesterday's blood donation certainly took a lot of out of me (blood, vomit and energy!) I always say that I never get sick but after struggling with a cold for weeks and then yesterday's crazy blood donation situation...it's been a rough couple of weeks! I'm taking it easy today.

322: The Expectancy Effect – Fast Track to Higher Performance

Tags:

Here's what I think: the expectancy effect, when applied, can change your life. Lately I've been getting a lot of emails from people who are struggling. Their emails say things like, "I can't get motivated" or "I do alright for a couple days but then I blow it" and "my weekends are out of control".

Creating a Fuller Life Versus Smaller Body

I understand turning to food for "comfort". I understand turning to food when you're lonely. I understand turning to food after rejection. I understand turning to food when you're bored. I also understand what it takes to stop using food as a crutch and start learning to live and thrive without out mis-using food and betraying your body.

319: It’s Not “More Special” with More Food

Tags:

I was on the phone with a client-friend the other day. We were chatting about her goals and what changes she needs to make in order to feel better about her life & her progress. She said, "I need to stop telling myself that everything is a special occasion". What she meant was, "I need to stop making everything special also mean overindulging and/or drinking". And that's different. It's not ...Read More
