Year of Push 4.2 DO WORK

Tags:

You know, I'm a little heated today. We'll call it passionate. It happens often. After my workout today, I stayed at the gym to do some skill work towards a particular fitness goal I have. The workout was really challenging & I was tired. I was hungry & absolutely would have preferred to head right home to eat. But, I didn't. I stayed and I kept working because this goal ...Read More

How much can you change in 12 weeks? A whole hell of a lot. If you will, walk through this exercise with me. I want you to think about your ultimate goals.

Year of Push 4.1 Keep Coming Back

Tags:

It doesn't feel good to wake up with frustration or regret. I don't know if it's ever happened to you, but I have a lot of experience with it. I'd overeat and wake up the next day wishing I hadn't. Or, I'd put off an important project and wake up facing more pressure than I would have if I just got it done. In fact, waking up with that regret ...Read More

Doubt, Frustration & Inaction

Tags:

Last week I hosted a few live webinars to chat about why so many of us struggle to take consistent action towards our goals. It can be so frustrating to want a better life and a healthier body but repeatedly fail to do the work. Even though we want so much more, we doubt that we can create it. We doubt our motivation, our focus and our will. One of ...Read More

Year of Push 3.28 Don’t Turn Away

Tags:

Take progress pictures. Take them every single week on the same day, no matter what. I get it, you don't want to. You only want to take the pictures when you know you'll progress. You don't want to take the pictures when you might not see progress. Too bad. Do it anyway. The whole POINT of taking progress pictures is to face the moments when you aren't making progress. Turning ...Read More

Year of Push 3.25 Do Less To Do Better

Tags:

I used to feel overwhelmed pretty much every day. My to-do list always exceeded my work capacity. There was always more to do than time to do, or at least that's what I told myself. I hear from my clients all the time that they are stressed, overwhelmed, have too much on their plate and they drop the ball on self-care because it's just too much. If feeling overwhelmed by ...Read More

Year of Push 3.24 I Love To Run

Tags:

If you've been following these posts, you know that I'm not a great runner (yet). I love to lift weights but running has been a struggle for me since I was a kid. My mom insisted that I run on the Cross Country team in grades 5-8 and I came in last in every.single.race except one. The only reason I didn't come in last in that one is because I got ...Read More

Year of Push 3.22 It’s A Mixed Bag

Tags:

Last week I shared with my Fat Loss Fast Track & Masters Club clients that I had a particularly tough day. Tough days are inevitable, but there's so much value in improving how we respond to them. Here's the post I shared with my clients about that tough day. One of my clients wrote to me a couple days later that she was relieved to hear that I have bad ...Read More

Year of Push 3.21 Easy Choices, Hard Life

Tags:

After my workout today I watched a TedTalk given by Tim Ferriss  and he concluded his short presentation with a quote that I absolutely adore. In fact, after I saw the quote I sat down with my journal and wrote down some ideas about how I could apply it today. When we repeatedly make easy choices, we have a hard life. We create a hard life. I've lived this one. ...Read More

347: 5 Lessons for Success Beyond Fat Loss

Tags:

I had a busy weekend, full of lessons, many of which came from my first time on a bike in God knows how many years. Saturday, I ate lots of treats (for me) and several alcoholic beverages. Sunday, I ate really clean & biked around Martha's Vineyard. On both days, I was reminded of powerful lessons that help me break through my mental barriers, make progress towards my goals and ...Read More
