Year of Push 3.9 So What? Now What?

Tags:

I believe that the quality of our lives is directly related to the quality of the questions we ask ourselves and the honesty with which we answer. If we go through life unconsciously, not asking questions and not paying attention to the motives driving our actions, we won't reach the quality of life we're capable of. When we ask questions, not only are we seeking answers & solutions (instead of ...Read More

339: How To Be Stronger Than Your Excuses

Tags:

I recently sent an email to my Fat Loss Fast Track clients asking them all a direct question: Are you a dropout? I wanted them to think hard about their level of effort and engagement while giving a lifeline to those who need some extra support & encouragement. I want to open the lines of communication with every single one of the FLFTers so we can make the rest of ...Read More

Year of Push 3.8 Don’t Preach, Practice

Tags:

There's not a single person reading this post who couldn't preach or teach about fat loss nutrition strategies, workout tips or the importance of mindset. We all have tons of information in our heads about how to reach our goals and create our best lives. However, most people are better at preaching (talking about it) than practicing (doing it). One of the most powerful questions I ask myself is, "what does ...Read More

Year of Push 3.7 Use Your Butt

Tags:

How you do things matters. It's a huge mistake to focus primarily on what you do at the expense of improving and paying attention to how you do it. How you do things determines whether it's easy, hard and/or sustainable. Let me use working out as an example. Doing a deadlift without bracing your core will fatigue you quickly, put unnecessary strain on your back and increase your risk of injury. ...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

335: Battling Against Yourself?

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
