Year of Push 3.29 Dress The Part

Tags:

As I was laying awake at 1:30 this morning, I had convinced myself not to workout today. It's Fat Loss Fast Track launch week and I'm tired. Wednesday night I didn't sleep at all due to a fire alarm malfunction & subsequent odd dramas. Thursday, after my last live webinar, I went into Boston with a friend and we walked 9 miles around the city (in flip flops - when ...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 3.26 My Calling

Tags:

We are coming up on Primal Potential's 3rd anniversary. It blows my mind. In hindsight, there must have been some legit divine inspiration involved in me leaving my secure corporate job to start something completely from scratch. I like security. I loved my predictable, comfortable income. To be frank, I liked the financial comfort zone. Though I'm super surprised that I took that gamble, I know for sure that I ...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 3.22 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

Year of Push 3.20 My Personal Challenge

Tags:

I'm done complaining. As of last night, I'm not complaining anymore. Don't get me wrong, I think of myself as a very positive person but it's so easy for me to complain about my workload, personal stressors, family dynamics, aches & pains, etc. But here's what I was thinking... It sucks to listen to people complain. It's boring. It's pointless. I've been one of the people complaining and one of ...Read More

Year of Push 3.18 It Feels Amazing

Tags:

I've probably said this before but it's really on my mind today: it feels amazing to feel amazing. It feels so much better to make great choices I feel proud of than to make crappy choices I don't feel proud of. The effort is worth it. It feels so much better to take great care of my body than to neglect it. It feels better physically, it feels better emotionally, ...Read More

345: Stress Incontinence Solutions

Tags:

The other day I overheard a conversation between two women at the gym. One woman was complaining to the other about her stress incontinence, or, as she described it, leaking urine during her workout. The other woman shared that she has the same problem and they attributed it to having kids and talked about how there was no solution other than surgery. That's not true. In today's episode, I'm talking ...Read More

Year of Push 3.17 Supple Leopard

Tags:

If you listen much to the Primal Potential Podcast, you know that I'm always asking people to evaluate if what they are doing works for them. It's a huge mistake to blindly follow a way of eating that doesn't give you the results you're looking for. Like I said yesterday, it really doesn't matter if it works for someone else. It doesn't matter at all. All that matter is if ...Read More
