Year of Push 4.16 Sidelined

Tags:

Well, today didn't start quite as I intended... If you'd rather listen to this blog than read it, click here. My early-morning was great. I was up by 4:30 and had a great morning of work & reading.

Year of Push 4.11 How To Make Choices

Tags:

We make hundreds of choices each day. Without a clear paradigm for decision making, these choices can exhaust & overwhelm us. Worse, they can hold us back, keep us from our best life and anchor us to a life that is less than what we want. When you have a framework for decision making or a simple filter through which you see your choices, you can eliminate a lot of ...Read More

Year of Push 4.9 Minimization of Regret

Tags:

For most of my life, I regretted the majority of my choices. I'd regret over eating. I'd regret giving up on my "diet". I'd regret spending so much money or not working out consistently. There were daily regrets & big picture regrets. I wasn't proud of how I was living my life or spending my days. It felt awful. These days, I'm all about the minimization of regret.  When I'm ...Read More

Year of Push 4.7 Authentic Is Better Than Perfect

I recently invited you guys to "ask me anything" and the answers to your questions will air on tomorrow's podcast. One of the questions has been lingering on my mind & I wanted to take a minute to address it here. "Here is another one, when you talk about an imperfect day, what does that look like?

Year of Push 4.6 How Free Are You?

Tags:

How free are you if you're confined by your comfort zone? How free are you if you struggle to choose what you want most and succumb to the allure of what you want now?

Year of Push 4.5 There’s No Peer Pressure

Tags:

Food pushers are only an issue if you let them be. I get it: you're trying to make good choices and someone(s) keeps encouraging you to "live a little". Is it fun? No, it's not. Is it a problem? Only if you make it one. Can someone encourage you to eat? Yes. Can someone tease you about trying to make great choices? Of course. But can they choose for you? ...Read More

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

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
