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 3.26 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

Too often, we scramble for solutions without taking the time to really define and understand the problem. That leads to lots of effort with little results. We either solving the wrong problem or implementing the wrong solution, or both. It's a waste of time & a fast track to frustration.

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 3.21 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

343: What Drives Your Choices?

Tags:

Please do not confuse thoughts with emotions. Many people think that it's our emotions, our feelings, that drive our choices. It's not. It's our THOUGHTS. Sure, it can be our thoughts about what we feel, or it can just be thoughts without emotional ties. If you want to change the choices you make, you've first got to understand the thoughts that drive them, both good & bad. You have to be ...Read More

341: Motivational Minisode

Tags:

I had a particularly motivating morning the other day. However, it didn't start out that way. It started out with an onslaught of self-doubt, excuses and self-imposed limitations. I am not immune to negativity & excuses. I have just as many doubts & excuses as the next person. Sometimes they win. Often, they don't. In today's motivational minisode I'm sharing my motivational morning and how I work through real limitations ...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
