463: Maintenance, Plateaus & Shame

463: Maintenance, Plateaus & Shame

Just because you could lose more weight or you want to lose more weight, doesn’t mean you’re a failure if you aren’t seeing results.

We need to stop being ashamed of maintenance or plateaus.

We need to see them as critical parts of the process that shouldn’t be fought or rushed.

One of the best ways to ensure the change you’ve worked hard to create is permanent is to prove your ability to maintain it. Periods of maintenance can & should happen along the path to progress.

Furthermore, it’s beyond okay if weight loss isn’t your objective at all times. You can have other priorities while you hold the line.

I am super fired up to share today’s episode with you. You’ve got to take a listen!

462: How I Transformed My Travel Habits (Part 2)

462: How I Transformed My Travel Habits (Part 2)

My travel habits used to be a complete nightmare. I’d binge in airports, overeat on roadtrips and justify every indulgence because I was out of my normal routine.

All the while, I’d make myself empty (yet well intentioned) promises about how “on point” I’d be when I returned home.

I’d return home from vacations, business trips or road trips feeling exhausted, defeated and tremendously disappointed in myself.

I was both physically & emotionally heavier than when I had left.

Because of this habit, I feared travel. I felt like it was impossible to make progress towards my goals, impossible to avoid derailing, when I was away from home.

But, I successfully transformed my travel habits & in today’s episode I’m going to share with you the steps I took to create the change.

460: This Will Rub You The Wrong Way (And You Need To Hear It)

460: This Will Rub You The Wrong Way (And You Need To Hear It)

Why is it that we hold others to higher standards than those to which we hold ourselves?

Why is it unacceptable for others to break promises to us but we let ourselves off the hook for it every day?

Is it not a little hypocritical to demand change from others before demanding it of ourselves?

Today’s episode is short and powerful. I hope you’ll take a listen and then take action.

457: Becoming A Warrior

457: Becoming A Warrior

We’ve become too passive in our own lives. We go with the flow instead of stepping up to be in charge of the journey.

Today’s episode is a call to be warrior in your own life. It’s a call to stop being a victim of your circumstances, to stop acting as if stepping into your potential is a burden or a chore – it is the purpose of your life and the path to a much more fulfilling version of yourself.

Here’s to becoming a warrior!

456: The Most Random Episode There Ever Was

456: The Most Random Episode There Ever Was

Two completely random things inspired me this week. They reminded me of how I’m probably the least likely person on the planet to end up with a podcast about fat loss.

My journey has been hard. It’s been full of struggle. And yet, I’m here.

I hope you’ll take a listen to this inspired episode about my heart, my mission and my passion.

444: Overcoming Excuses For Good

444: Overcoming Excuses For Good

The most dangerous excuses are true. The reason they keep winning out over your goals & intentions might be because you realize they are true so you don’t fight against them. You equate “true” and “right”.

Just because something is true doesn’t mean it’s the most true thing or the only true thing.

We’ve got to stop making assumptions & choosing the most convenient truth.

When it comes to making choices & pursuing our goals, we often don’t tell ourselves the whole truth. We don’t even consider the whole truth.

It’s time to slow down, work to be less impulsive, less reactive and consider the whole picture.

In today’s episode we’re exploring how you can start doing that today.

442: Think Big, Go Small

442: Think Big, Go Small

Our lives are busy. We all have a lot going on. And, unfortunately, that often means we aren’t achieving our most important goals.

When we aren’t intentional about the highest priorities in our lives, we can easily become victims of our circumstances, feeling that there isn’t enough time or energy to do what we should be doing.

That needs to change. That can change.

Creating change doesn’t require that your life be stress free and your days be wide open.

It just requires that we not let the things that matter most be at the mercy of the things that matter least.

If something has disproportionate importance, it needs disproportionate priority.

In today’s episode we’re talking about how to make this philosophy a reality that is reflected in your choices & your actions and we’re talking about the ideas in the book The ONE Thing by Gary Keller & Jay Papasan.

438: Simplify

438: Simplify

We are so used to overthinking, overconsuming, overanalyzing and coming up with long term strategic plans that we’ve forgotten how to simplify.

I had a listener email me recently saying that she wants to stop dieting. She wants to get healthy. She doesn’t want to over-restrict or count anything, she just wants to eat more real food and less processed foods.

Then she said, “I have no idea where to start”.

That is evidence of how far we’ve strayed from simplicity.

Where she starts is, quite simply: how can I execute that today? What can I do today to eat more whole foods? What can I do today to eat fewer processed foods?

But simplicity is not just about food.

We’ve lost simplicity in our belongings. In our thoughts. In our actions.

And today, we begin to get it back. Don’t miss this episode!
