The other day I sent out an email explaining how I have declared 2017 a year of "push" towards my physical goals.

In less than 24 hours I received over 700 responses to that email and most of you were inspired to push in your own lives. Many people had questions about patience versus surrender - about how to know if you're copping out and making excuses or if you really need to be patient for a season.

I've decided to address all your questions and comments in today's episode, especially things like how to know if you should be in a period of push or patience? When do you push? Towards what? And how?

I'll also address the one (so far) negative response that came in from the email.

I can't thank you guys enough for all the love, support and encouragement. I can't wait to share my journey with you!

Today we're tackling "the gap" - the space between where you are and where you want to be or between what you intend to do and what you actually do.

In that gap are your excuses.

This is a bit of a workshop episode on eliminating excuses. Once you do that, you close the gap between your ideal and your reality.

It's time to stop accepting and believing your excuses. It's time to eliminate them.

Have you ever felt like you either enjoy the full spectrum of food or you're missing out? That it's either one or the other and there's no middle ground?

I've been there! But enjoying food without regret is absolutely possible!

Today I'm sharing a conversation with one of my clients who is learning to do just that. She comes from an Italian family where food & drink was not just fuel but a way of life! Plus, she owns a bar so she's around food & drinks pretty much all day!

Not only has she lost 30 pounds, she's teaching herself how to enjoy food, life, alcohol and still feel great about herself and her goals. Don't miss her story!

Many of us spend an absurd amount of time thinking. We want to understand our behavior.

We want to craft a perfect plan.

We ask a million questions about our choices, decisions and lack of motivation.

It's time to turn thinking into doing so we can use our precious energy in a way that gets results.

Todays episode is just that: how to turn thinking into doing. Let's go!

I'm pumped for today's episode! I'm sharing a coaching conversation I had with one of my Fat Loss Fast Track clients and we're covering everything from parenting to perspective and her progress in creating a sustainable anti-diet approach to fat loss.

I think there's a lot you can relate to her in her story - she's a working mom & wife who has struggled with her weight for decades. She has lost weight and put it all back on, but she's made a shift in her approach to health & food.

We have a really candid conversation about stress, setting an example, and not manufacturing drama by engaging in problems that aren't hers to bear.

I'm super grateful that she was willing to share this story with all of you and I know it will be a great encouragement and challenge to each of you!

The other day I was in the middle of a hard workout and I thought of a lesson I learned from one of my past trainers (and great friend), Nathan Keil.

See, I used to use the transition from one exercise to another as a build in pause or rest. Whether it was 5 seconds or a minute, it was a built-in rest.

One day, during a particularly intense workout, Nathan said, "go immediately to the first rep of the next movement. No rest. No pause. Get to the next rep as fast as possible".

Even if I just did one rep of the next thing, the point was to break the habit of that pause.

After my workout, I realized just how applicable this is to life.

Let's say you eat something you wish you hadn't or don't feel too proud of. Isn't it so common to hem and haw about how to get back on track? How to bounce back? We use the transition as pause.

We overthink and overcomplicate.

What if we just got to the next great choice as fast as possible? No thinking, no planning, no strategizing. Just get to the next great choice as fast as possible.

Don't miss today's short episode to figure out how you can bounce back faster and take your performance to the next level.

I think we can all relate to periods of focus & determination as well as periods of avoidance and not doing the work.

The transition between those two periods begins with drifting. It might start as a slow drift but we gradually turn our attention away from our focus & our goals.

So how do you stop drifting?

Even when you aren't enthusiastically doing the work, how can you avoid the drift that precedes a period of avoidance?

Don't miss today's episode to learn more about how YOU drift and how you can learn to stay!

"Those who stay will become champions"

In today's podcast I pose a question for you to consider: how are you complicit in your problem?

How are you complicit in creating the conditions of your life that you say you don't want?

We're so quick to point to the things we're doing to make positive changes and we're even quicker to identify how external circumstances hold us back.

But what's your part?

Today I'll be diving into this question and also challenging you to flip the script and identify ways you can be complicit in creating the circumstances and accomplishments you DO want.

I know that many of you don't have the support of your family & friends as it relates to your health or weight loss goals.

I've been getting an increasing number of emails from folks looking for ways to address family & friends who don't support their goals.

Recently in one of my Fat Loss Fast Track groups there was a conversation about spouses who bring home tempting foods on a regular basis.

Should you try to gain their support? What if you can't? In today's episode we're talking about how to crush your goals even when you don't have the support of your family & friends. Don't miss it!
