What do you do when you don't feel like doing the work?

I am all for indulging when it makes sense, but I also know that continuously justifying indulgences & overeating can keep you from your goals and be a huge source of frustration.

In today's episode I'm sharing a few of my own personal strategies for overcoming that desire to throw in the towel or turn away from my goals.

If you feel like you need a better way to respond to temptation, stress, or simply the way you talk yourself into over-indulging, today's episode is for you!

I recently did some 2 week journal reviews for my veteran Fat Loss Fast Track clients and decided it's time to talk about the basics of fat loss and specific habits that will dramatically accelerate your results.

If you are trying but not getting results, this episode is for you.

If you aren't trying but want results, this episode is for you.

If you feel stuck, unmotivated or unsure of where to start, this episode is for you.

If you think you know everything, this episode is for you. ;-)

Hope you enjoy it!

Do you get hung up on your past? Do you let it frustrate you? Does it contribute to your doubts about what you might be able to do in the future? That's what today's episode is all about.

It's time to understand how to change that.

This episode was inspired, in part, by The Traveler's Gift by Andy Andrews. A couple of the quotes at the center of this episode include:

I do not deny the reality of my situation; I deny the finality of it.

If we familiarize ourselves with the chains of bondage, we prepare our own limbs to wear them.

Make sure to listen to this one!

Struggling with sugar cravings? Do you want to make better choices but find yourself repeatedly giving into the pull of your cravings?

One of critical steps we need to take in order to overcome cravings is understanding how our current behavior is actually creating those cravings.

Sure, practice, discipline & self-control play a role, but identifying the ways that your current choices are triggering the return of your cravings is a powerful place to start.

In today's episode we're geeking out on a couple aspects of the science of cravings so you can begin to create your own personal sugar solution.

The other day I had a powerful interaction with someone in my Primal Potential Masters Club. She loves food (I do too) and she's struggling with a feeling of "missing out" if & when she's trying to eat less.

How do you love food & still lose weight? I promise it's possible...

She knows she is probably eating too much but the idea of eating less creates a real uneasiness for her.

She called it fear. Whatever it is for you, it can feel like tension, deprivation, fear of missing out or lack. Today we're going to dive into solutions for those fears.

Big shout out to this super special client for being open to me sharing some of our exchange.

I've shared with you that one of my mantras is "travel light" and it has been a game changer for me. This weekend, however, I realized that I've really dropped the ball on living that mantra, especially as it relates to my interactions with other people.

First, let me revisit (more for me than for you) what "travel light" means to me.

I don't get flustered over the small stuff.
I'm grateful.
I find the good in everything.
I choose to focus on opportunities to move forward.
I am more powerful than my setbacks & circumstances.
I know that joy is a choice & I choose it daily.

Essentially, "travel light" reminds me to refuse to be burdened by anything. Let it go. Set it down. Travel light.

I really believe that often times, extra physical weight we carry is a physical manifestation of extra emotional weight we're carrying.

More than that, most of the emotional baggage we carry with us is optional. We can & should set it down. We only carry it with us because we don't realize that we can & should let it go.

You can make progress towards your goals AND indulge. You can enjoy summer or holiday treats without guilt. You can enjoy food AND results.

It's time to let go of the idea of perfection and stop creating drama and guilt over enjoying food.

With that said, summer time & holiday seasons can be a challenging time to embrace improvements and avoid going overboard.

In today's episode we're talking about 5 strategies to create summer success without perfection. These strategies are about YOU and can easily be applied to holidays or any time you feel like you're in a funk and you want to make more progress.

In today's episode I share a conversation with one of my Masters Club clients. When I asked her about the most significant changes she's made in her life, she shared how she's now certain that she is in control of her life. She's in control of her food choices, her physique, her career, finances and much more.

Our discussion centers around a few follow-up questions: did you always feel like you had that control? And: how did you create it? How has that sense of control impacted how you take care of your body?

Specifically, we talked about how she transitioned to feeling limited because of her circumstances to feeling empowered regardless of her circumstances. 

Then we got talking about her struggles. She isn't seeing the physical progress she knows she is capable of and she feels like she needs more standards for herself when it comes to food. We quickly got to the root of the problem: eating too much of the "right" things. She's improved the quality of what she's eating, but the quantity is probably a bit much for her goals.

Together, we established a strategy for paying more attention to how much she's eating versus how much she needs to eat.

Don't miss today's conversation!

Excuses, procrastination & not trusting yourself stem from one problem: communication.

We all understand the importance of honest & productive communication with others, but we don't spend much time improving the way we communicate with ourselves. This is a problem.

To overcome excuses, to begin to trust yourself and to get to a point where what you say you'll do actually means something, improve the way you communicate with yourself.

Today we'll talk about how.

The other day on my daily blog I invited you to "ask me anything" and today I'm sharing my answers. Some of the questions are personal in nature - everything from my goals & recent progress to whether or not I have a boyfriend. Others are playful and some are certainly tactical.

I consider you guys family and I love when we can get to know each other better. Today, you'll hear a little bit more about my own journey, my life as well as my thoughts on things like sugar addiction, perfection and working out.

Do you feel like you're a bit complacent? You want more results but you're just not pushing yourself to get those results?

On today's episode I'm talking with one of my clients who has lost 70 lbs and wants to lose more. When I asked about his current challenges & struggles he said, "I've become complacent."

He finds himself rationalizing choices because one treat or indulgence won't really make a big difference in the long run.

Part of this is human nature. Our motivation, if not constantly cultivated, ebbs & flows. Plus, with 70 lbs of weight lost, it's easy to focus on how much you've accomplished and use that to justify throttling back on the effort.

And, we can rationalize & justify pretty much everything.

The problem is: that's not what this client wants. He doesn't want to throttle back. He doesn't want to rationalize & justify. He wants to overcome the complacency. Today, we talk about how.

This might be one of my favorite episodes ever. Here's what happened: I got an email from a client who was really struggling. In the heat of a moment of frustration, she wanted to eat.

She was simultaneously making choices that weren't aligned with her goals AND mad at herself that she was still fighting these battles with food.

While bemoaning the ongoing struggle, she chose to turn to food.

She was feeling emotional, overwhelmed and held captive by temptation & surrender.

We went back & forth over email and voice note and when it was all said & done, I asked if I could share our exchange on the podcast. Fortunately for everyone who listens, she said yes.

Don't miss this one.
