Primal Potential

The Primal Potential Podcast is about transformation, not information. So many of us KNOW what we need to do to achieve our goals but we aren't DOING it. There's a continuous gap between our INTENTIONS and our ACTIONS. Primal Potential is a TOOL to help you create massive change in your life and ENJOY the journey!

If we begin to assess and respond to warning signs of impending health problems, we can create a buffer against many health challenges. The key is, we have to know what these warning signs are and where we stand.

It's a listener Q&A episode! We're focusing on one of those "hard pills to swallow" and that is the fact that emotional eating doesn't really soothe anything. In this episode we're discussing the difference between finding a distraction and creating solution.

Today's giveaway winner gets $20 gift card to Butcher Box!

This Saturday we're answering these questions:

  • How do I get myself to consistently lean toward more positive, productive, thought processes?
  • How do you stop using food to soothe hurts?
  • How can I save money in a way that doesn’t make me feel stressed?
  • How can I keep myself on a schedule?
  • How do you start a meditation habit?
  • I have heard you mention a few times that you have a goal this year of (I’m summarizing here, please forgive as it’s been a while since I heard you talk about it) creating more meaningful connections, better relationships, and being less task focused when it comes to your boyfriend. Something like this, right? Do you talk about this in more depth anywhere? I can totally relate to this and it is definitely an area in my life that I can improve. Wanting to know and learn more about what you’re doing.

Found out today's winner of Butcher Box at the end of the episode!

Ladies! Whether you are pre-menopausal or post-menopausal, we ALL have a monthly hormonal cycle. When you eat for your cycle, you feel better! Increase your energy, improve focus, decrease hunger & cravings just by making a few small adjustments based on where you are in your monthly cycle.

I'm so excited to have Brooke Thomas back on the show! Too many people are "fine". Things are "okay". People are living a fine life, even a good life, but not a life they love.

Oftentimes, setting a bigger vision feels weird. We're unsure of ourselves and make decisions based on how others might respond to the moves we make. That means living small!

In this converation with Brooke Thomas, we talk about how to create clarity for your life and how to respond to yourself as you start going through the fears, doubts and dramas.

Be on the lookout for Brooke's new podcast - the Live Out Loud Show launches this week and as soon as it's life, we'll link to it here!

One of the topics we're focusing on in this Saturday's Q&A is NUMBERS - the thing you see on the scale, on your bank account, or on anything else that contributes to your life and mindset. How do you face these figures? What does 'avoidance isn't refuge' mean when it comes to these numbers? Join us as we tackle the topic in this episode!

Here's the complete list of questions we're answering today:

  • I would love your opinion on tracking body composition and weight. I'm working with a counselor who wants me to avoid numbers altogether, as she thinks I try to over-control these variables. However, I believe that avoiding these numbers is hiding from them. You once said "avoidance isn't refuge" in the 12WT and it's always stuck with me. I think it's important to train myself to be able to face the numbers and have an objective, non-dramatic response to them regardless of what they are. I also think it's important to have an objective measure of progress so I can re-evaluate whether or not what I'm doing is working. On the other hand, I also feel a reasonable amount of stress at the thought of letting go of numerical measures of progress altogether, so maybe she's onto something. What are your thoughts?
  • What are some physically actionable activities to ride out cravings?
  • How do I stop self-sabotage and procrastination from keeping me from identifying what I truly want in my life?
  • I'd love to hear tips for facing the plateau- after sustained effort, there is a point where the scale seems stuck- (or broken!) How do you maintain focus to have the positive belief that it will happen with sustained effort?
  • What’s your thoughts on nut consumption? I absolutely love them, so if you are pro-nut, when would Be the best time to eat them and with what?

Today's giveaway winner gets a bottle of mood+! We announce the winner at the end of the episode!

Taking action isn't the same as creating a solution. Respond to a problem isn't the same as solving it. Are you exhausting yourself with fruitless effort? I want us all to commit to making this a year of ACTION instead of a year of learning. Let's make this a year of CHANGE. If you need a little fire about taking action, this is the episode for you!

"How do I get out of my own way?" is a question we often hear! Sometimes, the answer is more about what you're doing to get in your own way and if you're willing to create an improvement today. In today's episode we're digging deeper into this question and many more!

Registration for the 12 Weeks to Transformation - Winter is finally open! It's going to be a great way to start 2020!

We're answering these questions in this week's Q&A:

  • I’m wondering if you have any lunch ideas and your reasons for choosing the ingredients etc. I often find lunch time the hardest part of my day for making good choices and would love some suggestions.
  • Where do I start?
  • I would like to know how many journals you have. Do you keep separate journals for your food and HEC  tracking, then another for Identity? Another for gratitude? Another for money?
  • Do you cook your salmon cakes before you freeze them?
  • How do I get out of my own way?
  • I was wondering if you could give some advice on how to find a credible Life Coach Certification program. There are so many online to choose from and since you are in this business, I would love to hear your input. By the way, would you mind sharing where you received your life coaching training?

Congratulations to today's winner of a box of turmeric latte from Four Sigmatic! We made the exciting announcement by the end of the episode - stay tuned for that!

It's time for a Q&A episode! We are answering your questions about comparison, judgement and so much more!

Here's the list of the questions we're diving into today:

  • How do I stop widening the gap? Even when I know inaction is the issue but I do it anyway. (To understand this question, please listen to episode 683 of the podcast)
  • How would you describe your best day?
  • How do I learn to not care what other people think, or not compare myself with someone else's journey?
  • Any specific dietary suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am so confused by ALL the information available- I just shut it down due to overload. I would like some practical, reasonable approaches, especially for any snacks, etc.
  • I’ve lost weight through a program and am now trying to succeed on my own. How do I successfully transition and not backslide?

In today's Q&A episode we are talking about the difference between solving the problem and further creating new ones. How to focus on coming up with solutions rather than paying attention to how you feel about the problem? Tune in for the answer!

We answer these questions in today's episode:

Any tips for problem solving (instead of problem creating)?

What the differences are between MCT oil and coconut oil. Are they the same thing? I tried your bullet proof tea the other day, making it with a tablespoon of butter and of coconut oil and found it to be somewhat greasy. Am I using the right amounts?

What is happiness?

I’ve lost weight before but I couldn’t really see the change. The clothes were a smaller size and people said “you look great “ but I couldn’t see it. Do you have suggestions for how to change that kind perspective?

I'm feeling borderline depressed and unmotivated to do anything.  I feel like I spend all my time planning, prepping, and cleaning for my household, with very little gratitude and appreciation.  And half the time I feel like I'm just wasting my time and energy on things that only matter to me. I know what I need to do. I know what I want to do.  But why should I do them if it doesn't matter to anyone else? How can I stay motivated when no one else around me is or even cares?

I signed up for your Breaking Barriers course in June, it is now November and I have yet to complete it, not because I am too busy, but I forget to make it a priority and I get lazy.    So my question .... do you think I would do better in the twelve weeks to transformation group? I think I may need more accountability.
