There are 3 things I've just begun practicing to improve both my health and my happiness. In today's episode, I'm sharing them with you and giving some examples of what the practice looks like in my daily life.

I'm already convinced that these will improve my relationships AND increase my productivity and success!

I'd love to know if any (or all) of these 3 resonate with you OR if there are other changes you're working to incorporate into your life and how I can help!

Insecurity. Fear of what others think. We're going there today, not to have a theoretical discussion, but to talk about strategies and perspectives that will help each one of us stop letting those feelings limit our lives.

It's a choice. We feel those feelings, think those thoughts and face those fears but we don't need to submit to them.

If you have follow-up questions or comments on this topic, I strongly encourage you to DM me on Instagram, email me or comment on the show notes page so we can continue this conversation and start living more fully!

Today I have the great pleasure of talking with Jimmy Moore and his wife Christine (a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner) about their newest book, Real Food Keto.

First and foremost, this episode is about far more than ketogenic diets. Even if you aren't a ketogenic eater, you want to listen to this episode.

I was so excited to see a book come on the market that focuses on real food and nutrient density. Sure, there are lots of bars and shakes out there. There are an increasing number of keto cookies and brownies and paleo desserts. In fact, there are so many of these type of things that a lot of people are losing sight of HEALTH.

For the sake of health, longevity, mood, energy and overall wellness, our food choices must be about more than impact on our waist line and overall flavor. Nutrient density matters.

I could rant about this for days and weeks, but instead, let's dive into the conversation with Jimmy & Christine. We have a thoughtful conversation about dietary individuality, myths surrounding ketogenic diets and the critical importance of nutrient density.

If you have questions about this book or want to dive deeper into any of the topics, be sure to leave a comment and let me know!
https://primalpotential.com/542/

You can get Real Food Keto on Amazon here.

Have you ever heard of the first rule of holes?

I'm happy to share it with you. The first rule of holes is: stop digging.

If you want to create a change in your life, the first thing you have to do is change the way you think. If you want to create a solution in your life, you have to stop arguing for, justifying and reinforcing the problem.

In today's episode, we'll talk through examples and strategies. Don't miss it! If you have follow up questions, be sure to leave a comment here on the show notes page, email me or direct message me on instagram!

Fact: We all get older.

Myth: Getting older means increased body fat, decreased energy, memory issues, joint pain and chronic illness.

You can age well. You can get or stay lean. You can maintain energy and cognitive function.


Fact: We all have genes.

Myth: Genes determine how you age.

We can control the expression of our genes. We can turn gene expression on or off, up or down, by the way we eat, sleep, move and stress.

I'm not immune to temptation or moments of apathy. I absolutely have moments, days and even weeks where I think thoughts like, "Who cares? What's the point?"

I absolutely have moments (and days) when I want to eat all the things that aren't nailed down.

I'm not different from most people in that regard. However, I might be a little different in how I respond to them.

In today's episode, I'm sharing a simple and powerful strategy I use to win the hard moments in my life.

If you struggle with temptation, apathy or mentally checking out, this is a great episode for you!

I hope everyone listens to this episode! My friend: once you go beyond the wonderful age of 30, you will lose muscle mass unless you intentionally and consistently work to maintain or increase it.

This rate of muscle loss can range from 3-8% per decade! Think about that! You could have 16% less muscle mass by the age of 50!

Why does this matter?

Contrary to popular belief, this isn't just a cosmetic issue related to body composition. It's not just about strength, balance and mobility.

We need to take action to prevent muscle loss and faciliate muscle building in order to stay healthy, prevent diabetes, have a healthy metabolism and much, more more.

Sarcopenia, or age-related muscle wasting, is both reversible and preventable. Today we will explore the systemic impact of sarcopenia on your health and discuss what you can do about it! Don't miss this episode!

What's your bliss point? That's the conversation I want to have with you as we go into the holiday season.

For me, feeling amazing during the holidays has as much to do with my mindset as it does to do with my choices. Probably even more. I used to go into the holidays with a ton of anxiety. I was worried about the food that would be available. I worried about overeating and I worried about restriction and missing out.

It didn't work. I wasn't happy. I wasn't enjoying myself.

Now, I think about my bliss point. The intersection of enjoyment and feeling amazing.

This is actually a common marketing term!

A bliss point is the amount of consumption that maximizes a customer's satisfaction for a particular good or service. For example, the bliss point of ice cream might be one small bowl and the bliss point for travel might be one trip a month. A customer who exceeds their bliss point may feel stressed, unsatisfied or regretful. Bliss point is purely related to a customer's needs and wants as opposed to budget. It has implications for product design, customer experience, diversification and pricing. (Simplicable.com)

As you go into a holiday, a family meal or even a weekend or evening out - what is the intersection of feeling great about your choices and fully enjoying yourself?

Too many of us stay busy doing things that don't really matter. We live in a self-created vortex of tasks and work, rarely pausing to consider:

  • Is this necessary?
  • Is it working?
  • Is it improving my life?
  • Is the return on this worth the time and energy it requires?

I read something the other day that I'm certain will improve my relationships, my work-life and my health. Not surprisingly, it wasn't about relationships or health; it was about real estate.

When rennovating homes, most people spend money where it doesn't need to be spent. They aren't disciplined in how they deploy their funds. To counteract this tendency, they're taught to break down potential home improvements into the following categories:

  1. Necessary and increases value
  2. Unnecessary and increases value
  3. Necessary and does not increase value
  4. Unnecessary and does not increase value

In today's episode of the podcast, we're talking about the application of this practice to our task lists, our communication and our goals.

I hope you enjoy it!

If I challenged you to complete a broad jump - to leap forward as far as you can - where would you place your feet before jumping? If your feet are spread too wide, you lose power. You can't initate a powerful leap if your feet are spread wider than your hips. Similarly, you can't jump as far if your feet are too close together. It's pretty common for fitness coaches and trainers to correct someone's stance. If your feet aren't in the right place, you can't perform well.

The same thing is true in life. Your power stance, in life, isn't about where you put your feet but rather where you put your attention. If your attention is on the past or the future, you're losing power to take full advantage of the moment you're in.

If you want to immediately become a more powerful change agent in your own life, listen to today's episode.

Recently, a few of my 12 Weeks to Transformation clients asked if I'd be willing to do a podcast on the idea of emotional sobriety. Of course I said yes! One of the most insidious barriers to change is going through your life making decisions in moments when your under the influence of emotion.

If you continue to let emotions dominate your decision making progress, you'll continue to struggle.

In today's episode we talk about recognizing when you're under the influence of emotion, increasing your emotional resilience and a practice for minimizing the choices you make when your rational mind is clouded by emotion.

What is the metabolic effect of overeating or binging? While we can mentally and emotionally reset, our body isn't so quick to reset just because it's a new day.

I don't know about you, but I used to convince myself that each new day was a reset. While that is absolutely true for each day (and even each moment) in our minds, we can't deny that there are lasting metabolic and hormonal effects to overeating and binging.

In today's episode we're going to talk about prolonged fat loss impairment, chronic stress and hormonal imbalances that result from overeating and binging.

I have found that when I understand (accurately) what is happening in my body as a result of my choices, I think through my decisions more carefully. I hope you enjoy the episode!

If I could wave my magic wand and change your mind in some way, here are the three things I would immediately change...

Before I tell you what they are, let me tell you how this came about. I have a personal coaching practice that helps me help my clients. I routinely ask myself, "What are my clients teaching me? If I could wave my magic wand and give them a skill or perspective that would make their lives easier, what would I give them?"

This keeps me from getting frustrated and helps me focus on what they need and how I'll give it to them.

The other day, in between workouts, my inbox was blowing up with emails from new clients. Since a new 12 Weeks to Transformation recently started, there are a lot of questions, a lot of eagerness and even a lot of desperation. Instead of getting frustrated, I asked myself one of those questions:

If I could wave my magic wand and give these clients something that would help them create change in their lives, what would I give them?


Today's podcast is my answer to that question!

In each episode between now and the end of the year, I'm determined to help you make progress, one day at a time. Today, we're taking a look at what isn't working for you right now. When we evaluate, without drama or judgement, what's not working and what's holding you back, we step into a tremendous amount of power.

From there, we're going to establish new options. What else could you do? What could you adjust, just for today?

We aren't trying to change everything at all once, but what we're looking to identify today are the destructive choices that happen either most often or have the most significant impact on your life.

If you're ready to make small changes that will create a big impact, don't miss today's episode!

In episode 521 of the podcast, I shared my personal story of becoming debt free. I go into detail about how I started, the process I followed and how I handled struggles like my then-husband not being totally on-board with the idea. I also had my sister on the show - she is currently paying down her debt and overcoming the hurdles of massive student loans and a modest salary. In today's episode I'm answering all your questions about money and debt including:

  • How to start when you've been ignoring your financial situation
  • How to become debt free when you're barely making ends meet
  • How to stick to a budget
  • How to budget for personal indulgences (new clothes, spa treatments, etc)
  • How to handle a spouse who is a spender when you're a saver
  • How to prioritize weight loss while getting out of debt
  • How to eat healthy on a budget
  • How to save and invest at the same time

Getting out of debt changed my life. I wasn't always good with my money. I didn't make much and I spent more than I took home. Getting out of debt didn't happen quickly and it wouldn't have happened at all if I continued to make excuses and prioritize pleasure over happiness.

Last week on Instagram, I asked you guys to vote on which topic you'd rather hear about today: fasting or getting out of debt. Those were the two topics about which I got the most questions and "debt" won by a landslide! Thanks so much to everyone who voted and submitted questions!

In today's episode, I'm going to share my personal journey of getting out of debt and answer YOUR questions on all topics money!

Recently, one of my summer clients shared a bit of her transformation with me - she's lost weight, improved her mood, eliminated her cravings and overcome a sugar addiction. I asked if she'd be willing to share some of the steps she took and she's sharing her journey with us today on the podcast! We talk about how to create change without willpower and keep success simple - really, really simple.

One of the ideas we discuss on the show that I think you're really going to connection with is:

You don't know how bad you feel until you start making yourself feel better. You don't know how much better you can feel until you stop making yourself feel so bad.
