As we near the end of The Suck It, Temptation! Challenge, I have something to share with you.
I started the challenge because I was eating like crap. I was taking every opportunity that came my way because my mind was in when-am-I-ever-gonna-get-this-chance-again mode.
And I’m pleased to say that I am back down to (pret-ty close to) the size I was when I left just by moderating my opportunities to...

Workout video: Done!
Check one thing off the life list.
I found out pretty late in the game that the video was happening, so I ended up tacking on a 2nd 30-day challenge to January’s Keep Going 30-Day Challenge. I’ve been on more than a 60-day challenge! …well, I may have taken a couple days in between to have a few cookies…
I kicked my a** for this video. I trained unlike...

As a trainer, I hear every day how unhappy people are with themselves:
There’s just this roll here…
My arms are too small…
I just can’t lose the weight…
…and I always try to get them to look on the bright side. It’s my job, yes, and I do have to be able to coach them to results no matter what their goals, but this is actually a crucial step of the process.

Yay, it’s a fitness post!
I’m always talking about goals goals goals because I know, in my life, how crucial they are to keeping me motivated.
I just opened up a special Facebook group to some of The 30×30 donors and so far, two people are in race training for Spring races.
Training for a race is one of the best forms of motivation. If you’re starting out in exercise, nothing will...

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” -Neale Donald Walsch
Who hasn’t heard that quote?
Who has heard it so many times that you just write it off as more personal development mumbo jumbo?
Well, don’t worry: that’s the last time I’ll quote it… today.
The fact is that it holds a lot of truth. Extraordinary lives aren’t created out of half-assed-ness...

You made it!
30 days later and you’re healthier for having stuck to your guns. Sure, it was hard sometimes. It was frustrating and different than anything you’ve done before.
But how are you feeling now? How much more energized, clear-headed...

We’re halfway through the “Keep Going 30-Day Challenge,” and it’s probably a little tough at this point.
Your old cravings may be fighting for attention.
Your body might be tired and sore from your new workout routine.
You might be getting fed-up with the constant practice of catching negative thoughts and replacing them with positive ones.
I can tell you that, personally, I could...

Are you afraid of taking those big dreams of yours and making them realities?
You, my friend, are not alone.
For so long, I was afraid to take big steps. I was afraid to dream bigger because I knew it would hurt more to fall from such heights.
I was afraid of living up to my potential because I was afraid I would fail… miserably.
This big dream doesn’t have to be some grandiose vision. It can...

That’s how I felt when I first got interested in health and fitness. There are so many sources of information spouting out conflicting advice! I had no idea who to listen to, so I just tried the most popular advice.
…NOT the best way to go, unfortunately.
What I didn’t realize when I started getting healthy was that much of the advice in health magazines, shows,...

There was no death and destruction. The armageddon did not rob us of our hopes and dreams.
December 21st, 2012 came and went and we’re still here.
Many people thought that, since the Mayan calendar ended on 12-21-12, the world would end. They thought we would lose everything.
In honor of this life we are still living, and those hopes and dreams we still have the opportunity to go after, I believe we...

It’s easy to get lost in the hecticness of the holidays. When our overarching goal of making others happy and spreading cheer trumps our own goals, however, we have a problem.
This is the part of the year that tests our strength most.
Can you make time for your own holiday wishes this season?
At this time of year, we must remember our priorities. In order for you to be able to truly experience the...

Have you ever believed in something so deeply, fought for something so unbelievably risky, that you feel like you may just combust from the effort?
Because this dream, this life you see for yourself, this reality you’re already living in your mind, would be such a devestating loss if it fell apart?
Many of us get to this point, only to turn back around.
The imminent depth of emotion scares us to...

You’d be surprised the amount of times I hear, “I can’t,” every day…
“I can’t lift that”
“I can’t stop eating that”
“I can’t think like that”
“I can’t make time for that”
“I can’t do this”
In the past, I’d listen to them and seriously consider the person’s argument, trying...
