Transform Your Body - Transform Your Business - Transform Your Life
Do you ever feel like life is just sort of happening to you?
You meander through your days on autopilot. From home, to work, and then back home.
You absently kiss your partner. You passively play with your kids.
And while there are occasional moments of sheer and utter joy like on your wedding day, or during your yearly vacation, by and large it feels like you're just passing the time.
What a shitty way to live when you put it that way, huh? And unfortunately, it's how must of us sail through life, from cradle to grave.

If you listened to last week's podcast episode, you'll remember my girl Gio's woeful complaints about her tendency to stop reaching for her goals once she got 80% of the way there.
In other words, if she were running a marathon, she'd get to mile 20 on the track, stop...

We've all been there, right?
You get that initial spark of motivation that comes from a new year, an upcoming beach vacation, or a spark of an amazing idea.
And then you go to work on your gym habit, or you start the diet, or you start heavily researching how to launch that Etsy shop or how to publish your own book.
You're energized by your new goal and are sprinting towards the possibilities your future holds.

So, you want to know why you're dragging and lagging, even though you consistently get 7-8 hours of shut eye...
I totally get your frustration, that used to be me. I could get 12 hours of sleep and still practically be holding my eyes open.
I was desperate for an answer. I was young, I ate healthier than most people my age, I exercised; there was no obvious reason for this chronic exhaustion I was facing.
I was willing...
I have a confession to make.
I am an absolute, 100%, self-help junkie. And I have been this way for as long as I can remember.
I mean we're talking about buying confidence-building books in middle school while all my friends were enjoying tween magazines and vampire romance novels.
But I'll be honest, while I loved reading anything personal development I could get my hands on, it wasn't penetrating my daily life.
I would get all amped up about speaking up and being heard, and...
July. It seems like a good time for reflecting. We're half way through the year and can look back at our New Years resolutions and see if we need to get re-engaged with our goals, or maybe even set bigger ones.
But I wanted to look back further than New Years. See, this past week, I reached the end of my day-planner and I always find it fun to look back and see what I was working on a year ago.
And man you guys... I have failed a LOT over the past 365 days. I mean, almost everything I was...
I cannot begin to tell you how many conversations I have had about alcohol lately.
Friends, clients, and family are all coming to me with the same stories and the same problems. Tell me if you can relate...
They're working on their fitness goals, they're working to lose weight, or they're looking to just live a healthier lifestyle.
They're getting their workouts in, they're eating well, and they're getting decent sleep, but there's one problem.
Every single time they go out with their...

When Bryan and I first started dating 3 years ago, we were in very similar places.
We were both entrepreneurs, foodies, and fitness junkies.
We both had a history of dating narcissists and were looking for a healthy relationship.
And we both loved taking random Tuesday afternoons off to walk the Katy trail, catch a movie, or find a place to practice some acroyoga.
You guys know I talk a lot about unleashing your inner bad ass warrior.
But what the heck does that even mean??
I mean, it's nice to say and all, and it sounds cool, but seriously, how do you go from just living your life, going through the motions, following all the rules, to stepping into your bad ass warrior identity? Especially if you don't feel much like a bad ass warrior.
Sister... I got your back.
Which is why today I'm going through the 11 steps, or the 11 commandments if you will, of owning your inner bad...
I had such an interesting conversation with one of my clients the other day; it had me both surprised, and also really wanting to write this for you today.
She told me how she was really enjoying going on these long, 3-5 mile walks lately. But as she said it, she was sort of chuckling to herself.
When I asked her why she was giggling, she told me her reason for loving those walks was really kind of ridiculous and embarrassing. Of course now I had to know.
"It's because I've been daydreaming."
