Choose Your Top 5 "Influencers" Consciously
You’ve set goals. You’re super psyched. And then you tell your family and friends about it and …
Much to your surprise, they aren’t super psyched. In fact, they might even roll their eyes and say something like “here we go again” or “I’ll believe it when I see it.”
And some may even get upset about your goals … because it could mean fewer nights out or changing up your family routine!
It’s pretty normal for this to happen.
In fact, it’s one of the top concerns I hear from n…

Don't Get Ahead of Yourself
“Don’t get ahead of yourself.”
That phrase used to drive me crazy when I was a kid! It felt like grown-ups were always trying to hold me back.
But they weren’t. They wanted me to reach my goals – and I’m sharing this with you today to help YOU reach your own goals.
→ The only thing you can control is what you do TODAY.
It’s human nature to want to speed ahead – to focus on where you want to be, instead of where you are now.
But the fastest route to your goals is to focus on TODAY.
If you’re struggling right now with your goals, it’s NORMAL.
If you’ve slipped up with your “clean eating” goals, make sure the VERY NEXT thing you eat is a healthy choice. Remember: you’re always just one meal or snack from a healthy diet.
If you’re feeling *this close* to giving up any of your other healthy habits – just keep going.
It’s not about striving for perfection. NO ONE is perfect – we ALL struggle. It’s part of being human.

You tell yourself: “I’m going to start working out 3 times a week.”
Then suddenly you realize you need to get some new sneakers, a new set of workout clothes, and maybe even shop for some protein powder while you’re at it.
The list keeps growing — and before you know it? It’s February and you haven’t even started.
The thing is, the new workout clothes, the shoes, the protein powder… It's all just bus…
You're Welcome! My 3-Step Excuse Buster
Has this ever happened to you before?
You’re planning on making dinner after work … but as soon as it’s time to start cooking, you start to think:
- I'm too tired
- I don’t know what to make
- I'm too hungry to wait that long
- I have too much to do
- I'm stressed
- I really just want to watch something on Netflix
And you’re tempted to give in and hit the drive-through (or make the takeout call).

If you could call out the #1 enemy of your goals, what would it be?
There are so many to choose from:

Setting goals is great.
And setting FUN and meaningful goals is even better.
But what happens AFTER you light that spark of motivation?
Here’s one of my favorite quotes:
“Motivation will get you going, but discipline will keep you growing.”
The other day I mentioned how our brains are hardwired to like trying new things (aka fun goals).
Well, I believe we’re also hardwired to admire discipline.
Just think of all the inspirational movies that have become classics over the years!
