Episode 25: The Excuses We Let Ourselves Get Away With
If you follow anyone on social media anything to do with the fitness industry, you'll no doubt have seem some kind of rant about "stop making excuses, I work hard" and blaaah blaaah blaaah.This ISN'T one of those rants. ALL of us have something in our lives that we aren't taking action on. Something too hard, or too audacious. Or, frankly, too boring.We all have excuses we tell ourselves, subconsciously, that enables us to do nothing.That's what today is about. It's not a rant about you not trying hard enough, it's a conversation about something we may not even be aware of.

Episode 24: Building Communities
At a workshop in the Midwest of the USA (yes, I went there!), someone said to me I bet you never find another community like this. Her gym was SO important to her life. It's kind of like that quote about dogs that Jake tells me every day... "Everyone thinks they have the best dog. And the wonderful thing is that none of them are wrong." The truth is I have found other communities like hers. Hundreds of them, all over the world. Today's podcast is about these wonderful communities, and why group training is SO much better than solo.

Episode 23: Getting Serious with Defining Moments
This week I talk about defining moments. My Uncle passed away suddenly last week, and this week I was up in Brisbane for his funeral. For almost everyone the passing of our friends and family are enormously impactful milestones in our lives. It got me thinking about the defining moments in my life, and the positive lessons they taught me.

Episode 22: My Three Least Favourite Words
Raw. Authentic. Vulnerable. These days, the three most misused words in the English language. Raw used to mean scraped knees. Vulnerable means weak. And for something to be "authentic", by definition it has to be an imitation of something else. Join me as I rant about my three least favourite words.

Episode 21: These Are a Few of My Favourite Things
“Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens... blah blah blah something, something with mittens...” OK, little do you know that’s actually how I sing it. And Jake asked, “Please don’t sing.” Except without a question mark. To get my own back I roped him into helping with today’s podcast: all about our favourite things. In this episode I take you, and poor Jake, through an exercise that gets you focusing on the things in your life that you love, that bring you joy and happiness.

Episode 20: The 100 Year Challenge
LOSE 5 KILOS IN 5 DAYS!!! Now I have your attention, wouldn’t it be amazing if that fairy tale was actually true? Everywhere we look we see pills, potions and promises. Transformations, challenges and blitzes fill our feeds on instagram. They all promise the world if you “just do a”. Or b. Or c. And only for a few days! Boy, wouldn’t that be amazing if it were true? But it’s not true. It’s nonsense. Which is why I’m introducing the 100 year challenge. The 100 year challenge fills the gap between your latest 30 day challenge and your inevitable death: lonely, single, and fat. The 100 year challenge is about living well. Eating well. Loving large. Living with passion and enthusiasm. EVERY DAY. Not just beating yourself one miserable monthly challenge at a time.

Episode 19: Pain, Comfort and a little bit of Creativity
I need to make an apology. Until recently i’ve been quite preachy. I’ve imposed my comfort zones onto others, saying and thinking stupid things like, “if you miss a workout or eat something “bad”, it’s because YOU DIDN’T WANT IT BAD ENOUGH”. But that’s because my life is set up to facilitate fitness, and having food as a top 3 priority. It’s easy for me. Some people have children. Some people have disabled children. Some people have very demanding careers. Some people just don’t give a shit about that last 1% of body fat. What’s easy and difficult for me is very different to what’s easy or difficult for you. Fitness professionals, myself included, need to acknowledge exactly that. Growth doesn’t occur for you in, or out of, someone else’s comfort zone. If you truly want to extend yourself, stop kidding yourself that what’s easy for you (5x5 deadlifts in your garage) is going to make you better at anything else just because it’s hard for someone else to devote themselves to the training. And stop kidding yourself that what’s hard for you is unnecessary because, believe me, making sacrifices you would find impossible is easy as pie for other people. Today’s episode of the Peanut Butter Podcast, “Pain, Comfort, and a little bit of Creativity” is out, and on fire.

Episode 18: Back in Melbourne
Back in the land of electric kettles and Poppy the Pug-alier, I met and got involved in multiple communities along the 3400km way to Perth. Meeting and connecting with so many people, a few themes came up repeatedly: why do we keep doing things that make us feel like shit? Why are we so dependent on external validation? And what the fuck am I supposed to eat?!

Outback Adventure Part 3: Margaret River to... Margaret River?
Last week we left Perth to return to Melbourne. Driving south, after a few hours we landed in Margaret River and... stayed for a week because it's so bloody amazing. In this week's instalment of the Outback Adventure I talk about how the complete stripping of every comfort I thought I needed in life has changed my outlook and perspective on living. I didn't expect to fall in love with Australia.

Outback Adventure Part 2: Ceduna to Perth
We made it to Perth! In this episode we talk about the experiences of living in a van for two whole weeks, 3 days without phone reception (the horror!) and Saxon hunting bandicoots in Perth. From Ceduna to Perth, 1900kms, watching the Milky Way over immaculate white-sand beaches in the Australian outback with no phone, no internet, and no power: just me, my thoughts, and my creativity.

Outback Adventure Part 1: Warrnambool to Ceduna
With a workshop in Warrnambool, and another in Perth, somehow Jake convinced me that driving 7000kms between the two was a good idea. In a campervan. A long way from the nearest Lululemon store. I have a van, two German Shorthaired Pointers, a hairy Englishman and a Skierg. In this episode we talk about what's happened in the first 1500kms!

Episode 15: Perseverance and Food with Casey Easton
One of the first people I met the first time I came to Boulder was Casey Easton, the owner of the enormously successful Food Lab - a place where people gather, learn, cook and eat - and the enormous adorable Mike, her Dogue de Bordeaux. From divorced and sleeping on friends' couches to a phenomenal business, this is Casey's story of where perseverance leads.

Episode 14: Creating Concept2 with Peter and Dick Dreissigacker
In 1975 Peter and Dick Dreissigacker started along a path that led to what many of us are familiar with: the Concept2 Rowing machine and Skierg. What started out as creating oars for themselves has grown into a business that operates in 33 countries, and a not-for-profit outdoor centre that brings some much needed life experience to children from all over America. In this episode I sit down with the engineers behind Concept2 at their head office in the jaw-droppingly beautiful Vermont.

Episode 13: Sometimes, you just have to laugh.
This week’s podcast is titled “sometimes, you just have to laugh.” The instagram snapshot of travel is all roses, champagne and caviar. But the reality is spilled raspberry vodka and sanitary pads. The instagram snapshot is comfy seats on the plane. But the reality is 9 hour delays in Las Vegas and avalanches in Yellowstone. In this episode I talk about everything that DIDN’T make it to Instagram on this last 8 weeks touring the US…

Episode 12: Tired is Tired
Coming from the jaw-dropping magnificence of Yellowstone National Park, this episode is recorded in the company of Grizzly bears, Black bears, Elk, Moose and oodles of deer. In this episode I talk about what my super power would be if I could choose it, choosing rest instead of more work, and choosing self-love over our other commitments.

Episode 11: Don't Be Afraid to Pivot
The little MIA we've had from the podcast was not planned... After considering throwing in the towel and just getting a job (NB: I did not get a job.), today's episode is about what you can do when you just can't keep all your balls in the air, where the podcast has been, and where it's going.

Episode 10: Let the magic begin.
We all know by now that the magic occurs in the execution. Things happen when we do something about it. So how then so we take our core values - those things that drive us - and implement them on a daily basis. Is it even possible? Do we need to quit our job, sell our possessions, leave our relationships, create MASSIVE change, in order to do so? My answer is no. But what you do have to shift is the awareness you have about your life and your attitude to the possibility of creating something even better.

Episode 9: What is your driving force?
This series is all about becoming the driving force in your own life, and in this episode I talk about how switching your perspective from being outcome oriented to process oriented - aka day to day life - is the key to loving every minute of your life. “We look so far ahead at what we want the end result to be that we either ignore the process, detach from the process or hate every minute of it, and simply put up with it in order to reach the end goal. That’s a recipe for short term discomfort, and long term failure.”

Episode 8: Core Values, and all that stuff.
Outside in. That’s how most people operate, responding to things that happen to them. Living in a reactionary way, only acting when something nudges them, always waiting for something to happen to them, rather than making it happen. But if you switch to “inside out”, you’ll find a life with drive. A life with passion, and a life with excitement. A life that goes where you want it to go, because you’re the one directing it.

Episode 7: Never Stop Progressing
I used to call this stage "perseverance", but I changed to "never stop progressing" because persevere made it seem like a struggle. And while the truth is that it's never actually over, "Never Stop Progressing" is about living with passion and purpose, and building a direction based on intent. It's about taking action every single day, and revisiting each step over and over, in the hope of sustaining the bliss point of balance, happiness and drive, every single day.
