12/13/2018
More
This week’s J&C episode is all about fancy coffee, the worst kind of internet people, and some listener Q&A. We talk about why “just being honest” should really be called “just being a jerk,” why it’s important to be authentic but still self-aware with your internet presence, and most importantly, why Joy needs a new fancy coffee maker.

Believe it or not, 2018 is wrapping up – and we have a lot of processing to do. We start this week’s J&C episode with reflecting a little bit about the past year, and then discuss a list of things that everyone *should* be able to do by age 40 – from learning how to stop apologizing, to feeling good about going to bed at 8pm if you want to.

We are so excited to welcome Steph Hammerman back to the podcast this week (you can check out her first appearance in Episode 110)! Quite a few things have changed since the last time we had Steph on the podcast, from meeting the man of her dreams to conquering Lymphoma, and now becoming the proud owner of her new gym, Hammer Driven Fitness.

11/29/2018
More
Claire had a birthday this week (Happy Birthday!), so of course this week’s J&C episode starts with some reflections from her 30th year, and thoughts going into 31.

Happy Thanksgiving!! We are so thankful for YOU, our GGW community. And to show our gratitude, this week our J&C episode is joined by the MOST special guest – Mom Sandy!

11/15/2018

This week is basically a therapy sesh, so we hope you’re ready to feel your feelings! Claire talks about some recent conversations with her therapist (who, sadly, is actually not Joy), and we dive deep into perfectionism, how it can serve us, and mostly how it can backfire.

We loved sitting down with Christina Rice at the #PODCASTHARD event in Tahoe a few weeks ago!

11/8/2018

Joy’s NYC marathon plans didn’t work out, and we talk about the line between proving you can push through hard circumstances, and knowing when to take a break.

Bonus Episode: Postpartum Mood Disorders with Noelle Tarr

10/12/2018
More
This bonus episode is a special conversation between Claire and Noelle Tarr of Coconuts & Kettlebells and the Well Fed Women Podcast. Both Claire and Noelle experienced serious postpartum mood disorders following the births of their first children, and we have always felt that these topics just aren’t talked about widely enough.
