John's Whirlwind Week and Delicious Drive-Thru Options

7/8/2020
Another week of quarantine and tensions rising. John ended his last episode recording and the rest of his week was a whirlwind of anxiety, sickness and a death scare! But luckily, everyone is OK. Life isn’t easy for many of us, and while staying healthy is important, there’s a lot we’re all juggling. We want to take this opportunity to remind yourself to have grace for yourself and others.

DDP Yoga, Making Healthy Choices for Weight-Loss, and Some Very Salty Language!

6/23/2020
Watch the LIVE Recording: https://www.facebook.com/John.bukenas/videos/10223313740288740/ We are starting to focus on making good choices and John is even trying out yoga! We also got a bit carried away with our discussion and we run a little long in this episode. Also, STRONG LANGUAGE ALERT around 55 minutes in — we mark our podcast as explicit anyway, but we want you to know that the C-word is used quite a bit. While we're comfortable saying it, not everyone is comfortable hearing it....

A Question About Sweetener and Intermittent Fasting

5/18/2020
Watch the LIVE Recording: https://www.facebook.com/John.bukenas/videos/10223238426085932/ We got a question before the show we spend some time going through about using sweetener with Intermittent Fasting and we go into it a bit. We also talk about how COVID is affecting our lives — we’re in the Northeast so it’s pretty much all around us. And can you tell our ADHD went a little wild on this show? When we record this, we are currently in the midst of the Covid-19/coronavirus pandemic. We...

Spirit Week Challenge is Declared!

4/20/2020
We’re in yet another week of Quarantine but we’re grateful we’ve been on this health journey together. At the time of this recording, Emily was finishing up a Spirit Week Challenge where she dressed up for theme days every day for a week. And John has decided he’s going to hunker down once he started reading about how those in the obese/morbidly obese camp are more susceptible. Everyone, stay safe out there! We’re so grateful you choose to spend your time with us and we hope we continue to...

This Quarantine Is Starting to Get to Us

4/13/2020
Sorry for the late-releasing episodes! We're still trying to adjust our schedules for our own client work, as well as this podcast. We're both adapting to our quarantines and it's a stressful time, for sure. John is a bit hungover on today's episode and has recently shaved his head. And Emily is dealing with a sick spouse (not COVID, thankfully) but it's still stressful on top of everything else. We talk a lot about our current situations, which as you may know if you’re listening to this...

PMS, Dieting, and Quarantine AKA The Season of Our Discontent

4/6/2020
This episode was recorded in the beginning of April 2020 for context. We're still getting used to the temporary new-normal of staying indoors and self-quarantining for our own safety. It requires us to learn more planning skills that, luckily, we have already been working on with our own diets. But not like this. In fact, Emily has taken to calling the combination of this + PMS "The Season of Our Discontent". Good thing we still have our sense of humor, although John has deemed himself an...

Weight Loss in a Time of Coronavirus

Heads up: We normally don’t censor ourselves on the show, but we do talk about a very mature podcast a bit in the beginning. If you want to skip all that, we finish talking about it by the 18:00-minute mark. It’s a Pearl-Clutcher! We talk a lot about our current situations, which as you may know if you’re listening to this around the time it comes out, is the COVID-19 social distancing stuff. It’s important to mention, as we do every episode, we are not doctors. Please refer to the CDC...

Gratitude is the Attitude & Stop Touching Your Face!

3/23/2020
Heads up: This episode was recorded on March 19th, so keep that in mind if we’re behind on the current events when you listen to this. We were all this together when we were dieting, and now we’re all in this together when it comes to staying home and stopping the spread of COVID-19. This week, we’re starting to get used to our new life of quarantining ourselves and keeping ourselves separated from others. There’s a little bit of stress eating popping up in our lives, as well, but we try...

Yay! Emily is back this week! And she’s working on getting back to her own self lately. A head’s up. This episode was recorded March 12, 2020. At the time of recording, we were just beginning social distancing and learning about the seriousness of COVID-19.

Dieting on Vacation, Running Amok and Couch Jeans from the Universe

2/24/2020
What happens when you go on vacation while doing Intermittent Fasting? Well, Emily found out on her big family vacation! In fact, it’s a whirlwind of a story, which includes Emily’s actual ideal vacation of driving for hours in nature, calling on her “boot and rally” days from college to get her through taking too many vitamins on an empty stomach, and Couch Jeans from the Universe. Wow. Are these show notes or the back of a family comedy from the ‘80s VHS? Meanwhile, while Emily was...

Dieting Through Hell Week + Accountability Challenge Success!

Emily’s getting ready for a family vacation, on top of crazy work stuff, on top of the current events —it’s a recipe for the perfect storm in Emily’s world and there’s even a funny story about what happens when you throw a rock in the woods, craving mall pretzels, and prom dresses! OK, I’m building up this story a lot, but I promise this episode will be an interesting side of Emily in Panic Mode. In better news, John’s special lady friend is visiting and he is having a ball, but making sure...
