EP. 70: Why You Must Call Yourself an Athlete/Motivation Monday

You are an athlete. I know that is a bold statement. But in this episode I share with you exactly why you are and why you must call yourself one. Have you struggled with how you perceive yourself? We have a tendency to shrink away from things, thinking that what we do isn’t important or special. We “shrink” what we do and minimize who we are. When you make decisions on a regular basis to improve yourself you are showing that you are dedicated to the task. In this episode we talk about how...


EP. 69 Busy Mom Scorecard (Anna Baeten)/ Sweat Friends

My sweat friend Anna had a fun idea for today’s show! We are going to walk through our crazy day and talk about all the things we did awesome and all the things we totally bombed on.

EP. 61 Don't Agonize Over Little Calories/ModiRE
