556: Standing on the Shoulders of Your Story

First we make our stories, then our stories make us. We are story tellers. You are a master story teller. Whether you're conscious of it or not, you make about stories about everything that happens around you, about every choice you make, every single day. When I say "stories" that DOESN'T mean you made something up. Your story is the meaning you attach to your experiences. Your story can take you to new heights or it can overwhelm you and lead to you to isolate yourself and feel...


555: Why It STILL Feels So Hard

I used to think in terms of what I didn't want. I didn't want to be so overweight. I didn't want to overeat so frequently. I didn't want to feel so out of control. I didn't want to be unhappy, lonely or isolated. I didn't want to have so much debt. You get the picture. If I had to choose a sound effect to represent how I felt at that point in my life, it would have been a groan. Ugh. Exasperation. Frustration. Resignation. Irritation. Disappointment. At least once a day, someone asks me...


554: I'm Fixing This Health Mistake I Made

I've been thinking a lot about the life & business I want to create in 2019. I shared a lot of those details in episode 549 of the podcast. I missed out on a LOT of my life. There are decades, relationships and experiences that I can't get back. In saying "yes" to food, saying "no" to happiness and relationships, I destroyed a lot of relationships and experiences. I don't want to live that way naymore. In fact, I refuse to live that way. But here's the very important thing: it's not just...


553: Chaos Without Crisis

I used to use stress, pressure, chaos and crisis as reasons to not take care of myself. As soon as life got hard, I'd stop trying. I'd stop making good food choices, I'd stop going to the gym, I'd stop being financially responsible. I'd check out. I'll be the first to admit that it's not always easy to do the right things when it feels like you're in crisis mode, but there are a few things I knew for sure: Last week was straight CHAOS for me. I closed on a new property and there were...


552: Chasing Cupcakes

At long, long last, my first book - Chasing Cupcakes - is finally available! It would have been easy to write a book about nutrition, hormones or fat loss, but that's not the book I wanted to write. I wanted to write a book that hadn't already been written. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of amazing books about nutrition, hormones and fat loss. Besides, that wasn't the book I needed when I was deep in my own personal struggle with obesity, binge eating, excuses, exceptions, doubt,...


551: My Food Philosophy

What is my food philosophy? What is yours? Do you have one? Are you living like it? I talk a lot about food and share a lot of the way I eat and the way I don't eat, but today I want to share with you exactly what my food philosophy is. It's not about macros. It's not about calories. It's not even about fat loss. You might be surprised by a few things and I'm so excited to share it with you! Before we dive into the episode: today I shared an opportunity...


550: My Coaching Methodology & Process

Today I'm sharing my coaching method with you. This isn't just how I work with clients, it's how I coach myself. I'm not on a diet and I don't "put" my clients on a diet. I'm not into guilt, drama, negativity, sacrifice or an obsession with a "goal weight". Today I'll share with you my thoughts on paying attention, aligning your thoughts with what you want, creating change via evolution, not revolution, improving your outlook and constantly adjusting. If you are ready to do things...


549: Workshop For Creating Success in 2019

It's the final episode of 2018 and today I'm sharing my process of reflecting on the past year and creating priorities and plans for the one to come. A year-end review is something I've come to love and enjoy at the end of every year. In fact, I've been doing a month-end review for the last several months and I absolutely plan to continue. Join me today to not only hear the structure I follow in these reviews, but also for my reflection on 2018 and my personal and professional plans for the...


548: 3 Strategies to Get Out of Your Own Way

You know what to do but you aren't consistently doing it. You're super clear on the problem, but you aren't holding yourself accountable to taking action on creating the solution. You think about it all the time. You wish things were different. Maybe you're frustrated or sometimes feel disappointed in yourself and your choices. I have those conversations every single day. This week in particular, I had about dozens of phone calls with current clients and there were 3 strategies that kept...


547: 10 Ideas Worth Spreading

We are so quick to spread ideas that are negative. We're quick to share about the problems in our lives or the things that upset us, and while I think being open is valuable, I also think it's high time to start spreading some ideas that make us better - that make us happier and healthier while improving all the relationships in our lives (especially the relationships we have with ourselves). How's that for a big 'ol run-on sentence? In today's episode, I'm sharing 10 powerful thoughts I...


546: Don't Get It Twisted

Not long ago, someone asked me if I'd provide transcripts for the 12 WT weekly challenge webinars. Then, I got a similar question about the format of the 12 Weeks to Transformation. My answer to both requests was the same... "Is the information in the 12 Weeks to Transformation all videos? If so, is there any way to have a transcript of the content? I don't retain information very well when it is presented verbally. I do much better with the written word." Here's the deal, my friend. We...


545: Insecurity & Judgement Part 2

Episode 543 of the podcast was one of the most popular ones to date! By popular demand, we're doing a follow-up episode to talk about how we can improve our responses to what we perceive as judgement from others. If you want to build self confidence, improve your relationships or simply be a happier version of yourself, this episode is for you. We'll be tackling listener questions about judgement from family members and talking through how we can happily & healthily respond to people who...


544: 3 Big Changes I Just Started Making

There are 3 things I've just begun practicing to improve both my health and my happiness. In today's episode, I'm sharing them with you and giving some examples of what the practice looks like in my daily life. I'm already convinced that these will improve my relationships AND increase my productivity and success! I'd love to know if any (or all) of these 3 resonate with you OR if there are other changes you're working to incorporate into your life and how I can...


543: Insecurity & Fear Of Judgement

Insecurity. Fear of what others think. We're going there today, not to have a theoretical discussion, but to talk about strategies and perspectives that will help each one of us stop letting those feelings limit our lives. It's a choice. We feel those feelings, think those thoughts and face those fears but we don't need to submit to them. If you have follow-up questions or comments on this topic, I strongly encourage you to DM me on Instagram, email me or comment on the show notes page so...


542: Real Food Keto

Today I have the great pleasure of talking with Jimmy Moore and his wife Christine (a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner) about their newest book, Real Food Keto. First and foremost, this episode is about far more than ketogenic diets. Even if you aren't a ketogenic eater, you want to listen to this episode. I was so excited to see a book come on the market that focuses on real food and nutrient density. Sure, there are lots of bars and shakes out there. There are an increasing number of...


541: Let Go of the Problem

Have you ever heard of the first rule of holes? I'm happy to share it with you. The first rule of holes is: stop digging. If you want to create a change in your life, the first thing you have to do is change the way you think. If you want to create a solution in your life, you have to stop arguing for, justifying and reinforcing the problem. In today's episode, we'll talk through examples and strategies. Don't miss it! If you have follow up questions, be sure to leave a comment here on...


540: Younger - How to Age Brilliantly

Fact: We all get older. Myth: Getting older means increased body fat, decreased energy, memory issues, joint pain and chronic illness. You can age well. You can get or stay lean. You can maintain energy and cognitive function. Fact: We all have genes. Myth: Genes determine how you age. We can control the expression of our genes. We can turn gene expression on or off, up or down, by the way we eat, sleep, move and stress. It's been a long time since we've done a book review episode...


539: Coaching Myself Through Temptation & Apathy

I'm not immune to temptation or moments of apathy. I absolutely have moments, days and even weeks where I think thoughts like, "Who cares? What's the point?" I absolutely have moments (and days) when I want to eat all the things that aren't nailed down. I'm not different from most people in that regard. However, I might be a little different in how I respond to them. In today's episode, I'm sharing a simple and powerful strategy I use to win the hard moments in my life. If you struggle...


538: If You're Over 30, You Must Listen

I hope everyone listens to this episode! My friend: once you go beyond the wonderful age of 30, you will lose muscle mass unless you intentionally and consistently work to maintain or increase it. This rate of muscle loss can range from 3-8% per decade! Think about that! You could have 16% less muscle mass by the age of 50! Why does this matter? Contrary to popular belief, this isn't just a cosmetic issue related to body composition. It's not just about strength, balance and mobility. We...


537: An Anti-Anxiety Approach to the Holidays

What's your bliss point? That's the conversation I want to have with you as we go into the holiday season. For me, feeling amazing during the holidays has as much to do with my mindset as it does to do with my choices. Probably even more. I used to go into the holidays with a ton of anxiety. I was worried about the food that would be available. I worried about overeating and I worried about restriction and missing out. It didn't work. I wasn't happy. I wasn't enjoying myself. Now, I think...
