  • 156. The Important Conversation: How Can We Improve Athletes’ Mental Health?

    Mental health is a growing issue in athletes of all levels. Despite this, the mental health struggles among athletes seem to be a taboo topic that no one wants to be a part of in the discussion. Stress, pressure, stigmas, and more prevent athletes from talking about mental health. Let’s work to change that.


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I talk about my mental health journey during the competition and my thoughts regarding the many mental health issues that many athletes are experiencing today.


    Listen to this podcast, and together, let’s fight the stigma revolving around mental health issues among athletes, especially during these trying times.

What Happens When You Go Too Far on Your Self Discovery Journey [pubdate] => 2022-06-13T01:30:00.000-07:00 [link] => [author] => Emily Coffman | Former Athlete, College Health Tips, Food Freedom [imageFile] => [explicit] => [episodeType] => full [seasonNumber] => [episodeNumber] => [subtitle] => [summary] =>

    Do you feel like you’re overdoing it in your self-discovery journey? Maybe it’s because you’re still not happy or fulfilled even after doing all you can find yourself. Although it might sound cliché, happiness and fulfillment is an inside job. Seeking external validation will only make you feel even more lonely and lost. Staying true to who you are and embracing life’s challenges are the only ways to find happiness and fulfillment while still going after your dreams.

    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I speak with Karyn, a happiness mentor, online course creator, teacher, and a thought leader in happiness and women’s empowerment. She shares how taking a spiritual journey almost drove her to a point of wanting to eliminate herself but was able to come back and really connect with the true her.

    Listen in to understand why happiness is an inside job based on your integrity, character, and the choices that make you feel good about yourself.

    Key Takeaways:

    ·      Stop looking for external validation by doing things that don’t add value to who you are.

    ·      How to rediscover your true self in all the ways you’ve been inauthentic to yourself.

    ·      Start normalizing where you’re and realize that feeling alone is part of the human experience.

    ·      Your happiness doesn’t come outside of you; it’s based on your integrity, character, and choices that make you feel good about yourself.

    ·      Start accepting yourself deeply where you are your meaning and purpose instead of seeking those things from outside.

    ·      Stop giving your power away and realize that being unhappy is also an inside job.

    ·      Let go of the fantasy that life is perfect and embrace the ups and downs of it as lessons to grow and become the best version of yourself.

    Episode Timeline:

    ·      [3:15] Karyn on her self-discovery journey gone wrong and how she reconnected with her true self.

    ·      [6:17] How we do things to be validated externally instead of doing what pleases us inside.

    ·      [9:31] How spirituality became another inauthentic experience Karyn overindulged in.

    ·      [11:18] How mentors helped her discover who she was in all the ways she had been untrue to herself.

    ·      [16:33] How to develop happiness and fulfillment from the inside while still going after your goals.

    ·      [20:57] Karyn’s Happiness Course – teaching women to feel good and enough in who they are.

    ·      [23:34] The myth that happiness is a feeling and that it’s different for everyone.

    ·      [26:15] Understand that life isn’t a straight line and accept its challenges to grow and learn.

    Quotes:

    ·      “Looking to the people and things outside of us to give us a sense of meaning and purpose because we feel so empty and meaningless on the inside, and in that is where we get lost from ourselves.”- Keren [8:00]

    ·      “Feeling fulfilled and being happy is about feeling good about yourself on the inside and developing self-value and self-worth.”- Keren [18:39]

As we head to summer, it’s easy to fall for trends like the “that girl” trend that promotes unhealthy lifestyles to achieve a perfect body.

    How do you stay confident after messing up, whether as an athlete or in your workouts? To stay confident and in your game, you must first acknowledge the mistake, how often it happens, and then how you can avoid it in the future. Constantly thinking about your past mistake and losing your confidence won’t help, it will drive you to an even worse situation. Remember that one mistake isn’t a reflection of you, your skills, or your abilities.

    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I share some athlete advice on how to bounce back after messing up. Listen in to learn how to overcome losing your confidence and stay in the present with your race plan as an athlete.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Start by acknowledging the mistake that happened, and then think of the things you’d have changed to avoid the same mistake in the future.
    • Allowing one mistake to affect your confidence will become repeatable and turn into a bigger thing than it initially was.
    • Stop thinking about your past version that made the mistake since it’s keeping you from the present.
    • Think of all the obstacles you’ve overcome in the past and your teammates' trust to stay present and confident.

    Episode Timeline:

    • [2:54] What a Coxswain does plus the message that prompted this conversation.
    • [4:50] Step one of bouncing back – acknowledge the mess up and how often it has happened.
    • [7:45] Step two of bouncing back – think of the things you’d have changed to avoid the mistake.
    • [9:47] Why you should avoid losing your confidence after messing up with one mistake.

    Quotes:

    • “If you let this mistake keep eating away at you or affect your confidence, then you’re going to let this one mistake become repeatable and turn into a bigger thing than it should’ve been.”- Emily [10:15]

    “Gather as much data as you can to point to the fact of why you’re capable and why you should be confident in the seat that you’re in.”- Emily [11:30]

    Have you ever asked yourself “what drives me”? For some it’s external competition; races, meets, games, opponents. For others, it may be internal. 


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I talk about how internal and external competition have affected me and how to make sure you have a healthy dose of each. 


    Listen to this podcast, and let’s change the way we see and treat internal and external competition in our lives.

    Episode Timeline

    [1:04] Emily talks about the reason why she came up with today’s episode.

    [2:02] Emily shares that internal competition motivates her every day.

    [5:57] Emily discusses the importance of competition in life.

    Key Takeaways

    • Internal motivation should not necessarily have a negative connotation.
    • If you let internal competition prevail in your life, there’s a possibility that you will struggle to find satisfaction in things that you do.
    • Some advice you receive might not work because you might have misused it. For example, that could have been for internal competition and not external motivation.
    • No general advice can be applied to everyone. It’s better to look for tailored advice for that specific scenario that you’re in.
    • The more you learn about yourself, the less you rely on outside opinions on what you’re doing. 

    Quotes

    • Neither [internal or external competition] is right or wrong. There’s no one way that competition should look. - Emily [5:47]
    • There can be no one definition of success. There can be no one definition of competition. - Emily [7:52]

    Ever wonder if you could change your diet as an athlete? Especially going plant-based? Before deciding if it’s right for you, it’s best to hear from actual athletes who are vegetarians to gauge if this is right for you.


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I speak with Jenny Kotlyar, a vegetarian athlete and backpacker.


    Listen to this episode and learn about the struggles that you might encounter as a vegetarian athlete and how you could overcome these challenges.

    • When you’re planning to hike, it’s also essential to factor in your protein intake to prepare better. 
    • Carbohydrates give you a quick release of energy. Fats, on the other hand, provide you with sustained energy while protein helps you recover.
    • As a vegetarian backpacker, you might struggle in finding the protein that suits your palate.

    Quotes

    • “Your body’s freaking amazing. Stop hating on yourself.” - Jenny [21:48]

    Mental health is a growing issue in athletes of all levels. Despite this, the mental health struggles among athletes seem to be a taboo topic that no one wants to be a part of in the discussion. Stress, pressure, stigmas, and more prevent athletes from talking about mental health. Let’s work to change that.


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I talk about my mental health journey during the competition and my thoughts regarding the many mental health issues that many athletes are experiencing today.


    Listen to this podcast, and together, let’s fight the stigma revolving around mental health issues among athletes, especially during these trying times.

    • It’s a hard decision for athletes to take a step back to prioritize their mental health.
    • It could benefit our mental health if we acknowledged that more things are a struggle.

    Is plant-based eating as healthy as it seems? Is it beneficial for everyone to go on it? Let’s get the facts straight from the expert herself! 


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I speak with Stephanie Hnatiuk, a registered dietitian and fitness coach who’s on a mission to reconnect runners with their love of running. She helps frustrated and confused overall runners learn how to properly feel their bodies for better training, working smarter, not harder, and recover faster so they can reach their goals without destroying their relationship with food and exercise.


    Listen to this episode as we learn if athletes should transition to a plant-based diet while training.

    Episode Timeline

    [2:39] Stephanie shares her opinion if a plant-based diet is suitable for athletes too.

    [8:08] Stephanie talks about under-fueling in relation to a plant-based diet.

    [21:32] Stephanie leaves her last pieces of advice.


    Key Takeaways

    • Runners, and other athletes, can successfully train while on a plant-based diet, but transitioning to a plant-based diet doesn’t necessarily have to be the goal.
    • Before transitioning into a plant-based diet, consider the foods that you should eat because you might not like their taste. Look for recipes that could help you enjoy plant-based foods more. Food allergies should also be considered if there are any.
    • A plant-based diet doesn’t necessarily come at the expense of eating things you don’t like or eliminating all other animal products.
    • Eating a plant-based diet requires a lot of nutrition knowledge and cooking skills.
    • Many people usually make a mistake, especially when starting, when they remove the animal foods without looking for plant-based alternatives that could give the same value.
    • There are some key nutrients, essential vitamins, and minerals that you should intentionally get them. These are calcium, iron, zinc, vitamin b12, and choline.
    • The problem with iron is that you can easily absorb them from animal sources. It would be best to consume more iron from plant-based sources to help your bodies absorb more iron. You may need supplements to help you with this issue.
    • If you’re an athlete planning to start their plant-based diet journey, it’s best to connect with dieticians to be guided.
    • Your personal values can help you become motivated when starting a plant-based diet.
    • The recommended diet for athletes should be the one that helps them perform the best that they can and also that keeps them healthy mentally and physically.


    Quotes

    • “The decision to go plant-based should really only be done out of personal preference.” - Stephanie [15:39]
    • “For the wrong person, anything can be turned into a diet.” - Stephanie [19:33]

    Want to start living in a way that’s better for the environment? Lost on how to start your plant-based eating journey? 


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I speak with Izolda Trakhtenberg, a proud vegan for 15 years and the host of The Vegan Life podcast. 


    Listen to this episode as we dive deep into why eating plant-based foods is more ethical than traditional foods.


    Episode Timeline

    [3:38] Izolda talks about her roots and why she started her vegan journey

    [5:40] Izolda revealed the massive effects of shifting to a vegan diet

    [8:51] Izolda shares her thoughts on why plant-based eating has become more popular, especially nowadays

    [10:56] Izolda chats about the element of convenience in restaurants and what you should do if there are no vegan options on the menu

    [14:56] Izolda shares if her attitudes and relationship towards food changed when she started her vegan journey.

    [18:51] Izolda debunks the most common myths revolving around veganism.

    [20:01] Izolda describes what she feels when surrounded by people who still consume meat and animal products.

    [25:15] Izolda shares her advice for those who’d like to start their vegan journey. 


    Key Takeaways

    • Agriculture, especially animal farming and food production, takes a lot of the resources like energy and gas.
    • The fewer spaces for farms intended for animal production, the more spaces we could have for trees and places where people could stay and live.
    • You’ve been fed food authorities recommended that might not be best for you.
    • You should take a step back and assess the food recommended by the authorities that you consume.
    • When you start eating vegan, you become more conscious and thoughtful of your food choices.
    • Many people have the stereotype that vegans are smug or arrogant. Vegans are perceived to be like this because they don’t want animals to suffer in the animal slaughter system.
    • When you want to start your vegan diet:
    • Go slow and start small.
    • Consult with your doctor if going vegan is right for you.
    • Be aware of how much you’re eating and the quality of your food.
    • Consider having a food diary on what you ate and what you felt after you ate them.


    Quotes

    • “We’ve been fed a steady diet of what we should eat that may or may not be the best for us.” - Izolda [9:37]
    • “We can be very mindful and very purposeful with our choices if you really keep in mind why you’re becoming vegan.” - Izolda [27:32]

    Have you ever felt that motivation alone is not enough to drive you from doing the things that you love in your life? Maybe you're just being too hard on yourself, and this perspective is affecting the way you live your life negatively.


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I share snippets from my upcoming book and explain why it's essential to change the narrative around motivation to become a better person.


    Listen to this podcast and change the way you think about the core of motivation and why comparing yourself with other people is detrimental to your well-being.


    Episode Timeline

    [1:22] Emily reveals the reason why she’s writing her book

    [1:56] Emily reads a snippet of her inspiration story.

    [2:32] Emily talks about the one narrative around motivation.

    [3:09] Emily expresses her thoughts about the most common narrative around motivation.

    [7:59] Emily encourages her listeners to broaden their perspectives towards success.

    [8:55] Emily reads a poem from her upcoming book.

    [9:12] Emily reminds herself about the dangers of comparing herself to other people.

    [12:17] Emily talks about her upcoming podcast episodes this March.


    Key Takeaways

    • When talking about motivation, there’s no need to sacrifice the things you love and matter to you to achieve your goals and aspirations.
    • One of the reasons why there’s a rise of motivational speakers who are former athletes is because they want to educate their audience regarding the mental toll caused by the sacrifices they made.
    • When you continue to follow the traditional view on motivation, there’s a great possibility that you’ll miss many things that you could learn about yourself in your journey.
    • You can have more reasons to be motivated aside from aspiring to succeed in your endeavors. You can utilize motivation to relax, slow down, and take a break.
    • You need motivation for all scenarios, not just one.
    • When you expand their view on what success could mean, you can be happier in life, and it could also help develop your view on what motivation is.
    • Don’t compare outcomes with other people because each person’s goals are different.


    Quotes

    • “Athletes can be successful without sacrificing their mental or physical health. Athletes can be successful in their sport and still thrive outside of it, too.” - Emily [2:45]
    • “There’s no reason to compare yourself.” - Emily [11:44]
    • “Go out and find what makes you different. Find what makes you motivated.” - Emily [11:46]

    • Creativity is the most crucial thing to have in any profession or career.
    • Creativity is all about giving value and being relevant.

    • Try to look for other ways to use everyday objects.
    • When you have time to spare, don’t use your GPS when you travel to a place.
    • Aspire not to be stagnant in your life.
    • The most essential things in today’s society are ideas.
    • In this day and age, technology drowns creativity.
    • Give yourself a chance to be lost in your life.
    • Optimism, motivation, and creativity are intertwined.
    • Creativity fosters motivation because you do things that you love and believe in.
    • Bring ideas to receptive people if you aim to make a difference.
    • Trust your gut. If it’s telling you something, pay attention to what it is.
    • Have some guidance that doesn’t come from experience and comes from unknowing.

    • There’s nothing wrong if you choose to be in your experimental phase.

    Tired of listening to various gurus and coaches online on what you should do to improve your well-being? Do you feel frustrated because no matter how hard you try following all their advice and tips, you keep on struggling because they don’t fit your personality or lifestyle? Perhaps, you should find your sense of self through empowered wellness.


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I speak with Allison Pelot, a dynamic fitness trainer, and energy coach specializing in rapid permanent change through corrective exercise, metabolic nutrition, and energetic alignment. Allison is also the author of Finally Thriving: Your Guide to Empowered Wellness.


    Listen to this episode to be aware of what works for your well-being, instead of constantly looking outside yourself for answers, and what you should do if you’re lost in the process.


    Episode Timeline

    [2:10] Allison shares what’s in her book Finally Thriving: Your Guide to Empowered Wellness.

    [4:46] Allison explains what empowered wellness is.

    [5:48] Allison talks about how you can start practicing empowered wellness.

    [10:48] Allison reveals her background.

    [20:39] Allison explains why humans are all designed to thrive.

    [24:15] Allison leaves her one last piece of advice.


    Key Takeaways

    • Empowered Wellness means you own your experience. Connecting with yourself can help you choose what works for you, especially when you’re being presented with opinions and ideas.
    • If you heavily really on someone else’s opinion for your self-care, at some point, you’ll feel lost and disconnected.
    • If you’re looking to practice empowered wellness, give yourself space. Take out the things you don’t need, like distractions of your life. 
    • Prioritize your life every day so you can put yourself first. 
    • Take all the noise to have that extra space to bring in new opportunities and changes.
    • Don’t put too many restrictions on yourself. Don’t overcomplicate yourself.
    • Connect with your inner child so that you can connect with the powerful parts of yourself.
    • You already have everything that we need. You need to remove all the blocks that prevent you from acquiring all of them.


    Quotes

    • “It’s okay not to do anything sometimes.” - Allison [8:34]
    • “Give yourself space for grace.” - Allison [10:39]
    • “The energetic intertwines with the energetic more than we realize.” - Allison [17:07]
    • “You definitely deserve to be happy. It is possible.” - Allison [23:06]
    • “Look within yourself to reflect the experience of yourself and the world.” - Allison [24:21]

    Sick of doing cardio? Come join the resistance training revolution! When asked about resistance training, many people, unfortunately, believe many misconceptions about it. Resistance training is not just about the resistance bands! It’s any form of exercise that improves your strength and endurance, like weight lifting or strength training.


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I speak with Sal Di Stefano, a personal fitness trainer and co-host of Mind Pump, a podcast that is dedicated to providing truthful fitness and health information. He’s also the author of Resistance Training Revolution: The No-Cardio Way to Burn Fat and Age-Proof Your Body—in Only 60 Minutes a Week.


    Listen to this episode as we break down what resistance training is, all the science behind it, and how to start incorporating it in your life, especially if it’s not something you usually do.


    Episode Timeline

    [2:47] Sal explains why he chose to focus his book on resistance training rather than general fitness.

    [5:48] Sal describes how he pictures the resistance training revolution in exercise.

    [9:10] Sal reveals what women’s only gyms are and what they imply.

    [13:47] Sal discusses why he focuses on muscle and metabolism instead of calories when talking about resistance training.

    [19:10] Sal shares how the perception of resistance training has changed because of science-backed research backing it.

    [26:19] Sal discusses how you can incorporate resistance training in your life.

    [38:28] Sal leaves his last advice to the audience.


    Key Takeaways

    • According to Sal, resistance training is the most effective form of exercise.
    • One of the biggest misconceptions about resistance training is that it’ll just make you bigger, but it’s also an excellent exercise for longevity, fat loss, and heart health.
    • If you take the time to diet and do cardiovascular exercises, you’ll see weight loss and muscle loss. This could lead to a slower metabolism.
    • Many people have experienced muscle gain instead of muscle loss and a faster metabolism with resistance training.
    • When you do resistance training, you’re telling your body to burn more calories on its own.
    • Resistance training helps in balancing the hormones for both men and women.
    • Resistance training could be beneficial for your bones.
    • Resistance training is individualizable, customizable, and you don’t need to do it frequently.
    • When you do resistance training, focus on these exercises: squatting, pressing, rowing, overhead pressing, and lunging.
    • Treat your workouts as skills practice. Practice with the proper form so you’ll get better results and a lower risk of injuries.
    • If you’re sore for two to three days after your workout, you’re probably doing it wrong.
    • Do three to five exercises that target most of your body.
    • When you do resistance training, you signal your body to build muscle.
    • Shame is a terrible long-form motivator for exercise.


    Quotes

    • “You should finish your workout and feel more energized than you felt when you entered.” - Sal [33:48]
    • “Think of exercise, all forms of exercise, as self-care.” - Sal [38:23]

    Do you ever feel like you never have the time for things that matter to you? Like you don’t have time for things you enjoy and are just crossing off one to-do list after another. Perhaps, your power and control over the things that matter to you have started to fade away.


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I reveal my routine on how I deal with my weekly tasks and share how I almost lost control and power over my life and the things that I value the most. I also left some tips on taking over and controlling your life and having a meaningful fitness journey.


    Listen to this podcast to learn more about how to gain the power you need to create the ripples of change in your life.

    Ever struggle with making fitness a priority in your life? It always makes it on your “to-do” list but doesn’t get crossed off nearly enough? Chad can help!


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I spoke to Chad Austin, the owner of Priority Fitness in Overland Park, Kansas. Chad is also the best-selling author of the popular book series Make Fitness a Priority: A Six-Week Course to Get Out of Your Own Way. He’s also been a fitness trainer for more than 20 years.


    Listen to this episode on creating the ideal schedule and ideal routine and feeling effortless with your fitness as you make it a priority in your life.


    Episode Timeline

    [1:56] Chad explains why he’s usually called to discuss making fitness a priority and why he chose the said topic to be the focus of his book.

    [3:27] Chad shares his approach on how he’s handling new year’s resolutions.

    [6:31] Chad reveals why people struggle to prioritize fitness in their lives.

    [11:32] Chad tells you what you should do to make fitness a priority in your life.

    [15:51] Chad discloses the most significant reason people fail to prioritize fitness in their lives.

    [19:56] Chad leaves his last advice to the listeners.


    Key Takeaways

    • Instant gratification is an integral part of why people see a personal trainer, but this could have temporaryto temporary results. This is also why many people can’t be consistent with their fitness goals and why you keep on restarting repeatedly.
    • Many personal trainers hate New Year’s resolutions because of New Year's negative reputation.
    • Focus on keeping back on track instead of restarting your journey when you struggle, and it helps you get a better mindset on fitness.
    • Even when you’re an athlete, it’s crucial to relearn some lessons on framing your mindset on failing.
    • People should realize how fitness looks different as you go through time.
    • When you say that you’re too busy, it means that you’re too busy to work out like you’re used to.
    • You need to realize that doing fewer workouts than you’re used to doesn’t mean that you’re doing something wrong. It just means that it fits differently in your life now than it did before.
    • Fitness makes you better across the board. If you don’t try to fit it better in your life, it’ll hurt the other aspects of your life.
    • Getting started on your fitness journey is the first step in making it a priority in your life.
    • It’s important to ask yourself how you can fit fitness in your life and how much accountability you need right now as you go through your fitness journey.
    • Check your schedule and see how you can fit fitness in it. Start where you are and scale-up.
    • Get a trainer that will help you be motivated with your fitness journey if you have the means.
    • If you go to the gym out of desperation, it’s time to change your motivation.
    • Change the routine that leads you to failure and find one that works with you.


    Quotes

    • “The fitness journey doesn’t end when you fail. Failing is part of it.” - Chad [5:20]
    • “The biggest excuse that’s easy for us to make all the time is ‘I’m too busy.’ I realized over time that it has a different meaning for us.” - Chad [6:51]

    The first month of 2022 is almost up, and many people have committed to participate in Dry January, where they commit to starting being sober. As many people have experienced, going through their sobriety journey can be rough and challenging. Many people choose to return to their old ways and disregard their progress. 


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I spoke to Gill Tietz, MS, the host of Sober Powered Podcast. Gill has a master’s degree in Biology and has dedicated herself to learning about alcohol’s influence on the brain and its cause of addiction. She uses her platform to educate and empower others to assess their relationship with alcohol. Right now, she also works as a biochemist in the Boston area.


    Listen to learn more about Gill’s different approaches to encourage you to try a 30-day sober challenge and start your sobriety journey. 


    Episode Timeline

    [3:33] Gill shares her opinion on different sobriety challenges and if they are helpful.

    [8:13] Gill brings up how long it takes to see the effects of not drinking.

    [10:41] Gill tells the effects of sobriety challenges after it’s done.

    [18:16] Gill recounts how she started her sobriety journey.

    [23:08] Gill reveals the mission of Sober Powered.

    [25:07] Gill leaves her one last piece of advice to the listeners.


    Key Takeaways

    • Sobriety challenges are an excellent opportunity for those super curious to take a break from alcohol.
    • These challenges eliminate a huge barrier, especially for those hesitant participants.
    • Millions of people are now participating in Dry January, which started in the UK in 2013.
    • If you’re getting more than enough support when you participate in these sobriety challenges, there’s a higher chance that you’ll finish them successfully.
    • Aside from attending AA meetings, you can also get support virtually from joining The Luckiest Club virtual meetings or NamaStay Sober’s yoga sessions.
    • The effects of sobriety can be seen immediately or longer, depending on your relationship with alcohol. It can be seen starting from two weeks to four weeks of sobriety for some people.
    • The learnings you acquire after each sobriety challenge are valuable even though you chose not to continue being sober for quite a while.
    • If you plan to stay sober, drinking mocktails and non-alcoholic beer could help if you’re looking for ways to socialize with people during events.
    • Realizing that nobody really cares if you’re drinking or not could encourage you to proceed with your sobriety journey. They might ask because it seems odd at first, but it’s not essential to them, so there’s nothing to be worried about.
    • You can miss alcohol and accept reality at the same time.


    Quotes

    • “One of the scariest things about taking a break [from alcohol] is people are gonna ask why you’re not drinking.” - Gill [3:46]
    • “Part of the challenge is learning how to navigate real-life without drinking, so it’s not just you hide out in your room, and you don’t drink for 30 days, and then you resume life. You’re doing life this whole time.” - Gill [10:51]
    • “Addiction is giving up everything for one thing, and recovery is giving up one thing for everything.” - Gill [21:34]
    • “Now that I’m sober, I have a whole life.” - Gill [21:54]
    • “Addiction isn’t searching through society to find the losers among us. It can get anybody. It doesn’t matter how many degrees you have, how much money you have, what your race is, where you live, anything. It can get anybody at any time.” - Gill [24:32]

    As a former athlete, you may have a hard time finding a healthy relationship between your body and exercise. Many former athletes find that creating habits and routines after a long rest from working out feels like starting from scratch. With this, I believe that changing your mindset could be beneficial, especially when you're at the lowest point of your sports career or just in the transition of prioritizing other opportunities in your life.


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I read the first chapter of my book Elite to Everyday Athlete: 9 Steps to Getting Off the Sidelines of Life titled The Never-Ending Off-Season. This chapter could help you find the workout routine that is perfect for you now that you're inactive in the sports arena and fit a healthy lifestyle with the other aspects of your life. 


    Listen to learn more about how you can make working out sustainable when you’re no longer an athlete.

    Key Takeaways

    • Athletic retirement is an off-season without a return date.
    • Rest is vital for elite athletes.
    • Research shows no significant difference in exercise patterns between former athletes and non-athletes. Both are equally likely to become couch potatoes.
    • Priorities change, and former athletes focus on finding a job, starting a family, or pursuing new opportunities.
    • Former athletes should not ignore the value of exercise in their day-to-day life.
    • Don’t force yourself to a routine just because you think it’s what it needs to happen.
    • Balance prevents burnout.
    • Exercise and rest are needed for different reasons. Exercise is known to improve your health, self-esteem, and support healthy sleep in addition to many other benefits. Rest aids in muscle recovery, reduces the risk of injury, and prevents fatigue. Both are equally important and will complement each other in giving you enough energy and strength to show up confidently in your daily activities.


    Quotes

    • “When the things that motivate an athlete to train, medals, records, adrenaline, and competition aren’t there in the real world. When an athlete trains at the top standard they have set for themselves, anything less feels just like that, less.” - Emily [5:37]
    • “An athlete needs rest, but they also need a healthy relationship with exercise. This will help prevent them from burnout, or on the other side of the spectrum, inactivity.” - Emily [7:15]
    • “Just because they are a star athlete and disciplined to wake up at 6 AM on Saturdays for four years doesn’t mean this will translate into life afterward.” - Emily [8:11]

    Key takeaways

    • When we deprive our bodies of food as part of our diet regimen, it is more detrimental in the long run.
    • Balance your blood sugar and give your body what it needs.
    • Instead of thinking about your body as your enemy, think of it as your best friend that protects you from possible problems.
    • Before deciding your next diet regimen, ask yourself these questions:
    • Is what you’re doing based on science?
    • Would you let your kids do it?
    • Can you do it for the rest of your life?
    • Don’t approach dieting like your getting into different first dates.
    • It will be a gamechanger if you understand what motivates you to kickstart your goals.
    • There are three things that we should be thinking about all the time:
    • What our body needs
    • How our mindsets dictate our actions
    • How we can be sustainable with our actions
    • Confidence should be a part of your mindset.
    • When you have a plan, you can operate with confidence in everything that you do.
    • Getting strong could help you achieve your fitness goals.
    • Don’t rely solely on motivation. Learn to build your habits.


    Quotes

    • We keep doing the same things over and over again. Every single diet is essentially the same thing. It’s actually deprivation. - Carrie [6:50] 
    • What I realized was if I just taught people how to eat wasn’t enough. - Carrie [13:22]
    • If you want something different, you have to do something different. - Carrie [16:43]
    • The reality is that if we don’t understand what we really need to be doing, we can think we’re going to do it, but we won’t. - Carrie [21:44]
    • Building confidence allows you to walk into a room and be able to be you as opposed to a wallflower that feels like they’re not worthy. - Carrie [27:19]
    • You can’t control your circumstances, but you can control your response. - Carrie [31:23]

    Do you know how to begin your fitness journey this 2022? Every new year, countless people have vowed that they'll be more active in incorporating movement in their day-to-day activities.

She graduated from the University of Washington, where she’s a track and field team member. Later, she got her master’s in exercise science, sports performance, and injury prevention.

    • Keep saying to yourself that you’re more than your body, but that does not mean that you should not take care of it.
    • If you move to achieve a specific look, you’re most likely going to set yourself up for failure.
    • You have to know something so well to be able to break it down so simply.
    • Movement is so fun, and it should be so creative.
    • Start taking care of yourself this new year.


    Quotes 

    • “When it comes to the human body, it’s so advanced like it’s literally a miracle that we’re never gonna fully understand, so we can always spend time arguing and breaking down and learning more and I love that side of things.” - Kaisa [5:27]
    • “Health is a feeling. It is not a look. Being healthy does not look a specific way. It’s very different for every single human being.” - Kaisa [11:01]
    • “It would be foolish to say that we’re not human beings who care about what we look like. You have to be able to take that and put more power over other things.” - Kaisa [19:14]

    #1 Reason Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail Episode: https://www.weekonereset.com/goals


    Episode Timeline

    [3:08] Emily shares the first step, which is to dream big but focus on smaller tasks, that you should do to make sure that the changes that you’re making are going to stick.

    [5:00] Emily examines the importance of tracking your progress in achieving your goals.

    [7:33] Emily explains the role of preparation in making your resolutions a reality.


    Key Takeaways

    • Start breaking down your goals into smaller tasks.
    • If you’re serious about achieving your goals, tracking your progress would differentiate you from those just interested in these goals.
    • When you track your progress, it’s easier to take your emotions out on your goals and assess if you’re choosing the right goal.
    • Tracking your progress means you're checking what you’re doing day-to-day and comparing them to your results.
    • The more prepared you are, the more you’re going to enjoy fulfilling your goals.
    • Ask yourself every day what you should prepare for your goals.


    Quotes

    • So don’t get lost dreaming so big and having your goal set so high that you forget to actually do that smaller work, that smaller steps that will be pushing you forward. - Emily [4:50]
    • I think that preparation and being prepared is the number one thing that helps people prevent burnout. - Emily [7:39]

    What if I told you many people don’t go after their resolutions because they haven’t built the confidence to? Making the goal is one thing but then it takes a lot of grit and strength to keeping working towards it. 


    Aside from listing down and narrowing down the resolutions you desire to attain, it's also crucial to have the momentum to transform these into your new realities. Many former and current athletes fail to make their aspirations come to fruition, but that should not be the case this year for you, personal bestie.


    In the third day of Week One Reset, I share some tips on how you can be more confident around your goals and how you can achieve your best self as you reach these dreams.


    #1 Reason Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail Episode: https://www.weekonereset.com/goals 


    Episode Timeline

    [2:30] Emily shares her sources of confidence in achieving her goals

    [3:10] Emily explains the importance of rewiring your perception of your past

    [4:26] Emily discusses the disconnect between the stories about your past that you tell yourself and the realities of what actually happened and how it could affect your mindset towards your goals

    [7:05] Emily talks about the importance of forgiving oneself and its role in ensuring that future goals are met

    [7:46] Emily reads a passage from Creating Money: Keys to Abundance by Duane Packer and Sanaya Roman

    [10:09] Emily shares the activity for Day Three of Week 1 Reset.


    Key Takeaways

    • When you become confident with yourself and your decisions, you're rewiring your mind on how it should handle the past.
    • You can create any story surrounding yourself.
    • Rewiring your mindset is critical to get the confidence boost you need for your goals.
    • Allow yourself to forgive yourself that didn’t make the right decision in the past.
    • Keep a list of times in the past that you have succeeded in achieving your goals, and you felt abundance in the things you did.
    • When you’re feeling down, you can take a step back, review your list, and get a sense of fulfillment that you have achieved in your past, and you can still achieve more in the future.


    Quotes

    • It’s not about looking at the past and being positive about it. But it’s looking in the past and pulling out very specific examples of when you saw this success, of when you were actually moving towards these goals that you wanted, or you already had what you wanted. - Emily [5:46]
    • This new year is not about a brand new you. This new year is pulling out the best of you. - Emily [6:49]

    Now that you have determined the goals you want to achieve, it's time to narrow down and select which one to work on this year!


    For day two of the Week One Reset, I share some tips on how you can decide what goal to work towards and how the year should look like. I also share some inspiration from the book Dedicated: The Case for Commitment in an Age of Infinite Browsing by Pete Davis.


    #1 Reason Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail Episode: https://www.weekonereset.com/goals 



    Episode Timeline

    [2:10] Emily shares the importance of focusing on one goal this 2022.

    [4:25] Emily explains how our fear of missing out could affect how we commit to things.

    [5:46] Emily shares how instant gratification contributes to why we have commitment issues.

    [7:47] Emily shares the importance of powering through your resolutions.

    [11:50] Emily discusses the activity for the second day of Week 1 Reset. (Procrastinate on Purpose)


    Key Takeaways

    • To set the perfect goal this year, dedicate yourself to one of your goals. Don’t spread yourself thin and attempt to accomplish multiple goals at once. Narrow your focus on one goal you deeply desire and one specific thing you’re going all-in on this year.
    • If you’re working on a goal, see if you can incorporate it into your day-to-day life so that you don’t have to convince and pressure yourself from doing it.
    • Speed and shallowness are often linked in terms of goal-setting.
    • We don’t want to be using 100% of our effort all the time to achieve our goals. Usually, the more effort it requires for longer, that’s when people start falling off. 
    • Don’t think you're making a right or wrong decision by choosing one of your goals today and putting the others on the back burner. This is just a decision that you’re committing to now, and you’re future will adjust accordingly. You can make any choice into the perfect one.


    Quotes

    • We're missing out on a lot of the things that we crave because we keep on jumping from thing to thing.” - Emily [4:25]
    • Reaching a goal isn’t what gives us meaning. Holding ourselves accountable is what gives us meaning. It’s not just the actual accomplishment of the goals. It’s all about working up that goes there.” - Emily [7:32]

    Welcome to the first Monday of the first week of a new year!


    I like looking at the New Year as a way to reset. Even if I’m working towards the same goals, a new year gives me a fresh start and a burst of energy to make sure I’m on the right track. I like to spend the first week of the year taking the time to evaluate my goals, come up with a plan, and prepping my mind with the right attitude and focus going into the next season.


    With that, I wanted to invite you on this journey with me! This week I will be releasing 5 podcast episodes called the Week One Reset. Through this week I will be walking you through how to go from ideas of goals to actual implementation, full of motivational tips and actionable activities for you to do each day.


    It's common for people to write down their resolutions when the new year approaches. Although some people have seen success in this endeavor, unfortunately, that's not the case for the majority of those who attempted to change something in some of the aspects of their life. 


    In this first episode of Week 1 Reset, I discuss the most crucial factor contributing to the new year's resolutions. I also shared some action steps that you should be working towards this 2022.

    • To achieve your new year's resolution, you should plan and surround yourself with uplifting communities.
    • Contrary to popular belief, new year's resolutions work for many people.

    Quotes

    • It’s true that you don’t need a new year’s resolution, but if you have this itch in the back of your mind like I’ve been wanting to make this change, I’ve been wanting to do this thing. I’ve been wanting to accomplish something that I just didn’t know when to start, and this is that nudge. This is a great starting point. So since you’re already here, why not make it?” - Emily [3:43]
    • “This is the year to set a resolution. This is the year for personal development.” - Emily [6:15]

    Are you having trouble reflecting on your year when there’s not something within your reach? How about when you feel like you weren't able to achieve your targets and goals this year?


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I shared my goals and achievements this year and how I am hopeful for a great 2022. I also shared some things that I'm looking forward to in the year and what you should expect from me in the coming year.


    Episode Timeline

    [2:05] Emily shared her desired goals for 2020 and how she was able to meet them in 2021

    [5:08] Emily discussed her fitness goals next year

    [6:08] Emily shared his thoughts on the lowest of lows and just existing

    [8:04] Emily shared her commitments for 2022


    Key Takeaways

    • Don’t compare what you did last year and what you achieved this year.
    • Create a manifestation list so that you can go outside of your everyday thoughts of what you want.
    • If you have big goals, ensure that you can continue to feel some progress.
    • Take into consideration having smaller goals while trying to achieve bigger goals.


    Quotes

    • “What’s really going on, yes, not the sexy thing to do, it’s not the most exciting, but I’m still leveling up.” - Emily [4:48]
    • “We don’t always have to go from one extreme to the other, and it is fine to just exist in that in-between. Maybe you’ve had a great, but it’s just an average year. You don’t have to wait until you’re at your lowest until you’re going to make your big change.” - Emily [7:08]

    We made it to the end of 2021, how wonderful is that?

    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I would like to bring you a compilation of the best advice pieces we received that year. This is not about taking one thing from this episode, but rather hearing encouraging words from others to help you arm yourself with motivation for the new year. What was your best moment of 2021 in the show? Did you have a specific episode or section of an episode that truly motivated you to make the necessary change in your life?


    Key Takeaways:

    · Say yes to yourself and work out the how. Life is about doing whatever success means to you if it gives you meaning, fulfillment, and happiness. 

    · Be gentle and take time to do restorative stuff without being too hard on your body, and it will appreciate it more when you hit your 60s and 70s.

    · Obstacles are just an illusion. There’s absolutely nothing that you can’t put your mind to or accomplish with the right mindset, work ethic, and determination, no matter what obstacles are in your way.

    · Get clear on where you’re currently at. If you don’t know what you want or where you’re going, think of the opposite of what you don’t want to create self-awareness. This will help you have an understanding of what’s not serving you and what to do to get closer to where you want to get. 

    · Choose to try, invest in yourself, and take action towards the vision that you’ve been looking for. 

    · Guard yourself against following certain people that trigger the things that are very uncomfortable for you and instead surround yourself with people that understand you.

    · Stay with the desire of losing weight if that’s your goal. Focus on enjoying the journey even as you focus on the final destination to learn and grow in a way that makes your weight loss goals delicious. 

    · Assess your relationship with alcohol if you’re thinking about ditching it entirely or you’re just sober curious. Understand that your why might change over time but trust the process because it’s not a one size fits all thing. 

    · Track your normal day and see what your calories are and what your food habits are like to get started whether your goal is to lose 5lbs or 50lbs. 

    · Always remember to pour into yourself and reflect on your day/week, and ask yourself what you can celebrate to continue building a healthy mindset. 

    · Embrace where you’re at in your journey and think of how you can take small steps towards getting where you want. 

    · Get started and find someone to help you reverse engineer your goals to accomplish whatever it is you want to accomplish. 

    · Believe that you deserve to be healthy and start by being authentic and loving yourself. Allow health to come to you naturally and with ease. 

    · Don’t settle for the applause of people and instead focus on the fullness of your potential as an athlete or high achiever. 

    Quotes: 

    “If you continue to be a student of life and just learn and be part of an environment that’s supportive, it’s going to lift you higher.” [2:54]

    “You have every right to build the vision that you want; you have every right to be the strongest person that you can possibly be, but it’s up to you.” [6:27]

    “When things are the most chaotic, that’s really when they work out the best because it all fizzles to where it’s supposed to be.” [13:29]

    “You can’t heal a body that you hate; if you hate yourself, you’re never going to get healthy.” [17:59]

    As the holiday season comes to a close and the new year greets hello, many health enthusiasts, aspiring athletes, and even gym neophytes focus on starting new habits and revisiting old ones that could help them reach their fitness goals. Gyms and coaches alike have seen the trend of many people starting the year right and having problems being consistent in meeting their goals. Worse, even though they have seen consistency in their efforts, they are having a hard time losing those unnecessary fats. Perhaps, it is time to change your mindset on the gym.


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I spoke to Natalie, a former CrossFit competitor, for many years. After ending her CrossFit competition career, she decided to change her mindset around the gym. She also works with different types of people having trouble losing and maintaining their weight. She discussed how different factors like the lack of the right mindset in going to the gym is detrimental in reaching your different fitness goals and what you should do to ensure that you'll have the right mindset as you take the time to achieve your desired results.


    Key Takeaways:

    • Contrary to popular belief, harder is not always better for physical activities. To get ahead, take the time to rest, especially when you're doing intense physical activities.
    • Listen to your body, especially when it's showing signs that you need to slow down.
    • If you don't see results from your food or workout, it's a stress issue.
    • Don't treat your body like a machine. If you do, it might cause your disconnect with it.
    • When you don't know how to proceed with your journey, create a vision of what life you want to have and start aligning your actions, routines, and habits to realize that vision.
    • Take a step back and assess your relationship with the gym and food to learn more about how you can move forward.
    • If you want to be fit or lean, there are two skills that you should learn: loving movement and looking for activities that are low stress.
    • When you focus yourself on what you love about moving, you're going to show up better, and you're going to be motivated to move your body.
    • Learn to train your mind on what you love about working out, and the body will come with it after.
    • Ask yourself where you want to go, what behaviors are not benefiting me and others, and what skills I need to develop from taking where I want to go.


    Episode Timeline:

    [2:32] Natalie shared her CrossFit competition journey

    [4:28] Natalie discussed her health scare, and it opened her mind to changing her mindset

    [8:44] Natalie explained the connection between fat loss and stress and how the latter can be detrimental in achieving your target weight

    [11:46] Natalie discussed how athletes can read their bodies and how it could help build the right mindset.

    [14:28] Natalie shared some advice that she gives to her clients that are experiencing stress and not seeing results 

    [19:51] Natalie's discussed her transition from competition to finding movement

    [24:15] Natalie's final thoughts


    Quotes:

    I was super confused like what the hell. Like how can you gain weight working out as hard as I can? I'm not an athlete. How can this happen to me? It turns out that stress can make you fat, and I didn't realize that. Nobody really talked about that. - Natalie [6:09] 


    That emotional stress is typically the thing like you can be doing all the things right, eating well, drinking water, getting your sleep, doing your workouts, getting your walks in. If you're always thinking about what's next, what I have to do, why am I not doing enough or you're questioning whether you're eating enough or eating too little or you know you're worried about like if this food's gonna make you fat. That's all stress. - Natalie [17:17]

    Are you one of those people who like to push themselves so hard towards reaching a goal until you’re miserable? The truth is, you won’t achieve your goals to the fullest if you don’t practice self-discipline and self-compassion through rest and recovery. Always remember that there’s no excellence without self-compassion. The hustle culture isn’t serving both your physical and mental health, and it’s only by finding balance will you be able to achieve greatness. 

    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I speak with Jiggy, a youth motivational speaker teaching college students how to excel in their craft and prioritize their mental health so they can optimize their performance and continue to build their legacy. Listen in to learn about the questions you need to ask yourself to understand the root cause of your need for approval and raise your level of self-awareness. 

    Key Takeaways:

    ·       The importance of rest and recovery in enhancing performance.  

    ·       How to be serious about your rest, mental health, and self-care to avoid burnout.

    ·       Stop looking for reasons and excuses to drive yourself to burnout and instead focus on sustainability and longevity to attain greatness. 

    ·       How to create self-awareness around what brings you rest and effective rest. 

    ·       Start with your non-negotiables first when time-blocking to avoid deteriorating your health.

    ·       How to constantly check in with yourself and encourage yourself to continue showing up and progressing.

    ·       Start digging into the why and the root cause of things to understand yourself better so you raise your level of self-awareness.

    ·       How to develop self-discipline by keeping promises (goals) that you make to yourself.

    Episode Timeline:

    ·       [2:44] How Jiggy found her passion in motivational speaking and working with college students. 

    ·       [4:37] How a childhood void of compassion and early life experiences contributed to who Jiggy is today.

    ·       [8:09] Understanding that you’re deserving of rest, recovery, and self-care. 

    ·       [12:33] How Jiggy strategizes to create self-awareness around rest and effective rest. 

    ·       [16:18] All the things she’s done and those she’s still doing, plus how she keeps herself in check. 

    ·       [21:04] The power of understanding your limits and the fine line between self-discipline and self-sabotage. 

    Quotes:

    ·       “Society is obsessed with trying to prove that we’re hard workers that way we’re deserving of all the rewards and medals that come with life.”- Jiggy [9:38]

    ·       “Once the intention of doing something surpasses your heart’s desires and all of a sudden it’s overflowing into burnout and self-sabotage, that’s where you really want to check in as to why that is.”- Jiggy [24:04]

    We are so used to physical fitness studios, but what about a mental fitness studio? Have you ever heard of one or maybe attended one? A mental fitness studio is one that specifically focuses on helping people connect their mind and body through mindfulness techniques.

    ·       How practicing mindfulness can help you be calmer and stronger in yourself. 

    ·       The importance of positive self-talk and celebrating micro-steps that you make every day. 

    ·       Learn to stop comparing your now with your past or future to find happiness and fulfillment.

    ·       How to find the mindfulness practice that works for you without feeling the pressure of doing it a certain way.

    It’s that time of the year again when the cold starts kicking in, making us lose a lot of the motivation that we’ve been building all year. The truth is that you don’t want to just survive waiting for the next season to come by, you need to form habits that will keep you living and thriving. How then do you improve the seasonal depression that comes with winter?

    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I share some motivational hacks to help you overcome the seasonal depression that comes with winter. Listen in to learn how developing habits that nourish your physical being will also improve your mental and emotional states. 

    Key Takeaways:

    ·       Whatever activity you’re trying to do right now, you can just add in the element of the outdoor to get your sunshine. 

    ·       Think of choosing and eating seasonal foods that are still going to nourish you during winter if you don’t feel like eating healthy. 

    ·       Make commitments and to-do lists that you can follow through and avoid overcommitting. 

    Episode Timeline:

    ·       [2:42] Don’t be fooled that you can’t get in the sunshine just because there’s no sunshine right now.

    Is your inner child still hurting about fitness due to the way you were introduced to it? We often don’t realize it, but how fitness was introduced to you as a child has a lot to do with your relationship with it today. To embrace a healthy relationship with fitness and identify what works best for you, you must first recognize that trauma and heal from it. 


    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I speak with Malarie, an exercise physiologist who’s worked in the fitness industry for a decade now. Listen in to learn the importance of moving your body moderately to keep it functioning and at your best health.  


    Key Takeaways:

    • How to approach fitness without weight loss as the primary reason.
    • Exercise psychology – how exercise was introduced to you as a child shapes how you view it as an adult. 
    • Understanding that exercise can be unique to you – what do you like doing and how often you can do it?
    • The importance of moderate body movements to maintain your body’s function, decrease pain and stiffness, and managing your mental health. 


    Episode Timeline:

    • [2:34] Malarie shares her history with weight gain/loss and when she changed her perspective about fitness.
    • [7:07] She explains childhood exercise trauma and how it can shape your adult fitness.
    • [11:52] How to recognize what exercise you like and how often you can do it to achieve your fitness goals. 
    • [16:00] The types of people and levels of fitness that Malarie works with.


    Quotes:

    ·“Maybe people have a history of some type of trauma around exercise, how you were introduced to it can then go on to shape how you feel as an adult.”- Malarie [8:37]

    ·“Finding that connection between what you actually like doing versus what you feel you should be doing can be a good reframe in your head, and also recognizing how often you can actually do it.”- Malarie [12:42]

    Are you making the right choices knowing that they have a long-lasting impact on your life? Sometimes when we are making choices for today, we don’t necessarily think of the impact they will have on us for the rest of our lives.

    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I share the story of my visit to the dentist and the lesson it has taught me on choices. Listen in to learn how you can start by making small consistent decisions by considering the impact they’ll have in your life.  


    Key Takeaways:

    ·       How your current choices can permanently affect the rest of your life.

    ·       Don’t allow yourself to get to a point of regret over making the wrong choices for your life. 

    ·       Learn to make the right decisions by thinking about the long-term impact they’ll make in your life. 


    Episode Timeline:

    ·       [1:43] The story of my visit to the dentist and the lessons it has taught me.

    ·      How to use your purpose after sport to impact other people’s lives.

    Did you know that diseases are better off treated from the root cause? And that many diseases are reversible, and you have the responsibility to take care of your mental and physical health.

    Have you been with me for a year, or are just now joining the community? From Girls Gone Healthy to Live Your Personal Best podcast! This podcast is a quarantine baby and we survived it and fell in love with the journey. What lessons did you learn? How have the said lessons changed your life? Well, I did learn a lot of lessons.   

    That is why, in this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I take a look at the journey one year has been and what I have learned about being healthy. Listen in to learn what these lessons are, why we’re no longer Girls Gone Healthy, and what to expect going forth.

    • Keeping fitness at the back of your mind and be fine with it when you can’t prioritize it.

    • How to master balance in your life and fitness by zooming out on the season you’re in.
    • Why how you identify and view yourself really does matter.
    • Look back far out to what you enjoyed and try out or add it to your routine.

    “How you view yourself and how you identify yourself really matters; it doesn’t matter if you’re at the beginning of your journey, you’re an athlete.”- Emily [13:39]

    Are you looking for a beginner-friendly workout that targets all your muscles? If that’s a yes, then you should try Pilates. You’ve probably heard of Pilates but don’t focus your attention on them or are just intimidated by the huge Pilate machines you see on social media. The truth is, Pilates is designed to accommodate even complete beginners since they are the only exercise that works even the littlest of your muscles.  

     

    In this episode of the Live Your Personal Best podcast, I speak with Lesley Logan, a Pilates instructor, and expert. Listen in to learn how you can practice Pilates as your workout routine and save time while living a healthier and better life.

     

    Key Takeaways:

    • How Pilates engages the deepest and little muscles that you don’t normally engage.
    • The time advantage of Pilates which helps work all muscles in a span of 30 minutes.
    • How Pilates helps you reset your thoughts and form a better mindset.
    • How they help you become patient and be content with whatever you’re doing.
    • The importance of having a one-on-one consultation before doing a reformer Pilates class.
    • The benefits of cross-training with Pilates as an athlete.

    Episode Timeline:

    • [2:01] How Lesley found and fell in love with Pilates as her go-to workout.
    • [4:14] Why Pilates is for everybody, especially beginners.
    • [7:13] The different types of Pilates and styles.
    • [8:48] The type of Pilate classes that Lesley teaches virtually.
    • [13:45] The lesson of patience that practicing Pilates will teach you.
    • [17:20] Why you shouldn’t do a reformer Pilates class without a one-on-one consultation first.

    Quotes:

    • “It’s for everyone; if you have a body, you can do Pilates.”- Lesley [4:20]
    • “Just because you did the movement doesn’t mean you got it yet.”- Lesley [14:50]

    Do you often feel held back because you don’t have enough resources? Always comparing yourself with others who you perceive to have more time or money than you? But did you know you can incorporate other things in your life that don’t take talent?

     

    Some things that we often overlook like your attitude, time management, preparedness, and making the effort don’t necessarily take talent and are free. They are the things that separate you from seeing results or accomplishing your tasks. Self-improvement will only happen when you learn to show up to these things to make a difference. When you mentally commit to being better at whatever drives you towards your desired results.

     

    Quotes:

    “You don’t have to be talented to reach so many of the things that you want; it just takes that mental commitment to get there.”- Emily [6:25]

    So we've heard of intuitive eating. And we've heard about disordered eating. But what about disordered exercising? Can we intuitively rest and exercise? Listen to this week's episode to learn how to value rest! (just as much as working out)

     

    In today's show, we are joined by Nyla, a certified health and life coach trained in habit and mindset change, and also holds a diploma in food nutrition.  Nyla discovered she had a disordered relationship with exercising, which drove her to the point that she was so rigid and would leave family functions and go work out. She did it due to her fear of gaining weight and equating her worth as a human being to how long and hardcore she worked out until she discovered that intuitive rest is productive as it brings about freedom and flexibility. Let's listen in and draw knowledge on what triggered Nyla's change in mindset that led to the adoption of intuitive rest as a way of life.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Disordered exercise destroys one's mindset around exercising, especially if you switch the schedule up.
    • Resting brings about freedom and flexibility.
    • Rest is beautiful, strong, powerful, and helps us function better.
    • Understanding that rest has no rules around it and has no pre-defined way of how it should look.
    • The importance of mindset change towards achieving intuitive rest.

    Episode Timeline:

    • [1:54] Nyla's backstory: Her journey through disordered exercise and its effects on her.
    • [4:03] Nyla's Motivation behind her addiction to hardcore workout.
    • [15:46] Nyla's mindset change on rest: Demystifying resting as being lazy and its importance.
    • [23:53] Nyla's advice on mindset reframing: Identifying rest as necessary as working out.

    Quotes:

    • "Rest is productive."- Nyla [5:31]
    • "We function better when we allow ourselves to rest."- Nyla [8:53]
    • "Rest doesn't have to look a certain way for it to count."- Nyla [12:16]
    • "You don't fail if you don't follow a program perfectly."- Nyla [18:32]
    • "Your current situation doesn't have to be your final destination."- Nyla [24:08]

    Are you working on achieving goals and not seeing daily results? The cause is deeply rooted within you in the form of self-doubt, which sabotages any form of progress, thus causing frustrations in the end. Your thoughts are the backbone of achievements whereas self-sabotage, is always actively trying to get in your way so that you don't act on situations you're supposed to. Avoid being a victim to self doubt! 

     

    In this episode, we identify self-sabotage as any behaviour that creates problems in our daily lives and interferes with achieving our long-term goals. It exists actively, whenever we are ready to do something, then end up taking so much time before acting on the plan, and exists passively when we add more things to our day to avoid doing activities directed towards our goals. Let's listen in and learn what causes self-sabotage and how to keep track of our goals to achieve them consistently.

    Summer is coming! Which means parties, lazy days at the beaches, and less time at the gym. Does that mean that enjoying yourself means you’ve fallen off the wagon? Absolutely not! You can enjoy yourself while doing other activities to continue your fitness goals even if you don’t get to be at the gym. 

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I talk about resetting fitness expectations during the holidays without falling off the wagon. Listen in to learn how to challenge yourself with new activities that work for you outside of your normal routine during summer. 

    Key Takeaways:  

    • Learn to appreciate the activities you’re doing during the holidays even though you’re not going to the gym. 
    • Understand that you’re still continuing with your goals, they just look different. 
    • Let go of your fear of not going to the gym and instead allow yourself to be in the present moment. 

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [1:46] Don’t be dismissive of the exercises you’re already doing.  
    • [5:26] Challenge yourself on where you can be more active outside your fitness routine. 
    • [7:32] The mindsets needed to help you with consistency.  

    Quote: 

    “If you’re not so quick to be dismissive of exercises that you’re doing, then you’ll find that you’re a lot more active than you think.” [2:39]

    Have you been struggling to find consistency in your fitness habits or other habits in general? Don’t we all at some point? But, sometimes why we fail is because we don’t ask ourselves the right questions, we don’t establish our end goal at the very beginning of setting them. To achieve your goals, you have to stay committed and to stay committed, you have to ask yourself how. 

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I talk about the importance of asking yourself the right questions like ‘how do I do it’ to achieve your goals. Listen in to learn why sometimes having blind faith goes a long way.  

    Key Takeaways:  

    • The importance of shifting your mentality from ‘should’ to ‘how’ to commit to yourself and build your confidence. 
    • The power of focusing on the ‘how’ to stay sustained through your journey before you see results.  
    • How to stay committed to your habits to overcome second-guessing yourself. 

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [0:36] Why you should switch from asking yourself ‘what should I do’ to ‘how do I do it’.  
    • [3:19] A perfect example of having blind faith and learning how to do it.  

    Quotes: 

    • “Confidence comes from doing what you say you’ll do.” [2:20] 
    • “You’re not going to question yourself if you’re already committed to you.” [7:00]

    Last chance to order Life After Sport: igg.me/at/lifeaftersport  

     

    Do you have moments when you’re religiously keeping up with healthy habits but still feel like you need to do more? Like you’re still not doing enough? Well, I do too! When we do this, we fail to allow ourselves to feel proud of what we’re already doing. Stop being so hard on yourself! 

     

    Did you know that one is greater than zero? You have to understand that anything you’re already doing is a step in the right direction. You don’t always have to be doing anything better, just doing anything can be better than doing nothing.  

     

    I’ve recently had to remind myself to celebrate whatever I’m doing and the stage I’m at. Things are changing again than how they were during quarantine and you might be feeling the need to be at your best, which shouldn’t be the case. I would advise that instead of looking for the best thing, look for the next thing. Think of something that could get you to the next little step and not the best step. 

    Quotes: 

    • “Anything that you’re doing is a step in the right direction.” [3:41] 
    • “Instead of looking for the best thing, look for the next thing.” [6:21]

    In what way are you transitioning in your life today? Are you a former athlete wanting to transition to an everyday athlete? Or you’re just transitioning your health and fitness journey to a different phase? It is important to slow down between changes to recover and avoid burnout. Take that period as an offseason to enjoy the present moment and your emotions.  

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I talk about the importance of slowing down in between life transitions, as detailed in my upcoming book. Listen in to learn the benefits of allowing both your body and mind to recover and prepare you for the next challenge.  

    Key Takeaways:  

    • The importance of slowing down to reflect as you transition in life.  
    • Focus on your new priorities as you transition without burning down. 
    • Stop feeling so rushed to what is to come and enjoy the present moment and realize your feelings more.  
    • The value of giving yourself a resting period to recover before moving on to other things. 

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [2:18] How to slow down and reflect instead of jumping on the next big thing. 
    • [5:00] Understanding that your needs and goals are going to change as an athlete. 
    • [6:12] My rushed transitioning story and what I wish I had done differently at that time.  
    • [9:04] How to relax, rest, recover and enjoy the offseason.  

    Quotes: 

    • ‘Priorities change; you need time to reflect.” [4:57] 
    • “We’re so uncomfortable with not knowing what’s coming that we want to speed up the process of transition.” [8:43] 
    • “By slowing down, I would have just enjoyed the present moment more; I would have realized my emotions more.” [8:51]

    What if I told you that going wide with your fitness habits will not give you success? I know that might seem odd, but actually focusing on one thing will get you to the tipping point rather than being all over the place. Doubling down on that one activity be it running or lifting weight is more likely to give you results than adding other things to accompany either.

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I talk about the benefits of going deep with your health and fitness habits rather than going wide. Listen in to learn how to reach success levels with that one activity that you probably don’t think will get you there.  

    Key Takeaways:  

    • Stop going so wide with your habits and instead focus on one thing that will give you success.  
    • How going deep with one thing allows you to get to the tipping point of your habits. 
    • Improve on the one activity you’re doing and get better at it instead of adding other things.  

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [2:49] Why you’re not seeing results for going wide with your habits. 
    • [5:44] The importance of going deep with one thing rather than being all over with many things.  
    • [9:27] Why you should double down on the one thing you’re already doing if you feel stuck.  

    Quotes: 

    • “Success comes from going deep, not by going wide.” [5:34] 
    • “Stop focusing on growing, focus on going deeper.” [5:39]

    How strong is your intuition? Are you really connected with yourself on a deeper level? We are all born with intuition but then lose it to the outside world which tells us what we should be doing. But did you know you can reconnect with your intuition by quietly listening to what your body and mind need?  

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I speak with Kelley Hoag, an alignment coach and the founder of Root to Rise Health. She empowers men and women to become the authentic intuitive leaders of their lives using spiritual alignment and practical habits. Listen in to learn how rebuilding your intuition will lead you to self-love and self-trust. 

     

    Key Takeaways: 

    • How we take ourselves out of alignment and weaken our intuition by listening to the outside world.  
    • How to love yourself by first trusting yourself and allowing intuitive guidance.  
    • The power of focusing on what you need and not what you should be doing.  
    • How to experience and observe your emotions to strengthen your intuition and get in touch with your body on a deeper level.  
    • How to start reconnecting with your intuition with small practice like a deep breathe every morning before building it up to meditation.  

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [1:43] Defining intuition and how we weaken it by second-guessing ourselves.  
    • [6:09] Kelley describes her journey with less self-trust and less self-love and how she shifted that story.  
    • [9:55] Tips on how to slow down and connect with your intuition.  

    Quotes: 

    • “You really can’t have unconditional self-love without self-trust.”- Kelley [3:47] 
    • “As we get older with conditioning and society, our intuition gets quieted and weakened and we have to as adults, learn and unlearn how to reconnect to it.”- Kelley [2:05] 
    • “By experiencing the emotion, we’re able to observe it to what it really is, and that’s helping to strengthen our intuition.”- Kelley [12:18]

    How is your relationship with food? Are you an obsessive dieter or an intuitive eater? Or are you in the messy middle? We often have underlying issues where our control with food comes from, and it is not a matter of switching off your extreme eating habits. It is important to become informed by the science of food before adopting dieting or intuitive eating to understand your body and the impact of either.

    Key Takeaways: 

    • Why it is hard to get out the mentality of dieting.  
    • How to adopt informed eating- eating whatever makes you feel good without extremes.  
    • How we struggle with our relationship with food when going through difficult times.  
    • Consider the effects of dieting or intuitive eating before you start indulging in any of it. 
    • How to work through your eating mentality and where it’s coming from.  
    • Learn how to embrace where your body is at and accept that your body will sometimes go through changes.

    • [3:32] The messy middle- being between an obsessive dieter and an intuitive eater. 
    • [12:08] How Devyn let go of attaching her self-worth to being thin.  
    • [15:48] How to create a personal lifestyle that works for you.  
    • [9:13] Learn to surrender and listen to your body when going through changes.  

    Quotes: 

    • “If you’ve been dieting your whole life and you’ve seen food as a thing to be controlled, it’s really hard to reject that.”- Devyn [4:18] 
    • “Before we start to indulge and before we start to go towards a more intuitive place, we need to think how that is going to make you feel.”- Devyn [14:51] 
    • “Even if you’re someone that’s comforted by control, there have to be times in life you give that up.”- Devyn [19:19]

    Have you been trying to focus on achieving your fitness goals by staying consistent, but you keep falling off-track? That’s maybe because you’re relying on motivation and not discipline. You see, motivation lasts for as long as it does, while discipline stays for as long as you want it to. For you to commit to your goals and execute them, you have to discipline your day and mind. 

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I speak with Lashawn Gee, an author, a mindset coach, and a former athlete. She teaches student-athletes and young women how to activate discipline using mindset strategies so they can navigate academics, athletics, and life after sport without overwhelm. 

     

    Listen in to learn the benefit of changing your mindset on how you approach your goals with gratitude so that you can achieve them with ease.  

     

    Key Takeaways: 

    • The importance of preparing yourself for a life outside of playing sport by activating discipline during that career period. 
    • How to find energy by surrendering and digging deeper into your faith to persevere when things get difficult.  
    • How to tap into discipline to create healthy habits, long-term routines, and reach your life goals.  
    • How to activate your discipline by deciding to commit to your goals, visualizing them, executing the plan, and showing gratitude.   
    • Change your mindset and verbiage to do energetic things because you’re willing and are able to do so.  

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [2:11] How Lashawn’s personal life, athletic life, and career life experiences inspired her to write her book The Jump That Counts.   
    • [10:23] Learn to reflect on what got you from deeper situations to help you achieve your goals.  
    • [12:30] How to activate your discipline with Lashawn’s carpe diem strategy.  
    • [18:10] How to change your mindset on how you approach and work on your goals.  

    Quotes: 

    • “You either draw from motivation, which only lasts for as long as you’re motivated; or discipline which is instilled in us that were can tap into every day.”- Lashawn [9:34] 
    • “If you’re grateful for the things that you have now, then as you continue to take action, you’ll even be more grateful for the journey that you’ve taken.”- Lashawn [16:38] 
    • “Always remember to pour into yourself, reflect on your day and week.”- Lashawn [22:37] 
    • “When you fill yourself up that way, you’re able to help and impact others.”- Lashawn [23:34]

She is an educator and author whose mission and goal is to teach others the power of the brain and body connection, how exercise can help anxiety, and aims to end the stigmas around mental health/mental illness.  

     

     

    Listen in to hear Diana’s story and how you can use her techniques for your own fitness journey. 

     

    Key Takeaways:  

    • Using your physical health to improve your mental health
    • How to make daily milestones to check in with yourself
    • How fitness can make you step outside of your comfort zone
    • Where do you direct your energy

    Have you ever felt shame and guilt for wanting to be healthier? This is not something that people talk about often, but it is within us. Many factors can contribute to your feeling that, especially in today’s very opinionated world. I myself have recently been feeling guilty and ashamed of my fitness journey because of influence, even though to be honest, I had no reason to.  

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I talk about the shame and guilt that we sometimes experience for being health conscious. Listen in to learn the importance of having and following your intentions not to be swept under the wave of shame and guilt. 

     

    Key Takeaways:  

    • Why you shouldn’t allow other people to have a say in your health and fitness choices because that’s your business, not theirs.  
    • How comparing yourself, especially on social media can lead to guilt and shame about your journey.  
    • How some people who’ve found food freedom shame those doing things differently from intuitive eating. 
    • The importance of following plans that work for your body rather than what you’re told- eating with intention. 
    • Keep in mind that it’s normal to feel guilty and it’s your opinion that matters most. 

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [3:22] Understanding where the guilt of being healthier comes from.  
    • [5:30] Comparing your health and fitness journey with a promotion at work.  
    • [8:45] Why I started feeling guilty with my fitness story after joining TikTok.  
    • [14:01] Why you shouldn’t allow yourself to be shamed for choosing to diet over intuitive eating. 

    Quotes: 

    • “I just want to be a little bit more intentional with my choices for my body so I can show up better in other areas of my life.” [8:21] 
    • “If dieting didn’t exist, intuitive eating would just be called eating.” [16:12] 
    • “You have yourself, you have your intentions, and what you want to do is up to you.” [18:19]

    What excuses are holding you from achieving your desired goals? Is it inauthentic with your journey? It is so easy to get caught in what others are saying about fitness. But did you know you are more likely to achieve your goals by being authentic and doing whatever feels good to you?

    A health and fitness journey is about transitioning to what feels right to you today like we talk about all the time in this show. Whatever looks amazing today may change for you tomorrow or in a few months. I have made quite a few transitions myself since my athletic days, and to be honest, I’m still evolving.

    So, you managed a 10-minute walk earlier today? Excellent! Remember that success only comes when you decide to meet yourself where you are and by staying consistent. You have to learn how to show up for yourself by transforming your choices into habits. How about instead of setting goals when motivated, you create intentional systems that will help you keep going when you don’t feel like it?

    What if I told you today that you can eat whatever you want and still get to lose weight? But that’s impossible you say…I understand that after years and years of jumping from one diet to the next, it can be hard to believe that you can eat carbs and lose weight. But you see, it’s all about healing your relationship with food and shifting your mindset. Are you ready? 

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I speak with Rachel Freiman, an international coach, and a bestselling author. She teaches women how to lose weight while they’re still eating donuts.

    Key Takeaways: 

    • Understanding why nutrition should be taught as a skill that can be built on. 
    • Why your failure in healthy habits isn’t your fault but what you have been conditioned to. 
    • How to heal your relationship with food and trickle it down to your kids.  
    • Make the mind shift and the baby steps with your health and fitness instead of going all in at once.  
    • How to shift your mind with your health and fitness without expecting perfection.  
    • Stop thinking that taking care of yourself is selfish and start showing up for yourself.

    • [19:52] Rachael explains how you can commit to continuing with your healthy habits even when you mess up. 
    • [24:43] Learn to put in the work, show up for yourself, and start inspiring others.  

    Quotes: 

    • “Anytime you tell yourself you cannot do something; you are setting yourself up for failure.”- Rachel [11:09] 
    • “The idea with macro tracking is one we want to make healthier choices the majority of the time, while still allowing for those fun foods.”- Rachel [18:59] 
    • “When you’re taking care of yourself first, that is literally the least selfish thing you can do.”- Rachel [26:20]

    Have you ever taken a moment to think of the similarities between dating and dieting? Maybe you should look at your own dating or dieting patterns because there’s a possibility that your dating history is as bad as your dieting history and vice versa. We often continue making excuses with bad diets and relationships, not necessarily for ourselves, but for the outside world. But for you to heal your bad nutritional habits, you need to stop looking at others, and instead pay attention to your body from the inside out. Find your food freedom and be liberated! 

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I speak with Toni, a registered dietitian, the owner of Diet Tips with Toni, and recently gave a TED talk called Once Upon A Diet. She helps heal people’s relationships with food, gain self-confidence, and find balance in their eating habits. 

    Toni struggled for many years with bad eating habits and body image until she found value in good nutrition and gained confidence. Listen in to learn the close similarities between dating and dieting and how healing one can lead to healing the other.  

    Key Takeaways: 

    • The difference that simple healthy eating and exercising can make for your confidence.  
    • Learning how to balance taking care of yourself and being happy with where your body gets when you start living healthily.  
    • Stop trying to please society by striving to look a certain way.  
    • The similarities between relationships and dieting and why both should be about elevating your happiness.  
    • How to change or stop pushing for different results by repeating the same thing over and over again. 
    • Understanding that healthy looks different on everyone and not to compare your journey with others.  
    • The importance of surrounding yourself with healthy people with the same goals as you or walking the same path as you.  

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [2:14] Toni narrates her bad relationship with food and a negative body image growing up.   
    • [12:50] She explains the similarities between dating and dieting for their restrictive and compromising nature. 
    • [18:57] Why a nutritional plan should be about elevating what you love, with the same applying to relationships.  
    • [20:49] How ending a toxic relationship helped Toni move forward even with her food habits.  
    • [26:26] Tips on how to stop the dieting cycle whether with an eating disorder or with a disordered eating pattern.

    Don’t we all wish we could resist unhealthy urges that seem to come out of nowhere? The ones that end up becoming bad decisions stopping us from reaching our goals sooner?

    Are you truly enjoying sexual and life pleasures just the way you are without judgment? I know the journey to loving and accepting your body isn’t easy, but unless you acknowledge your underlying body issues, you won’t enjoy yourself either. You have to create a connection with your body no matter what size or shape you are in to find pleasure with it. 

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I speak with Ekaterina Timofeeva, a food freedom and pleasure coach who helps women heal food and body obsession and express their sexuality. She struggled with a dieting obsession for many years before finding the right resources and support to form healthy eating habits.

    Key Takeaways: 

    • The importance of finding support and accountability to help you get through your unhealthy eating habits.   
    • How educating yourself with the right resources and tools can help you get to your health goals faster. 
    • How to experience sexual and life pleasure by getting in tune with your body after transforming one area of your life. 
    • Learning to let go of the negative self-image you have for yourself to create trust with your body.    
    • How to accept your reality and then work towards bettering yourself.  
    • Physical and mental practices to help you become aware of your body and develop a connection with it. 

    Episode Timeline:

    I know the goal of all of our fitness efforts is to see results, right? And because of this, we often get emotionally tied to the outcome goals rather than falling in love with the process. The scale, for example, is a tool to use in your fitness journey, but those numbers failing to produce what you want can lead you to sabotage your fitness plan altogether. 

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I talk about how to replace outcome goals with progress goals to lose or gain weight healthily. Listen in to learn how the scale can be used as a tool and not a determiner of your fitness progress. 

     

    Key Takeaways:  

    • Start looking at progress goals- what you can do to lose weight in a healthier and approachable way.  
    • How the scale provokes emotions that can lead to the sabotage of your whole weight loss plan.  
    • The benefits of progress goals over outcome-oriented goals. 
    • Understanding that the scale staying steady at the beginning of your fitness journey, means progress and not a setback.  

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [1:50] How to track the activities that will give you the results you want. 
    • [6:13] Why the weighing scale doesn’t add anything to your health.  
    • [7:47] Learn to focus on your progress goals and not worry about the scale being steady during the initial stages.  

    Quotes: 

    • “Start setting progress goals, starting looking at what actions you’re going to do lead you there.” [3:02] 
    • “In the beginning, it’s going to be progress and a win to see the scale stay steady.” [8:02] 
    • “The main thing is focusing on the efforts that get you to the result.” [10:01] 

     

    Answering your most common question "How do I measure success if the scale always fluctuates?" Learn what you should be tracking to see results, how to use the scale as a reliable tool, and a word of encouragement that you're actually closer than you may think.

    Have you really ever reflected on all the gains that fitness has added to your life? Those little things like showing up for your routine every morning or when you push yourself for ten more seconds past your breaking point. I gained confidence after pushing myself to show up in uncomfortable group fitness classes. It could be anything, but as long as you’re growing, it’s a gain! 

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I talk about the fitness gains that I started reflecting on in January 2020 when I attended a fitness networking event. Listen in to learn the importance of surrounding yourself with a community of high achievers because you become one.  

     

     Key Takeaways: 

    • How surrounding yourself with motivated people looking to level up their life can inspire you to be better.  
    • How showing up for yourself in little things helps build your confidence.  
    • Adopting the model of improving even in the tiniest ways to build the rest of your life.  
    • How finding the right fitness routine gives you an environment to thrive in.   

     

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [3:22] Why you become the people you surround yourself with.  
    • [7:04] The importance of pushing yourself to do hard things to keep getting better.  
    • [9:18] The fitness gains that would otherwise be absent if not for a befitting workout program. 

    Quotes: 

    • “You’re definitely a byproduct of everyone that you spend your time with.” [5:49] 
    • “When you think of what fitness is bringing into your life, it’s bringing a lot more than you even reflect on.” [9:20]

    Do you have supportive friends and family that help you in your health journey?  How clear and specific are you with your wellness intentions? Even though support is very important for your wellness journey, you have to understand that sometimes it is important not to make it a big deal.

    • Learning to make your health decisions not a big deal unless that’s your intention.  
    • How not to thrust your own stuff to others as their wellness ally.  
    • How to be specific with your family to make it easy for them to show up and help you with what you need.

    Making new health and fitness changes is hard just like that fad diet you keep failing at! But it all gets easier as time goes by and those changes turn into habits. The truth is that nothing is sustainable forever and a lifestyle you adopt today might change tomorrow, and it’s perfectly all right to keep experimenting.  

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I talk about the misleading messaging in the fitness community that a lifestyle you can’t do for the rest of your life is unsustainable. Listen in to learn the importance of choosing a health and fitness lifestyle that you enjoy and not necessarily what is sustainable.  

     

    Key Takeaways: 

    • Understanding why starting a new lifestyle doesn’t seem sustainable in its initial stages. 
    • Normalize trying different health and fitness things at different stages of your life.  
    • Stop trying to figure it out and just make it a trial and error until you find what works for you.  
    • Look for what you enjoy now because nothing is sustainable forever.  

     

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [4:42] Why it is normal to experience hardship as a beginner, and it’s shouldn’t be an excuse for you to go back to ‘easier’ ways.  
    • [7:11] How things are hard at the beginning but turn easier as they become your habits.  

     

    Quotes: 

    • “There’s so much trial and error in this, just like there’s trial and error in life.” [6:05] 
    • “Anything is hard when it’s new and different, but then it grows to be part of your lifestyle.” [7:57]

    Ever wonder why some days you wake up feeling super energized and others you just feel drained for no reason at all? Did you know that hormonal health goes beyond your reproductive health? It impacts your overall body wellness making it crucial to have a hormonal balanced body. The way you move, nourish, and honor your body highly determines how healthy your hormones are throughout your menstrual cycle.

She helps women connect to their natural cycles and heal their hormonal struggles. She shares her personal struggles with hormonal imbalance that she healed naturally, and that set her on the path she’s on now. 

     

    Listen in to learn the importance of tracking your cycle to better understand your body and what it needs to stay healthy.  

     

    Key Takeaways: 

    • Understanding why hormonal health refers to whole-body health and wellness, not just reproductive health.  
    • The importance of moving your body in a mindful way to avoid inflicting hormonal imbalance.  
    • Learning to nourish your body before and after exercising, and honoring your body to avoid hormonal imbalance.  
    • How cycle syncing helps you understand your body better and choose activities that your body needs and can perform at a time. 
    • The benefits of cycle tracking in giving you information about the health of your hormones and body altogether.  

     

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [0:55] Hormonal health explained.  
    • [2:16] Brandy Oswald narrates her journey with hormonal imbalance which she uses to serve others experiencing the same.   
    • [7:56] Signs to look out for hormonal imbalance caused by excessive exercising. 
    • [13:20] Brandy Oswald explains cycle syncing which is working out in the rhythm of your menstrual cycle.  

     

    Quotes: 

    • “It’s really important to listen to our bodies so, get rid of that no pain no gain mindset.”- Brandy Oswald [11:14] 
    • “Sometimes is just about being more present with what our bodies need.”- Brandy Oswald [18:44]

    It’s that time of the year again when you want to create new goals in the hopes of becoming a better you, right? Does that mean you’re going to ditch what you’ve already been doing so far because, well, it was an unprecedented year after all? But how about thinking of goals that make you feel most energized and fulfilled instead of following what your friend is doing.  

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I discuss that one key question you need to ask yourself before making those new health and fitness goals for yourself. Listen in to understand how your goals should be a bridge between where you are now and where you want to be.  

    Key Takeaways: 

    • The importance of reflecting on what you’ve been doing for your health and fitness before setting a new goal.  
    • Stop putting yourself down because of what you didn’t do, and instead take note of what did and didn’t happen to help you this year. 
    • How to let your goals be a bridge between where you are and where you’re going.  

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [1:09] Think of the goals you accomplished, adjusted, and what didn’t work for the past year. 
    • [4:20] How to set goals in relation to your ideal life.  
    • [8:31] Reflecting on my journey with ‘Girls Gone Healthy’ over the past year, plus 2021 plans. 

    Quotes:

    Feel like you’re always pushing for more, more, more? Too much of anything, even a workout routine is harmful to your body. Self-care also means letting yourself lay back and relax, not just actively working out. A healthy lifestyle should be a mix of what makes you happy! 

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I speak with Samantha Kellgren, a certified health coach who used to be an avid marathon runner but got caught up in some of the extremes and lost her periods. She now helps others find their balance, stop obsessing, and start living. She shares her personal health and fitness journey from obsessive extremes to a balanced lifestyle where she gets to do what is good for her. 

     

    Listen in to learn the importance of finding and sticking to healthy habits that are good for you without comparing your progress with others. 

    Key Takeaways: 

    • How fitness extremities can negatively affect your body in the long run. 
    • How to find new things to enjoy to break the routine of fitness extremes.  
    • Think of what you can cut back on or add to your routine to help you smoothly transition from intense exercising to gentler exercising. 
    • The importance of doing what makes you happy rather than what you feel you should be doing.  
    • Learn to do what is good for you and not expect to get the results of others.  
    • The power of having control in workouts and eating habits you like.  

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [2:09] Samantha narrates how she fell in love and enjoyed running since college and when it started becoming an issue.  
    • [8:47] How she found and adjusted to new ways that she enjoyed outside of intense running. 
    • [14:57] How to add or reduce activities in your exercising routine to change and find a balance. 
    • [22:50] How Samantha learned and developed healthy eating habits. 
    • [28:58] How to be comfortable doing the workout routines that are workable for you.  

    Quotes: 

    • “Scaling back is seen like letting go when it can be what you need or what you want.”- Samantha [17:53] 
    • “Our bodies are totally different and we have to do what is good for us and not expect to get someone else’s results.”- Samantha [22:14]

    Did you want to move onto the next chapter of your life once you retired from competitive sports? Don’t we all…but you have to ask yourself if closing that chapter really is the best thing for your health. Think about it; you no longer have coaches, nutritionists, a training schedule, and all the other benefits that come with being a competing athlete. I would say you have an even bigger responsibility of taking care of yourself now more than ever if you ask me.   

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I talk about my book writing project which covers the topic of life after sport. Listen in to learn the importance of maintaining health and fitness in your life after sport.  

     

    Key Takeaways: 

    • How exercise is first introduced to us as a sport.  
    • The different unhealthy extremes during and after a sport, and why you should learn balancing in real life. 
    • The importance of keeping the athlete’s lifestyle even after retiring from the sport.  
    • Why you feel like you’re failing when you can’t take care of yourself every day as you did as an athlete.  
    • Reapplying the same things you enjoyed in sports to the next chapter of your life. 

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [3:41] How some athletes abandon their athlete identity once they leave the sport. 
    • [5:47] Why you should learn to take care of yourself after your athletic career.  
    • [9:59] I challenge you not to cut off completely your former sport.  

    Quotes: 

    • “Your first task after you’re done with sports is taking care of yourself.” [5:40] 
    • “How you take care of yourself as an athlete is different from everyday life.” [8:33]

    We all love the snooze button, don’t we? Those extra 10 minutes feels like heaven, if only they could last a little longer... But what’s a few minutes compared to the rest of your day? Because the truth is, that morning hour can either make or break the rest of your day. Sacrificing a few morning minutes will make you feel better the whole day than giving in to instant gratification. 

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I talk about setting up a successful morning routine- and not the ten-step one you dread. Listen in to learn the benefits of having a productive morning routine.  

     

    Key Takeaways: 

    • The importance of following through with a morning routine to set up the rest of your day. 
    • Stop sabotaging your day and instead learn to push yourself in the morning to feel better for longer than satisfying instant gratification.  
    • Boost your productivity by convincing yourself to get up when you initially said you would and give yourself time.  
    • How to create your own morning schedule that doesn’t necessarily mean waking up at six or having a ten-step morning routine.  

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [2:11] Two morning scenarios that can either set or destroy the rest of your day. 
    • [8:57] Have a plan before going to bed so you don’t have the time to talk yourself out of it in the morning. 
    • [13:43] How to find your own schedule even when you’re not a morning person.

    • “How are you spending that first hour of your day, because that can be a lot of wasted time.” [8:23] 
    • “Don’t give yourself so much time to think and talk yourself out.” [9:22]

    Do you have preconceived notions about how you should look? When growing up we pick up so much information about the way we should look, without regards to if our actions to get us there are healthy or not. Can you eat a healthy diet and still be unhealthy? 

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I speak with Sapha, who is an intuitive healer, a women’s health and wellness life coach, and a yoga teacher. She helps women change their relationship with self and the world around them so they can better step into their power, acknowledge their worth, and change their lives. She shares her intense story of bad eating habits from her childhood, discovering yoga and relapsing, and finally learning how to entirely loving herself without putting a reason to it.

    • Teaching women their true essence by helping them relate to their bodies, foods, and the world around them. 
    • Why eating lean and moving around doesn’t always mean healthy. 
    • How yoga helps you dig deeper into your true self and helps you start to disapprove of false preconceived things about yourself. 
    • Learning to nourish yourself in different ways and honor who you are and love yourself as your own true soulmate. 
    • The benefits of having someone support you like a coach or therapist who isn’t emotionally invested in what’s going on in your life.

    How often do you scroll through Instagram clicking people’s before and after pictures and wishing you could see those same results? You start to feel like you’ll never get to your “after” stage and compare yourself without knowing anything about how they got there. How would we feel if we started looking at our own progress, not someone else’s? 

     

    In this episode of Girls Gone Healthy, I have Jess, a college student, fitness instructor, and a retired dancer. She has undergone through many stages of her fitness journey from a confident dancer, to an unhealthy body comparing mindset to now helping others achieve their fitness goals. 

     

    Listen in to learn how to stop comparing your fitness journey and only focus on what you can achieve.  

    Key Takeaways: 

    • The mental unhealthiness and damage of before and after pictures.  
    • How different body types adapt to fitness and physical activities. 
    • How to lead from the fort- having the courage to stop comparing your body and instead help others with their fitness goals. 
    • Learning to show up consistently and develop a workout routine to notice the difference in your body.  

    Episode Timeline: 

    • [2:10] Jess explains why she retired from dancing and the events that led to some confidence issues. 
    • [9:11] How Jess changed her mindset from comparing her body daily to having a goal of helping others.  

    Quotes: 

    • “Transformational photos are actually not helpful because it’s saying there’s something fundamentally wrong with you before and something fundamentally better after.” [8:11] 
    • “If I want to help other people, I need to help myself first, I need to change from within.” [13:18] 
    • “Whatever it is for you that you actually enjoy, find out and then go do it because life’s too short to do exercise that you don’t like.” [19:09]

    What if I told you, you can can give into your late-night cravings? You can eat the snacks AND not feel guilty. What’s your reason for late-night snacking? Is it hunger, bad habits, or just mindlessness? There are many scientific reasons why you always find yourself in the middle of the night searching for snacks.
