208: Lifting Without the Urgency of Weight Loss

You’ve done it, you know you have. You decide you’re going to lose weight so you start some sort of challenge or commit to some sort of “new lifestyle” in which you are expected to “stick to the plan” come hell or high water so that you can have a “good” weigh-in and have “good” progress photos.

[BIZ 38]: Creating Content vs. Talking About Your Offers

WHOA- did you know that your content and talking about your offers are two totally different things? Yes.

207: Tips for Getting Out of a Funk

    2020 has been on big funk, hasn’t it? If you’re feeling a little gloomy, this episode is for you.

What To Do When You’re Under Extreme Pressure

“I think life is an awful lot like a pressure cooker. Something delicious is waiting for you when you release the pressure.” Sometimes, you need the pressure. You know that saying about diamonds?

Working Out Feels Different When It’s a Choice

It used to be admirable to be so dedicated to fitness… so relentlessly obsessed with changing & maintaining your aesthetic. Only a woman truly dedicated to the way her body looks can understand.

How To Handle Having Cellulite

Just like this. You just have it, continue to exist and carry on as usual, normalize it, and reduce shame by not trying to hide it. Bonus points for highlighting it. Fitness pursuits and athletic pursuits are different. They are not (or do not have to be) mutually exclusive. Years ago this would have wrecked me. “How could I be …

I Don’t Want My Clients to Need Me

The Ideal Client Paradox I used to want clients that NEEDED me. You, too? It makes sense- if someone doesn’t desperately need you, they won’t hire you, right? Except, when a client is desperate for a change and doesn’t have a track record of being tenacious & resourceful on their own, you can accidentally create a less-than-empowering dynamic between you …

Is Your Body A Reflection of How You Feel About Yourself?

A word, if I may. This idea that the way we look = how we feel is often backed by how we get our nails & hair done and “no one is shamed for doing that so why should women be shamed if they want to lose weight.” You’re not bad for wanting to lose weight- nor is that the …
