Ep. 72: Why I’m Taking a Break from Running Club

Ep. 72: Why I’m Taking a Break from Running Club

February 17, 2020

Have you ever been in a relationship that started out with sparks flying & that “just can’t get enough of you feeling”...but then somewhere down the line the fire fizzled out but you didn’t wanna face it? 

 

That’s kinda like my relationship to running club. I started going to running club last August when I was training for my first half marathon. For the first few months, I refused to miss one meeting. I loved how I felt during and after. I couldn’t get enough. 

 

But then somewhere along the journey...something happened. And I started dreading our weekly meetings. So I had to make the difficult decision to take a step back and reassess. Am I breaking up with running club? No. But we are on a break. 

 

And I share this journey with you because it likely mirrors a lot of similar relationships in your life...your relationship to exercise, food, your body, your significant other, and so on. 

 

You know I’m all about getting through the hardships, and sharing the life lessons with you along the way in hopes that you can learn something from it too. 

 

This episode is jam-packed with wisdom nuggets! It’s easily one of my favorites of all time. Enjoy!

January 27, 2020

Have you ever shared something personal with someone and immediately thought "oh my gosh, why did I just say that??" (followed by an internal cringe)?? I've had that experience a lot throughout my life. In fact, earlier this week I had one of those moments and it really got me thinking...

Why are we so afraid to open up and be vulnerable?? What's the cost of sharing ourselves with others? What's the benefit of it? Those are just a few questions I answer in this episode! 

I also share a strategy I use to help me feel less afraid, and more willing to share and connect with others.

Ep. 68: The #1 Habit that Defeats & Depletes You

Ep. 68: The #1 Habit that Defeats & Depletes You

January 20, 2020

I couldn't sleep last night, and I started thinking about an episode of the Bachelor I watched yesterday. One girl was stirring up a LOT of drama in the house, and it made the whole vibe so uncomfortable. When she was called out for being a bully, she denied it and cried because she couldn't believe in "such an accusation". 

It made me think about how easy it is for us to create a toxic environment for ourselves and the people around us without even being aware of it. 

So in this episode we're talking about the #1 culprit that leaves you feeling stuck, depleted, and defeated. 

And of course you know I'm not gonna leave you hanging by just telling you what it is, I'm also gonna give you some actionable tips on how to improve this area of yourself & your life. 

I hope this episode is not only eye-opening to you, but that you also take the message away with compassion for yourself and others. None of us are, or ever will be perfect!

"Coach". Does this word make you roll your eyes?? If it does, it might be because you feel bombarded with opposing messages from all types of coaches but you don't quite understand what they do. 

I can tell you from experience...coaching is gaining popularity for good reason. If you hire the "right" coach for you, they can help you truly transform yourself in ways you never thought possible. 

I've hired coaches for business, health, marketing, and more. And in this episode of the podcast, I'm sharing exactly how coaches can help. More specifically, I'm sharing the ins & outs of my coaching practice, and how exactly I'm able to help YOU. 

You'll learn WHY exactly coaching can be impactful, plus what sets me apart from other coaches.

Ep. 64: Stop the Negative Self-Talk!

Ep. 64: Stop the Negative Self-Talk!

December 9, 2019

Have you ever paid attention to how you speak to yourself?? Sometimes it can be horrifying to realize how mean we are to ourselves! The next question is...would you ever speak to someone else that way?? And unfortunately, sometimes the answer is YES! 

 

Criticizing, gossiping, and talking down to ourselves and others has become such a normalized part of our society. But imagine if we shifted that paradigm?? What kind of world could we create if we chose to speak love and power into ourselves, and those around us??

 

In this episode I share my thoughts on where our bad habit of negative self-talk stems from, the one realization that helped me transform the way I treated myself, plus some other ideas on how we can start to bring the best out in ourselves and others. 

 

Ready to change the world with me?? Let's do it!

Ep. 63: It’s Not your Job to be Everything to Everyone

Ep. 63: It’s Not your Job to be Everything to Everyone

December 2, 2019

Ever feel like it's your responsibility to make others happy? Or better yet...like it's your responsibility to make sure you don't upset anyone?? 

 

I grew up with an amazing mother, who always put everyone else's needs above her own. So what did I learn? To also put everyone else's needs above my own. 

 

Not only that...but I also learned to not "rock the boat", or upset anyone. So I spent a lot of my years walking on eggshells, absorbing everyone else's opinions, and people-pleasing my way through relationships. It's no wonder that I had no idea who I was until my mid-twenties. 

 

And then one day I learned this concept...I don't have to be everything to everyone. I'm allowed to upset people by just being myself, or speaking my mind. And guess what?? Their feelings are their responsibility. Not mine to take on. 

 

When I learned to set boundaries, and stopped spreading myself thin...things changed. I got to discover who I really am. What I believe...what I love...what I don't love...and it was such a liberating experience. 

 

But it can be hard, especially as women, to release the idea that we should be able to "fix", or "save" everyone around us. So on this episode of the podcast, I'm sharing the ways in which lacking boundaries stifles your joy, negatively impacts your health, and holds you back from your biggest dreams. And most importantly...I'm gonna teach you some mindset shifts and tips for detaching.
