With the New Year upon us, I've been doing a lot of reflecting about 2016 and thinking of ways that you and I can make 2017 our best year yet.

Grab your ear buds and lets make 2017 YOUR year.

On today's episode of the Progress over Perfection Podcast, we're discussing how to beat your sugar addiction. With the holiday's in full force, it's safe to say many of us are feeling the impacts of the higher levels of sugar consumption. Today, I interview Kes Rocha who knows sugar addiction all too well.

Kes Rocha, is a body loving, disease prevention focused Health & Wellness Morning Routine Specialist  and creator of the SUGAR REPAIR 6-WEEK PROGRAM, CLEAN EATING CHALLENGE, and her Signature 90 day KEEP EATING SIMPLE (KES) Plan®. 

After years of coaching her clients meet their weight loss health goals, she kept hearing the same struggles. "I'm addicted to sugar"!  "My addiction with sugar and food is ridiculous and is affecting my health and general life." "I don't know how to quit."  

She observed this in so many clients that she devised a way to interrupt the cycle, help them kill their sugar addictions and give women back their lives and the power to make their own routines that work for them, SIMPLY!

Having kicked her own sugar addiction over 2 years ago she's now empowering others how to do the same. When she's not sharing inspiration with others on Facebook or in her challenges, she's enjoying the mountains of beautiful Utah with her handsome high school sweetheart, her look-just-like-mom teenage daughters, and the rest of the Rocha clan that all live within a mile of home.  

 

 

Show Notes:

 

-Who is Kes?

-Why her own story and struggles with sugar inspired her to become a health coach

-Are you addicted to sugar? How to know....

-9 questions you can ask yourself to see if you're addicted to sugar:

-What are the true harms of sugar?

-How can you kick the habit?

When you think about your goals and dreams for 2017, I want you to consider using the philosophy for "Acting As If." This simple yet effective saying has transformed many different aspects of my life. In today's episode, I'm going to walk you through a series of questions that you can ask yourself in order to make 2017 the year you actually do the things you want to do. 
 
Show Notes:
 
When you think about your goals and dreams for 2017, I want you to take a slightly different approach this year. 
 
I want you to ACT AS IF- Be in the essence. Because when it comes to weight loss or fitness and nutrition goals, what we're really searching for is the FEELING that it brings. So ask yourself a few of these questions:
 
-What would you do if you were already where you want to be?
-What are you feeling?
-What's coming up for you?
 
We've talked about shame a lot on this podcast but I want to remind you that you must expose the shame to release it. 
 
So one of the things that comes up when we are "Acting as if" formely known as faking it till we make it, I want you to ask yourself a few more questions.
 
If there's a certain story surrounding WHY you can't eat healthier or exercise or have a better relationship with food, I want you to ask yourself when did you create that story? Who was there? When did you feel it come up? What's the story you developed? Is that even YOUR story or is it your parents? I think this is something that's really worth mentioning and that's the story's we carry on from our parents and even our grandparents. 
 
So this is ALL a practice of awareness right? I'm a firm believer that until we take ownership, we cannot change. 
 
The beauty is, you have a CHOICE. You can create your life and the body you want. I want you to take a second and think about what it is you REALLY want in 2017......
 
When you truly BELIEVE that, you have this blissful, exciting feeling. As you grow your emotions around that expand. This is the idea of abundance. I've talked about this a lot before and that's the idea of a lack vs abundance mindset. 
 
The truth is that the Universe or God WANTS you to have abundance, but we can actually create our own blocks with limiting beliefs, the story's we tell ourselves whether we aren't good enough, we don't deserve X, etc etc.
 
So this year as you move into 2017, I want you to remember this idea of ACTING AS IF. 
 
IF you want to take it a step forward, write a letter to yourself AS IF you were already at your goal (weight loss, healthier lifestyle, whatever). What are the feelings that are coming up? What are your relationships like? Do you have less anxiety? More ease? Write it down. 
 
Lastly, don't forget to CELEBRATE Your success. You know that when we let things we've accomplished just go by the way side, we're sending a signal that it's "not a big deal" when it IS A BIG DEAL. Get excited. 
 
-Celebration keeps us excited and MOTIVATED. This is what keeps us going.

In today's 26th episode of the Progress Over Perfection Podcast, I'm talking about the 10 most transformative moments in my life to date. Reflecting on our past and how it's shaped us is one of the best exercises we can do. It allows you to get to know yourself, truly figure out what you want and where you want to go in life. It's important to look back at what worked, what didn't, and also equally as important to look forward and dream about the future.

We're back with our 25th episode of the Progress over Perfection podcast. Today, I'm talking about "The Hustle For Worthiness," inspired by Brene Brown. A close friend of mine recently confided in me that she feels unworthy in her new job. Knowing her, I knew without a doubt she was giving 110%, but she still felt like no matter how hard she worked she needed to keep proving herself.

 

That got me wondering, how many of us spend our lives "proving" ourselves to others? Whether it's in a job or relationship, the hustle for worthiness can only lead to one thing: disappointment. 

 

Show Notes: 

 
The Pathway to Worthiness:
 
1. Being careful not to connect our worth to things outside ourselves: Jobs, Relationships, Status, etc.
2. Acknowledge when you're seeking external validation --Example, Facebook
3. We've talked a lot about self-care and self-love on the podcast, but I want you to ask yourself if you're really doing this? Taking time to reconnect with yourself helps to diminish the external need. 
4. Success comes from believing you're worthy- they hired you for a reason, they see greatness in you. Don't make up a story that they think all these things, that'll get those demons running laps in your mind.

Today's episode is a special one. I was so excited to be able to do my first in person interview with Willow Bradner who is an exceptional human being. When I met Willow 2 years ago, I had never personally experienced the presence of a psychic. Quite frankly I didn't really know much about what being psychic entailed except fort what we see int he movies. Crystal balls and other misleading information. 
 
As someone who never thought she'd be a believer, I encourage you to listen to this episode with an open mind. Willow's energy and story speak volumes for themselves. This gift and calling chose Willow, and it's a testament to many of us who at times feel our career chose us. Willow shares invaluable tips on how to connect to your intuition, how to get to the core of your inner voice and figure out what it is you really want. 
 
Please help me Welcome Willow, the accidental psychic to the show!
 
 
Show Notes:
 
-What is intuition? 
 
-How you can discover your inner voice
 
-Why are people so afraid to tap into their intuition and their voice?
 
-Our distorted view of what intuition and being psychic is
 
-Willow's childhood story and the gift she possessed but ignored for many years
 
-How can you start to make change and tap into your intuition? 
 
-What does it mean to really be grounded? 
 
-Ask these 3 questions to create more awareness in your day to day life: What do I want? How does it feel? What do I love? 
 
-What should you do when your ego shows up?
 
-How to shift from the victim mentality
 
-Why we need connection so desperately 
 
-What Willow is most excited about
 
-How Willow chooses Progress over Perfection

In this weeks episode, I'm talking about why I broke up with meal plans for good. This episode was inspired by a loyal listener who took the time to share a bit of her story with me. She mentioned her uneasiness around going off a meal plan and not trusting herself, and it took me right back to the time in my life when I felt the same. 3 years ago, I didn't know what life was like beyond a meal plan. The fear of not knowing what to eat, wondering if I'd gain weight and how my body would react were all things I battled. So in today's episode, I'm talking about the top 5 things you can do to help you live beyond a meal plan.

 

Shot Notes: 

I'm sharing my top 5 tips for living beyond a meal plan. 

-What are your non negotiables?

-What's the worst that can happen? Go there, write it down, play that scenario out

-Get curious about who you're spending time with/around

-Life beyond food

-Why indulging is so vital

I'm back with the 21st episode of the Progress over Perfection Podcast. In today's episode, I'm talking about my top 5 tips for navigating the holiday's and parties. This use to be a really anxiety provoking time of year for me. I was constantly nervous about going to parties and celebrating holiday's because I always felt pressure to eat certain things. My relationship with food and exercise wasn't the best, and it definitely hindered me from enjoying the season for what it is. I can confidently say that after many, many years of navigating the holiday's, I very much look forward to them now. So today, I want to help you ease into the holiday's with joy rather than fear. I want this season to be filled with memories of loved ones, adventures, and not how much you "felt" like you over ate and under exercised. I've got you covered, you're never alone. 

 

Show Notes:

1. Prioritize your healthy foods and fitness

2. Navigating the actual day of the holiday, parties and social gatherings

3. What to do with your fitness and food the few days after the holidays, parties, etc

4. Addressing family members, friends and co-workers who may push food on you

5. Last but not least, remembering what this season is all about

We're back with episode 15 of the Progress over Perfection Podcast. In today's episode, I interview Sarah Hays Coomer, the author Lightness of Body and Mind: A Radical Approach To Weight and Wellness. Sarah founded Strength Outside In, which is an uprising, a rejection of the idea that we need to control and overpower our bodies in order to make them better, stronger, and healthier.

Sarah is a personal trainer and #DietAbolisionist. You will never find Sarah at a bootcamp. Instead, you will find her wandering the hills of Tennessee, California, and anywhere else with sunshine, air, and a mountain to climb- stopping whenever she feels like it to lay flat on her back with a bottle of water in one hand and a cookie in the other.

On today’s episode, I interview Sonia Byrnes, a brilliant Australian teacher who spent a great deal of time working with a personal trainer in a private studio. Deep down, she often felt that something was "off," but she couldn't quite put her finger on it. Through much self-discovery, she realized that the culture had a shaming undertone. Sonia has since left the studio and has found many ways to move her body in ways she loves. You can find her writing memoir type letters on her blog to connect with others who experience the same shame she did. Her devotion to helping her students grow up with a positive body image and relationship to moving their bodies is down right inspiring. Please welcome Sonia to the show! 
 
Show Notes: 
 
  •  Sonia's relationship to movement
  •  What inspired her to work with a personal trainer in the first place
  • The ways her studio measured her "success" (being weighed, ringing a bell) 
  • In her heart of hearts, she knew "something" was off. She followed her gut and left
  • An email newsletter she received from her gym that left her jaw on the floor
  • Her response to said newsletter 
  • What progress over perfection means to Sonia
  • Actionable steps that you can take if you feel uncomfortable in gyms or with your personal trainer
