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. It takes conscious effort to do reflective work and to dream big, but the cost of NOT doing it? Far higher. It means unrealized dreams. Missed relationships. So what are you waiting for? 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) PlanĀ®. 

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.

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.
