Episode 49: 

On today's episode of the podcast, I chat with my longtime friend who is a grit and resilience extraordinare. Blake Thiess is one of those individuals who has a light about them that's undeniable. I remember meeting him for the first time and was instantly drawn to his positive energy and zest for life. This interview is no different. You can feel his passion for serving the world and helping others land their dream job in this interview.

Blake shares why building and maintaining resilience and grit are crucial components to your success in a career, a relationship, just about any aspect of your life. The beautiful part? It's simple yet so effective. So many times we get caught up on why we don't have something we want. This can result in jealousy that others have what we want and it leads us down a negative dark hole. Today, I'm happy to say that Blake will bring you the light and help inspire you to take a little more structured action on a daily basis to move you closer to whatever it is you want. 

I can't wait for you to hear this episode, so lets head over to the show!

Episode 48:

I'm back! I'm so grateful for your grace during the times when I truly need the space to create, gain clarity so I can ultimately show up for you in the best way I know how. I'm truly honored that you're taking the time to listen to this episode because if you've ever been unclear on your next path, where you're going, what's in store for your life, then I know this episode will resonate with you.

The past two weeks I've embarked on a spiritual journey that I sometimes struggle to put words to. It's been the most incredible time of growth, happiness, fulfillment and everything in between. The joy I've been able to feel is not because I'm "special" and somehow have abilities that you don't. Quite the opposite. I finally got to a point in my life where I said NO MORE, the pain of being stagnant and letting my fears run my life is over. I will take back my personal power to create a positive shift in my life and in the lives of those around me. 

This is easily THE most raw and real episode I've recorded to date. It's also the most in alignment with who I am as a human being and how I want to serve you. I know you'll enjoy this episode and likely relate to many of the things I have to say. 

I want you to know that I'm here for you. I'm here to support, love, stretch you and above all else, what you connect so deeply to yourself that you discover what your purpose on this planet truly is. You have a gift inside of you that only you have. Don't believe me? Ask the higher power you believe in.......I double dare you :)

Episode 47:

What if I told you that tomorrow I was going to gift you the VERY thing you've been dreaming of day after day? Would you be ready? 

The truth is, this topic comes up so often with my clients who want to lose weight, be more fit, stop thinking about food and finally develop an effortless routine. I want you to think about that dream I'm about to hand you, do you believe with all your heart that you'd be ready for it? Could you handle it? Knowing that you hadn't taken all the daily steps you knew you needed to take. Knowing that you were unsure of how to maintain it. 

Think about people who win the lottery. Typically, many of these people wind up spending all their money within a year of winning it. I think about this ALL the time as an entrepreneur, would I be ready if tomorrow Oprah showed up on my doorstep to collaborate? Maybe.

The whole point of achieving your dreams is that the JOURNEY is what allows you to carry out the result you are dying for. But Ali, the process is hard. It feels like a roller coaster, it feels like I'm never going to get there. I GET YOU. I've been there, I'm still there in certain areas of my life. But you know what? I know that if I stay the course, if i can find a way to become wildly obsessed with the process, that is what will get me there. I've never known anyone who became so excited and enjoyed a process to not reach their goal. You know why? They commit, every single day to doing one thing that will move them forward. They know that imperfect action trumps staying where they are. They know that by putting in the tiny efforts each and being consistent, that is what ultimately leads them to their dream. 

So I'll as you again, if you've been feeling impatient and wanting your dream to happen TOMORROW, would you be ready? Or do you have some work to do?

  1. Are you taking action?
  2. Are you putting one foot in front of the other?
  3. Are you throwing in the towel when things get hard or are you asking yourself more productive questions so that you can discover a different answer?
  4. Are you wildly obsessed with ENJOYING the process?

Episode 46:

I'm backkkkkkk! I took a much needed break from social media and technology as many of you noticed. I needed some time to connect back to my heart. One of the best ways for me to do that is to unplug, escape into nature and discover new inspiration and excitement. I feel refreshed and excited, so thank you for being patient as I took a short break from the podcast. I never want to create for you just to "create." I always want there to be purpose and meaning behind it all, and sometimes breaks are necessary for me to put my best foot forward.

Today I'm answering YOUR questions. I ask you all during every episode if you have questions you'd like me to answer. Normally your questions turn into entire episodes, but lately I've been compiling a list of shorter questions to answer all at once. Today I discuss:

    • Do you have to have seriously disordered eating to benefit from your help, or can people like me who have always been a touch overweight because they just love food be helped too?
    • What helps you, "get up and go"?
      What helps you do it again and again?
      What helps you snap out of it when you are in the middle of rejecting a healthy choice?
    • Do you know a psychologist that is amazing with food issues that takes insurance?
    • When is the struggles ever going to get better with weigh loss and exercises goals? Do you ever feel it's a struggle everyday?
    • What exercises are good for someone starting over?
    • I am very interested in health and nutrition and want to pursue a career change into the field. I know my current job drains my energy which has me reaching for junk food and skipping workouts. As a successful trainer working in the field, what would you recommend for someone looking to take my love of fitness and nutrition to the next level?
    • how do you maintain workout routine when you travel? do you have to think about it ahead of time (like look up nearby gyms, or plan specific hotel room workouts) so that you hold yourself accountable once you get there? for someone who is on the road a lot, what advice would you give for short, cardio-heavy workout sessions not at home?
    • How can I get more motivated

I hope you enjoy today's episode format, I really love answering your questions and providing as much help and value to you as I can. If there's something I didn't cover that you'd like me to address on a future episode, please head to mywebsite and shoot me an email or leave your question on my blog. I respond to blog comments much faster than email.

Episode 45: 

A friend recently reached out to me asking what my outlook on rest days is. This is a topic I'm extra passionate about. In an industry that can lean towards promoting "more is better" and "there are no excuses for not fitting in a workout," I feel quite different about this topic. I don't believe you need anyone telling you whether or not you're making up excuses. We all know when we're falling prey to that behavior, and in circumstances such as that, the best thing we can do is come to that conclusion on our own. To take ownership for our actions and decide to make a change.

In today's episode, I share my personal struggles early on in my journey when it came to embracing rest days and extra sleep. It took me quite a few years to realize that "less is truly more." That by allowing my body to have time off when it's sore, hurting or sick actually heightens my results in the long run. 

I realize this can be a difficult concept to comprehend. I wouldn't be surprised if you struggle in the beginning figuring out what that balance looks like in your life. I'm here to reassure you though, that you can do it. That while it may seem scary to pull back on the intensity, your body will thank you. You might even find you enjoy moving your body more when you give it time away.

Show Notes:

  • Why rest days are so important to your results and your health
  • How many rest days should you take in your personal journey?
  • What are the benefits when you rest and take time off?
  • What are the side effects of not resting when your body needs it?
  • What should you do if you are super sore?
  • What should your food look like on the days that you don't exercise? Should it be different than your active days?
  • Should you rest completely on your days "off," or is active rest a great option?
  • How important sleep is to your results and why it will actually be the very thing that takes you closer to where you want to be physically
  • How sleep and rest promote weight-loss, if that's your goal

Back by popular demand...Eliza Kingsford (aka my sister). We had such a great time talking about her book last time and so many of you sent an outpouring of love about that episode, that we decided to do part 2.

On today's episode of the progress over perfection podcast, we discuss how to recover from setbacks (aka life). We've both battled injuries this past year and learned so much from our "new normal." It can be a confusing time when life gets flipped upside down. Injuries can leave us wondering, "why did this happen to me?" Today, we discuss why that's actually benefitted our journey's in the long run.

We also dive deep into the scale, and why you might need to break up with it for a while (or forever). So many women have written me lately sharing their deep struggles with feeling like they are rocking in every department, but the minute the scale doesn't show them a number they like, it completely negates everything they've worked so hard on. Join us in this episode as we talk about why this behavior is so destructive and how you can beat it, once and for all.

We're back with our 42nd episode of the Progress over Perfection Podcast. If you caught last weeks episode on "life updates" then you know that we ate our way through our vacation in California. It was awesome, but to be honest, it's taken some pretty intentional shifts to get back on track since being home. It is always my goal to share openly and candidly with you as I always think, "if sharing this helps one person not feel alone, then it's worth it." 

Today I'm sharing my top 5 tips for getting back on track after vacation, plus my 4 bonus tips for what you can do while you're on vacation to try and avoid feeling the harsh aftermath.

This week on the progress over perfection podcast, I'm talking all about why the scale lies to you. 

We are in week 2 of the POP Academy and every single woman this week has come to me at some point and said, "Ali, the scale isn't moving, I feel like a failure." It breaks my heart and has been a longtime trend in new clients I've worked with in the past. I'm here to tell you something, you're doing nothing wrong. There are a LOT of factors that play into weight loss, and I know today's episode will really give you insight into why the scale isn't actually moving. It's probably not what you think....

This week on the Progress over Perfection Podcast, I'm interviewing someone very special to me. Technically I'm breaking all the rules (they say you shouldn't interview your own family, but you know what? I LOVE to do everything people tell me not to do, because lets face it, life's too short to follow the straight and narrow path and not do what feels right). So this week, my sister Eliza Kingsford, author of Brain Powered Weight Loss is here to share the truth behind the obesity epidemic, why 70 % of the population is considered over weight, why mindfulness is such a crucial component in creating lasting behavior changes and last but certainly not least, why people may have the wrong idea about struggling with binge eating and what the clinical term actually means.

This weeks episode of the Progress over Perfection Podcast has been long in the making. Over the past 10 years in my career in the Fitness industry, as a National Fitness Trainer, Nutritional Coach and Group Fitness Instructor, I've noticed a lot of similarities. There are themes that come up continuously and after starting this podcast, the emails came pouring in about these same topics. 

 

People wanted to END their battle with food, move joyfully and feel radiant in their own skin. They wanted to stop restricting and start living their life. 

This week I opened the doors to the founding members of the Progress over Perfection Academy. Are you ready to end your food & body struggles for good? Are you ready to ditch the punishing workouts and discover new one's that make you feel strong and FREE?

She began using positive affirmations to turn her life around and swears to this day that it's been the biggest game changers in her body image, fitness and her overall life. Lynn and I also discuss how traveling on a low budget over the past year has allowed her to grow beyond her wildest dreams.

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?

-Why his story prompted him to want to give back to others in a similar way

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.
