    Why Can’t I Believe People When They Say I Look Good? Ft. Morgan Simianer From Cheer

    Why Can’t I Believe People When They Say I Look Good? Ft. Morgan Simianer From Cheer

    This week Aleen is joined by Morgan Simianer, star of everybody’s favorite bingeable Netflix reality series Cheer. Morgan tells us what she’s been up to in the past two years since finding sudden fame with the team from Navarro College in season one. Aleen and Morgan talk about what it’s like to be a high profile (and high pressure) athlete, both mentally and physically, as well as how Morgan’s life has changed since the show aired. We also hear about what’s next for Morgan now that her cheering career is behind her, which surprising thing gives her the most anxiety (hint: it’s not flying through the air in a death-defying stunt), and what it feels like to be getting compliments from strangers when you don’t see yourself that way.

    Admit It, You Stare At Yourself On Zoom Ft. Drs Lindsay & Lexie Kite

    Aleen is rejoined by sisters Dr. Lindsay Kite and Dr. Lexie Kite, co-authors of the book More Than a Body: Your Body Is an Instrument, Not an Ornament for this week's Dear DST. The conversation kicks off with Lexie, Lindsay and Aleen sharing their Non-Scale Wins. Next, they dig into some listener emails about breaking bad habits and how we can fight off the peer pressure that some of us feel to keep up with the "norm" of beauty standards (cough cough, botox and fillers).

    Sami's Skiing Drama And Aleen's New Favorite Workout

    Sami's Skiing Drama And Aleen's New Favorite Workout

    On this week’s Back for Seconds, Sami and Aleen are catching up on all things wellness related that are going on in their lives. From workouts that Aleen is loving to Sami’s latest health update, we cover it all. Plus, we break apart that scene in Euphoria about how it’s impossible to hate yourself these days when it seemed like the whole world has joined a self-help cult, and talk about why truly loving yourself is the hardest thing to do.

    Stop Looking At Your Body And Start Living In It Ft. Drs. Lindsay & Lexie Kite

    Stop Looking At Your Body And Start Living In It Ft. Drs. Lindsay & Lexie Kite

    This week, Aleen is joined by Dr. Lindsay Kite and Dr. Lexie Kite, co-authors of the book More Than a Body: Your Body Is an Instrument, Not an Ornament and identical twins. They’re also co-directors of the nonprofit Beauty Redefined. Lindsay and Lexie work to help women understand that having a positive body image isn’t just about believing your body looks good, it’s knowing your body IS good—regardless of how it looks. They share lessons on how we can better ourselves, while acknowledging we’re human and will inevitably compare ourselves to others more than we’d like to admit. They also break down their approach of inspiring younger generations to feel the same. Start being nicer to your body by reading their book: https://amzn.to/3qkS9Av and find out more about their online courses at www.morethanabody.org

    We All Judge People Ft. Jordan Syatt

    We All Judge People Ft. Jordan Syatt

    Aleen is back with Celebrity Fitness Trainer Jordan Syatt for this week’s Dear DST episode. We kick things off by sharing our Non-Scale Wins of the week and then read some listener emails. Both emails share a common (and very relatable) theme: body image. The first emailer is focused on their post-wedding body image, and the other on the body image of someone they’re dating. Jordan shares that it’s okay to value your health as one of the most important things in any relationship, and judgey-ness isn’t all bad. I mean, we all judge people constantly, right? Right?!!

    Low Intensity Cardio Can Be Just As Good As HIIT Ft. Jordan Syatt

    Low Intensity Cardio Can Be Just As Good As HIIT Ft. Jordan Syatt

    Aleen is reunited with one of the most requested DST guests, celebrity trainer and lover of big salads, Jordan Syatt! They start by catching up on everything Jordan’s been up to since he was last on the show in 2019 (where did time go?) including a big relationship change, a cross-country move, and a new fitness hobby. Then they talk about fitness best practices, wellness must-dos & don’ts, and a whole lot more. Plus, they discuss popular fitness myths & the truth behind them, including why Jordan thinks HIIT is not it and why low intensity cardio workouts are still super beneficial for your health. Finally, Aleen and Jordan answers some interesting listener-submitted questions and have a quick convo about Harry Potter.

Love the Pod!

I really do love the podcast, it’s definitely helped me shift my mindset in some ways and has been very beneficial for that.

Recently I’ve found a lot of the virtual episodes become hard to listen to. The talking over each other due to delays and long silences. I listen to other podcasts that record virtually that don’t have these same issues. I feel like maybe the editing could be better to avoid this?

Overall though, I love the podcast and love listening to Aleen and Sami as well as all the fun guests!

Like A Car Crash

I’m still confused by all of it having listened to this podcast for the past year. The only way I can describe it is that it’s like a car crash. You shouldn’t look at the carnage as you drive but but can’t help not to.

In summary:

-two best friends who clearly are competing against each other and most likely talk behind each others backs while off pod

-the whole “diet starts tmrw” idea is fine but my question is “have these girls ever been successful with their body composition?” Their diet banter comes across more so as two overweight young women bitter at women who actually have control over food and their bodies

-both Sami & Aleen seems like the annoying girls from high school that no one liked; lose the valley girl voices—it’s irritating

-glad Sami is leaving; tired of listening to her IE “journey”—just an excuse to gain a ton of weight (which is NOT healthy)

-hopefully Aleen will get more guests that are focused on true health and not HAES

Growth and support

I have been listening for the last year to Sami and Aleen. I love the podcast and you have both become my internet friends in my ears.

I have loved watching the podcast move from how can we be smaller, take up less space, and fit into “society” and now listening to them talk about their body confidence, what is “healthy” mentally and physically and how can we just be happier in our own bodies. I truly believe we are witnessing growth and transformation and it’s a beautiful thing to see all while laughing our asses off at Jared sneaking snacks at midnight in Boca. Thanks for your vulnerability while you bring us through life.
