Urge Incontinence - Urine for a surprise on how to stop peeing uncontrollably!
Today we’re talking about a topic that doesn’t feel all that mellow yellow: the experience of peeing when you don’t want to be peeing. It’s called urinary incontinence (UI), and it affects A LOT more people than you might guess!
Though this topic is a little taboo, we’re going to have some fun with it, and by the end, you’re going to know what to do about it for yourself or your loved ones.
UI occurs when you suddenly get a strong urge to pee and you just can’t get to the toilet quickly enough. It’s caused by your bladder sending you the “urge” signal and failing to be controlled by your pelvic floor muscles.
In this episode, I’ll share pro tips on what to do in these scenarios and how to train your muscles, so that you can remain happy and splash-free!
Take responsibility for your health and find your power!
Remember that 90s pop song where the woman sang, "I've got the power!"? She's right. She does, and you do, too!
There may be many things in life that we don’t have control over, but there is quite a lot that we DO, especially when it comes to your health. When you take responsibility for creating changes that are within your power, you move from the passenger seat to the driver’s seat. And then you're free to put the pedal to the metal!
Recognizing and wielding your power can seem like a daunting task, but it's essential if you want to get closer to goals like living pain-free, losing weight, or sticking to your healthy-eating goals. Tune into this week's episode for a few easy tips on how to do it!
#31: Hydration - for health, weight loss and athletic performance.
Raise your hand if you know you drink the proper amount of water each day!
How much is the proper amount, you ask? Roughly 0.5 oz to 1 oz of water per pound of body weight per day. (Do you still have your hand raised? Good!)
This amount may seem like a lot, but it’s what our bodies need to perform optimally. Dehydration occurs when you use/lose more fluid than you take in, and your body doesn't have enough water and other fluids to carry out its normal functions.
Episode 31 of my podcast is all about how water can make you feel (and look!) your absolute best, so fill up a water bottle and press play on this week's episode!

I work with my clients a lot on their habits, because it’s one of the best ways to improve your mental and physical health; changing the little things that you do on a daily basis can help you lose or maintain your weight, live pain-free, have healthy relationships, and so much more.
