I’m Lynette Marie, an online fitness coach who also puts my business savvy to work helping other women grow their own coaching businesses. In other words, I’m a champion for women looking to get their lives together, whether that’s with health and wellness or building a thriving business – because you deserve to have it all. In this podcast, I’ll dive into topics related to health, nutrition and fitness, but you’ll also hear stories about my marriage, my spiritual journey and the mindset shifts I’ve made that help me keep it all together. Plus, I’ll share what I’ve learned as a business owner and coach after more than 7 years in the online arena. You’re not a one-size-fits-all person, and neither is this podcast – and I hope you’ll join me as I explore all the ways we can live our best lives, together.

    The 6 Things I Did to MASSIVELY Improve my Anxiety

    The 6 Things I Did to MASSIVELY Improve my Anxiety

    After struggling with anxiety for most of my life, I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder in my early 20s, and I’ve had my fair share of tough times battling it and trying to overcome it. Although I’m not “cured” and still struggle with anxiety sometimes, my life has dramatically improved since practicing and implementing the six things I’m sharing in this episode (please note: I am NOT a doctor, a therapist or any sort of healthcare professional and am simply sharing what’s worked in my own life!).
     
    I’m sharing my journey and the tools that have made it possible for me to improve my mental health in hopes that it helps you feel less alone, especially if you’re struggling or suffering, while also inspiring you to take incredible care of yourself – you deserve it.
     
    In this episode, I cover:


    My personal experience with anxiety and why I’m talking about it [1:25]


    The impact of sleep on mental health (and why you MUST prioritize your sleep) [5:38]


    How self-compassion and being less critical of myself continues to help me reduce my anxiety levels [11:35]


    The importance of being your own “nice manager” [16:15]


    Why going to therapy was a game-changer for me [19:25]

    How to Stop Self Sabotaging

    How to Stop Self Sabotaging

    Spoiler alert: What I’m talking about today could radically change your mindset and make your weight loss journey significantly easier.
     
    This episode is all about a psychological phenomenon known as moral licensing, and even if you’ve heard me talk about it before, you’re going to want to give this one a listen. Why? Well, chances are you’ve experienced the effects of moral licensing before without even realizing it... freaky, right? But you CAN overcome it, and in this episode, I’ll share my strategies for combating this impulse when it rears its ugly head so you can STOP self-sabotaging.
     
    If you’re a note-taker, definitely grab a pen and a notebook before hitting the play button – I have a feeling you’re going to want to reference some of what I’m talking about later.
     
    In this episode, I cover:
     
    Defining moral licensing [3:40]

    Staying mindful of the potential of succumbing to moral licensing when presented with a choice [16:50]
     
    Remaining committed to your health and wellness journey – beyond your appearance and physical results [18:20]

    My Fitness Story

    My Fitness Story

    If you’ve ever wondered how I developed the healthy relationship with food and fitness that I have today, this episode is for you!
     
    I used to struggle with overeating, restricting, binging, overexercising… you name it, I went through it. Thankfully, that’s all part of my past now – but the journey to this healthy, balanced place was messy and had a lot of ups and downs, and that’s what I’m sharing in this episode. While I hope you’ve never battled with your own body like I used to, I know I’m not alone in what I’ve gone through, and one of my goals in sharing my story is to help others feel less alone and know that there IS hope. You CAN make peace with food, exercise and yourself, and even if you don’t believe me, I hope you’ll stick around long enough to let me prove you wrong.
