    60. Don't Let Your Body Run Out of Gas + Signs Your Body's Gas Tank Is Running On Empty

    Have you ever pulled into the gas station right as the “empty” light pops on your dashboard? It’s a feeling of panic and relief all at the same time. Am I right?

    We would never let it happen to our cars, but we let it happen to our bodies all the time; why is that?

    Before we talk about filling our tank, we need to get a better understanding of what it means to leave our bodies running on empty.

    Let's talk about: 


    How to tell if your body is running on empty. 
    Why we don't want to continue to put bandaids on the situation. 
    Getting to the root of your concerns. 
    Filling up your tank.

    59. Fitting Healthy Into Your Current Lifestyle Without Overhauling It All

    59. Fitting Healthy Into Your Current Lifestyle Without Overhauling It All

    “I don’t have time”

    How often do you find yourself saying that when someone tells you that you need to work out, you need to meal prep or you need to cook for yourself?

    Building a healthy lifestyle is often misconstrued as “needs to be a brand new lifestyle.” In reality, it should be looked at more as “how do we adjust our current habits to healthier habits” and “how does this work with my lifestyle?”

    Today on the podcast we break down: 


    Incorporating healthier eating habits into your current life. 
    How movement fits into your life
    Building a routine, one habit at a time. 

    Jump-Start To Eating Healthy

    Instead of getting overwhelmed with where to start when adjusting your eating habits, Jump-Start to Eating Healthy is here to help you get started. Together we will make a meal plan that considers your family and dietary needs.

    As you implement the meal plan, I will continue to support you for two additional weeks to help answer questions, brainstorm ideas, and deal with unexpected situations.

    Think of it as having a nutrition coach in your pocket as you start healthy eating habits.

    57. What To Cook For Dinner - Building Your Go-To Meal List

    57. What To Cook For Dinner - Building Your Go-To Meal List

    As you shift your nutrition and eating habits, this will most likely mean a shift in the amount of food needed to be cooked at home. 

    It's not bad, but knowing what goes into your food will be an essential part of eating healthier. 

    When figuring out what to make, it's important to have a list of Go-To Meals. Meals that: 


    No one argues about
    Are easy to make
    It can be made quickly
    Meet your dietary needs
    You know how it will turn out. 

    Today on the podcast, we talk about how to make your list of go-to meals, and I share my list of go-to meals and how we adjust them from week to week. 

    When you finish making your go-to meal list, send it to me. I love to expand on recipes and would love to know more about what you love to cook.

    56. Going Out To Eat When You're Trying To Stick To A Healthy Eating Meal Plan

    One of the first things people tend to avoid when eating healthier is going to a restaurant. It doesn't always end well and often leads to more anxiety than it's worth. 

    Today on the podcast, we'll go over a few ways to enjoy your favorite food while focusing on a healthier diet. 

    We talk about: 


    How to plan for your meal. 
    What to do if you want to eat it all. 
    Finding balance. 
    Getting back on track. 

    Going out to eat shouldn't be avoided; it should be a time to celebrate and enjoy a meal with friends or family. It's one meal out of 21 a week. A lot can be done to make it delicious and healthy.

    55. I Failed At My 2022 Goals - Learn From My Mistakes As You Set Your 2023 Goals

    When I look back on 2022, it was a year of lessons. 

    Good ones and hard ones. New Year's resolutions come with a feeling of excitement. It's a fresh start in the day-to-day world that we live in. However, as you see people preaching, "set your resolutions" or "what are your goals," it's important to reflect back on the year prior. What worked and what didn't? 

    In today's podcast episode:


    I am reflecting on the goals I missed and the lessons I learned. 
    We talk about my word for 2023. 
    Most importantly, I'm sharing my take on how YOU can learn from my failures. 

    We touch a little bit on goals throughout the episode, but to dig more into setting achievable goals, don't miss episode 12.
