My new muse

I recently came across this podcast wanting to listen to some workout and nutrition inspiration and tips. The podcast with Monica Ellis was soooo amazing! I really felt like I was in my living room with a cup of tea just listening to friends share. The host’s voice is so soothing and calming I can listen forever. I also love the different topics and expert advise from the pros!!! I’ve downloaded so many more episodes, can’t wait to listen to them!!

Fit_mommy_life ,

The podcast had zero to do with the title

I started listening from the beginning episodes and this one I attempted to finish, but couldn’t, was “Why you are failing at your reverse diet” and it literally contained 5 mins of actual info of why Stephanie thought she failed at reversing the other 1hr and 10 mins was nothing but rambling on and on. It bored me and I turned it off.

LOVE this podcast! Full of great info!

I’ve been listening to bikini diaries since I first got an interest in competing. Through my first prep, first show day, and now my first post-show experience, there is an episode to help get me through all of it! I love hearing from bikini pros who have gone through it all and being able to learn from and relate to them.
