    379: 3 Ways You're Overeating (But Don't Know It)

    379: 3 Ways You're Overeating (But Don't Know It)

    Are you eating well, but the scale still won't budge?

    I used to think that you're overweight because you overeat. I now know better as I work with many women who struggle with weight loss resistance and eating less is NOT the answer.

    However, for many people, the reason weight is a struggle is actually because they are eating too much. 
    Despite our best intentions, humans have a tendency to underestimate their food consumption.
    Join me as I break down three common reasons you might be overeating without knowing it... and what to do about it.

    Press play and let's go!

    378: Less Drama and More Mama with Pam Howard

    378: Less Drama and More Mama with Pam Howard

    Self-care isn’t selfish and people pleasing is.
    Yep, you read that right.
    And while you might know it’s true intellectually, are you ACTING like it?
    Do you try to appease everyone else at the detriment of your wellbeing?
    Do you worry about your grown up kid’s challenges like they’re your own?
    Do you ‘just want your kids to be happy'?
    If you’re a parent, grandparent, step-parent or are in anyway somewhat responsible for another human beings upbringing, you’ll want to tune into my interview with Pam Howard.
    Pam Howard is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, former K-8 School Counselor, and Master Life Coach for high-achieving moms who want to feel as successful in their parenting as they do in other areas of their lives. She helps them feel calm, confident, and connected to their kids so they can find peace and joy in motherhood.
    In this episode we explore:
    The common beliefs that are keeping you from having a more joyful and close relationship with your kids (such as “I just want them to be happy”
    What it actually looks like to set boundaries in your life
    Why you are the best mom for the job
    The power of the word ‘AND’
    Through her #1 bestselling book, engaging weekly podcasts, practical strategies, and laser-sharp coaching, Pam helps women get unstuck and feel like rockstar moms—while making it all feel like they’re talking with a trusted friend and mentor.
    Her advice has been featured on HuffPost Parents and StepMom Magazine, and clients have described her coaching sessions as “life changing” and “more effective than years of therapy.”
    When she’s not supporting women to show up as the moms they most want to be, you can find her hanging out with her own amazing teens, singing and dancing to Meghan Trainor songs in the kitchen, and savoring squares of 88% organic dark chocolate.

    376: Are Mystery Symptoms Ruining Your Life? With Heather Gray

    376: Are Mystery Symptoms Ruining Your Life? With Heather Gray

    Heather was sick for nearly 2 decades.
    Chronic, migrating pain.
    Rage.
    Suicide attempts.
    Multiple autoimmune diseases.
    And each time she tried to get help, she was given another bandaid solution. Antidepressants. Anger management classes. Pain killers.
    Nothing worked.
    It wasn’t until Heather uncovered the root cause of her mystery symptoms that she was able to get her life back.
    In my conversation with Heather you will…
    discover the two common causes of mystery symptoms that your doctor probably missed
    the one missing link to heal your body for good [even most functional health practitioners skip this step!]
    renew your hope that you, too, can overcome your chronic illness instead of just masking the symptoms
    Heather Gray is on a mission to help others with chronic complex illnesses and mystery symptoms to find relief and reclaim their health. She helps her clients get to the root cause of their symptoms and helps them take control of their health journey.
    She is a Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist and Bioenergetic Practitioner specializing in supporting clients with chronic and complex illnesses such as Lyme disease and Autoimmune diseases.
    With over 27 years of personal experience, she understands the struggles of living with these conditions and is dedicated to helping others find relief.

    375: Coaching Yourself Through Struggle [+ Post Explant Surgery Update]

    375: Coaching Yourself Through Struggle [+ Post Explant Surgery Update]

    Do you feel exhausted? Demotivated? Burnt out? Stuck in indecision? Afraid? Overwhelmed? Stressed? Anxious? Apathetic?

    If you have a pulse, you've probably experienced these feelings at some point in your life. 
    We’re told that challenges are part of the journey. We’re told that challenges are an opportunity to rise. 
    But going through challenges and struggles can downright SUCK.
    If and when you need a bit of coaching to work through struggle and to get back on track, this podcast is for you!
    No one (not even me!) will ever coach you more than you will coach yourself. In this podcast I share how to coach yourself through the challengeing times. Because you and I both know that they are part of the process. 
    I also share an update on my breast implant removal surgery now that I'm 3 weeks post-op.
    I am so grateful you're here.

    If this podcast helps you in anyway, I would love for you to help me spread the message by:
    1. Leaving a review on iTunes or wherever you listen to podcasts,
    2. Share this podcast with a friend
    3. Take a screenshot of the podcast (or a pic of you listening to it!) and share it to social media. Tag me in it so I can celebrate you!

    With so much love,
    Tanja x
