    196: How to Stop Self Sabotaging Your Weight Loss

    196: How to Stop Self Sabotaging Your Weight Loss

    “What's getting in your way? Where are you stuck?” Sure, you can answer 'hormones' or 'my spouse' or 'my busy schedule'. But if you were to answer this honestly, you would say 'myself'.
    And then you might think you need more willpower or discipline. Or motivation. Or that something is wrong with you.
    After all, if you WANT it so badly, so why do you keep slipping off plan when you start to lose some weight? Or why do you start each day with great intentions but end up face first in the ice cream after dinner?
    Enter self sabotage (no applause required ;)
    Take a deep breath. It's normal. You're not broken. You're human. 
    Friend, let's have a chat about ending self sabotage so that you can finally have the body and life you want... and deserve.

    195: A Powerful Tool To Change Your Self Talk

    195: A Powerful Tool To Change Your Self Talk

    We all have an inner voice, an ongoing narrative that comments on what we are doing and drives us to act in certain ways.

    That voice can be your worst critic- it can keep you playing small, it can fight for your excuses, and it can be downright mean. 

    Or, that voice can be your greatest ally.
    How you talk to yourself matters, a lot. But if you've practiced negative self talk for years, or decades, change it is no easy task. 

    Join me today as I share a powerful tool to say good-bye to your inner mean-girl and to adopt a more positive, helpful conversation.

    194: The Reasons You Have Excuses

    194: The Reasons You Have Excuses

    Now's not the right time.
    I'll start when the kids go back to school.
    Things are too stressful right now.
    There's too many other things competing for my focus- I can't commit to my health right now. 
    Delay. Delay. Delay.

    The best excuses are REAL. Life might be stressful. Your house might be full of visitors. You might be out of routine. You might be in between jobs. Maybe you are struggling in your relationships.

    But these are not usually the real reasons we don't start, or do the things we know we could do to be healthier and happier. And until we get clear on what those reasons are, its very hard to overcome them.

    Friend, let's have an honest conversation about the REAL reason you are not getting started.

    192: She Lost Her Weight For the Last Time

    192: She Lost Her Weight For the Last Time

    Imagine this...
    For several months (or even years), you put in the work: you workout, you track your food, you commit to 'clean eating' (or whole foods, keto, vegan, low fat, etc.)…
    You do your best.
    Yet, the results you so desperately want seem like a pipedream away :(
    I understand it’s downright depressing. It makes you even want to give up.
    And you wonder... how is this different?
    Most women I work with have been dieting for years, decades. And they wonder, how will this be different?
    And to be perfectly honest, I have a tough time explaining how Fit + Vibrant Over 50 is different than Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Keto, Noom, Ideal Protein, Herbalife, etc. etc. 
    It's like asking how an trip to Hawaii 🌺 is different than an elephant. There's more differences than there are similarities.
    This podcast is a recording of an interview I did with Karen, a member of Fit + Vibrant Over 50. If you're wondering about the program, Karen does a great job sharing how this time things ARE different. And if you're not at all interested in the program, she shares some big takeaways that has helped her lose 115 pounds... for the last time.

    191: How Do I Stop Eating When I'm Not Actually Hungry?

    191: How Do I Stop Eating When I'm Not Actually Hungry?

    Eat when you're hungry. Stop when you're satiated.

    Sounds sooooo simple. And it is... but simple doesn't mean easy. 

    "I don't know what it feels like to be hungry?"
    "How do I know if I'm hungry or bored?"
    "How can I curb hunger?"
    "I eat when I'm not hungry... how can I stop?"

    I've been getting a lot of questions about hunger, and this episode is dedicated to answering YOUR questions! 

    Friend, grab your ear buds and press play and let's talk about HUNGER.

Great podcast for your mind & body

Found this podcast during the COVID 19 pandemic, and it’s like a breath of fresh air & a hug from a friend. Tanja’s sweet & enduring personality & no nonsense approach to weightloss & self care has really helped me thru this difficult time. Doing the hard work now so I can enjoy the life I’ve always wanted— free from food/body obsession & free from the struggle— it’s gonna be worth it! Only wish I was closer to west Canada so I could visit in person. Thank you Tanja for being a voice of positivity & encouragement for me as I work on myself!
