    231: Stop Stress Eating

    Ever find yourself standing in the pantry or mindlessly eating leftover cold pizza, or peanut butter straight from the tub when you're stressed?
    If so, you’re not alone. It’s frustrating, and the answer is not found in a diet plan, or with the well-intended advice to have a cup of tea instead. 
    “O…. I just have tea instead of cold leftover pizza and Oreo cookies… I never knew!” said no one ever.

    Join me for some real talk about STRESS EATING. Why we do it, and most importantly, what to do to STOP the cycle.

    Press play and let's go!

    229: Am I Hungry?

    229: Am I Hungry?

    Eat when you're hungry, stop when you're satiated.

    Sounds simple enough, but simple isn't always easy, especially if you have a history of dieting and disordered eating patterns. 

    For many women, after outsourcing their food choices to meal plans and diets, listening to the body's signals can be challenging. Sure, it's easy to identify when you're ravenous, and stuffed, but what about the less extreme feelings of hunger and satiety?
    And on this week's podcast, we're talking all about HUNGER. 

    💕How to actually tell if you're hungry
    💕How to tell if you've had enough
    💕Ninja tips and mindset shifts to actually start listening to your body

    228: Stay Motivated + Consistent with PULL Goals

    228: Stay Motivated + Consistent with PULL Goals

    We're going back to the archives and releasing a past podcast episode on a very important topic: how to set inspiring goals.
    You've probably heard that setting goals is important... but chances are, you're not creating goals that inspire consistent action.

    We are either motivated to move way from something we don't want (a push goals) or toward something we do want (a pull goal).

    Both types of goals have their utility, but for long-term success, whether it's in weight loss, your health, business, finances or relationships, we want more PULL goals. 
    The action steps might be the same, but the feeling is so much different.
    In this podcast you'll learn:
    1. What push goals and pull goals look like (lots of examples)
    2. WHY we want pull goals, and
    3. How to shift your perspective and move forward with more motivation, excitement and consistency with pull goals

    227: How to Have the Courage to Follow Your Dreams (and to Stop Holding Yourself Back)

    227: How to Have the Courage to Follow Your Dreams (and to Stop Holding Yourself Back)

    Bronnie Ware, an Australian nurse who spent several years caring for patients during the last 12 weeks of their lives,  says the #1 regret of the dying is "I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me." She adds "When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made."
    The dictionary definition of courage is "mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.". Courage isn't just reserved for risking your life to save another, or to leave a high paying job to start your own business, or to leave a toxic but secure long-term relationship. Courage can mean speaking up for yourself, feeling your emotions without numbing out with food, asking for help or deciding it's time to try again to start taking care of your body.
    And on this week's podcast, we're talking about courage. How to have more courage, more confidence to pursue your dreams, to overcome fear and to fully LIVE your life.

So Glad I Found Tanja!

Came across this podcast while searching for health, wellness, and practical weight loss guidance. I did not realize until I’d listened to a few episodes that she’s catering to the 50+ age population. I am 35, and still find her to be so authentic and encouraging, always full of practical tips and thoughts! Also, I don’t know what it is, but Tanja genuinely sounds like she is smiling as she speaks. Maybe she is! I love it. I can honestly say that I feel happier and calmer after listening to every episode.

Awesome, motivational podcast!

Love listening to Tanja and all of her guests.
Just the motivation, information, inspiration I need daily to navigate through my forties!! Realizing that being fit and vibrant isn’t as easy as it used to be.
Fit and vibrant you gets my day off to a good start every time I listen !!! Such great points, tips and mostly understanding!!

My favorite podcast

I found Tanja when I was looking for to help me navigate losing weight and loving my body at the same time. I found that episode (check out episode #141) but keep listening because every episode contributes to that goal. Her content just happens to be the crossroads of so many things I’ve been awakened to over the last couple of years and want to keep learning and mastering so it’s really my favorite podcast.
