    How Much, First. What, Second.

    How Much, First. What, Second.

    What you eat doesn't matter that much in the beginning of your weight loss. In this episode, I'll share with you what to focus on FIRST, without changing a thing about what you're currently eating.

    Decide

    Decide

    If you feel stuck right now, if you feel like you're in a life rut, if you feel like you know what you need to do to hit your goals but you can't seem to make yourself DO any of it… It's likely because you're letting your past write the story of your future.
     
    Every misstep, every broken promise, every time you said you were going to get your sh*t together and then stumbled even further back plays like a broken record in your head stopping you from being consistent.
     
    Truth time?
     
    The ONLY thing that will stop you from hitting November's goals, is holding on to October's mistakes. 
     
    Rewrite who you are and who you are becoming. 
     
    Today, I'll tell you the recipe that keeps so many women stuck in their weight loss and in their life, and the ONLY thing that'll help you drop the old stories of yourself in order to busy achieving the big goals, you're SO capable of achieving.

    The Hidden Costs to Your Weight Loss Goal

    The Hidden Costs to Your Weight Loss Goal

    This is the time of year you typically start thinking about the goals you want to hit in the New Year. Am I right?
    The New Year is so close, but far enough away that you can day dream about how next year will be soooo different…
    But today on Force of Habit, I want to talk about THIS year's goals, and why you might be struggling to hit them.
    There's another side to goals that a lot of women don't think about, and it's the costs. The price you have to pay (or what you have to give up) in order to actually hit the goal.
    It's easy to just think about what you GET when you hit the goal or what you have to DO to hit a goal, but the hidden costs are usually the reason so many people don't see their goals through… 
    So today on the podcast, I want to talk about what those hidden costs are, and how not knowing what they are can hurt your weight loss goals.
    You'll find it REALLY valuable, (and it's just 10 minutes - win win)!

    Satiety: Foods That Help You Feel Full Without Overeating

    Satiety: Foods That Help You Feel Full Without Overeating

    Let's keep it real… A lot of women struggle to be consistent with weight loss because they struggle with hunger. 
     
    Whether it's because they're TOO hungry all the time, or they never experience true hunger because they're constantly snacking and grazing, finding the balance can be difficult if you've never taken time to get in touch with it.
    Can you relate?
     
    If so, today on the podcast I want to talk about satiety and foods that make you feel full and satisfied without overeating (and also, how  big “no-no's foods” help you lose MORE weight)

    I think you'll find it super valuable!

    Becoming Your Future Self

    Becoming Your Future Self

    The last few months have been a little crazy for me. We moved into our first home, and chaos ensued. Adulting… amiright? 
    I'd been feeling like I hadn't been productive… Lots of avoiding, lots of days ending like I didn't do the things I really needed or wanted to do, sprinkle in some anxiety and you've got the perfect recipe for overwhelm 👩🏽‍🍳

    Can you relate?
     
    If so, today on the podcast I'm taking you through the exercise I did this weekend (and one that I do often, and teach in SHEtrition) when I feel like I'm not being the person I want to be. When I need to check in with my future self and realign with her, so that I can hit the goals I know that I'm capable of. 

    If anything I'm saying is hitting home for you, I think you'd find it really, really valuable. 
     
    I'll walk you through it step-by-step so that you can easily replicate it and do it yourself today!
