    Your Body is Good Right Now with Jennifer Wagner

    Your Body is Good Right Now with Jennifer Wagner

    I loved connecting with Jennifer Wagner during today's episode! She shares her very vulnerable story of losing half of her body weight and realizing that joy & contentment didn't come from losing the weight. Her road to body acceptance was one of trial and error, where she became aware that what is most important for loving the skin you're in is accepting where your body is right NOW. Instead of trying to attain a future version of you, she shares how we can focus on how good our bodies are in this present moment. That appreciation leads to body acceptance and love without limitations. Enjoy her encouraging spirit and transformative story, AND hear all about her new book coming out in January 2022!

    Take Back Your Time with Christy Wright

    Take Back Your Time with Christy Wright

    It was truly an honor to be joined by Christy Wright on today's episode! Christy is a Personal Development Expert with Ramsey Solutions, a Speaker, Host of The Christy Wright Show, Wife, Mom, and now #1 National Best Selling Author of Take Back Your Time: The Guilt-Free Guide to Life Balance. Our conversation could not have come at a better time, as I am in a season of chaos learning to re-prioritize what is important and say "no" to things that are not. And I know I am not alone in that, Sole Sister! Christy walks us through the difference between being busy and being balanced, how to prioritize things in life that bring us peace instead of exhaustion, a practical way to organize your schedule, and how to decide WHAT matters right now. Her wisdom and insight on this topic is unmatched, and I know you will walk away feeling refreshed!

    Mindset Shifts + Unlearning Negative Behaviors with Callan Wall

    Mindset Shifts + Unlearning Negative Behaviors with Callan Wall

    Talk about a free-flowing conversation! Today, I got to sit down with my dear friend, Callan Wall, who is a Dietitian on a mission to rewrite what society says is "healthy" by sharing what true health is. This conversation felt so natural as we dove deep into past patterns in ways of thinking, eating, exercising, restricting, etc. and how we have both found freedom from it. She shares her story of growing up with a performance mindset in both athletics and nutrition, how she decided to make that her line of work, and how she eventually had to make a huge pivot in her industry as she began to realize that certain ways of teaching were very harmful. You are going to love her perspective on nutrition, body acceptance, and food freedom. She brings both a knowledgable and refreshing take to Health at Every Size! 

    ***TRIGGER WARNING: We discuss topics such as restriction, disordered eating, and past behaviors that could be harmful to someone who is currently battling an eating disorder.

    Alex is a family friend of mine with the most genuine and gentle spirit! She shares about her passion for art and how she is pursuing her dream of painting. We talk all about her new marriage to Thomas, their Covid wedding, and finding peace in a relationship. Alex also opens up about her mom's recent battle with cancer, how she overcame it, and how her relationship with her mom evolved because of it. She wisely discusses how life is not a production or a highlight reel, but that there is always good in the end if your hope is in God. I love love loved our conversation, and I know you will be encouraged by her story.
