    Mantra’s and mindsets

    Mantra’s and mindsets

    This week we're talking about mindset, particularly challenging your thoughts by using positive affirmations and mantras. I'll dive deep in to how our default thought patterns and internal dialogue can sometimes be very negative. I hope this episode will give you some hope to believe change is possible, because even though we may not have control over the thoughts our brains are telling us, we can have 100%  control and influence on how we respond them.

    What exercises should you be doing for fat loss

    What exercises should you be doing for fat loss

    If you want to lose weight,  you may be wondering how much you should be exercising and what exercises you need to do to lose weight.

    Losing weight is all about being in calorie deficit, so it's understandable you think you need to exercise to lose weight as you'll burn more calories right? Whilst there is some truth to that it's more complex than you might think. There's a lot to unpack this week,  so in this episode I'll be discussing what effect exercise has on your ability to lose weight, what exercises to do and most importantly when is the right time to include it.

    Get comfortable being uncomfortable

    Get comfortable being uncomfortable

    This week I thought I'd talk you about how to get comfortable, with being uncomfortable.
    Embracing discomfort definitely won't be pleasant but it's necessary if you want to experience personal growth.
    The thing is If you always stay in your comfort zone and avoid situations where you might fail or be uncomfortable, then there is little way for you to grow as an individual.

    A quote which I love and I have hanging on my wall is " fail faster" because it reminds me everyday that instead of striving to be perfect, to fail fast and often because you can achieve so much more by just getting started, giving it ago, being okay with failure and being uncomfortable.

    How to keep going when the goal feels too far away

    How to keep going when the goal feels too far away

    In this episode I share 4 key ways I keep going when my goals feel so far away! I talk a lot about not being perfect and why it's important to fail faster but this week I want to get a little more personal. The crux of it is; We don’t want to put our lives on hold until we reach a certain goal, because life is happening NOW, and the future is never a given. It's so important to focus on the present and put values, before beauty.

    I'll be talking about why this matters so much to me and how I create meaning in today.
    You can work towards being an improved version of yourself, but ultimately to keep yourself going it boils down to having contentment, joy and appreciation for today.
    We have to start living and be grateful for today before it’s too late.

    Gateway habits to speed up fat loss

    My definition of “gateway habits” are small, easy habits that have a HUGE knock on affect to other behaviour.
    They’re like gateway drugs. Once you start, the harder stuff is the next step (although unlike taking drugs gateway habits make way for POSITIVE behaviour!!)

    How Kezia lost 50 lbs while spending less time and effort cooking!

    How Kezia lost 50 lbs while spending less time and effort cooking!

    Kezia lost 50 lbs (and counting) while spending less time in the kitchen and making her system easy.
    Here’s what she said:
    “in January when the doors were open for LWP I wasn't quite ready to jump in, I felt like I had all of the knowledge and understanding and I could do it on my own. So I decided to give myself some time to try it alone. Alas, I was able to eat the right things but then weekends would come and my consistency would fly out the window. So here I am signed up for LWP this round and already just investing the money in it is giving me the push I need to practice my consistency and reach my goals!” (July 2021)
    Since then she’s focused on layering habits like her home habit, then weekends, then eating out.
    It’s crazy what can happen with small, consistent action and learning to trust yourself again.
    If you want to experience this for YOUR weight loss, then join Lean with Plants!
    We’re open for enrolment very soon.

Love this podcast

This is my absolutely favorite podcast! Listening to Chelsea is like listening to a friend. She is kind and knowledgeable and has really helped me lose weight after it seemed like everything else failed.

Chelsea's Brilliant!

Chelsea and her Lean With Plants Podcast are phenomenal! She's so real, honest, and transparent. Even if you aren't trying to lose weight as a Vegan, she will give you excellent research, facts, and life experience to help you live a true life in weight loss or even in life itself! I am addicted to her Podcast and anything she talks or teaches about! Listen to a couple of titles that interest you. She is especially well versed on habits and following through, especially on a Vegan Weight Loss Life.
Chelsea's the best!! You will enrich your life listening to these Podcasts. She's not an influencer with a perfect image. She makes mistakes and shares it with us. She's human just like us.
Besides, you'll LOVE listening to her New Zealand accent! :)
