    Today on the Shape It Up Over 40 podcast, I have a special guest and we are talking about:

    Boundaries are Your Best Friends

    We are going to dive into:

    Why boundaries are important,
    how to figure out what they are
    how to set them

    Welcome to the Shape It Up Over 40 podcast!

    I am your host, Nicole Simonin and I help women over 40 lose weight for the last time. Over the past 20 years, I have developed a weight loss program where there are no pills, no potions, no diets to follow, no insane workouts, no massive cardio…with my background as a professional ballet dancer and teacher, medical degree in Physical Therapy, Personal Trainer and Health Coach …I have boiled weight loss down to doing 3 things….Fueling your body, Moving your body and Managing your mind.

    Does food call out to you?

    Does it whisper like a siren calling to you?

    Are you familiar with the story of sirens calling to pirates?

    The sirens (mermaids in most stories) would sing or call out to the pirates in an attempt to lure them towards shore and to their death by crashing their ship into the shoreline rocks.

    I know very dramatic.

    But this is how I used to feel about doughnuts….white powdered cream-filled donuts!

    I’d resist then give in…resist some more and then really give in.

    I don’t do that anymore. I have learned how to tame my impulse for cravings and I want to teach it to you inside my Crush Your Cravings Masterclass..

    You will …

    Learn how to break the Resist Cycle…

    Understand why your cravings keep winning…

    And how to feel calm and relaxed around tempting foods.

    You Must Sacrifice In Order To Lose Weight

    You Must Sacrifice In Order To Lose Weight

    Do you feel like you must sacrifice in order to lose weight??

    That’s what we are going to talk about today on the Shape It Up Over 40 Podcast!

    Before we dive into that…

    I have been traveling a lot in the past couple weeks and in particular just came back from a Disney trip. Lots of tempting foods…and lots of my FAVORITE FOODS!

    10 years ago a Disney trip would have had me feeling deprived and then saying “screw it! I don’t care! I am going to eat all THE foods!!” But I have mastered my cravings and if you want to feel calm and in control around your favorite foods…AND that does not mean NEVER eating it…I know I thoroughly enjoyed my big donut that I love inside of Epcot.

    Crush Your Cravings Masterclass is happening Wednesday, June 1st at 6PM EST.

    Register at https://endcravings.gr8.com/

    If you are constantly facing down your favorite foods and just feel like you can’t resist…then this masterclass is going to help you.

     

    So let’s get into today’s topic…You Must Sacrifice In Order To Lose Weight

    Today on the Shape It Up Over 40 podcast, I have a special guest and we are talking about:


    How To Create A Mindset To Accomplish Anything


    We are going to dive into:


    Mindset Support,

    Focus

    Resilience towards Goals!


    Welcome to the Shape It Up Over 40 podcast!


    I am your host, Nicole Simonin and I help women over 40 ditch diets and lose weight for the last time.


    I know you want the ultimate goal of permanent weight loss.


    Come get it! You can get that goal when you work with me. Get yourself on my calendar for a discovery call. On your call, tell me why you want that ultimate goal and why you think you can’t have it. Getting one hour of my time is going to shine light on what you are not seeing…what’s getting in your way. We will talk about working together and if you are a “hell, yes!” on the call we will get started right then. If you are a no that’s okay too. Just understand what you are saying “YES” to (achieving permanent weight loss in a simple and doable manner) vs what you are saying “No” to (continuing to spin in frustration, doubt it’ll ever happen and repeating the same patterns over and over). Book your call here https://shapeitupfitness.com/call/ and together let’s create the body you really want to live in!

Extremely Informative

I am new to podcasts and have listened to a few different weight loss ones over the past couple of days. I am so glad I ran across Nicole’s podcasts. Nicole really knows what she is talking about. She looks at weight loss with a totally unique mindset. She stresses that she wants to help people make mind set changes that will help them lose the weight and keep it off. I am super excited to listen to many more of her podcasts. If you have ever struggled with weight loss, you have to listen to her podcasts.

Wow!

What a great podcast with insightful and actionable content. This is what I have been looking for and I love that it’s more than just how to lose weight but gets into the cognitive thinking behind why I might not be my healthiest self and the role my mind plays in that too. Worth listening to!

She's Invincible ,

Great Podcast

Nicole is a no nonsense health coach!! No restrictions, no pills, no diets just real food!!
This podcast is filled with great info to help me reach my fitness goals!! And I can still eat the foods I love!! Thank you Nicole!!
