    Ep 47 | Tools to Help You Ditch Diet Culture with Cassie Riley Part 1

    Ep 47 | Tools to Help You Ditch Diet Culture with Cassie Riley Part 1
    In this episode of the She Finds Joy podcast, Kim speaks with Cassie Riley. Cassie is a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach who works with clients by helping them reach their specific wellness goals through healthy meal plans, nutritious food choices, and movement. She helps them create positive behavior change through sustainable health habits that go deeper than just diet and exercise alone. 
     
    How many times in your life have you tried to lose weight using restrictive diets such as keto, Weight Watchers, the no-carb diet, and so on? How many times have you told yourself, “I’ll start again on Monday?” How many Januarys are you going to restrict yourself from carbs and cookies? For the majority of the people, this never works. Fad diets and diet culture deliver false promises and show us testimonials of former clients on Day 28, but they don’t talk about what happened on Day 31. 
     
    In this episode, Kim and Cassie discuss why women need to do the inner work of understanding and nurturing our bodies and how to get off the struggle bus when it comes to achieving our wellness goals. Cassie's approach is centered around not counting calories, not stepping on a scale daily, and not restricting ourselves from certain food groups. Instead, she offers us a healthy, feel-good solution to achieving our optimal health and wellness goals. She explains why we must stop utilizing a “one-size-fits-all” approach when trying to lose weight and instead create a sustainable lifestyle that truly fuels us.
    Tune in to learn more about: 

    Why it’s important to dissociate diet with body image and body size.Why diet culture and fad diets are terrible for you and why they don’t work. Why cutting out entire food groups and restricting yourself leads to future weight gain and feelings of guilt, shame, and depression.What companies and culture do to trick you into thinking certain food is healthy.The simple formula for creating nutrient-rich, balanced meals that maintain blood sugar levels and keep you satisfied.The protein - healthy fats - fiber formula that will blow your mind when it comes to meal planning and staying satiated.Why building lifelong sustainable healthy habits is possible without all of the guilt and the strict rules. A simple plan for achieving your wellness goals.  
    “Are you truly building lifelong, sustainable health habits or are you finding a quick fix diet for 30 days, and on Day 31, you run out to grab a box of doughnuts because you’ve completely restricted yourself for the last month? This approach doesn’t work.” - Cassie Riley

    Releasing People-Pleasing with Angela Robeck

    Releasing People-Pleasing with Angela Robeck

    Ep 46 | Angela Robeck: Releasing People-Pleasing
    Angela Kelly Robeck is well versed in teaching and school leadership, having been a teacher for over 15 years and a school principal for six years before moving into a district-level position. 
    She is a certified coach of The Life Coach School and completed the life coaching program from Martha Beck International, and is the founder of Angela Kelly Coaching. She specializes in helping leaders navigate the job demands to lead with confidence while also having a life outside of their jobs.  
    In this episode, Angela explains why it’s crucial for us as mothers to stop doing all the crap we hate and start doing the things that bring us joy. She discusses why we should create our definition of what we believe a good mom is, and not focus on the definition society has fed us. She asks the important question, “Do you want to be the mom who is modeling to her children what it looks like to enjoy being a mother? Or do you want to model motherhood that is stressful and exhausting, where you are doing things out of obligation rather than because you want to?”
     
    What You’ll Learn From This Episode:
    Why we have to stop the people-pleasing mentality. Why our thoughts create our emotions, which cause our results. How you can self-check your thoughts when we are telling ourselves lies. Why it’s not that you are overwhelmed—it’s that you are underwhelmed.Why you should stop doing the tasks that don’t make you feel good and do the ones you enjoy. Why, as mothers, we must begin to invest money, time, and effort into ourselves starting now! 
    “As women, we should value our own opinion, equally or greater than we value the opinions of others.” - Angela Robeck

    About Tara
    Tara Martin is an educator, author, leader, and hugger. Teaching is hands down her purpose in life, next to being a mom! She considers herself an instructional coach by default because leading by inquiry tends to bleed over into any role she has had the honor to serve. 
    One of my favorite things about Tara is she thrives on change and refuses to settle for the status quo.

Cheerful In All Weathers ,

Your Thoughts are Powerful

I'm sorry you had that stinging experience you expressed in this podcast. It is sad that some women have to put other women down to build themselves up. And, it doesn't build themselves up. It demonstrates more about their negativity. I support you and your work! Keep it up!
