    Your Second Act -- Diane's Story

    Have you been going through life and not happy where it is taking you? My guest today didn't either, so she decided to change the trajectory and take control!
    Diane Moca started her career in journalism. She loved all of the opportunities that it brought her. Then she had her first child and things changed. Now, Diane wanted to be a present mom while also having her career. So she decided to go back to work.
    In this time she realized the lack of affordable and reliable child care for women who are in the workforce. That's when she got an idea to help those women out. So Diane started MomSub!
    Diane's goal at MomSub is to provide moms with help with finding child care by reducing the stress, guilt, and self criticism that goes into finding a reliable source.
    We are talking about:
    How Diane created MomSubThe process of finding child care on MomSubHow companies are starting to offer child care benefits

    Unconditional Love -- Love Notes From Mom

    Unconditional Love -- Love Notes From Mom

    Let's talk about love!
    There are all different kinds of love. But one of the most important ones is self love. In today's episode I am talking about how you need to love yourself unconditionally.
    Something that I do is create love notes for myself. It's a great way to give yourself positive affirmations. For you, I have created Love Notes with an emphasis on YOU! If you would like your own Love Notes - you can find them HERE!
    Our upbringing and our relationships with our parents can leave us feeling unfulfilled. Your emotional needs may not have been met to the fullest.
    If you feel that you need to work on your inner child, here are some books that I recommend:
    Lindsay Gibson's "The Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents"
    Jonice Webb "Running on Empty"

    Diet Culture

    Diet Culture

    Today's episode came to me in the middle of the night (yes literally!) and I had to share it with you. I want to talk about diet culture and some of the pressures that you can have from society around diets.
    The number one thing I want you to take away from this episode is the need for self love! The love you have for yourself needs to be complete and total unconditional love. Even though the scale might not be the number you want or your favorite pair of pants don't fit like they use to, the most important thing to remember is to love yourself unconditionally.
    In my coaching, I talk about health at every size with my clients. Because health is not just the number on the scale, it is also how you feel inside. Are you able to take your dog on a walk? Are you able to play with your kids or grandkids? Health is about so much more than the physical appearance.
    When it comes to food, I don't cancel anything out. I believe in balance and lifiving life! However, I do have an acronym for "DIET" that I use every day - Do I Eat This? I ask myself how will it make me feel? This is something that has helped me in my personal journey!
    Do you want more episodes to review for more self love? Check these out:
    Episode 36- Becoming Resilient
    Episode 69- Should there be suffering?
    Episode 71- Self-Loathing
    Episode 72- Deciphering Data

    Women's Health

    Women's Health

    Today I want to share with you a little into on women's health. I have some episodes coming up that are going to dive deeper into these topic. So I wanted to get us ready for that!
    Recently, I watched the Barbie movie and it really triggered something in me that I wanted to share. There is a speech in the movie that highlights the expectations that we have as women.
    These expectations may not be fair but they are what we face daily. And it is important to learn how to move past them as a woman.
    I am also excited to share some stories that YOU all have shared with me about your personal health journeys!
    If you want more information on women's health, take a listen to these previous episodes!
    Episode 17 - It's Not You, It's Your Hormones
    Episode 18 - Sleep -- How to Get the Rest You and Your Body Needs
    Episode 19 - 2, 4, 6, EAT: Intermittent Fasting, Simplified

Moms Overcoming Overwhelm ,

Ditch the unrealistic expectations and mom guilt - it’s time to slow down and simplify!

Stephanie is not only a wealth of knowledge about how to slow down and simplify, but she is a calm, yet firm presence reminding me of what truly matters. When I’m tempted to compare myself to other moms who presumably “have it all together”, I’m reminded of Stephanie’s wonderful acronym for SLOW - Simply Look Only Within. I was recently a guest on the Slow Living Podcast and it was such a pleasure speaking to a like-minded (and like-hearted) woman who is also on a mission to help moms ditch perfectionism and unrealistic expectations. Thank you Steph for all you do! Sincerely, Emily from the Moms Overcoming Overwhelm Podcast

Grateful

I am so grateful to Steph! I love her podcast, her common sense and easy flow to life. I’ve listened to her for over a year now and have worked with her one on one. She gave me great insight to some hiccups I had about my day. Please slow down and listen. You won’t regret it.

Stick to recipes

Recipes are useful…the life advice, not so much. Seems like just another person trying to be some sort of “life coach” and make a buck online. Tried a few episodes because I like the cookbooks…a lot of fluff and regurgitated self help. Stick to cookbooks!
