    Ep. 160, Checking the Box

    Ep. 160, Checking the Box

    This podcast episode is on theme with the last week's podcast, Creating New Habits.

    I discuss the importance of doing things that will help you create new habits, even if it feels like just going through the motions or 'checking the box.'

    Checking the box might not seem like it's working, you might not be seeing real time results when you are going through the motions but it is building the act of following through on the things you said.Even if this simple action like making a drink plan or food plan everyday, even if you don't follow it. Just by making the plan every single day, and setting your intention is helping you build the habit that you are working on. It's just the foundation.I also share how it takes longer than we thought to create new habits and why this consistently in doing one little thing is helping you with your bigger goals.Also, check out @NickWolny on Instagram. Nick is a business and marketing strategist who helps entrepreneurs write quickly and well. He has a membership offer called Camp Wordsmith, but what he's saying right now about creating new systems and habits is on fire!

    Ep. 159, Creating New Habits

    Ep. 159, Creating New Habits

    I'm reading Atomic Habits by James Clear, so good, highly recommend you get it! 

    Going alcohol free (for a day or forever) is a RESULT we want, right? We don’t want to consume alcohol, PERIOD, that’s the end game, I’m not talking about forever, just think for a specified amount of time. This is the habit we'd like to change. 

    However, just focusing on the end game, and declaring ‘I will not drink.’ doesn’t change why you want to drink, your identity as an over-drinker, how to overcome deprivation, or any internal triggers you might have. All of that stuff is still there. 

    Here’s an example of what I’m talking about: My mind used to think: ‘Oh, it’d be fun to have a margarita right now!’ 

    And if I was ‘on a break’ or ‘not drinking’ that day, my mind would then think, ‘well I’m a grown ass woman who works, takes care of her family, pays my bills, if I wanna drink, I can!’ 

    And then I probably did. OR, I would battle with myself about it, white knuckle through it, distract myself from the desire and mind chatter like scrolling, watching tv, eating or something else not super helpful. 

    So, in the end I might not have drank but I didn’t become someone who ‘doesn’t need to drink’ or who doesn’t think about alcohol all the time. 

    But what I'm explaining to you in this week's episode will help you embody the habits of someone who doesn't over-drink. 

    YOU DO NOT WANT TO SKIP THIS EPISODE. 

    I don’t identify as a drinker. I don’t think it would be fun, I don’t think it would be a solution to any problem or make any situation better. 

    So, if you want to change who you are and actually become a non over-drinker (whatever that means for you) then the actual work needs to happen is how you see yourself, how you identify yourself. 

    Tune in and learn how.

    Ep. 158, Momentum

    Ep. 158, Momentum

    I'm enjoying some fun momentum towards my goals for 2022. 

    My definition of momentum is consistent movement that propels you closer to where you want to go. 

    That means no stopping and starting over and over again.

    That has the opposite effect of momentum. 

    Gaining momentum while you are energized and excited to make some changes or achieve your goals at the beginning of the year is super fun, that's where I am right now and I want to take advantage of it. 

    Because let's be honest, some times it takes extra effort and feels extra hard to move the needle. 

    But, when you have momentum on your side, it doesn't feel like that. 

    Tune in and listen to some things that I did at the start of the year to build and gain momentum towards my goals. 

    Also, here are the 10 questions I discussed in the podcast. Do them! 

    Thanks Kim Arrington for sharing these with me and to @Nedratawwab for writing them!

     

    10 Questions to Process Before You Wrap Up 2021:
    1. What dod 2021 teach me about myself?

    2. Who showed up for me, and how can I nurture those relationships?

    3. What do I need to accept about myself and the other people in my life?

    4. How did I cope with uncomfortable feelings?

    5. How can I better manage my reaction to my feelings?

    6. In what ways will I take better care of myself in 2022?

    7. What has been a barrier to me completing my goals, and how will I remove the barrier in 2022?

    8. What limiting beliefs do I need to release?

    9. What do I need to practice doing more or less of?

    10. What one boundary do I need to implement to improve my peace in 2022?

    Ep. 157, Beyond What's Possible

    Ep. 157, Beyond What's Possible

    The end of 2021 prompts me to decide on a word of the year for 2022. 

    My word is Beyond. 

    This episode discusses how I came to this word and why I think having a word of the year is so impactful and powerful. 

    What is Beyond what you think is possible right now? 

    Maybe it's permanently stopping over-drinking, improving a difficult relationship, or finding a dream job. 

    Tune in and see how you can find some limiting beliefs on what you think is possible and go BEYOND that. 

    Beyond what's possible helps you drop some limiting beliefs so that you can be open to new ones.

    Ep. 156, If Only....

    Ep. 156, If Only....

    If only my partner wouldn't drink... 

    If only I could get out of the house more.. 

    If only I didn't live alone.. 

    If only it wasn't the holidays.. 

    If only my work wasn't so stressful... 

    If only I had more accountability.. 

    If only everyone would comply and do what I need them to do.. then I could drink less. 

    Sound familiar? 

    When you have these thoughts and allow them you are giving away your own power. 

    This is self-abdicating.

    Self abdicating is making other things, people, events responsible for what you do or don't do. 

    You want to say NO to self-abdicating and say YES to self-advocating. 

    Self-advocating is saying YES to you and your goals and supporting yourself in those efforts. 

    Tune in so you can recognize if you have a case of 'If Only's' and how to turn that power back to you and change your relationship with alcohol.

    Ep. 155, Harms of Perfectionism with Corey Williams

    Ep. 155, Harms of Perfectionism with Corey Williams

    I have my friend and DEI consultant, Corey Williams back on the podcast today as we unravel the premise of Perfectionism.

    We explore grammar, language, and systems that have upheld people of power and keep oppression alive in our society.

    Calling out or judging people, colleagues, friends, strangers, or family for grammar 'errors' or 'improper sentence structure' or how they speak keeps us locked in a way of being that feels restrictive and hard.

    And when we feel that way, we tend to want to escape like, drink, eat, and avoid. And it prevents us from developing relationships, learning new ideas, and seeing a bigger, more colorful human existence.

    When we feel righteous or inclined to point out how other people are wrong.. it implies that we know more than the other person or that we are better than them.

    And there is no morality in someone who 'knows' and uses proper English or abides by a classic and typical way of being (which is also known as the mid-upper class, cis (straight) white way).

    We discuss ways to notice or how you can identify within yourself if you are doing this and how to shift it so you can experience a richer more interesting and compassionate way of life that will open your brain to learning more and up-leveling your life in ways you can't even understand right now.

    When I get emails or messages about improper grammar or spelling mistakes my heart sinks because I know that your attention to those details is distracting you from getting the message that could actually help you drink less and do more in your life.

    So, this is for you if you call yourself a grammar nazi (which we really need to drop that term, btw), if you pride yourself on never making a spelling mistake, or if you have said, 'If there is an improper use of their/they're, I'm out, you've lost me..' and so on.. please open your mind to hearing the message here, and I promise you, we probably made a lot of mistakes in this conversation and we are all into learning and growing from it.

    One more thing.. unless you are directly asked to edit someone's words or language, STOP DOING IT.

    Perfectionism keeps us all small. And it's rooted in what we think other people will think of us if we 'don't do it right' and worrying about what other people think.. does not help you move forward, it keeps you stuck.

    Being willing to be wrong, make mistakes, and put yourself out there will help you live an exciting and fulfilling life, one that you don't need to escape from with alcohol.

Great Podcast

I do not have a problem with alcohol, I am working on weight loss and Angela’s information is is so relatability for me. Especially love to hear her talk about her personal adventures like her stay in the tiny home and hiking in Alaska. She is great.

LaurieMN ,

SO MUCH is possible

I loved episode 148- Congratulations Steph Tell! This is another perfect example of what can happen when the concepts that Angela teaches are put into practice. I LOVE the concept that embracing and acknowledging being nervous or scared really can mean we then know that we are living. The program is named beautifully: Stop Overdrinking and Start Living.

Max Gamer ,

The best podcast for women that want to stop overdrinking!!

Angela is so very real and transparent! She does not shy away from any topic and the podcasts are always extremely personal and informative! She always makes it a point (in one way or another) to say that we have the power to have the life that we want! She has truly changed my life!!
