    Ep. 160 The Power of our thoughts with Nicole Sachs

    Ep. 160 The Power of our thoughts with Nicole Sachs

    Nicole Sachs, LCSW is a speaker, writer, podcaster and psychotherapist who has dedicated her work and her practice to the treatment of emotional and physical chronic pain, symptoms, syndromes, and conditions. She is the author of the book The Meaning of Truth, and the online courses FREEDOM FROM CHRONIC PAIN and FREEDOM FROM AN ANXIOUS LIFE. Her brand, The Cure for Chronic Pain, includes a Website, Podcast and YouTube Channel. She holds faculty positions at The Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, 1440 Multiversity, and The Center for Living Retreat Center. Nicole's personal experience with Dr. John Sarno as well as work with thousands of people around the world have shaped and evolved her theories, which serve to teach those suffering how to heal themselves completely with no medication or surgery. 
    We start off this episode with Nicole sharing her story of a life altering diagnosis she received at age 19.  Her doctors shattered her hopes and dreams for the future when they told her how her life would need to look in order for her to be “safe”. Nicole accepted this diagnosis for a while but began to have thoughts that maybe she could find a way to have a different life than the one she was currently living.  She ran across the work of Dr. Sarno which inspired her journey to learn more about mind body medicine and essentially changed the trajectory of her life. 
    Nicole and Kari move into the discussion of repressing our emotions-why we do it and how to begin the process of fighting against the repression.  Nicole shares that we do not choose to repress our emotions…..our brain and our nervous system choose for us. The big idea of mind body medicine is if we repress our emotions, those feelings will manifest themselves physically. Nicole shares that in order to begin the process of not repressing emotion you have to have awareness and you have to know that help is available to you.
    We wrap this episode with Nicole sharing about resources available to help you through the journey of mind body medicine.

    158. Lift to Get Lean with Kylie Larson

    158. Lift to Get Lean with Kylie Larson

    Kylie Larson is a mom, wife, entrepreneur and coach. In a former life she was in corporate America, unsure of herself and lost, looking for something more. In 2008 she completed her first yoga teacher certification and that was the catalyst to change her life's path. 
    Since that time she has immersed herself into fitness, nutrition and personal development coaching and developed her signature program Lift to Get Lean which focuses on strength training, macronutrient tracking and mindset. After learning a lot of lessons the hard way, over-training, under-eating and not seeing results, she has found a sustainable method of reaching goals that works. And it's not just about what you eat and how you train, it's about your daily habits and the words you say to yourself. This is the most important piece of the puzzle. 
    Her undergraduate degree in marketing is from Texas Christian University and she is certified through Precision Nutrition, both Level 1 and Level 2 courses. She has been working with clients on nutrition since 2015 and changed hundreds of lives helping women become more confident in their bodies and free around food. 
    This episode kicks off with Kylie sharing her journey up to this point with fitness, nutrition, and weight lifting.  Kylie shares with Julie how she achieved a balance with fitness and nutrition and that is what she loves to share with her audience.
    Kylie and Julie discuss the magic of strength training. Strength training is what allows you to shape and sculpt your body to look how you want.  Kylie debunks the myth of metabolism and age being related.
    Kylie and Julie discuss the importance of fueling your body properly and how low calorie diets are not the answer!  Kylie breaks down the basics of macronutrients and how it is a different mentality toward nutrition (a healthier mindset regarding food).
    Julie and Kylie wrap up this episode by discussing the importance of your mindset and breaking the stigma around food and how you can truly eat and enjoy food while still achieving fitness goals.  Kylie shares the importance of rest days and how your body will tell you how many days you need to rest.
