    EP130 Photo Anxiety

    EP130 Photo Anxiety

    Are photos everything? Should you depend on them for information about yourself? A photo can give you important information and help you preserve valuable memories. It can also give you a very limited perspective of yourself that doesn’t necessarily reflect how you look to yourself or to other people. In today’s episode, Rachael and Kelsea discuss cameras and other tools, the dysphoria that they can cause, and how to think about the information that you get from these tools.

    Topics Discussed in Today’s Episode:


    Understanding why photos of the same person look different
    Why photo anxiety doesn’t just affect you on good days
    Why people sometimes give up because of pictures
    Why photos are important
    Why one perspective isn’t everything
    Avoiding outsourcing and relinquishing your power
    Why cameras can’t capture what the human eye can
    Living your truth

    EP128 The Approach Is The Destination

    EP128 The Approach Is The Destination

    The approach is the destination and if that's true then you're never truly finished.

    You’ve hit the finish line! Or have you? It’s not really over if you’re just going to have to do it again. Focusing on the finish line can be distracting, especially if you’re putting too much expectation on what you’ll feel when you get there and not enough on the experience of getting there. Today, Rachael and Kelsea discuss the problem of being distracted by the finish line, why we fall short, and how you can work on experiencing your journey instead of worrying about the destination.

    Topics Discussed in Today’s Episode:


    The distraction of the finish line
    How that distraction can be damaging to your life and fitness
    Falling just short
    The approach is the destination
    Experiencing your journey
    Feeling pressure and anxiety

Nikki Never Quit ,

So glad I found you!

I am so glad I found this podcast! I know you girls are BEASTS in the gym and so far beyond my fitness level but you somehow speak to me personally! I am over 300lbs, in my early 30s and just started my fitness journey. I had no idea that girls who I saw in the gym that are so beautiful and have the best body think the same thoughts I think. I feel so empowered when listening to you, and I will never quit. I’ve lost 40 lbs in the past 4 months... just the beginning for me!!

Listening to this podcast to and from work makes my day and gets my mind ready for whatever the day is going to throw at me whether I’m my classroom or at home as a mom. Love you girls!
