Do you struggle with low energy and catch yourself reminiscing about when you were “young” and able to keep up?

Are you overwhelmed by even having to THINK about what it’d take to lose weight?

Do you mindlessly snack and give in to late night cravings?

Are you bogged down by the shame that comes with knowing what to do, but not being able to get yourself to do it consistently?

Do you feel like anything you try is bound to fail, so there’s no point in trying anyway?

Friend, there’s HOPE! Hope to feel strong and confident in your body, to create consistency in your habits, to lose the weight, and to have clarity on how to partner with God to experience a healthy lifestyle that lasts!

Hey, I’m Robin Rhine McDonald, a follower of Jesus, a wife, a mama of 2, and a seminarian turned health coach. And I am SO excited that you are here!!

I found myself 20lbs heavier, struggling to keep my eyes open in the afternoons, with a face full of acne. I was confused as to how I ended up there, being that I worked out and felt like I ate fairly healthy.

It seemed like no matter what I tried, I couldn’t create the results I wanted in a way that I could see myself maintaining long term.

It wasn’t until I discovered the unlimited motivation and FREEDOM that exists in living according to God’s VISION for my life and health that I began to see changes.

That is when I realized the most important thing to ever impact my life and health - If I wanted change, I had to partner with God!

With God, I crafted a healthy lifestyle that led to ENERGY, healthy weight loss, and confidence in my body WITHOUT feeling overwhelmed or giving in to old patterns.

10 years and two kids later, by the GRACE OF GOD, I’m still prioritizing my health and feeling amazing.

I’ve become gripped with the vision of seeing EVERY body that comprises the BODY of Christ healthy and well.

In this podcast, I (and the guests I bring on) will show you how to:

*Achieve the results you want and KEEP them

*Implement simple healthy habits that you ENJOY that fit your busy schedule

*Ditch the negative beliefs and lies that keep you from creating results that LAST

*Take hold of Biblical health through truth and encouragement for healthy living

*Learn what it means to have Kingdom health as a Christian woman

*See the possibilities and opportunity of a healthy life in partnership with God

*Make changes NOW that will set you up for energy and vitality later in life

*Simplify cooking and preparing healthy meals and snacks for you and your family - that everyone LOVES

*Learn which foods and meals increase energy and support healthy weight loss

*Create endless motivation and drive for your health by aligning with God’s VISION for your life

*Partner with God every step of the way!

I mix my seminary education with my studies in integrative nutrition to help Jesus loving women, like YOU, develop the energy and vitality to live out their unique God-given calling!

Go grab a giant water bottle and start sipping. It’s time to learn how to create the healthy lifestyle you’ve always wanted - with Jesus as the VISION that drives you.

Hit play and listen on!

    50. Holy & Hungry | Can It Really Be That Simple?

    50. Holy & Hungry | Can It Really Be That Simple?

    Hey Friend!


    Welcome to the first episode of the Holy & Hungry series!! I want to take time each week SPECIFICALLY to get into some Scripture and get encouraged in healthy living.
    I think the MOST powerful and transformative reality we have as followers of Jesus is that God CARES about your health and wants to be involved in the formation of your healthy habits.
    This first episode is about how simple it really can be to experience positive change in your body.
    We're taking a look at 2 Kings 5 as the basis for today's encouragement.
    I pray it blesses you!
    Happy Valentine's Day!
    Hope & Joy,
    Robin

    49. How to Manage Sugar Cravings Naturally While Having Dessert Every Night

    49. How to Manage Sugar Cravings Naturally While Having Dessert Every Night

    Hey Friend!
    After having a few friends point out to me how strange my dessert eating habits were, I realized I had to make an episode about it. Because the truth is, as a health coach who is big on balancing blood sugar and eating whole foods, I have dessert most nights and have maintained a healthy weight for over 10 years.
     
    With Valentine's being this week, I know we're all facing a bit of chocolate temptation, so what better topic than how to manage sugar cravings and STILL enjoy some tasty treats?
     
    Enjoy!!
     
    Blessings & Health,
    Robin

    How does this connect with physical well being and healthy habits?
    That's precisely what I'm covering today.
    I hope it blesses you!
    Health & Joy,

    Hey friend!
    This episode is part two of a conversation I had with my friend, Jennifer Skaw.
    If you loved part 1, you might end up loving this one even more. Which, I know, is tough to imagine because the first part was so good!
     
    In this episode, Jennifer takes it next level and brings some very tangible tips that you can use right away to begin to take control of your mind and shine the truth and light of Jesus on all that has been occupying space in your mind as it relates to food and health.
     
    Her story of how she took her eating disorder into her own hands and learned how to shift herself into a healthy approach to eating is inspiring, to say the least.
     
    I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation and I am confident it is going to bless you.Enjoy!!

Perfect Timing, Perfect fit

I have just found this podcast. Wow ;what an absolute blessing. A Christ centered focused, healthy view. I haven’t been listening for long, but I have learned so much already.

Thank you Ms. Robin I pray blessings on you and that the Lord continues to add to your clientele, and use you to proclaim, his word. Just like scripture says “I pray that you may prosper and be in good health even as your soul prospers..”

It also was a great find prior to the holidays to help change the mindset of holiday eating , Not just turn over a new leaf. Thanks again “can’t weight “ for more to come.
