    Carol is a personal trainer as well as a nutrition and cycling coach who has been in the wellness field for over thirty years. She is also a wife and mother of four. Deanna talks to Carol about her newly released twenty-one-day devotional “I Am His,” aimed to help women find their sources of strength, beauty, and truth.
    Carol accepted Jesus at forty-years-old.  This was a big inspiration for why Carol felt compelled to write this book. She explains how earlier on in her life, she was raised in the Jewish religion but felt called and pulled towards Christianity.
    Praying is difficult to make a consistent habit of, especially in the current times. Carol delves into how she started developing an effective routine to incorporate it into her daily life and how she made it a priority.
    Carol and Deanna discuss their favorite verses, devotionals, and scenarios in which they have used and applied in real life. Women of all backgrounds will find “I Am His” can be a daily encouragement to help you to feel at peace with your life and allow you to fully embrace yourself as a woman in the eyes of God. It will allow you to step into your true potential.

    Let's Talk Healthy Living With Alison Lewis

    In this episode of Well and Worthy Life, Alison Lewis, one of Deanna’s friends, joins to discuss their mutual love of healthy living. They get into how they first met playing tennis (but both haven’t played in years) and have some casual girl talk.
    Alison is from Birmingham, Alabama, and tells us how she went from working as an editor at the highly sought after “Southern Living” magazine to raising 3 children who are all 22 months apart. After that, she has gone on to create and develop her very own travel magazine. Alison then dives into how she released her own cookbooks and what they showcase.
    On her blog which she started in 2008, Alison regularly shares her favorite recipes. She recalls the first time that one of her posts blew up and the sense of accomplishment she felt. Alison explains her inspiration behind writing one of her books: 200 Best Smoothie Bowl Recipes.
    Alison and Deanna discuss some of the best travel destinations they have been to and how their travel plans have been derailed because of COVID-19. We also hear about some scenes Deanna has experienced which make it seem like the pandemic is not even occurring.
    Just recently Alison has begun ramping up her blog activity, so she provides us with a rundown of what to expect and comments on some recent recipes she has posted.

    Getting Back On Track When I Have Been Derailed

    Getting Back On Track When I Have Been Derailed

    In today’s brief episode, Deanna is talking about how many of us have gotten off track during the COVID-19 pandemic. At the beginning of quarantine, Deanna was eating right and getting her workouts in. During the past week, she admits that she got off track; she neither felt nor looked her best. She started thinking about what she needed to do to get back on track, so she’s sharing her findings with us today.
     
    The first thing Deanna does to get back on track is to decide that enough is enough. She tells us about the short-sighted decisions she makes sometimes that she pays for later – including examples from this pandemic when she ate sugar.
     
    After making the decision, it’s important to come up with a plan of action. Coming up with one doesn’t have to involve major decisions. It can be something small and simple that you can feel successful at. We hear about Deanna celebrating her own small victory in avoiding sweet indulgences.
     
    Deanna gets into the importance of women to eat whole foods. We need proper nutrition to support our hormones, but it can be so easy to grab a quick option. We have to do a little bit of meal prep so that we don’t fall into the gran-and-go trap.
     
    A lot of us have gotten off track during COVID-19. However, we just need to decide that we are going to get back on track, put that into action, and then do it. Consistency compounds; it just takes time. It’s a process, but you can do it.

    Let's Talk About Our Relationship With Alcohol With Jenn - The Sober Sis

    Let's Talk About Our Relationship With Alcohol With Jenn - The Sober Sis

    In today’s episode, Deanna is joined by Jenn, AKA Sober Sis. The conversation is about how to recognize an unhealthy relationship with alcohol and how to work towards changing your mindset and lifestyle.
    Jenn is a recent empty nester, with 2 mid-twenties children. Jenn and Deanna discuss the excitement and opportunity they both feel being empty nesters. Jenn talks about how she feels the path she is on now is truly what God intended for her, even if it wasn’t what she expected.
    Jenn then tells us how she spent her late 20’s building her family. She found herself as a working mom in her early 30’s utilizing the social happy hour more and more. Although she thought of herself as a healthy, mindful person by day she would undo all her good work come 5 pm. She talks about how she ultimately felt misaligned and in conflict with herself.
    Jenn and Deanna then discuss how they have both quit alcohol for short periods before and Jenn talks about how having the wrong approach and mindset to quitting drinking can lead to failure. Deanna lets us know about how drinking affected her in ways she hadn’t realized until her husband brought it up.
    Jenn talks about how the stigma of sobriety often puts pressure on women to drink socially and the way in which alcohol consumption can affect us both physically and mentally. Jenn and Deanna discuss the importance of understanding the root cause of your relationship with alcohol before you can quit successfully.
    Jenn finishes the episode by explaining how her 21-day challenge works and the importance of the community she has built. If you take it one day at a time and focus on progress over perfection, you too can succeed.

    More On Healthy Habits And Breaking Bad Habits

    More On Healthy Habits And Breaking Bad Habits

    Deanna is back with Amy Ramsey, fellow health coach and creator of The Fit Soul. Last week the two discussed identity-based habits, recommended some great books on forming habits, and shared how to create habits based on who you want to become. This week, Deanna and Amy cover finding your bad habits trigger, the four steps to break a habit, as well as more tips for creating positive habits in your life.
    When trying to break a bad habit, the first step you have to take is to investigate what triggers it. Deanna and Amy discuss a bad habit they share and break it down together. This can be applied to any bad habit: excessive phone use, overeating, or anything else you are struggling with; recognize and acknowledge what is causing you to engage in the behavior. 
    Amy explains the four steps to breaking a bad habit: make the bad habit invisible, unattractive, difficult, and unsatisfying. She gives an example of struggling to spend less time on social media and suggests taking apps off your phone, making it difficult to get to them. Finding someone to hold you accountable for your actions is important no matter which habit you are trying to break. 
    Deanna and Amy bring the conversation back to the positive, sharing more tips on forming good habits. Amy suggests habit stacking, as well as ritualizing your habits so they become part of your routine. If you feel overwhelmed, take it down a step. Deanna and Amy believe the small changes are the most important.

    Let's Talk About Healthy Habits With Amy Ramsey A Health Coach

    Let's Talk About Healthy Habits With Amy Ramsey A Health Coach

    Deanna is joined in the first of a two-part episode by her friend and fellow health coach, Amy Ramsey. Amy is the creator of The Fit Soul, where she helps empower women to be the best, healthiest version of themselves without dieting or committing their lives to the gym. Deanna and Amy discuss how to make and keep habits, going in-depth on forming identity-based habits, finding your “bigger why”, and the importance of forming a habit loop.
     
    Identity-based habits are habits formed around doing things according to becoming the person that you want to be. A lot of people are on autopilot when making decisions and try to white-knuckle it to create habits, which simply does not work. When making decisions, everything should revolve around the version of who you want to become.
     
    Related to identity-based habits is finding your “bigger why” for having a goal or creating a habit. Amy explains how she works with clients on finding the true reason they want to change. If she has a client that wants to lose weight, she describes how they need to find a deeper reason than just “look good in my clothes” or even “feel more confident”.
     
    Amy shares the importance of forming a habit loop; your habits should be obvious, attractive, easy, and satisfying. Simplify your habit process if you’re feeling overwhelmed and then build from there. Deanna explains the importance of progress over perfection and finding a community when you are trying to create positive change.
