Episode #57: Why Celery Juice is a Load of Bullshit | A Solo Episode

PODCAST BLOG PHOTO (20).png

DO YOU STRUGGLE WITH OVEREATING?

For the longest time, food consumed my life. I was OBSESSED with every diet trend — the celery juice craze y’all are sooooo in love with? I would have 100% been on that train a few years back.

I had convinced that the only way that I could be “healthy” was to eat bird food and rock every diet trend in sight (which caused my mental health and bank account to suffer REAL quick), and eating quickly became my least favourite activity because it truly controlled my life.

Not to mention it led to years of yo yo-ing like crazy.

Why I’m so AGAINST the trendy diets and health hacks like celery juice? They more often than not ‘cause our bodies to go into distress and lead to the inverse of our intentions: OVEREATING.

Do you struggle with this too? You are SO not alone.

Now I am NOT saying this is true for everyone on the planet. We ALLLLL have different needs and triggers. But I know my gals, my overachieving all or nothing, yo yo dieter babes. If you’re not that and don’t struggle with this shiz, move on sistah ;) But if this resonates hard core, this episode is for YOU.


Things I tackle in todays episode:

  • How this trend has become so huge without any science backing it up

  • How this craze reflects a lack in critical thinking happening in society

  • The power of the placebo effect

  • My own history overcoming chronic eczema

  • Debunking the myth of this craze

EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


“You can do any job for the rest of your life. But if you are not happy. If you are not fueled in your relationships. If you are not feeling like a health, happy and alive version of yourself, what is the f*cking point?”


This is a long time coming request for an episode that I’m SO freaking excited to share with you all. So many of you ask me how I started my business, had the courage to quit my day jobs and dive into entrepreneurship and how I make it work.

So today, I dish.

The good, the bad, the unexpected and all the in betweens.

‘Cause the entrepreneur life is a MF rollercoaster. It has opened up so many incredible doors for my life and I could not imagine living my life any other way now that I’m in it, but there were years when I thought it for sure wasn’t for me (and still days where I just wanna throw my hands up in the air and go f*ck it, I’m done).

But the honest truth of it is? This path has helped me uncover my purpose in life and today, I share my story and the jumping off pieces that you can use in your own life to figure out WTF your purpose (or multiple purposes? plural? who knows?) are on this planet.

You ready? Here we go.


Episode #38: Orthorexia and the shit no one talks about in the fitness world | A Solo Episode

EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


“If you’re not happy with something in your life. Whether it’s your health, your relationships, the way you talk to yourself, the way you prioritize things, your job…literally anything in your life. You are in control. You are at the drivers seat. And you have the power to change your life if you decide to.


Orthorexia.

A word that until a couple of years ago, I had no idea existed, and yet, applied so wholeheartedly to my relationship with fitness for years.

How does fitness fit into your life?

Do you approach it from a place of lack? Working out because you at that cookie and you’re trying to “work it off”? Or because you are trying to get in shape for that big trip so you can look “good in a bikini”?

Or do you approach it as a gift? Something that gives you energy? Brings positivity into your day? Makes you feel confident, happy, vibrant?

Today’s episode dives into the pitfalls of fitness and how to move out of a negative mindset around fitness.

Don’t spend your life on automatic pilot — let’s start building intentional habits so we can use these years to THRIVE and EMERGE into the women we were put on this earth to be.

PODCAST BLOG PHOTO (20).png

"How do you have so much energy?"

"You're so consistent - how do you stay motivated?"

I get questions like this into my inbox all the time and why I've decided to dedicated an episode of this series to this very topic.

And I've spent the past few years accumulating tools and resources to be able to create motivation and consistency in my journey that has allowed me to find the energy and confidence I have today.

And I'm excited to share these tools with you so you can get there in YOUR journey too!

In today's episode, some of the things we discuss are:

  • What it actually means to be consistent on your health & wellness journey
  • How to show up as your most confident self
  • The truth about motivation
  • And so much more!

"We can be predisposed to certain things, but we can choose to better our health and choose things that make us feel well and vibrant and not be a victim to the cards we've been handed." 

After losing her mom to cancer at 15 and years of exploration in jobs that just seemed to stifle her purpose and silence her authentic voice, Wendy Weeks bowed out of a "traditional" job to pursue her soul's work in the holistic wellness world. Living in Denver, Colorado, Wendy is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and yoga instructor that guides others to find their way back home -- mind, body and soul. She coaches soul-seekers on how to ditch the toxins in their life so they can rise up into their most authentic selves.

Here are a few things we discuss in todays episode:

  • Her journey from working full time in corporate to transitioning to working for herself in the wellness space
  • Losing a parent at a young age
  • Finding your souls purpose
  • Nutritional therapy
  • How listening to our intuition/gut can lead to incredible things
  • Her perspective on how disease is being normalized in our day and age
  • Small actions we can start taking today to improve our health
