Cycle syncing 101- learn how to use your monthly cycle in a powerful way

Let’s talk about Aunt FLO for a sec. her monthly visit used to be the worst time of the month for me.
Cramps. Bloating. Cravings. Acne.
Then I was introduced to the concept of cycle syncing.
This is literally where you sync your lifestyle to your monthly cycle.
You learn how to partner WITH your body (ahem, hullo non-diet approach )

Rather than working against it.
I hate to admit this, but As a woman, I haven’t really thought about working with my body’s natural monthly rhythm
I always just viewed my cycle as that monthly visit from Aunt Flo…not the entire month.
Turns out, there is so much more to our monthly cycles than our periods.
If you find yourself struggling through the monthly visits from your cycle or if things with your body and your lifestyle just feel sort of ‘off’, then you won’t want to miss this conversation I got to have with Leisha Drews, hormone specialist.
We talk about how you can use your monthly cycle to fuel your workouts, your work, and your life in general.
Pretty rad stuff if you ask me.

Is it time to take a break from the booze? I gave it up for 7 days and here’s what happened

Find yourself counting down the time until it’s ‘socially acceptable’ to have a drink?
Or maybe you have a glass or two of wine to polish off the day because you’ve ‘earned it
or you just need to forget about the stress and anxiety that 2020 has brought.
That was me.
Drinking had become a daily thing for me. And really without even thinking about it.
I’d joke that Jesus turned water into wine, so it must be good.
Or it’s 5 o’clock somewhere. Life coach for women
The truth is, if drinking weren’t a problem for me, I’d never need to find a justification for it. I’d never need to come up with something to say to make myself feel better about having a drink when I really needed something else instead.
This week’s episode of The Strong[HER] Way has been a long time coming.
I actually ran this experiment on myself a couple months ago, and finally had the guts to share it with you now.
It seems like no matter what time of year or day it is, there is always an excuse for a drink. There’s always something to celebrate. Or something to forget.
That finally caught up with me toward the end of summer.
After working with a sobriety coach I decided to cut out alcohol for 7 days. Because, if I’m being honest any longer seemed like too long.
What I learned about myself, how I used alcohol, and what I had allowed it to become in my life was eye opening to say the least.
Whether you are actually struggling with alcohol or not, you don’t want to miss this.
You can run your own experiment on yourself with anything you feel might be a stronghold in your life or is getting in the way.
Spoiler alert: the things that are most hindering actually seem like they are helping you.

PS. Listen to the full episode to No Drink November

Today on the show we talk with Steph Lyons a postpartum expert about the myths and the harmful information out there surrounding postpartum recovery and expectations for new moms.

She also teaches us how to start a postpartum self-care routine whether you’ve just had a baby or it’s been years since you gave birth. Steph discusses diastasis recti, pelvic floor dysfunction, and the unrealistic expectations we place on our bodies as moms.

If you’ve found yourself living with “normal” post baby issues and just chalking it up to the price of having kids, I want to offer there is another way we can approach our healing from bringing babies into the world.

I love how Steph highlights when it comes to your body, you are the expert. And you have every right to question the information out there.

Not sure if you are still struggling with postpartum issues or not? Listen in, become empowered, and debunk the lies and myths we have been told for far too long.

7 Ways to boost your happiness and live your level 10 life today

life coach for women

With all the personal development information out there we are constantly being bombarded with new information about how to live a life with purpose, but are we actually getting any closer?

I was the queen of consumption when it came to personal development. But that’s where it stopped. I’d consume. Take notes. Implement here and there. And nothing was happening.

Well, maybe not nothing, but I for sure wasn’t seeing the massive transformation I had expected.

Here’s the deal. If you want personal development to work and help you create a lifestyle change (or many), you have to work. And you have to be honest with yourself about how you’re really doing.

In my experience, we either think we are 100% nailing life and we would say 10s all across the board…or we swing to the other extreme and totally beat ourselves up.

For the rest of us, we have been so busy treating water, we don’t even know what our best life would actually look like.

Today, I am sharing with you the exact tool I use to help my clients assess where things are really at in their lives. This way they know exactly what to give their time and energy to, and what to ease up on.

 

Not living your level 10 life? I got you! Sign up here to schedule a free consultation. No obligation to buy, but if what you’re doing isn’t working, then maybe it’s time to try something else.

What have you got to lose?

The #1 Reason Intuitive Eating Doesn’t Work

life coach for women

A couple years ago I started hearing about intuitive eating and how amazing it was. As a chronic dieter I was leery of the 10 principles of outlined in the book Intuitive Eating. Learning how to trust myself around food felt scary and honestly impossible.

We are told over and over that hunger is bad. We can’t be trusted around food–such as bread, pasta, or sweets. And we listen in an effort to build healthy habits and healthy lifestyles.

But as I’ve said before, a healthy lifestyle is about so much more than calories consumed or burned. It’s about living a full life. Experiencing health in all areas of your life and not sacrificing in any area for the sake of looking a certain way.

The idea of totally releasing food rules and learning how to listen to my body seemed far fetched at first.

In today’s episode, I share with you the number one reason Intuitive Eating doesn’t work. If you’re considering Intuitive Eating as an alternative to the next diet, listen up.
