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.

Dismantling modern day racism in the healthy and beauty industry

Dismantling modern day racism in the healthy and beauty industry

 

 

For many of us, racism seems like a thing of the past, like something that ‘used’ to happen. In this week’s show I sit down to talk with a fitness influencer on her experiences with racism and how she is dismantling modern day racism in the health and beauty industry starting in her own home.

There is a common attitude that if it doesn’t happen to me, it’s just not happening–sadly, this was exactly my same mindset until recently. That’s simply not true. With the killing of George Floyd earlier this year we as a nation have seen just how much racism still exists in The Land of The Free.

Mari also opens up about how she is raising the next generation of fierce young girls to love their bodies and their skin no matter the shade or size.

If you want to learn more about Mari Witzel, you can connect with her on IG @mari_unfiltered.

100% of women struggle with this + 5 ways to cultivate a better body image

Last year at a sorority I spoke at, I asked the question who here has at least ONE thing they want to change about their bodies they don’t like. Every single hand went up. 100 % of the women in that room struggled to be content in their bodies as is.

This is a massive problem. It’s a silent epidemic that is costing us 100s of thousands of dollars and even more time. The diet industry is a multibillion dollar industry that makes its money on our insecurities and our fears.

Learn 5 ways to cultivate a better body image in this week’s episode and learn how to get more time, energy, and money back with the simple plan outlined in this week’s episode.


 

You were made for a much bigger purpose than worrying about what you do or don’t look like. It’s time we start acting like it!

Master a busy mom schedule with time budgeting

pexels-photo-1037993

 

It hardly seems like there is enough time in a twenty-four hour period to get everything done. Often times we find our to do list outworks us, and keeps us up at night with stress and anxiety over everything we didn’t get done.

If you’re like the old me, you have extremely high expectations for yourself. You pride yourself on being the one who has it “all together”…at least on the outside. Inside you often feel exhausted, burned out, and overwhelmed by your desire to be the best at everything.

I can’t remember exactly where I first heard this, but they say as a full time entrepreneur, you should aim to get 3 tasks done each day. That’s progress. As for me, I am still working on whittling that number down, but I am happy to say, I am prioritizing my most important tasks due to this simple hack around time management: time budgeting.

 

In this week’s episode, I am pulling the curtain back to share my strategy with you, so you too, can work from a to-do list that actually gets done, that aligns with your core values, and your top priorities. You may be a super mom (no doubt about that), but you do still have just 24 hours in a day. Let’s maximize the time you do have!

xx,
Alisha
