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.

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.

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!

Let’s get social:
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!

Whether you’re a working mom outside of the house or you are a mama who works from home, having a Personal Operating System or routine is a must.
In this week’s show, I walk you through my quarterly planning system for our busy family schedule. You’ll learn how to establish a routine as a working mom using this proven system to meal plan, map out your kids’ schedule, doctor’s appointments, and even be able to schedule some down time in for a little self-care without the guilt.
Before I created this routine, life felt chaotic and stressful every time my husband left for work, and often way before then if I am being honest. It took some time to figure out a system that works, but lucky for you, I’ve already done the leg work and now you get to plug and play the parts of my system that work for you…and leave what doesn’t.
Whether you use this as inspiration for your own routine or as a template, you will be amazed at how much time you get back, how much more energy you have, and how much you’re getting done. Hello productivity and efficiency, good bye overwhelm and exhaustion!
