Case Study Series

A Case Study Series- Lose the Weight and Keep it Off
Jenna has lost weight many times.
When she was younger she liked to workout and went to exercise classes. If she wanted to lose weight she could just give up carbs and sugar and the pounds would melt away. She lost 40 pounds doing the Keto Diet a few years ago, and she loved it, but she couldn’t maintain it and over time the weight crept back. Jenna wanted to lose the weight, but more than that, she wanted to have more energy and feel comfortable in her own skin. She was sick of feeling self-conscious and constantly pulling her shirt away from her body. Jenna did the work and has lost the weight, kept it off, and transformed the way she sees herself.

If you haven’t yet, be sure to go back and listen to the previous podcasts in the case study series. Number 81 is about Tara, a self-proclaimed control freak, and how she learned to be less critical and enjoy the journey.   Number 80 . It’s all about where limiting thoughts sneak in and how they affect us. Why do we need to talk about our past anyway?  We dig into that, and I share some of my past and what I learned about my thoughts and feelings.

Marriage Killers

Marriage Killers – Part 1 (Extreme Words)
There are common pitfalls in marriage that trip us up. 
Some of them are complicated, but some of them are just plain dumb. 
The words we use to make our point can destroy relationships. 
Too often, one person will make a statement that derails the whole point of the conversation and next thing we know there’s an argument about whether some particular wrongdoing happened on Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning. We’ve missed the point, and now we’re arguing about semantics. How about you never use these statements again ever? Well, try.
My husband is always angry.
My wife never spends time with me.
He literally ignores me.
She hates me.
I’ve just given up.

The great news is, with just a few tweaks to your verbiage you can make a huge difference in your marriage. Start noticing the words you speak today!

This week on our podcast we have a special guest Lisa Marie Fletcher. Lisa Marie Fletcher is a homeschooling mom of 5 kids ranging from preschool to high school. When her homeschooling journey began, she searched for Canadian homeschooling resources and started to share them online.

As a homeschooling mom her best advice is to lower the bar.
Whether you homeschool or not, she has some great tools to help you carve time into your day for your dreams, successes, and so much more. There are ways to make your dreams come true while homeschooling, or while being the best mom you can be.

Commit to Your Health

I’d always wanted to be healthy, but I could never be successful long term. I’d have a few good days but I could never maintain it. I’d keep my morning routine for a few days and then fall apart. I’d lose weight but then gain it all back. It wasn’t until I turned 40 that it worked. If I reflect on it, the difference was that I COMMITTED to the goal.
