Fit Womens Weekly Podcast

This weekend I did my first OCR in ages, the Bulldog Challenge. It's put on by the Citadel and is a 4-person team 10K obstacle challenge around their campus.

Our team worked to make it through their O-course, the swimming pool, truck push, garage "wounded soldier carry" and much much more.

Can't wait for next year and to improve on our weaknesses!

Questions:

-What are our thoughts on fat burners and metabolism boosters? How do they work, which do we like?

-How to handle the comparison game of social media? Esp when you've suffered from obsessive exercise and calorie cutting?

-What's the March challenge and how did 4900 of pushups in Feb go?

We have so many amazing opportunities today to do whatever it is we want. From teacher to doctor to personal trainer to firefighter! I am inspired by you all and would love to do more of these "Real Women Living Their Fitness" segments.

This week’s episode is all about your questions! From fitness to nutrition, I received some awesome questions for you guys that I couldn’t pass on. I hope you enjoy the show and please keep shooting those questions over via Instagram, email or from the website.

Today’s Questions:

What kind of nutrition program am I (and Dan) currently following? Do we follow low carb, high fat/protein diet and what foods do we stay away from in our home for optimal health? (I think this answer is going to surprise you!).

How to workout when you’re recovering from an injury and feeling like you’re lacking on “the burn”? How many sets should you do? How many reps? What kind of weight?

A listener wrote in saying how much she loves MetCon style workouts and has her circuit training days up to 6 but wants to know what to do on the 7th day to round out her week? This is a really important question, so make sure to listen in!

We’re also going to catch up on life and chat about fitness, goals and more! What’s the plan for February’s challenge? It’s all about pushups, so listen in and let me know if you want to join me in my insanity!

This episode is all about becoming smarter and more aware! After catching up and talking recent workouts, we tackled some AWESOME reader questions... 

"I was listening recently you mentioned that you just finished the book "The Microbiome Diet." I have been struggling with my digestion for the past 2 months and following the Paleo guidelines, but it doesn't seem to be fixing the issue.  I can only imagine that it has something to do with my gut.

I am curious as to which other nutrition books you have read and enjoyed in the past and which ones you are looking into.  I am currently a personal trainer and have lately been very interested in nutrition.  I would like to keep learning and broaden my knowledge on all of the latest nutritional trends that we have seen in our society."

What a great question! Books mentioned:

The Microbiome Diet
The Paleo Cure
Eat To Live (Not recommended)
The Wild Diet
The Mind-Gut Connection (Super stoked to start)

And a few favorite mindset resources discussed:

Infinite Possibilities
Dying To Be Me
Finish
Sarah Blakely (on Youtube)

And the 2nd question we discussed dealing with exercise compulsion/addiction when you're stuck at a desk all day. How to relief feelings of anxiety from non-movement and to safely fit movement in your day.

If you ask Stacy, she'll tell you that I've been a blessing to her. That's not true. The moment I became her trainer, I was the one blessed. So much to learn from this woman and so much inspiration.

After several tours through Iraq as a combat photographer, Stacy was forced to leave the military after sustaining severe injuries from a bomb. Her life changed, her lifestyle changed and her mind and body changed. Listen to her story as she explains how the ketone diet has helped her seizures and how finding a womens studio has given her back her "team" and purpose. You guys, if you only listen to one of my podcast, listen to this one.

Hello friends! In this week's episode, Ashley and I hit on quite a few topics... the biggest being: Is it possible to gain muscle without fat? And if so, how? 

What kind of workouts should you do? What should your nutrition look like to fuel a body to gain a few healthy pounds of muscle and strength. As someone who has gained 15 pounds, you can imagine I have a few things to say about this one.

Oh and let's talk pimples!

Macros, intermittent fasting, paleo, Whole30, keto... it's as if we need a plan to survive and eat. The other day I was telling Dan that I was going to start IF (intermittent fasting) with Alex to which he responded with...

"Why do women need a plan for eating!? Why can't you just eat good food, leave out the sugar and just eat when you're hungry?"

The man has a point. For so long, I've been tracking macros or trying something. Have we (women) forgotten how to naturally eat? Why do we need a plan? I talk about it today and also fill you guys in on some random happenings!

Girls Gone Wod with Joy and Claire is one of my favorite podcast. It's two friends sitting together and talking about life, food, fitness and everything else in between.

But recently Joy has been having a lot of deep chats about body image, what's positive and what's negative and how women are bringing one another down on social media by showing off their bodies instead of physical strengths.

As someone who has battled exercise addiction and food obsessions, I get it. But That doesn't mean I don't have a counter argument.

Luckily, Ashley (@AshleyDrummonds) is with me and we share VERY similar thoughts on positive body image between ladies. So sit back and enjoy. If you have thoughts don't hesitate to share!

We've heard stories about the women who lost their periods due to high intensity exercise, so they cut back for a bit, ate more and voila... period returns. (Listen to Ep 111 for Tina Muir's story). But that's not always the case.

What happens when you cut back on exercise, relax more with food, and nothing happens? No period, no hormonal changes... just frustration and more waiting. That's what's going on for my friend Emma (@healthybalancewithemma). I feel honored that she asked to share her story and the steps she's taken to work for her fertility.

In today's episode she shares everything. What led her to not have a period. How long she waited before seeing a doctor. And the steps she has taken since to try and regain her fertility. Please be kind and share some love as this is a very personal episode and takes a lot of courage to share.

Ashley (AshleyDrummonds.com) is back with me to discuss an issue that seems to be popping up everywhere: under eating.

You've likely seen women talking about losing weight while eating the most they ever have. Or women having a hard time losing weight because they aren't eating enough. In the current trend of Macros, undereating and overeating are getting lots of attention.

Recently, we've heard undereating being used as an excuse for lack of results and even weight gain... so let's talk about it. 

We break it down and explain the truth about not eating enough vs not fueling enough. There's a difference. 

We also talk wine, finds, and workouts. Enjoy!

We all can agree on two things: 1). Social media is an important part of our society 2). It can really bring us down or lift us up depending on the mood we’re in or the content that shows up on our timelines.

It's week 2 of our Real Women Talk series with my friend and fellow fitness badass, Ashley Drummonds (Ashleydrummonds.com). This week let's talk about trying new things.

It can be tough to try a new gym, form of fitness or even focus on an exercise we're not used to doing often. Trying new can be scary... but guess what? 99% of the time when you're done you'll ask yourself, "What did I have to be nervous about?"

Ashley and I share our own journeys to getting comfortable in the gym... away from the cardio machines! 

Plus, let's talk muscle. And weight lifting. And women. Does lifting make you bulky? It seems this is one concern women still share and it's time we get to the bottom of it!
