Grit: What To Do When You’re Fat

Grit: What To Do When You’re Fat

SHOW NOTES

You step on to your bathroom scale, the room gets dim, and as you see the higher than expected number, a blood curdling scream comes out…YOU ARE FAT is written on the mirror in chocolate. (A little dramatic but did I get the tone right?)

Look, YOU are not fat; you just have fat. And there is absolutely no human trait directly related to extra adipose tissue. But it is normal to have a weight range (an amount of fat) you are comfortable with, and when that number has creeped up, it’s also normal to feel uncomfy.

So, like, what do you do?

First, DONT FREAK THE FUCK OUT. It is what it is; don’t let it take over your personality, don’t jump to extremes, don’t hop aboard the yo yo diet train... Just calmly and collectively make your way to step two.

CURIOSITY AND CALM COURSE COLLECTION. Hmmmm, this fat didn't get here all on its own; something happened. But what? Reflect on your habits, make a hypothesis, and then test that hypothesis in a calm, simple way.

Lastly, all the while…DO IT FAT. (By IT, I mean life, sex, self love, shopping, beach trips, you name it.) Don’t put your life on hold for a thinner self; ultimately, the confidence and self love you need to become thin happens when you’re fat.

But for real, letting your habits slip is not evil, consuming more calories than you’re expending does not make you a bad person. It’s all just information.

Listen all the way to the end of the episode for an update on the pod. Chat soon!

  • Why do you feel so strongly about extra adipose tissue?
  • 3 steps for when the scale is creeping up and you’re uncomfy.

Grit: Resilience and Healing After Trauma with Shannon Moroney

SHOW NOTES

Imagine being 30, thriving, living your BEST life, and one simple knock at the door changing EVERYTHING.

Shannon Moroney is the author of Through the Glass, her personal story filled with love, loss, violence, pain, empowerment, and growth.

We ask the question, can love be erased by behavior? The trauma and aftermath of Shannon’s first husband's violent crimes lead to nuanced discussions on grief and support.

Shannon calls her story "unique, not unrelatable”. (There are millions of people in prison, so why are we considering the pain and trauma of the loved ones on the outside?)

I hope this episode challenges you to consider how you’re supporting your friends and family through a crisis. Are you listening? Find the Words is Shannon’s greeting card line, which she designed specifically to help you say the right things—or, more importantly, not say the wrong things.

From victim to empowered, Shannon chose her happiness and saved her soul. She now works toward achieving restorative justice as a victim advocate and as a private practice trauma therapist.

What would you do when the unthinkable happens? Let Shannon Moroney inspire you!

WHAT’S INSIDE:

  • A story of love, loss, violence, pain, empowerment, and growth.
  • What should you say to your loved ones in crisis?
  • The other side of the justice system, loved ones on the ‘outside’.
  • What is restorative justice?
  • Moving through trauma toward soul saving happiness.

Can you believe the strength and GRIT in Shannon?! She offers some great advice on how to support loved ones in crisis. How do you lend your listening ear? Or if you’ve been there, what has been the best support YOU’VE received?

Goal: Have More Lovers (Even If You Are Already Married) with Tara Lynne Franco and André Turcotte

Goal: Have More Lovers (Even If You Are Already Married) with Tara Lynne Franco and André Turcotte

SHOW NOTES

Here’s a sexy goal: ethical non-monogamy. (Okay I’m sure right off the bat you’re having a pretty strong reaction, but hear us out.)

Tara and André are the coach and therapist behind T&A Coach and Therapy and Let’s Talk Polyamory. What started as a fun and frisky thought during a heated sexcapade opened up their world to the deeply rewarding work that is non-monogamy.


True personal reckoning, pure consensual intentions, and the best communication you’ve ever dreamed of are part of the recipe for a successful polyamorous lifestyle.


Tara and André teach us all the flavors of ethical non-monogamy (spoiler alert vanilla is not one of them) and the challenges and abounding benefits that come with them.


Listen, whether you’re kinda curious or you’re a big hell no… Entertaining the idea of this lifestyle is not unlike any other goal, whether it’s fitness or professional, or deeply personal.


You’re curious. There may be some naysayers. You work through your inner voice and insecurities. You create a plan or agreement. AND you put yourself out there.

See it’s not all unicorns and threesomes on the beach ( I mean it can be if you want it to though.)

As you press play on this episode, be open minded and really listen to Tara and André, you’ll hear wisdom, respect, and a whole lot of passion!! Now that’s a goal anyone can get behind. (;

WHAT’S INSIDE:

  • What the hell is ethical non-monogamy?
  • Defining the different non-monogamous relationships.
  • Say it louder for the people in the back, why communication is KEY!
  • Beyond sex, the benefits of a polyamorous lifestyle.
  • How to find polyamorous partners?
  • How considering polyamory just like working toward any other goal.

This is a spicy one! How can you relate your current goals to creating a polyamorous lifestyle? What surprised you the most about the deep relationship work involved in ethical non-monogamy?

WooWoo Shit: Make Better Decisions Using Intuition with Lisa K

SHOW NOTES

I have a sneaking feeling you’re going to love this episode. Hey! Maybe that’s my intuition!?

You ever feel like you know something but you don’t know how you know it? According to Lisa K, this is actually intuition, and it is information coming from the right side of your brain.

So if you envisioned your eyes rolling back into your head and some spirit coming through you to answer all your questions with bright lights shining out of every orifice, you might be taking this peeking curiosity a little too Woo Woo. (Did you know there is actual science to back this shit up!?)

In our conversation, Lisa K shares how finding (and listening) to her intuition SAVED her life. [woah that’s intense…you don’t have to start out with that, you could try just using it to choose your apples at the grocery store.]

When we start practicing how to use our intuition and recognize when it's speaking to us, we can let it guide very small decisions. The more you do that, the more you will have it there for you when it comes to making big decisions like what career you should try or what house you should buy.

Lisa has a step by step process on how to access this universal wisdom, and today she shares three things you can keep in mind to get started today.

  1. Pause. Listen. Notice what you’re drawn to.
  2. Don’t quiet the chatter of your mind, recognize the difference between your thinking mind and intuitive mind… they might be talking to each other!
  3. Recognize the characteristics of intuition, it is never negative or critical or second guessing.

Oprah, Jeff Bezos, Steve Jobs, Einstein... They all directly mention intuition when it comes to their wisdom and success. They must be on to something, right?

It’s time to start listening to the right side of your brain. Check out Lisa K’s freebie to unlock your internal guide.

WHAT’S INSIDE:

  • Want access to universal wisdom?
  • How to have an easier life and meet your full potential.
  • How intuition saved Lisa K’s life.
  • What is intuition…really?
  • What is hiding inside the right side of your brain?

What would you do if you always knew the right answer? What decisions are you going to make when you unlock your intuition?

EPISODE 16: 

Goal: Find Your Purpose with Kusudi Muithi

Goal: Find Your Purpose with Kusudi Muithi

SHOW NOTES

To be or not to be, that is the question.

Okay, no this isn’t a lesson on Shakespeare but it IS a reality check on who you are being.

Kusudi Muithi was everything he shouldn’t be until he wasn’t. From life in the streets, in and out of jail, and even surviving a gunshot to the head (talk about a sign that you’re meant for great things!?).

He was in jail when he finally reached his threshold for pain and turned inward to find out who he really was and his life changed forever.

If you’re looking for a magical guru to hold your hand and lead you to an open door of success, Kusudi isn’t that. He’s much more.

Learn that it’s time to realize you’ll never find your purpose, because guess what? It’s not lost.

Or that in order to reach your “goals” they have to become commitments.

Kusudi has this poetic way of sharing all of this incredible wisdom and advice, you’ve just got to hear it for yourself.

WHAT’S INSIDE:

  • Why you’ll never find your purpose.
  • We all have different pain tolerances; what’s your breakthrough moment?
  • What’s the difference between a goal and a commitment?
  • Why YOU should be creating value in every program you join.
  • Stop worrying about who you are and worry about who you’re being.
  • Coat check? Is the “coat” you’re wearing right for this season of your life?

Kusudi dropped some awesome knowledge and perspectives, what stuck with you the most?
