232: Amber Brueseke: Strength Training, Mental Toughness and “Biceps after Babies”

232: Amber Brueseke: Strength Training, Mental Toughness and “Biceps after Babies”

July 6, 2020

Amber Brueseke is @Biceps.after.Babies.  We had such a great conversation around motivation, strength training for women, mental toughness and more.

She writes on her site:

"I'm a CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER, a FITNESS INSTRUCTOR, and a REGISTERED NURSE, but first and foremost I am a mom of four. I am a goal-setting girl boss who can't imagine a world without chocolate and peanut butter (combined, preferably).

Most days you can find me trying to balance my life: keeping a clean house, making healthy meals for my family, and shuttling my kids to cubscouts and gymnastics, all while serving in my church, reading uplifting literature, and raising responsible citizens.

It can be exhausting to keep all the balls in the air! But I know how important it is to recharge with some me time. When I get my sweat on, throw some heavy weights around, and fuel my body with the right nutrition, I’m a better wife, mom, sister, and friend.

There’s no reason why you or your body goals should be pushed to the back burner because you’re a mom with a bajillion responsibilities.

I work with moms who need to jump start their fitness goals, from losing fat, gaining muscle, or simply developing a better relationship with food.

I can teach you how to get a rockin’ body that you’ll love at every stage of life, whether you’re a twenty-something professional or a grandmother of 12."

222: Geneen Roth: Women Food and God

June 9, 2020

Geneen Roth is the author of ten books, including the new This Messy Magnificent Life and New York Times bestsellers When Food Is Love, Lost and Found, and Women Food and God, as well as The Craggy Hole in My Heart and the Cat Who Fixed It

Join her December retreat:   https://retreats.geneenroth.com/december-online/ 

Over the past thirty years, she has worked with  thousands of people in her groundbreaking workshops and retreats and has appeared on numerous national shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, 20/20, the Today show, Good Morning America, and The View. She lives in California with charms of hummingbirds; her husband Matt; and Izzy the fabulous, eating-disordered dog.

Geneen Roth's pioneering books were among the first to link compulsive eating and perpetual dieting with deeply personal and spiritual issues that go far beyond food, weight and body image. Rather than pushing away the "crazy" things we do, Geneen's work proceeds with the conviction that our actions and beliefs make exquisite sense, and that the way to transform our relationship with food, our body, and so much more in our life is to be open, curious and kind with ourselves -- instead of punishing, impatient and harsh.

216: Latoya Shauntay Snell: Running, Racism, and the Call to LISTEN

216: Latoya Shauntay Snell: Running, Racism, and the Call to LISTEN

May 19, 2020

I asked Latoya to come on the podcast to talk about running and body image, sure. BUT I really wanted to talk about racism. As a woman who has enjoyed not only privilege in traditional sense, but white privilege, I want to listen. I want to understand. I really wanted to talk about Ahmaud Arbery and the things that have been happening in our country that white people don't understand, can't understand. That I contend that we SHOULD try to LISTEN, LEARN and really HEAR.

I knew that she was not a voice for "all black people," but I do know that I wanted to hear her perspective, as a black woman. I wanted to LISTEN.  

This is one of the most powerful conversations ever on the podcast. We got honest, real and I am grateful she was so open with me and my audience. Onward to more LISTENING.

Thank you, Latoya.

215: Lauren McGoodwin: Power Moves & Career Contessa

215: Lauren McGoodwin: Power Moves & Career Contessa

May 17, 2020

Lauren founded Career Contessa in 2013 after experiencing a gap in career development resources for women who might be job searching, soul searching, leading and managing, or trying to find new ways to advance within their careers. With women accounting for more than 50% of the workforce and the workforce being less defined than ever before, it seemed crazy (and outdated) that a resource for us didn't exist. 

Formerly, Lauren was a University Recruiter for Hulu focused on hiring, employer branding, and program management. Lauren has a Bachelors in Education from the University of Oregon and a Masters in Communication Management from the University of Southern California where she wrote her thesis on millennials and career resources.

When not Contessa-ing, you can find Lauren walking so she meets her 10,000 steps/day goal in Redondo Beach, CA where she lives with her husband.

213: Jen Hatmaker: Fierce, Free and Full of Fire

213: Jen Hatmaker: Fierce, Free and Full of Fire

May 11, 2020

Jen Hatmaker joined my community for a LIVE recording of the podcast via Zoom. We covered all the bases, y'all. From body image to the Enneagram (Jen's a 3, I'm an 8), to "the truth will set you free" and how The King's Daughters often present the biggest challenges. We talk grace, forgiveness, self-awareness; criticism and pain; community and finding new friendships. Two powerful questions from audience members, Kimberlea and Rebekah, round off the show. 

Jen writes: "I believe women living in freedom are the answer to all that ails society. When we are exactly who we are, how we are, where we are, as we were always meant to be, women are the greatest gifts to this world. My whole life’s work is to serve women as they genuinely show up for their own lives. We need not fear the truth, or hard questions, or spiritual curiosity, or challenging unjust systems; that is literally why we are here... You are beloved and necessary and good."

A special thanks to Jen for her time, grace, wisdom... and all of her fierceness that is giving women a voice and a space to be heard.
