Episode 94: Don’t Believe All Your Thoughts

Wait a minute – you shouldn’t believe everything you think? Aren’t your thoughts true? They sure seem to be the truth.

Thoughts podcast 94

Where do your thoughts even come from? What happens if you question your thoughts? And while we’re at it, what’s the difference between a thought, a belief, and a feeling?

We make a lot of assumptions every day – about our thoughts, our beliefs, our feelings, and our reality.

There is so much going on in your mind – all the time – that’s true. But you have the power to choose which thoughts to pay attention to. And what you choose affects your reality. But how do you choose?

Today we’ll talk about where your thoughts come from, how to know which ones to believe, and how to take back your power over them.

Listen to this coaching session to learn how your thoughts create your reality. Then use that knowledge to start creating an even better life for yourself – one thought at a time.

Episode 91: How to Handle Your Weight Loss Obstacles

Episode 91: How to Handle Your Weight Loss Obstacles

When you undertake any goal, especially a big one like changing the way you eat to lose your extra weight, you’re bound to run into obstacles.

And, you’ll also run into excuses.

Obstacles podcast 91

Whatever you run into, how you view these roadblocks will either help you figure things out, or give up.

Of course, you don’t want to give up, right? So, let’s see the difference between your excuses, which keep you stuck, and the obstacles you face, which inspire you to find a way around them.

And, we’ll talk about the idea of using a role model who’s doing what you’d love to be doing, to inspire you. Do you look at other women who can get themselves to do what you can’t, and wonder what the difference between you really is?

It’s the difference between the way they think, and the way you think. Instead of looking at others and feeling envy, let me show you how to be inspired and motivated into action when you see others a few steps ahead of you.

Let’s do this. No more stopping and giving up. Let’s figure out how to turn your excuses into obstacles that you can figure out and overcome.

Join me for this coaching session that will help you move ahead in your weight loss journey.

Episode 90: What Are Your Weight Loss Expectations?

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Episode 90: What Are Your Weight Loss Expectations?

When you set an important goal, like changing how you eat and learning to eat naturally, what do you expect?

Expectations podcast 90

What do you expect to happen? And how do you expect things to go?

If you’ve tried and failed at changing your mind and your body, odds are good that you haven’t managed your expectations.

Your expectations about how hard or how easy it might be. Expectations about how you will handle slips. And expectations about your abilities to literally change your mind.

I believe that managing your expectations at the beginning of a life-changing journey can make or break your end results.

And today, I’d like to coach you through taking a look at the expectations you have and show you how to edit those expectations so they work for you, and not against you.

Join me as we talk about your expectations in the world of weight loss.

Episode 89: Time Management Interview with Jill Farmer

Episode 89: Time Management Interview with Jill Farmer

You’re trying to make changes in your life. In how you eat. How you live. And basically, how you show up in this world.

Time podcast 89

And I’ll bet there have been times when you’ve said: “I can’t do it all! I just don’t have enough time!”

I understand. I’ve been there myself. And reading about time management (and trying to apply what I read) is one of my favorite pastimes.

So how do you do it? How do you find or make time for what is most important to you?

Join me and my guest, Jill Farmer, author of ‘There’s Not Enough Time… and Other Lies We Tell Ourselves’.

Here’s what we discuss:

  • What’s the most common complaint Jill hears from her clients?
  • Should we look at making a lifestyle change, like losing weight as a ‘to do’, or as a project?
  • Why is planning ahead important and how do you get yourself to do it?
  • How does perfectionism fit into how we manage our time?
  • Why is it so important to be able to say ‘no’?
  • And, what’s the biggest mistake people make when they are making a list of things to do?

I want to help you change, and change is made of up lots of actions and details.

Join me in this interview so you can learn to manage yourself better as you change.

Jill FarmerJill Farmer is the author of “There’s Not Enough Time… and Other Lies We Tell Ourselves” which debuted as a bestseller in the Time Management category on Amazon.

In 2015, The Washington Post named Jill to its 21-Day Time Hacker team as one of the top time experts in the country. Jill travels the U.S. delivering keynotes and teaching her acclaimed program for some of the top corporations and organizations in the world.

In addition to being a master certified life coach practicing since 2010, Jill Farmer is a wife and the mother of two daughters. For more than a decade, she was an Emmy Award winning consumer reporter and television anchor in St. Louis.

Jill is also the unsuccessful herder of the two worst-behaved dogs in the universe.

Episode 77: A Little Tough Love: Why It’s Important to Tackle Your Weight and Eating Issues

Episode 77: A Little Tough Love: Why It’s Important to Tackle Your Weight and Eating Issues

Do you ever ask yourself: Why bother? Why am I doing this? Who cares about my weight and my eating and what difference does it make?

Tough love podcast 77

Well, grab a seat because it’s time for a little tough love session, with your coach.

There are many important reasons for you to do several things:

  1. Accept yourself where you are.
  2. Conquer anything that uses up your thoughts and energy, taking you away from where you are meant to go.
  3. Always know that taking care of you is the foundation for a good, happy life.

I want you to stop trying to lose weight and change your eating if you’re doing it strictly for self-improvement.

But I do want you to not stop until you are where you want to be so you can do what you’re meant to do in the world.

Join me in this short and sweet tough love session. And for more tough love, listen to Episode 48.

Coming Soon!

Episode 71: Learn How to Trade Your Old Thought Loops for New Ones

Episode 71: Learn How to Trade Your Old Thought Loops for New Ones

If you’re like me and most of the people I work with privately and in my groups, you have certain thoughts that are your favorites.

Thought loops podcast 71

These thoughts go around and around in your mind, playing as often as the Top 10 songs on your local radio station.

The problem is, that many of these thought loops don’t help you. In fact, many of them keep you stuck and repeating old harmful patterns over and over.

Today in your coaching session we’re going to take a close look at your thought loops.

We’ll talk about what a thought loop actually is, how to know whether it helps or it hurts you, and why these loops are SO hard to break out of.

Of course, we will also talk about the way out: how to wake up to your own thought loops and decide what stays and what gets ditched, and why.

Join me in this coaching session and let’s take apart your Top 10 list and see if it’s worthy to be floating around in that beautiful mind of yours.

Episode 70: Why Do I Keep Saying “Screw It!”?

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Episode 70: Why Do I Keep Saying “Screw It!”?

Welcome back! I hope you are enjoying these coaching sessions as much as I am.

Screw it podcast 70

Have you ever reached the point in your eating and weight loss journey, where things aren’t going well, and you say: “The heck with it!”

Or, “I just can’t do this!” Or, “I’ll just start tomorrow.” Or, “Something must be wrong with me.”

All these thoughts have one big thing in common: they stop you from moving forward and take you totally off track. They keep you stuck in a pattern of failure.

All are versions of screw it!

These are habitual negative ways of thinking when things don’t go as planned. And they all prevent you from achieving what you want most: peaceful eating and, for many of you, weight loss as well.

So today, I’m going to coach you about this common thought of screw it. We’ll talk about when it comes up, what it might sound like in your own mind, why you think it at all, and, finally, how to stop saying, “Who cares!” and what to think instead.

I will help you stop what constantly derails you: your seemingly innocent thoughts.

I will see you in the session!

Episode 69: Where Do I Start Making Changes for Weight Loss?

Do you love these coaching sessions but don’t exactly know where to start?

Start podcast 69

Here is your answer: You start right here. You start with getting really clear on what your problem is. Define it.

Episode 1: The Difference Between Emotional Eating, Binge Eating and Compulsive Overeating

You’d be amazed at how many clients over-exaggerate and generalize their problems. I want the facts, just the facts.

Once you’ve done that, I want you to get crystal clear on what’s gone wrong for you in the past. If you’re not sure, you’ll be doomed to repeating your mistakes over and over again. And we both know how useful that is!

Episode 2: Clearing Your Path to Weight Loss Success!

And then, create your project. Project YOU.

Episode 5: Working on Project YOU: Creating Your Weight Loss Blueprint

You can certainly do this. I’m certain. And this podcast will help you take the first steps.

Episode 62: Are You Having a Bad Day? Listen to This Before You Eat!

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Episode 62: Are You Having a Bad Day? Listen to This Before You Eat!

Are you having a bad day? The reason I ask is that with my clients, so many overeating episodes begin with a ‘bad day’.

Bad day podcast 62

So, what makes a bad day? Does it have anything to do with you? And do you have any control over how it goes down?

Yes. Yes. And yes.

You have a lot to do with how your day goes. And how you feel at the end of a day.

It is so connected to how you think about your day. If you’ve been listening to me for a while, I’ll bet this isn’t a surprise.

Our day is what we make it. So, pull up your cozy chair and listen as I coach you on how to have fewer bad days. And what to do when you truly have a bad one.
