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.

Do you wish someone could just give you the magic key to the kingdom and tell you what to eat?

Worst to eat podcast 59

How much of your life does binge eating consume? If you want your life back, we know exactly what you need to do. And, you can do this. Find out more here.

So many of my clients want just that. They don’t want to work, they just want the answer to the lifelong question: What do I have to do to lose weight?

If it is, here is the answer: Eat like a naturally slim woman.

Manage your mind and your emotions so you don’t eat your feelings. And learn how to take the best care of yourself.

That’s right. The basics.

If your next response is: I already know that, then this coaching session is perfect for you.

Join me as I lead you in a brief coaching session and show you why the basics work and how you might be sabotaging yourself without realizing it.

Episode 58: Want Weight Loss? Aim for Imperfection!

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Episode 58: Want Weight Loss? Aim for Imperfection!

I can just hear you now. No. No. I can’t aim for imperfection. I’m different. I’m special. I’m always at the head of the class. I HAVE to do things perfectly.

Imperfection podcast 58

How much of your life does binge eating consume? If you want your life back, we know exactly what you need to do. And, you can do this. Find out more here.

My dear listener, no, you don’t. Your perfectionism is holding you back from doing great things.

Learning new ways to eat and feel and think all take practice. Just like a baby learning how to walk.

I know you’re special. But you still have to go through the learning curve. And that means doing things imperfectly.

And then practicing and practicing until you do them really, really well.

Let me coach you. Let me show you why you wish for that A+. And what learning really means. And specifically what’s required to learn new ways to eat and think.

And then we can talk about why learning new eating skills MUST be imperfect. And, exactly what steps to take.

And last, I will coach you and show you how to keep moving, and not stop and give up, right through imperfection.

B- anyone? Join me. It will be good.

Episode 57: Want to Lose Weight? Stop Saying These 4 Words!

Episode 57: Want to Lose Weight? Stop Saying These 4 Words!

Have you ever listened to, or read, the answer to your eating challenge, and thought: “I already know that!”?

Well, if you did, you certainly aren’t alone. But did you know how poisonous those four little words are?

Words podcast 57

THE FREEDOM COACHING GROUP: If you’ve ever dreamed about having your own personal coach to work on your eating with you, you’re closer than you think. My coaching group is happening now!

Those words keep you searching for a magical solution. Those words keep you stuck looking outside of yourself, instead of inside at what you’re doing, and what you’re thinking.

If you want to end your weight and eating struggle, you’ve got to start by being honest with yourself.

Instead of thinking, I already know that… I want you to be honest and think: “If I already know that, why aren’t I doing it?”

If you’re a regular listener, you know that your thoughts create all your habits and all your actions.

If you want to do things differently, eat differently and even create different moods, you’ll need to start catching yourself when your brain says: I already know that!

And in this episode I will show you exactly how to do this.

Join me, and get more in charge of your thoughts so you can get yourself to really do what you know you should.

Episode 55: How to Eat at a Buffet When You’re Trying to Lose Weight

Episode 55: How to Eat at a Buffet When You’re Trying to Lose Weight

Hi there! Do you ever eat in a restaurant?

Of course, you do! These days we all eat out more than ever before. And one of the most fearful eating experiences when eating out is dealing with a buffet.

Buffet podcast 55

You know, those restaurants where there are long, long tables of food and all of it looks and smells delicious.

You know that in the past, the buffet signaled the end of your self-control and the beginning of regret and shame.

But there’s a new way to look at an eating event like a buffet. Or any restaurant meal. Or dinner at a friend’s house where you have no choice about what is served.

In this coaching session, we are going to talk about a new way to not only eat at a buffet, but a new way to think about buffets.

With this new mindset, you will be in charge of yourself and your eating no matter what’s in front of you.

So get cozy and grab a notebook, and get ready to be coached.

Episode 51: The Best Question to Ask Yourself that Helps Solve Your Weight Loss Issues

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Episode 51: The Best Question to Ask Yourself that Helps Solve Your Weight Loss Issues

Do you ever listen to the thoughts that go around and around in your mind?

Question podcast 51

You probably are so engaged with the self-talk you always do, that you don’t pay that much attention to it anymore.

But, this could be dangerous because your self-talk runs your inner life.

And your outer world is basically run by your inner world. Good reason to take a listen to that podcast in your head, right?

Pull up a chair. Here’s what we’ll cover in our coaching session today:

  • How your self-talk influences your entire life.
  • What your mind does when you ask it a question.
  • Why the type of question you ask is so important.
  • What is the absolute worst question you can ask yourself?
  • And when you ask this question, why do you tend to do it over and over?
  • What’s the next ‘one level up’ question, that might hurt or might help?
  • And finally, what is the best question you can ask that will help you figure things out?

Listen as I coach you on how to recognize these questions that run in the background all the time. Learn how to notice what you’re doing. And how to start rejecting those dangerous questions you’ve always asked, and substitute much more helpful ones.

I will see you in our coaching session!

Goin’ Gray!

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

Woman coloring her hair to remove grayAllow me to clarify for a moment here.

The hair coloring process of Cookie Rosenblum will not be stopping anytime soon.

Nope. Covering my gray hairs will continue indefinitely.

The gray I’m talking about is beneath my crowning glory. And yours too.

It’s your mindset.

You know how you (and a million others) may have a tiny tendency to think in black and white?

Here’s how it goes:

  • You see yourself as either a good person or a terrible person.
  • Either you’re on a strict diet or eating everything that doesn’t have a pulse.
  • You might be glued to your couch eating chips, or you find yourself training for a marathon.

Sound familiar?

Well, here’s the deal.

Nothing is all good.

Or all bad.

Especially not you.

Striving to be all good all the time is guaranteed to do nothing but make you feel bad about yourself.

And why would you want to do that?

Conversely, telling yourself you’re a terrible person because something you tried wasn’t perfect puts you down that slippery slope of self-judgment.

Neither extreme works.

Neither extreme feels good.

So, go for gray.

Be okay with being just okay.

And know that being okay doesn’t mean giving up, not trying at all, or doing your worst.

It means, simply, that sometimes it’s okay to just do okay.

Not great.

Not terrible.

But okay is okay.

Ep 45 Why Cleaning Out Your Closet Can Help You Lose Weight

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

Episode 45: Why Cleaning Out Your Closet Can Help You Lose Weight

I’m so glad you’re here! Today our coaching session is all about two concepts that seem so unrelated, but are very much connected.

Closet podcast 45

Did you ever imagine that cleaning out your home, your closet or even your kitchen can help you see what’s holding you back from permanent weight loss?

The answer is: they are all connected.

In this coaching session, I will show you:

  • Why many of us are drawn to all kinds of organizing, and why it feels so good to clear out the clutter.
  • How your closet is like your mind, only it stores different things.
  • What happens when you have an overstuffed closet AND an overstuffed mind, with things that don’t serve you anymore.
  • How to know what to keep and what to toss, both from your thinking and your closet.
  • Why you need some clear, uncluttered space in that mind of yours.
  • And how to figure out how to keep things clear, once you’ve reorganized.
  • Want to be a new you? Then you need to decide what works, what doesn’t and what to do about it. All from the perspective of the kind of woman you wish to be.
  • And finally, take a leap and choose one thought about yourself that makes you feel bad, and holds you back, and let it go.

You can do this! Do you want something that’s been challenging to obtain? Let’s clear the clutter first.
