||CleanEp23 STOP Dieting! Intuitive Eating with Patti Green||Restricting food led me to major mental and physical anguish over the years. When I was diagnosed with an eating disorder in my mid-30’s I slowly came around to the benefits of not dieting! It’s been a major shift for me - in mindset, body acceptance, how I teach fitness and even market CareerFit Mom. I’m not perfect and have a ways to go. I still find myself feeling drawn to new diets, or thinking of upping my exercise intensity, or wanting to promote the aesthetics of exercise over the health benefits. Learning more about Intuitive Eating from Patti is exciting. Her lifestyle and mental state around food and exercise are calming. Patti introduced me to the 10 principles of Intuitive Eating and provided a ton of resources if you are compelled to go deeper with this topic. Adopting an intuitive approach to food and exercise could be the healthiest resolution you make for 2019! For more information on Intuitive Eating, including a list of books and podcasts that Patti recommends please visit our show notes at www.careerfitmom.ca/episode23.||11/29/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanEp21 What it Means to Flourish with Teresa Neves||Achieving goals means getting comfortable with growth. It’s actually the person you become on the way to achieving your goal that is the real benefit - not getting the thing that you wanted. I interviewed my good friend Teresa Neves about the Growth Coaching she does as a psychotherapist. Teresa is also a fitness professional, and a long term instructor with CareerFit Mom. She developed a fitness and mindset program called Flourish that takes participants beyond a workout for their bodies. She taps them into their resilience and appreciation of all the positive in their lives to connect with living in a meaningful, joyful way.

My talented cousin, Matthew Verboom, educated me on a therapy known as Muscle Activation Techniques. He took me through an assessment and did some work that absolutely helped my body move correctly. In essence, I’ve become more fit because I’ve got improved Range of Motion and decreased pain! MAT is about reconnecting your brain to your body so your muscles work the way they’re meant to. In this episode, Matt talks more about how he came to be a MAT practitioner and what someone can expect through the treatment process.

||CleanEp8 Use NEAT to Improve Your Health & Burn Up More Calories||NEAT stands for Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis. It's the caloric burn that comes from movement beyond your workouts. Everyday life activities like walking your kids to school, pacing while on the phone, and walking up stairs. I'm interested in NEAT because I want to incorporate more movement into my life now that I'm no longer teaching 7+ fitness classes a week! My lifestyle has changed and it is more sedentary than ever before. But it is actually a lot more normal - most of us have desk jobs! Learn what NEAT is and be inspired to make one change this week to build a healthy habit that increases your energy expenditure.||4/28/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanEp5 Creating Career Abundance||If you want to grow and expand your professional life, this episode gives actionable ideas to create abundance and positivity in your career.

But not long ago, she was in a very low energy place in her career. Through a series of easy to implement activities, you can create abundance in your career. It starts by getting into alignment with what you're grateful for, what you want, your skills and strengths...then through repetition you'll start to enhance your career perspective and attract amazing opportunities to you. For those of you I'm working with who aren't in a high energy place in your career, know that my other client was once thinking similar thoughts which only kept her stagnating in her toxic work environment. Now she's has a great career outlook! It's working! Listen to this episode and create that dynamic shift for yourself.||3/27/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
