Have you ever felt like striving for joyful movement seems impossible? Joyful movement can have a lot of pressure when you’ve come from a place of hating exercise for such a long time.  The conversation today explores how we can ditch that all or nothing, black and white mindset that comes with exercise, and how to navigate that grey area between hating exercise and loving it, between diet culture and anti-diet culture, to finding neutrality with movement recognizing that not all exercise is going to be comfortable or easy.Today's conversation features 3 trainers and 1 therapist, all ladies whom have been on the show before:Stef Bender is a certified Personal Trainer with a passion for power lifting, intuitive eating and body image coaching.

EP 25 - I Never Thought I would Be Happy with My Body without Losing Weight - With Sarah Miller
Life is too short to count calories and to try and squeeze into your skinny jeans two sizes too small for comfort. But it's not your fault if you are neck deep in believing your true life will start once you reach a thinner destination. We have all been conditioned to believe this through thin actors in Hollywood to magazines claiming you need to earn your bikini. Today on the show I am interviewing Sarah Miller, mom of 3, who is a graduate of the Nourished Moms, Healthy Kids program July 2021. Today she shares her journey from body dissatisfaction to body neutrality throughout the 12 weeks and how she has applied the principles she learned in the NMHK program to her family life. The language her children are growing up around is now inclusive, body-positive and empowering. Sarah shared this about the Nourished Moms, Healthy Kids Program: I can honestly say that this program has changed my life. Jolyn, you are such a wonderful teacher. Your enthusiasm, energy, and passion for this topic is contagious. I never thought I would be happy with my body without losing weight or looking a certain way, but I am happy and now enjoy being active because it's fun and makes me feel great. Thank you for all of it.- Sarah MillerI am so thrilled to present this interview to you today.Mentioned in the show: Webinar: New Years Resolutions that Don't Suck the Life out of You!

EP 21 - Fitness is holistic

EP 21 - Fitness is holistic
The word 'fitness' means anything from health & wellbeing to 'being able to perform a role or task'(Wikipedia), yet when we hear the word, most of us have been conditioned to imagine a thin and toned gym rat who is smiling while doing burpees. Most of us assume if we don't dedicate 3-4 days to working out at the gym, we aren't 'fit'. But what if being 'fit' meant more than physical? This week I created the Core Values for my business and I wanted to elaborate on why physical fitness is only ONE element to fitness.  What you will learn from today's episode:What does fitness mean?How can you be 'fit' in your 4 bodies?What creates sustainable motivation?One easy way to be more present in your body in everyday life.Core Value #4: Fitness is Holistic. Fitness is about well-being in our 4 bodies: Mental, Emotional, Spiritual and Physical. We believe it is imperative that we learn to trust our innate wisdom and body cues, challenge negative self-talk by choosing curiosity over judgment, and bridge the gap between our inner and outer self to create our most authentic life. Having a healthy relationship with movement means when we take away the guilt and aesthetic pursuits behind moving our bodies, we are better able to connect to ourselves and focus on ways in which exercise enhances and enriches our life (i.e., better sleep, stress reduction, and improved overall sense of well-being). We believe that finding joy in movement is essential, but recognize that not all movement will be easy or comfortable. Self-compassion goes a long way when starting a fitness routine and oftentimes challenging ourselves physically rewards us in other areas of life.
