The Path to Confidence

232: The Path to Confidence

My clients and students all say they have different reasons for working with me: they want to get stronger, they want to shed fat, they want to be able to keep up with their kids or grandkids etc.

But really…

They all want the same thing, more confidence.

Confidence that they will keep the promises they make to themselves.
Confidence to move through the world in a way that feels honest and true to them.
Confidence to take on the things that have been on their heart for years
Confidence to trust their own knowing and make decisions for themselves.

Confidence is the REAL byproduct of the skills and strategies I teach women and, in this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, I am going to teach you the pathway for developing more of it too.

Have a listen! And please share it with a woman who could benefit from the message.

Start Your Day With the End in Mind: Navigating Through the Storm

201: Start Your Day With the End in Mind: Navigating Through the Storm

Yes, life is a little (or a lot) disorienting right now and we are being challenged in new ways.

It is all too easy to focus on everything that is wrong with our current reality and why it shouldn’t be happening. The sooner you stop fighting reality (because let’s be honest you will never win that argument) the easier you will be able to navigate your way through it.

No, we cannot control what is happening out in the world (pandemic) but we can control how we live this day despite what is going on in the world.

You can control how you show up today.
You can control how you spend your time.
You can control how you feel
You can control what you choose to focus on.

And in this episode, I teach you one of the most powerful practices I know to help you do just that.

Living In Alignment With Your Food Philosophy And Why It Matters

198: Living In Alignment With Your Food Philosophy And Why It Matters

​In the age of diet dogma and copious amounts of nutrition information available at your fingertips, I think it is more important than ever to turn inwards and ask yourself what is working for you.

What is your food philosophy and are you living in alignment with it?

Surprisingly, although many women can quickly tell you their food beliefs, they aren’t necessarily living in line with those beliefs.

Check out this episode to get clarity around your own beliefs about food and examine if those beliefs are serving you or not.

Commitment and Why You Need to Understand the Depth of Yours

197: Commitment and Why You Need to Understand the Depth of Yours

When it comes to health in modern-day culture, we have a commitment issue. The truth is, you will never learn to be consistent if you don’t learn to commit.

We commit to marriages.
We commit to our kids.
We commit to our careers.
We commit to our retirement funds.

When it comes to our health? Not so much.

Think about how your health would improve if you could commit to improving it with the depth that you have committed to other areas of your life?

In this episode, I talk about why understanding your level of commitment is so important to improving your health and even give you questions to ask yourself to better understand the depth of your commitments to yourself.

Unraveling the Code to Confidence

195: Unraveling the Code to Confidence

As someone who has worked in the women’s wellness space for more than 20 years now, I have come to see improving health as an exercise in self-leadership. Because to improve your health, be it mental, physical or spiritual, you must willing to better understand yourself and have trust in yourself and your abilities.

Self-confidence, I believe, is an invaluable part of self-leadership, because it is the trust we have in ourselves to follow through with the things that we say are important to us.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I share insights from my own experience of helping women elevate their self-confidence and from my recent read of The Confidence Code: The Science & Art of Self-Assurance – What Women Should Know by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman.
