100. Getting Out of the Habit of Overexercising with Meg Davis

Getting Out of the Habit of Overexercising

In This Episode

When you’re working on health and wellness, getting out of the habit of overexercising may seem counterintuitive to what you believe you should be doing. BUT, in this episode, we’re here to tell you why, in some cases, it’s exactly what you need to be doing.

Coach Meg is back and we’re talking all about exercise: how your all-or-nothing mentality is either preventing you from starting in the first place or has left you terrified of rest days, and how to find your happy medium.

Both Meg and I have experienced our fair share of attempting to maintain a lifestyle of quantity over quality when it comes to exercising and what we’ve learned is that it’s simply not sustainable in the long term.

When the goal of exercise is to continue exercising throughout life, there comes a time when we have to evaluate whether the approach we are taking is supporting that goal or not. What we’ve both found is that when overexercising leads to things like burnout, constant fatigue and even injury then we aren’t working towards the goal of longevity.

Something Meg says her clients come to realize when they scale back on their exercise is that often they will see more progress than when they were spending hours of their lives each day in the gym, because for the first time they’re exercising with intentionality.

You’ll Learn:
✅about when we realized we needed to get out of the habit of overexercising
✅the value of quality over quantity when it comes to exercise
✅why it’s important to not allow overexercising to “become your identity”
✅how we speak to (and about) ourselves can help break the habit of overexercising

139. Mastering Resilience (Why It Matters & How To Do It)

How old were you when you first thought about changing your body?

If some of the first weight or body image related experiences from your childhood – like attending WW meetings as a 12-year-old – are still having an impact on how you view yourself today, this episode is for you.

I’m reviewing Mastering Resilience, by Lorry Leigh Belhumeur, and sharing the steps you can take to not only heal yourself but ensure that you break the cycle of self-loathing for the next generation.

Learning to use those adverse experiences to fuel your desire to make positive changes to become the happiest, healthiest, and most confident version of yourself is the first step in changing your story.

138. Phases of Progress

Have you ever heard the saying, “If it was easy, everyone would do it”?

This is true for almost anything that’s worth doing – starting a new job, renovating your house, and, yes, even losing weight.

The truth is that it’s usually not the end goal that makes everything feel unattainable, but rather the phases of progress you have to go through to reach your goal.

I know we all want our progress to be fast, easy, and predictable.

But it’s just not.

Every single one of us works through four phases of progress, some of which are much more trying than others.

I’m breaking them all down in this episode to help normalize exactly what it looks like to make progress that lasts.
