In This Episode

EA Head Coach, Meg, is back with Esther on this week’s podcast and they’re talking about all the things they’ve learned from their combined ~30 years of consistently exercising.

Learn about the evolution of their fitness, how they’ve found balance & happiness through their workouts, some hard truths they’ve learned along the way, and how to start identifying as a fit & healthy person, yourself.

Esther and Meg share where their fitness journeys began and how they have had to shift focus with different seasons of life to find what worked best for each one.

Meg walks us though her evolution from starting with no exercise background to competing in bodybuilding competitions to now following a program that has her doing less with more intentionality and consistency.

Esther talks about how her background started with mostly cardio at the Y when she was in high school to spending a lot of time in CrossFit boxes until she had her son and realized she needed to find a balance with exercise that fit into her life’s new time constraints with a baby.

The coaches talk about how being consistent is one of the most important things they’ve learned about exercising.

Esther tells us that when you start to follow through on the exercise commitments you make to yourself, you start to see that consistency spill over into other areas of your life. She reiterates something that they spoke about in Episode 57 – you need to build a reputation with yourself as someone who follows through on their commitments to see better outcomes.

Beyond the importance of consistency, Meg says that, “One of the biggest things that I have learned is that motivation is not reliable to get you to do the work and that you actually create motivation by putting in the action first. And once you start getting those results, once you start feeling how good it feels to work out, that’s what breeds the motivation to continue.”

Throughout the episode, Esther and Meg impart these and other bits of wisdom they’ve gained along the way that has made exercise more enjoyable and helped them stay consistent over the years.

You’ll Learn:
✅ why focused, intentional, and strategic exercise is important
✅ the importance of following through on the commitments you make to yourself
✅ how to get moving when you’re not feeling motivated
✅ one of the most important components of exercise that you probably aren’t thinking about.

216. {Bite-Sized Episode} Diet “rules” that actually work

Most people like weight loss programs with really straightforward rules.

We want to know what’s good and what’s bad. What’s ok and what’s not. To be confident that as long as we’re following the rules, we’ll lose weight.

The problem is that following rules-heavy programs doesn’t actually put you in a good position to maintain your results without, well, continuing to follow them.

Tune in to learn which “rules” actually work and how to create them in your own life.

Ep. 215 Getting Yourself Unstuck with Kerry Tepedino

Kerry’s rock bottom moment – much like mine – came after binge eating a jar of peanut butter.

When she realized that her binging and purging was going to kill her, she started learning as much as she could about changing the patterns that were keeping her stuck.

What she learned along the way isn’t just applicable to food, but to making a positive change in any area of our lives.
