In part 2 of our series, Jenny Mire explained the definition of emotional eating and its ramifications for our overall health. She provided scenarios where emotional eating is considered manageable and situations where it becomes an eating disorder. She also explains why it mostly affects women and offered tips to stop emotional eating even before it starts.

In this episode, Jenny focuses on the topic of self-sabotage. She defines self-sabotage and how it can negatively affect not just our physical health, but also our mental well-being. She shares her story, her struggles, and the many solutions she found that helped her overcome them. She also explains the importance of knowing what your struggles are to keep yourself from self-sabotaging.

 

"Self-sabotage is never, ever worth it.” Jenny Mire

  • What self-sabotage is and why you don't realize you're doing it.
  • How does self-sabotage happen?
  • How to you work through self-sabotage and overcome it.

Brian and Carrie Grasso are the type of personal trainers who help clients have the right mindset to accomplish their goals. Brian has worked alongside professional athletes in the fitness industry for over 20 years and realized most of the work involved mental and emotional stability. Carrie, on the other hand, quit being a personal trainer just three weeks in, finding out personal training has a lot more to do with counselling than actual training. They are now accomplished mindset coaches and considered experts in their field. Their business focus is due to the void in the fitness industry regarding the intricacies of mindsets.

In today’s episode, Brian and Carrie share how they found the path to linking mindset and fitness and why reality doesn’t exist the way we think it does. They explain the limits we put on ourselves and the importance of recognizing the negativities in our lives rather than pushing them away.

 

"Influence is the silent killer people do not recognize; they do not recognize how much influence plays a role in every part of their lives." – Brian Grasso

 

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why Carrie cautions those who have a tendency to flip negatives to positives.
  • The usual excuses people say about changing themselves.
  • Why internal dialogue is the primary limit.
  • Is the human brain conditioned to be negative?
  • The limiting factor the motivational industry doesn't understand.
  • The four stages of learning that everyone goes through.
  • The recurring theme in most entrepreneurs and how it affects the mindset.
  • What does it mean to "invest with your wallet?”
  • How much more challenging is it to start a completely different life for someone in their 30's and beyond?

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Everyone is only really limited by their own self.
  • Reality doesn't exist, our perception of reality exists.
  • We don’t always know what we don’t know.

Chris Heuisler is a Philadelphia native, a sub-3-hour marathoner, and the official RunWESTIN Concierge for Westin Hotels & Resorts. He is a veteran marathoner, having run in 29 states and is attempting to run one marathon in every state. Chris began coaching when he realized he wanted to help both new and competitive runners get to their best running form and keep them from making the same mistake he made. Before he became part of Westin, he was one of only 75 personal trainers across the United States to reach Tier 4 Coach status for Equinox Fitness Clubs, a significant achievement as he was in charge of coaching other coaches on best practices.

In this episode, Chris shares his story on how he became a passionate runner and his professional career. He teaches us what it means to be a runner as well as what being a runner is not. He explains why you are allowed to call yourself a runner even if you don’t run marathons, the importance of doing what you love regardless of what people think, and why you should always train for the races you signed up for.

 

"Running does not define you; running is what refines you.” Chris Heuisler

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How and when he started pursuing a fitness lifestyle.
  • What is the true definition of a runner?
  • What would he change if he knew back then what he knows now?
  • What it means to be consistent in your running.
  • The importance of accountability when it comes to fitness.
  • Who shouldn't pick up running?
  • What speed he usually runs in.
  • What is the RunWESTIN program?

 

Key Takeaways:

  • One run does not make or break who you are as a runner. It's just part of the process.
  • It doesn't matter how you start your fitness journey or what exercise you prefer to do so long as you start.
  • You don't have to run a race to be a runner.
  • Always train for your races regardless of whether you're a running veteran or a beginner. You owe it to the people who couldn't get a spot despite their hard work.

Dr. Izabella Wentz is a pharmacist with a passion to spreading awareness of lifestyle interventions as well as the root causes of thyroid diseases. She is the author of The New York Times bestselling books “Hashimoto’s Protocol” and “Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.” Interestingly, she was never really interested in the thyroid gland in school or even after graduation.

It wasn’t until Izabella was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s herself in 2009 – after 10 years of confusing symptoms – when she decided to try to find ways to treat her disease. She never wanted to give up and just let the disease take control of her life, that there had to be a way to make herself feel better.

In today’s episode, Izabella tells us all about what Hashimoto’s disease is, the usual prescriptions that don’t really work, and the type of interventions she recommends to her patients.

 

"Whether we're 25, 35, or 65, we shouldn't feel horrible. We shouldn't feel exhausted.” - Dr. Izabella Wentz

 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How she started her journey into better health and fitness.
  • How her life was before she found out she had Hashimoto's.
  • The usual drugs prescribed that only offer band aid solutions.
  • Why she doesn't recommend working with an endocrinologist when you have Hashimoto's.
  • Does she have patients who are able to solve their thyroid issues without a synthetic hormone?
  • When should we take thyroid hormones?
  • Why is Hashimoto's so common? What is it that really causes Hashimoto's?
  • Will you always have Hashimoto's once you're diagnosed?
  • Is Hashimoto's more prevalent in the US and Western culture than other countries?

 

Key Takeaways:

  • It's easier to prevent damage to the thyroid gland than to regrow a thyroid.
  • The ones that heal and thrive are the ones who take charge of their own health.
  • We should have an open mind in figuring out what's best for your body.
