105: The power of labels and identity with Caitlin Boyle (Healthy Tipping Point) *Throws confetti into the air* I’m SO SO pumped for this week’s episode and so thrilled to welcome a good friend to the show: Caitlin Boyle, whom many of you may know from the very popular blog Healthy Tipping Point.  Caitlin is one of the OG healthy living bloggers, and I’m so thankful that the blog world introduced me to her. Her blog was one of the first things I checked each day for many years, and I always loved that she shared glimpses into her life, recipes, questions of the day, and even covered controversial topics. She stopped blogging regularly back in 2015, and after a 7 year hiatus, she wrote a couple of new posts and the internet rejoiced. She’s one of the smartest people I know, and I’m thankful to have her as a blog friend and real-life friend. I asked her if she would join me on the podcast, and was so excited when she said yes. We spent a lot of the episode chatting about a topic that’s so prevalent today: identity and labels. We talk about: - the power of labels - the pros and cons of having an “identity" - the fact that it’s OK to change your mind with new information - how we can better understand those who don’t agree with us - what it felt like to close the book on her blog and drop the “blogger” identity - what she’s been up to since she blogging days - Operation Beautiful and what it would look like today and so.much.more. Here’s a little bit more about Caitlin if you’re not familiar with her: Caitlin Boyle is the author of the Healthy Tipping Point, which covered healthy living topics from 2008-2014. She’s been on a 7 year hiatus from blogging but returns to the blog to share some life updates and musings. She’s a mom of two and the founder of Operation Beautiful. Some of my all-time favorite posts that she’s created: The mommy wars That one time she was on the Today Show for Operation Beautiful Will we or won’t we?

104: Things that have helped my anxiety Today’s podcast episode was a common request in my 100 podcast episodes post, so I thought I’d cover this topic today. It’s also something that I feel has been magnified in some way or another for the past few years, so think it’s a relevant topic for this week.  Today, I’m chatting about my experience with anxiety and some of the things that have helped me over time. PLEASE keep in mind that I’m not a therapist or a doctor. This is not medical advice and I’m just sharing my experience. If you struggle with anxiety or any mental health issues (or if you just want to chat to a trusted third party who can give you advice!) seek out the help of a local certified therapist. I always lurk the reviews online when we first move to a new place. You deserve to feel great; please seek out the help you need to feel better!!   104: Things that have helped my anxiety As a first-born Type A perfectionist, I’ve had anxiety for as long as I can remember. When I was younger, I had a TV in my room and would fall asleep watching the news sometimes, which is the perfect way to brew some worry and anxiety. There was also some transition in our family, since my parents got divorced when I was in kindergarten, and I’ve just always been a worrier. My anxieties and worries have ranged from very mild, like deadlines, wanting specific details to be perfect, or wondering if someone is mad at me, to much bigger things, like a husband who was abroad fighting in a war (four times!), a baby with severe reflux who had stopped breathing on a couple of occasions, health concerns, and family stuff.  Something that has always helped me, no matter what I was going through: therapy.  I’ve been blessed to see some incredible therapists in my lifetime and think it can be SO helpful to have one in your back pocket, even if you don’t see them super regularly. It can feel a little weird and awkward at first, but I always leave each session feeling lighter, relieved, and like I have a plan. I wanted to note first that while NOTHING can replace traditional therapy, there are also some strategies that have also helped: - Exercise! The key is to do this in a way where you can recover easily and you aren’t perpetuating a constant flight or fight response in the body. Think about your personal “stress bucket,” and make sure that exercise isn’t the thing tipping it over. If you’re an anxious person, I would shift focus from intense and high-impact workouts (like bootcamp workouts and CrossFit), to more low-impact options like yoga, barre, walking, Pilates, moderate strength training, or dance.  - Bringing myself to the present moment. What are 3 things I can see? What are 3 things I can hear? What are 3 things I can touch? - Scheduled worry time each day. - Meditation. This is also tied to breathing. Shallow breathing can increase our heart rate and lead to increased feelings of anxiety.  - A daily walk, in the sun.  - Unloading all of your worries into a journal each night.  - Paying attention to fueling my body. - Sleeping at least 8 hours. If you need sleep tips, check out Sleep Smarter. - Delegating as many things as possible, as a decreased task load and mental to-do list can potentially decrease anxiety. What can you take off your plate so you longer have to think about it? For myself, it’s usually things like extra help with the kids when I have work deadlines, house cleaning, and certain meal prep items. What can you do to make your life easier? - Scheduling joy into my day. It’s SO easy to get wrapped up into the to-do list, chores, kid stuff, work life, that you get to bedtime and realize you’ve literally been working all day. It helps my anxiety immensely when I take 30 minutes each day to do something I enjoy, like read a book, sit on the patio and chat with the Pilot, play a board game or bake something with the girls, play the ukulele, etc. It seems counterintuitive, but when I have a little *fun* during the day, I’m SO much more productive during my work blocks.  - Focusing on gratitude. Even when things feel hard and ridiculous, there’s always something to be thankful for. When I shift my focus to gratitude, I feel more calm throughout the day. Every day, after I meditate, I write down three things that I’m thankful to have in my life. It takes less than 1 minute, and makes a huge difference in my day.  So tell me, friends: do you experience anxiety? What are some of the things you’ve found to help? xo Gina
103: Sustainable weight loss tips Hi friends! In today’s podcast episode, I’m chatting all about sustainable weight loss tips. This is a common request I receive on Instagram and while I did a series of stories on this subject, I feel like it would be better to have it all in one spot in a podcast episode! Disclaimer: because of today’s topic, I don’t recommend listening with kids in the car. They shouldn’t worry about how much they weigh, they should focus on playing with their friends and enjoy being a kid.  Something worth mentioning here: weight loss is not the holy grail of health. Do not tie your worth to how much gravitational pull your body has towards the earth. It is possible to be considered *overweight* and feel amazing, and also have beautiful blood work. It’s also possible to be *underweight* struggling with health complications and feeling horrible. This episode is about finding a healthy weight for yourself, whatever that looks like. For many people, weight loss can correlate with many health benefits, like improved energy, blood lipid profiles, insulin response, blood pressure, etc.  I’m a big believer in having goals that aren’t focused on soley weight loss. Take pictures, notice how you *feel*, focus on all of the health foundations (nutrition, sleep, hydration, stress management, mindset, fitness), write down your strength or speed improvements, get your body composition checked (DEXA or hydrostatic), celebrate your wins along the way. If your goal is weight loss, the key is to do this in a way that doesn’t make your hormones angry and give you the opposite result (increased inflammation, plateaus and/or weight gain) and do it in a sustainable way you can maintain. You want a method that doesn’t feel like you totally flipped your routine upside-down — to do this, build on habits over time. 103: Sustainable weight loss tips Here are some of my tips: - Assess your FULL routine (foundations of health, alcohol intake, stress, sleep) - Add where you can and continue to build over time - Give yourself patience and grace - look at failure as feedback - Some of the things I think are the most important (protein intake to preserve muscle tissue, sleep, hydration, trying new recipes, move more) - Only track servings/macros/calories if this is something you want to maintain - Have a deep *why* For all of the details, check out the full episode!!

SO excited for today’s podcast episode because it’s with a person that I respect greatly and have learned so much from him over time: Dr. Patrick Flynn! OG blog readers will remember Dr. Flynn from the days when I was trying to get pregnant with Liv. He became a member of my health team and helped me rebalance my hormones. I’ve worked with him on and off for the past 12 years! He has so much knowledge to share and I was thrilled when he said he’d come back on the podcast for another episode. You can check out our last episode together here! 102: The health effects of stress and tips for managing stress with Dr. Patrick Flynn Today we’re chatting all about STRESS and its impacts on the body. Stress is so prevalent in our fast-paced and busy lifestyles, and it’s a great reminder to slow down and try to mitigate the harmful types of stress when we can.  Here’s what we talk about in this episode: - What effect does stress have on the body and different types of stressors - How much does stress affect a person's health? - Examples of stress and how it affects people differently - Why is stress not a big topic in modern medicine? - Dr. Flynn’s approach to dealing with stress - Who is in control when it comes to stress? and so.much.more. Here’s more about Dr. Flynn: Dr. Patrick Flynn, DC is the founder of The Wellness Way clinics. In his youth, he experienced a series of events that led him to discover immune and neurological issues. This discovery prompted Dr. Flynn to begin his health journey, define his life purpose, and initiate the pursuit of his education. It ultimately led him to his dynamic career, where he has created a totally different approach to healthcare. He has attended numerous colleges and taken countless classes from prestigious learning institutions including Palmer College of Chiropractic, National Health Sciences, and the Harvard Medical School HMX fundamentals online certificate program in immunology, all of which have honed his focus on hormones and the immune system. Dr. Flynn is the bestselling author of the book, I Disagree. His wildly popular public seminar, The Hormone Connection, has been viewed by hundreds of thousands of people. He has trained thousands of doctors and his network is now comprised of over 80 clinics around the world.

101: Mineral imbalances, vitamin D, and supplements with Sara Garverick, IHP, PN1 Hi friends! I’m SO PUMPED to be welcoming a friend of mine to the podcast: Sara Garverick. Her Instagram page constantly blows my mind, and she shares so much knowledge and tips. Definitely give her a follow. 101: Mineral imbalances, vitamin D, and supplements with Sara Garverick, IHP, PN1 Here are some of the things we talk about in today’s episode: - Her personal background and what made her decide to become an Integrative Health Practitioner (the certs I’m taking right now! You can use FITNESSISTA for $100 off level one, and $250 off levels 1 and 2)) - Excess iron, even for those who may be considered anemic - How minerals and imbalances affect our hormones - Vitamin D, and why taking megadoses might not be the right answer And so.much.more. If you’re not familiar with Sara, here’s a little bit more about her: Sara Garverick began building a passion for health and wellness while working full time as a Mechanical Engineer for the U.S. Air Force.  In her mid-30s she learned of, and recovered from, the complicated symptoms associated with post birth control syndrome, through the works of Dr. Lara Briden and Dr. Jolene Brighten.  Over the years she encountered coworkers, friends and acquaintances struggling with various health conditions including low stomach acid, celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, hypothyroidism, gallbladder removal complications, knee replacements, cystic acne, PCOS, post birth control syndrome, infertility and more, and knew she wanted to better understand the body to help people believe their health diagnosis is not something to accept, but instead to improve or reverse. Bringing her analytical skillset (some might just say engineering and math nerdiness), and additional health science-related coursework from college, she is working hard to marry those approaches with her knowledge of functional medicine, integrative health (IHP Level 1 & 2), personal training (ACE), health coaching, nutrition (Precision Nutrition Level 1), strength training, bloodwork education, liver detoxification, mineral rebalancing and more, in order to help clients rebuild their body, health and confidence.     Contact her on Instagram @sara.ryan.wellness and her website at http://ryancconsulting.com/ RESOURCES:  If you don’t have the famous sauna blanket already, it’s one of my favorite things ever and feels SO good. Check it out here and use the code FITNESSISTA75 for $75 off!

099: Taking a leap with Daina Trout, Chief Mission Officer and Co-founder of Health-Ade Kombucha Hi friends! Happy Thursday! I have an all-new podcast episode up today and am so excited to share this one. I’ve been a huge fan of Health-Ade kombucha for yearrrrssss and was so thrilled to interview one of the co-founders, Daina Trout.  Here’s what we talk about: - The history behind Health-Ade kombucha - Kombucha 101 - Her tips for entrepreneurs and friends with side hustles who want to take things to the next level - Her tips for being Healthy in Real Life - and so.much.more 099: Taking a leap with Daina Trout, Chief Mission Officer and Co-founder of Health-Ade Kombucha Here’s a little bit about Daina if you’re not familiar with her: Daina Trout co-founded Health-Ade Kombucha in 2012 alongside her husband, Justin Trout, and best friend, Vanessa Dew. Since the beginning, the trio has been committed to brewing the best tasting and highest quality kombucha on the market.   Trout first learned how to brew kombucha during her tenure at Tufts University, where she earned her Masters’ degrees both in Nutrition and Public Health  after receiving her BS from Georgetown University. During that time, she also developed her personal philosophy that health is less about science, and more about what makes you feel good and happy. After graduation, Trout moved to Los Angeles to  accept a position working in pharmaceuticals but continued to cultivate an interest in holistic and “real” food that fuels a hard-working lifestyle. Trout funneled this energy into an entrepreneurship club she formed with Justin and Vanessa to explore ways they could combine their diverse backgrounds into a successful business venture; the result, Health-Ade.   Trusting what soon became the company’s motto to “follow your gut,” Trout and her cofounders quit their jobs to focus on Health-Ade full time, brewing kombucha in her apartment closet and selling bottles at a local LA farmers market. Over the course of  the last nine years, Trout has nurtured what started as a small production and niche  product into what has become a national brand that is sold at 45,000 grocery stores and  health food markets nationwide, including major retailers like Target, Whole Foods and  Costco. Today, Health-Ade is currently the fastest growing brand in its category for  three years in a row and is projected to significantly expand its business nationwide  each year under her leadership as Chief Mission Officer. In 2019, Daina was included on Inc’s Female Founder 100 list and was also named BevNet’s Person Of The Year. The same year, she was a semifinalist in EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year program and is a member of the Young Presidents  Organization, a premier community of chief executives from around the world. In 2020,  Daina was highlighted on Entrepreneur’s 100 Powerful Women list, and was a feature  guest on NPR’s How I Built This. When Trout is not tirelessly working to bring kombucha to every fridge in America, she is spending time with her husband and two  sons, traveling, adventuring, cooking and enjoying outdoor life.  You can connect with Daina on Instagram here and check out Health-Ade here!

098: Boosting self worth and body confidence with Rebekah Buege Hi friends! I’m so excited to be partnering with Dr. Stephen Cabral on some upcoming podcast episodes, including this one. I’m currently enrolled in his Integrative Health Practitioner course (Levels 1 and 2) and have learned SO much already. If you’re considering expanding your knowledge in health and wellness or are considering making a career change, check it out here.   I’ve got a new podcast episode up today and am sharing an interview with Bebekah Buege, who is a women’s confidence coach. A heads up about this episode: we talk a lot about body image and past events in this post, so I wanted to include this note here if you think this topic would be triggering for you in any way. It’s meant to be empowering, but I can absolutely see how this can be a delicate topic, particularly for my friends who have experience with body dysmorphia and/or eating disorders.  098: Boosting inner worth and body confidence with Rebekah Buege  Here’s a little bit about what we talk about:  What causes body image issues in high performing women How to feel good in your skin wearing anything (or nothing at all) How to disarm body image triggers from childhood How to give compliments without hurting someone’s body image How body image is a philosophical issue, not a psychological issue and so.much.more. Here’s a bit of background on Rebekah: Rebekah Buege challenges cultural expectations of women through a philosophical lens of what we individually (and culturally) believe makes a woman good. She teaches women tangible ways to value their body based on what it does and develop a truly loving relationship between body and self. Because believe it or not, you are not your body. This sparked her drive to create Confidently She, a podcast and educational platform centered on developing, experimenting, and enjoying femininity in all its forms. Her work, featured in Darling Magazine and Marigold, touches upon the importance of patience when it comes to our relationships with our bodies, the concept of social currency, and a deep dive into creating a rock-solid sense of self-worth. Rebekah’s book, Social Currency, is set to publish in summer 2022 with over 500 pre-order copies already sold. Social Currency examines how a culture obsessed with perfection uses social currencies such as beauty, power, and status as the ultimate measure of a woman's worth, before showing readers there is another way.
