episode 2 : "Diet-shmiet"- How to break the dieting cycle (becoming an intuitive eater)
Off the top of your head, how many "diets" would you say are on the market right now? Too many to count? And a little overwhelming, right? Yep, that's how I feel, too.
Oh "diet-shmiets". (heehee!)
When we diet, we have to follow rules...restrictions and limitations that tend to bind us up and strip away our freedom to make decisions on our own. Most of us crave freedom from a life of dieting...the on-again-off-again rollercoaster of eating perfectly one minute and completely haphazardly the next. The dieting culture has chewed us up and spit us out, leaving us confused, disoriented and frustrated with our bodies.
In this episode, together we're going to dig beneath the surface of dieting and talk about why the dieting mindset can be so harmful for us.
I will teach you about:

episode 1 : How to Start a Fitness or a nutrition plan (and not have to keep starting it over and over!)
"Just getting started is so overwhelming!"...
"I know I really should get my act together."...
"Every time I start something I end up giving up soon after!"
If you've ever said any of these things, this episode is for you! I have spent years helping my clients get the ball rolling with a fitness and nutrition routine, so I know what works and what doesn't work when you're just beginning.
You'll dive into these inspiring Bible verses with me that will give you strength and courage as you begin:
Also, learn the different stages of change that we go through as we create a new habit, and why so many of us get stuck thinking about it for too long. Megan and her co-host Scott will also chat about the idea of "change ONE thing" vs. "change all the things" and why that's so important for habit longevity and preventing overwhelm.

Mini-Episode 1: Practical Fitness and Nutrition for Christian Moms
On this first ever episode of the Strong Mommas Podcast, I'll be introducing myself and my co-host, my husband Scott! We're so excited to meet you!
The Strong Mommas Podcast is all about practical fitness and healthy eating tips, motivational strategies, and Biblical inspiration to pursue a strong and healthy body for all the right reasons.
"My hope with this podcast is for you to feel inspired and equipped to take care of your body the best that you can...and that you leave feeling like a stronger mom than when it started."
Strong Mommas is a website, blog, online coaching program, and and now a podcast for Christian women that care more about their true health and physical fitness, rather than just about looks and vanity. I have spent years sharing my expertise in personal training, sports conditioning, nutrition, and mindset coaching with moms from all over the world.
As a Certified Strength & Conditioning Coach with a degree in Exercise Science and a Certified Nutrition Coach, I have a passion for delivering top-notch advice for working out, eating well, and getting in shape. But it doesn't end there. The fitness & nutrition industry is riddled with obsession, vanity, and the pursuit of the perfect body...all things that drive us further away from Christ and leave us with a hurting and empty soul.
As I say near the end of this episode:
"Our hope with this podcast is for you to feel inspired and equipped to take care of your body the best that you can, that you’ll feel encouraged through all of it and NOT PRESSURED OR BURDENED, and for you to really feel understood…like there’s someone else out there, another mom, another family, that gets you…that knows your body struggles, your logistical struggles, and even your heart struggles.
We pray that with every episode of this show you leave feeling like a stronger mom than when you started."
The strong mommas podcast releasing soon!
