Don't like to exercise? here's your "bare minimum" plan! [Ep. 37]
I should call this one "Fitness for the Haters".
We have this impression that if we want to be fit and healthy, we're supposed to go "all-in" and become obsessive fitness fanatics. We feel like we're supposed to like it, to be passionate about it, and have a desire to workout all the time. But what if we just really don't like to exercise?
Listen, that's ok. You're not necessarily supposed to like it. You have permission to be YOU.
But you do need to do just enough to take care of your body well and be healthy. So let's call this your "bare minimum" plan: the few things you need to focus on to just make sure that you're strong and healthy.
If you hate exercising, this is for you!

A Better Way to Portion Control: Never Count Again! [Ep. 36]

On this episode we're going to talk about strategies that help you stay in control of the quantity of food that you're eating without overlooking the quality of the food you're eating. Best of all, it's easy and non-obsessive!
We also chat about two items on a nutrition label that are important to look for. And how to control the amount of splurge foods that you eat without having to worry about the calories.
