037: Reducing Stress in a Post Election World and The Perfect Diet!

Welcome to #wycwyc podcast episode number 37!

In this week’s podcast we learn of a  what you can when you can moment which inspired one of us to jettison the car and bike to her doctors appointment…for fasting blood work!

A powerful reminder of how sharing our successes ripples outward and inspires others.

Next we share six nontraditional stress reducing tips which work during this post election season and beyond.

Nail polish dots to balloons.

Canine as little spoon to tree-bark.

We’ve got suggestions for lessening anxiety and plummeting those cortisol levels.

Finally, we wrap-up this week’s episode by sharing with you the most effective diet for weight loss

(Spoiler alert: You kinda already know it).

We share our experiences with this diet and offer up tips to help you helping you create your own path there.

Which one of us could easily consume a vat of oatmeal?

Is it Carla or Roni who finds sucking on a Jolly Rancher to be the sweet sweet way to stress relief?

036: Marriage Musings, Holiday Eating Strategies and The Podcast that Almost Wasn’t

Greetings from the other side of Halloween 2016!

In this week’s podcast we debate the merits of post trick or treat candy sorting and chat about moderation (or lack thereof) in Halloween night candy consumption.

In a more serious vein, we share experiences we’ve each had recently which have reminded us of the importance of small shifts to trigger tremendous growth.

Even when something is seemingly small (guess which one of us changed CrossFit gyms) it can spark positive growth all over again.

We HAD wrapped the episode by sharing with you some secrets for successful weight loss but, thanks to a glitch in recording, we will need to save said secret until next week!

Instead we gift you some Roni-created strategies to help us get ready now so we can cruise calmly through the impending eating season.

What 90s hip-hop song do we both love yet neither knew the other adored?
What’s the key to a happy marriage according to Roni and Carla?

035: Trusting Yourself, Yoga for Sanity and Going with the Change

When was the last time you had an opportunity to reflect on how far you’ve come?
Have you had experiences lately which spark a realization of the fact you finally trust yourself?

Trust the choices you make.
Trust taking a day off from exercise won’t spiral into weeks.
Trust your intuition about what’s right for you and your body.

We begin episode 35 talking about this notion of trust and, once we’ve shown ourselves we can be successful, how it translates into believing in ourselves and our choices.

Speaking of choices, no matter your candidate last night’s debate and the entire election season has been a stressful one. We’ve got a suggestion for how you might make the remaining 20+ days a little more zen–through yoga and through laughter.

We wrap up the episode debating whether or not we agree paying one’s children (or spouse/partner for that matter) to consume fruits/vegetables is a good idea.  Scientific research says yes – – what do we say?

Which of us is considering a career in cottage food?
Which is patting herself on the back for finding a creative accountability partner for fitness?

034: Bite Counting and Bantering

Do you remember precisely how many bites you took during your last meal?
How about over the course of all your meals & snacks yesterday?
More importantly, do you care??

In Episode 34 we debate the merits (or lack thereof) of fitness wearables which would track bites per meal rather than steps per day.

We also congratulate ourselves on fitting in fitness (aka squeezing in those morning runs), question whether one could be too zen for yoga, chat about the importance of allowing ourselves to be beginners and grow a bit baffled about the fact now never happens.

Curious which one of us made her cat neurotic?
Wondering which of us longs for an old-school indiglo timex?
Hey! We even discuss candy corn. Yes, candy corn…

033: Celebrate New Year’s in October and Stop Trying to Skip the Struggle!

Brace your collective selves, we’ve got news.

According to the New York Times, today is the day — well, last Saturday was but we’ll get to that — you’ve officially achieved your lowest bodyweight and it’s only uphill from here through the holiday season.

Join us in episode 33 as we debate whether or not we believe this statement to be true (is today really our official low?! should we be doing something to celebrate?) and, if it is, would setting resolutions in October not January be the solution?

We also, in our own inimitable circuitous way, debate our similarities and differences when it comes to confronting/pushing through struggles.

Stop Trying to Skip the Trouble

Through the course of our discussion we (overshare and) come to some surprising realizations about why we, as humans, instinctively resist when situations get tough.

032: Grey Living and Third Person Talking

If we challenged you to describe what “living in the grey” would look like for you—could you answer?

Can you envision what form your healthy habits would take in a world where no clear black or white exists?

In this episode we spend time discussing Marsha Hudnall’s article which challenges us to consider that question and ponder how different – – or not – – our lives might be.

We also offer up some strong (and admittedly silly) advice for stemming the tide of negative self talk by using a literary tool in a decidedly non-literary fashion.

Curious what the heck were taking about?
Ready to join us and “get on the rocket?”

031: From Bubble Baths to Kelly Bundy

Do you rock when it comes to self-care? Whether pedicures or Netflix binges, do you regularly make time to indulge yourself?

In this episode we debate if self-care demands decadence or can include making ourselves do the tough stuff? What haven’t they told us?

We also chat about the number of healthy habits we are capable of maintaining at one time inspired by this episode of Married with Children.

Kelly Bundy

Is it possible to layer habit upon habit and maintaining them all? Is there a maximum number of healthy efforts we can sustain simultaneously?

All this, a shout out to our new drink of choice (hint: it rhymes with enjoy!), and some silly but stupendous kitchen hacks to help you WICKWICK  your way to food preparation.

Healthy Perfectionism, Activation Energy and the Worst “F” Word of Them All

In this week’s episode we chat about an article which may change your perspective on the evil P-word:

Perfectionist.

Is it possible to be a healthy perfectionist?
Can there exist different levels and varieties of this tendency?
We thought no. We may have had our minds changed.

We also spend time talking about not screwing yourself over,

pronounce our love for the idea of activation energy, debate whether “fine” means status quo in a negative way, and go back-and-forth between autopilot and yanking our personal emergency brakes.

Thoroughly confused? You’ll just have to listen and see what we mean.
