027: Our new, groundbreaking, revolutionary, proven weight loss method!

We are back.

Roni & Carla

And, even more than asking: did you miss us?? we are admitting how deeply we’ve missed you!

We’ve missed your podcast comments.

We’ve missed your thoughts/reactions on our YouTube behind-the-scenes the scenes  videos.

We’ve missed YOU.

In this episode, we catch up on the happenings of the summer, discuss butter in our coffee and weight loss capsules on our tongues, and generally lament the current state of the “get skinny quick and easy!!!” marketing machine.

026: Just Eat REAL Food — What does that mean anyway?

Episode 26 is a reunion of sorts!

Unbeknownst to you we had pre-recorded our optimism episode so it had been a few weeks since the two of us sat down for some good old-fashioned face time.

As a result, those of you who join us for the behind the scenes get an extra helping of chitchat and over-share.

This week’s iTunes episode we delve into the “just eat real food” movement (#jerf), and share our individual reactions to an eating approach which advocates only REAL, HEALTHY and GOOD foods.  One of our favorite healthy food experts, Michael Pollan and his book Food Rules, gets a mention.

We launch with talks of aging and Roni’s new #loving30 project

…which leads to some musings on “one upmanship”, and fashion of all things.  Yes, it’s another babble fest for sure. Join us!

025: Can you make yourself an optimist? Why would you?

Half full and half empty concept with smileys drawn on blackboard.

Inspired by this Greatest post, this week’s podcast focuses on a subject which has fascinated us for a while: optimism versus pessimism.

We learn those who life one of these life-views is more often tardy than the other, reveal which type we individually identify as/offer tips for adopting our ‘mism and debate whether one approach really is “better” than the other regardless what the research says.

Whether you’re Suzy Sunshine, always “prepare for worst and hope for best” or “just know” nothing will ever work out in your favor episode 25 has something for you!

024: Mediate Good Times, Come On!

Do you identify as meditator?  Or are you firmly in the camp who believes meditation is GREAT…for others?

meditate

On this week’s podcast we confront the question which divides us, the duo of What You Can When You Can and the greater-us of the #wycwyc community, and ask…

Are you a meditator?

Join us as we chat about, thanks to the Brooklyn Buddha, how we are meditating “wrong,” and share a few tips on how to possibly do it different. One of us realizes she actually is meditating even though she may not have identified it as such, and we receive an affirmative BARK from the resident Goldendoodle as he, too, attempts to voice a meditation yay or nay? opinion.

This episode is for all of us, but dedicated to those of us who completely, wholly and utterly believe they are unable to stop, drop and meditate which… leads us to our very first poll! We need to know…

Are you a meditator?

022: What’s all this talk of Levels?

Has the notion of “taking it up a level” become the new perfection?

Should we be embarrassed by the fact we may be perfectly happy at our current level?

Is there a level of shame experienced when we slip backward or find ourselves unable to maintain when we’ve taken it up a notch?

From soda drinking to food photography – – we explore all levels (pun intended) of this popular new phrase.

020: What Do You Reflect?

This week we have a rather involved discussion about sleep and sleep habits which can only be heard/seen on our YouTube channel via the behind the scenes videos.

After we go live for the official podcast we continue the chat chat and segue (awkwardly as usual) to a discussion on wycwyc‘ing  half-birthday parties and continue with a discussion about how the world around us is really a reflection of how we choose to see it….

We also mention an interesting article about America’s Fittest Cities and show some love for Amy Schumer’s (although we call her Amy Poehler in the recording — we love them both so it’s all good) skit on about women and excepting compliments — be warned, it’s uncensored.

019: A Very Special Aging Episode

We’d like to say we are kidding about this being a very special podcast episode about aging…but we’re really not.

We launched this one with an 85-year-old woman who unknowingly #wycwyc’ed her way to health, segued into a chat about Blue Zones & their six tips for living longer, and debated which tips we rock, don’t rock, and never planned to rock.

We end by asking if aging really is B.S.? And share myths on aging from this fabulously inspirational article on Breaking Muscle.

Oh! And don’t forget to check out ThePickledGinger.com — one of our #wycwyc’ers of the week!

018: Perfections vs. Connection and the Power of a Nap

An episode 18 we appear to bounce all over the place and yet, in our inimitable way, bring it all back to one major idea: it’s our flaws and our struggles which connect us.

Oh.
And napping.

Tired student fall asleep

There’s lots of talk about the benefits of napping, wycwyc’ing the nap, and avoiding nap-guilt.
