Caring for Your Beautiful Body with Megan Dahlman
Show Notes

I don't know about you, but I struggle with nutrition, fitness and body image.

I've yo-yo'd back and forth from diet approaches and exercise routines, and the only way I've been able to see significant results has been with strict, regimented programs that aren't sustainable.

I've had to come to peace (rather I'm working on it...) with my 40-something body and how it responds to my wellness practices, even if it means I'm not as lean as I used to be.

How about you - do you find yourself getting frustrated with fitness and nutrition as you work towards an "ideal body weight" you think you'd be more happy at?

Did your body change after having kids?

Do you find yourself dreaming about your leaner physique while despising the one you have today?

If so, you're not alone.

In this episode, my friend, certified trainer and nutrition coach Megan Dahlman of Strong Mammas chats with me about how to stay motivated in our wellness practices even if our bodies have changed, and encourages us to break up with perfection and lean more into acceptance and grace as we progress with exercise and eating well.

What you'll hear:

  • How moms can break through the all-or-nothing and perfectionist mindsets with her self-care habits.
  • How much daily effort is necessary to actually make a difference for your health and create forward progress.
  • The power of committing to just 10 minutes a day to fitness.
  • And I'll be spilling all the beans on my personal challenges with my own mom bod.
