The first time I listened to “Heavyweight,” I didn’t know what to expect. I had seen it was highly reviewed and was ready to add something into my listening routine.

In the first episode I checked out, I quickly realized it was a true story and I would have a conclusion by the end.

“But would I? Really?” I had thought. “This seems like A LOT of work!”  Continue reading

Bingeworthy Podcast The Pope's Long Con

If you are somewhat caught up on political news, you may remember hearing about the death, which has been officially ruled a suicide, of Kentucky Representative Dan Johnson. His suicide came shortly after news broke that he was being investigated for molestation allegations. This was a special report by the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting and the Louisville Public Media, the team behind “The Pope’s Long Con.”

And this wasn’t the first time Johnson was in the news. Continue reading

Weight Loss Podcasts and What I’ve Learned So Far

Lately I’ve enjoyed finding weight loss podcasts to listen to that will help me stay on track. Some of the new favorite ones include:

From the podcasts I’ve learned a few key things. Well, let’s not say learned because these are all things I know. Just things I need to focus on:

  • Don’t compare yourself to others and their progress, but rather where you are in your own progress and where you have been.
  • Do you want the pain of discipline? Or regret?
  • Avoid preservatives in foods (I know this, it’s just hard financially right now to shop at a specialty grocery store or in the natural aisle…I know–do I want to pay for it now, or later in my health?)

That first bullet really hits home. I get really caught up when other people compare their progress and they are in a much better situation than I am in their journey. It’s like a dagger to the chest. “Why can’t I just do it?” I always wonder. “Why do I always let myself down?” I think I’m going to really have to start tuning out all the noise around me and not take it personally when others share their success or failures that are beyond mine.

Then the second bullet I think is a great saying I need to start carrying with me. I feel better when I eat healthier. But then at times I get busy, we have a late night and I just bomb. Or I want to eat emotionally, happy or sad, which causes me to bomb. That needs to stop.

I also bomb because of others. Others saying to eat badly, or encouraging nights out or put me in situations where I go too long without food in which I get a headache.

I need to learn how to filter out the noise better…say no more often… because I need to make myself priority No. 1 in order to get where I want to be.
