How Health Coaching Moves You in the Right Direction Faster
Today's episode is pretty much a coaching call with me. Unless you actually have coached or are a coach it's hard to know what to expect and how it works. There's a little dance between asking, listening, suggesting, and providing homework that will give us data. You can't see it all here but you can see how we uncover and I play roles as a fitness expert teaching, as well as asking what's true. In a next session of course there would be more to go on for the choices my client, in this case, Annette would have to consider. Then we co-collaborate on next steps. But this is a perfect example of someone maybe like you - who isn't finding it works any more and how we'd explore data collection to give us some clues about why. How often have you had a question answered before you knew to ask the question by listening to a conversation? I’m not talking exactly about eavesdropping but you’re invited to listen to a conversation today between myself and Annette, a brand new Flipping 50 virtual member. Her questions were so on-target with many of our new members that I wanted to do a live coaching session with her and let you listen. You’ll be able to hear as the coaching conversation unfolds, how I pick up on certain important points Annette shares. And if you don’t, that could be huge insight for you on what you want to take a closer look at. Questions we answered in this coaching session: What is your definition of “healthy eating,” can you describe that? How much protein do you have each meal? Are you aware of your response to food sensitivities like gluten and wheat, or eggs? Can you describe your exercise history? What’s a typical exercise week look like? Why are you so sure not to go heavier than 10 lbs with weight training? Are you concerned about bone density? Coaching around fitness, especially for women in midlife and older is more than just giving an exercise prescription to follow. It’s listening for the best place to start with one or two small steps based on what’s happening now for the person. Did you hear how comfortable and valuable coaching can be? Then two small pieces of homework that could change everything are given. No overwhelm but a concrete way to start moving in a better direction. Leave a comment below the show notes.

Easy Detox Anytime Including Before Your Holiday Splurge
Easy Detox Anytime Including Before Your Holiday Splurge Before we dive into this episode and I roll out the red carpet for my guest I want o read a review from iTunes. Natural easy detox happens daily when you eat and drink the things that makes your body thrive. Heart of electrolytes? Of course, you have! Don't confuse those common exercise electrolyte sources (full of chemicals, sugar, or both) with what we're talking about today. Post-mold, and pre-triathlon competition, I've been sipping on this stuff daily. It's a huge help for staying hydrated and for making it easier for your body to do what it should and can every day. OrwollFam says: "Debra makes so much sense and afer following her for a few years I feel better (no daytime energy crashes anymore) look forward to exercising, and am seeing results! I am loving life again. This is a total game changer!" My Guest Teri Cochrane is an integrative practitioner and thought leader in personalized health care. She has developed her own methodology, “The Cochrane Method®,” which integrates a multi-level nutritional approach, including bio-chemistry, nutrition, genetic tendencies, herbology, and counseling, to develop a bio-individualized plan for her clients. She is a writer and speaker, and maintains a nationally read blog and radio presence. Teri specializes in complex health conditions and has a private clinical practice in Reston, VA within the metro Washington DC area. She launched her groundbreaking and Amazon best selling new release book - The Wildatarian® Diet - Living as Nature Intended in March 2018. Questions we answer in this podcast: What’s the best way to handling stress – because it’s not going away? Why is Wild the best way to live to manage it? Why might Keto not be the best approach for everyone? What’s a good pre-holiday detox strategy? How do you stay lean and fit at 58? What does your diet and workout routine look like?
Imagine Your Life at 75 Then Listen to This
What will your life at 75 look like? I hope you haven't skipped the assignment to create a vision of your own life at 75 before you listen. I caught up with Dexter Yeats at Ironman Cozumel 2019. You may remember our interview two years ago when I had the good fortune to meet her at Cozumel Ironman 2016. Days before this year’s race we ran into each other at the hotel and began talking about mindset. Listen in as we discuss her plans for next year, when she’ll turn 75. Here how she responded to my question about mindset and the placebo effect. I’ll link to Dexter’s prior podcast with me and to the book that I began our conversation talking about. Questions we answer in this podcast (and pose for you): How has mindset made a difference for you? Share the story you told me about how you’ve rehearsed mentally since 1989 What’s it like for you at home when you’re not surrounded by triathletes who get this lifestyle where hours of biking, running, and swimming are the norm? Do you have in-active friends? What are your plans for next year (when you turn 75)? So the last question I’ll ask here, reader, is what does your life at 75 look like? What do you want it to look like and why? Remodeling? Dexter’s home is undergoing remodeling right now, a new addition includes her personal workout room. It’ll be complete with a treadmill, a zero gravity treadmill, and a Wahoo trainer, with a beautiful view. (I’ll be sure to mention weights). That’s what she’s planning for her life at 75.
