Are you struggling to reboot a healthy lifestyle and fitness routine following the birth of a baby or other major life change? Are you looking for the best online nutrition and fitness programs for postpartum recovery? Are you looking for community connection while you get your pre-pregnancy vitality back?

Today on the Fitlandia Podcast, guest Helene Byrne, prenatal and postpartum exercise specialist, author, and founder of BeFit- Mom™,  joins host Christa King of Fitlandia to discuss post-partum ab recovery.

How Did Helen Become a Prenatal and Postpartum Exercise Specialist?

After the birth of her son, Helene Byrne, was dismayed that pregnancy had seemingly erased her prior fitness state, especially her ab tone and stability, in spite of the fact that she had continued to exercise throughout her pregnancy.  She also discovered that no one was promoting postpartum exercise correctly! There had to be something beyond crunches for a new mom’s body recovery?! So...

Episode 85 - Radical Goal-Setting

You have the potential for permanent lifestyle change, no matter where you start from! Harness the power of your mind to thrive, in spite of a culture of fitness-shaming. Set clear process goals and learn how to “fail forward”, through evaluation and revision. Seek community connection to provide motivational support that informs your goal processes.


_Today on the Fitlandia podcast #85, guests Mike McCastle and David Skolnik of Evolution Healthcare and Fitness (Portland, OR) join host Christa King of Fitlandia Fitness to help those struggling with reaching their goals by providing clarity about the process of successful goal-setting and goal achievement._

Why Set Goals?

Anyone can set mere goals. The importance lies in clarity. Setting CLEAR goals and considering WHY we are setting the goal will:

  • limit our mind’s wandering space
  • draw us into the moment, creating immediacy and focus which allows us to create a rich environment in service to our goals
  • provide...

Episode 81 - The Mind Zoning Academy: End Self-Sabotage

The Root and Remedy for Self-Sabotage

mind zoning Apr 06, 2018

The root cause of self-sabotage can be as simple as our busy minds getting caught up in too many details, or as deeply-rooted and complex as a lack of self-worth. The key to overcoming it is to first identify its source - or sources - to then put together a plan to shift old thought patterns and develop new ones to regain your footing and keep moving forward with your wellness goals!

In Episode 22 of the Fitlandia Podcast, I describe the exercise taught to me on using your non-dominant hand to tap into the subconscious mind to understand how stuck trauma can be related to weight loss challenges.

Well, it works for getting to the root of self-sabotage too!

Understanding Why We Self-Sabotage

You know eating healthy, managing stress and getting daily exercise are key to your overall health and well-being, so why do you sabotage your efforts? The causes can run the gamut and are unique to you, your history, and the thoughts and behaviors you’ve developed over time. The first step...

So today I’m here with Brooke Alpert. Brooke is celebrating the release of her new book, The Diet Detox and is a Registered Dietitian. Welcome, Brooke!

For those who are new to the podcast, Fitlandia is all about NOT dieting…so it was a natural fit to invite Brooke to the show when I discovered her new book. Let’s have Brooke talk a little bit about how this book came to be.

Her focus is in weight loss…she helps people lose weight but not with harmful dieting. After the birth of her 2nd daughter, she had the hardest time losing the excess weight and was feeling quite like a fraud in her business.
