Sometimes it’s hard to see how bad things are in our lives when we’re in the thick of it.
In 2012, I was drinking a bottle of wine (sometimes more) every single night just to deal with my chaotic life.
I didn’t realize at the time that I was self-soothing with food and booze. In fact, I looked at others and justified my behavior saying, “Well that’s no more than they do.”
I was dealing with atrocious corporate politics that tested my ethics every day; a severely mentally ill mother and trying to manage her care 3,000 miles away; and a work schedule that was no less than 70-hrs per week with travel 3-4 weeks out of the month. It was a shit-show.
My sleep was horrible (maybe 4 hours per night and no restorative sleep) my eating and drinking out of control, and I found my mood volatile with me crying every single day.
After 6-months of trying to operate in this manner, I...
In this exciting episode, we are cracking the code to a healthy lifestyle with Christa King. Christa talks about how retreats have been a key part in her transformation with unlocking this code.
Hi, I’m Christa King and I’ve cracked the code to making healthy habits stick by learning how to rewire my mind through my recovery is a burned out corporate exec to becoming a certified hypnotherapist and nutritional therapist.
I was 50 pounds overweight, drinking a bottle or two of wine every night, working 70 hours a week, traveling three to four weeks out of the month, all while my mother was suffering from severe mental illness 3000 miles away.
Once I unlock the secret, I started with myself losing and now maintaining 30 pounds of weight, but weight loss aside, it was my mind that had change. Weight loss was a byproduct.
I asked myself, how do I share the stories of people who have made massive changes in their lives by merely stepping out...

about six months ago left Portland and moved down to Sonoma County, California for a job opportunity to kind of step up what I’m doing in the rehab world going from part-time as a physical therapist to the director of Rehab at a clinic that focuses on kind of acute care, geriatrics.
How, you know, problems aren’t usually formed in isolation or solved in isolation. So, it takes people with different perspectives coming together to, to, to either solve problems or even to figure out what the problem is.
And over the course of the last six years, I can’t believe it’s been six years almost since I went on that retreat. I’ve really started to not only embody the power of, you know, what...

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.

As the holidays roll in we’re granted with an abundance of joys, more time off work, a shift in the seasons and time with family and friends. This for many of us, also includes an overload of comfort foods, sweet treats we’ve adored since childhood and social events surrounded by alcohol. Christa shares she’s been indulging in more alcohol than she’d like to with the stresses and celebrations surrounding the launch of her new book, Strategic Vitality: 11 Small Steps to a Big Transformation.
She explains coming off an amazing high after her book launch party which occurred last Saturday, excited that she could continue to share her story, her struggles and how she works on overcoming them.
