Tap Into Your True Strength with Tammy Wise
In episode 32 Jill and Chris interview Tammy Wise, a Mind-Body Fitness Expert.  She is a Broadway dancer turned Tao minister. In today's Fit Strong Women Over 50 podcast: Your core supports all the bones and muscles in the top of body and bottom of body. Your brain recalls the details of your story, but it doesn’t have the emotional memory. That’s found in your body. Soft tissue holds the emotional memory. Tension and strength have the very same root. Tension is energy that’s stagnant. Strength is energy that’s in flow. Strength is connecting to the goal. Tension stands between you and the goal. Releasing tension builds strength in mind and body. Her strength training method uses alignment, emotional release and outside resistance to reorganize and focus your strength Body Logos means the body’s divine wisdom Eating in balance. She prefers to eat several small meals throughout the day. Peasant bread: dark flour, whole grains “I’ve made it my personal mission to help people understand–and experience–what real strength feels like. And it’s not the result of bench-pressing a ton of weight or running endless miles. It’s about alignment, and a power that comes from your mind and body being in the same place at the same time.”  Tammy Wise Gift for listeners: Free video on how to release pressure.

Using Triathlons to Overcome Adversity: Diana Woolf
In episode 28 of the Fit Strong Women Over 50 Podcast, Jill and Chris talk with Diana Woolf about how she overcame PTSD, resulting from years in the fire service and how that motivated her to try to help others battling PTSD. Diana has been a part of the fire service for 20 years serving on volunteer, part-time and career departments. Diana retired from her fire service career in December, 2018.  She now works in Environmental Health and Safety at the University of Akron. In 2009, Diana Woolf began competing in off-road trail races and triathlons to deal with her own PTSD symptoms and found great healing in the sport. Since then, she has competed in over 50 triathlons, including 7 half-distance and 3 full-distance Ironman triathlons, consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and a 26.2 mile marathon. In order to raise awareness for others in the fire service who are battling PTSD, Diana has completed some of the full-distance Ironman triathlons while wearing full fire-fighting gear for the marathon-length run. She created Rescue 4 PTSD to help raise funds for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and to encourage others in the fire service to discuss their emotions with someone. Diana wants to help remove any stigma of dealing with PTSD and to support resources for others in the fire service. In this episode, Diana talks with Jill and Chris about how she heals trauma through hard physical effort. She also discusses her training  to compete while wearing firefighting gear and how she cross trains. Diana also tells us how she eats and how she fuels herself during a race. Diana’s journey is an inspirational one. It’s amazing to hear what she has done to challenge herself.

How to Crave Healthy Foods & Stop Dieting - Melanie Jatsek
In Podcast # 27, Jill McCauslin and Chris Brown interview Melanie Jatsek, a registered dietitian nutritionist who broke free from the dieting trap. Melanie holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Dietetics from the University of Akron and is the author of three books, including Missing Peace - Eleven Secrets to Restore Inner Harmony with Your Food, Body, and Health. She also created the Healthy YOU program. Melanie is passionate about helping people transform their relationship with food. During this podcast we discuss: How she was able to break free from dieting after years to stop struggling with food. Why many women struggle with diets and their relationship to food Dealing with emotional eating and how she overcame three years of struggling with a binge eating disorder How the food pyramid guidelines (with grains on the bottom and fat on the top) did a disservice to women over 50 with misinformation. "We know better now.” Why counting calories is not the way to go Why she switched from her 20 year vegetarian-based diet to more of a Mediterranean-based diet Melanie reveals some secrets for helping your body to crave healthy foods like: • “Your body gets full off of nutrients, not calories.” • “The body craves what you’re feeding it the most.” • “The bacteria in your gut is what is craving food.” Bad bacteria crave sweets and highly processed foods. Good bacteria crave whole foods. • “Low Fat and Fat Free – when we restrict fat we are always hungry, but we know better now.” • “Good dietary fat actually helps you to burn fat.” During this podcast you will learn why she roasts her veggies with avocado oil instead of olive oil, how she trained her body to crave raw vegetables, and how she avoids hidden sugars in food like peanut butter and chocolate. She helps people develop a healthy relationship with food and talks about: • The balance of good-for-you foods with a sprinkle of fun foods (ie chocolate.) • The outdated guidelines of 12 servings of grains and pasta a day. • The effect of heavy servings of carbohydrates makes on your body (easier to produce insulin, gain weight and store fat.) Melanie feels that no food is forbidden and believes that you will crave what you feed your body. To connect with Melanie, visit her website: www.melaniejatsek.com or her Facebook Page: Healthy You.
Group Exercise Instructor Diane Reuther
Group Exercise Instructor Diane Reuther talks with the Becoming Elli cohosts, Jill McCauslin and Chris Brown, about being fit as a woman over 50. Diane has been a group exercise instructor since 1986. She's seen a lot of changes in the fitness industry and how instructors are trained and credentialed. Today, Diane teaches: Pilates (certified through SCW Fitness Education) Silver Sneaker (certified https://www.silversneakers.com/) Step class We discuss why some of us like step class and why others don't.  Diane explains that step is a visual class and that we walk through the steps, repeating the motions into a routine so that the class feels like a dance class. Some of the questions that Jill and Chris ask Diane is how she defines fit and if we had only 15 minutes in a day to work out, what should we do. Diane says anything we do for fitness should be fun and safe. Also, she reminds us that the pool is our friend. Diane is an avid hiker. She and her husband hike a lot of trails close to home and Diane tells us about the wonderful sounding hiking vacation the two of them took.  Last summer Diane had a hysterectomy and discussed her recovery with us. Before the surgery, she was very active and in good physical shape, but she followed her doctor’s advice and took baby steps to recover. She had laparoscopy with four small incisions of thumbnail size. Her recovery was limited to what she could do without pain. Diane started walking two days after surgery. At first, she walked the length of her driveway because she was anxious to get moving outside. So, at first, she walked five minutes. The next day she walked for seven minutes and the next day nine minutes. She made sure her husband accompanied her on these walks. Disclaimer: Neither Diane nor us at Becoming Elli are doctors or physical therapists. We are not providing you with any kind of medical advice. The discussion with Diane was informative and enjoyable. She has some good advice for women over 50 who are trying to improve their fitness and health. Jill and Chris also talk a bit about healthy eating and finding new vegetables to try.
Eat Well to Live Well with Heather Lentz
In episode #23, Jill McCauslin and Chris Brown talk with Heather Lentz about her opinions about food, diets, her roles as a health coach and director of wellness at at a well-respected green grocery chain and as the founder and director of product development for KOI Gourmet Skincare. She is a certified holistic health practitioner, food wellness advisor and good food advocate. In episode 23, Heather discusses: Food as medicine: Selling food-based supplements, super foods, and proteins, is the pharmacy of the future. Veganism, Paleo/Keto and her belief that people should eat in the way that’s right for them, but there’s no one way of eating for everyone. She thinks that obsessing too much about food gives food too much power and she believes that a lot of it starts with body image. We think we have to look a certain way. She feels our society is in a nasty cycle because we eat to lose weight and then we stress about it and the stress releases hormones that make you unable to lose weight or to gain weight. Heather offers many tips on improving your food program in this episode. See our website article for all the show notes here.
