Happy Monday fam! Today I wanna dive into a talk that might be a little bit intense for some of you, but I want you to know that I am not trying to shame you or judge you. So if you are listening to this and at some point are like "ouch", then maybe it is something you should really apply to your life. Take this as your sign my friend, because I believe in you and through these uncomfy talks we are becoming our best selves. This episode is all about intention and how that plays into excuses, complaints, and ultimately the success we see in our lives. It's human nature to complain about the things we don't have and make excuses about why we don't have it, and then accept it as not meant to be for us. When really the missing piece is intention. We often lack the intention behind what we want to work past the excuses that come up for us. Bu think of it this way, we each get 24 hours in a day. You, me, your family, that person you admire, we all have 24 hours in a day and the only difference between you and them is the priorities you make with the intentions you set. You can have that bangin body, you can have that successful business, you can have it all. That is why in this episode, I share two excercises or practices that have changed my life and will change yours too! You are a priority, it is time to truly act on that fact girlfriend.  Because you do have time, and you are worth the energy!  *** If you love this episode and want to hear more let me know in your 5 star review!! & don't forget to leave your IG handle so I can shout you out and tag you! Powerful moments in this personal development podcast: 4:02 A practice to help you change your internal narrative so that you can reach your goals. 7:10 How to prioritize your time and use your time in a way that best serves you. 11:03 Why your life won't change in 5 years unless you start setting intentions 12:01 An exercise on how to start setting intentions and make yourself a priority. 16:07 How to prepare for the excuses that come with changing your routine.

If you listen to this podcast, you know we dish out the real, real, we give it how it is and don’t sugar coat anything. This episode is no different if you are someone who struggles with abuse, addiction, or anything along those lines. This episode might be triggering for you, but I encourage you to listen if that is you, because this episode may shed some light on the light at the end of the addiction tunnel. This is a topic that has been highly requested in my DM’s, and I know that there are people out there who are struggling with addiction, whether it is a current or past addiction, or whether it is something that you may think is not strong enough to be considered an addiction. Addiction comes in all forms; it can come up as a food addiction or has a Netflix addiction. If you are finding yourself every Monday saying you will make a change and then giving up by Friday, it is time to break the cycle. Our guest Anneke Gyulavary, is a naturopath student and certified personal trainer from Melbourne, Australia. She joins us to share her recovery story. She also shares with us why many people are predisposed to addiction due to abuse in our childhoods, and how she went from a small town gal with so many possibilities to being consumed by her addiction.  Important moments to tune in for in this personal development podcast: 2:35 Anneka’s intro 5:04 The signs of addiction that Anneka now sees in her childhood that no one picked up on. 11:30 The real risk of testing with drugs and debunking ‘the gateway drug.’ 19:30  Why Anneke sees addiction as a disease and realized her use of drugs was a problem. 23:17 How shame and guilt play a role in overcoming addiction and distract us from achieving the goals we set for ourselves. 28:10 What the steps of addiction recovery looked like for Anneke. 36:40 Where Anneke sees herself in the future. 39:50 Anneke’s hard NO and hell YES! 42:00 Anneke’s most embarrassing moment!

Today we are talking about confidence because there is a notion around that you are born with all the confidence you can have, that you are born with all the confidence you deserve and that my friends, is not even a little bit true. In this episode, I share my journey to building my confidence and what my confidence was like in high school. What tools I cultivated to break the cycle of shame, guilt and belief that I was not worthy. So that I could become the empowered version of myself you see today. My goal with this episode and telling you my stories is to call you to action, to take that leap and get yourself out of the mindset, out of the habit of thinking “if I am not confident, I guess that it is not going to happen for me, that is just not who I am.” Because confidence is like a muscle, you build it, you cultivate it by taking action every day and reinforcing your belief in yourself. No one was born with confidence, not me, not that person you admire on Instagram, not even JLO was born with confidence. We each created it, and the cool thing about that is that YOU can do it too! We each have the ability as humans to cultivate what we want in our lives, and that is exactly the case with confidence. Powerful moments in this personal development podcast: [1:36]  Our amazing Uncomfy fam 5-star review shout outs! [3:46]  What you can do to have more “Annie” energy in your life. [5:10]  Where my confidence was in high school,  how I broke out of shaming myself and pretending to be like someone else. [8:50  How to create confidence.  [10:23] How do you be better? Unlearn your limiting beliefs and grow your confidence?! [14:49]  Why you should not feel guilty or shame yourself for where you are with your confidence in your life right now. [15:02] Why taking action is the biggest leap you will take for your confidence, goals and life long dreams! [22:25]  How I got to where I am with my confidence and how YOU can take the steps meant for you to have the confidence you want.

Today we are going to dive deep into the uncomfy conversations that happen around dieting, binge eating, and the mindset that can change it all for you, my friend! I am joined by one of my incredible adventure buddies Caitlen Schmidt. Caitlen is a wonderful science nerd, who loves everything about human metabolism, nutrition, and wellness.

Both Caitlen and I have been in places where macros ran our lives, where restricting ourselves was the answer to feeling like we were worthy of loving ourselves or receiving love from others. But we are here to break that norm with the science behind your metabolism so that you can re-write your epic story around being healthy. I hope that you are inspired by this episode to keep working on your self-love journey because you are not alone in this thought process, but you are so very loved.

Today we are talking about weird shaming. This topic has been heavily on my mind; lately, it is weird how our society and culture will try to shape us to be ‘normal’. I have been told I was weird, to stop being so intense, to change this or change that, to be more normal my entire life. I tried to fit into a square peg into a round hole and was left on the outside so many things. Until one day I decided to embrace my weirdness and build my dream life!  I myself am a firm believer that if we showed up as our most authentic selves, we would cultivate an incredible world full of truly happy people. Because what is ‘normal’? Who decides what is ‘normal’? We live one life. You, my friend, only have one life so don’t waste it trying to be ‘normal’. Whatever your weird thing is, whatever the world has tried to get you to think is weird about yourself or unacceptable about yourself. I challenge you to pursue it today. Step into it. One step, do one thing today. Time Stamps [3:31] My growth journey & how I embraced being my weird self.

Racism is real it is an ongoing issue in all of our communities and the only way to change this is to step up and learn the lessons we need to learn to move forward together.

I am coming on in full emotion today. I just spent an hour crying in my car, and I don’t know who needs to hear this, but I want you to know you are not alone. I want you to know that the moments that have you crying in your car are what shape you. We can’t have good days without having bad days my friends. This is real life, the low moments are inevitable but the important thing is these low moments are not what defines you. What you do after going through these hard moments is what defines you as a business owner, as a mom, as a girlfriend, as a wife, as a best friend, as an athlete. It’s what you do next that will push you to grow, that will build your personal development, change your mindset, and ultimately change your life. In this episode, I share some tips and exercises I do on my bad days. Because what I have realized is that allowing a bad day to dictate your day, productivity, or energy is not the way you grow. That is the way you remain stuck.  Life is hard, and I get that. But think about it, what if you are going through this hard time to be able to push past it, to perceiver to keep going through it, to learn from it. To be able to teach somebody else down the road who is going to need you to coach them through it because they're going through the same thing.  Let's get uncomfy ya'll because when we are uncomfy when we are crying in the car, we are making room for growth in our lives in ways we didn't even know were possible.  If this episode resonates with you please share it on IG and tag me or leave a review on Apple Podcasts. These small steps are how we make the world a better place.  Time Stamps: [2:45] One of the first things I do when I am having a bad day.

Have you guys ever heard the phrase “embrace the suck?” I hear this phrase all the time, and honestly, I used to live by it. I used to think that everything had to suck to one day be great. I thought pain, terrible things, toxic relationships were part of the journey and accepted it with the hope that maybe one day everything will be great. In this episode, I share how six years ago, I graduated from basic survival training with the military. We got sent into the woods to survive and hunt for ourselves. We had to trek across the colorado mountains in the snow. I am sharing this because, at this point in my life, I remember embracing the suck was something I heard every day. You would ask people how their day was, and they would say, “embracing the suck!” I thought that if I stick through this path I was on eventually, something great will happen. But guys, there is something different between knowing something is not right for you, knowing it sucks, knowing it’s toxic, knowing it’s damaging and hurtful. It is very different putting up with that than embracing the hard work, the dedication, consistency, and effort it takes to build something amazing for yourself. Because the truth is, you do not have to embrace the suck to have an amazing life. I want you to know that no. You don’t have to embrace the suck, in my opinion, it’s all about finding the hard-ass work that is going to be fulfilling, and empowering and exciting. And that is not going to look the same for everybody. So if you feel a heart tug to do more, be more show up as more, and live a bigger life, take a step in that direction. Start with one step at a time, it is going to be challenging, but it will be worth it. I believe in YOU, my friend! TIMESTAMPS for key moments in this epic personal development episode!

Are you in a positive and strong relationship with yourself? Do you take yourself on dates? We sat down with Umama Kiraba to answer these questions and more! Umama is the queen of dating herself, the start-up master, and honestly one of the people who inspired me to follow my heart tugs. She is a firm believer that your relationship with yourself will never go away, you are always going to be your biggest cheerleader. So, its time to treat yourself, my friend! Umama is a fitness expert, CEO of the Sweat Pack a community for fitness and accountability. Umama was recognized as one of Forbes 30 under 30 because of her genuine passion for connecting people through fitness. Umama was not an athlete, she began her fitness and personal growth journey with home workouts. For her it was never about transforming her body, it was about doing something completely for herself. It was about learning how to show up and learning how to follow the rules while also developing a student mentality. The student mentality shows us how to let go of our ego, and go into new environments and how to ask questions and be willing to learn. Why are these important? Discipline, a student mentality, and work ethic are all the characteristics of a thriving entrepreneur. An entrepreneur YOU can be! Right after you get uncomfy. Whether you are married or dating or wherever you are at dating yourself is something we all should invest time into! Getting uncomfortable and then becoming comfortable with being uncomfortable pushes you to learn about yourself so you can be your best cheerleader no matter what the world thinks, says or throws at you. Just like the student mindset the mindset behind dating yourself transforms into business, work, relationships, and lifestyle. Dating yourself allows you to show up in your relationships without expectations from your partners so that your partners know that you want them there not that you need them there. And that alone will transform your relationships! Key points to tune in to: [6:35] How has fitness allowed Umama to transform into a businesswoman. [ 9:10] How Umama is being real with herself in the new normal. [11:44] Why dating yourself is such an important part of your personal growth. [17:48] Umama’s tips on how to follow your heart tugs when you worry about not being supported. [25:08] What it is like being an honored Forbes 30 under 30, and how you can accomplish a milestone like this too! [30:30] Umama’s hard NO and HELL yes! [31:00] Umama’s embarrassingly empowering moment.

Have you ever thought “I want to start a business!” “I want to take that adventure!” “I want to do XYZ” and you discount the countless amounts of effort, the energy, the consistency it took because you did not see the work that went on behind the scenes? And you think they are some magical being who has better mental health, smarter, better, has more time, has more money than you have… I think everyone has, BUT it is time to clear the air and get uncomfy with this topic. Because sista friend, whatever your goals are YOU CAN DO IT! We get into the real talk in this episode because I want to share with you how I created something from nothing, how I created the thriving successful businesses from absolutely nothing. We are so conditioned to have goals, dreams, ambitions in our heads, and when we verbalize them to someone we give them the power to support us and accept us and give us the okay. When they don’t we take it as a personal blow. At the end of the day, what do you have to lose by going for it? Because guess where you are going to be if you don’t go for it? You are going to be regretting not going for it. We get one life, what are you waiting for? Are you waiting for external support? Are you waiting for someone to say its acceptable? Or are you going to own your ambitions and go for it? I want you to figure out what is your purpose, and right now that might seem so broad and so big but it starts with the little things, it starts with figuring out what you love doing. It all starts with mindset, it starts with beliefs, it starts with showing up and not allowing that negativity, that judgment that criticism to get in your way because it’s going to be there no matter what. It starts with figuring out what you can do to give value to others around you. I want you to sit in your ideas, visualize your day, what does your life look like when you are your best self? Paint a clear picture and then start showing up as her! SAY IT, LIVE IT, EMBODY IT! I believe in you! Key points to tune in for: [2:51] How I created something from nothing. [5:45] What you need to do to find and live your passion in life! [7:00] The first thing I did to follow my calling that led to my a 100K person community, multiple successful businesses, and this personal development podcast! [10:05] The secret to moving past criticism, judgment, and negativity so that you can live the life that lights you up and become the best version of yourself! [13:06] How to visualize your big idea, change your mindset, build your dreams, accomplishing your goals, and start showing up as that person daily. [15:00] How to provide value to people with the things you love doing and how I provided free content every single day for years before launching. [19:35] The DM that changed it all for me! Led to my very first launch and led to me becoming a serial entrepreneur. Get even more uncomfy with me!

It is time to normalize NORMAL body image my peeps! If you get caught comparing yourself to others or are feeling upset with your physical self then this episode is for you. Today we are talking about cellulite,  body image, and self-love. I am joined by my friend Gabby Male, CEO of SWITCHITUP, creator of the Rose Retreats, fitness expert, and all-around empowering woman. Gaby shares her first-hand experiences in overcoming her eating disorders, reaching her fitness goals, and still not feeling like she was enough. She realized health goals are more than a number on a scale, our health includes our physical health, mental health, and emotional health as well. Those small habits that you do every single day like the way you think, the way you speak, the way you spend your time all add up to who you are. And you should be proud of that person because there is NO ONE else like you! Gaby and I also dig into how social media (especially Instagram!) can be a positive outlet for growth, but can also create an unhealthy relationship with ourselves. We all know that social media has evolved over the last few years, but how have YOU evolved? How are you growing? The power to manifest your best life is inside of you my friend! It is time to tap into that, it is time to learn to send yourself love notes, yell to the mountaintops how much you love yourself. Because when you step into your own power. You give permission to others, to do the same. Key uncomfy moments to tune in for: [3:05] Gaby’s story & her mission to empower women just like you. [13:10] How Gabby used social media for self-love & to fight her inner demons. [17:09] Gabby’s advice on getting more vulnerable in your life and on social media. [20:18] Things you can do on days you are over critical of yourself. [26:42] How letting go of being focused on #’s on the scale opened up opportunities for Gaby. [31:30] Gabby’s first steps in leaning into her heart tugs towards being a successful businesswoman. [38:10] What’s next for Gabby Male! [40:10] Gabby’s HARD no & HELL yes.

Something is calling you to feel more, be more, and show up as more. And you might be putting it off, but let me tell you, my friend. You are not alone. 18 months ago my incredible fiance fixed my ultimate excuse for not starting this personal development podcast. He bought AND set up all the gear I needed in my little office area, and you know what? I STILL HAD EXCUSES! The next big excuse I had was that one day the negative nancy in my mind was going to go away, that the right time would come along, that I would feel ready. But guess what I still don’t feel ready and here I am doing it anyway. Everybody feels and has negative thoughts BUT it is all about how you overcome that. I am launching this podcast to bring you incredible interviews and solo casts about health, personal growth, trauma, wealth, business, literally anything that might make us uncomfy. I don’t want you to get 18 months down the road (like me) and realize that you are still going to have roadblocks on your path. You will never be 100% ready, there will never be a “perfect time.” So it is time to launch, lean in, take action, and GET UNCOMFY. This is your sign to Pursue what people say is unlikely.
