We have so many things to be thankful for, don’t we? Thanksgiving brings about a time of reflection for many. Every day I write down three gratitudes to help me see the blessings in my life no matter what my life circumstances are at the time. But at Thanksgiving, I think I am even more intentional about finding things to be grateful for.This year has been a year, that’s for sure. But we can still be grateful for so many things! Maybe you’re grateful for your health, or you’re grateful for more family time, or you’re grateful that you were able to slow down. Maybe you’re more grateful for the work you have than ever before! We can turn these crazy times into blessing times if we choose to see the good that can come out of it. Today’s guest exudes gratitude even for the hard challenges she faced because they have made her stronger and helped her to encourage others through them. From an eating disorder to caring for her special needs son to redefining her faith, Jennifer Whynot has lived through much heartache turned into breakthrough and victory. She now thrives in the face of adversity and struggles she’s faced over her life, and she seeks to encourage others to do the same through theirs.

It’s already November, and we’re gearing up for another Thanksgiving season. November is known to be the month of thankfulness, and I love reflecting on the blessings in my life, but I don’t think it should be exclusive to Thanksgiving time. Gratitude is a trait we should adopt in our daily lives, and today we are going to talk about why gratitude works, what it does, and how to begin your own gratitude journal and journey. FULL SHOW NOTES MENTIONED IN EPISODERegister for the free 7-day Gratitude Challenge!CONNECT WITH MEFacebook:
Today is going to be one of those really raw and real conversations, the ones I’ve been saying I’m shifting to. I’m learning to just let God lead and let Him use me for His ultimate purpose.I’ve been quiet about many things because I don’t like causing an uproar. I know what I believe, and, honestly, I probably have more wrong than right, but I do know that I’m called to be a light and a truth-bearer, and right now more than ever, I feel that’s what Christians need to do! We need to get off the bench and be a light.This episode may come off as harsh, but what I pray you hear in it is the urgency to be a critical thinker, to search for truth, and to get off the bench and pray for our nation. We need to be willing to step into the fire.FULL SHOW NOTES MENTIONED IN EPISODEReal Clear Politics"Get Off the Bench" Podcast with Heidi St. John CONNECT WITH MEFacebook:
Today we’re talking about working out to avoid burnout, and I know what it’s like to be in burnout — I’ve been there, and it’s not fun! This episode is very much teaching driven with a ton of great tips and tricks to get you in sync with your physiology so you can workout at your best.Today’s guest has a multifaceted journey, and she learned that the way she was training was a partial cause for her adrenal issues. Because of these issues, she’s realized how important it is for women to learn how to manage their energy in a culture that really supports productivity and constant hustle in workouts and life.Jenni Hulburt shares her story of workout to burnout and how it made her shift her mindset into how to adjust as her body dictated rather than just working out intensley every time.Jenni and I talk about how to move with your cyclical body without depletion and how our cycle mimics nature’s. We talk a bit about the cultural narrative around “more and harder is better” and why that messaging sets women up for overtraining and burnout.LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE TO HEARHow to move with your cyclical body without depletionMoving your body in sync with nature and why that’s beneficialSymptoms of adrenal issues and why your workouts may feel harder than usualWhat types of cultural and fitness messaging sets women up for overtraining and burnoutFULL SHOW NOTES MENTIONED IN EPISODEJenni’s Website: http://www.jennihulburt.comJenni’s Instagram: @jennihulburt Workout Without Burnout Blueprint: by Stacy SimmsWild Power by Alexandra PopeCONNECT WITH MEFacebook:
Today’s mother runner is another 2020 Boston Marathon qualifier. She has had so much life happen to her, but one thing she has come to find is that running has made her a better wife and mother and also changed her life in many ways, including helping her battle and overcome bipolar and anxiety diagnoses she was given at a young age of 18. MaryBeth Garnder has been running consistently since 2013. Her proudest moment as a runner happened in 2017 as she pushed her (then) 5-year-old daughter in a stroller 10 miles at a 9-minute pace.She’s grateful for every day of running, and I’m grateful to be able to have her on today to share with you. By the end of this episode, you’ll find a new gratitude for whatever it is that helps you balance your life and find joy, whether it’s running or some other activity. We all need something to drive us that makes us happy that we can use it as fuel for our lives.

What happens when you find out that what you believed for the past 14 years was almost truth, but it missed the mark by that much? If it’s almost truth, it’s not truth. Hold on tight because I’m going to get real and raw with you in this episode and share just what I’ve been wrestling with the past months and how I’ve shifted my mindset.Today I want to encourage you to continue learning and growing, and when you have a question about something, take it to God in prayer, search God’s Word, do some research, and find the truths. Don’t just take what you hear and run with it, but make sure it lines up with truth.The hardest part is discerning truths from almost truths because the almost truths are wrong, but they usually sound good and are packaged in an appealing way to make them look like truths.FULL SHOW NOTES…ng-with-my-faith/CONNECT WITH MEFacebook:
How many times have I made excuses because I didn’t feel like it, or I don’t think I have what it takes, or maybe it just seems too hard? But God wants to use our weaknesses, our pains, our trails, and turn them into our message. Today’s guest is a perfect example of this. A flesh-eating bacteria left her in a 3-week coma, and she lost all four of her limbs, becoming a quadruple amputee. Life would never be the same as she once knew it, but after a while, she chose to use her experience to empower others in gratitude, kindness, positivity, and faith, and that is when One Exceptional Life was born.By the end of this episode, you will be able to understand how to use the gifts God gave you through your struggles and why gratitude and positivity are essential to live one exceptional life.LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE TO HEARHer story of becoming a quadruple amputee and how it affected her life.The defining moment when she decided to use her struggle to empower others.How her family stepped up to help and the lessons they all learned through this painful experience.How gratitude played a huge role in her recovery and still does today.FULL SHOW NOTES MENTIONED IN EPISODEWendy's Blog: https://oneexceptionallife.comWendy's Facebook: One Exceptional LifeWendy's Pinterest: One Exceptional LifeOvercoming challenges is easy when you include gratitude in the mix.

Today we continue our Boston Marathon series. I'm hosting moms who qualified for the 2020 Boston Marathon, which was postponed to September and eventually canceled altogether. These women are resilient, and I'm excited to share their struggle/victory stories and why the 2020 Boston Marathon would have been their victory run.I was inspired to do this because I know how disappointed I was hearing the news of the cancelation when you work for years toward a goal only to have it ripped away from you, it can be devastating. We can't always schedule our circumstances, but we can choose our attitudes toward them, and these runners have chosen to use this disappointment to propel them forward in new goals.Today's guest didn't start her running journey until her 30s post children. She attempted a few times throughout her life, but it never gained attraction. She never planned to even run a marathon, and now she has seven under her belt, including three BQs, but this year would have been her first Boston Marathon.She's had to work through multiple injuries and figure out how to get her training in with a busy family and work schedule. Sometimes we push our goals to the side because we think we can't have both a good family structure and a big goal, but Jen proves you can have both, and by the end of this episode, I think you'll be itching to develop a big goal for yourself if you don't have one already. Let's get chatting!LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE TO HEARHow she pushed past her comfort zone and the hard to begin her journey of enjoying running and racing.How creating a mantra sheet helped her stay positive and get through the 26.2 miles!How she found joy in the journey even when things don't come together just the way she had first planned.FULL SHOW NOTES MENTIONED IN EPISODEConnect with Jen on FacebookSnag Mind Over Marathon on AmazonCONNECT WITH MEFacebook:

Have you ever felt like something about you is minimizing what you can do? This something lessened your confidence and almost made you back down and quit on yourself. Maybe it’s a physical ailment, or maybe it’s a physical trait, or maybe it’s something someone said about you.Today’s guest has a pretty unique story about how growing up, having the same name as a celebrity, actually held her back and kept her feeling stuck. Today we dive into that and see how she went from unconfident because of this unique factor to allowing it to help her thrive. Lucy Liu is a certified life coach helping women in life transitions get unstuck, beat overwhelm, see clarity, set new goals, live a happier fulfilling life, and thrive.

I have a love/hate relationship with social media. It can be a great place to connect, ask questions, and network, but it can also be a place of shaming, comparison, and bullying. Our minds are so important to protect. God says to fix our eyes on what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, or praiseworthy.Do you find yourself scrolling mindlessly or engaging in online arguments that aren’t beneficial? Maybe it’s time to detox your mind when it comes to social media. Detoxing the mind is as important as building your muscles and detoxing your body. I'm ready to disengage and focus on what is lovely, how about you?In this short chat, I’m going to share some negatives to social media and why we need to be careful with what we engage in, but I’m also going to share three ways to use social media effectively. It’s not going away anytime soon, and, for many of us, the benefits of using it far outweigh the cons of not.But, how do we ensure that we don’t let our minds go down rabbit trails or let our emotions get the best of us as we scroll? That’s what we’ll talk about today.FULL SHOW NOTES MENTIONED IN EPISODERed Hot Winners CommunityCONNECT WITH MEFacebook:

These 10 disciplines are easy to do, but they are also easy not to do. It all comes down to choice. We need to take responsibility for our own dreams and goals because unless we take the necessary action, we’ll never see the results.Just like you need all the ingredients listed in a recipe to make a delicious cookie, you need all the ingredients we talk about today to make your dreams come true. You might be able to make things happen without one or two or even five of the disciplines, but it will absolutely take longer and be more complicated, and here’s the kicker. The longer it takes to see the results, the easier it is to quit before they show up. These 10 disciplines are the shortcut!

I met today’s guest as she was working on completing her first book, Motherwhelmed, which just released in April and is available on Amazon. At the time, I was working with a self-publishing company as a project manager and helping walk Beth through the final steps of publishing. Her story and message resonated with me then, and as I continue to read her book, I find that I’ve come out of a similar place as she has, and I just know if I relate to it, more moms will too. We immerse ourselves in what we feel motherhood should entail, and we lose ourselves in the diapers and feedings. Sometimes we forget that tending to our own needs is just as important as tending to our babes because if we are not filled up, we will have nothing to give, and we will be left feeling unworthy and frustrated in our very important role as a mother.LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE TO HEARHow to no longer feel a never-ending losing battle in motherhood.Why meeting our own needs is vital to be able to express our values.How to let go of the perfect picture of motherhood and embrace who you are as a woman.What she learned during her time writing and publishing MotherwhelmedFULL SHOW NOTES MENTIONED IN EPISODEMotherwhelmed BookBeth's Website: www.revolutionfromhome.comBeth's Instagram: @revolutionfromhomeBeth's Facebook: WITH MEFacebook:
The 2020 Boston Marathon was at first postponed to September and later canceled and shifted to virtual due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which was unsettling for many runners who qualified and were left questioning if they would still have the opportunity to snag a bid to the 2021 Boston race.Thankfully, the Boston Athletic Association is allowing 2020 qualified runners to do the virtual race as well as apply for the 2021 race, but this doesn't guarantee a spot in the historic and sought-after race. In the coming months, I'm bringing a few mother runners on the podcast who would have considered the 2020 Boston Marathon their victory run and dive into their struggle/victory stories and what it took to get them there. The 2020 Boston Marathon would have been Anat Gotfried's victory run because she thrives off a challenge and wanted a goal to separate her from the ordinary runner. Today we dive into her running journey and talk about the struggles of trying to get the necessary training in while performing all the roles motherhood brings. We even chat about her experience running a marathon 6 months pregnant and postpartum.It took mental fortitude for her to qualify for the 2020 Boston Marathon. Find out how running back-to-back marathons actually helped her solidify that Boston qualifying time.
