Happy new year! It's a new year, maybe you're itching to get going on some physical goals that you have set for yourself this year. And so I thought it would be kind of fun to share with you some of the things that worked and didn't work for me in 2020, and also include some of my goals for 2021. I'll cap off the end of the episode by talking about some of my goals, and I'll share those with you. And maybe that'll spark something in you as you're thinking about 2021 and what you want to create this year.
We are wrapping up another year. But I for one am excited for 2021 and what it's going to bring. Way back in 2018, I recorded Episode 13 and I gave really great advice about how to think about New Year's resolutions and how to go about breaking them down into actual action items that you can achieve during the year. And so today on the podcast, I wanted to dive into a very timely topic of New Year's resolutions. And now I want to layer into this episode talking more about the “being” part of setting g
I have my sister on the podcast today. She did amazing things with sports so we're going to talk about her playing rugby and making it to the All-American team, which is a real big deal. Also, she shares her transition away from being someone on a team into motherhood. I know a lot of us to go through to have things to change and have new priorities and rearranging our life according to where you're at right now. And I love what she had to say about that transition.
In episode 111, we talked about how to create a plan that's going to really be effective for you. So today, I wanted to dive into kind of the next step and I think this is one of the biggest problems that I see a lot of women struggling with is the execution of the plan. We're gonna dive into why you struggle to stay on your plan, and how we can figure out how to be more effective in that, how we can be more effective of making a decision or having a plan and actually executing on that plan.
Today I'm going to chat with Leslie about her experience going through a reverse diet so that you can hear from somebody who came into the process, not really expecting to go through a reverse diet and did it anyway and able to see the results she wanted. I think it's important to share these stories because it starts to make it real and understand that all the emotions that you may be feeling as you think about this process of starting a reverse diet are totally normal.
I'm just so itching to have you listen to this interview that I had with Kiki. We talk about a whole range of topics, about eating, lifting, but most importantly, we talk about the idea of eating more to weigh less. You might ask, how can that be a thing? How can eat more to weigh less be a thing that it like does it scientifically work? And so we actually dive into that concept. And it can be such a revolutionary game-changer for so many women.
I have an awesome guest for today. At her age, she says that she's never looked better. I bring Mary Ann onto the podcast to share with you somebody who has done it. I want you to sit back and listen to her story and her perspective. And what she's experienced as she's gone through the aging process and how macros have been able to work with her just as well.
We're rolling into the holiday season and It's that time of the year for indulgence and that's known for a lot of women equated to the time when you gain weight, and then we hit New Years, and then the new year's resolutions come out and then the weight loss starts and you know, wash, rinse, repeat, many of us have been familiar with that, that pattern over and over and over again. And so I thought it would be a good thing to record a podcast episode and have a chat about how to succeed during this time.
Today I have a bunch of my friends together. In fact, we decided to bring team Biceps After Babies on for another podcast episode. And so I thought it would be fun, actually, my team thought it would be fun to have them come on and to interview me. So a lot of times on the podcast, I interview other people and ask them questions, and they thought it would be fun to twist that around and have them come on and interview me. So I said, heck yes. Let's do it, that sounds like a lot of fun and so here we are.
A lot of people are building home gyms right now, especially with COVID and so I thought to talk about how my we built our home gym over the years, the brands that we use, our space, and how you can take this information and start to build something that's going to work for your lifestyle. So I want you to figure out creative ways to make it work for you and your space, and your lifestyle and what your goals are because that's really what the most important thing is.
Today my guest is someone that's a little bit different because most people in the fitness industry wouldn't put the two of us together, "opposing sides". But it's interesting that both of us share the same goal and that’s where we want you to get to. I believe that's the goal for most women in the fitness industry, to empower women, we want women to be able to live their best life. And so we have already had a really good conversation and I'm really excited for you to listen to it.
Today we're doing another Ask Amber anything and we thought it would be a fun idea to do an “Ask me anything about motherhood”. And so motherhood is a really important part of me, it's a really important part of my story. It's a really important part of what makes me what I am and, and what makes my brand what I am. And so I thought it would be fun to see what questions that you guys had for me on motherhood, and we have some good ones.
We have a very special guest, Jamia Ponder. She speaks to something that I think a lot of you will relate to and that is this idea of putting yourself back on your to-do list. I really wanted to invite Jamia on so we can have this conversation so we could share on how we can start to uncover ourselves and get back to the essence of who we are so that you can show up for the other people in your life at a higher level.
Today is going to be a good episode. Definitely, you're going to walk away with some breakthroughs and some tools that you can use in your journey, because we're going to be talking about something that you experience during your journey, during a journey towards any goal probably, and that is discouragement. And we're going to talk about how you're going to make it through that and what you're gonna be able to tell yourself to make it through that experience.
Amanda and I have this great conversation about feeling amazing naked and what that takes and how you can start to work towards at this moment right now. And a little secret. It doesn't have anything to do with changing your body or losing fat. There are some actionable steps she shared that you can take today to start moving towards that place of confidence. So I would love it if you listen to this podcast episode and you're inspired to start to take some action.
