Episode 40: How to stop getting in your own way (excuses, self-sabotage and procrastination)

Are you your worst enemy?

The # 1 answer I get when I ask women what is standing in the way between them and the life they want (healthier body, fit, better mood and hormones, etc)

I know you're doing the best you can to live the healthiest life possible, but if you want to stop getting in your own way when it comes to your diet, exercise and mindset - this episode is for you.

Things I'll cover:

The science behind excuses, lies, procrastination, and self-sabotage

The negative effects of those

A cool story from my personal research endeavor

A powerful exercise to stop coming up with excuses

Some actionable ways to power through things that get in your way.

As usual, all the cool things are happening in my private Facebook community and on Insta- stories. Screenshot the episode you're listening and tag me with your insights and a-ha moments so I can cheer you on!
