4 Things I'm Bad At and Why It's Important to Challenge Yourself

podcast Jul 18, 2022

Welcome to Season 2 of the Strong Feels Good Podcast!

I have been running 2x per week, usually early in the morning when the sun is rising. It’s really been a super peaceful experience. For so long, wondered why are people would doing this... waking up early and running? YUCK!

But the more I do i, the more I get it. Like working out, it’s more than just the physical aspect. It’s about being able to wake up and be completely immersed in your thoughts where you can have some serious time with you, yourself, and nothing else. But sometimes that can be a scary place to be.

Like many people, I tend to try and distract myself so that I don’t need to deal with bigger issues happening in my life. I keep as busy as possible, but running forces me to be alone with my thoughts in the morning to think things through.

So this week I decided it’s time to talk more about these thoughts I’ve been having so that maybe they can help you along your journey. Maybe...

Analyzing My Blood Work with Jonathan Mendoza (Part 1)

jonathan mendoza podcast Jul 18, 2022

I’m SO excited about this 3 part series! I got some blood work done, and I am sharing my results with YOU. We’re going to go through my lab results with Jonathan Mendoza, a nurse practitioner and chiropractor. If you want to read and follow along, here are my results!

My scan looked at my body as a whole, but focused specifically on my heart, because my whole body is pretty much connected to it! We’ll look at how my liver, thyroid, and hormones are doing. A lot of times, elite athletes like me don’t get the whole picture. In part 1, we’re going to look at my cholesterol, my blood sugar, and my fat levels. The results might surprise you!

I hope this series helps you learn more about what your labs can tell you about your body. Stay tuned for part 2 next week!

Warrior Spotlight: Angela R.

warrior spotlight Jul 18, 2022

I'm so pumped to celebrate Angela! No, not me... a different Angela! Grab the tissues... you might need them for this!

Angela is from Vancouver, BC, Canada. She's a lawyer by trade a proud mom of two miracle babies... and I say miracle babies because this will segue into her story of being in recovery from a severe eating disorder that she battled for years and was allegedly supposed to prevent her from having children. She's also recently opened a gelato and coffee shop, which has been her passion project! On top of her successful career as a lawyer, being a mom, and opening her shop, Angela has still found the time to take care of herself and get her exercise done in a healthy, positive way.

When she started Strong Feels Good, Angela had an addiction to over-exercising and was recovering from her ED. She was sleeping 3-4 hours a night and doing cardio 6-7 days. She was so used to cutting, cutting, cutting, so gaining weight was so hard for her mentally. While most people come to...

Analyzing My Blood Work with Jonathan Mendoza (part 3)

jonathan mendoza podcast Jul 18, 2022

Welcome to the third and final installment of my blood work analysis with Jonathan Mendoza! I learned SO much from sitting down with Jonathan. It turns out… I’m not as healthy as I thought! Who knew? I hope this series has helped you learn more about what your labs can tell you about your body and maybe even inspired you to have a workup done to see what’s going on in your body that you may not even be aware of. 

If you want to read and follow along, I posted the results  here!.

In part 3, we’re going to talk about a HUGE thing for women (and for many of my clients): hormones! Full disclosure: I am on birth control and I have been since I was 18. How is that affecting my estrogen levels? How can birth control affect your body long-term? 

I would love to hear your feedback on this series I did! Be sure to leave a review, send me a DM on instagram, or tag me in stories!
