REAL TALK: Getting your period back, over-training & finding what foods bloat you! with Better Being Steph
In this episode of The Rise & Conquer Podcast, host Georgie sits down with Steph, the owner of the Better Being Steph, a platform for wellbeing, health and fitness. The topic of today’s episode is overtraining, orthorexia, finding foods that fit (or bloat) you, how to get your monthly period back, and much more.
Steph shares about how she changed her training routine, as it was too intense and negatively affected her body, social life, energy, and health. She was over-training, which is a mistake people can make sometimes when they push themselves too hard. However, when over-training occurs, the law of diminishing returns kicks into gear, and those ‘returns’ create issues for our bodies. Such negative consequences include the loss of muscle mass, loss of essential minerals, losing too much fat way too quickly, creating a hormone imbalance, and can even cause the cessation of a menstrual period. Your body will tell you when you are pushing too hard, and you better heed its warning. She suggests finding someone with the qualifications that can help you in setting up a good and fitting workout routine.
Steph also fought against and overcame orthorexia (nervosa,) an eating disorder characterized by preoccupation with being healthy and eating healthy food. She fell into this disorder when she started getting compliments on how healthy and attractive she appeared, which made her push even harder with her exercise and eating obsession at the time. So, it is good advice to avoid going overboard with health advice, and establish a balanced lifestyle that will even be healthier for you. After a while you will notice the patterns and find out which ones you may try to avoid. Steph shares that she will soon include some great recipes on her website Better Being Steph, her Instagram, and her other website Sneaky Wholefoods, so make sure to pay a visit and sign up for her newsletter.
Thanks for listening and I’ll catch up with you next time on the podcast!
The art of saying "No" & How to set healthy boundaries!
Do you find yourself saying yes to everything, even when you really feel like saying no? At the end of last year, I caught myself saying ‘yes’ to a bunch of things that weren’t making me happy or fulfilling my personal goals, purely because I just wanted to keep someone else happy! By putting other people first before myself, I ended up feeling cranky that I’d spent time and energy into things that didn’t fulfill me and by the end of the year, I felt burnt out and run down! And guess what? I didn’t spend half as much time achieving the things I wanted too! I think this is an area that LOTS of women struggle with… so this episode is for all my ‘people pleasers’ out there who need to learn how to say NO when it doesn’t suit them!
How to get anything you want!! Law of attraction, manifesting & gratitude hacks with Larissa Emara
In this episode of Rise & Conquer host Georgie sits down with Larissa Emara, the founder of I am happy, I am here to discuss about the Law of Attraction, how to be grateful in life, and how to get anything you want. Larissa started using gratitude journals about a decade ago, and this helped get her mind in the right place. She decided to make her own type of a gratitude journal, which proved to be a very successful venture.
The conversation starts about the Law of Attraction. Larissa defines the Law of Attraction as the vibrations we radiate that depend on our mood and outlook on the world at the moment, and how it attracts the like – a dull mood attracts dull behaviors and happenings; while when we are happy and inspired, it seems as if the world magically turns into an open, friendly, and inspiring place around us! Her advice is to make a mind shift by – Step 1: start by working on your vibrations, so that you start feeling happy as if you got everything you are asking for. Step 2: visualizing – you make a visualizing journal where you stick photos of the things you want to have in your life, and then by looking at it evoke the feelings that you would feel if you had that thing. This should be done regularly to notice the difference i.e. 3 times a week, everyday, and similar.
When speaking about manifesting, Larissa believes that it is taking control over what we want and using visualization to achieve that. It’s about paying attention to the feelings you are putting out. Once you discover what you truly want, and what you can manifest, then you can bring that into your life. You should focus on the feelings you want, rather than the thing or person itself that you believe you want. On the other hand, you can unintentionally project negative attitude towards things and people, and have it swing back like a boomerang. This typically happens if you have subconscious beliefs that certain things are scarce or hard and stressful to come by i.e. money, success, desirable partners. Gratitude is really connected to the Law of Attraction. You can always find something to feel grateful for in your life. Practicing gratitude will make it easier to shift into higher-level vibration, and improve the quality of your everyday experience and life. Sometimes people feel that they are unworthy of manifesting, but Larissa explains that every single person is worthy of happiness and can achieve it.
For the wrap up, Larissa shares some tips on what you can do today to evoke the Law of Attraction. You can start by simply making the shift towards feeling happy and grateful. Then you can do visualization. And finally, do your own research into this and discover that there is a lot under the surface. She recommends the book The Secret as a good start. You really need to believe what you want is going to come— even though you can’t see it, it’s there.
Staying in your lane: How to stop comparing yourself & feel enough
Do you walk a fine line between admiring someone and wishing you were them? As women, it is in our very nature to compete. We compete for men, for jobs and for a voice, but we have also developed the nasty habit of comparing ourselves to other women - and this is usually because we feel like they represent something that we don’t have, but secretly (or not so secretly) want in life. GIRLS, it is my pleasure to remind you that we are all running our own races, we are all on our own timelines and we all have our very own journeys to fulfil. We are UNIQUE and that’s what makes us so special. This podcast episode will teach you how to finally stop playing the comparison game, and finally begin to feel as incredible as you already are.
