Episode 11: Let’s Explore Stress

Ep 11: Let’s Explore Stress

Today’s episode is all about stress.  What is stress?  Pressure and tension that are either from external sources such as other people, like family or our boss or internal sources from ourselves.

The state of mental emotional strain as a result of demanding circumstances.

Your negative feelings can create physiological changes such as changes in your skin, heart rate, digestion, joints, muscles, energy levels, even the hairs on your head and the countless cells and systems you don’t even know about that are effected with every Emotion!

You can not always eliminate stress, but you can learn to manage it. There are of course the ways we all know about but it never hurts to hear them again; exercise such as walking, riding your bike, running, and swimming. And then there are ways to calm the jitters such as taking a hot bath, mediating, laying down or even taking a nap or sleeping more hours.

We also discuss digestion and STRESS’ toll; 1. decreased nutrients, 2 decreased oxygen to the gut, 3. elevated cholesterol, 4. elevated triglycerides 5. increased food sensitivities and 6. heart burn.

We go into a little more details about heartburn, stress and the over use of anti acids. This part is very important.

I hope you are inspired to make at least one change either by adding something positive in your life to manage your stress better like taking up walking or riding your bike, or that you start to improve your overall life and stop working 70 and 80 hours a week.

A Quality of life requires a lot of things

A  life of Quality requires a lot of things…its complicated and complex.

We need to tend to our relationships, we need to be careful with the things we put into our bodies and we need to bring income into our reality in order to manage a home, transportation, organization, fun and whatever we deem important.

The first part of our young adult life usually only requires that we manage our own life, but when we have children, then our lives become more complicated, because we have to do everything for our life and for the young ones we give life to.

For the sake of today’s post, I want to focus on your needs only.  What are those needs? What are the needs that will make you feel that your life is rich and full and satisfying.

If you are able to manage your spending, your income, your calories and your exercise, you probably would not be ready this post.

So, I will assume that you are struggling with some or all of those mentioned above.

Understanding what motivates our needs helps us manage those needs. I want you to think about why you spend unplanned money, I want you think to about what makes you eat foods that you know you probably shouldn’t. I want you to then think about why need might be behind those choices.

I also want you to think about why you work where you work? And what you like about what you do there. I also want you to explore what you would do differently if you had time to do it over.

We will come bake to this topic later this month.  Mostly I want you to explore where you are now and why you are there. It is not an easy task. Learning to become self aware is the first step to mastering your life. One can not have a life of quality without being in charge of themselves.

Episode 10: How to Choose Your Diet

Hello Everyone, today’s episode is about how to choose your diet for weight loss and a healthy life.

We will cover the 5 key concepts;

1. Choose a diet that fits your personality. Another words, choose one you think you will follow. Something you think you can do long term.

2. Choose a diet that is in line with where you currently are. Another words, do not choose to a vegan diet,  if you are eating meat three times a day and its your favorite.

3. Choose a diet that is safe and healthy.  Do some research to see if there has been any bad testimonials. Also, use the reasonable test to make sure that the diet makes sense. Please do not use any supplements and teas that say they will help you lose weight. These are almost always unsafe.

4. If you have no idea which diet is best: Choose Weight Watchers. It is an excellent program with education, accountability and no unsafe practices. If it sounds super easy, then it probably will be temporary weight loss and it won’t last. Permanent Weight loss takes time.

5. And lastly, look at what are your trigger foods and make a list of how you will reduce and reduce some more until they are rarely in your diet. You can lose a lot of weight by breaking up with high calorie low quality foods and drinks.

Check back in on the website, I will list 5 diets to look up and get to know.

Thank you for listening today

1. Weight Watchers

2. Jenny Craig

3. 80 10 10 by Douglas Graham – I recommend the book on audible.com

I recommend strongly that you study diets that are life style diets, not diets for short term results. Gradual small changes towards your long term goals is best.



Episode 09: How She Lost 95 Pounds: Transformation

Ep 09: How She Lost 95 Pounds

Today’s Episode is about a woman who lost 95 pounds: Kerrie Davis. Today Kerrie weighs 140/145 pounds.

When she started her health journey, she weighed in at 242/250 pounds. She was on several medications, smoking and eating foods that did not make her feel good. Her life was spinning out of control.

Then something happened. She turned a corner when she met a healthcare practitioner who talked to her about nutrition. Over the next year, Kerrie took control over her life…she started to put herself first. She gave up the $90,000 year job and stress filled life and turned over a new leaf by getting healthy.

Listen to this podcast for at least one nugget of insight. You can email: robyne@hemingwaysheart.com for Kerrie’s info or mine or go to

Episode 08: Fat & Quality of Life

Ep 08:  Fat & Quality of Life

Today’s Episode is about the 4 ways in which FAT is stealing our quality of life.

1. We worry about what others think about our fat.

2. We are unhappy about how the fat feels; tight clothing, pressure, unable to cross your legs, unable to exercise without intense discomfort

3. Self Worth- we feel bad about ourselves because we are fat and beat ourselves up over and over, hence being our own internal bully.

4. Health- our fat is robbing us from good health

We are going to look at a few things we can do to improve this FAT REALITY. To include-be nice to yourself!

Of course, it’s just a start. I mention RichRoll.com, Josh LaJaunie, Iron Cowboy and Mojo For Running.

I also mention Teeccino, a coffee alternative with Organic Carob, Barley, Chicory, Dates, Almonds, and Figs. For more information about Teeccino go to Teeccino.com
