SOCIAL MEDIA

My Podcast Rotation

I have quite the commute to work. On average, about an hour each way; some days it can be more. 

I love to use my time commuting to focus on personal development and have found that podcasts are my go-to when I need a little motivation. 

I started listening to podcasts about 2-3 years ago. Since I am constantly looking for new  podcasters to follow, I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you guys today. 


Oh. Em. Gee. You guys may recognize Jenna from social media. She was shamed for being heavier than her super fit husband, but it backfired because she went even more viral than she already was and sky-rocketed her career. This podcast is perfect for entrepreneurs and social media influencers (or those who want to be). It’s jam-packed with great tips and takeaways that you can implement into your daily life. If you’re looking for inspiration in your business, or inspiration in life in general, this is a total hit. 

I’m still getting into this one, and can’t say that every topic really resonates with me, but this has been great so far. Think back to your high school days and those subjects that you would’ve found valuable – like, how to balance a check book or complete your taxes. This channels puts all those subjects into one neat little box that you can access at the touch of your finger. I think my favorite one so far was “...that men need more nurturing than they’re willing to admit.”

I found this newer channel through my BeachBody coach Kim. She was actually featured on episode 1. I love that this podcast helps you identify your passion and gives you super motivation on how to get started. The people she interviews shows you that so many people have started where you currently are (or may be) and they’ve reached and exceeded their goals. 

This podcast got me started on the obsession. We’re now in Season 3 and I’m still getting caught up on it. Season 1 followed the story of a high school boy who was charged with the murder of his fellow student, and Season 2 follows the story of an Army guy who was held hostage in a war country. It basically takes the story that the media shared and debunks much of it, showing that not every story can be told on the surface. SOOO good. 

If you’re a fan of The Bachelor/Bachelorette and/or Bachelor in Paradise, download this NOW. Kaitlyn interviews contestants and gets insider scoop that they won’t show you on the TV show. It’s really a light-hearted, girl chat over wine kind of show. 

If you read Monday’s blog post you’ll know I have a total girl crush on Rachel. If you haven’t read Girl Wash Your Face yet, do it. Like, now. And then download this podcast. It is like the book on steroids. This is filled with so many truth bombs it’s not even funny. 

There you have it, the podcasts that are on my regular rotation. What podcasts are you guys listening to?

The Last 90 Days

I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret. I am a promise breaker. I break promises all the time and I’m ready to stop.

I didn’t come to this realization until I listened to the Girl Wash Your Face audiobook by Rachel Hollis. I’m actually re-listening to it right now and taking in even more than I did the last time.

What Rachel says in the one chapter really resonated with me. She said something along the lines of, “If you had a best friend who you constantly made plans with and she always canceled on you last minute, would you still be her friend?”

Guys. I don’t want to be friends with myself!

I break promises to myself all the time. ALL. THE. TIME.

For example, I have started 14 BeachBody programs. Literally guys. I planned out the workouts in my calendar, I meal planned according to the little color-coded containers, and I meal prepped after a major grocery hall.

I promised myself that I’ll start Monday. That this time would be different. That this time I’ll complete the program in it’s entirety and submit my before/after results for that free t-shirt.

But alas, a few days into the program and I lose all my steam. Ultimately, I just give up completely and go back to chocolate cake and red wine.

Why am I telling you this?

I’m in a SERIOUS funk. Like, almost as bad as when I lost my Dad. And, I need your help.

I’ve committed to the #Last90Days. Simply, I’m closing out 2018 focusing on implementing five habits daily.

If you sign up at the link above, you’ll receive a weekly message from Rachel Hollis, author of Girl Wash Your Face, to help you stick with the five things you’re committing to for the rest of the year.

What are my five things? I’m glad you asked!


I challenge you to think of how YOU will end your #Last90Days. What five habits will you focus on implementing every day from now until 2019?

Let me know in the comments below.
