Fit + Vibrant You

Eat when you're hungry, stop when you're satiated. Sounds simple enough, but simple isn't always easy, especially if you have a history of dieting and disordered eating patterns.  For many women, after outsourcing their food choices to meal plans and diets, listening to the body's signals can be challenging. Sure, it's easy to identify when you're ravenous, and stuffed, but what about the less extreme feelings of hunger and satiety? And on this week's podcast, we're talking all about HUNGER.  💕How to actually tell if you're hungry 💕How to tell if you've had enough 💕Ninja...

Fit + Vibrant You

We're going back to the archives and releasing a past podcast episode on a very important topic: how to set inspiring goals. You've probably heard that setting goals is important... but chances are, you're not creating goals that inspire consistent action. We are either motivated to move way from something we don't want (a push goals) or toward something we do want (a pull goal). Both types of goals have their utility, but for long-term success, whether it's in weight loss, your health, business, finances or relationships, we want more PULL goals.  The action steps might be the same,...

Bronnie Ware, an Australian nurse who spent several years caring for patients during the last 12 weeks of their lives,  says the #1 regret of the dying is "I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me." She adds "When people realise that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made." The dictionary definition of courage is "mental or moral...

“It can be tempting to blame failure on a lack of willpower or a scarcity of talent, and to attribute success to hard work, effort, and grit. To be sure, those things matter. What is interesting, however, is that if you examine how human behavior has been shaped over time, you discover that motivation (and even talent) is often overvalued. In many cases, the environment matters more.” -James Clear, Author of Atomic Habits When it comes to making healthier eating choices, a few simple changes to your environment can make those choices. It’s not that the fit healthy people are...

Ever find yourself standing in the pantry, pondering the options for a midday snack when you're bored? Do you negotiate the wine on a Tuesday night, even though you committed you would reserve the pinot for weekends only? Do you justify the chocolate after dinner by vowing you'll 'eat clean' tomorrow? So much of the struggle of sticking to healthier eating habits, or losing weight, is simply due to arguing with yourself.  "I want this". "I shouldn't have this". "Just this one time won't hurt". "I can make up for it tomorrow".  "If I have it now I'll be less likely to indulge later...

Dr. David McKenzie recently spoke at the Chilliwack Women’s Health Summit, and event I organized to support our local Starfish Backpack Program.  He spoke for 20 minutes, and left everyone wanting more.

So, I've invited Dr. McKenzie onto the podcast.

My goal for the Fit and Vibrant You podcast is to give your the resources, tool, motivation and inspiration to live a fit, vibrant life.  And in order to thrive and be our best selves, we need sex, connection, love and physical pleasure.   When we are nourished through meaningful relationships, pleasure, passion and purpose, we can have a more relaxed relationship with food and body. 

In this podcast, we talk all about sex:

  • What problems can arise in your sex life
  • Body image, body shame and sexual health
  • What's a 'normal' number of times to have sex a life
  • Very specific things you can do today to improve your experience in the bedroom (or kitchen, living room.... ;)

About my guest, Dr. David McKenzie
David attended university in Winnipeg and Toronto where he earned his Master’s degree in divinity and pastoral psychology at Wycliffe College, University of Toronto. He was ordained an Anglican Priest in 1974 and served in that capacity for twenty-three years as a church pastor and seven additional years as a federal penitentiary chaplain.

 
In 2002 David retired from church leadership and pursued his doctoral degree at the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco where he was awarded his Ph.D. in 2005 in the discipline of human sexuality. That same year he founded Dr. McKenzie & Associates, which has become a thriving practice with, at its zenith, four Associates in two offices serving the needs of individuals and couples in Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.
