Welcome to episode #99 of the Fitlandia Podcast. Today my guest is Evelyn DeDominicus from Connecticut where she believes by practicing in collaboration with other professionals they can develop a stronger connection with their clients. We are going to talk exploring ways to moderate alcohol; why it is important to understand our behaviors and habits associated with alcohol.
I have to be perfect when really the intention is to help figure out what foods work best for your body and doing a clean elimination and then at the end adding foods back in one at a time. And it is, it’s the same whether it’s any kind of reliance…
I started off saying, I’m the type of person that’s on or off, right? I’m like a light switch. And so if I start to say to myself, I’m the type of person that can take it or leave it. And that’s empowering. That’s an empowering statement, right?
You’re figuring out what works for you and your life, but I just want to encourage everyone to do that.
It is about ending the shame. It is about understanding that our brain is actually […]
Welcome to episode #98 of the Fitlandia Podcast. Today my guest is Frank Gjata from Conscious Ink founded in Bend, Oregon. Today, we are going to talk about why manifesting your dream life by aligning your true self is important for your building a positive mindset.
It’s one of the things I say when we do this practice of reframing negative thoughts into positive is that you don’t have to believe the statement, but imagine what it would feel like the emotions that would come up if you believed it fully and completely.
And so the invitation again is just to allow those feelings to breathe and allow them to go through. Now you’re making a big shift right then and there and it will open up space for the new thought pattern to be put in.
Take three deep breaths and just literally imagine like this elevator coming out of your mind and but down below your throw and literally into other parts of your body and just start to notice what you feel like.
It’s just setting you up to have you […]
Welcome to episode #97 of the Fitlandia Podcast. Today my guests are Erin Moone and Dionne Del Carlo from StarCycle, founded right here in Portland, Oregon. Today, the three of us are going to talk about why taking a break from tech is so important for your mind.
…this sense of urgency that we all have that is really inflated and exaggerated and not real. So it’s giving ourselves permission to say that’s going to wait. We’re not brain surgeons.
I know for myself I will eat quickly and not really taste what I’m eating and just getting it down and onto the next thing, but if I put my phone away, engage in conversation, listen to the laughter, then I’m taking in all those senses and actually tasting my food. It does taste better because I’m paying attention.
So related to the classes we run, our bodies are physically moving quickly and we’re working really hard and our heart rates are up. But because we’re disconnecting from any distractions, we’re able to have that meditative state where you really can acknowledge your thoughts and acknowledge how you’re […]

There were a number of things that had been put in front of me to help with my wellness. And then a really good friend who is a holistic nutritionist just one day – and I don’t know what it was about this day or what it was about these words that she said to me, but she just said, “Hey Sean, let’s do keto […]

When it comes to the patient’s time as humans, our brain is always looking to close the loop. So we automatically want to set expectations such as we say this in our head. “Well, I’ve worked long enough. I worked hard enough, I invested so much money, I thought I would have been further along”, right? Yes. And then you start doubting yourself. Maybe this isn’t working, is it my hormones? Is there something else? And then you start second-guessing. But when you really think about, well, who set the expectations? Where I tell people anytime they start the health journey, number one…
…it’s a journey, not a destination.
I’m really big into like when we make an agreement, you could let me down, but listen, I […]
