This week’s episode focuses on Lynn’s daily routine. It’s not female specific information and in many ways, Lynn’s routine matches pretty closely with Drew’s routine, which he shared last week. Lynn realizes there is so much more to health care than just a number on a scale. While she gets her blood tests done to ensure she’s feeding her body in the way it needs to be fed, she uses her intuition to tell her which foods and exercise she needs daily. And to keep stress from bringing her down, she meditates, reads, journals and laughs each and every day. 

 

Key Takeaways:

[5:32] Habit stacking helps to form Lynn’s daily routine.

[7:50] Lynn reviews her gratitude list and repeats positive affirmations before she gets out of bed every morning. 

[13:17] Laughter is medicine and it changed Lynn’s life.

[14:30] Meditation helps Lynn to focus inward, where true change starts.

[20:14] What do intuitive eating and intuitive exercise mean?

[23:03] Complex carbohydrates like potatoes digest slower than simple carbs like doughnuts.

[26:14] You don’t have to have a structured workout to have a healthy body.

[27:57] Lynn uses reading and journaling as her self-care practice before bed every night.

[31:56] Which supplements does Lynn consume every day?

Drew and Lynn are sharing the story of their lives, their relationship and their divorce in today’s episode. Their wish is that the information helps others make it through the hard decisions they may be facing based on what they have learned along the journey of their marriage. This very open and vulnerable exchange focuses on three important points of encouragement. One is having a long-term vision for your life. Two is to not bring up past events and three is to focus on yourself. A response to a situation will almost always bring about better results than a reaction.

 

Key Takeaways:

[6:07] Life is better if you can learn to not take yourself so seriously.

[8:20] Hanging on to a marriage for reasons of pride is just prolonging an unhappy situation.

[11:14] “The decision wasn’t made lightly. We were in hardcore counseling for five years before our divorce.”

[16:06] Finding a way to love yourself can help you and your relationship heal.

[24:56] The 3 things that helped Drew & Lynn maintain a long-term relationship after a divorce.

[42:59] Being married is hard and being divorced is hard. You have to choose which hard you want.

Once a wrestler always a wrestler. Jim Harshaw Jr. is a professional speaker, consultant, and a former Division 1 All-American wrestler. He helps pro athletes, CEOs and coaches to focus on the actions they need to be taking every day in order to reach their goals. He shares with them the power of the process and the power of failure. He has received accolades about his TEDx talk, Why I Teach my Children to Fail and has created a framework everyone can follow to find their own success. He and Drew share their beliefs on which mindset shifts need to occur while striving to be the best and how wrestling is an ideal physical workout.

 

Key Takeaways:

[7:56] In wrestling, you get comfortable being uncomfortable and not just in the singlet.

[13:13] Jim felt hopeless and felt he didn’t have what it takes.

[20:37] The Naval Academy offered me the second highest paying wrestling assistant coach job in the country but, I wanted to sow my oats first.

[22:54] Jim’s 4-step blueprint for success allowed him to push through anything and obtain balance in his life.

It wasn’t until he embraced his vulnerable side that he was able to break free of his addiction and start his spiritual journey. His upcoming world-changing book is for Dads who need to cultivate vulnerability in their lives.

Maddy Moon is a 24-year-old female with strong convictions about sharing her message with the world. As a high school student, Maddy was introduced to food documentaries which changed her way of eating. She adopted vegetarianism and rapidly dropped weight. And even though she didn’t need to lose the weight, people started praising her for her new look. She became obsessed with the attention she was getting and decided to work with a trainer to prepare her for a physique competition. She has since realized her value is more than how she looks and she wants to make sure women have the tools to become body positive. She has written two books and her website has become a resource for those who would like to learn from her experiences.

 

Key Takeaways:

[7:54] Maddy shares the beginning of her body obsession and how her eating habits were getting her noticed.

[13:55] Labels are more powerful than we think they are. They can make us a prisoner.

[21:48] Maddy lost herself and her health while preparing for her first physique competition.

As a former professional ice hockey player and wrestler, Paul Gagné has always had an interest in using the body’s natural systems to obtain peak performance. He currently trains high-level athletes using Posturology, Sports Physiology, and Strength Conditioning along with a Japanese style nutrition and diet regiment. He advises to only take supplements that activate the body’s natural systems, but only if you really need to.

 

Key Takeaways:

[5:24] What exactly is Posturology and what does it have to do with our feet?

[14:39] Eye muscles are an important part of posture. Hand, eye coordination can be stunted by the white light from screens and the proximity of electronic devices.

[20:18] How has Paul’s nutritional philosophy changed over the years due to changes in scientific information?

[28:44] What is the difference in the proper diet of a high-end athlete vs. the average Joe?

[35:08] We should wait for our bodies to tell us when we need food before eating. Most people eat before their bodies have finished processing food.

[38:09] A good supplement activates our body's natural energy system.

[40:59] Bone broth is made from organic bones and it is eaten to reduce inflammation.

[43:53] Protein powders and supplements are overused, wasteful products.
