How to Plan Your Healthy Lifestyle With Ease [2 Easy Steps]

Lifestyle is the path you carve from the choices you make.  Planning your lifestyle is the first step towards success. Everyone is guilty of making excuses for their behavior like, ‘It’s the weekend so I can take it easy,’ or ‘I just don’t have it in me during the colder seasons to exercise like I do in the summer.’  But you will become your truest self (the version of yourself that works the hardest and smartest) when you plan and follow through even when it’s the weekend, the holidays, or when people around you are pressuring you to give in.  You will get to know yourself and discover that you like the person you are becoming. It’s difficult to know where to start in making changes to an already worn path, so here are the simple steps for a successfully planned change in lifestyle. Step 1: Hold A Weekly Planning...

Episode #185: Navigating Your Inner Dialogue

When you’re working to improve your body’s aesthetics and/or health, it can be very frustrating when things are not going according to plan. Maybe that is in your choices and lack of follow-through, or maybe that is due to unforeseen events in your life. No matter what is getting you off track it is important to find solutions (and quickly) so you can beat the debilitating momentum that comes from one more day, and one more day, and one more day of begin off track. However, within the midst of those efforts, the quality of your inner dialogue is critical. The more you work on improving your thoughts, the better you will become at managing your emotions. After all, emotions ride on the tailcoats of thoughts. In this episode of the Body Buddies podcast, Kristy Jo will help you learn through her own authentic and vulnerable sharing of life as...

Tiers of the Power Foods Lifestyle | Ditch the All-Or-Nothing Thinking!

Do you have all-or-nothing thinking when it comes to Dieting and Nutrition? Are you guilty of jumping on the latest bandwagon for nutrition and dieting, done well for a time, then felt completely disappointed in yourself as life happened and you weren’t able to finish strong? If so, you’re not alone. A recent study found that only 20% of people who start a diet make it to the one week mark, and of those people, only 20% make it to the 3-month mark. Is there any wonder there is SUCH a big business for diets, nutritional dogmas, weight loss products, and supplements? I cringe and shake my head as I observe what’s happening in our society. Simultaneously, my heart fills with gratitude that I was able to exit the pool of frustration I personally was swimming in, and “dry off.” Now, I’m being the “lifeguard” trying to pull YOU out...

Where Does Spirituality Fit In Your Health Improvement?

Have you ever wondered how to deepen your purpose, and the meaning behind caring for your body with proper nutrition and fitness? Have you ever felt there was a part of you that was missing? Have you wondered how you can find more enjoyment in everything you do? If so, you’re not alone. Feelings of emptiness, lack of motivation, and overall ‘blah’ seem to be a constant companion to so many who I am blessed to interact with at Body Buddies. In this blog post, I would like to consider together the benefits of bringing more spirituality into everything we do–from nutrition and fitness to our every day work and hobbies. I believe that a careful analysis of your life and the effort to incorporate my challenge at the end of this post will be the first domino in a chain reaction of positive events in your life. I can...

30 Podcasts in 30 Days Challenge

If you’re feeling overwhelmed when making your lifestyle change with the Power Foods Lifestyle and Body Buddies, I need you take my 30 Podcasts in 30 days Challenge. If you want to learn a new language, you must immerse yourself in the culture and people who speak it. “The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.” -Ludwig Wittgenstein I’ll never forget the feelings of complete shock when I first walked the streets of Seoul, Korea as a brand new church missionary  in 2008. It was monsoon season and  the air was heavy and thick. The hum of beetles in the trees pierced my ears and made my head spin, but not nearly as much as hearing the people of South Korea speak as they passed me on the crowded streets. I was overwhelmed. I couldn’t understand a lick of what they were saying. This was nothing like...

How to Improve Your Personal Accountability in a Lifestyle Change

If you have ever struggled with accountability to nutrition changes, a fitness challenge, or simple health improvements, it’s time to learn a more efficient system that will help you reach (and sustain!) your health goals. I’ll never forget the day it donned on me that my Body Buddies needed to learn the system I used to make my own lifestyle changes. I was at my parents’ home in Santa Clara, Utah for a holiday weekend. Most of our festivities had come to an end and, as usual, my mind was on all of the people I am so blessed to interact with online. The thought seemed to enlarge in my mind until I could not wait another moment. I excused myself from the family activities, went into the basement, and stayed up the remainder of the evening working on this new 8-week Accountability workbook. This book, simple in design, but...

How to Recover From Stress & Emotional Sabotage

If you have ever thought, ‘I feel like I’m wasting my time,’ ‘All this work is pointless,’ or even ‘I am so sick and tired of my self-sabotage,’ this message is for you. The other day I was reflecting on these thoughts that inevitably come our way when we are trying to improve our nutrition, fitness, and body goals. Self-sabotage comes easily, and we feel guilt, shame, and frustration around not meeting our own expectations. I CONFESS: I used to be SO DANG HARD on myself whenever I’d break from my goals, eat the cookie (or whole bag, haha), and lay in bed miserable with a tummy ache, gas, and shame. What was wrong with me? Why couldn’t I follow through? Was I broken? Maybe you’re no different than I used to be? The fact is: It’s very, very, very difficult to be ‘perfect’ even when you know better. That’s...

The Top 10 Mindset Podcast Episodes from Body Buddies

What does it take to get motivated and build a strong mindset? I think it comes down to hearing new ideas and perspectives that help you dislodge the apathy or lies you tell yourself. You see, your brain tries to protect you. It comes up with stories that you attach emotion to, and those stories and emotions frame the foundation for your behavior. Here is an example: Let’s say you are struggling to follow through and eat your healthy meals each day, or avoid the desserts altogether. What could possibly be stopping you from following through when you say you want to do better? Though the possibilities of solutions here are endless, I have found with many of my clients that they have created a story in their mind that it is vain, or putting too much focus on themselves and the look of their body to eat healthily. The emotion rides...
