Most Popular Podcasts and Blogs of 2017
Honorable mention of the most popular podcasts and blogs of 2017 goes to an episode posted in 2016 with the most downloads in 2017:
I ‘ve been coaching the mindset since 1989 when I began grad school for Exercise Psychology. I went through a two-year deep dive to enhance my coaching skills for mindset success in 2000. Change requires far more than the right information or knowing there’s a gap between where you are and want to go. The popularity of this year end blog suggests you know that too. I’m thrilled. It means that change is available to you at any moment.
This episode about chronic fatigue is full of small action steps you can take to feel better. Chronic fatigue and adrenal stress are realities for too many women over 50. They don’t have to be.
Weight train to lose weight! It’s a slower road to changing the scale, but your pants will become baggy and you’ll change your body in a way no other exercise has the power to do. If you need some motivation to both lift you up and get you lifting, this is your listen.
No question that internally and externally our lives are changing during midlife. How do you take it in without stress getting the best of you? This one clearly struck a cord with listeners.
Protein is an evergreen topic around here. Food gets emotional fast and I’ll be the first to admit that poor information coming to women over 50 (and women who want to flip 50 feeling and looking great!) gets me a little crazy. This is one of the single easiest things you can do to avoid muscle loss (sarcopenia) that IS a part of aging if you aren’t lifting weights and recovering with adequate protein (it takes both, plus rest, it’s not a choice between one or the other).
In this episode I launched my announcement that I was going to begin training for an Ironman distance triathlon. I described the pre-testing and post-testing I would do along with the reduced volume training schedule I’d planned for myself. It was indeed a ride! (and a swim and run!) You’ll want to listen to the “after” episode coming as soon as results are back from labs I’ll be sharing!
I loved this episode with Vicki Hunter from Boulder. Ultramarathon distance runner, and water exercise expert, she’s far more than that. She had a miraculous recovery from an accident you’d never guess from looking at her. She shared far more than exercise information with me as a part of the summer inspiration series.
Dr. Stuart McGill has been a favorite expert of mine since 1989 when I was thrown from a horse onto a pile of wood. I spent a summer rehabbing and researching. For the last 25+ years I’ve referenced him, quoted him, and continue to study his work and research. This uplifting discussion with the world-renowned back pain specialist is one of my favorite.
In this episode, I return to mindset. It really has to start there and it never ends. Your mindset shift can change everything.
This episode is like a checklist to see if your moving toward long-term success and maintenance or setting yourself up for a fall. Some of the things we learned early in our adult life about exercise won’t continue to serve you into the second 50. As the saying goes, what got you here won’t get you there. True whether you’re experiencing success or not.
- Losing 5-lbs vs. 50-lbs After 50: The Difference… the runaway winner with 33% more listeners than any other episode in 2017!
This is the run-away winner with 33% more listeners than any other episode in 2017! This describes in part the difference between Flipping 50’s 28-Day Kickstart and the Fit-U program and why there is such a distinction.
