False Comfort VS. True Joy

SHOW NOTES: Episode 22

Where do you turn when you need to find true joy?

Today I wanted to share with you an article that I had the privilege of writing for the Coaches Wives Ministry about false comfort vs. true joy. 

I talk about being a creature of habit and turning to things to help us find comfort. I share with you how we aren’t meant to do this alone. God is such an important part of our journey when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight. We often still turn to food for comfort rather than Him. That only leaves us satisfied for a moment. Long term satisfaction and true joy are only found in Jesus. Let’s turn to Him. If we commit to turning to God, the bread of life, rather than food, we will find true peace and true joy

“I hate cooking”

SHOW NOTES: Episode 21

Do you hate cooking?

Does the thought of cooking make you feel like you won’t ever be able to lose weight or eat healthy? 

Well friend, Amanda Kaldor and I are chatting more about this today. First and foremost, let me say: You don’t have to like cooking. Sometimes we have to do hard things in order to get the results we want. It’s so important to take care of our bodies and cooking healthy meals is part of that.

This doesn’t have to be hard though! Amanda and I chat about how you can buy pre-cooked chicken, pre-washed and cut veggies, frozen veggies. You can find so many recipes on Pinterest that are one pan or sheet pan meals. Eating healthy and cooking healthy doesn’t mean we have to spend hours in the kitchen. Don’t make this harder on yourself. Be intentional with your time and find an easy and simple solution that will set you up for success.

Why Meal Plans Don’t Work

SHOW NOTES: Episode 19

I hear it all of the time, “Can you just write me a meal plan?”

It makes sense but I’m going to explain to you on this episode why meal plans actually don’t work and why I don’t write meal plans for you when we start working together. 

1. Changing your habits can take time. 

Remember your eating habits have been formed over several years so changing those habits will take some time. Meals don’t work because there are way too many habit changes happening all at once. As I tell my clients, baby step your way to greatness. Don’t set yourself up for failure by completely changing everything in one day. Make small changes as you go. 

2. Meal plans don’t allow for special circumstances or substitutions.

Meal plans teach you to eat one way and to follow that way perfectly. Imagine you had a vacation planned or a work trip planned…it would actually cause you stress to not be able to eat exactly as you had planned on that trip which could cause you to feeling like you failed. 

Meal plans also don’t teach you that there are hundreds of substitutions for certain foods. What if you get tired of eating the same thing every day? What if that food isn’t in season or isn’t available but it’s on your meal plan? You may feel like giving up. Working with a coach who teaches you nutrition will help you to actually enjoy eating and you won’t feel like you are held captive by a piece of paper that tells you exactly what to do. If you follow that piece of paper, you will never learn to make choices about the food you are eating and actually listen to what you body is telling you.

3. Meal plans are NOT budget friendly.

If your meal plan called for a salad one night but not the rest of the week, your produce will go bad before you can eat it again. That is money wasted. I teach my clients how to use the same ingredients in different ways so there is little to no waste.

Don’t fall into a vicious cycle of meal planning. You know what I’m talking about. You go off of your plan one night and then end up ordering pizza and say you’ll start again another day. You feel frustrated and want to give up.

So what can you do instead?

When you hire me as your coach, I work with you to create a plan that works best for you. It’s customizable and it can be changed as we go. You will have the knowledge you need to make food decisions on your own after working with me. You no longer have to have someone tell you what you can and can’t eat. You know what works for you and your body and how to feed yourself.

If this sounds like what you are looking for, go to www.rachelking.org/coaching and watch my program video and fill out the application to work with me. We’ll then have a conversation to see if we are a good fit and I’ll explain to you how I can help.

Remember above all else, reach out to God first and foremost and He will give you the tools and armor that you need to overcome anything and come out successful on the other side – even with food and weight loss!

Protecting our Self-Esteem and Stress Level with Bryce Batts

SHOW NOTES: Episode 18

On today’s episode, I have Bryce Batts here talking more about self-esteem and stress. Bryce is a certified career coach with 13 years as a recruiter in the AEC industry and she is here sharing so much valuable information with us.

Bryce shares her background of playing sports and how that can sometimes be damaging to your self-esteem. She shares how weigh-ins for sports can truly be something you carry with you later. We talk about how the scale is just one tool that we use and how it does not define your worth. Bryce shares how she is changing the narrative with her two children and helping them to understand that weight is not everything. 

We also chat about reducing stress levels and how moving our bodies helps reduce those stress levels. Some other things that help with stress are: setting the tone for day with a good morning routine, getting outside, finding what works for you to be intentional with moving your body, or listening to music or a podcast.

Navigating Postpartum Depression with Haili Murch

SHOW NOTES: Episode 16

On today’s episode, I am chatting with Haili Murch, my podcast manager. We are diving into postpartum depression and anxiety. I think it’s such an important topic to talk about to raise awareness about because I feel like there aren’t enough conversations about it. First and foremost, make sure that you reach out to a medical professional for help if you are experiencing this. It’s okay to talk about it and it’s okay to get help.

Haili shares about her experience, the stigma that surrounds depression and anxiety especially for Christian women, and she shares her top tips for someone that’s currently in this season of life. We chat about misconceptions around postpartum depression and anxiety and the importance of seeking help.

This was a great conversation with Haili on a topic that is so important to talk about. I’d love to know what you thought of today’s episode on Instagram: @rachelmeigsking

Weight Loss Isn’t Just About You (Part 3)

SHOW NOTES: Episode 15

This is part 3 of the series that Amanda Kaldor and I are doing on “Weight Loss isn’t just about you”. If you haven’t listened to part 1 or part 2, go back and check them out.

In this third and final episode of this series, we are talking about marriage.

So, your weight loss isn’t just about you. It also affects your marriage.

You have to take care of yourself and really truly love yourself before you can let anyone else in. When we aren’t taking care of ourselves or feeling good about the skin that we’re in, we may start to even feel like we aren’t worthy of love. Taking care of yourself and finding your identity in Christ first and foremost is so important. If you are showing your self love, it is much easier then to show your husband love.

A key takeaway from this episode was that it all starts with you. Taking care of yourself starts with you. It makes your relationships better and your marriage better. It impacts so many areas of our lives but it starts with you.

We dive deep into marriage in this episode. This is one you are going to want to hear!

Weight Loss Isn’t Just About You (Part 2)

SHOW NOTES: Episode 14

This is part 2 of the series that Amanda Kaldor and I are doing on “Weight Loss isn’t just about you”. If you haven’t listened to part 1, go back and check it out HERE.

On today’s episode we are chatting more about how weight loss impact so much more than just us – it impacts your brothers and sisters in Christ. Taking care of ourselves is so much more important that you realize. By taking care of yourself, it allows you to go out and live and fulfill your greater purpose. We talk about the emphasis of the people that you are surrounding yourself with, rather than the food at church gatherings or other fellowship activities. Amanda and I also chat more bout not people pleasing when it comes to eating. Making sure that you are intentional about what you are eating.

We also chat about how a lot of people don’t put the connection together with weight loss and faith and incorporating God into the mix. That is something that is so foundational with them message that we are sharing and how important it is to fulfill our greater purpose that God put us on the earth to do and we can’t do that if we aren’t taking care of ourselves.

Weight Loss Isn’t Just About You (Part 1)

SHOW NOTES: Episode 13

Over the next few episodes, my good friend Amanda Kaldor and I are going to be chatting about how weight loss is not just about you. This is going to be part 1 of that today. In part 1 of this episode, we’re going to dive into one of the most impactful ways that weight loss isn’t just about you, it affects your children as well.

So, weight loss isn’t just about you. That isn’t meant to be a judgment either. It is meant to be a motivation. Weight loss affects so many things – including our children. 

When we are in that diet culture mentality and constantly stepping on the scale and saying that we need to lose weight, our kids see that. So instead of using negative verbiage, we have the opportunity to turn that around now and use empowering verbiage with our kids. We need to be careful in the words we use with our kids so that they grow up to talk positive about their bodies and the foods they eat.

Reframing the way we think about things and talk about things is so important. When our kids see us exercise, we explain to them that it makes us feel better. We say things like we love our bodies and that’s why I’m doing this. It’s never tied to weight loss. I’m building strength or I want feel really good for the day.

If you are not teaching your kids about healthy habits, and you are not talking to them about having a good relationship with food, you’re being selfish. It’s not just about you. It is about setting them up for success. It’s so important to teach them about these healthy habits. It’s important to pour into yourself, learn as much as you can about becoming healthy and fueling your body properly and treating its as the temple that it was designed to be. Then pass that on to your kids.

Your body is a temple and we should treat it that way so we can go out and fulfill our greater purpose. Instilling this into your kids allows them to go fulfill their greater purpose too. 

If you’re a mom, one of your purposes is to lead your children and be an example for your children. I want to reiterate this is not meant to put judgement on ourselves as mothers. Let’s not judge ourselves or beat ourselves up. Let’s use it as fuel and change.

MORE ABOUT FEED YOURSELF: HEALTHY HABITS FOR THE MIND, BODY, & SOUL PODCAST:

Feed Yourself: Healthy Habits for the Mind, Body, & Soul is all about learning the key components of overall health based on Biblical principles. When most people think about getting in shape and becoming “healthy”, they immediately think about their physical health: losing weight, making exercise a priority, possessing flexibility and endurance, and remaining disease free. But Scripture makes it clear that physical wellness is not the only area that impacts health. In order to be TRULY healthy, we have to focus on four areas: spiritual health, emotional health, mental health, and physical health. 

This podcast dives deep into the tools and head knowledge you will need in order to create lasting results, but it also looks at the element that truly ties it all together – the heart knowledge that incorporates faith in God in this area of our lives and how to apply it when things get tough (and they will!).

I wanted to create a space to let you know you are never alone on this journey. Through years of experience in doing everything the WRONG way, I am here to share my journey of getting healthy from the inside out – ditching the restriction and diet culture and truly learning to treat my body as the temple God intended it to be. 

Grab a cup of coffee and join me as I discuss healthy habits to incorporate in your daily life to propel you forward and FEED YOURSELF on your journey to health in all areas: mind, body, and soul!
