EP. 32 Building GRIT with Neeta Bhushan
42:30

She lost several members of her family by the age of nineteen. Afterward, she found herself in an abusive marriage and a career that left her unfulfilled. Neeta Bhushan joins us today to share her story of navigating through grief, taking huge chances, and using humor as a means to emotional grit.

 

Neeta left her million dollar dentistry practice in order to study and teach others about the topic of emotional grit. After enduring great tragedies Netta says that she covered her emotions through pursuing success and achievement only to find herself empty. After traveling the world and exploring different cultures she now has a passion for helping others tap into their emotions and truly heal. She explains that the journey can be fun and encourages us that it is definitely worth it.

EP. 28 Mindset: What to Eat Before & After Workouts/ModiRE
20:22

It’s one of fitness’ greatest mysteries. Should you, or should you not, eat before and after a workout? We are told a multitude of different approaches ranging from loading up on carbs to complete fasting before and after your time at the gym. Which one is right? Who should you listen to?

I don’t know about you but I personally feel more hungry at certain parts of the day.  When you are trying to fuel your body but also eat clean it can be confusing to know when and how much to eat.  In this episode, I share my personal routine and what the latest research says about the topic.

We want to hear from YOU! When are you most hungry in the day? Are there things that trigger when you have to eat? We would love to know! Connect with us and let us know using the links below or email us at hello@wearewannabe.com.

EP. 27 Boob Reductions (Andrea) / Sweat Friends
17:29

We think about it all the time but often feel uncomfortable talking about it. We wonder are they too big? Are they too small? Are they too saggy? What am I talking about? Boobs. This week on our special series, Sweat Friends Work It Out, my friend Andrea joins us to discuss her own journey from an increase to reduction.

Your boobs may not be where you want them to be.  Especially after having children, we often see a big change in our size or shape. Through these natural changes that our bodies go through we sometimes want to see a little more lift or little less sag. Join us today as we talk big boobs, little boobs, saggy boobs, and boob reductions.

EP. 25 Why You Should Add Weights AND Keep Cardio/ModiRE
20:56

I get asked two questions all the time from women. One is, "How do I become comfortable in the weight room?" The second is, "If I do lift, will I become bulky? " This is a heavily debated topic among women and it's time that we talk about it.

Should you add weights? Should you add more cardio? How will your physique change by incorporating one or both of them?

In this episode, I debunk some of the biggest misconceptions about the weight room, openly share some of my own insecurities, and even talk about the thing that some personal trainers tell you to do that is flat out wrong.
