3183

Shame. Guilt. Secretive thoughts. As women, many of us have insecurities and are lacking freedom in regards to food and body-image. With only 10% of those with an eating disorder actually getting help for their issues, research shows that there are many people who struggle for years and decades with intrusive thoughts and destructive habits. It can be a fine line between being healthy and having it take over your life, mind and time and Melainie Rogers speaks to all of this in her role as an eating disorder specialist.

3012

We've been excited for this episode to launch ever since we recorded. THIS will be one that both you and your partner can listen to and find so much goodness in.

Colby joins the podcast to share her parenting and relationship wisdom. She had us nodding our heads throughout the entire episode. Colby and her wife Val have 3 little people including twins that are just over one. They know busy, but they continue to stay connected and thrive through it.

We go into the details of her book "Tips & Truths For Dudes: 32 Ways To Win At Husbanding & Be The Best New Dad Ever (According To A Lesbian Mom)" and dive deep into the first steps to help men build confidence and women release the resentment that can be built in marriage and parenting.

Her ability to help men and women reframe their thoughts around the same situation is remarkable and we promise you're going to want to give this one a listen.

2582

Friendships. Are. Necessary. Period. But when schedules are tight, they are many times the first to go. If you are a listener in your 30’s, this is an especially trying season with keeping and making relationships that hold true value. This also goes for releasing the guilt associated with knowing some friendships have run their course and don’t need pressure to maintain.  


Know that if you are struggling with any part of this, you are not alone. Today we bring in our own experience as well as what the research says on a topic that is crucial to every woman out there.

29. Making Self Care a Priority
2035

Sure, self care can look like a week-long vacation and a full day at the spa. But this is not a frequent reality for most of us with tight schedules and multiple titles. In today’s episode, we go back to the basics on the simple things we need to make a priority in life. We also go into details on how we fit in the pieces that are crucial to living our best lives and what are the non-negotiables.

Ladies, this is a big reminder to fulfill your needs FIRST even with the demands of work, family, and the world pulling you away.

2013

This week we open up about the changes occurring in our world and the knowledge gained on systemic racism. We give our stance and what the future holds for our business and personal lives in regards to inclusion and action, both on and off camera. 

We also dive into a full discussion on the influencer world and where as consumers, we need to take control into our own hands. Where many of us fall prey to idolizing and holding the lives of those in the spotlight on a pedestal, just know there is always a story that doesn’t make the highlight reel.

Many times, we walk through life with a plan to meet the love of our life, get married, buy a home, have babies. But very few of us imagine an affair and divorce as a piece of our puzzle. Elena speaks openly about her experience and also where she found confidence and a new beginning after the ashes. Her story on heartbreak, grace, understanding, and triumph brought on all the emotions and a new take on relationships that we have not yet had on HERself.

As women, many of us are walking through life with a heavy load on our shoulders. Feelings of having too much on our plate and not enough time to complete everything.

2007

Anyone else feeling the weight of COVID-19 on their relationship? We brought Dr. Tracy back on the podcast to dive into the topics and questions you had in regards to relationship struggles in uncertainty. 

  • How can you keep your bond strong in hardship?
  • Communications strategies when life is tense

Every storm will run out of rain but when the end is unknown, using strategies to prevent relationship stress are more important to implement now than ever before.

2194

Tracy joins the podcast today. She is answering questions about individual stress, anxiety, and emotions as we all wade through the coronavirus epidemic. She walks through several positive strategies we can use to get out of our mind and into the present moment as much of our stress is anticipatory. With 40,000-50,000 thoughts a day, it is no wonder that we can feel overwhelmed. She teaches us strategies on how to bring self-compassion and awareness into our lives to help us. She also speaks to people that are in really tough situations: those that are pregnant, about to deliver a baby, and those that are on the front lines. 


We hope that you find this episode as helpful as we both did. It felt like an enormous hug, exactly when we needed it the most.

1975

We made a pivot this week. This episode won’t be on severity stats or the latest closure, but will be on how we are doing and coping with the news in the world today. It’s a tricky time for all of us and we hope our vulnerability and honesty about the struggle and pain helps you not feel so alone. As always, we will also leave our listeners with what is working and the tangible ideas you can implement today to propel you, your family, and the community forward. We even have a special guest entrance just after the 27:30 mark. This is the new reality for so many of us.

At the end of the episode and for the first time ever, we are sharing a preview of our next month of content and the guests we will be having on the podcast to help us all get through this extremely challenging time. We will get through this together.

“I have to stop forcing the old, and building the new.” How many times have you battled to keep our old life to end the day exhausted and unsuccessful? Sometimes we have to jump on a new train if we are heading the wrong direction, as difficult as that may be! 


Amy joins the podcast to tell her journey through the trenches that the role of a mom and step mom can take. Her truth is inspiring and allowed us to put ourselves in another woman’s shoes. The grit she has built through pivots in her career, the tests of postpartum depression and anxiety, struggles with blending families and her love of the Lord shine bright in today’s episode and throughout her life.

2511

Mom guilt comes in all shapes and sizes, but one thing we can all agree on is that none of us are immune to its stresses. The pressure we put on ourselves as moms is HEAVY. But, how can we start to question mom guilt, wrestle it, and overcome it?


Tears were shed during this episode as we dug deep into own mom guilt and talked about how we’ve faced it over the last 4 years. We’re RIGHT there with you if it is something you still face- as you’ll hear, we still face it too.

10. HERself Expert: Molly Millwood on Motherhood, Marriage, and the Modern Dilemma
4397
Molly Millwood joins the podcast today as our first author in our first ever book club. If you have read her incredible book To Have and To Hold: Motherhood, Marriage, and the Modern Dilemma...you know how powerful her message is. We both consider this a must read book for every new mama as we found it to be a life changing book. It is both freeing and validating for women in the throes of one of life’s biggest transitions: motherhood.

Special takeaways: 
  • Resentment for our partners are generally formed around unrealistic expectations 
  • The goal of being a “good enough” mother
  • The inequities between men and women when it comes to parenting are real
  • Giving voice around fear, depletion, longing and hunger will win over passive aggressive communication every time
  • A man’s ability to accept influence from their partner is directly related to marital stability
  • Seeking professional therapy should be normalized and we could all benefit from it

Our husbands are back on this week’s episode and we go through some of our hardest challenges and conversations that we’ve experienced in our relationships to date. Skeletons come out of the closet and seasons of contention are brought to the forefront, this was not an easy episode to record. But, we think it’s important because we know others might be in their hard season right now. You are not alone. We’re hoping you might be able to pull a tip or two to help propel your relationship forward. Thanks to our guys for coming on and providing the male perspective again.

8. Relationships: They Are WORK
1841

Relationships take work. Period. And good relationships are worth putting the time and energy into. Progress over perfection is key to creating a relationship that two unique people can both enjoy but we all know that some advice is better than others. We give our honest thoughts on some of the common advice we have all heard and share what we’ve really found helpful.


Abby’s Takeaways

  1. Just because he does it differently, doesn’t make it wrong
  2. His opinions matter too


Amy’s Takeaways

  1. Learn how to argue
  2. Realize that you’re different people and lean into it


We will have our husbands back on next week to dig into these further and also give their take on growing in a relationship.

7. Motherhood: What We Wish We Would’ve Known + An {EXTRA} Special Announcement
2893

As first time moms, we both struggled. BIG issues for us were the preconceived notions of what it was supposed to look like and comparing everything from how our body looked to how we nurtured our kids. Our culture looks at motherhood with rose colored glasses and idealizes the experience. Only when we’re willing to open up and get honest, can we support each other by affirming that some of motherhood is just REALLY hard. This is what the episode is made to do. 


Asking for help, self-care, and keeping your adult relationships front of mind are all ways to help in these isolating times. Some situations may need the care of a professional and we want to NORMALIZE that. We hope the words and experiences are supportive and validating for you in whatever motherhood season you’re in.

6. HERstory: Kate Lemere - Chicago Fitness Expert
3612

“The only thing to do is move forward, that’s it, it really is that simple”. In this guest interview with Kate Lemere, we cover everything from fitness and nutrition to vaginal healing and baby blues. Kate’s take on common terms like “letting yourself go” and the question of “am I the only one going through this” is not only inspiring but extremely validating for women in every walk of life. Her message is clear, remove the urgency, the expectations, the extremes and we can tackle any goal that serves us. In a month where we many times turn to quick fixes and detoxes, simple habits and daily choices will win in the long run every time.

5. The Comparison Game: We All Can Win
2151

Teddy Roosevelt said it best: “comparison is the thief of joy”. We can instantly go from feeling great about our life to feeling mediocre if we start comparing. Often nothing has actually changed about your situation, you just went out and found that someone else’s Instagram life looks better. Comparison can lead to lust and envy and doesn’t lead to the contentment and gratefulness we’re seeking. 


There will always be shinier rings, bigger houses, clearer skin, and unique skills that other people are showcasing. But don’t think that she also doesn’t struggle. We all have the ability to filter and we all have the behind the scenes mess even if all we are showing is our center stage.


So, let’s grow together. We open up about where we struggle with comparison and what has helped us along the way.

1631

Body image. It sure is a  j o u r n e y! Research shows that issues surrounding how a person views their body can go back to as early as age 4 and our parents and household can make a BIG impact. Most of us will struggle with our body confidence at one time or another, but there are ways to get to a more confident place. 


This week we dig in to where Abby still struggles from her former, fuller figure and how Amy has overcome many of the common habits and thoughts that seep into a person’s mind. Listen in, we’re sure you’ll be able to relate to one or both of us.

These two tell all on dividing household tasks, entering parenthood, and that 3-letter-bad-word we refer to as “nag” and how to ditch it for good.


It was really important to us that our first guests would be our husbands, because they are a big part of our story. Drew and Colin have been in each of our lives for about a decade and have seen us through some of the best and worst of times. They will be frequent guests on the HERself Podcast so head on over to our Instagram link below and let us know what else you want to hear!

Welcome to the HERself Podcast! Amy and Abby here and we are SO glad you have joined. 


In episode 1, we dive into a series of questions. Our responses will help you get to know us on a deeper level and also articulate just how open and honest these episodes will be. What is your greatest body insecurity? What debt do you have? What makes you feel sexy? Jot down your answers as we open up the real conversations that will help you get one step ahead of where you are now.
