Sara Haley is a mom of two little dudes and personal trainer with a specialized focus on the postpartum core. She helps mom heal Diastasis Recti and pelvic floor dysfunction. She is on a mission to get more moms talking about these very normal conditions. She is also a ton of fun – which makes it really easy to talk to her about postpartum peeing and such.
Warning: Sara and I talk (and laugh) about all things peeing and vagina related on this episode. You’ll find it very informative. You’re welcome.

My home workouts are a KEY part of my day, 5 days a week. The convenience of home workouts make them a total no brainer for me. It’s easy to over think and over complicate home workouts. I want to help you with that! No need to spend a ton of money. No need to spend oodles of time sweating alone in your basement. Home workouts can be super efficient and effective, done in 10-30 minutes, 3-5 days a week!

Today I am talking with Dr. Jennifer Freed, a child psychologist and the co-founder of AHA! (Attitude.Harmony.Achievement.), a youth-focused non-profit that works to end bullying, improve self-esteem, and empower teens through emotional learning and creative expression.
AHA! was founded in response to the Columbine tragedy and here I am recording this interview 2 days after the Orlando massacre. I think you’ll agree the work of Jennifer and her organization has never been more imperative.
When I scheduled this interview it was intended to be about bullying – which Jennifer and I discuss in depth. But, we also talk through some things you can do to work through the Orlando tragedy. This is a deeply sad time for many people and I wanted to use Jennifer as a resource for those of you who may be struggling in processing the Orlando event.

I think many of us are struggling to recover from the trauma of the Orlando Massacre. I took all of last week to think about how I could address this on the podcast. This episode is what came out of my week of reflection.
I want to be more shameless. I mean, it’s the only way I can really own The Shameless Mom Academy, right? So, here I am – more shameless than I have been on any other episode.
I want you to know I stand for:
I hope you do too.
I also want you to know I have zero time or patience for:
We’re all in this together, yet we stand so divided. If we treated other people the way we want our children to be treated everything would be so different.
If you’re a lover of a good To Do List, but not great at accomplishing the big items on your list, you NEED a little lesson in GSD.
Remember, every time you say yes to one thing, you are saying no to many other things.
In this episode, you’ll learn how to:
Ok, don’t hate….
Y’all know I love my wine. Love.
And I know I’m not alone. You love it too, right??
We’re in this together.
I recently had a long wine/weight loss convo with my gym members here in Seattle and I thought it would be worthwhile to share the conversation with you. So, here goes…
Today you’ll learn:
I will also give you 6 tips to drinking smarter! Don’t worry I’m not going to ask you to give up your precious nectar. Like I said, we’re in this together.

I asked Halley Bock to join me for an interview after reading her article on Passion vs Purpose recently. I didn’t know she was such well rounded badass who has owned her space for quite some time – as in owning her company, owning her path to motherhood, owning her relationship with herself, and owning her upcoming book.
Halley is a leader in every way – with a mission to lead more people into revering their relationship with themselves.
Halley is also a mom to two kids - and she and her wife both got to experience the joy (and hell) of pregnancy and childbirth. I was particularly excited to ask her about the role of Family Manager, which often falls upon the mom. When there are two moms, who gets that role?

Today I’m going to get you all caught up my current life craziness, which mostly entails the #damndog’s diarrhea and more IVF “fact finding”. From there we’ll dive into meditation.
I fully admit to being a sucky meditator, but I think it’s important and potentially critical at this time in my life, so I’m determined to stick with it.
Today, I’ll share with you:
If you haven’t already listened to Episode 27, 10 Ways to Slay, go listen to that first. THEN, hop back here to learn how to Be A Quitter.
I want to lead a quitting revolution. Can we all quit the things we hate to create more space for the things we love? The world would be such a better place. I mean, no laundry would ever get done, but who cares?!
I get super annoyed when I hear “inspirational” quotes about not quitting – like these:
“Pain is temporary, quitting lasts forever.”
“Failure only happens when you give up trying, so never quit.”
“Quitting is not an option.”
I call BS.
There is a time and a place for quitting. And you probably often ignore the signs you should quit something because you have been trained to persevere and be a maryr. Enough of that crap, already.
Please Be A Quitter when something or someone:
Be A Quitter because:
Listen in to get my 3 steps to practice in your journey to becoming a better Quitter.
And remember, if it’s not a HELL YES, it’s a HELL NO.
