I had a funny situation recently where I pushed some limits that I would have never pushed 10 years ago – back when I was a little more controlling and a little more anal….
It has taken the last 15 years as an entrepreneur + 5 years of motherhood + a few years of infertility for me to realize that, as Marie Forleo says, “Everything is figuroutable.”
Today, when my back is against the wall, I know I am never without options. I can create my own outcomes. Damn, that feels good.
I don’t need to control it all, because I can figure it out as I go and I can create options as I need them. Sometimes, I can even break the rules. Whooooop!!
Listen in to hear the recent story that made me realize how far I’ve come with this – and you just might fund some nuggets that inspire you to push some boundaries, break some rules and create your own outcomes.

I’ll let you know up front that I was uncomfortable and nervous about recording and releasing this episode. I wasn’t sure where to start and I was worried I wouldn’t know how to finish. But I know I know that silence is not an option. Because we have seen over and over again that silence is death. And I won’t be an accomplice.
I hope that you will listen in and learn today. I hope you’ll find something meaningful and valuable. I put together this episode so you could hear my experiences over the last week and perhaps glean something new and impactful from what I’ve learned as I’ve been researching.
Many of us don’t know how to take action that will be meaningful. I believe that learning is one of the first and most powerful ways you can START. Please START and encourage others in your life to do the same.
If this episode was meaningful and valuable to you, please share it with others. Here is the link to share: http://shamelessmom.com/episode/silence-is-not-an-option

Dana Skoglund is a certified yoga health coach, yoga teacher and mother of 2 rambunctious young boys. She has been studying yoga since 2000, and teaching since 2004. Eventually her desire to take her health and wellbeing into her own hands and to learn how to keep her family healthy led her to Ayurveda in 2011.
After implementing the daily routine of Ayurveda and noticing the profound impact it had on her energy and happiness, Dana began coaching clients into these better body habits in 2013. Dana aims to inspire others about the importance of healthy habits in crafting the life of their dreams. She is deeply passionate about travel, adventure, learning, movement of any kind and the arts.
This was a fascinating conversation, where I learned so much about myself. I know you’ll learn a lot from Dana, too. Dana shares a ton about Ayurveda, which is so enlightening (and will make you eager to implement simple new habits!) This episode is packed with helpful tips and powerful insights. Take notes!

This episode is the sister episode to Stop Saying Sorry (Episode 149). So, if you haven’t listened to that episode yet, go back and do so now!
Now that you’re done apologizing for everything all day everyday – let’s do some fun stuff. Moving forward, I’m giving you permission to be a quitter, to be imperfect, to live bigger and bolder, to try something scary, to forgive and to be POWERFUL - starting today.
This episode is all about moving ON and moving UP. My hope is that if I give you permission today, you will give yourself permission tomorrow and everyday after that. Cause I happen to have it on good authority that you are a total badass and perhaps you’ve been selling yourself short lately…
Listen in to all 29 things I’m giving you permission to do – TODAY. Now.
Charmaine Ironside owns and operates two successful Fitness studios in Calgary, Canada with her husband Patrick. She also owns The Diet Dropout, a thriving online coaching business where she helps women overcome challenges with weight, food, and mindset on the road to living their best lives in their best bodies.
She enjoys all the hats she wears, including being a mom to 2-year-old daughter Kennedy, a wife to an incredible husband, and an entrepreneur who is constantly looking for ways to help people live better lives. Charmaine is an eternal optimist who lives life to the fullest, taking full responsibility for her own joy and success.
I always love a good convo with a fellow fitness professional. I was especially excited to hear Charmaine talk about her personal journey with dieting and weight loss. As it turns out, we are very similar – raised by awesome moms who also happened to be chronic dieters. We both started dieting at very young ages. That will mess with a little girl’s self-image for a lifetime…

I have something new for you this week and this month and every month moving forward – YAY!
It seems impossible that it’s already August, right? I mean, you might be elated because SCHOOL – it’s almost here again. But you might also be bummed – where did summer go and did we really do all. the. things???
I know I’m not ready for summer to be over. While Vinnie’s Summer Bucket List is nearly completed, I’ve barely begun mine (typical #momlife, right?!)
As I was mourning the rapidly approaching end of summer this morning, it occurred to me that every darn month is like this – the months come too fast and they go too fast. They all seem significant and pivotal for some reason, too. Like I don’t want any of them to escape until I’ve had my way with them. You with me???
So, my brilliant idea for the SMA…
I’m going to start a new tradition for our first episode of every month. The first Monday of every month will be the “3 Things to Think About in [New Month]” episode. This way, I can give you some pointers on setting intentions and goals for the month that are relevant to where we are in the course of the year. I think this will be SUPER DUPER helpful for you (and for me – whoop!)
Tune in to today’s episode to hear 3 Things to Think About in August. This will help you formulate a PLAN for the rest of summer, as well as give you some SUPPORT and GUIDANCE for the upcoming transition into a new school year. This is good stuff, mamas. Promise.

This interview was so fascination to me. Renee identifies herself as a Type A personality, just as I do. But you’ll notice that she is slow and careful with her words, the opposite of me. She has trained herself to slow down and live calmly, even in the midst of chaos. If you’re Type A, you will love this interview – especially everything Renee shares about the silent retreats she has attended (which sound terrifying to me!)
