What you need to know about pelvic floor health (and no it’s not just for those that are postpartum) with Caitlin Day (The Vagina Physio)
When you hear the words ‘pelvic floor dysfunction’ you probably think of women post-birth, working on getting their pelvic floor back to where it was before their little bub arrived. But if you think that’s as far as it goes, boooooooy are you missing the bigger picture! Pelvic floor dysfunction doesn’t just happen to women after birth and it’s never too early or late to start working on your pelvic floor health. Working on your pelvic floor could help you get relief from bowel issues, help with endometriosis symptoms, help those awkward moments when you pee a little bit by accident (if you know you know), reduce painful sex and so much more. Now I’m not a pelvic floor specialist, which is why I brought the wonderful Caitlin Day onto the podcast today to give us the DL on all things pelvic floor! Caitlin is a fellow kiwi and is just as passionate as I am about women’s health and is a highly skilled physiotherapist with a specialisation in pelvic floor physiotherapy - her other interests are sexual pain rehabilitation, post gynaecological surgery rehabilitation, helping women returning to sport after childbirth, chronic pain management such as endometriosis (which a lot of women with PCOS also have) and helping with bowel problems such as fecal incontinence or constipation. We talk all about what is actually classed as the pelvic floor, what can happen if you don't have a strong enough pelvic floor, what happens to your pelvic floor during pregnancy and postnatally, what you can actually do about it and a whoooole lot more. It's never too late to be working on your pelvic floor - whether you're trying to get pregnant, postpartum or just wanting to improve your health generally. This is the podcast you didn't know that you needed to hear - so pop in your headphones, go for a walk and listen to this awesome chat I had with Caitlin, I assure you you’ll learn a whole lot more than you’ve probably ever learned about the pelvic floor! *This episode is for you if:* * You’re pregnant * You have Endometriosis * You experience painful sex and/or periods * You are trying to conceive * You have insulin resistance * Weight gain is one of your symptoms * You’ve already given birth * You always need to pee or you feel like you get light bladder leakage often *Some things we cover in this episode:* * What actually is the pelvic floor? Why is it so important? * How weight can impact your pelvic floor * Pregnancy and postpartum - what to expect when it comes to your pelvic floor * Postpartum pelvic WOF * How the pelvic floor can be damaged (and what you can do about it) * Getting back into exercise after giving birth * Overactive bladder, PCOS and the pelvic floor * Insulin and the pelvic muscles *Resources and References:* * Caitlin’s Instagram (@thevaginaphysio) * Caitlin’s practice (Unity Studios) * Unity Studios Instagram * My Book: Getting Pregnant with PCOS *Links to our programs:* * The PCOS Protocol * Eggducated

Laziness Does Not Exist
Today I'm chatting with the author of the upcoming book Laziness Does Not Exist, Dr. Devon Price. Most of us think of ourselves as inherently lazy - but what if we are just tapped out? Burnt out?

There is almost always a pretty legit reason we *feel lazy* whether it be mental health struggles, not having the support we need, or just... being burnt out. Did you know that the 40 hour work week is too long? And studies show that the max work time you can really "get" out of people is 3-4 hours a day??? YEA!!! Listen to this one.

Thanks for Listening!
I've not written a blog for months. I've been moving house, had little internet connection, and been generally busy, and tired. I'm glad that this past couple of weeks I had felt like I have the time and space to start writing again, so there will be blogs to come, soon. I wanted to put something down to express my gratitude for all of you who have listened to and supported my podcast over the past three years. I didn't think that it would go anywhere, or that anyone would really listen to it. Well, you did. So thank you. I've had such support for the podcast, that I feel extremely guilty about announcing that I will not be producing any more episodes. But, as I discovered in the last 6 months or so, feeling guilty about stopping is not a good enough reason to keep going. I'd rather than stop completely than keep it going, but only publish episodes sporadically. Podcasts are a lot of work. Finding people to interview, scheduling interviews, and editing audio after interviews. If I am quick, an episode may take 6 hours start to finish (including scheduling etc), but many episodes take more like 10. It is a time thing. It's not that I don't have time. I can always make time. These days, my "free" time — time to do absolutely nothing productive at all — is increasingly precious and glorious to me. I am growing less inclined to give it up. I'm more selfish about my time — unapologetically, I enjoy that I enjoy being just me, without being the 'doing stuff' me. This 'wanting to do nothing' is actually exactly something that scared me when I had anorexia. I was scared that if I allowed myself to rest, I would always want to rest. I would forget how to be productive. My 'value' would decrease. Because when I was sick, I thought my value was in my ability to never rest, and always be productive. (Which, if you think about it, in a famine, would be about right.) The wonderful thing about being human in a brain that doesn't have anorexia any more, doesn't perceive that resources are scarce, and therefore doesn't believe that value is in productivity, is that I have the freedom to see the real value of being human. I know that sounds incredibly deep and ridiculous, but it is true. The other night, I was going to make this podcast. I had an hour or so. I was making my way up my back porch steps, and one of the puppies followed me up and "pawed" me on the leg, asking for attention. Years ago, when my value was in being productive, I either wouldn't have noticed him, or I would have noticed him, and gone inside anyway. These days, I'm more inclined to sit on the floor and play with the dogs because they asked than I am to go inside and start editing audio. Sometimes it is a puppy. Sometimes it is a horse. Sometimes it is a pattern that the wind has made in the snow that I need to stare at. Sometimes, very often, it is snuggling with Matt. I never take for granted my recovered brain. A brain that allows me to see the value in happiness, and being human. Never, ever, take it for granted. I feel blessed to have known a brain in starvation mode, if only because it allows me to know the bliss of not being there. Anyway. That's my way of saying there will be no more podcasts. Just because it is the right time to stop. I appreciate you for listening.

Ep. 379 - Alok Vaid Menon: Self-Expression is The Medicine
THE INTERVIEW K+L originally spoke to Alok Vaid Menon about two years ago — or, in 2020 terms, a lifetime ago — and it continues to be a relevant and important conversation for us to share. There are few people who have had such a lasting impact, not just from the show but from life. K+L left this conversation feeling more human, more connected, more aware of how they affect others: exactly what our world desperately needs more of right now. Alok also recently released a book, “Beyond the Gender Binary,” which shows that gender is a malleable and creative form of expression only limited by your creativity. So, to celebrate the book and this beautiful, powerful, kind, and heart-centered soul, we wanted to share the conversation again. We also talk about: * The ins and outs of your passion being your business * Growing up (emotionally repressed) in a small Texas town * Southern “politeness” * Balancing being a strong example for others + being a complex, flawed human * Why it hurts when we turn someone into a metaphor and a symbol * Visibility does not mean safety for women and trans people * Where Alok developed their emotional vocabulary * Gender + shame * Learning not to fear their own gender nonconformity * The psychology of fascism * Why Alok is frustrated by the individualism of self-care * The people who bully us want to be us * Aesthetics as political resistance * Violence against gender non-conforming individuals has escalated over the past few years * What we can all do, every day, to challenge the current paradigm Find more to love at!

Ep 133 - Why balance isn't the answer
Welcome to How to Love Your Body - On today’s episode we are going to be talking about why balance isn’t the answer. It seems to be a common misconception you can stop dieting and just be balanced - what a healthy and sensible answer to our food issues! This actually is just another way to control. When you think balance you may think - never eat too much or little. Instead of restricting the dessert, allow yourself to have a little. Eat but make sure you “watch what you eat.” It may not be extreme restriction because you are allowing but it still is all about limitation - and limitation - and forcing yourself into a perfectly balanced place will still cause bingeing. Obsession. And we can bet there isn’t that feeling of freedom around food. Trying to force yourself into balance isn’t food freedom - it’s dieting. Diet culture is getting sneakier - they sell a “gentle” diet and call it balance. If humans could just limit what they ate and find “balance” - that means diets would work - but scientifically we know diets don’t work. Pursuing balance is actually counterproductive. It is still a form of restriction - causing you to retaliate against the rules, keeping in that screw it attitude when you mess up. We know - you may be saying, but I want to feel balanced with food. I want to be able to allow all food and give myself unconditional permission to eat and I also want to care about my health - I want to eat nutrient dense food I want to eat the rich pasta dish and the salad. I want to eat veggies with some of my meals and eat the dessert.. Isn’t that balance? How do I achieve this? Balance is a great place to land and that’s where we feel we live and many clients we have worked with have ended up. NOTE: Balance is not something that is now perfectly in the middle. It’s not a forced place where you are never too full or never too hungry - it’s not the center. There’s an ebb and flow to balance in the UnDiet world - It’s a sway - on any given day you may eat more, you may eat less, you may eat anything in between. Balance is, yes, eating the pizza and the salad but it is also eating just the pizza on certain days because that’s what sounds the best to you and your body and then on other days it might be eating just the salad if that’s what feels the best to you - there is no diet mentality attached and all decisions are made from a place of how your body feels - certain days COULD look like “traditional balance” where you have some of everything without swaying too far from the middle but it could also look like swaying far to the left or right of the middle - that is IE / UnDieting and balance / that is how you live a sustainable life because there’s lots of room to sway. But when you pursue balance, it’s forced, it’s fake, it’s a diet - it’s still rules, there’s still shoulds. It seems counterintuitive but you need to forget about balance in order to naturally find balance. Meaning - if you are totally fine with eating as much chocolate as you want, anytime, any amount - there are no rules, shoulds or anything to retaliate against and your body has permission to find balance within that freedom, leaving you FREE and balanced. This doesn’t mean you always only have a couple bites but it means that it’s just a food that fits into your life with ease and flow. True lifelong balance can only come with giving yourself complete freedom and go from there. And of course this won’t happen on day 1 but it does come. Here are some ways you can work on finding balance as an UnDieter. -Spot all or nothing thinking around food - this is not about living in the world of extremes anymore. See where you can spot yourself thinking - I can have it all - OR - I can have nothing. I either have to be good OR bad. I have to restrict it all OR eat it all. There is no in between. Spotting this type of thinking is the first step to creating more balance in your life - awareness is how you can begin to shift the way you think about food and how you make choices about food. -Use the word AND - this is something that will allow you to “have it all” - you don’t have to opt for the “healthy” or “unhealthy” - if you really want - Instead of having the burger and fries or the green kale salad you can have the burger AND the salad - ALLOWING any foods at all -No judgement zone - Days are going to be different - the signals will be different - hunger will be different - and that is 100% acceptable - no matter what happens in a day - no judgement - it’s learning, it’s experimenting. -Honor and expect the ebb and flow - Know that balance does not mean right smack dab in the center - KNOW and expect there will be an ebb and flow and know that is normal - and everyone’s ebb and flow will be different. Whatever your ebb and flow is what is. No forcing. No changing. No fixing - it’s right where it’s meant to be Let go of the idea of balance and let your body find it itself This is the only way to have balance within a life of freedom It’s not up to you and when you CHOOSE to be balanced, it comes with this work. Just like your weight - we don’t get to choose and magically have the body size we want, our bodies find it’s happy place on it’s own. Mindset of Allowing - being completely okay with eating and eating enough. Eating any kinds of food and then within that framework you can listen to your body. This is a key requirement to balance (even though it seems like the opposite would be true) You may have heard that we have a documentary coming out in early 2021 called Behind the Before and After - We’re super excited about this so we decided to have an online community prescreening so we can all watch it together and you can also be entered into a giveaway where you can get 6 months of free UnDiet Support.

This course is meant to meet you wherever you’re at in your journey towards ditching diet culture, reclaiming the word diet, and making peace with yourself and your body. We want to make sure that this course is as valuable as possible for you, so we want to dedicate one to two of our weekly podcast episodes to answering your burning questions about diet, diet culture, nutrition, body shame, dealing with people, making peace with food, being kind to yourself, and anything else, really!

MEET KAYLA REYNOLDS, MS Kayla Reynolds is a late-twenty something New York City transplant, originally from Montreal, Canada, and the co-leader of Badass Lady Gang’s NYC chapter. When she’s not dancing with her BALG, she’s working on checking off walking every street of Manhattan by foot, exploring one neighborhood at a time, and determined to find NYC’s best cold brew and restaurants along the way. As a child and eventually teenager, Kayla joined every team sport imaginable, and cheerleading quickly became her passion. Growing up very active and also experiencing many digestive issues, she became interested in nutrition and the impact that food had on the way she felt and performed. Paired with her love of all things science, she eventually chose to move to NYC to pursue her Master of Science in Human Nutrition at Columbia University. It was there, alongside her own life experiences where she realized that the food that made it to our plates is only a sliver of the health equation. Over time, her passion for mental health and wellbeing grew, and she began to see our “diet” as more than just food, but everything that we consume -- social media, advertisement, relationships, self-talk, … and so much more. Now, when it comes to nutrition, she believes that our thoughts about food, our bodies, and ourselves impact us more than any one food we eat (or don’t), and that having a healthy, balanced, low-stress relationship with food is most important. Food doesn’t need to be so complicated. So, she’s dedicated to helping people ditch diet culture and lead full, fulfilling lives, which can’t happen on an empty stomach.

How Your Personality Fuels Your Eating Disorder AND Recovery with Carolyn Costin, LMFT
According to world-renowned clinician and author Carolyn Costin, LMFT, Founder of Monte Nido and The Carolyn Costin Institute, people with eating disorders often share similar personality traits, such as being anxious, perfectionistic, controlling, rigid, impulsive, and/or compulsive. Rather than blaming your genetic predispositions for fueling your eating disorder and rejecting these traits, she shares how to use them to shine, even during times of crisis. In this episode of The Recovery Warrior Show, Carolyn dives into many concepts from her book 8 Keys to Recovery from an Eating Disorder such as the importance of detaching worth from ego, learning acceptance, and how to reduce suffering during difficult times. === Holiday Support === Sign up at to get access to an exclusive training series to support you in feeling your best over the holidays. === In This Show You'll Learn: === • How to shift your personality traits from darkness to light. • Why differentiating your “ED Self” from your “Healthy Self” is vital. • How the practice of acceptance vs. resistance can help you recover. • Why hating your eating disorder is not the answer and how working with it can help you heal. • Why it’s important to find a balance between feeling emotions and distracting in a healthy way. • What “soul moments” are and how to find them. === Show Notes ===
