Episode 40 - Working on Your Mindset
This week we talk about amongst other things, Christina's underwear issues (you'll hear),w e talk mindset and breaking through those mental barriers we set earlier on in life. Winter can be such a hard time for most of us and the weather doesn't help. We should really be doing what we naturally would and slow down. Almost like a hibernation. We're happily taking donations at this time if you wish to sponsor us to do nothing for 6 months next autumn/winter!  It all started when Christina was given THIS BOOK by a friend last year. It's supposed to be just about unlocking earning potential but it transformed her life because she finally realised why she was self sabotaging her weight loss. The book is called Get Rich Lucky Bitch by Denise Duffield-Thomas.  Lovely Girlie Bits (Aka Karen)'s video tutorial that goes very, but hilariously, wrong. Proving that not all beauty influencers are polished and perfect and she's not apologetic at all. We love her! https://youtu.be/gSCdDw-p7u4

Episode 24 Do Calories Matter?
Calorie Counting is something we've all been taught to do. Unfortunately we can go to extremes by counting every calorie based on an online calculator or not counting at all and overeating.
