Have You Been Told Your Missing Period Isn’t a Problem? (Episode 26)

Episode 26: Have You Been Told Your Missing Period Isn’t a Problem? 

In this week’s episode of Life After Cheer, I talk with Cynthia Donovan, the creator of the Period Recovery Podcast! She tells us about Hypothalamic Amenorrhea – a condition where menstruation goes missing. She fills us in on why it’s essential and gives us advice!

Listen in to today’s conversation with Cynthia to learn more!

  1. [3:10] What your body needs, adequate fuel and food, and what you may think it needs are two different things.
  2. [27:17] The key is getting support; a support system such as a professional can guide you.
  3. [36:02] If you’re going to make a reduction in your exercise or take it out, then you need to replace it with something; likely, you’re struggling with an unproductive mindset, so it’s essential that you fill it with something

How to Turn Challenges Into Opportunities (Episode 25)

How to Turn Challenges Into Opportunities (Episode 25)

Episode 25: How to Turn Challenges into Opportunities

For this week’s episode, it’s just you and I once again! On today’s episode,  I take the time to talk about a particular thought: how to turn the challenges in your life into opportunities, something much more inspirational.

Here are some tidbits I think you might want to remind yourself of:

  1. [2:57] Turning a challenge into an opportunity is all about your mindset
  2. [6:23] Even if you give things your all and it doesn’t work out how you planned it to, it’s not a failure – it means something bigger is coming 
  3. [11:54] Those who are problem solvers are those who will become successful

Q&A – Coaching Advice, Finding Your Passion, and the Power of Relationships (Episode 24)

Q&A – Coaching Advice, Finding Your Passion, and the Power of Relationships (Episode 24)

Episode 24: Q&A – Coaching Advice, Finding Your Passion, and the Power of Relationships

On this episode of Life After Cheer, Claudia Ralph returns to the podcast! Claudia and I answer plenty of questions and advise on finding your passion and how meaningful relationships are.  

Tune in for a riveting episode!

Here are a few specific points we discuss that seem worth pointing out:

  1. [10:45] If you don’t apply yourself, then you’re never going to get what you want – you have to, at the very least, try
  2. [25:50] Stick to your guns – don’t let people tell you how to run things; it’s up to you how things are run, not them, after all
  3. [33:35] We are our very own worst critics, so sometimes we need those people who will cheer on us and believe in our capabilities during hard times when we can’t believe in ourselves

Episode 23: Playing Full Out: How to Activate Your Abundance with Mindset Shifts

In this week’s episode of Life After Cheer, I talk with Lindsey Schwartz, the founder of Powerhouse Women and the host of the Powerhouse Women podcast! Lindsey and I talk about just what it means to live life to the fullest and what it means to trust yourself, even if you’re unsure of the outcome.

Here are a few takeaways from today’s conversation:

[6:10] When we feel like there is something more for us, there’s this moment you have to take the first step in faith[26:44] The end goal should not be perfection – in the end, true perfection does not exist[45:14] It’s okay if your mind goes back to the default fears, just know that you will be there for yourself – that is the only thing you are responsible for, in the end

CONNECT WITH LINDSEY:

Lindsey Schwartz is a best-selling author, master community builder, and the founder of Powerhouse Women. Fiercely committed to supporting other women, Lindsey invests her time in mentoring women and girls of all ages—from high achieving entrepreneurs to high school students. She’s also a real estate and angel investor for female-founded companies including beverage brand Lite Pink.

After seeing numerous women in her life stop short of pursuing their own entrepreneurial dreams because of fear and self-doubt, she saw the need for more honest conversations about the ups & downs of entrepreneurship in order to show women that they don’t have to have it all together to get started. From there, the Powerhouse Women community, annual event, and podcast were born, with the motto that we’re not meant to do business (or life) alone!

Body Image, Disordered Eating, and Cheerleading (Episode 22)

Episode 22: Body Image, Disordered Eating, and Cheerleading

On today’s episode of Life After Cheer, I’m talking with  Ashley Steinberger, registered dietician and founder of The Cheer Nutritionist, and Dr. Allison Smith, a teacher, and athletic trainer. We discuss disordered eating and body image, including the red flags to watch out for.

Here are a few takeaways from our important conversation:

  1. [14:40] The athletes are doing elite-level events, but they don’t see themselves as elite-level athletes
  2. [24:43] Red flags include constant and consistent injuries if there’s a quick or drastic body change, and overexercising
  3. [41:50] Give a new lifestyle a chance – try it for a couple of days, and decide whether you like it or not after some time
