F2FHQ 083 - Mindset is Everything

How badly do you want to reach your goals?  Are you thoughts taking you closer or further from your success?  Jake Challand joins us this week to discuss the power of your beliefs, awareness of what motivates you, and buying your lunch at a lumbar yard.

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast.  We are your hosts, Jake Challand and Carol Salva of the Firearms Radio Network.   In this podcast we are chronicling our journeys from Fat to Fit.  We talk about pursuing a healthier lifestyle not only in diet, but in all areas of life.


Jake found this around lunchtime when he was at a lumber yard.  Don’t tell me you can’t make ½ way decent choices almost anywhere...

From the Community:

Sandy Drummond from Facebook and Fitbit Group: Just listened to the latest episode with Kefir. Ahahha more confusion lol You are struggling with that last 10 lbs correct? Have you ever heard of JJ Virgin? She talks about how if you are sensitive to a food your weight could be from the inflammation these foods cause.   It's a tough diet to follow. I fell off the wagon when I was training for a half marathon while on the diet and felt was losing too much ( can't believe those words are coming from my mouth).  You eliminate gluten, eggs, dairy, soy, corn, peanuts and sugar/sweeteners. Think this could be your issue?


Thank you Sandy.  I have promised myself that I am going to follow JJ's protocol some day.  I'm just knee deep in Carb Nite right now.  Thank you for this link.  I hope it helps a listener.  I know it will help me.  Thank you so much.   -Carol

James R. Sanders, MFP:  Carol!!! I found your podcast through FRN and finally got caught up! I'm a gun guy, a machinist, a musician, a foody and a beer lover. I'm 29 and my fitness and nutrition is more or less maintenance at this point. I'm 5foot9 and when I was 18 I weighed 120lbs, I was tiny!! It took about 7 years to hit 150lbs and considered myself in great shape. 2 years ago I hit 170lbs and had to change something to prevent the 30 year old landslide. My journey is the opposite of most of your listeners but gaining weight, healthy weight, is a struggle all the same. I love the show, good info and interesting ideas! I'm not sure if I'll keep up with this MFP thing, but we'll see!!!

James, Thank you so much for the great feedback.  This is such great perspective.  We don't talk about it enough, but you are right.  Gaining healthy weight is challenging in this day and age, right?  Keep up the healthy living James!  See you on Myfitnesspal. - Carol
