  • Things could actually be going well but you either feel uncomfortable with that or unworthy of that, so you sabotage it.

Self Sabotage Tips:

If you have suffered some sort of a trauma: Seeking out counseling, talk Therapy, a holistic health coach, and or a naturopath can be healing in these situations.

Half the battle is recognizing when you have a problem.

  • Looking at food as food neither good nor bad.
  • Savoring your food.
  • Planning a treat or cheat.
  • Crowd out unhealthy choices by eating more healthy filling foods.
  • Educating yourself in the kitchen.
  • Having fun around food.
  • Self Acceptance.
  • Hiring someone to help you navigate.

Cravings

  • Cravings are the gate-keepers to what your body really needs
  • When your craving something sweet it might mean you need less stress, more sleep, balance, maybe less red meat. Nutrients you may need are fresh berries and more leafy greens
  • When craving caffeine you may need energy and need to incorporate it through the foods you eat.
  • When feeling overly stressed  you may need to start including foods that are grounding like turnips, sweet potatoes, or carrots.

What we talked about in this episode:

  • Making New Years resolutions a lifestyle.
  • When setting a goal, try not to have  the "its all or nothing" mentality.
  • Give yourself a pass to suck until you don't.

Obi's Three Action Steps To Make New year's Resolutions A Lifestyle 

1. Being around people that actually support you and are like-minded.

2. Writing down your goals on a piece of paper.

3. It's A marathon not a sprint.

  • Everyone's DNA isn't the same, so in terms of what we can achieve it will vary: Ripped Abs, Tight Hamstrings, or developed Glutes etc.
  • We all have our strengths and weaknesses.
  • Focus on your strengths.
  • Writing down your goals increase your chances of achieving them by 50%.
  • Tracking your progress is important because it get addicting to the your results.
  • If you don't see progress it's hard to stick with something.
  • Tracking your progress also lets you know when you need to switch it up.

Sabotage looks like:

1. Your mother baking you your favorite triple-stack fudge brownies though it's not your birthday.

2. Your significant other bringing you ooey gooey cheese pizza.

3. Friends inviting you on a Multitude of wine outings.

4. co-workers egging you on "oh come on can't you just have a little bit?" 

  • I'ts ok to say NO! Don't be food-shamed if you want to eat that or if you don't want to eat that.
  • Obi Obadike is Steve Harvey's Personal trainer and Steve has gotten into phenomenal shape under Obi's tutelege. 

Obi's Tips on Achieving Higher Success

1. Creating relationships matter people have to want to work with you. People have to like you. Having a bad attitude gets you no where.

2. Laying down your ego, creating trust through your hard-work and integrity.

3. Doing everything you can to execute and get the job done.

Ep 54 Elaine LaLanne- Longevity Secrets to Laugh and Live Young

Social Media- Elaine LaLanne www.JackLanne.com

Facebook - Elaine LaLanne or Jack Lanne

Before Jillian Michael's, Tony Horton, Kasiafit, Denise Austin, and Jane Fonda there was Jack LaLanne the pioneer and "Godfather of Fitness", He is responsible for many of the fitness staples in the industry today some of which are the; protein bar, protein shake, leg extension, leg curl, cable pulleys, and so much more. Learn all about the making of this fitness icon and the wife beneath his wings, Elaine LaLanne. She is 91 and rocking her age and still lectures all over the country.

I love, eat, and breathe fitness, so I was beyond honored to interview The First Lady of Physical Fitness, Elaine LaLanne . She is the wife of fitness legend Jack LaLanne.

I'm not going to lie.   I got pretty teary-eyed when I was preparing for this podcast about Jack and Elaine LaLanne. Together they have created the most amazing legacy that we all still benefit from today. You know what they say; behind every great man is an incredible woman. 

Elaine LaLanne is nothing less than incredible! At 91 she puts us all to shame.  Elaine does full push ups, takes no medication, and is as sharp as a tack. In this episode we talk about how Elaine, the then smoker and donut lover, met Jack, The Godfather of Fitness and he changed her life forever.  Jack also had a life-changing event happen to him; perhaps that was why he was so interested in making an impact in other people’s lives.  Jack was ill as a teen and his entire life was changed from a lecture by Paul Braggs of Braggs Aminos. This was a lecture in which Jack was almost turned away because it was sold out. Paul made room for Jack and his mother right up front. Talk about divine intervention.

As Jack got older he wanted people to realize that age was just a number. He set out to prove it by completing surreal physical feats, one of which was his infamous swim from Alcatraz to the mainland with his hands and feet shackled behind his back towing a 1000 pound boat at 60 years young. Jack really stood in the gap as a pioneer.  He was responsible for so much of what we see today in fitness, from creating the selectorized weight machines, cable/pulley machines, and leg extension, to having the idea for The Smith Machine.  Jack and Elaine encouraged and introduced women to the weight room, back then they were of the thinking that women belonged in the kitchen and not in the weight room. The backwards thinking was that women would look like men if they weight trained.  Also the thinking in that day was men in sports shouldn’t weight train, because they wouldn’t be able to move as fast and if they were muscle bound and that it would slow them down. Jack LaLanne,The Godfather of Fitness, was amazing from the sheer feats of physical fitness he performed, to the machines he created that still we use today.  Jack was also responsible for creating the first protein shake and protein bar.  Jack was such a pioneer and an icon in the industry and his wife was right alongside him being on the air helping him do all that he did.  She is a fabulous lady and I am so inspired by her. I met her at the World IDEA Blog Fest and it was an instant connection. She was such a gracious lady.  I took a leap and asked her if she would do a Facebook live video with me and she did. It didn't take the first time so I had to get up the courage to go up and ask her again and she was such so gracious. We did it one more time and now I’m interviewing her for a second time on my podcast. ”Life favors the bold.”

What we talked about in this episode:

1. Move it or lose it

2. Fruits and Vegetables cleanse the system.

3. Every cell in your body is continually changing. Your body is new every seven years.

4. Why its important to have a good gut.

5. The effect of good microbiome and a great probiotic.

6. If you nibble all day long you never realize how much your eating.

7. What your doing right now is walking and talking tomorrow.

8. A sense of humor is important to longevity.

9. Jack wanted to prove that if you take care of yourself it doesn't matter your age

10.People are old because they're told their old.

11. ARC is Elaine's secret and mission in life. A-Attitude R-Resistance C Consistency.

12. Sign up for Maria's Schriver's Sunday Paper free.

13. A funny story of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jack working out.

14. Jack always said "If you do everything in moderation you can't go wrong."

15. "It's not what you do some of the time that counts its what you do all of the time that counts." Jack LaLanne

16. When someone has a birthday Elaine has a piece of cake but she says Jack was always very disciplined and never deviated.

17. At 91 Elaine is living strong lecturing and writing a new book.

18. The story of how Elaine met Jack and fell in love.

19. Face exercises to keep you looking young.

20. Why Jack wore ballet slippers and where he got the idea to wear a jumpsuit.

21. Jack would say "all I want to do is help people help themselves."

22. What people don't know that don't know.

23. Humor is the best medicine.

A licensed real estate professional by her sophomore year in college and a real estate and mortgage broker at 21 years old, Patrice took her boutique brokerage from the dining room of her 700-square foot condo to a 7-figure real estate empire by just 25. After losing her fortune in the Great Recession, she dedicated her life to not just rebuilding and reinventing her own life, but helping the masses move from debt management to money mastery.

Nationally known as “America’s Money Maven”, Patrice has had tremendous success with her “money mindset” approach to personal finance. Her teachings go beyond coupon cutting, budgeting, and credit repair, and focus on shifting mindset, earning more, and living your purpose. Patrice is committed to redefining the term “wealth”, encouraging women to have “wealth” in all aspects of their lives by pursuing their dreams, being fulfilled, and earning more without ever chasing money.

She has built a thriving community of engaged women committed to taking their personal finances, careers, and lives to the next level, and continues to invest in women worldwide through her work.

Each year she electrifies tens of thousands as a sought-after speaker from colleges to churches and conferences nationally and has shared the stage with renowned speakers such as Lisa Nichols, Laila Ali, Paul C. Brunson and Steve Harvey. Most recently, Patrice appeared on Centric TV’s, The Round, delivering a dynamic and empowering talk on success.

EP 39 Sarina Jain Masala Bhangra -Bollywood Style- Be Happy In Your Body.

Sarina Jane.jpg

Coined as the "Indian Jane Fonda," Sarina Jain is the creator of the original Masala Bhangra® DVD series.  An AFAA® certified fitness instructor for over 24 years, she teaches classes ranging from step aerobics, total body conditioning, and many more.  She successfully moves, touches and inspires many people around the world with her knowledge and passion for Bhangra and Bollywood.  Recognized as a global game changer, Sarina has over 15 workout videos under her belt with Masala Bhangra® classes offered in over 20 countries around the world.

Although India’s glitzy Bollywood films have featured Bhangra and other folk-dances and music for quite some time, it took a vivacious, young Indian-American fitness instructor to devise the concept of choreographing Bhangra along with modern, funky dance moves to appeal to the American exercise industry. In the process, Jain has impacted the entire fitness industry, and has been heralded in the press throughout the U.S. and around the world.

Jain introduced her Bhangra/Bollywood-style fitness routine to the U.S. with her first workout tape in 1999, and has since directed and produced a total of twelve high-intensity, easy to follow workouts in her Masala Bhangra® DVD series.  Born in California, she started leading fitness classes at a very young age, and has been a certified fitness instructor for 23 years. She completed studies in marketing and public relations in Los Angeles, before founding her company, Masala Dance & Fitness, Inc. in 1999. She soon relocated to New York where she successfully cultivated a larger audience for her cross-cultural fitness ideas. In 2010, Jain was the new face for Nestle Fitness throughout Latin America, where 2.6 million cereal boxes include her “Masala Bhangra® Bollywood Style” DVD.

Jain proudly embraces her Indian heritage, and is an active member of the Indian-American community. “I lost my father to a massive cardiac arrest at the age of 47, my Mom was 40 years old.  After this tragic accident, I just had to do something about this and inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and be the first to bring Indian dance to the fitness industry at a global level. People fall in love with the beat of Bhangra,” Jain says, “the music combined with its sensuous, vigorous movements recreates the excitement that an occasion is being celebrated. People have so much fun; they don’t realize they are getting an awesome cardiovascular and muscle-strengthening workout. Bringing Masala Bhangra® to people all over the world is so gratifying—I am absolutely living my dream.”

After losing her father to a massive cardiac arrest at the age of 47, she was inspired to bring Indian dance to the fitness industry at a global level.  The loss of her father is what started this entire journey!

What we talked about during this episode:

  • Bollywood Dance Beat is addictive.
