Kate Bee- How To Build A Life You Don't Need To Numb Out From

FB Kate Quote 1.jpg

Drinking alcohol is portrayed as tons of fun, socially acceptable, and the norm.  But should it be the norm? Do you struggle with alcohol? Maybe not on a deep level to where it affects your day to day activities, but enough for you to notice some differences in your performance at work and everyday life?  Does giving up alcohol mean no more fun in life?

Listen to the podcast HERE

In this episode I talk with Kate Bee who knew she needed a break from the alcohol.  Turning to Alcoholics Anonymous seemed to be her only choice, but she found that she wasn’t in the category of it controlling her life, and found that there were no other groups or organizations dealing with the topic.  This inspired Kae B to start her own mission to help people who are in the in between stages of drinking recreationally and an alcoholic. So she started the Sober School.

  • Why do we socially drink?

  • How does our drinking affect others.

Topics Discussed:

  • How to have fun without alcohol.

  • Recognizing when alcohol begins to interfere with your life.

  • Feeling like you are standing out if you don’t drink.

  • How to politely not drink in a crowd.

  • Shame and alcohol.

As an Institute of Integrative Nutrition graduate, an award-winning fitness competitor, and elite obstacle racer. she collaborated on the fitness portion of the book “Fat Flush for Life” with mentor and New York Times Best Selling author Ann Louise Gittleman. This book was listed in Time magazine as one of the top ten diet books for 2009. As a former columnist for 12 years for Ms. Fitness magazine, Linda decided to put everything into a book and it really evolved and became “The Sisterhood of S.W.E.A.T.”.  Her book and the studio are all about helping women build confidence and self-esteem and learning to feel 100% great about themselves.    

Mitchell launched The Chickfit Studio in 2013. She says “At Chickfit, our priority is building women’s self-confidence. Our belief is that their newfound self-love will transfer into giving support and love to one another. Self-improvement equals empowerment.”

Mitchell was inspired to open The Chickfit Studio after she found that deep down in her heart she wanted to do something that was worthwhile and made real, lasting changes in people’s lives. She opened The Chickfit Studio after working as a group fitness director and personal trainer for about 25 years.
