PODCAST: “How to Stop Taking Things Personally” Naked Broad View, EPISODE 27
All day, every day, there’s a dialogue going on in our heads. As we interact with others that voice tells us how to interpret other people’s actions, comments, even their mannerisms and body language. We’re sizing them up, basically. As we do so we’re evaluating all of those behaviors vis-à-vis ourselves; that is, “Why did he say that? Does he think I’m stupid?” Or “I texted her hours ago and I know she’s always looking at his phone. Why hasn’t she answered? She must think I’m too needy.” And on and on.
But here’s a thought: what if other people’s actions, reactions, etc. have nothing to do with us? What if they are literally 100% driven by the person who’s having them? Wouldn’t that be incredibly liberating? In fact, it is.
Listen in and Jill and I discuss how we’re each learning to do this and the tremendous changes we’ve experienced in our relationships and in our own inner peace.

I’ve been experiencing foot pain recently—and I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me to turn my shoes over to look at the tread!!! When I did, I was horrified. No wonder I was having foot pain; my tread was worn thin. Yikes!!! And now tomorrow’s run gets a brand new pair of (my favorite!) @brooksrunning shoes! 🏃🏼♀️💜👊🏼 #runhappy #running #runningshoes #newshoes #mindthetread #personaltrainer #fitnessover50
How believable are the numbers you see on cardio machines??
In a word (okay, two words), not very!
BUT WAIT!! There is a way to improve the accuracy and trust the numbers from one workout to the next.
I’m so glad you asked! 😂
Use the same machine each time you workout. That is, try to use the same treadmill, the same elliptical, or in my case today, the same blasted stair stepper that I used last week.
Why? Because they’re notoriously wrong. But even more so if you’re using the machine on the end one day and the sixth one down the next time. These machines get A LOT of use, and the don’t get calibrated often (or ever!), so the numbers aren’t particularly reliable.
But using the same machine each time at least allows you to assume that the numbers from that machine will give you a reasonably accurate, apples-to-apples comparison from one workout to the next.
So, last time I tortured myself on this exact stair stepper I did 99 floors in 30 minutes, today I did 101. Progress! 👊🏼💖 #personaltrainer #gymtips #cardio #healthylifecoach
