“There is no shortage of information, but there is a whole lot more confusion and overwhelm probably in a lot of ways than there was before.” (8:10)
“We are so worried about what everybody thinks, we overextend ourselves, we are always worried about how that will make us look if we say ‘no’ to somebody, and we need to get better at all of that because otherwise, we are creating a whole lot of stress, cortisol release, inflammation, all of it.” (13:31)
“We’re the anti-gurus, we are so imperfect, we are so right there with the women who listen to us, we are kind of right there with you. We had to choose our health, our families, our marriages, and the other things that really matter above pushing this book out there, and that’s okay.” (18:55)
“It’s so worth it for you to feel like ‘I can just listen to myself and honor what works for me’, and not get so caught up in what’s working for someone else, or again what may be very well based in good science, it just doesn’t land well for you with your goals, your hormone imbalances and your particular set of stuff right now.” (26:15)
“I think as women we often want to go back to ‘well that worked really well for me last time’. And then we try it and it doesn’t work so well for us this time because we are in a different place right now. Hormones change and we got to be able to roll with that.” (38:30)
