Make Some Noise with Andrea Owen

My dear friend Kate Anthony joins me on the podcast this week. Kate is a certified life coach who helps women decide if they should stay in or leave their marriages and then guides them through the divorce process should they choose to leave. She is amazing at what she does!

Prior to our podcast recording, we had planned on talking about a very specific topic. And then what unfolded was more akin to an open and honest conversation between two women, two friends, in their 40s talking about body image (trigger warning - we touch on eating disorders). We also discuss how our body image has changed and evolved over the years, the pitfalls we’ve experienced and more. This is not your typical episode which gets wrapped up with a pretty bow at the end. But neither does life, the journey is always evolving and changing.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • Two friends plan to dance like nobody's watching, while in workout clothes (11 minutes and 23 seconds)
  • Body comparison, cellulite, and managing your inner-critic (21:06)
  • Views on exercising, including some reasons why we push it away, plus body shaming in the self-help industry (27:33)
  • Being deliberate with rejecting diet culture (30:01)
  • Hitting rock bottom, Kate’s experience with an eating disorder and working through it (39:21)
  • Being intentional with body image beliefs and behaviors in order to be a better role model for our children, body shaming and cultural taboos (46:07)
