Welcome to the second season of The Betty Rocker Show! Thank you so much for being part of my community of awesome flawsome women who are rocking their health and fitness through their entire life. A lot has happened recently and I want to get you all caught up with this episode.

This Week’s Challenge:
My challenge to you this week is to notice and embrace your flawsome-ness. Write the word FLAWSOME on a post it note and put it on a mirror in your house, and/or in front of your work station. Think about how this word shows up in your life, and how it’s different than the word “perfect.”
Use #flawsome on social media and tag me in your posts to let me know your insights.
Episode 2 will be out in 2 week’s time!
Dealing with a Big Move and Big Health Changes
After a recent move to a new state, I had hoped that I would be able to get my health back on track. I thought that staying true to the 4 Pillars of Health would be enough, but something was changing. I was gaining weight, losing muscle, and lacking energy. I thought stress was at the root of it. It was 2020 after all. Who wasn’t stressed that year?
To get to the root of the issue, I ran a bunch of tests with the guidance of my functional medicine doctor (who will be on the show in our next episode) and began treating what we found.

Shifting Our Mindset to Improve Our Health
Dealing with these changes required a mindset shift. Instead of being frustrated with the process and wanting to force things to go faster, I refocused on why I wanted to be healthy in the first place, and gave myself extra self love.
Being able to keep using my Betty Rocker practices and staying true to the 4 Pillars of Health really supported me along the way. All the things I did leading up to this year felt like a “health savings” I could draw upon, and I felt fortunate to have that resilience built in to myself.
“You still want to be doing your own research, listening to your body, seeing what’s going on. Doing your own healthy lifestyle practices to the best of your ability and not relying 100% on just your doctor to tell you what’s going on…. The more knowledge we get for ourselves, the better and more quickly we can be an ally with our doctor and get better more quickly.” [8:21]
“When you have identified that you have something going on with you, whether it’s hormones, an illness and injury – something underlying that your body is dealing with at a cellular level – you have to give yourself the time to heal.” [13:26]
“I had to really stop worrying what other people thought of me and care a lot more about what I thought of myself and how I was planning to take care of myself. I just got really focused on my mental health and on just the self-love piece.” [14:23]
“I think we just have to be kind to ourselves, let the process unfold, know that you’re every day learning new things that can help you in your journey and stay open to them.” [34:13]
Key Takeaways From This Episode
- Gaining weight doesn’t necessarily mean that you should be eating less and working out more. There could be many reasons why it’s happening. Talk with your doctor and get the tests you need to get to the root of the issue.
- Healing takes time and patience. Focus on what you have control over and never stop loving and accepting yourself.
- Mental health is just as important as physical health.
