The first 3 months with my first foster placement were some of the most stressful times I’ve ever experienced. We were surviving and food was my fix. It was my coping mechanism.
We talk about those first three months and how and why she went from athletic and in shape to putting her health on the back burner and hitting rock bottom. We also cover:
What I wish someone would have told me is focus on micro habits, not macro habits. What we tend to do is jump into a program. We go from being very sedentary to signing up for something that involves a lot. We start, ten don’t stick and it’s because we haven’t built our way up to that.
Stephanie also talks about the reality of having kids and the effect not being in good health can have on caregiving. She gives ideas on incorporating all this with a busy household and kids with neurodiverse needs. She also gives you a wise piece of advice on what to say when you are in the trenches and might be hard on yourself. Stephanie knows her stuff and knows this life.
I also know she is good at what she does because Tara and I are in her program. And that’s why I wanted to share her knowledge with you. Check out the Show Notes links to her site and other accounts she recommends.
