Happy Monday! I promised I would try to get a post out today so here I am. Before I get to today’s post, I want to talk a little about overwhelm and goals. I have a lot of goals, dreams, and things I’m looking to achieve with my life. There was a point over the summer when I realized I had so many things that I wanted to do, that I was literally STUCK in a place of overwhelm that I didn’t know what action to take because I couldn’t figure out where to start. Which task needed to take priority? Where could I wait?
What I decided to do was look at the 3 big things: get this space back up and running (including transferring posts from JT30), complete the studying for my NASM CPT renewal, write the book I’ve been wanting to write.
I decided to give 1 month to each goal. August was about moving the blog; September was studying; October was starting my book. In August I accomplished my goal. In September, I finished reading the NASM textbook and scheduled my exam for this past Saturday. I took the last few weeks to study and review, and I’m happy to say that I passed my exam! So now I can really dive into my October goal of starting to write my book. I have played around with an outline but it still needs some more work.
Anyway, I love podcasts and so many of my friends are constantly asking me for new ones to check out so I thought it would be fun today to share a few of my favorite podcasts with you! Today’s favorites are some of my favorites for when I need some inspiration.
- Rise (and Rise Together) with Rachel Hollis
- Happier in Hollywood
- Goal Digger with Jenna Kutcher
- Mind Body Green
- 10% Happier with Dani Harris
There are a boatload of other podcasts that I love and I hope to keep sharing more podcast lists with you, if you’d like!
Are you a podcast fan? What are some of your favorites?
Is 10% Happier also a book? That seems familiar. Thanks for sharing though – I do want to get back into podcasts. Great job on accomplishing your goals these last couple months – good luck with the book. I’m hoping to get back into my own WIP too!

I need to give more podcasts a try, I really haven’t been listening to any! This seems like a good list to start with!
I’ve heard of a couple of these but not the others. It amazes me how many podcasts there are these days. I’m definitely going to check these out and start listening to a few of them. Thanks for sharing!

Congratulations on passing your exam!! Way to go!! Thanks for sharing the podcasts recommendations. I’ve only recently starting listening to podcasts (I know, where have I been?!?) so love hearing about good ones.
I also love Happier in Hollywood (and Happier). Here are some of my other inspirational favorites: By the Book (a humor podcast technically, but they live by a new self help book each week), Dear Sugars, and Hurry Slowly.
