Conquering Self-Sabotage & Staying Motivated When Results Are Slow — Q&A with Coach Vanessa - EP92

October 29, 2021

I have a very special podcast for you this week! I have never done this before, but I thought it would be so much fun to let one of my coaches take the reins on an entire podcast episode! 


And you’re going to love it!


Today’s episode is with Coach Vanessa Burgess! Vanessa has been with the Sculpted Vegan team for several years, and is one of my most experienced coaches! She has done nearly every program I’ve ever created, and has learned so much in the years she’s been with the team. When she first started her SV journey in January 2019, she was breastfeeding 3 babies, working 4 jobs from home, and doing the original 4-Week Shred all at the same time. She has consistently stayed the course, listened to feedback, implemented things she was terrified of (like eating thousands of calories a day to build muscle), and has reaped the rewards ten-fold.


So I sent her into the streets (a.k.a Butt Camp FB group) to ask the competitors what they’re dying to know about all things mindset, health, and fitness so she could answer them live on the podcast!


In this episode, Vanessa gets reeeeal! She actually had an epiphany in real-time when discussing some tips on crushing self-sabotage. She dug into how she personally rewires her brain to send her excuses packin’, tips on building muscle when you don’t have access to the big fancy gym equipment, the truth behind fat gain if you eat before bed, and so much more!


Below are today’s questions:


1:21 Can you please help us with some self-sabotage strategies, like how to overcome self-sabotage?

33:45 What is your favorite quad exercise (small home gym with some machines, but not all the fancy guys)?

35:25 Do you push to failure on each body part in every set? Or do you keep 1-2 reps in reserve at certain times?

38:00 How much of an importance does food timing play?

40:57 Best tips for staying motivated when you’re not seeing physical changes?

51:45 Can you debunk the myth around not eating before bed?


I know you will absolutely love this episode! Happy listening!

Love Kim xo
