TBW Guest: Jill Thiry on Embracing Change

TBW Guest: Jill Thiry on Embracing Change

January 19, 2022

Jill's dedication to Intention Setting and Change started within her family, and the effectiveness of the exercises spurred her to launch Club Change.  In this episode, Jill talks about change and intention setting - how it differs from goal setting and why change can be hard.

Follow along as Jill leads Agnes through an intention setting exercise (all you need is a pencil and paper). 

Jill reminds us to be Present, not busy, and to start with small steps.  Small steps seem to be a recurring theme this new year... take heed.

As we're sitting in a Canadian winter, you'll want to learn more about Rancho La Puerta!

TBW Guest: Survivor / Thriver / Life Coach Bobbi Kahler

TBW Guest: Survivor / Thriver / Life Coach Bobbi Kahler

January 5, 2022

Bobbi's identity as an athlete was interrupted with a diagnosis with a 3% chance of surviving.  It took 10 years but survive she did, coming back as a stronger athlete than pre-diagnosis. 

She relates how a walk to the end of the driveway one day was a major success. She explains how to start with those first small goals and then you can learn your way forward.  Bobbi agrees it isn't always easy and you can't compare yourself to others. She offers some tips if family members aren't on board.

Such an inspiring story with a lot of logical thoughts to start us off this New Year.

You can find Bobbi at and there's a link to her podcast there too.

TBW Guest: Natural Lifestyle Coach Dr. Leslie Kasanoff

TBW Guest: Natural Lifestyle Coach Dr. Leslie Kasanoff

December 1, 2021

Today's guest is a great start to December - the month when we often spend indulging our waistline, we socialize instead of exercise, and many of us contemplate what we’d like to change up as a new year presents.

Dr. Leslie Kasanoff spent her life in healthcare, including 25 years as a holistic chiropractor on the Central Coast of California and 10 years before that as a Medical Laboratory Scientist. Recently, she's combined her “science geek” side and her alternative care practitioner side to help women through health coaching and consulting. She works with women who want to lose weight, address hormone issues, and resolve or reverse chronic health issues - not just treat them - using food and lifestyle as medicine. 

She's an ‘idealistic skeptic,’ having a science mind but a caring heart and a passion for helping people with simple effective tools.

Today, Leslie discusses the body and its abilities to heal, health and vitality, and hormones.  She debunks several myths around diet and lifestyle, with some recommendations for making it through the holiday season.

Editorial comment: Agnes did make the Sweet Potato Tacos with Cabbage Cups for herself, the mentioned vegan friend and his mother and they ALL loved them!
