no. 5 - The CrossFit Episode  

If you think CrossFit is a fitness craze only enjoyed by millennials, think again. With more than 4 million devotees, CrossFit has captured the hearts, minds and muscles of men and women all over the world. But with all that attention and success comes a fair amount of scrutiny.

Today's show jumps right into uncovering the strengths and weaknesses of CrossFit. In this episode:

You’ll hear two different perspectives from listeners of the show -- Holly and Stacy -- who share what they do (or don't) like about CrossFit. I'll also provide some personal insights on what I experienced when I tried CrossFit for the first time.

Then, I’ll share my interview with Chris Mohr, Ph.D., one of the country's leading fitness experts (who also happens to be a fellow Registered Dietitian). Specifically, he discusses:

why CrossFit "works" the importance of lifting heavy weights within the context of efficient, effective and safe weight training why the CrossFit community is a positive part of the overall experience when CrossFit crosses over into risky territory the importance of training to fatigue and not through pain

I wrap up my conversation with Dr. Mohr with insights on how to find a CrossFit box that provides adequate support and training and then offer a personal plea to women everywhere to start weight training now, no matter whether you try CrossFit or not.

To close out the show, you’ll hear from Rita, a fan of the show, answering the question "What Makes You SO Unmillennial?" You'll also hear her personal story on how the Eyelashes episode helped her (And Rita if you're reading -- Thank You for Your Message!)

no. 4 - The Botox Episode  

If you enjoy the show, please leave a review!

This week’s episode dives a little deeper into the topic of beauty by addressing one of the common questions for women after 40 — should I get Botox?

Admittedly, a more polarizing topic than last week’s episode on eyelashes, the decision to pursue Botox, along with other injectables (more often known in medical circles as “facial rejuvenation treatments”), is a highly personal one. While not right for everyone, for some people it’s an option they’d like to know more about. That’s the goal of this week’s new show — to give listeners more info to help with those decisions.

On this episode:

You’ll first hear two different perspectives — one from a listener who gets Botox treatments and the other from a listener who does not. Both women share the reasoning behind their choices and what they think are the most important concerns/considerations.

Then, I’ll share my interview with Dr. Landon McLain, a double board-certified cosmetic surgery specialist who offers facial rejuvenation treatment as a part of his oral/facial and cosmetic surgery practice. Specifically, he discusses:

the difference between the two most common injectable treatments — Botox and fillers how “over-treatment” might occur and what can be done about it the best time to start seeking out facial rejuvenation treatments to minimize the amount needed over time and maximize results what women can do BEYOND Botox to slow the aging process

I wrap up my conversation with Dr. McLain with some insights on how to find a reputable provider and then share my own experiences in terms of discomfort levels of both Botox and Sculptra.

To close out the show, you’ll hear from two fans of the show as they answer the question, "What Makes You SO Unmillennial?" (Note: If you’ve been listening to the podcast directly on the website, because you aren’t sure where to “subscribe” you will relate to the first listener for sure!)

no. 3 - The Eyelashes Episode  

The life of the unmillennial is clearly filled with some serious topics -- are you saving enough for retirement, have you reached the peak of your career and why do the aches/pains that used to disappear linger these days? Those are all worth topics to feature on the show, but that's absolutely NOT what we're discussing today.

'Cause a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

And I gotta do eyelashes.

If you've ever thought about glamming up your look or simply improving that wand of mascara in your make-up bag, today's show is for you!

On the show you'll learn about:

My experience with the eyelash boosting serum Latisse. I'll clear up some common misconceptions about Latisse and then you'll hear from Julie on her experience with the popular Rodan+Fields eyelash booster   Next, you'll hear from Danielle on her experience with lash extensions and learn more about the pros/cons, time commitment and cost. My last guest, Gretchen, will share why Magnetic Eyelashes were the best option for her and share insights about how easy (or hard) the lashes are to actually apply. I'll round out the discussion with insights into my absolute favorite mascara (affiliate link), plus provide some helpful tips on choosing just the right tube.

To close out the show, you'll also hear a fun feature entitled "If I had a VCR, I'd record this." Thinking fondly of the days when a VHS tape recording of your favorite show was your best bet for "binge watching," I'm giving a little preview into what I think you should be watching NOW on Netflix!

If you'd like to be featured in an upcoming show, either sharing what YOU are loving on Netflix now OR addressing my favorite question "What Makes You SO Unmillennial," simply send me a voicemail (via the widget one the site) OR, join the This Unmillennial Life Facebook Group to keep the conversation going. I'd love to hear what's on your mind! Lastly, if you enjoyed the show please leave us a rating and review.

Getting a good night's sleep is the stuff dreams are made of for many women.
