Episode 350 When the Shit Hits the Fan

Listen On
Episode 350 When the Shit Hits the Fan

We have an acronym we use all the time inside of No BS: PLMF. In other words…

Pivot. Like a. Mother. Fucker.

Which is exactly what I did after I pooped my pants during a walk the other day. (I wish I were kidding.)

Listen to today’s podcast to get the whole messy story.

Did it suck? Of course! Did it change my schedule? Yep. Did I sit around in my doo-doo like a toddler and whine that my day was ruined?

Hell no!

Now, if I had listened to what my brain offered up after my “accident,” I wouldn’t have done shit for the rest of the day (no pun intended) except feel sorry for myself and eat chips on the couch.

Instead, I PLMF’d and even managed to fit a workout in.

Don’t believe your brain when it tells you everything has to go right or the whole day is ruined. It’s a lie that will keep you stuck forever.

In No BS, we teach you how to hear your excuses and lose weight anyway.

In fact, there’s a simple question we ask all the time to help us move from being stuck to taking action. I share it in Episode 350: When the Shit Hits the Fan. Listen now to hear my shitty story. 😆


Hi, I’m Corinne. After a lifetime of obesity, being bullied for being the fattest kid in the class, and losing and gaining weight like it wasn’t my job, I finally got my shit together and I lost 100 pounds. Each week, I’ll teach you no bullshit weight loss advice you can use to overcome your battle with weight.

I keep it simple. You’ll learn how to quit eating and thinking like an asshole. You stop that and weight loss becomes easy. My goal is to help you lose weight the way you want to live your life. If you are ready to figure out weight loss, then let’s go. Hello everybody. Welcome back to the podcast. We are going on a walk and I want to talk today about pivoting like a motherfucker when your day starts like ass.

Because mine literally started like ass today. And when I say ass. Let me just tell you. So, first and foremost, I didn’t sleep good last night. I was having a crazy dream. For some reason, I’m dreaming that I’m at a banquet where I’m getting an award, and I’m wearing a top, and my boobs fall out constantly.

And I keep telling everyone, it’s not a big deal. This happens all the time. So, if you’re like me, sometimes you have dreams You wake up and you’re just like, did I even really sleep? I literally woke up thinking, oh my God, I worked so hard in that dream. Like I was just sitting there wrestling with my boobs.

And if you, if you’ve ever seen me, I like, you know, I have implants. I’m very proud of them. I love them. And what was so funny was in the dream, I’m sitting there and I keep telling everybody, it’s not a big deal. I love my boobs. So, the good news is, is that while I was flashing everyone, I did have a very positive body image, uh, uh, going on.

So, and as you can tell, I never do a live or recording where trucks and lawnmowers. Don’t, uh, follow me along for it. So, hopefully you won’t be too distracted by the noise. But I really wanted to talk about this this morning because I get up at about 4 o’clock in the morning. I was going to get up early today anyway because I have a long day of meetings.

And I knew that I needed to get up early if I wanted to get my workout in, if I wanted to drink my coffee, if I wanted to get a little work done, all that stuff. So, at 4, I’ve got to pee. I’m like, Alright, we’re just getting up at this point. There’s no sense in trying to go back to sleep for 29 minutes. So, I, you know, start my morning.

I drink my coffee. My stomach is, like, a little growly. And I thought, you know what? I’m gonna have a banana this morning. And, you know, just make sure that I’m good and charged up for my workout and stuff. So, I’m rocking and rolling. I’m like, alright, time to go for my walk. So I go outside, I’m just walking and talking with my best friend on Marco Polo.

We check in every single day, and I’m telling her all the things I’m gonna get done. Tell her about my day full of meetings, that as soon as I get done talking to her, I’m gonna go in, and I’m gonna do my chest workout. All the things. Because my calls start at 8am. Well, it’s 7 o’clock, and I have plenty of time.

Well, towards the end of our call, I’m like, Huh. Stomach is, uh, feeling like I need to poop. Well, lo and behold, like a toddler, I shit my pants before I could even get into my house. Yes, I shit my pants. So I just want to tell everybody, number one, um, I have no shame in my game on talking about this kind of stuff.

I think a lot of women shit their pants in their adult life. Every time I talk about it inside the No B. S. membership, like, women in droves come out and say, yep, me too. Sometimes, when I go out for a walk, this just happens. I was so grateful to be wearing dark pants, because this has happened to me probably the last ten years.

Five or six times, at least. Where I get out, and I’m just going good on a walk, and next thing you know, it’s just urgent. And most of the time I have had on dark pants, that I can just throw away. Of course, today I had to throw away a really good pair of tights that I loved. But I am not one to try to save pants.

If I have shit in them, they now have memories attached. I just feel like that would be bad juju workout pants. So, I threw them away, but I have had times, I think there was one or, once or twice, walking through the neighborhood knowing I shit my pants and my pants are light colored. So, I’m very grateful that this morning, number one, that none of my neighbors were out because I was out early, and number two, that I did have my dark pants on.

I go in the house and I’m sitting there trying to figure out what do I do? Like, well, I knew I had to clean myself up. I had made a huge mess. Like, it was all over the bathroom. It stunk to kingdom come. So I’ve got my phone and I’m texting my husband upstairs. Because I’m like, I’m gonna have to take a shower.

Like, there’s no, like, baby wipe in this. It was a mess. So, I text my husband upstairs, and I was like, You won’t believe it. I shit myself. Go find bleach wipes. He brings down the bleach wipes. I’m getting in the shower. And I was like, I’ll clean it up, but take out the trash because my shit pants are in there.

And my husband is so funny. He just walks in, he’s like, okay. Like it’s, you know, not a big deal. I guess he’s used to it by this point. Well, I say all this, and I share my story with you for this reason. It, like, I kept thinking, alright, what can I do to pivot? Like, what can I get done? How can I re sequence my day?

And I want you to think about this. It is so easy when we struggle with our weight to think like this is what I think about in weight loss. So many of us really think life has to go perfect. Otherwise, we can’t lose weight, even in little cases like this. So many people would blow off workout. Blow off the day.

Think that, like, all hell’s broke loose. My day is screwed up. Now, I’m gonna tell you, my first thought was like, fuck me, are we kidding? Like, I was frustrated. I was sitting there going like, well, what am I gonna do? And my brain did offer me options of things like, well, just, you know, you won’t be able to work out today.

You won’t be able to do this. And trust me, if I was sick, I would take a day off. I took yesterday off. Not because I was sick, but because Mondays are the day I just go for a little quick walk and that’s it for me. But I’m not sick. I just ate a banana. It hit at the right, well, let’s put it this way, it hit at the wrong time.

It could have easily hit 45 seconds later and I would have been on a toilet. But, literally shit happens in life. And so, I had the idea of like, well, you might as well, or whatever. You have to pay attention. to your mind. When you are trying to lose weight, I want you to think about how often Are you allowing the very first thoughts, like, you might as well, uh, this screws that up, I can’t because, you need to pay attention to that.

Like, this week, I would encourage every listener to listen to how often Their brain tries to make up excuses as to why you can’t follow through. Why life is getting in your way. Because, here’s the simple fix. And this is why so many women lose weight once they become a No BS Weight Loss member. Because we work.

on this stuff. We don’t work on trying to eradicate our brain of excuses. We don’t sit there and feel sorry for ourselves because our brain offers up excuses. And we also don’t believe 90 percent of the horseshit that our brain says First, here’s what we do. We listen for that shit. And then just like this morning, I was like, No, I bet you there’s a way to save this day.

I bet you there are things I can do. I’m gonna move things around. I’m gonna see what I can get done. So, first and foremost, I was like, number one, this should really be a fucking podcast. This is one of those things where you should just go outside, take a walk, and talk to your people. Because they need to hear this message.

So, This podcast wouldn’t have even happened had I not shit my pants. Number two is my brain was thinking I can’t work out today, and I was like, bullshit. You just don’t like working out in the afternoons. It sucks, but you do have a 40 minute break later this afternoon. You won’t like it, probably. You’ll probably dread it.

But it ain’t because you can’t. So you just need to literally pull up your big girl pants and know we’re still gonna get it done today. It’s just not the ideal way, and it’s not what you were excited about, and it’s not what you were planned, what you planned. Y’all, that’s okay. Everything does not have to go right for you to lose weight.

So I am moving my chesticles workout until this afternoon. And I promise you, I won’t want to do it. I don’t like working out in the afternoons. It stinks. But you know what else stinks? Getting behind for the week, allowing myself to make bullshit excuses and follow them, setting myself up for the rest of my life to only do the things when it’s perfect.

That sucks. Like, when we want to talk about what really sucks in life, living a life of excuses that don’t get you to where you want to be, that actually sucks. So, we have had trucks, we have had cars, and now we have a military helicopter flying above. Amazing. So I want you all to think about this one simple thing.

How often am I letting the first thing I think run the show of my life? How often do I actually argue a little with myself that maybe I can do it? I just don’t want to do it that way. And I think that that is something that’s really important for people to admit. There is a difference between I can’t do it and I won’t do it.

If you’re a member of my No B. S. membership, you probably remember we had a big weekend where we talked all about our No B. S. excuses. I taught all of you how to listen for them, the most popular ones, which ones to actually dig into to see where they started in your life and which ones are just utter nonsense.

We talked about can’t versus won’t, and this is so important. So many people are living their life telling themselves lies. So often, we can do things, we just don’t want to do it in the moment. We can do things, we just won’t do it. Sometimes we can do things, and we honestly, we choose not to. And then sometimes in life, There are legit reasons why you can’t do something.

If the reason is legit, you won’t feel helpless. You will be forced to put yourself in a position to figure out something else. So it’s so important to listen to your excuses and to listen to those first thoughts that you have. So, here’s my thing for the day. Originally, I was, I got like a couple hours of work done before, I got some journaling done, I got my food plan made for the day, I did all the things, and then I go out for the walk, I crapped my pants.

Then I had a correction moment. And here’s what I’m not doing. I’m not going to go back and rewrite everything, but I am going to tell myself. There are things you can pivot to today. So I took my shower. Guess what? I was gonna take a shower later today. Now that time’s freed up. I’ve already had my shower for the day.

Next, I decided to do this podcast because I had 18 minutes before my first calls started. So instead of Sitting on the couch bemoaning and whining that my day is wasted. I made use of the 18 minutes. Now I’m gonna go home, start my day, do my calls. When my calls are over, I had a 40, like about a 40, 45 minute break before I have to go to the next thing.

I have a dinner I have to go to tonight. All kinds of stuff. That 45 minutes, that’s when I’ll do the chest workout and it only takes 30. I’ll get that done then, knowing I’m going to dread it and being prepared to talk myself into it, being prepared to tell myself. It doesn’t matter if you want to do it or not.

This is the time we have available. And I will drag my sorry ass in there. And just get started. I will use the trick of can I just. It’ll be, can you just get started. See what happens. If you really don’t like it. If you really don’t have the energy. If you really don’t have the time. Get what you can done.

I will tell you, once something gets in motion. It’s a lot easier to keep it in motion. You just gotta get it started. So I’ll keep the first step simple. Get your sorry ass in there and get going. Then I’ll put my makeup on and then I will continue the rest of the day. Like, this is what’s happening. And when I take authority over my day, guess what else doesn’t have to happen?

I don’t need to eat through it. Because I feel like I’m in control. But if I feel out of control, guess what? I’m probably going to want to eat and drink like shit tonight because I’m going out to a dinner. I don’t want to go to a dinner like that. I want to go to a dinner thinking I made the most of this day, even though it started out pretty crappy.

Literally. All right, y’all. That’s what I have for you today. This was a off the cuff, a little walk with Corinne. Hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you got a lot out of it. If you did, please follow me on Instagram, Corinne, C O R I N N E, underscore, Crabtree, C R A B T R E E, and if you see this post in your feed, leave me a comment if it helped.

Make sure you’re following, and the other thing I would love for all of you to do, is share this podcast. If it’s helping you in any way, the best way to spread the word about No BS and this weight loss program being different than anything else out there is when you tell other people about it. All right, y’all have a great week and I’ll see you next time.

Do you want to lose weight in 2024 and keep it off? Well, here’s something you need to know before you jump on the next diet bandwagon. 80 percent of people drop their New Year’s resolutions by the end of the second week of February. Even January 19th is dubbed Quitter’s Day for people who start diets.

Listen, I want to help you break free from diets that keep failing us. Let’s focus on losing weight in a way that works for our life. The key is simplicity, a plan that you can stick to even when life throws curveballs like a bad day, last minute dinner invites, or days where your self doubts are running on repeat in your head.

You see, diets fail because they don’t consider our real lives. If a diet can’t stand up to those tough moments, it’s not right for you. And that’s why I’ve created the How to Lose Weight in 2024 Workshop, where you’ll create a simple 12 week plan that will give you the exact steps to make weight loss easier.

Imagine starting 2024 eating food you love with control instead of impulse or abandonment. Truly believing this is your year to lose the weight for good. Adopting weight loss habits that don’t require an iron will to maintain. Setting up your kitchen and support system to help not screw up your food choices.

So join me in the How to Lose Weight in 2024 workshop. And in just 12 weeks, people will be asking you, how did you do it? You’ll be enjoying life, eating food you love, and feeling great, all while others are still chasing fad diets. In this workshop, you will set a 12 week goal that challenges you without freaking you out because it’s too big or too hard.

You’ll find your inner motivation that inspires you when you’re tired and stressed out. You’ll build a 12 week plan that’s easy to follow, that keeps you focused, and keeps you going when that initial excitement wears off. You’ll prep your mind, your environment, and your support system so you’re triggered to keep going instead of triggered to eat.

And you’ll learn how to track the right data so you can keep making improvements and losing weight. And guess what? You’ll get lifetime access to the workshop replays. So if you’ve got plans for December 30th, no worries. You can do the workshop anytime you want. It’s time to learn the secrets that traditional diet programs don’t teach you.

So what’s it going to be? Continue with the same old bullshit? Or join me for a new way to lose weight. A way that tackles all the reasons you’ve struggled with before. Decide now. Is 2024 going to be your year of change? I’m here to show you how to do it. Ready for a transformation. Head on over to no bs 2024 dash workshop for all the details and to register for the How to Lose Weight in 2024 Workshop.

That’s NOBS weight 2 0 2 4 dash workshop. See you there.
