The Girlfriend Doctor w/ Dr. Anna Cabeca

Sep 1, 2019

Your physical appearance is important to you; it’s something we all take pride in. But I think it’s more important that our body is a direct reflection of how we treat ourselves on the inside. Today’s guest, Bree Argetsinger, also known as The Betty Rocker, is all about practicing self-love from the inside out.

Bree is a certified Exercise Coach, certified to help you realign your body through manual therapy, and ISSA (International Sports Sciences Association) certified fitness nutrition practitioner. But more than this, she’s an incredibly motivating woman who has been through it all. When Bree was in her early 30s, she burned out her adrenal glands and has spent years learning how to correct them.

The Betty Rocker promotes a natural approach to diet, one that includes plenty of whole foods that will help you feel fuller for longer. It can be overwhelming when faced with so many good choices, and many women struggle with this. But through making those healthy food choices and realigning our bodies through corrective exercise, we are well on our way to a better body. Bree actually promotes sitting on the floor while working… or more specifically, working from a variety of positions when you can. We’re not meant to stay still all day! 

As a survivor of assault, Bree understands what it’s like to work through these emotions, which are especially prevalent during perimenopause. Women need to build a strong community around them to help through any and all the emotions that come up during these tough periods of our lives. 

Bree explains what types of exercise we should be doing every day. And she gives us some special insight into what the perfect burpee should look like - spoilers: I’ve been upping my burpee game based on it. If you’ve been seeking preventative healthcare, such as chiropractic or physio, it’s probably not enough. You should also be addressing the muscular movement patterns and improving your bone strength and health.

Lastly, self-care, self-love, and embracing “flawsome” is a huge part of Bree’s message and training. It’s so important for all aspects of our health to love ourselves and take good care of our mind, body, and soul.

Have you ever felt paralyzed by all the good choices you can make? Do you know how to handle previous emotional or physical trauma? What type of exercise really gets you going?

“I think it’s very natural, as women and men, to take pride in our appearance. And so, I don’t think it’s wrong to care about your ascetics at all. I think that how we look and feel is a by-product of how we treat ourselves.” (17:12)

“Consistency matters. If you don’t take action, something small, each day, it makes a difference.” (18:39)

“Working on our physical body is a gateway to working on our mind, our spirit, all of the things.” (23:05)

“The body doesn’t exist in a vacuum. You can’t look at one organ and say that everything [wrong] is because of this organ, you can’t look at one system of the body and think that it doesn’t affect all the other systems.” (41:09)

“Everything is connected. You need to get to the root cause of what’s causing the weight gain, what’s causing the issues. Find a way to love yourself so that you can think about things from an empowered place. You can help uplift the people around you. It’s pretty much everything. You have to be willing to be honest with yourself if you’re going to be asking people to be honest with themselves.” (41:37)

“I’m going to create my own version of awesome and I’m gonna represent it, and I’m gonna love myself as hard and as fiercely as I love my best friends.” (45:56)
