HELP Episode 8: Mind Games

November and Thanksgiving have come and gone!  Can you believe it?  Where did the time go?  We had a lot of stuff going on in November including the election, Thanksgiving and some major life events.  After taking the month of November off, I am back for a “Just Tom” Healthy Lifestyle Podcast.  I have to admit that we all play mind games with the holidays, and as I post this podcast, I can probably record a Part 2 to this podcast for surviving the madness and family mind games that rear their heads during the holidays.



I discussed the following topics in this episode:

  • November Madness in the World
  • Mind Games for Dealing with Chaos
  • Update about Drew Sample
  • Thanksgiving Reflections
    • Visiting a Homestead
    • Spending Time with Family and Relatives
    • Eating and Drinking During the Holidays
  • New Plan and Getting Back to the Gym and Pool


During the podcast, I discussed a few different sites, podcasts, videos and blogs.  The following is a list of those links:.

Rate on iTunes

We really need some more ratings from listeners, so please rate and review the Podcast.  Ratings and reviews help us grow the podcast and the blog.  As you know, people look at reviews before they listen.  No reviews or poor reviews mean that no one cares to listen or rate the podcast.  You don’t need to write a book or write anything.  Just give a few stars (not going to lie: I want five stars) for the Podcast.
