74. Are Your Food Cravings Controlling You?
Does this title speak to you? This may be a good intro for the summer as we get caught up in those dieting thoughts that we talked about last week, when we start thinking about swimsuit/summer clothes.
This is an important topic and I think it is becoming a bit trendy, hot in marketing to get you pulled into certain diets. Marketing a diet to be solution to help you with these cravings and state "try this hunger suppressant to delete those cravings," it sounds good, right?
In this episode I provide 7 Tips to Help You Overcome Strong Food Cravings.
I have looked at a couple of studies that discuss food cravings, here is the one I mentioned in the episode: The Psychology of Food Cravings: the Role of Food Deprivation
73. 5 Ways to Get Beach Body Ready for the Summer (I might surprise you with these simple tips!)
When you live in the Midwest and seasons changes, clothing changes. For me, there is something about that first time I put on shorts, I have so many feelings connected with it and usually not too excited. My kids will tell me, “Gosh, Mom your legs are really white.”
I will be honest, for me in the past, my legs have always been my trouble area, I have always kid them, tried to cover them up and just not feeling great about my body in the summer.
I remember in my early 20's I would wear jeans in extreme heat and that is just the way it was, no thoughts about wearing shorts or wearing a swimsuit in the summer.
And now, hitting the 40 mark, I realize who cares. I am going to buy comfy shorts that make me feel good inside and out.
As I am learning and teaching more about intuitive eating, mindful practices for the body and embracing body acceptance, there is so much more about yourself than how you look.
In this episode I discuss 5 ways you can feel better in your current body with simple tips for you enjoy the summer even more!

71. Why Do I Sabotage My Diet?
In the path to making peace with food, sometimes our old eating habits/thoughts return, and you may blame yourself for "falling off track, again!"
You feel discouraged and tell yourself, I have no will power to eat better or stick to a diet, I am such a failure!
You become frustrated and the cycle continues, upset you can’t lose weight, mad at yourself for screwing up AGAIN, disappointed in yourself for not sticking to the plan while your friend is crushing it, and you just feel awful about yourself.
It may be the sabotage syndrome. When we define sabotage, it means to destroy. When we use this word connected to our diet, it may mean a deliberate or unconscious thought or feeling that destroys an attempt to achieve your wellness goals.
Your mindset can be your biggest enemy, as that negativity sets in, you are stuck in this cycle of trying, failing, and blaming.
The message you give yourself through your conscious and unconscious thoughts have so much power to affect your behaviors, feelings and success.
I talk about the four A's to help you overcome the hiccups in your mindset.
