Hello you,

Thanks for clicking on the link and being curious about my Monday's musings.

We have had four weeks about Food Cravings and by now, I am sure you have got the message! I am re-running Body Magic starting at the end of May and if you want to sign up here is the link www.baya.ie/BodyMagic

But this is not what I want to talk about this morning. This morning, I want to tell you about an Experiment I am involved in.

A really good friend of mine has started this 30 Days Experiment on Fa…

CRUSH YOUR CRAVINGS PART 4

Dear Reader,

 

A bit more on Food addiction and cravings. It is a terrible thing that people who are addicted to food, like I am, do not get a look in really.

We are told to pull ourselves together, to use our willpower. We are told that we are just lazy and to make an effort.

It is all our fault, somehow.

There is no help out there apart from diets and deprivation.

The problem with all of that is that will power does not work, never has and never will.

Do you know why?

Because research …

Good news?

Dear Reader,

Have you been listening to the news, lately?

We should call them The Bad News because, lets face it, it all about whatever is wrong on this world and frankly, there is so much of it I want to hide under my bed most mornings!

In the olden days, at the end of the BBC News, there was always some silly item of Good News to somehow leave you with a bit of a smile. Some giraffe had given birth or someone had done something nice.

All gone now.

So, what to do?

I mean, what to do if th…

CRUSH YOUR CRAVINGS PART 3

Dear Reader,

How are you finding the series of blog posts of Food Cravings?

Did I tell you that it is because I knew about the feelings that made me overeat that I started following my own Body Magic Program again in March 2020?

As the world was locking itself up and people were terrified of all sorts of horrible things happening to their families, I thought to myself.


What do I do when I feel anxious/sad/angry?

 

I eat too much!

Do I want to put on weight again? NO!


So, I started us…

CRUSH YOUR CRAVINGS PART 2

Dear Reader,

 

I hope you enjoyed Part 1 of Crush your Cravings!

My craving is Cheese, preferably French with may be some sourdough bread! I could eat tons of the stuff if I am upset about something. During my work with EFT Tapping and Cravings, I realized something important. I eat too much of the craved food when I feel out of sorts.

 

So today, we are going to look at feelings.

 

Brene Brown will disagree with me but for the sake of simplicity (this is only a one page blog), there are …

I SHALL NOT FEED YOU!

Dear Reader,

I wonder how you are feeling right now?

I know I am a bit nosy but I thought I would ask. Because frankly things are really really weird, I fear.

Two years ago, our world ended as the Pandemic caused us to become prisoners in our own homes for months on end. No-one seems to be marking this moment.

I am not quite sure that my resilience to stress has recovered.

And now, what with the war in Europe...

Anxiety is everywhere.

Every single person I talk to, every single client, is…

SCOTLAND

Dear Reader,

After last Monday's ceremony and tapping session, something rather wonderful happened to me.

I had been listening to calming music in the morning, soothing type of stuff, I thought it was helping me feel more together and centered.

This morning, totally unexpectedly, I suddenly looked down my Spotify list and clicked on my favorite Scottish Band, Wolfstone and the sounds of the bagpipes filled my kitchen with joy. Wolfstone is Scottish Rock music and the next thing I knew, there …

SPRING HAS SPRUNG

Dear Reader,

Before I forget, I have a favor to ask. if you like my musings, would you scroll down to the bottom of the page and sign up for the blog updates? It would help with my new plans and would keep you in the loop. I promise I won't bombard you with emails. I hate that.

Back to the matter at hand.

Have you noticed how we seem to not be able to imagine a future, an alternative to the life we lead these days?

How our deepest desire is to return to "normal", which means basically return…
