Can you wait 10 minutes?
When was the Last time YOU had a craving?
First off, a craving is an intense desire and/or wanting for something.
We all have cravings. The cool thing about cravings is that after about 10 minutes, the craving goes away. The down side of this is that 10 minutes seems like eternity when all you really want is that chocolate bar!
Having an intense Craving pop up out of no where and strong, isn’t about the food, it’s about another need or emotion that isn’t being met. Alexandra Jamieson talks more about that in her AMAZING book: Women, Food & Desire.
So the question really is.. what do you really want? What is it, about the food you are craving, what need will giving into this craving REALLY satisfy?
We all have basic needs, wants and desires. When these basic needs aren’t being met, we numb with food, skin picking, alcohol, pills, or any other substance or destructive behavior. What is it that you really want? Perhaps sleep or rest, feelings of peace and calmness, fun or excitement, feel good”, companionship, love..

Don’t Quit! You got this:)
It’s Almost 3 weeks in the New Year 2015! HOLY MOILY! Studies show, right about now…most people start to lose the momentum on their new goals, desires and lifestyle shifts and start to revert back to their old UNDESIRED thoughts, habits and behaviors.
It’s imperative to know that consistency is key to SUCCESS. To get from where you are now, to where you want to be, you can’t be “afraid to fail.”
One of my favorite questions of all time:
*When you fail, you start to get more clear on what doesn’t work for you. Once you have clarity on what doesn’t work, you have CERTAINTY on what does work.
*It’s also super important you a CLEAR understanding as to why you set your 2015 NEW YEAR goals in the first place? And why are these goals important to you?
This is what helps any successful person fall down and get right back up. I know you got this;) Because I believe in your success.
Here’s to 2015! No Holding Back!
