Beating Temptation

Change is hard because we give in to temptation. Yup. Some things are INCREDIBLY tempting to us – each of us will have a different one, but the effect is the same: We career off towards the tempting thing, the notion of our goal powerless to stop us… Luckily, studying the Marshmallow Kids has unearthed […]

There’s 2 sides to emotional eating. Why do we always tackle the wrong one?

It was Monday morning. I had spent Sunday as a perfect example of what NOT to do in regards to food. It involved icecream, chocolate and garlic bread – all choices, rather than cravings that couldn’t be ignored, but nevertheless, these were not good choices. Predictably I woke up the next day with a headache […]

Do you feed or fight your dragons?

Dragons. We all face them, on a daily basis. They may not be green and fiery (or red and fluffy), but they’re there. Your own brain contains dragons. Your social circles can unleash a dragon or two.

Whoever you want to be – you already are!

I read something this week that really made me think. This: whoever you want to be – that’s who you really are.  Anytime you spend not being that person is gremlins (negative self talk, fear, doubt etc) getting the better of you. If you want to be compassionate, brave, happy, etc – that’s the essence […]

Is your brain making you do it?

Want to know something really freaky about your brain? It operates a reward system.  But unlike a coffee shop version, where you get a free cup of stuff when you’ve bought 8, our version can be a bit of a saboteur, and it’s one key reason why we often end up getting run over by […]

Workout of the Week – Dumbbell, Advanced

A more challenging workout, using dumbbells only. The heavier your dumbbells, the fitter you’ll need to be! Always make sure though, that your dumbbells aren’t so heavy that you lose your form – performing the exercises with good technique is the most important thing. Enjoy!

A Christmas without the guilt – sounds good right?

Christmas can a challenging time for the wellbeing warrior.  It is a time when the wellbeing warrior can wobble and waver.  When we are assaulted on every side by mince pies, chocolate logs, mulled wine and roast potatoes.  We know we shouldn’t indulge, but…this kind of food festivity only comes but once a year!  You […]

Why do you eat?

Cravings are interesting, challenging things. We can crave certain foods because our blood sugar has dropped, as we saw last week. We can crave certain foods because our brain chemistry is out of whack – low serotonin levels will have you seeking salty carbohydrates, for instance. But possibly the most difficult-to-crack causes of cravings are […]
