85 Journal Your Journey with Katie Dalebout

Alexandra-Jamieson-Featured-Art-The-Crave-Cast-Katie Dalebout-Ep85

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

Welcome my Clan of the Crave Bears! I know your life is incredibly busy, so it means so much that you are spending this time with me.

Today we are going to be talking about Katie Dalebout’s new book, Let It Out – A Journal Through Journaling. One of the things we have talked so much about is a gratitude practice. Having a gratitude practice is a strength and it allows you to open up your mind to hope, positive thoughts, and learning.

Although I believe in a gratitude practice and I even have a gratitude jar in my kitchen, I know that there can be a downside to gratitude. Negativity bias is something we will talk about and how it can actually benefit us in some ways, but it can also rule us. A gratitude practice can counteract your negativity bias.

Gratitude is not a panacea – it’s not a cure all. We don’t want to overdose on gratitude. Writing down 10 gratitudes a day might make you feel like you failed if you can’t come up with 10. There is no such thing as “more is better” in the gratitude department. So, set realistic goals for your gratitude.

You may not realize that you can also fail to recognize your own role in your success. Thanking everyone else, while downplaying your own contribution isn’t great for your self-esteem. So pick one day and time each week that you will journal your gratitude. Write down 3 things you are grateful for, AND write down YOUR contribution to that success. It isn’t luck, and it isn’t being in the right place at the right time. Recognize your own awesomeness!

Katie Dalebout is an author, coach and podcaster and she has a lot of insight into self-acceptance and journaling.  I’m so excited to have her on the show today. I had to reach out to her when my family was having some difficult times these last few weeks with Bob’s back surgery, and she gave me some journaling advice. I have to say that it has helped!

“By journaling I can see things on a page and sort through the messages.” Katie Dalebout (Click to Tweet)

 

Show Notes:

  • How Katie began journaling
  • Journaling can help you sort out your own messages from societies messages
  • The self-awareness that Katie found through journaling
  • How journaling can help with your meditation practice
  • How you can heal your thoughts by facing your thoughts
  • How expressive writing can be useful to us

“When you ask a good question, your intuition will give a good answer.” Katie Dalebout (Click to Tweet)

  • Why we have so much resistance to facing our feelings
  • How you can write to the higher part of yourself, your intuition
  • Ways to learn from your journaling
  • Journaling helps the things you are ready to let go of
  • How to buy a journal – what kind, what brand, etc.
  •  can see emotion when you write our something on paper

“When you are honest with yourself, you can be honest with others.” Katie Dalebout (Click to Tweet)

  • You may only want to write pretty things in a pretty journal
  • A yellow legal pad will give you the ability to be as raw and real as you need to be
  • Should you keep your old journals?

“Journaling is a conversation with your higher self.” Alexandra Jamieson (Click to Tweet)

Alexandra-Jamieson-Featured-Art-The-Crave-Cast-Amie-Valpone-Ep84

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

Welcome back my Clan of the Crave Bears! If you’ve been listening lately, you know that my sweet husband Bob has had an exploded disc in his back and he has been in excruciating pain the last several weeks. He’s been struggling with this and finally had surgery on Monday. The Doctor expects him to make a full recovery. I’ve learned how difficult the role of a caregiver is. Sometimes as ladies, we take on so much in the role of a caretaker and it takes a toll on us too. So, it’s important to remember that you need to keep your own self-care rituals intact.

I’ve made a decision that’s a pretty big deal to me. Based on an email I received from a member of my Facebook group, I have decided to offer a secret tool to help you achieve all your food goals. I am allowing 25 women to join the Cravings Cleanse and I will be your personal coach. I will be helping you with the tools you need to finish the program. You whole life can change when you cleanse your body and reduce inflammation. I will close registration after the next 25 women join. Go to www.cravingscleanse.com and get in before the registration closes. You will get clear, clean and energized.

Today’s guest is Amie Valpone and she has a new book called Eating Clean and she is also the founder of the TheHealthyApple.com. Amie has the story that a lot of us have. She’s had a lot of messes in her life and she has finally been able to turn the corner on her medical issues and live a happy and fulfilled life. It wasn’t easy, but she had to overhaul her entire relationship with food.

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast

Hello my Clan of the Crave Bears! Can you believe we are coming up on a year and a half in the podcast? Time has flown. To give you an update if you’ve been listening, my main squeeze Bob is having spinal surgery next week. He’s been having a hard time, so I’ll be glad for him to get back to feeling better. He’s been in pain for so long, and not knowing what is wrong, and it’s been a really hard time for all of us. Being a care taker is hard, and these hard times are when it’s easy to get out of the good habits you’ve created.

One of my toxic habits…….sugar, has been an indulgence for my emotional cravings lately. I’m going to be getting off sugar soon, and then I will eventually bring it back in healthy doses.


 

Check out my favorite Cravings Cleanse Spiced Rice Pudding:

  • 2 c. cooked rice
  • 2 c. unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 1/4 c. organic raisins
  • 1 to 2 t. cinnamon
  • 1 to 2 t. cardamom
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 5 drops liquid Stevia extract

Cook in a pot over medium heat. Simmer then reduce to low for 5 minutes. Cover and let the liquids absorb into the rice. Once liquid is absorbed, dig in.

79 Master Your Inner Mean Girl with Melissa Ambrosini

Alexandra-Jamieson-Melissa-Ambrosini-Featured-Art-The-Crave-Cast

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

Welcome back my Clan of the Crave Bears! Today I will be interviewing Melissa Ambrosini about her new book called “Mastering your Mean Girl: The No-BS Guide to Silencing your Inner Critic and Becoming Wildly Wealthy, Fabulously Healthy and Bursting with Love”.

Before we talk about how we beat ourselves up, I want to share a little about our inner mean girl and how it comes out in girl-on-girl and woman-on-woman bullying. I see it a lot in the media and on social media, and talking with Melissa about how we beat ourselves up, I think it speaks volumes about our culture and how we are hard on other women.

Girls bully differently than boys. Generally, you would think that bullying is more physical, but girls are much more emotional and strategic about it. They can be quietly kind of vicious. We have this idea that bullies come from abuse or bad homes or have low self-esteem but really bullies have a superior sense of self and they are highly confident in their abilities. So how can we help our kids to not become bullies or stand up against bullies? Staying quiet and being complacent and not saying anything is giving the bully its staying power.

Many people believe that if they step up and confront a bully they will become a target. Bullies don’t like to be confronted. Bullies are about control and stepping in and confronting them it threatens their sense of power. You can try and defuse a bully by trying to joke about something to get the bully’s mind on something else or just act bored. These acts can defuse a bully without being confrontational.

I would love to hear your experiences with bullying and how a mean girl experience affected you or someone you love. You can join our FREE Facebook group at bit.ly/wfdgroup or you can tweet or Instagram me @deliciousalex. Share with us your story, what worked for you, how you stood up to a bully or how it affected you or what you are trying to heal from. This issue is big!

Author, speaker, Australian self-empowerment coach, Melissa Ambrosini believes it is time to silence our inner mean girls. She suffered herself with eating disorders, addiction and relationships she thought she could never leave Melissa’s body broke down. She came out on the other side with a mission to show other young women how to conquer that inner mean girl as she did herself.

Don’t forget to check out my FREE 3 part series called Cure Your Cravings: 5 Ways to Feel Peace and Energy in Your Body Once and For All. It will be launching on March 21st. Go sign up at alexandrajamieson.com/videoseries and you will be signed up to have these videos sent straight to your inbox. I really break down on how to eat and how to change your mindset. See you there!

78 How Women Can Play Big + Why It’s So Hard, with Tara Mohr

Alexandra-Jamieson-Tara-Mohr-Featured-Art-The-Crave-Cast

 

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

Hello my clan of the crave bears! Welcome back! On today’s show we are going to be talking about what our cravings are for speaking our truth. Our desires for sharing our big ideas and how challenging it is, especially for women. I know we got some cool dudes that listen to the show but this really speaks to the female issue of playing small.

The next Cravings Cleanse is going to start on April 14th. I really want you all to be aware of it. I’m putting out a three-part video training series that you can sign up for. I will talk more about this next week. Make sure you are on my newsletter list at alexjamieson.com so that you get the announcement when this video training series is coming out. It’s going to be so awesome! I was talking to one of my cravings cleanse members from this last craving cleanse and she is having these feelings of overwhelm, like she has no time for herself. I told her that she needs me time like she needs air! But when you make this stand for me time you will be a better woman. And this ties in with the show today with Tara Mohr. We women are afraid to speak up and say what we need. We are so use to being that person that everyone else needs. It’s so hard especially as women which is why I wanted to have Tara Mohr on the show.

Tara Mohr’s new book “Playing Big” is so good. I love this book! She is an expert on women’s leadership and well-being. She helps women play bigger in sharing their voice and bringing forward their ideas into work and into life. So the great thing about Tara Mohr is that I loved this interview so much and I loved her book so much that I said to her that I would love to give a free copy of her book to all my swag bag winners this year.

Hello my Clan of the Crave Bears! It’s March 2016! Can you believe it?! I just got back from a “mom-cation”! I really needed to unplug. I went camping for a week in Joshua woods in California.
