Hi, I’m Alex!

If you need a little help to start playing by your own rules, there’s a few ways we can work together more closely.

Put Yourself on the List on The Cravings Whisperer with Alexandra Jamieson

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

Why is it so hard for us to do nice things for ourselves?

Today I’m talking about exactly that with Kelly. She is so focused on taking care of her kiddos that afternoon cravings sneak up on her, and she doesn’t know where they’re coming from! I’ll give you a hint – she wasn’t putting herself or her needs on the list.

The grocery list OR the proverbial big life list!

We have to make sure we are taking care of ourselves, crave bears. Not only will it help us take care of others, but more importantly it will make us happier and healthier. And who can say no to that?
