Cravings, Desire, Pleasure, and Your Body: Alex Jamieson and Jena La Flamme on Glimpse TV

Screen Shot 2015-01-28 at 2.46.47 PMOver the summer I got two amazing books from two amazing girlfriends, both on nourishing and loving our bodies.

I wanted to have both of these fine ladies on Glimpse TV because their books both opened my mind to a whole new way of relating to my body and food that I’d never considered before.

On a spontaneous trip to New York City I asked them if they’d be willing to come on Glimpse TV together as the first ever duo on my show.

What truly struck me about both of their enthusiastic responses to the idea was the distinct lack of competition present.

Both of these gorgeous women launched books on the same topic in the same month in the same city with many contacts in common.

And yet, they were so excited to share the spotlight with one another to make sure as many women as possible could hear the important messages that our bodies know what they need and it’s up to us to become their loving caretakers.

We covered a lot of territory in this rich conversation. Watch the episode to find out:

  • Why how we talk about other women has so much to do with our relationship with ourselves
  • How to turn jealousy into inspiration
  • How to use the fact that we’re animals to our advantage
  • The importance of pleasure when it comes to our bodies, food, and weight loss
  • How to use our cravings as our guides instead of our foes
  • Why how you feel is critical to your digestion
  • The consequences of not making space and time for pleasure
  • Why trying to control your body will never work long term
  • Why cookbooks and romance novels are keeping the publishing industry afloat

Watch this episode of Glimpse TV with Alexandra Jamieson and Jena La Flamme below.

If you’ve ever struggled with your weight, with cravings, with food, or with your relationships with other women, you won’t want to miss this conversation. You’ll walk away with a few critical tools that will ease your journey dramatically. They certainly have mine.

What you’re truly seeking is not on Google.

I was feeling a little dried-up this fall. Part of it was seasonal, I’m sure, and part of it was finally downshifting after more than a year of full-on production (book launch, speaking tour, wedding and The Freedom Immersion.) With the exhale came the feeling that I’d lost touch with my creative essence. My joie…Continue Reading

We have a choice: freak out or flow.

I came downstairs to make my Bulletproof Coffee (only decaf these days), my new morning ritual, and Mike looked up at me in his adorable scruffiness as he said, “Want to hear the super exciting news now or later?” “Now!” I replied enthusiastically. “All 21 days of the Money Love Challenge emails went out this…Continue Reading

Why it’s sometimes great to follow.

I have earned 5 fitness certifications (and I’m signed up to get two more this year), yet when I go to the gym, I like someone else to tell me what to do. I could literally run a gym and teach all of the classes myself, but it feels better to follow someone else. When…Continue Reading

The Angels Told Me to Do It

This past March I had an angel reading with my friend Kyle Gray (whom I’d met earlier at a gig in Germany and instantly fallen in love with). In his absolutely adorable Scottish accent, Kyle told me some things I already knew and some things that were complete eye-openers. Kyle and I had only spent…Continue Reading

I don’t talk much about the fact that I used to have a professional Feng Shui consulting business, but I did. Helping people arrange their space to support fulfilling their dreams is something I adore doing. I stopped offering consultations to the public because I didn’t love the business model of trading hours for dollars.…Continue Reading

Let them do their thing and you do yours.

I’ve recently become obsessed with Buti Yoga. I literally cannot get enough. (If you haven’t tried it yet, get ready to sweat your buns off and tap into your womanpower all at the same time. If you’ve never done hip circles while holding Warrior II, you don’t know what you’re missing.) There’s one teacher whose…Continue Reading

We’re now in the sandwich space between Thanksgiving (in the US) and Christmas. Opportunities abound to spend time with loved ones. And opportunities abound for those very same ones we love to push our buttons. Unless you’re living on another planet where feathers never get ruffled by other people, especially the ones you share genetic…Continue Reading
