weight-loss-challenge-the-power-of-habit-and-cortisol

Hiya Friends!

These last two weeks have been a mix of many things and I am still doing this challenge and learning more things about how I understand food.

One of the things I am noticing after 4 weeks doing this challenge is that the ‘crazy need for really rich foods’ is fading away. By this, I don’t mean that I don’t ever think about it but that I don’t have it in my mind 24/7 and that it is becoming increasingly easier to just say NO. I read a book a long time ago about the power of habit and I guess this has  a lot to do with it. I have also realized how big is the role of stress in any diet.

super-tips-for-your-barcelona-trip

Hiya!

This post is the continuation of the blog post I wrote last week with my Bucket list for Barcelona. I wanted to write another post with  a follow up on that one with some tips, things that i would have done differently (if I knew!!), the things that one learns when going to the city itself.

First of all, please do take a look at this beautiful video of Barcelona from the website www.travelaway.me as it will blow your mind. I wish I found this video before going to Barcelona! It is such an impressive video!!

Since this weekend I am going to Barcelona to see The Cure  (my favorite band!!!)  I found myself today looking for things to see in this great city. I was there only once many years ago and I remember I loved it even though  I didn’t have time to see everything I wanted to see.

So I am preparing a list of the things I must see, but with not many things as I honestly don’t like to pack my trips with a thousand visits. I prefer to stroll and take in the general atmosphere of the city.

So the way I organize myself for this is the following:

Hi, Friends!

For the last few days,  we have had in Dublin really cold temperatures compared to what we have been having for the last few months. It is normal considering we are approaching December but somehow you get used to the weather being mild here.

As the days get colder, it is good to remember the things that one like to do when it is this cold that you can’t do in any other time of the year, this way you make sure you are making the most of it.

Hi Friends!

I wanted to write a post about this almost since I moved to Dublin and noticed some fantastic street art almost everywhere I went. For those of you that have never been in Dublin, this city is divided by a river, the Liffey, and everything above the river is called Dublin north (All odd numbers for the district code like Dublin 1, 3, 5, 7…) and everything below the river, Dublin south (All pair numbers for the district code like Dublin 2, 4, 6 …)

Dublin South is full of hip places and bars and it is usually more wealthy in comparison with the north of the city. There are lots of beautiful graffitis in the Dublin south. But that will be the topic of another post !

Some time ago I went on a graffiti tour in North Dublin and what we saw was truly fantastic! The graffitis on this post were all seen in the north of the city! Smithfield, Cabra, various points in the north and Jervis area.

Hiya and Happy Saturday!

It has been a really busy week where I have finally published other two websites part of my overall project for the year. One is a brand new art website more in line with what I want to do in the near future, where I would also like to include photography and design in my life! Take a peek at www.elenasorianoart.com and let me know what you think! And the other website I published is more like a display of the various hats that I wear in my life in an attempt to wrap them up in a nice pretty showcase. Check it out at www.lnasoriano.com

TURNING PRO BY STEVEN PRESSFIELD

This is a funny moment in my life, and like it happens with all these weird moments  you stumble upon some amazing books that feel like they REALLY speak directly to your soul. This is the case with a book I have recently read: ”Turning Pro”  by Steven Pressfield.
