Coaching

SUMMARY
Habits = cue / trigger + action + reward
Form good habits – make them intrinsically rewarding
Break bad habits – make them intrinsically UNATTRACTIVE

Examples
Wine = poor sleep, feeling disconnected, hangovers, increased breast cancer from even 1 glass.

Sugar / Carbs = cancer cells can only feed on sugar, wrinkles, dementia / alzhiemers = type 3 diabetes, blindness, amputations

Smoking = money, time freedom, wrinkles, teeth stains, lung cancer.

Overeating = less enjoyment, poor sleep, bloating, scale up the next morning, NOT joyful relationship with food, wasting food (worse than throwing it in the trash), taking more than my body needs.

Snacking when cooking = not able to enjoy the meal as much. bad example for my boys, less space at dinner for my meal.

What’s one bad habit you would like to break?
How can you make it intrinsically unattractive and so you feel better off NOT doing that habit?

We sooth ourselves in healthy ways

SUMMARY
When we are in a stress cycle (fight or flight) awareness and acceptance of our feelings isn’t always enough. That’s when self soothing actions can help us return to calm and safety without turning to food.
SELF SOOTHING IDEAS
– Pause – remove yourself from the situation (if you can).
– Name the emotion – I’m feeling really angry/ scared / xxxx
– deep breath – or three deep breaths
– self compassion practice – Danielle Savoury – hand on heart – It’s OK, Of course you’re feeling xxxx, It’s totally normal
– walking outside
– walking in nature or looking at plants – forest bathing
– 4-7-8 breathing technique – oak mediation app or Dr Weil.
– Journalling – write it out what you’re feeling
– Guided mediation – loving kindness – oak app or headspace app or calm app.
– Hugging someone else or a pet or yourself.
– Affirmations – thinking positive thoughts – basic things ‘it’s OK’ ‘I can handle this’ ‘I always solve my problems’
– Write a gratitude list
– Distraction – scrolling / games (BUT only if there is a net negative)
– Making a pot of tea ritual / drinking tea
The tapping solution (EFT) + book
– Reading a book
– Crochet / knitting / colouring / crafts

We DON’T Eat Our Feelings

SUMMARY
Humans emotionally eat because we’re taught from birth that putting things in our mouth is soothing.
This is only a problem now that we have abundant access to food.
What to do instead – awareness + acceptance.
Awareness
Ask what am I feeling?
Name the feeling. eg. I feel good / bad / scared / angry etc.
Acceptance
Remember it’s fantastic that we have negative emotions because it provides contrast and guides us to take action.
When you name your emotion, add ‘and it’s OK’ to the thought. eg ‘I feel scared and it’s OK’.

RESOURCES

HOMEWORK
1. Schedule a regular time to do your evaluations.
2. Post your #evaluation in Circle as a new post.

We learn from our experiments

SUMMARY
Why evaluate
This is how we learn and improve faster and faster.
Notice Patterns – bring more awareness –
Recipe for success >> do more of what works and less of what doesn’t
Slowing down to speed up. eg riding a bike then slowing down to get in the car and program the gps.

Evaluation Process
i. What worked well. What am I proud of?
ii. What can I learn? (What didn’t go well)
iii. What will I do differently? Choose ONE THING to focus on.
iv. Support each other. Post a comment on some one else’s evaluation

HOMEWORK
1. Schedule a regular time to do your evaluations.
2. Post your #evaluation in Circle as a new post.

We Trust Our Hunger

SUMMARY
3 types Hunger – physical, psychological + emotional.
I see hunger as a useful tool. Not something I’m afraid of.
I love feeling physically hungry because things taste better.
“Hunger is a tasty sauce”– Glen Brennan
How to overcome the fear of hunger.
Step 1. Decide that you are ready to trust your hunger and trust yourself to know the difference between the different types.
Step 2. Practice with the Visualization Exercise (starts about 36 minutes into the call)
how they treat phobias + fears – just imagining.
>> close your eyes and imagine.
>>Bring to mind a time you felt hungry.
>>What were you feeling?
>>What type of hunger is this? physical / psychological / emotional
>>How can you be kind to this hunger? Pause? / Eat? / Feel? / Explore? / Distract?
Step 3. Experiment
Skip a meal (I recommend dinner) one night and see what happens.
Main mantra – this is an experiment / I’m not going to die.
Eat something if it gets too much.

HOMEWORK
1. Signup for Circle and message me when you’ve logged in.
2. Continue Daily Practice >> planning / visualizing / anticipating obstacles / evaluating
3. Evaluations – create a new post in Circle in the #evaluations space – no due date – find a time that suits you each week.

We Always Solve Our Problems
Part 4. – Planning Problems

COACHING: Supraja, Christiane

SUMMARY >> PLANNING PROBLEMS
1. Don’t believe it will work / not seeing the value.
SOLUTION >> We plan to increase awareness. Make better decisions with our prefrontal cortex. PRACTICE navigating life – overcoming obstacles.

2. Don’t have a specific time
SOLUTION >> Decide WHEN – this can be different on weekends

3. Not seeing it as fun
SOLUTION >> How can I make this ENJOYABLE?

4. Plans too rigid – ‘best behavior’ not REALISTIC. Equal swaps are fine.
SOLUTION >> MAke realistic plans and remember equal swaps are fine. IT’s more important to visualize your day than stick to the plan perfectly.

5. Limiting beliefs around planning – eg I’m not a planner / I don’t like being organized / my schedule is too variable / a naturally healthy person shouldn’t have to plan >> eg. concert pianist + practice
SOLUTION >> Self coach (see exercise below)

SELF COACHING EXERCISE
Ask yourself – why aren’t I planning? – then free write. Examine the thoughts that come up – which ones can you keep? which ones aren’t helping – can you let go? If not ask for coaching.

HOMEWORK:
Signup for the new Circle group and send me a direct 1:1 message to let me know when you’re in.

We Always Solve Our Problems
Part 3. – Thought Errors

COACHING: Sue, Anne, Lisa

SUMMARY >> THOUGHT ERROR EXAMPLES
I don’t know why the scale is up / I’m doing everything right…
I don’t know how…
I’m powerless over chocolate cake / I can’t resist…
I’ll never have this again (scarcity thinking)
It’s not working…
I can’t have cake / burgers / etc.
I need to do be on the live calls / do all the exercises / watch everything to get the result / make progress.

SOLUTION
First remind yourself these are just thoughts. They aren’t helping. What could you think instead?

YOU ARE EXACTLY WHERE YOU NEED TO BE.
You are NOT behind.
Coaching isn’t linear.
I can take just one idea to completely change everything.
It’s like Netflix – you aren’t supposed to consume everything.
TRUST THE PROCESS.
You are being guided even if it doesn’t feel like it.
Trust Yourself (I’m talking to you Lisa :)).

HOMEWORK:
Focus on the last week of the Enough Challenge.

Part 2. – When the Scale Isn’t Moving

COACHING: Joan.

SUMMARY
It’s always because of your thoughts + beliefs.
Self Coaching Tool.
1. Grab your journal or open a google doc or whatever you use.
2. Write ‘why aren’t I losing weight?’ at the top.
3. Then free write whatever comes to mind. And keep asking why until you get to the root cause(s). Trust yourself to uncover the reason. We are wiser than we give ourselves credit for.
4. Underline the thought(s) that spark the strongest emotion and examine them >> how do they make you feel? What action do you take when you’re feeling like that? Are they helping? Can I let this go? What could I think instead? Ask for coaching (in the twist coaching thread or direct message me) if this seems hard or you’re not sure.

Boring Reasons the Scale Isn’t Moving
1. Wrong type of food – too little protein or too many carbs.
2. Hormones.
3. Grazing / Not proper meals
4. Too many snacks
5. Overeating at meal times.
6. Wild weekends
7. Emotional / Stress Eating / Bingeing / Buffering
8. Timing >> eating too late
9. Sleep – see sleep article.
10. The scales are lying πŸ™‚

My weight DOES NOT EQUAL my self worth – I am already 100% WORTHY.

HOMEWORK:
1. Keep going with the Enough Challenge.
2. Post your Weekly Evaluation in Twist.

We Always Solve Our Problems
Part 1. – Cycling in and Out

COACHING: Lisa G, Sara, Nancy + Laureen.

SUMMARY: Solving the Problem of Cycling in and Out of Eating Well.
It’s never that you can’t do it, or you don’t have what it takes or anything that feels like shame.

Boring reason 1. – It’s not a problem
SOLUTION: Remind yourself Nothing has gone wrong. I am exactly where I need to be. What can I learn from this? Is there anything I need to adjust ?
Go back to planning every day.

Boring Reason 2. Daily planning is not an embedded habit yet
SOLUTION: Journal about daily planning. What thoughts / resistance is coming up? How can you get to a place where you’re excited about planning every day? Where you really believe you’re better off when you plan. Ask for coaching

Boring Reason 3. Subconscious Thoughts / Beliefs
SOLUTION / JOURNALING EXERCISE:
Answer this question…
On a scale of 1-10 how certain are you that you are a naturally healthy person today?
If it’s not a 10. Why?
Write whatever comes into your head for as long as you like.
Examine each of these thoughts.
Can you let them go?
Or do they feel really true? If they feel true reach out for coaching on them.

Boring Reason 4. You don’t want to give up your old self concept / Fear of change / Something to lose.
SOLUTION: Make peace with your old identity – let her know she can still be part of you.
She’s just not going to get to make decisions any more.
Watch this video on the letting go process.
If you sense there is fear around this – reach out for coaching.

Boring Reason 5. Too much restriction.
SOLUTION: Make sure your plans reflect what you truly WANT to eat.
Plan some more treats / indulgences – what do you truly desire?
What are you afraid of?
Do an experiment.
Could it be possible that it’s better when I have indulgences in my life?
Reach out for coaching.

We Can Handle Any Emotion

SUMMARY:
HOW TO HANDLE EMOTIONAL EATING
We want to feel the feelings instead of eating over them.
MY ‘5A’ METHOD
1. Awareness
Often we go unconscious when we emotionally eat.
What am I feeling now?
Check in during the day at random times
Check in before you eat or while you are eating.
2. Acceptance
It’s OK to feel _____ bad / angry / sad / scared / anxious
Get curious and try to name the emotion.
3. Allowance
I’m doing the best I can – compassion
I can handle this _______ anger / fear / anxiety / discomfort
4. Ask Why?
What am I thinking that is driving this emotion?
Get curious.
Ask why a few times to get to the root.
5. Action
Decide what you want to do next…
Eat more?
Keep allowing / experiencing the feeling?
Find a new thought to drive a different emotion?
Take a different action? eg other self soothing activity that doesn’t have a net negative outcome.
