Evesdropping| More| Honesty| Really!

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false]Eve has been struggling with her weight for years so it makes perfect sense that actually getting to the bottom if it all takes more than one week! Last week her defensiveness with the weigh in staff member came from her feelings about all this change. A way to stand up for herself, I suppose. It was not so surprising that the following week there was no criticism for what was in her food journal even though it wasn’t ... Read more

Evesdropping #8 | Honesty | Week!

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false]After being honest with me last week about her REAL "closet eating" issues, today we find out how she worked through her week with food. The first thing Eve told me was that she wrote down everything, not leaving one morsel out! As she has been weighing is at a weight loss clinic for several months, she went in with all of it in hand. Eve had a day where she needed a fix and ate a box of chocolates ... Read more

Evesdropping #7 |Perfectionism| and the |closet eater

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false]Last week Eve was working on not criticizing her husband as a driver or anything else. This has been a challenge, but she catches herself and sometimes even before it leaves her lips! This is progress for Eve and she is moving forward in other areas of her life. Eve brought up guilt today and went on to talk about how she was not doing as well as she thought she could. Eve has been a “closet eater” all her ... Read more

Evesdropping #6| Don’t| criticize|, don’t |defend!

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] Relationships are always going to be something to work on for most of us, until we accept that others are not us. They don’t completely think like us, act like us, respond like us or much else actually as they are not us. Even when you understand this and are good at acceptance I suspect that occasionally you slip (like I do). Maybe you need a refresher course of action. Adam and Eve are a terrific couple who have ...

Evesdropping #5 |How are your |relationships?

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false]Last week Eve spoke of “envy” of what others had that she didn’t and how it made her feel. This week’s session she started out stating how grateful she was with what she did have. Eve is becoming more of who she is and less of what others may have wanted her to be or her past illusion of herself. “Envy is a symptom of lack of appreciation of our own uniqueness and self worth. Each of us has ... Read more

Evesdropping #4| “Envy| is the art of… “

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] “Envy is the art of counting the other fellows blessings instead of our own.” Harold Coffin Eve started off the session with an important statement for her. “I have wasted too much time crying over things that I wouldn’t have done different! I am good the way I am.” After our last session I gave Eve a cd of music. On it are all female vocalists with some very powerful songs. A couple of them had lyrics that really ... Read more

Evesdropping #3 |Do you know what you are not |accepting?

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] Last week Eve was working on her issues with “shoulding” all over herself. I am please to say that it seems she is right on top of it. I haven’t heard "should" once in our whole week of conversations and emails. She says she hardly catches herself saying it and corrects it immediately with an appropriate decisive statement. Congratulations, Eve! This week Eve is talking about acceptance. I asked what kinds of things she had issues accepting.  Things at the ... Read more

Evesdropping #2 | “Eve has been |shoulding| all over herself!”

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] You met Eve last week in "Eve" a REAL client!  Eve had come a long way in her quest for happiness and value in her first coaching session. Her next session began with thoughts about feeling guilty. Eve felt guilty about so many things. Guilt about not being the best mom,  not doing enough of ‘this’ and even doing too much of ‘that’ at times…I know that you get what I am talking about. Some of you have ... Read more

Evesdropping | “Eve” a REAL client!

     [tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] A client of mine suggested that some people might like to peek into the lives of others being coached. You may want to see how coaching works, like being a welcome voyeur. An eavesdropper! Clients that have offered to let me write about their sessions in this blog. You may not have heard of Life Coaching or have but don't get it. Or maybe you do but aren't sure if it's for you or a ton of other ... Read more
