more rolfing

6th appointment on tuesday. She worked on my lower back and glutes. After she was done she had me stand up straight and fixed my posture. When I try to stand up straight I always push my shoulders back but in doing so also push my stomach out. I have to make sure that my butt stays 'tucked under' and my abs are engaged. When she had me standing in this position I looked sidelong into the mirror and OMG I looked like a different person. If I didn't see my head attached to the body I wouldn't think it was me, my torso looked long and lean (also due to the fact that I was engaging my abs, i.e. sucking in) but STILL.

Chest up, Butt tucked, Abs engaged!

I can't believe the difference the rolfing is making. On Tuesday I went for my 5th appointment and she worked on my rectus abdominus. I have so much more flexibility and it's easier to stand up straight. I used to squirm around and feel uncomfortable when sitting with a straight back and now I can sit with a long torso totally comfortably. I went to bikram this morning and feel awesome. No back pain at all since Tuesday!

Browsing around in sparkpeople among the'emotional eating' forums I found this author's spark team for sugar addicts. I wouldn't consider myself a sugar addict, at least compared to the stories I read in the forum, but certainly some of the patterns described apply to some extent to myslef... probably to everyone. In any case it was really interesting to see her philosophy concerning emotional eating. She engages (herself and her patients) in rituals/excercises to separate the emotional 'child mind' from the 'higher mind' in order to gain self control and objectivity. Fascinating stuff. She does hypnosis and wrote a book called 'Sugar...the Hidden Eating Disorder & How to Lick It'.

Here are some excerpts from her posts.

In response to a post about a binge:

"There is a part of you that is balking at the idea of discipline. You're not seeing it as a key to freedom, instead of a burden. In other words, you haven't fallen in love with the "right thing."

Everything we do for ourselves needs to be from our "higher self." If you believe in a Higher Power, then you can image your "higher self" as connected to your Higher Power. Your desire is to please that power, as well as to honor the same things. In this instance, that thing is Higher Health.

You began your day disconnected from your power. You know what to eat, but the child-emotions insisted on having their way. You need a good amount of food & we've discussed that.

Next, when you went to the store, you didn't stop the purchase. I'm wondering if you had "thoughts" before finding yourself standing in front of the pie. I tend to think you did......... you may not have been attentive to them, but I would be surprised if they weren't there. But let's suppose that they weren't there, or you were asleep for them.........the minute you found yourself in front of the pie, was the time when you needed to connect up to that higher part of yourself & then allowing that part to teach & remove the child. It takes a big of practice, but this is what is needed.

I ask my clients, students & myself to disallow any & all references including thoughts, etc. related to foods or beverages that are not part of our plan. I mentioned in an earlier post that I don't believe in abstinence, but deciding what gets purchased & then eaten & when. This is discipline & it is key to health & happiness."

There are religious overtones, a la 12-Step Program, which I guess is appropriate when dealing with addictions.

Another post:

"All it takes is for me to have an unwelcomed thought & I answer it with a special sound, rather like the Dog Whisperer uses.....schtt....! I know what it looks like, but it doesn't sound like that...lol, but it could. That sound trigger works very well & my child-self jumps to attention.

Decide what you want....set the mind programs......& practice. If you want to practice with some affirmations, go to a website called publishersmarketplace.com & click on my blog. It's called thoughtWARE."

I like all her references to the Dog Whisperer! LOL that just kills me.
