It’s time to focus on improving your health from the inside out

7th September 2020

IT feels like the last six months have been all over the place and the focus has been on everything and everybody else rather than our own health.  So let’s press the reset button in our minds and head for success right now!

Most of us have been out of our usual routine, with some bad habits creeping back in again. These habits are very sneaky and they find ways to get back into your life when you least expect them to!

This four-week Reset For Success Challenge is all about your health and wellbeing. It’s about your mindset, your food and your exercise working together. And it’s crucially important to achieve consistency over the next 28 days.

So make the focus of your goal about improving your health from the inside out. When you think about things differently it will bypass all the insecurities about what the scales say.

For so many people the obstacle to lasting weight loss IS the scales. So if this is you, for the next four weeks take the focus off the scales and put it on to your health and your daily routine.

Click below to watch the video (and while you’re on my YouTube channel please hit the Like, Share and Subscribe buttons so I can spread the word to others!):

The important points to remember:

*  This is all about motivation, intention and commitment for 28 days!  It’s about moving towards success not being paralysed by limiting beliefs and fear.

* Get rid of the voice that says “I Can’t” and replace it with the one that says “I Can.”

* If size goals fill you with fear,  reset for success by setting a health goal rather than a scales goal. Let’s kick the scales out of this challenge!

* However, if a size goal motivates you – happy days – use that.

* It’s all about working out what works best for you so you can achieve the healthiest outcome both mentally and physically.

* Let’s power up and smash our goals in September!

Make sure you join my Lives this week:  Tuesday 7,30 on our FB public page (Slimpod for weight loss);  Wednesday 8pm (Slimpod Club) Thursday 7pm Instagram and 7.30 FB public page.

And please let me know if you’re going to take up the challenge and why. I love reading all your comments.

I will be taking the challenge but I don’t need to reset as I am on it. Never felt better or more motivated. Inches are moving and I’m sure I’m lighter. I don’t publish much. I know I should!

I need to not feel so stressed with the world. I try to eat sensibly but evenings are the downfall.

Yes I’m definitely on board! I think the need to balance mindset, food and exercise is a great target in itself.
I aim to get myself down a dress size in the 4 week period. There…. I’ve said it!!

I’m definitely in. I’m putting the scales in the garage and focusing on getting more exercise, drinking more water and herbal teas.

I am so looking forward to this new challenge. Thank you. Since my revelation to Sandra about my early life ( which I might add I had never uttered to another living soul) I have been confused about where/what to do next, so this challenge will hopefully get me focused.

I will definitely be taking up this challenge.Thank you Sandra. I have set a health goal to trim down my waist measurement by at least 2 inches with exercise this month.

I will take up the challenge as I need to restart listening to the pods everyday as I have let this lapse over the last few weeks.I also need to get into a fitness programme that I am happy with instead of just walking for exercise.

I need to restart

My problem is self-sabotaging my sleep. So my reset is about resetting my bedtime to a healthy one with the aim of building a new habit.

Brilliant couldn’t have come at a better time, I am 100% up for this. It is like you read my mind. My GP wants me to have a blood test in a couple of months as my sugar levels are a bit high (not diabetic) but if I don’t address it now I could be.

My 28 day challenge is nailing some HIT exercise. As an exercise phoebe for whatever reason, I am going to ensure I do the HIT exercises as detailed in week 11 I think even I can fit in 3 lots of 20 seconds of intense running on the spot!! No excuses, I am going to smash it 🙂 This is my favourite month, a time of change and its my birthday month so I am going to make extra special effort and aim to do the exercise 5 days a week.
Excellent daily motivational emails too, loving the changes I have noticed so far too, it is a miracle!

I will take up the challenge. I am new to Slimpod but after watching your video I will focus on my health instead of my weight. I suffer from a number of conditions including arthritis, fybromyalgia, and high blood pressure. I know weight loss will help but in the past have just focused on weight not my health. I am positive this will help me more. Thank you xx

Hi Sandra,
Yes! I’m up for the challenge. I should be coming to the end of my 12 week Slimpod Gold programme but I’ve been ill with a nasty chest infection for the past 5 weeks and barely able to get out of bed for four of those weeks (linked, I am sure to a lengthy bout of Covid back in March & April and made worse by my BMI of 42 – the reason I signed up to Slimpod in the first place!) SO..I’m a bit behind on the videos but not panicking as life/illness happens and I’m fine now. BUT I love the idea of a reset for the next 28 days, after which I plan to sign up for Slimpod Extra. My subconscious is playing all sorts of games with me and refusing to let go of ANY of the extra weight I’m carrying. Don’t know why but I WILL get there. There have been other changes, however – more energy, more walking, much more positive. I’ve ordered my wall calendar and some sticky stars to record my new good habits (that’s where I’m up to on your videos): a walk/a Youtube exercise session/a swim/no sugar/no alcohol/no wheat – these are the habits I want to form and each one will get a star. I commit to doing this for the next 28 days. WHY? Because I’m fed up getting these chest infections/because I want to wear my size 20 teal blue trouser suit that’s hanging on the wardrobe door/because I want to lower my cholesterol and improve my flexibility. Let’s go!

I’m going to join. I am that person who bought Slimpod, played it but didn’t have a goal so nothing really happened. This isn’t a reset, it’s day zero to learn how to get on it. My goal is simply to see Slimpod working by doing it properly.

Reply
Janet Hammond

I think a reset, will be good for me as I have suffered with my health and been in hospital since starting the program ( Covid related) and am struggling at the moment and not listened to the pods for a couple of days but back on them today. So please count me in 😊

Yes, I’m up for this. The last two weeks have been a bit of a roller coaster and I need to get back to where I was. Challenge is not just about weight or the girth tape. More about being positive again.

Reply
Hilary Wainwright

Yes I’m up for it . I’m in a positive state mentally , emotionally but inches not moving much . So maybe a reset necessary to push myself so that I see some physical results . Not weighing myself though for another month – am away without scales. Last time my BMI was 28.5 . Still overweight / not healthy and waist 1 inch above healthy.. so clear targets for the reset: healthy BMI, healthy waist measurement

I need to restart, I’m hoping getting back into a routine will also help now kids are back at school. 🤞

I am on week 8, concentrating on the messages and information I receive there. If i join in this challenge as well, it may take my focus of learning the basics; and the focus i have on the goals i have set only a few weeks ago away. It all sounds a bit too much for me at the moment

I’ve just started on Slimpod but not done too well so this reset is a good chance to begin properly perhaps.

I’m very new to the programme and though feeling a little overwhelmed by all the information I must be doing some thing right as nolonger snacking in the evenings and have made improvements to my food choices so bring it on ! Anything that helps me to take some time to look after my own health can only be a good thing

I am going to take up the challenge!
The past month has been VERY hard for me. I lost my Nannie on the 17th August (96-old age) and then I lost a friend who I had been caring for at home 18th August (terminal throat & Lung cancer) I’m now feeling a little lost in the world & needless to say my good friends Chocolate & cakes have popped by nightly after my tea (which is a very healthy tea I must add) and sometimes during the day, who am I kidding, that’s also daily. So I am ready to reset, regroup & get “Helen” back

I definitely need to reset my mind … after successfully doing the 12-week programme last summer, losing weight and feeling so much happier with myself, I was challenged with the stress of starting a new job at the beginning of this year followed by lockdown where I have literally eaten-myself-silly … I’ve been back to the depths of feeling I’m a hopeless case – I’m definitely going to give the 28-day challenge a-go, as I know that what I need to do more than anything is reset my mind and start to believe again that i can do it, and I can control my own life/destiny. I never used the facebook group or live sessions last time, so am going to use these to find the support and encouragement of others

Going to do it, I’ve had a hard time recently , my Vit B12 became insufficient and all I could do most days was sleep, I’m having a B12 injection today and hope it will get me moving again. I do wonder if anyone else is Vit B12 compromised, as I can cause many problems. I may request a restart too

I have done really well with my weight loss goals and eating habits since starting Slimpod in May but I welcome some extra support and I am delighted to join in with this 28 day reset. I can get bogged down with the intention of losing weight instead of focusing on being healthy and this is what I feel I need to do for my weight to change….change my mindset.

Hi Sandra
Definitely going to join the 28 day challenge as your daily inspiration will be a definite plus in keeping me more focused, I’m on week six of the 12 week programme I did lose weight the first two weeks though nothing since,that doesn’t bother me as there are so many pluses that I’m positive the weight will move. My habits have definitely changed my fight with food has completely changed it’s just sometimes I don’t seem to stay as focused as I should from one week to the next I no longer pick
or crave which is huge. Just I have a lot going on in my life and know that I’m very stressed at the moment and that’s nothing to do with Corvid so having daily challenges I think would help me stay focused a lot x
