Create daily habits to reach your goal

LAST week’s Boot Camp was all about getting started with meaningful goal-setting.  This week I’ll be giving you tips on the best way to reach those goals you’ve set.

Your goals will be your vision for what you want to achieve and as I explain, having an emotional connection with your goal is very important.

This emotional connection will be the foundation for building the habits that take you to your goal. 

The thing that most people find very hard to do when they’re trying to lose weight is to change their behaviour towards food and maintain a consistent healthy lifestyle.

Your subconscious is responsible for your automatic behaviour and unless you have a Slimpod, changing the way you feel and behave towards food requires consistent effort!

This one of the reasons so many people struggle to lose weight and keep it off – it just becomes too hard.

If you think about your eating habits over the past 10 years, they’ll probably resemble something like a rollercoaster ride rather than a cruise! 

Nearly every habit you have today, good or bad, is the result of many small choices and decisions made over time.

And it’s the repeated pattern of small healthy behaviours that will lead to long term weight loss.

 If you’re serious about building a new habit, then start with something small. A great one to start with would be to consistently listen to your Slimpod every day.

Then you can build that into your life in the same way as brushing your teeth has become a habit.   

And please do leave a comment to let me know how you’re getting on. I love reading them all!

  1. Thought provoking video, I need to have a think about a change of habit. The first thing that comes to mind is to stop snacking between meals, or to choose better snacks!
    I also have exercises to do before I get up in the morning (for my back) so I shall start to do them again

  2. Wow. Thanks Sandra! It all makes so much sense when you put it so clearly. Thank you. I’m going to start with 10 mins stretching exercises in the morning, which will also mean getting up earlier.

  3. I notice a lot of people in the group are starting their day with lemon in water is this not bad for your teeth or am I missing a great start to the day

      Hi Carol, I must admit I love lemon water every morning! I’m going to the dentist this morning so will ask her advice! Thank you.

    2. The jury seems to be out on this one. Advice I read suggests that lemon water can be bad for your teeth but also that it is very good for the rest of your body. People seem to be saying that you should maybe use a straw to drink it to avoid your teeth – also don’t brush your teeth for over an hour afterwards.

  4. Such good advice on the cornerstone habit. I am working on that. Love the guidance which is very thought provoking

  5. This was my first view of a Slimpod video and if I’m honest I was expecting something a little bit patronising. I couldn’t have been so wrong! I really enjoyed watching this friendly and informative clip and found myself making notes to follow for the week.

    Roll on next week 🙂

  6. I love this video series Sandra. I’m going to make a daily habit of replacing my breakfast cereal with a healthy smoothie, and replacing some of my daily coffee with green tea

    1. Sandra Roycroft-Davis

      Thanks Debbie! How about adding some protein to your breakfast too – will help you stay fuller for longer!

  7. That was really interesting about the cornerstone, not heard that before. The first thing I did was make excuses but I thought about it and I am going to make exercise mine

  8. Just catching up on things. I’ve not been able to look at a screen for a couple of weeks, chronic migraines, but I have managed to keep listening. I’ve found this video thought provoking, it’s made me think about bad habits I’ve slipped into and how I need to build on the healthy ones I’m developing becoming as active as I can be on my good days will really be a good start for me. Thank you Sandra

  9. Just watched boot camp video was just what I need have been flagging lately, it has given me the boost I needed plus some good ideas thank you sandra

  10. Thanks that’s really made me think .
    I have brought myself a really nice book to right my goals. My thoughts and feelings. And what I am eating .I really do appreciate this help .

  11. My corner stone habit is walking my dog. My break fast is fruit. When I was slim I never thought about food. I must get back into good habits.
