Health Habits Challenge!

Are You Finally Ready to Say YES to ​YOU?

The Best Chance to Start a Healthy Lifestyle You've Had Yet​​​

Experience EXACTLY How Much Better You'll Feel and Work with Better Health Habits!

Do You Really Need to Get Your Life in Order?

​​You've been meaning to

  • angle-right
    ​Finally get back in shape, or do it for the first time
  • angle-right
    ​Parent, study, or run your business with the energy it deserves
  • angle-right
    Start doing you, making better choices towards your goals 
  • angle-right
    See ​how much you can enjoy your life and business

​But instead you always

  • angle-right
    Say yes to helping others at your expense
  • angle-right
    Procrastinate, refresh newsfeeds, snooze alarms, binge Netflix and Hulu
  • angle-right
    Give up on crazy diets and exercise
  • angle-right
    ​Wake up tired
  • angle-right
    ​Feel stressed
  • angle-right
    ​Need clear guidance and support

Having problems with follow through?  How many times per day do you say "not yet" or "I'll start tomorrow [this is more important]" to things you mean to do? Taking care of yourself, getting out of bed, eating healthy, ​exercising, turning off the TV, the list goes on...


This procrastination is practice saying no to your goals, which hurts your productivity, confidence, and quality of life.

By the way: this is normal, but not great. ​It's always a good time to get consistent so you can reach your goals!

Reasons Your Last Diet/ Workout/ Resolution Failed, and You Keep Procrastinating

​Change is hard! It's the difference between people who say they want to one day start/improve their business, learn ​to play guitar, run a 5k, speak Spanish, or lose weight, and those who do it.


The internet estimates we make about 35,000 decisions each day; a study from Cornell University says 226 are food related. That's a lot to handle. Each one ​brings us closer to or further from our goals. Here's why you gave up:


  • Your objectives weren't SMART enough to motivate you
    • Specific- "I'll do the exercise stuff at the gym"
    • Measurable- "and eat healthier foods"
    • ​Achievable- "​working out 2 hours longer every day"
    • Relevant- "because I probably should" (Did you know your purpose? Did you even want to?)
    • Time-bound- "forever"


So of course, when the dessert menu came, the next ​episode started, or you didn't get to the bottom of the newsfeed, your priorities were ambiguous enough to justify the less effective choice. ​"Just this once," "I'm too tired," etc. I would too!


  • You didn't have support

​New sports bras and shoes don't count. Did you have a partner or coach who was at least as committed as you were? Did you find community with others going through the same changes at the same time? Was anyone/anything holding you accountable?


  • You didn't ​think you ​were important enough

​You sometimes wonder, "Who am I to get what I want out of life?" You feel too busy- maybe you're such a giving person that you usually put others' needs ahead of your own- work, kids, ​school, relationships, ​​etc.

If your personal health is declining, you're killing your energy, focus, and performance. You're also increasing your risk of chronic disease and early death. That's not helping others! Like airplane oxygen masks, put yours on before helping others. You can only serve to the level of your consciousness and ability.


  • You needed more practice

​How long did it take you to learn to ride a bike? How ​many times did ​you crash before you got the hang of it? Sometimes behavior change is discouraging, but clear objectives, support, and valuing yourself will motivate ​you through ​tough moments until you see ​you can do it, build momentum, and start seeing results!​​


One more. The biggest and scariest of all...

​What's really keeping you from
reaching your goals?

​We ​trick ourselves into believing we're completely in control of our choices. But if you were really in charge, how do you end up doing so many things you said you wouldn't? ​​Would you still carry extra weight, procrastinate, and ​waste time doing everything except what you say is important?

Let's Talk About It: Fear

See if these apply to you:


Fear of failure- Deep down, you were afraid the results ​of your ​new plan would be slower or less noticeable than ​you hoped. You feared this disappointment, so you did little things like a few pieces of candy, or skipping days.

 

This gave you a sense of control- if you were going to fail, at least it would be on your own terms. But if you think about it, you were actually so far out of control that your reach for it killed your goal!


When your results ​weren't what would've happened if you had stuck to the plan, you told yourself and your friends, "I tried." Then sadly returned to ​the same old habits that you still wish you could change.​

Procrastination is the fear of failure- you're taking the easy, insignificant win now over putting effort into something you're unsure of the outcome. And explaining it away like your goals aren't important. Ouch!


Fear of rejection​- This ​​​comes up with sense of identity, reputation, and belonging. If people know you as ​the guy/girl who will always throw back a few cold beers and hot wings after work, the first few times ​were surprising. Same if you usually drop everything to take care of others.


You felt like you should keep doing what you've always done... but that always gets you the same results you want to change, right?


Also, FOMO, fear of missing out, regret, or making a wrong decision, is a combination of fear of failure and fear of rejection. Take a second to ​clarify it for yourself- what do you ​imagine will happen if you say no to that episode, event everyone's going to, or cookie?

You deserve to know what happens when you apply yourself

You don't want to go through life without knowing what you could achieve. You're ready to stop letting your fears, phone, food, and TV control your life.

If you need excuses, use them to reach your goals, not sabotage ​them yourself...

​People love to make excuses NOT to do the things they know they should.

  • "I can't, something came up/ someone needs my help."
  • "I would, but I don't feel like it now."
  • ​"I'm not sure how to ​start, so I'll wait."
  • "I'm gonna eat what I want because treat yo self / I'm worth it/ life is short."


Remember opportunity costs. Every time you say YES to something, you are saying NO to several other things:


  • Saying YES to another emergency project from that annoying client is saying NO to new prospects during that project
  • ​Saying YES ​to that extra drink is saying NO to a fresh start in the morning
  • Saying YES to chocolate cake is saying NO to your healthier ​options right now
  • ​Saying YES to temptation is saying NO to what you believe is right on paper, before the moment started

​MOST PAINFULLY, ​saying YES to excuse yourself from your goal​ is saying NO to your goal


Don't get it twisted- ​when you believe and behave that you are worth it, you'll say YES to YOU​!


Life would be short if you were ​to die right after eating that cake. But the sweetness of life comes with the confidence of knowing you will do what you told yourself you would across time and situations. 

​Tired of showing yourself that you and your goals are worth less than a mouthful of ​cake?

(weird to say it like that, right?)

Take your power back!

​Switch it up. Instead of telling yourself eating a little cake won't hurt right now, recognize skipping​ the cake won't hurt, ​while saying YES to yourself and your long-term goals.


It's a practice; I know the first few times can be challenging. I'll never forget the first office birthday party on this challenge. It was probably the first time I've ever said no to cake, while I politely watched 7 people around me eat it.


But the feeling of success was beyond rewarding! I was more excited not to eat that cake than I had ever been to eat any cake.


I'm doing it right now, and you can too. You just need a framework with clear objectives, support, and ​the belief you're worth the effort to face your fears.

It's Time to Prioritize ​​Your Goals ​and ​Yourself

I had been looking for a way to empower my audience, showing them how their health habits impact their businesses and lives. ​​​​So when I heard about the 75HARD health challenge, I gave it a try, figuring it could only help.


People I've been talking about the challenge with say things like, "Wow, you're so disciplined!" and "I could never do that, I like ____ too much."


But I know I'm still the same Reggie who was drinking wine and eating giant gourmet cookies on May 31st. The only differences were clearly defined objectives, a sense of purpose, powerful incentives, and the belief that I'm worth it.


​Nearly a month in, the results have been much better than expected! So I made a beginner's version for people who haven't had much success with diet or exercise.


I ​know most people aren't ready for a full 75 day lifestyle overhaul. But wouldn't it be great if for 28 days, the decision to make a healthier choice was completely obvious? You'd ​virtually have to say ​YES to YOU, and finally make progress towards your goals!

I've got THE SIMPLE SOLUTION to practice reaching your goals

Back for the 2nd time, and best yet:

​"What was your biggest fear, and did it come true?"

"I used to indulge mindlessly, so I was afraid...

​that I wouldn't stick to the program or participate in the group. But instead, I enjoyed posting in the group regularly and I achieved awesome results like losing inches off my waist! I also gained the ability to talk myself into just getting up and going to work out when I didn't want to."

​Alexandria S.

"I thought I would mess up...

​keeping up with the exercise. [My fear] did not come true. I was able to consistently wake up in the morning before work to get in exercise. The improved work/life balance has lowered the stress and helped with my sleep and waking up at 5:30am. My favorite result was improved energy and body image."

​Brett G.
- ​Father and Engineer

“I wasn't sure if I could do it.”

"I've always convinced myself I don't need to diet; I'm in good enough shape. Plus a dessert bar just opened by the office, July 4th was coming, etc. I realized I was making tons of excuses for why I wouldn't do things I know are good for me, and I wondered how that translates to my business. 


I decided to give the challenge a try. In 28 days, I had exercised every day, didn't eat any cake, ​felt UNSTOPPABLE when I followed through, and  focused better when working. I even took it to 75 days!"

What People Are Saying ​After Finishing The Health Habits Challenge

 I succeeded in my main goal- to refocus on taking care of myself.​"

​I exercised 20 times this month. I ate a LOT of fruit and vegetables. I had 5 alcoholic beverages all month and one sugary beverage. I drank more water than I have ever drank in my entire life. I improved my mind with podcasts and articles to help me professionally and word games to improve my vocabulary. I had 2 desserts and NO ICE CREAM which was a very big accomplishment for me. I lost 4 pounds and 2” from my waist. Coming in to this challenge, I was worried that I was changing too much at once and would not succeed. But I found the guidelines to help me, the group to motivate me, and even though I faltered in some areas, I felt that I succeeded in my main goal- to refocus on taking care of myself.

​​Sam F.

“People are calling me svelte."

“One belt notch skinnier! People are calling me svelte, which is apparently what you call a hairy man who loses a bit of weight."​

​Bob O.
- ​​Bond Attorney

​"I'm going for another 28-day stretch. These outcomes have felt awesome."

​Noah W.
Yes to You testimonial

"I have more energy, feel younger and healthier, and my mind is clear and sharp."

"​I was motivated by two factors – one, to get in shape physically; and two – to have more clarity of thought. Although I have followed a healthy diet for many years, as I’ve aged, I’ve noticed I feel more sluggish and have an overall slight feeling of malaise.


I’ve known several factors of my diet contribute to this – namely, bread, alcohol, and simple carbs. These don’t make up a large portion of my diet, but I think over many years of consistent consumption, even in moderate doses, they have had a negative impact on my life.


The health challenge provided an opportunity to take stock of this and motivation to eliminate them from my diet, even for a short time. Similar to my physical shape, my mental state has been feeling more sluggish over the years. I’ve often suspected that the aforementioned foods and lack of consistent exercise are contributing factors to this hazy mental state.


The health challenge was a great motivating factor to truly understand the effect of diet and exercise on my mind. The results have been as expected – illuminating and exciting."

​John C.
- ​​Small Business Owner and Author

“I liked the fact that you were holding me accountable."

I needed a challenge and I like the fact that you were holding me accountable by asking how I was doing during the challenge. ​When I saw you were doing the challenge yourself with no drinking , I gotta say that’s what truly grabbed my attention.
