Cancellations & Missed Appointment update

Over the last 12 months in my business I have implemented a more streamlined automated booking system, which i have loved and this has reduced many hours of running around and more time focused on you my client. But the down side of this automation has created less contact with you before booking in and then more uncertainty in your minds on what you are receiving from my service. I have added more videos and posts on the treatment in a hope to make colonics more personable and less scary for you.

The reason for this update is to explain why I have implemented a cancellation fee. This has been a very long and difficult decision, as I like to think I am very understanding in your needs and have spent the last 8 years accommodating my regular clients. and I will continue this understanding as much as possible. But as a business women I need to put my big girl pants on and start knuckling down on people that book in and give no notice of cancellation or don’t even turn up!!! So, due to this increasing number of missed appointments and many hours of missed income. I have now decided to add credit card details as a compulsory component on booking an appointment with me.

Please be aware you will NOT be charged on this booking!! But if you miss an appointment and you haven’t given me any notice (24 hours minimum) then i will be taking a cancellation payment. For a no show it will be 100% full cost. This is non refundable and you will be unable to use this charge for another appointment. Yup my big girl business pants fully on.

Obviously, for my regular clients that have a crazy life moment, I will still be understanding and use my judgement on that, but reoccurring missed appointments will be charged as I can’t afford to keep losing my time and money and ultimately other clients missing out on seeing me and peak times are limited.

Getting to grips with automation in my business

This week I achieved some behind the scenes mini goals, these have been on my list of jobs for months if not years! I am not the most advanced when it come to atomizing my business, but over the last seven months i have to say with some persistence i am now starting to move forward with my business (THANKS TO TONY ROBBINS MOTIVATING ME!!) 

You may have noticed the NEW button on my website for BOOKING into my ONLINE CALENDAR Yayyyy... That was my first mini goal achieved and a big shout out to my hubby for working with me on this job, as i struggled at times to get it up and operational. Now that its been up and running for 6 months, I have to say its been the best thing for my business, giving me back more time to focus on clients and less time juggling call backs and making appointments.

The next step was to do the behind the scenes stuff!! like linking your information with my database so that i can automatically stay in contact with you. Which for the last 8 years i have never achieved. So this is massive step for me. This was not as straight forward as it sounds! I have no doubt for some of the more advanced business operators out there, you're probably thinking i am slow!!! oooooh yes I have to admit i have resisted this side of my business. BUT.......I now have no excuse, no more reasons why I CAN"T do things! no more reasons other than ME blocking out of fear!!! No more....... time to keep moving forward. 

So.... Whats next i hear you ask? Well, that's the million dollar question. Now i have all my clients at my fingertips i guess its time to keep this motivation moving forward. My brain is running on overdrive as i start to work though my next 6 months of goals and targets.. I will no doubt be sharing this with you all via, email and social media in a much easier and automated way.  Go ME!! 

1. Tips and advice pre and post appointment emails.

2. ebook and detox guide can now be sold and have somewhere to go!!!

3. Future events now have potential clients!!!

These are all just the beginning......

So if i can reach my goals, so can YOU!!!! Don't stop dreaming and reaching out for your goals even if you need to ask for help. 


Social Media, A thank you to my supporters

Today I launched a "one week only $50 gift voucher" to all my Facebook friends.

Over the last 7 years in business, I have very slowly grown interest in this crazy thing called social media. It has been a slow road, mainly due to the fact that I am not particularly keen on being visual to the World! Although my friends may disagree.....

So, I'd like to say a massive thanks to all of you that have stayed with me, liked my posts and articles and hope to continue growing this area of my business.

Over the next few months you will watch me struggle, laugh at my strange on camera antics and hopefully learn some interesting things along the way. I apologize now for any poor quality videos, vlogging, blogging and any other trendy social media thing i need to work on. But i hope you will also feel my pain and share a giggle or two as i circumnavigate this strange digital world.

This is going to be the beginning of positive changes here at urBodi and growth within my online shop will see some great new items you can purchase and have sent directly to your door. So sit back and enjoy the show!

Kids Back at School now its time for you to snap back into action

Well, today we saw our delightful children step back through the school gates, enthused with the joys of starting a new year, a new class and possibly make new friends.

So what about YOU!!!......... Is it time for a coffee morning with friends or time to take a look at feeling good again? 

Like many of you out there, my weight tends to fluctuate from Summer through to Winter!!!! I take it off for Summer, then put a bit back on during the winter!!! Yep very tiresome. I find like most of us out there that at times I am my worse enemy!!! creating raw treats and then consuming way too many of them when they are ment for the kids school lunchboxes........

So those who know me, know I love a detox and a trying new supplements, homeopathic drops or superblends etc, Why??? because when I do them that's when I feel at my optimum health.

I wish I was like those 20%ers that I meet in my clinic, I wish I was perfect!!!! God Dam

OK, so I am now venturing into the Hcg world again, the last time I did this program was two years ago, I had such dramatic weight loss results that I fell in love with these drops. Now having said that it is for 26 or 42 days only, due to the restricted intake of food, I would strongly suggest that you seek your GP's advice before you start as its not reccomended if your on antidepressants or heart medication or pregnant.

Now before you judge me!!! check out my weight loss so far. This is a realistic weightloss for me. I am in my mid 40's, female, exercise 4 times per week and a non meat eater!! Everyone is different! and I know I lose weight slowly. So no mattter what the marketing push tells you, remember its your body and it will only do what it can. Don't compare your scores to others as you will more than likely be disapointed and quit.

Hcg weightloss

70.9kg on day one

69.2kg day two

68.5kg day three

67.9 day four

Then I got my lady friend visit!!! so the weight loss stopped during that time. Thats ok, all normal, as we hold onto fluids etc during this time. So I am not going to panic, just let my body do what it needs to do.

67.7kg day 12 ok so now the weight will drop but it will start to slow down. I know how my body works too well!!!

Eat Fast & Live Longer Challenge Nov 2013

The Eat, Fast and Live longer Challenge for me.

Last week aired the “Eat, Fast and Live Longer” diet. The show created a lot of talk amongst my friends and clients. So I thought I would share with you some of the questions and myths they brought up and my own personal point of view on fasting and this new top selling diet.

So, if you have been asleep this week and haven’t heard all the mums talking about this diet, and missed the launch of Dr Michael Mosley’s new series in Australia. The UK doctor’s diet was developed whilst researching a drug-free way to control his diabetes. After some gruelling experiments with strict fasting regimes he came up with the popular 5:2 diet, which was the subject of the documentary Eat, Fast and Live Longer, which was screened last week in Australia.

Here is my opinion on this new diet. Dr Mosley says he has lost 12kg, no longer has diabetes and has reduced his cholesterol. He also no longer snores!! All of these we would also achieve from reducing our body fat and overall weight by 12kg. So in my opinion it’s not about the benefits of how amazing Dr Mosley claims this diet is. But more about the practical manner and our own motivation on how we pop this diet into our lives.

The brief synopsis of this diet is, you restrict your food intake to 500/600 calories on two days and then eat normally the other five days.

I actually like this pattern mainly because I am used to restrictive fasting as I undertake a fast most months. This plan is not for everyone, but then why should we assume we all fit into one eating style!!

I am a non-meat eater and have been since I was 11years old. This means I perhaps don’t feel as hungry as some would do on this plan. I would also like to share that when it comes to feeling hungry it doesn’t get worse as the days go on!!! You feel hungry, and that’s that!! It’s not going to hurt you, to restrict calories for a day or two each week and feel a bit hungry 2 days out of 7. There are lots of diet myths out there, and the 1200 calories per day, one diet fits all, just doesn’t work for a lot of people. It will, I think eventually die out. These diets just don’t reap long term results for many of us, are hard to follow long term and all-consuming. 1200cals a day just doesn’t always get us to drop weight!!! But what always does is a fast.

Saying that, we do need a lot more research in this area to establish the facts on how long and how often is safe to do them. I run a detox clinic I am used to clients coming in experimenting with all sorts of diets. The main thing I have learnt is that we all have different digestive systems, and different foods affect us all in different ways. High protein diets for some cause constipation, but for others are perfect, they feel full and great!! If I ate a high protein diet I would feel unwell, bloated, Windy and constipated!!! Others need to eat small snacks every 4 hours or they feel faint, tired and their blood sugar drops etc.

So my view on this eating program is this. Like many diets out there it will suit some of us and not others. It is down to us as individuals to create the best eating plan for ourselves with preferably the help of a nutritionist that specialises in the digestive system. You just can’t eat things because someone tells you too!!! You MUST LISTEN to your body, your stomach, bowel etc.  If Apples cause bloating, then stop eating them!!! If you have increased protein for a weight loss and are now constipated, bloated and feeling horrible then chances are this is not the right eating plan for you!!!

I am on week two of this new plan, and so far so good. I have hidden the scales to avoid getting disheartened. So when I get to the end of the six weeks I will update this blog with my final thoughts and the exact results.

Good luck with your own food journey.
