I am looking for an explanation for "sod it". Here is the whole context:
It may sound like a piece of cake going on juices only for 7 days (or maybe not!), but trust me, there will be a few ‘Sod it’ moments on the programme and this is where you need to be able to tap into the right psychology in that particular moment.
It's an expression of anger or frustration, so these are moments when things go worng or annoy you.
To my ear it's a bit more than that, in this context. In the context of a diet programme, the phrase is talking about a moment when something annoys you because it's too strict, and you decide for the time being to ignore the regimen (and have a bit of chocolate or whatever).
Also, depending on Finn's level, it might be necessary to say that the phrase '"Sod it" moment' refers to a moment when you might be inclined to say 'sod it'.
(Some language learners might also find it useful to know that '"Sod it" moment' isn't a current phrase, although its meaning is clear.)
