Free Fuel Up Challenge!!
I am so excited to share this new FREE challenge with you! I will have a private Facebook group where I will support you and give you recipes and tips to help you be successful! Plus it is always so great to have a community of people going through all the stuff you are!! This should be fun and ALL ABOUT YOU :) ( for once right?!)!! Let me tell you about the Challenge but first.....
Let me share something with you. This is a secret I used to keep to myself. I was not always moving and shaking the way I am now. You may not believe it, but there was a time when I would feel blah and I was completely dependent on coffee. I would start in the morning, have another around midmorning and then again around 4 pm. Once when I did a budget for myself to figure out where my money was going I discovered that I was spending over 100 dollars a month on Starbucks for one of those sugar-laden lattes. Vanilla to be exact, well... and the occasional mocha.
I was a sugar and caffeine addict not because I wanted to be, of course, but because my body was starved for energy and was looking for a quick fix. I was gaining weight, and my sleep was erratic. I was eating sweets and drinking coffee to feed my body when really what it needed was healthy fuel. I realized I had been suffering with an undiagnosed issue for years.
Finally, the aha moment came for me. I realized the underlying issue was adrenal fatigue and that I was not alone. There was no need for crazy blood tests or the fancy medications the doctor was suggesting. I just needed to change some things in my own life to get my mojo back. The good news for you is that you don’t have to go through everything I went through to get the answers, because I am about to share my secrets with you. You are about to find out how to have rocket-fuel energy all day long. You may not have adrenal fatigue stage 1, 2, or 3, but who in this world does not have some level of stress in their lives?
If you are feeling the crash and burn around 3 or 4 pm, then this challenge is for you! So sign up, buckle your seat belt and enjoy the ride because it is going to change your life.
Say goodbye to low energy, sugar cravings, poor sleep, and belly bloat; and say hello to glowing skin and a renewed you. Are you ready?
As a health and wellness coach and a student of nutrition I am here to help you get off the sugar and caffeine roller coaster and into the vibrant zone.
