I’m a mom of 2, a wife, an entrepreneur AND a corporate professional, and one of the biggest things I have to maintain is my energy.
When I feel lethargic or sluggish, it’s not only me that feels it. My kids don’t get the best of me, I complain to my husband, and I DON’T have the focus to grow my career and business. I’m just too damn tired!
I literally used to spend the hours between 2pm and 4pm forcing myself to stay awake, and that mid-afternoon slump was bad!
And each morning, I would drag myself out of bed, hitting the alarm clock multiple times and then still feeling sleepy-eyed as I went to get dressed.
I would spend MUCH longer than I needed to to get my clothes on, because I would have to try on 4-5 items MINIMUM before I could find something that would flatter me (and by flatter me, I mean hide my love handles and my protruding belly).
One day, when I didn’t even have energy to take my kids to the park because I was too tired, and I dreaded thinking about how I was going to fit into my work pants the next day, it hit me that SOMETHING NEEDED TO CHANGE.
I started adding cinnamon to my coffee and smoothies, and black pepper to my vegetables, my metabolism shot straight through the roof, and I lost 40 lbs (18 kgs)!
I combined a wholesome, natural diet with natural fat-burning spices, and not only did my energy soar through the roof, but my belly flattened beyond what I thought was ever possible (I used to describe myself as “big-boned!”).
Now, my husband tells me I’m beautiful (which he always told me) – but now I actually believe it. I now can RECEIVE his compliments, and that makes a huge difference to my confidence and my mood.
Having more energy as a result of eating well also makes it so much easier to focus on my business, my income, and creating a life with more flexibility for myself and my family.
I talk about exactly how I started adding spices to what I was eating, and as a result, I lost 40 lbs., gained so much more energy, and created weight-loss solutions for other women just like me in my interview on the Entrepreneur on Fire podcast here.
Entrepreneur on Fire is an awesome podcast and I’m so honored to have been interviewed on it. It was awarded Best of ITunes and features incredible entrepreneurs like Tony Robbins, Gary Vaynerchuk, Barbara Corcoran, Tim Ferriss, and many more.
I talk all about how I created the “Spice Yourself Skinny” program in my interview – including “behind the scenes” info like what I used to call it before that no one wanted to join – and the one change I made that made the program go viral with popularity and create massive weight-loss transformations for so many women (like these).
So many women joined my program, Spice Yourself Skinny, when it was open last time (it’s not open right now), that I made $30k in 30 days. I talk all about the most important reason the program is so popular in my EoF interview here.
I would be honored if you listen to it, tweet about it or share it! Reply here and let me know what you think!
