Hope your November is off to a great start and I hope those of you on the East Coast are okay, you are in my thoughts!
Alright everyone, I have a confession to make. For the last few years, I’ve had major struggles with my energy levels. I struggled to wake up in the morning, hitting snooze as many times as I could before I absolutely had to get up. Because of this, I was usually running late which added further stress. I just didn’t get why I hated morning workouts and could never get used to waking up early. Even after 3 years of waking up at 5 every Monday, I still dreaded Sunday nights knowing I had to get up so early.
I often turned to coffee in the morning even though it sometimes made me feel jittery. In the afternoons, I sometimes had to take a nap for an hour before I could continue working. I just tolerated feeling this way because I was used to it and I had always been more of a night owl than a morning person. A lot of times, I totally felt like crap.
I was always told, “You have so much energy, you get so much done, you look great”… but inside, I didn’t feel that way. I got tired of being tired all the time and not feeling my very best. You know that feeling when you’re meant for so much more, but you’re stuck and frustrated? I felt like that for a long time. Even though I ate relatively well most of the time, unless I was binging on sugar (yup, been there, done that), I still needed better answers.
I finally committed myself to getting the necessary lab tests required to figure out what was going on underneath the surface. I figured out why it was so hard for me to get up in the morning and even why I had such intense sugar cravings at times: my morning cortisol was extremely low (it needs to be high enough in the morning to wake you up). When your body barely produces any of it after a night’s sleep, it makes it very very challenging to get up. I’m now on a supplement regimen and even more careful with the foods I eat to get myself back in balance.
I’m still working on repairing my adrenals, I still have some energy struggles from time to time, but I feel SO MUCH better… and am actually writing this email in the morning! What all this made me realize is that I REALLY want to work with people who have the same issues.
I’m not the only person who has experienced this. I see this in my friends all the time. They tell me they struggle at work, that they get upset tummies, they can’t lose the last stubborn pounds, and their cravings are running the show. Outside they look great, but inside there are so many things going on that keep them from feeling their very best.
I want to work with women just like you and me, who are exhausted and sick of always feeling dull and tired. You’re waking up tired, you’re tired in afternoon, maybe you can’t fall asleep… you can’t seem to stay awake or focused without “help” in the form of coffee, soda, energy drinks, sugar, snacking. You feel like you never have the energy to do what you really want to do. You’re ambitious, you want to accomplish great things, you want to take better care of yourself, and have better energy.
In my own journey, I’ve learned so many things I want to share with you, including the right tests to take so you know what your underlying imbalances are and how to solve them.
