45: BIGGEST LESSON I LEARNED WITH BEING ADDICTED TO SUGAR



The biggest lesson I learned with being addicted to sugar was…..listen in to hear all the deets!

I always felt that if I wasn’t energetic, bubbly, upbeat, happy-go-lucky that something was wrong with me. If I started to feel a little down, if things started to feel out of control, if I was angry/irritable/ frustrated, if I was overwhelmed or anxious…. I thought this was not good. I would wonder what was wrong with me? This really hit hard when I was in the health and wellness network marketing industry. I felt like I always had to have it all together, I couldn’t show if I was having a “bad day” or struggling with my acne, food, sugar cravings, health etc. This fueled my emotions even more and turned into this battle and constant fight which led me to eating more sugar to try to “control” my situation and to try to STOP these “bad” emotions.

What does serve when you feel an emotion that is not so desirable in your body is to do these 3 things I mention in this podcast!

PSSSS…..Secret sauce: You need to feel in order to heal. When you allow yourself to feel, your life will literally transform into a lasting transformation and not a quick fix like grabbing that candy bar and diet coke to get you by.

44: HITTING THE SNOOZE BUTTON



HITTING THE SNOOZE BUTTON

This isn’t working. Hitting the snooze button. The alarm goes off and that little yellow oval pops up snooze which is way bigger than the other option which is Stop.

I have two choices, do I get up and start rocking out my morning routine or do I stay in my comfy, cozy, warm bed all snuggled up with my husband snoozing beside me.

iPhone should really consider switching it up to You’ll Pay for it All Day= Snooze or Temporary Pain/ Long Term Gain =Stop.

It really comes down to can I handle the pain of getting up and not enjoying that comfort laying in bed? Which is SOO much easier said then done and why I’m on a mission to help others master this step to set them up for an amazing day. Because it’s not about willpower. It is so much deeper than that! But how we start our day, determines the intention for the rest of our day.

There is a connection between your happiness, productivity, sense of control, mindset and mood that you have all day long and it begins with HOW you wake up. Not when you wake up. Are you hitting the snooze or not?

We sleep in cycles. When you hit the snooze button your mind falls back into a 75-90 min sleep cycle within 9-15 min. You then wake up 20,30,40 min later and you are going against your bodies natural sleep cycle.  literally takes your brain over 4 hours to shake this state. This is where you are groggy, you are fatigued, you struggle with focus.

Wanna get started? Do these three simple steps tomorrow when you wake up.

  1. Put your phone or you alarm if you use one of those not beside you in bed. You literally need to get out of bed in order to turn off your alarm.
  2. When alarm goes off. Get out of bed and drink at least 8 ounces of water
  3. Hop into the shower and instead of turning the water to warm/ hot…. Take a cool shower!

That’s it. Start off with these three things and throughout your day be curious. How different do you feel? Do you feel more awake? More focused? Less groggy?

If you are ready to dig deeper and to start figuring out what to actually do when you wake up, send me a DM for a free coaching session to set a personalized morning routine that is unique for you! 

The power lies in the morning! How are you going to start your day lady!?

43: SUGAR ADDICTION WITH LIZ JUSTINE



In this episode Liz digs deep about her addiction to sugar and how she worked through this challenge in her life. She shares with us about her disordered eating, exercise addiction and then her journey to binge eating which led to a chronic illness. With her recovery from the addiction to sugar, she realized that the mind and body are so connected and that the healing journey needed to include both areas.

My most favorite part of this was when she chatted about how not only does food we eat matter, but the energy we have behind eating the food is crucial and that this energy we have towards our food actually has a greater impact then the food itself. And my second fav thing about this episode was when she dug deep into how RESTRICTING FOOD IS NOT THE ANSWER!! So many times we think we will just avoid this food or that food altogether, but this actually just fuels our desire to have it even more and never actually heals us.

Sugar addiction is so much more than just a craving and willpower alone will not heal you from this addiction. Listen in to hear the deets on how Liz was able to kick this addiction to the curb and change her relationship to food.

42: HOW TO HANDLE CHANGE



Change- life is full of them! The seasons change, people in our life change, clothing style changes, our favorite restaurant changes their menu or maybe one of your fav products changes its formula and it no longer works. We ALL go through change.

But, what is your take on change? Do you resist it? Do you dread it? Do you fight it?

Or do you embrace it and allow yourself to grow and transform it?

Listen in to see how when I changed my relationship to change this directly impacted my binge eating/ emotional eating/ sugar cravings. Because when I changed my perception of change- it was no longer painful for me. I came at if from a different approach and therefore it didn’t trigger my past autopilot response to eat away my feelings of uncertainty that change use to bring.

Action Step:   Let your curiosity seek out how do you respond or react to pain? How come? What is your fear in change? Do you trust that you can handle what the change will bring into your life? Can you be open to shifting your perception of change so that you can live a life free of this fear instead of it overwhelming you?

39: HOLIDAY GOODIES AND EMOTIONAL EATING/BINGE EATING/ OVEREATING



Holiday season- there are cookies, fudge, baked goods, bars, candy galore!! If you struggle with sugar, food and control- this is a nightmare and can literally stress you out.

In the past I knew that I shouldn’t be constantly thinking about the goods and when to eat it, how much should I eat or when I should stop.

I knew that I shouldn’t depend on the sugar rush the sweets would provide in order to get through the chaos.

But, I had no idea how this would ever end. What would my life look like not turning to sugar/ sweets or even worse… what if I didn’t eat those foods and never tasted that yumminess… how boring!

But, I longed for a different life where my mind would be at peace with sweets and food and where it would no longer feel like a battle.

Action Step:   Get curious, do you struggle with sugar? With food? With overeating? Do you desire change?

37: CHANGES, CHALLENGES, GROWTH



WOW-How is it almost 2020!? I remember last year at this time. It was a not-so-fun part of my life and my journey. I remember getting my lowest paycheck in my network marketing biz and feeling like such a failure, feeling like what is wrong with me? Why am I struggling so much!? Listen to hear about where 2019 took me: The up’s, the down’s the feelings of being an imposter, the feelings of failure and the feelings of disappointment.

But, I’m grateful. I’m so grateful for that opportunity because I would never be where I am today. I would have never chosen my niche to be serving Mompreneurs in the Health & Wellness industry to help them end their battle with sugar so they no longer feel like an imposter in their industry. SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR THIS!!!!

AND- guess what. I am committed to serving you in a private group! Check it out here! I’m building this from the ground up in order to truly serve those Mompreneurs in the health & wellness industry to struggle with sugar addiction and struggle with feeling like a fraud or an imposter in their industry because of it. Together we rise. Together we grow. Together we embody. Join me- in the group!

Action Step:   Take a peak at your year, where have you grown? What were some events or challenges that happened that at the time you were devasted, but now can look back and see the lesson? How can you show more gratitude for this part of your life?
