Scrambling to get things done. Feverishly working on the next big project. Falling into bed like a dead weight at the end of the night. There are just not enough hours in the day.
This is the life of most women. If you are like me, you thrive on this. A busy day is a productive day! However, we run the risk of pushing ourselves to the edge – and over…to BURNOUT.

Today: Megan, from Bump Life, shares her story
I didn’t know anything about adrenal fatigue and a quick google search left me a little skeptical. I have a background in nutrition, it was my major in college and some of my professors were and are at the forefront of Nutrition Science. I also freely admit that it is a growing and evolving science that I certainly don’t know everything about, but between my educational background and my years of being a personal trainer, I feel like I get a bit jaded by whatever the next nutrition trend is. I feel like I have heard it all;
“Oh, you’re not eating gluten? I see.”
“No, I haven’t tried the Paleo diet.”
“Yes, lots of people are doing South Beach”
“I am sure your uncle did lose 30 pounds on Atkins”
I figured adrenal fatigue might just be the next thing on that list of trends. But I agreed to go along with it because Selena is awesome and she was a huge help to me on my blog with her series on Green Smoothies. Then I read her post, and to quote Selena;
“So I went on my way, doing what I do best: EVERYTHING. I am a very driven person, and push myself to be great. It is unacceptable for me to aim for anything less than the stars.”
I chuckled because she was describing me.
Don’t forget to share these stories. There are so many people out there who need this education! Your weary friend will thank you!
