It’s easy to lose focus on your health when building a business. Being an entrepreneur can be stressful i.e. you eat what you kill and when your business is Wall Street, that pressure compounds. My days are long, sometimes 18-20 hours in my office sitting.
Bad trading… beer and pizza. Good trading day… supersize it! Great trading day… fine wine and filet mignon. Over eating and drinking to deal with the emotions of Wall Street is common and it wrapped me up tight. Just 2-years after leaving a 10-year career in NYS public schools to teach on Wall Street I’d put on 30 pounds without even noticing.
So at the end of November 2012 I decided to take a break from day trading so I could work on my business during the day and fitness at night. Just 7-months later I’m thrilled to announce I’ve lost 40 pounds and still made $121,000 profit swing trading part time with a 73% win rate. My business has grown significantly and I’m feeling a lot healthier.
Why should you own a NutriBullet?
Well, Thanksgiving 2012 I weighed in at 210 pounds, I’m 5′ 10″. Today I’m about 170 pounds and you guessed it, still 5′ 10″. I bring this up because on Thanksgiving morning, while I was sleeping, my wife was watching an informercial about the NutriBullet and bought one for us.
Now I’m not one for informercial products and figured it to be a scam, but when it arrived I kept an open mind and gave it a shot. I set out to use it twice daily and within just a few months, without exercise, I was down about 15 pounds. At the same time I drastically reduced the beer, pizza, McDonalds, fine wine and filet mignon too.
I still have the same entrepreneurial stress as I had before but now I deal with it in a healthy way. When I have a bad day in the market, I drink a NutriBullet. Good day in the market, NutriBullet. I no longer let the emotions that come with business and trading Wall Street impact what I put into my body. The result is 40 pounds of weight loss in 7-months, granted I added in jogging in April to increase the calorie burn.
I weigh less today than when I was teaching in NYS public schools in 2011 and that was a very active profession for me.
The beauty of the NutriBullet is I’m putting organic fruits and vegetables in my body that I’d never otherwise consume. Even better, it fills me up BIG time because there’s a ton of fiber in vegetables… trust me it’s hard to get fat overeating vegetables, I’m trying and the weight is falling off.
I’m convinced my wife’s decision to order me the NutriBullet has changed my life. Again, I’ve lost 40 pounds in 7-months and the portfolio is up $121,000 swing trading part time. My old teaching salary was $50,000 a year so not only am I getting healthy but I’m making good money too, pretty cool if you ask me.
Here’s my recipes I drink daily. All fruits and vegetables are organic.
Morning – spinach and a little banana, apple, pineapple for flavor. I fill the NutriBullet right to the top with spinach and pack the banana, apple and pineapple in. Fill with water and mix. This is a very good green drink, plenty of sugar in the small portions of fruit, you won’t even know your drinking spinach.
Evening – 1 tomato, 1 beet and fill the rest with broccoli. I fill the NutriBullet with the diced tomato and beet first. I think fist size for both those works best. Then I fill the remaining half with broccoli. Fill with water and mix a bit longer than the other drink above.
I’m telling you this has made a huge difference in my life. It’s by far the quickest and easiest way I’ve found to put large amounts of organic fruits and vegetables in my body quickly. 7-months, 40 pounds, business has grown and $121,000 in profit swing trading part time. I’m no Vanderbilt, but this train makes hay!
