Abigail Spencer Dishes on Steaz Energy
Steaz is fortunate to have a number of 'Celebristeaz' that are crazy about our products and willing to share how they discovered a better way with Steaz. So we were stoked when Abigail Spencer volunteered to be our first guest blogger! You most likely know Abigail from her role as Suzanne Farrell in Mad Men or as Becca in All My Children. She's recently appeared on a number of shows, including ABC's Castle and TNT's HawthoRNe. Spencer lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Andrew and their son, Roman.
Hi, I'm Abigail Spencer and I am a recovering diet drink addict. I used to drink diet energy drinks, like....a lot, at least one a day, sometimes two or three, oscillating between this brand and that ... as though the variety made it better. Not okay, right? So bad for me and I knew it. I had to get off the stuff. I wanted to but I didn't know how, or what I could supplement with. I don't drink coffee because it makes me feel sick, but I still needed that little boost, especially with my shooting schedule, auditions, errands, etc.... and so i kept drinking them.
...Until I discovered that my husband and I were pregnant with our first child. At that moment, I quit cold turkey. Ten months later our son Roman was born. Two months after that, I started working again. I had vowed never to go back to all the high-caffeine, unnatural crap, but I do love me some tea, green tea especially. Yet, I wanted something organic that could give me energy, that came in a can, that was, in a word, EASY, without all the crap. Plus, I wanted it to be low in sugar and glycemic index since I'm an actress and, well, a woman. :) OH, and it had to make me feel better, too. That's not too much to ask for, right?
One day at Whole Foods, I stumbled across your product. Literally, stumbled. The diet Steaz Energy. All the ingredients checked, which was awesome, low in all the right numbers, and the berry flavor was quite excellent. I was nursing my son, so it was okay for me to have while I nursed, and that was it.
I buy them by the case now, and make a concerted effort to get my friends to start drinking them, especially all my mommy friends who are nursing, and looking to lose that last bit of baby weight.
All this to say. THANK YOU! for your product, for your vision. Steaz not only has been my alternative, it has been my answer. I KNOW that diet Steaz helped me lose the 40 plus pounds I gained along with a healthy diet and pilates two times per week with my incredible trainer Jessica Mctighe. I live an active lifestyle, but before my son I worked out all the time, and now I don't have the time. So I do my pilates, take care of my son, work and drink Steaz Energy. It sustains me when I'm on set and pulling all night-ers for work and chasing around my precious 18 month old son.
Thank you for making such a rad product!
