Fit Moms for Life ~ (late Slim & Trim post)

So this has just been one of those weeks where anything resembling a normal schedule has been pretty much chucked out the window–who hears me??!! As a result I’m doing my weekly post several days late–and instead of my normal “check in” I’m going to be sharing this great book I just finished ๐Ÿ™‚

In my quest to be “Slim & Trim” I love reading different books and hearing about different philosophies to weight loss. I’m especially interested in anything that talks about getting healthy, losing weight, and KEEPING it off. If it’s geared towards moms well that’s even better! So I was pumped to read Fit Moms for Life and give it a whirl!

I’ll admit that I was a little bit skeptical when I picked up the book and saw Dustin Maher‘s picture on the back–what’s a cute non-married young guy going to have to say about a mom’s body??!! After reading the book and seeing all the before and after pictures of very “real” moms though–I have to say that I’m a believer ๐Ÿ™‚

I loved Dustin’s philosophy and approach because it all falls along the lines of many things I’ve always thought. I have never heard of the idea of lifting heavy weights in order to get really fit as a woman–like many of the gals in the book when I think weights I think “bulky” Iย  can definitely see how it would get you more toned. Also as some one who HATES steady cardio like endless running I loved hearing his philosophy that it doesn’t really do you any favors in the long run!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Dustin has some amazing practical advice when it comes to both working out, eating, and mindset. I especially loved his idea of writing out your goals for yourself 10 years from now. That was a great thought for me–because even though I might be able to “get away” with doing little “bad habits” now I know that it won’t always stay that way….and if I continue down that path a pound here and a pound there will add into a whole lot of unattractive and extremely unhealthy body fat!

This book was great–in fact I’m seriously considering purchasing his Fit Moms for Life DVDs…they sound like my kinds of workouts ๐Ÿ™‚ In any event I will be buying some heavier weights to use with my current workout DVDs and working on eating better! I thought it was super interesting that both he and another book I’m about to review (Unjunk Your Junk Food) both put the same kinds of ingredients onto the “huge no-no” list. With that kind of re-enforcement I’m definitely re-thinking some of the things I buy!
