I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading

The Fit Factor


The Fit Factor
How Getting Strong Can Help You Lose Weight
from Weight Watchers

Wiley Publishing
2000
193 pages (including the recipes)


Disappointing
I already knew so much of the information included and am way beyond the "Ten so-sweat exercises that build muscle". I'll be reading it again because there is stuff I don't know or need to be reminded of and I'd like to go through the recipes again.


This book would be good for you:
if you haven't seen the inside of a gym or don't know where your walking shoes are.
if you know you need to lose but don't know why, how or where to start
if you need basic eat-this-real-food help (daily menus)


I read this as part of my Be-Inspired challenge so part 1 is complete. Part 2 is to take a principle from the book/books read and apply them in your life.

Part 2: I now have a personal trainer at the gym. I committed to a full year (YIKES). I may be ready for more than this book can provide but I am in no way ready to go it alone. I've tried and it doesn't work for me.
