Fit Moms For Life Giveaway!! Ends 3/20 CLOSED

I'm helping promote a giveaway for a great book, Fit Moms For Life.  Here is Penny Pincher Jenny's review:

I am so excited to bring you this review and giveaway! I was selected to receive a copy of Dustin Maher's Fit Moms for Life. I have had the chance to work with Dustin in his mommy blogger contest and look forward to participating in that next month. Being able to physically read and markup his book, (Yes I am one of those readers) has been a blast and it was extremely refreshing. I have been in a deep fitness rut/funk for a while and as I have shared with you before am currently trying to lose weight. If you haven't heard of Dustin Maher before I recommend his website and you can read and see the results of his program.
There are so many things to say about this book. The number one thing about it is it will tie into your life somehow, no matter your stage of your life. I really felt like someone was sitting there encouraging rather than lecturing me with his dialogue through the whole thing. His down home Minnesotan boy persona shines throughout the whole book and makes it an easy read. I have read so many books on the topic of fitness, weight loss, and what not that seemed like a drill sergeant or your dad was standing there telling you what to do. The book goes into huge detail on so many keys to a healthy life. These are the ones that really hit home for me personally.
  • Planning - I can vouch that if I don’t plan it goes down the drain and I get nowhere. Then I wonder why I even bothered.
  • Recording progress - So often the change is little so that you will get discouraged if you can’t visually see yourself changing. You can look back and see the inches falling off on paper, the habits changing, and your abilities improving.
  • Don’t be a slave to cardio and how to work out at home with weights affordably.
  • The importance of me time. If you just laughed and said, "What's That?" it’s a sign this book is meant for you.
  • It’s a way of life not a diet
  • How to get the kids involved and how to help your children live a healthy life style without the “d word”
  • What to eat and not to eat and how to work it into the schedule of a mom
Now what really makes this book hit home is the stories from Dustin’s clients. Moms, as a whole, relate to other moms' struggles so I loved being able to read how so many of these women were in my position and now look the way they look. When I first got the book, I had set it on the table, face down for some reason, and happened to glance over. In nice red letters by Dustin’s face is “Who is taking care of YOU?”, that was a reality check for me. Now for the fun part, I was given a copy of the book to review and one to giveaway! All of the opinions in this review are of my very own thoughts and opinions on this book!! Enter on the rafflecoptor below- all entries will be verified.
