Favorite books right now

I love to read. Lately I have been devouring personal development books and I have found some awesome ones so I thought I would share!

The Big Picture by Tony Horton. I love Tony. He makes me laugh and I really relate to him as a trainer. This book was great. It is about finding your purpose and living your "Big Picture". It also talks a lot about how your physical fitness and health impact all parts of your life. I loved it. 

It Starts with Food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig. Holy Crap. I knew that food affected our bodies and minds, but I had no idea it did it the way that this book explains. It was an eye opening experience and has definitely changed the way I look at food and I look at my ED. 

The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy. I saw Darren Hardy speak at Summit this year and it was awesome so I got the book. He talks about how small every day changes compound and turn into large success in the end. As a person who always gets freaked out by the big picture, focusing on making each day a success helps me. Its a good read!

Make Success Mandatory by Jeremy Scott. This is a super quick read and it has a great message. It helps put things into perspective and is really motivational. If you are just getting started (on your weight loss journey or anything really) its a great read that will help you create a plan and set better goals for success.

Choose More, Lose More For Life by Chris Powell. I have just started this one, so I can't say its changed my life yet, but its good so far and has some really great inspirational stories as well as good tips for getting started on your weight loss journey. 

If you click on the books it will take you to their amazon page. They aren't affiliate links or anything, I don't actually know how to do that lol. And I wasn't paid or perked or anything to read these and write about them, I just did it. Free will is awesome :D I know that I don't know everything, about life, weight loss, or anything really, so I like to read about it. I enjoyed all of these books :D

  1. I just downloaded several of these to add to my iPad for reading! I'm reading a lot by John C. Maxwell; I just started "Sometimes You Win, Sometimes You Learn" - highly recommend!

  2. I think I'm going to read It Starts With Food. It looks interesting. And a recommendation for you... :)

    This book changed my life (and I am not exaggerating! It really did):

    The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite

  3. Hi, I've been a silent follower for quite a while now, but I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely love reading your blog! Your posts are so inspiring and relatable. It's amazing how well you articulate your thoughts and feelings. Keep on doing what you're doing! I'm loving this book list; it looks like my GoodReads list just got a little longer. My trainer recommended a book called The Virgin Diet that explain some of the science behind food. I just ordered it on Amazon so I'll let you know if it's any good.
