A Giveaway - The One Day Way

Today is the day that matters, not yesterday when you ate a hot fudge sunday and not tomorrow. Just today.

This is the basic background idea behind the book The One-Day Way and it make sense. You focus on what you can do today to be healthier and to lose weight. Today you may chose not to have the potato chips with your sandwich or to up your intensity on your workout - and those are great goals to have and much more attainable than "I will never eat potato chips again because they are soooooo fattening."

Don't focus on the past ("I ate healthy all month but then I ate a whole package of oreos yesterday so I have failed"). Just focus on what you can do today.

Realistically this applies to more than just losing weight. Stop smoking by not having a cigarrette "today" (each day). Focus on keeping your temper today.

The One-Day Way gives you everything you need to lose weight and get fit in body, mind, and spirit:
  • Break free from past dieting defeats
  • Learn a realistic, life-changing way to measure success
  • Change the way you think so you can change your life
  • Translate your dreams into goals, and your goals into lasting achievements
  • Get strong with thirty-one simple exercises, no fancy equipment required
  • Take advantage of ten ways to eat better while you lose weight

There is a meal plan for 7 days in the book and it isn't a complicated one that would have you spending hours in the kitchen.

There are exercises that you can do in the comfort of your home - no fancy gym membership needed.

All and all this is a great resource and guess what?

I am giving away a copy! Not my dog-eared copy but a nice new copy.

  1. My healthy thing to do today is finally try my new wii Fit Plus disc, now that my cold seems to have finally passed!


    Just left a post on my blog for ya :)

  3. Today I did Day 2 of the 100 Push Ups in 6 Weeks plan and the 200 Sit Ups in 6 Weeks Plan. And later I will make my Wii Fit balance board cry when I step on it. Repeatedly.

  4. Well, I was going to say that I was finally going to drink my recommended dose of water today. - But I LOVE Melanie's Push Up and Sit Up plan - I think I will do that one too! Sounds fun! Except I don't have a Wii. :( BUT - my birthday is coming up in less than a month. Battin my eyelashes already!
