Friday Reads, The Slight Edge

slight edgeWell it is another Friday, and sadly I’m reading the same books as last week. *sigh*  I will continue reading Rebecca and Leaving Time this weekend.

As a Beachbody Coach they really stress the importance of personal development,  not only do we concentrate on our health and nutrition but they also want us to concentrate on ourselves! I love that!! I started reading The Slight Edge today upon recommendation and was hooked from the first chapter.

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be-Ralph Waldo Emerson

The first chapter was so inspiring talking about how we have control over our life and what we make of it. We CAN be a success and we have all the tools to make it happen. CONSISTENCY is the key! Can’t wait to read a little from this book!! =)

What are some books that inspire you?

Just a short post today but I will be back this weekend with something for the Fitness category!

Friday Reads/ Top 10 Books I have read in 2014

So, obviously from the name of this blog, you have figured out that I like to read. For my first book related post I thought it would be fun to do a Friday/weekend reads and a top 10 list. I know in the blogging community “Top 10 Tuesday” is pretty popular so maybe I will jump on that bandwagon at some point. =)

Hoping to make a dent in these books this weekend. #fridayreads
