New Arrival: PUSH, by Chalene Johnson

The long-awaited book, PUSH by Chalene Johnson, had finally arrived in my mailbox back home in Kuala Lumpur! Prior to the book release on December 20th last year, Chalene was promoting it on her Facebook page. Being a big believer in fitness and a big fan of kick-ass females, I thanked my lucky star for spotting the complimentary copy offer and immediately placed an order (all I paid for was the postage and Amazon took care of the rest).

My copy of PUSH

In her book, PUSH, Chalene shares her unique 30-day system that will help readers reset their priorities, get their lives together, and lose weight for good. I definitely don't mind getting fresh ideas to make my life more interesting and organized. You'll find, in the book:

  • Life-changing tools: The 30-day push you need to change your habits with 30 days of practical steps (pinpointing goals, reverse engineering a course of action to achieve them, and kicking the clutter—whether that means junk food, draining exercise regimens, or toxic relationships.)
  • 30 Throw-and-Go recipes
  • A guide to find your soul mate workouts—the exercises you’ll love for life and that will never feel like work.
  • The Bangin’ Body Workout: the 30 moves they need for total body fitness—for life!

I am glad to say that although I am soon-to-be 35 in September this year, my body feels and looks younger than my age. I credit that to regular exercise and healthful eating. I admit, though, I love fried foods and recently have been indulging for quite a bit, so I need to break this habit. Occasional indulgence is fine but when done regularly, it becomes a liability to my body and it'll take me lots of work to undo the wrongs. So. Chalene's book came in time to stare me in the face and show me all the beautiful pictures of her fit self.

This gels so nicely with my Happiness Project, too. Speaking of my Happiness Project, I am now at Chapter "July: Buy Some Happiness". I haven't been blogging about it since Chapter February—my bad, but I'll fix that soon. I am also concurrently reading a chick-lit by Alexandra Potter titled Going La La, which is about how do you choose between the love of your life (who dumped you and therefore you pack your bags to a place far, far away) and a man you've just met (at the place where you packed your bags to)?

I'll be posting about the good stuff I read in Chalene's book as I go along, so please keep an eye for them too. Have a wonderful weekend!
