Book Review: Fit Moms for Life & Giveaway

Our society almost “forgives” mothers for being fat:

  “oh she has had 3 kids of course she will be heavier”
 “with a home, a job and children when do you eat right and exercise?”
“she is a mom, what do you expect?”

LADIES – let’s stop these expectations and excuses!   Let’s show society we can be better – healthy and fit!


I was so excited to receive my “Fit Moms for Life” book by Dustin Maher.  As most of you know I am on Weight Watchers right now so I am in the game to get healthy and fit for my family – especially Jude. 
This book was a perfect read for me.  I am motivated by others.  I love reading about other people’s success stories and tips and this book is full of those.  Oh and don’t forget the before and after pictures too!  Again, a HUGE motivator for me. 

Dustin has a goal for all of us mothers – he wants us all to be fit and healthy so we can be the best mother’s at all possible!  As I read this book it clicked – it isn’t just the numbers on the scale or the way that I feel about myself anymore it is about my family.  I am a mother, a wife and a daughter which means I have others to care for as well.  It isn’t just about me!  Thank you Dustin for helping me see that. 

I have been able to incorporate this book into my health plan now which is great.  The recipes and easy exercises are fantastic too!
 Dustin uses the 5 pillars of fitness, mindset, nutrition, strength training, burst training and environment in his documentation.  This book takes you through the 5 pillars as the 31 mothers highlighted in the book share their stories.  They WON the fight of being a “FAT MOM”!

This book is a great book to jumpstart your lifetime goal of being a fit and healthy mother!  What goals do you have?  My goal – to lose 65 pounds!  I will reach this one day and until then I am focusing on the small goals and continuing on the path of fitness and health.

If you are interested in this book you can purchase it here for $19.95.
