While I was provided with a copy of the Diva’s Guide to Getting Fit and Healthy to review, all opinions are my own.
I met Patricia through one of the blog communities I’m involved with. When she announced that she had a fitness and health guide in need of review…I was all “me, me me. pick me”. And she did!
If you’re like me, your immediate thought is something to the effect of “but I’m not a diva’. The way Patricia defines being a diva is quite unlike what you and I may assume
According to the Diva’s Guide, a diva is:
“a purposeful woman who knows what she wants and make changes in her life in order to fulfill her God given destiny. She creates plans and set goals for herself, so she could live the life she wants. As women, we are always transitioning into different roles life gives us: mother, daughter, sister, wife etc. In essence, we are Divas in transition; transitioning into the women we were meant to be.”
This is not your typical, grab a shake and lift some weights type of guide. Patricia really focuses on helping you to heal and improve from the inside out. Which I find important because we need a health relationship with ourselves to make a lifestyle change stick and we have to know our purpose.
Fitness- she breaks down the benefit of each exercise and how to execute them correctly so true beginners know what they’re supposed to be doing. Form is important, people. After her explanation of how you complete an exercise with proper form, she has four weeks of workouts laid out for you. If you’re like me, the one thing you don’t want to do or know how to do effectively is put together a plan.
Nutrition- snack ideas and a “clean eating” food list are provided to make your life simpler. Happy dance!
Final Thoughts- The Diva’s Guide to Getting Fit and Healthy is a great way for beginners to learn the basics of how to get started. For someone who is reshaping their life, this book is a valuable tool. If you are already in a routine or have been working out for a while, you may not get as much from this guide. However, the Divas in Transition website has a wealth of information that anyone could benefit from…like recipes. Y’all know that I love food!
