Additionally, her recipes were so disappointing. How can anyone call a recipe made with Shakeology, Pudding Mix, and Crystal Light "healthy" - yuck. The other "cleaner" recipes were ridiculous - I don't need to know how to toast a piece of bread or how to bake a sweet potato and sprinkle nutmeg on it (that one she calls "Sweet Potato Pie"). The exercises were all pretty basic too. This might be a good book for someone just beginning to work out and/or find themselves, but it was definitely not for me. I'm still a fan of her work and her energy, she is no doubt a rockin' chick, just not at all a fan of this book.
I do like her open dialogue throughout the book and felt very "girl next door". I do like the part about writing a priority statement with which to identify your goals and how you set boundaries with other people , this helped me quite a bit during my brief stint as a fitness instructor. I think she identifies some great tools for brainstorming, not holding back and identifying goals and how to reverse engineer one's goals. I liked the exercises and a few of the recipes in the back. Some of them were so basic I was a bit shocked they were considered as a part of the book.
I did not like the many many large pictures of Chalene simply performing tasks that really did not seem to serve any purpose to her message. Honestly I felt like I Had to read the book because I thought I wanted to go on this career path with her company and even though she kept saying it wasn't a "diet" book, for the most part it most definitely was a diet book. Yes, there was some goal setting, but it was mostly about fitness and dieting. Personally, felt the book slowly began to unravel and I began to loss interest. It seemed very hurried with lots of "picture filler" and common sense information (after the reverse engineering).
I do think that the overall theme of the book was good and her heart was in the right place about helping people.
Honestly, I like -Turbo Jam, Turbo Fire Turbo Kick part Chalene's personality the best. I guess what I find confusing is in the book referred to Brian Tracy telling her to not "go all Hollywood" and as of right now, she has "gone all Hollywood.Read more ›
But this book leaves much to be desired. By the time you get to day two, you can already tell this is about Chalene, and the rest of us are just along for the ride. There are a gazillion pictures of her doing mundane tasks like hopping in her expensive car or putting on her expensive shoes or lounging on her couch listening to music through her headphones (yeah, they're probably expensive, too). By the way, I'm not hating, just don't see the relevance or why these shots were included.
As for the tone of the book? Well, it reads like she's begging you to get your life together. Well, with all due respect, me wanting to get my life together was implied...I mean, I did buy the book, didn't I? So no further coersion is needed. After a while (read: by day 2) it becomes a bit condescending.
Chalene, I love your workouts but as for motivating me to get the life I deserve, well, I'm going to leave that to the good Lord and my own common sense.
Some of the reviews stated she put too many pictures of herself in the book....to address this, there is approximately 25 photos of herself out of an entire 284 page book. I think the photos are there mostly to add energy and pop to the book. It makes it look more appealing and colorful to the consumer. I am not bothered at all by the pictures or feel that there is too many.
If you just want to 'read' the book and not follow through with her homework challenges, then you probably won't get anything from this book. It isn't a book just designed to read through and not apply the principals taught. It would be a potential waste of time for any person who just reads it and doesn't do the chapter exercises. I personally am keeping a journal that I am logging all her daily challenges in. I complete one day at a time as the book was designed and am feeling so much more motivation in life to not let go of dreams and goals but to make them happen! :)
In fact, I grabbed my husband after I started through this, and now we are doing it together. We plan on setting goals personally, as a family and then for all the things we lead outside of our household. I am also planning on taking my kids through some of the principals and have them start now (elementary ages) with goal setting for their life.
I highly recommend this book to anyone!
