I just came across an interesting book while surfing the internet. The Swing by Tracy Reifkind. I was looking for a kettlebell book to learn some new moves for my women's weight training group, but I found some real pearls of wellness wisdom in this book. Tracy Reifkind weighed 250 pounds the first time she picked up a kettlebell at age 41. She had been overweight her entire life. Through a change in mindset, healthy nutrition, and a consistent workout with kettle bells, she lost over 100 pounds! Here is a quote from the book that I love. It is right on the money.
"I came to the conclusion that truly healthy and fit people don't have to think about how to become healthy and fit, it's who they are--it's not a chore, a punishment, or even a choice. Forget second nature; for them, it is first nature. The question for me then became: how do you make something first nature?"
