Attention all girls and boys - men and women - all humans. If you haven't already heard of the book The Goddess Revolution by Mel Wells, well now you have. Let me tell you why this book will rock your world. I was looking for my newest read when I came across The Goddess Revolution. I thought nothing more then a good plane book for my trip to Disney world. I threw it in my carry on and that was it. When I couldn't get any shut eye on our flight I popped open this book to give it a go. The rest is literally history. Within the first 15 pages I had felt like coming across this book was nothing short of a miracle. It was like it was placed before me because it was exactly what I have been needing to hear.
To rewind a little bit, I have struggled with losing the last "10 lbs" like most people do. I tried every kind of diet, weight loss trick, pill, lotions, wraps and corsets yet I really couldn't get rid of my little muffin top. I had danced most of my life and then fell in love with working out, so I knew my physical fitness wasn't so much my problem. I knew I wasn't an avid dieter. I would eat "clean" one week and then the next have a cheat meal everyday. I knew of course, that this yo-yo diet lifestyle I was doing wasn't working but I couldn't truly figure out how to break the cycle. I thought if I paid for a program, paid to work with a nutritionist, meal prepped all the right foods and kept a log that I would be on point with my diet. The only problem was, I could have paid my entire life savings and still wouldn't see any results. Why? Because rules are meant to be broken. Okay, so maybe not all rules, like laws. BUT! Why give yourself rules to follow when it comes to nourishing your temple. I mean think about it, the way we talk to ourselves is very important. If you say I can't have that slice of pizza now suddenly it's all you can think about. But if you say I can have that slice of pizza, I just don't want it you don't crave it so much. Sounds like a mind game, right? It somewhat is. Picking up Mel's book became one of the best things that could have happened to mind and my body.
If you have been battling with your self love, your "diet" regimen and your overall healthy lifestyle take a read and form your own opinion!
