Blog Tour: The One Day Way (plus Giveaway)

Last year some of my friends who have done blog tours posted reviews of a book called Never Say Diet by Chantel Hobbs. It intrigued me. So I bought a copy along with the journal that went with it & I tried her methods. And I got results. Sadly I stopped following her methods. But when I was given the chance to read her newest book - The One Day Way - I knew I had to try it.

Chantel covers some of the same things that she did in her first book but the overwhelming theme to me in her newest book was - "Just take it one day at a time. Don't let your past define your present. Don't let your future derail your present. Focus only on what you can change TODAY."

Honestly, isn't that great advice for life?? She doesn't say to not have goals but don't let them become so overwhelming that you sabotage what you are doing and attempting. If your goal is to exercise five days a week for two months & you miss two days, should you consider yourself a failure? Of course not, because just remember all the other times you DID exercise! Celebrate those victories and every day is new.

The One-Day Way produces lasting results by taking you back to basics. No more complicated weight-loss strategies. No more expensive diet plans that achieve only temporary results. Instead, you will lose weight and get fit with Chantel Hobbs’s simple, high-energy meal plans and her at-home program for cardio exercise and strength training. She will teach you how to change the way you think, which leads to new actions. Before you know it you will be strong, fit, and healthy. All it takes is doing things differently for twenty-four hours—and then repeating it.

The One-Day Way gives you everything you need to lose weight and get fit in body, mind, and spirit:
  • Break free from past dieting defeats
  • Learn a realistic, life-changing way to measure success
  • Change the way you think so you can change your life
  • Translate your dreams into goals, and your goals into lasting achievements
  • Get strong with thirty-one simple exercises, no fancy equipment required
  • Take advantage of ten ways to eat better while you lose weight

By focusing on food, faith, and fitness, Chantel shows you not only how to lose weight, but how to build the new life you were designed to live. You don’t have to wait any longer. The One-Day Waygives you all the tools for success, starting right now.
