Read full description of the books:
Oh-My-God! Knew about the book and her success with the 'burn' but my introduction to Fonda World has primarily been through gossip magazines (affairs, marriages, divorces, relations with father, Hanoi this and that, her religious bent etc. - ala People Magazine and Larry King) in the 90s. 'Klute' and 'The China Syndrome' were great films.
My favorite exercise and self-care book has always been a small-number 'Transformation - The Complete Beauty Book' by Bebe Mukherjee (an Indian author; published by Rupa and Co, 1992 ) but I've never been disciplined about it.
So when I was at an old book store a few weeks ago getting To Kill A Mocking Bird and a P.D. James book, I got this on a fluke as a 'trophy' even though I need some serious weight-losing too! I've been on this yo-yo of being very thin a couple of years (105 pounds was the leanest number, especially the years I had a stressful job) and then going very fat the next couple (190 pounds was the fattest I was) and from being healthy thin 4 years ago to right now being between 145-150 pounds.
Generally speaking let's just say that there's no fad I haven't read about but in the good old days, I didn't follow anything other than reducing sugars and making exercise a routine (jogging while watching a TV show for an hour).
But I'm not 20 or 30 anymore so it's harder to get thin because metabolism is slow and motivation even lower but the fact is that as Fonda emphasizes in the book - for me, exercise has never been a priority, or self-service has never been a top goal - and it has to be to get healthy thin - and there has to be a sustained commitment to it.
Well I opened the book today because I've been feeling puffed, heavy and have this paunch that is ridiculous, so something had to change. I opened the book, went on reading (it's written in a nice manner - surprise for me - I thought it would be a nonsense celebrity book, it's not. Instead of being a patronizing condescending know-it-all, Fonda actually is gentle and forceful in advice but never 'Gwyneth Paltrow' if you know what I mean!).
Of course her warmup is meant to get every muscle in the body moving, and it did - tiring me out, so much so that I went straight to cooling down exercises!!!! This is what happens when you sit on the couch in front of a computer finishing one book and another, having a sabbatical only for a job and a cup of tea a few months!
The good part is that since I've exercised before and have always been flexible, the body remembers it all and will catch up soon enough. The aim of course is not to do what Fonda is doing on the cover - rather it's to get thin in a healthy manner (have a flat stomach, legs that don't look and feel like log of woods and a single chin!).Let's see what dividends hard work brings!
(Addendum: 26th Aug.: It would have been good if Ms. Fonda had also written that all of the exercises between 'warm up' and 'cool down' are for toning a body that had already lost weight - and NOT FOR THOSE TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT - because guess what? I have pain in my ribs, abdomen, 'tire' all around because I swung my arms as Ms. Fonda suggested - I don't know why i forgot the lesson from other exercise books - first lose weight, then try to 'fix' spots and Fonda's book, though good, is for fixing spots, not losing weight)
