I found this at the dollar store.

It caught my eye, and when I realized that I'd been flipping through it for 15 minutes or so, I decided to part with my well-earned dollar.
Tell you what - despite the baggage of Dr. (frequently quack if not downright pseudoscientific) Oz - the plan is simple and straightforward. You can mostly use what you already have at home, and I learned that a medicine ball, resistance bands, balance ball, yoga mat etc. are all available at Five and Below now.
Combining your mind, spirit, and body - with a proportionate amount of information given (as well as recipes) for diet changes - - it's hard to see where you can go wrong. It is also concise and mostly no-nonsense. Dr. Oz's audience apparently really likes to hear that Mr. Green grew up in a particularly crack-riddled time period in the history of the South Bronx (repeated in nearly every chapter - - he's black and from Jamaica, you know... that's going to take some easing into for a distressing percentage of white middle-class America) - - but you know what? I really dig it. It emphasizes the "no excuses" theme.
I'll absolutely kick this up to 5 stars if my 30 days are transformative. For now, I'm just starting day 2. Can tell you - 1 was good, lol. Would work for most ages and levels of training/capability, I think.

I love it

Fitness book with simple explanations and easy exercises to start today. Green uses photos, quick recipes and plan for you to exercise at home. I would like to see more recipes and perhaps information on meal prepping but you have to start somewhere so I'm getting off the couch right now.

Billie Valligee Just had a go at this. The last exercise, made me realize how much I need to do this more than just today. Have a bad back and sciatica for over 2 yrs and my leg goes numb, but not one to give up. Thank you Donovan. I love you!
