Talking To Yourself: How Cognitive Behavior Therapy Can Change Your Life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was the catalyst for my new outlook. I've always been a positive, tenacious and proactive person but after a good few years of negative souls impacting my life i found myself struggling. This book helped me crawl back out of the barrel i'd temporarily fallen into and i'm renewed and improved. Her advice is beautifully delivered with great supporting stories and she helps you understand who's influenced you over the years (especially in your formative years and first serious relationship), which allows you to determine who you are, who you want to be and who and what you will no longer put up with. Even if you only read the first 4 chapters, this book has the potential to change your life for the better.

It isnt long-winded or academic in style and there will be a handful of personal stories that resonate with you.

I couldn't recommend this book more.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly edited and frsutrating, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The presenter has some great moves/poses and has a gentle temperament but the editing of this DVD is awful. The scenes are cut together badly with routines broken by scenes of the sea lapping onto the beach. The shot jumps from a lying down pose to seeing her suddenly sat upright or stood at the end of her mat, which means the yoga session isnt a spiritually relaxing experience when you have to move quickly to follow her routine. She's a lovely instructor but has been let down by the producers of the DVD. Also, the Dalai Lama intro brings nothing to the product. I'd recommend Elena Brower DVDs instead. They are beautifully created and very soothing.

These scales have allowed me to take my fitness goals to another levels. Knowing the muscle to fat ratio is extremely helpful when the scales might reflect no weight loss. Measuring your limbs and waist also helps you realise how your body is getting leaner and building muscle. The fact that the scales also tell you what your calorie intake should be based on your readings is a godsend. It takes the guess work out of it. I use MyFitnessPal to record my daily calorie intake and exercise calorie output and their figures had me starving myself with just 1200 calories a day and not losing any weight. The scales helped me figure out a higher intake and now i'm on track with healthy eating, exercise and weight loss. Well worth the money.

Amazing meal choices and well presented. This book allows you to create a variety of smaller meals so you can mix and match to create your own tasty feasts. I own Appetite for Reduction also and have yet to be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing selection, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this book so much that i bought a copy for my brother. A great selection of recipes and some seriously tasty dishes. It's transformed my mealtimes and taken healthy eating to another level. Translating some foodstuffs into British is easy with Google and most health food stores stock everything you need (such as agave syrup). I also bought Veganomicon, which offers a larger selection of smaller meals to mix and match. They're now in my top 5 recipe books and used regularly. You wont be disappointed.

This book is paperback and will stain easily but if you're careful it's not a problem. Veganomicon is hard back and a sizeable book. Both beautifully illustrated.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's rock solid and a great inspiration, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This woman is nails! In a good way. Her body strength is immense and the level i hope to get to fairly soon. I've had to start out with Elena Brower DVDs and Andrea in the Element: Yoga for weight loss DVD, but i'm quickly gaining strength and hope to be able to match her in the weeks to come. The setting is stunning and her temperament and tone of voice soothing. Well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tough and satisfying workout, 13 April 2013

A great personality to follow with some tough but doable moves (i'm a beginner). She's set against beautiful scenery which really helps when you're inside on a rainy British day! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Softly spoken and affable, 13 April 2013

This review is from: Element: AM & PM Yoga [DVD] (DVD)
I'm so glad i bought 2 of her DVDs. Elena Brower has a beautiful voice and temperament, which means Yoga is far more enjoyable and meaningful. Some yoga personalities are a tad too harsh, but Elena seems to have the balance just right. As suggested for the PM yoga, get in your pyjamas before doing the session. Without fail, i have the best nights sleep having done some satisfying stretches and taken on board her words of wisdom and encouragement. After a day where i might have done a run or tough circuit training session, this PM session is the perfect gentle exercise for nurturing the muscles and joints and settling my mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great price and great workouts, 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you need to save money on gym membership and like to have a strong personality to get you kicking your own butt then this is the woman. She's energetic, has 2 helpers showing easier and harder modified moves for the majority of the exercises and throughout there's laughter and positive attitudes. Jillian explains why you're doing the different moves and even when you have a moment of wanting to give up she keeps giving you reasons to give it your all. Even in the last few minutes she's asking you to "finish strong" and you end the approx 24minute workout feeling great and wanting more.

I've got most of her dvds now, which means i can do different workouts 7 days a week (if i was fitter) but the variety means that for 4 days of the week i'm never bored and get a great all-body workout.
