Remember back when I talked about the books I want to read this year? Well I’ve finally begun reading them. Yes, I’m aware that it’s May! The truth is, I have had the hardest time trying to finish my last book from 2015. I always tend to read before I go to sleep and after a few pages the book knocks me out cold.
I finally decided to take another break from it, and read one of the books I designated for this year. I figured I needed a different genre, to spark my interest in the murder mystery I’m determined to finish.
First off, the fact that this book is written by a Kardashian may cause me to lose respect as a reader, but after reading it, I’m glad I picked it up. Khloe’s weight has been a common topic within pop culture, so I didn’t expect to learn anything from this book that I didn’t already know, but it was nice to get the perspective of someone who made a lifestyle change through self-dedication. What I really liked about this book is that it was less about weight loss, and more about how to use exercise to help balance your life as a whole. Khloe describes weight loss as a positive side effect of building a healthy body.
Not only does she talk about her motivation and transformation over the past three years, but how it’s normal to fall on and off of a new routine and how important it is to want to take care of yourself first. She also includes recipes, playlists and a few glossy pages of her in a bathing suit to tape to your refrigerator door. <–or is that just me.
Overall, what I took from the book is to not focus on weighing a certain amount. Focus on taking all of the frustrating things life gives you, and use that to transform your mind and take better care of your body. Stay focused, stay consistent and be the best possible version of yourself!
