Non-Fiction Selection:

Available in eBook – Find Your Path: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong with the Fit52 Life.

I just finished Carrie Underwood’s newest book. She talks about her life growing up on a farm, a life filled with singing and her experience on her rise from American Idol to country music star. This book focuses how she keeps fit and eats healthy. She has recommendations on how to approach a healthy and fit lifestyle and also shares meal plans, recipes, and more.

“I want to be healthy and fit 52 weeks of the year, but that doesn’t mean I have to be perfect every day. This philosophy is a year-round common-sense approach to health and fitness that involves doing your best most of the time—and by that I don’t mean being naughty for three days and good for four. I mean doing your absolute best most of the time during every week, 52 weeks of the year.”—Carrie Underwood
