Giveaway: "Denise's Daily Dozen" by Denise Austin


Thanks to the Hachette Book Group I have 5 copies of Denise's Daily Dozen to give away! Although I have not read the book in its entirety yet, I can tell you that it is chock-full of helpful advice for anyone who is trying to lose weight, whether you're looking to lose 5 lbs, 10 lbs or more! Here's the description from the publisher's website:

"From Denise Austin comes the perfect health book for anyone who wants to live better but just can't seem to find the time. Much more than just another exercise book, Denise's Daily Dozen covers a whole range of health and diet related concepts yet manages it all in a no-stress, time-conscious program of 12's. At it's core, this book contains the minimum daily requirements to keep the reader flexible, strong and trim. Organized simply into seven chapters, which equal the seven days of the week, it covers a full week in daily allotments. Each day will have it's own focus from Monday being "fat burning day" to Sunday's "recharge and rejuvenate."


Denise has created a total body program, including a 7-day balanced meal plan that includes healthy recipes, and a workout that encompasses 12 exercises done in 12 minutes each day. Everyone can take just 12 minutes, at whatever time of the day works for them, and turn it over to these simple and fun exercises. Cardio, toning, yoga and breathing exercises...they're all here but in a way the maximizes effect while minimizing time.

Beyond a dozen exercises for each day of the week this book will include many other of Denise's dozens for each day."

  1. My favourite thing about T-Giving/Christmas? Being with family. I had lots of family with me this past Christmas and loved it. More people around also means less eating, lol.....I'm too busy visiting to eat too much :)
    Thanks Jonita!

  9. Pick me! I'm willing to follow Denise through this book for 2 weeks. "By the book" day by day and I'll blog about it too.

    My favorite thing about holiday cooking is the smells in the kitchen. Eating the food takes 20 min. but the preparing/cooking takes hours and the smells make it all cozy to me.

    I'm a follower of your blog and I'm putting up a note of this on my blog today. That's 3 entries right! YAY.
