Share the books you read in July and whether I recommend adding them to your collection.
Hi friends! I hope your day treats you well so far. P’s best friend will come along and I’ll take the crew to the pool, then we’ll get together with friends for an eeegee and more swimming this evening. Have a nice summer day too!
For today’s post, I’m sharing the books I read in June. I’ve met my monthly goal of three books, despite being busy with new Fit Team programming and studying for Precision Nutrition. Reading *enjoyable* books sounds like fun, and while I should make a conscious effort to get the time, it was worth it. This is what I removed from the list in June!
With WomanCode, holistic health coach Alyssa Vetti shows women how to stay healthy and vibrant with a food-based program to rebalance their hormones.
Alyssa Vitti found herself experiencing symptoms of PCOS, and was able to heal herself through food and lifestyle changes. Feeling relaxed and reborn, she made it her mission to empower other women to be able to do the same.
Whether you’re struggling with irregular periods, fertility problems, depression, or a low sex drive, Alyssa Vitti says medication and antidepressants aren’t the only solutions. Pioneering and informative, WomanCode educates women about hormone health in a convenient, easy-to-understand way. The five-step protocol can significantly improve overall health and quality of life.
Renowned author and women’s health expert Christian Northrup, who has called the WomanCode “our bodies, our selves” for this generation, provides an insightful introduction.
I think this is an excellent and comprehensive introduction to hormone balance and cycle synchronization. I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of synchronizing our activities, training, work, etc. to align with our cycle. There are times when you feel more energetic, and other times when you feel withdrawn and focused. As someone who has been exploring hormone balancing since I quit the pill about 13 years ago, a lot of this review has been helpful to me. The author offers great ideas on how to organize your diet, workouts, and routine for optimal hormone balance. 8/10 would recommend.
this book It was highly recommended and it did not disappoint. The film revolves around the story of AJ Fikry, a grumpy librarian, and how one week completely changed the course of his life. I didn’t want it to end, and while it wasn’t deep or suspenseful, it was a pleasure to read. I would definitely recommend it for a light summer book. 9/10 would recommend.
AJ Fikry’s life was not what he expected at all. He lives alone, his library is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and now his prized possession, a rare collection of Poe’s poems, has been stolen. But when a mysterious package appears in the library, its unexpected arrival gives Fikri the opportunity to renew his life – and see it all anew.

In this revised and expanded version of One Million Followers, Kane will teach you how to get original, niche and diverse followers online from scratch; Create personal, unique and valuable content that engages your core audience; And building a multimedia brand through platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn.
He had high hopes for this book. I thought it would give me linking helpful strategies and ideas for growth, especially since my Instagram has stabilized for the past 3 years.
The Golden Ticket to Growth: Paid Advertising.
While I know this is a useful strategy and a lot of people use it, something about it really pisses me off when it comes to increasing my followers. It might be something I explore on launches, and I don’t think I would use it to increase followers. The thing is, when it comes to the number of followers you have, you also want them to be the *appropriate* followers; People who really resonate with what you post and stand up for. It’s better to have 10 followers *they get* than 100 followers who have no interest in your industry and main topics.
Also, he spends most of his time talking about why paid advertising is important rather than telling you how to actually do it. Facebook ads are very confusing and I would have loved it step by step. (I think that’s the purpose of YouTube.)
Tell me, friends: What was the best book you read in June?
Any ideas for a health/fitness related book to read this month?
