Denise Austin's Daily Dozen Blog Tour! And Review!

12 Easy Exercises in 12 Minutes a Day!

For more than 25 years, Denise Austin has been helping people get in shape & lose weight. She looks fabulous at 52 and credits this by exercising regularly and eating healthy. In her new book, Denise's Daily Dozen, not only does she gives us the tools to get in shape, but they are EASY! She's not talking about a diet, she's talking about simple changes. Making better food choices, adding some exercise and feeling better!

Denise shares with you her plan of 12 easy exercises that can be done in 12 minutes a day, the exercises change each day so you're not bored, plus she gives you recipes and meal plans with "normal" food, such as Awesome Chicken Brick Burgers, or Tuna Salad Wrap. Included are tips to help you keep on track and even exercises you can do at the kitchen sink! Included are 12 ways to add flavor to food, shopping tips, and ways to boost your energy. Denise lays out everything for you each day of the week, with a checklist at the end of the day, so you can keep track of what you are doing. If you want to get in shape (one of my new years resolutions!) & enjoy trying new recipes, what have you got to lose? No pun intended! I thought the book was organized well, and the recipes easy. I also thought the tips throughout the book were great. Denise's Daily Dozen is a good place to start to get back on track! Check out for more info! *Hey, This Book is Kindle Ready!
