BRITE Book Club (Books Read Intentionally To Educate - Healthy Book Club)

Update:

We are on the third chapter of the book. Again do not need to have the book or to have read any chapters so far. We read the chapter together and talk about it as we go.

Also, moved start time to 3:30PM

________________

My gym, Phitness Plus, is starting a Healthy Book Club called BRITE Book Club (Books Read Intentionally To Educate). We have selected Skinny Bitch by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin as the first book to read. We will meet every two weeks, starting with Sunday, November 4th from 3PM-4PM and will read one chapter per meeting.

This MeetUp is appropriate for significant others - less appropriate for kids, but you're welcome to bring your kids as we have a playroom available.

Don't worry if you do not have the book or you haven't read the first chapter yet. The chapters are very short and can be read at the meeting.

Each meeting we'll dig deep into the message and content of the chapter and develop some healthy takeaways.

Here is a synopsis of Skinny Bitch:

Not your typical boring diet book, this is a tart-tongued, no-holds-barred wakeup call to all women who want to be thin. With such blunt advice as, "Soda is liquid Satan" and "You are a total moron if you think the Atkins Diet will make you thin," it's a rallying cry for all savvy women to start eating healthy and looking radiant. Unlike standard diet books, it actually makes the reader laugh out loud with its truthful, smart-mouthed revelations. Behind all the attitude, however, there's solid guidance. Skinny Bitch espouses a healthful lifestyle that promotes whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and encourages women to get excited about feeling "clean and pure and energized."


Next meetings:
Sunday, December 16th from 3PM-4PM
Sunday, December 30th from 3PM-4PM
Sunday, January 13th from 3PM-4PM
Sunday, January 27th from 3PM-4PM

Sunday, February 10th from 3PM-4PM
Sunday, February 24th from 3PM-4PM

and so on...

    This sounds like so much fun, I would love to attend. I am without a car so wondering if anyone attending lives near Goodman pool, area or I may be able to get a lift, where is the location?

      Kristy; I could swing by to pick you up if you'd like. We are actually moving the book club to 3:30 so I'd be coming from my 2PM workout - The gym is located off Fish Hatch to Greenway Cross.
