I can't make the link work, and a search doesn't find it. I saw the book the other day in the bookstore and it looked interesting!

I still haven't picked up the workbook. I'll try and get over there and check out your team.

I did it!! I started a SparkPeople book club for this book!!

I purchased this book more than a year ago and absolutely loved it! I also purchased the workbook and went through its exercises at the same time. I read this thread when I first joined back in June, there seemed to be some interest, and thought the idea of a book club sounded great... but I was new and knew nothing about running a team. Well, I have been feeling the urge to re-read Warrior Goddess Training and I am feeling more confident with SparkPeople, so I decided to go for it! I even emailed the powers that be at WarriorGoddess.com and got permission to be an official book club. =)

Anyhow, right now I am the only member of the team, but you can find it at http://teams.sparkpeople.com/WarriorGoddes
s or search for it from the SparkTeam page. I would love to have any of you join me. To give the team time to develop, I have set September 6th (right after Labor Day) as our start date. So excited!!

A book club is a lovely idea--I'm feeling too busy to do much with it, but love the idea of members working together. Maybe you will help me stay motivated and inspired to tackle some of my demons!

Who has information on the workbook? I like the thought of getting practical and working through the material.

Blessed Be, Amanda

I am very far behind on the boot camp, so I'm going to try to get caught up. I don't have the workbook yet but, if you wanted to start a book club, I would like to participate. All I've seen yet with the facebook group are posted memes rather than sharing. It's nice for a little "quote of the day" but it doesn't go as in delpth as I would like.

How is everyone doing with Boot Camp? I missed 2 days and am a bit behind.
The facebook group isn't what I thought it would be.

I would really like to do a book club, too. I am about half way through the book. Maybe one chapter a week? I wanted to read it through and then work through it. How would you like it set up? I don't have much experience with this but I do have the book club information from Heather Ash and I have the workbook.

Is it ok with the team leaders to run a book club discussion in this thread?

Amanda - No, it isn't on facebook. It is an email every day with a link to a video, blog post and an assignment. The faceook group is separate.

Bootcamp starts today! Yay! I am super excited about joining you all for this and seeing where the discussion takes us. =) The first emails were in my inbox bright and early this morning... I resisted the urge to open them because I will not get a chance to fully explore them until this afternoon. Can't wait!!

The book and workbook have been at the top of my Amazon wishlist forever...After seeing this discussion, I bought them both yesterday and signed up for the boot camp and FB page. I was delighted to see the first day in my mail box! This is going to be epic!

I had already ordered the kindle version of the book and was able to sign up for the bootcamp without purchasing the hard copy. I'll have to go look for the facebook group.

Thank you for sharing the information!

Hi Julee!

I was super excited when I got my book and immediately read the intro... then life got busy. Story of everyone's life, right? It is sitting right next to my day planner just waiting for me to dive into it - may have to curl up with it again after Sparking. =) Thanks for letting me know about the new class starting; I looked on the website and could only find info about a class starting in January. Can you point me in the right direction? As for the workbook, I ordered it also, but have not delved into it enough to give you good insight.

I am sure if you start a discussion, others (including myself) will join in. =)

Hello.
I don't know if anyone is still working on this book or reading this thread but I just ordered the kindle version and the audio version of the book today. Did you know there is a free "bootcamp" for this book starting on March 1? And a facebook group. I have signed up for both.

There is a workbook. Does anyone have it? Is is helpful?

I tried the Chondroitin drinks and didn't find it helped me much. Weight loss, silicone injections, heat & cold.... and my PT exercises. The PT exercises help immensely. TTYL.

Glad you are feeling better, Moira--I know about happier knees! Mine used to really bother me, and shedding the pounds gradually helped enormously. Though I still take my glucosamine with chondroitin, just to stay safe. emoticon

Hi Team: Sorry I haven't been around much. I'm not big on team forums but I do make an effort. I need the support. I've been good about my eating and exercising and I've been losing. I'm out of the uncomfortable stage that I'd just gotten into, my fat is down and I'm much more comfortable. My knees are happier and I'm not struggling to find clothes that fit. Hope all are well. Blessed be!

I'm new to the group and just wanted to say thank you for mentioning this book. I decided to buy it for my kindle and really like it so far. I feel like this will really help me with my inner growth.

Jet, I couldn't remember who recommended this book--in fact I forgot we had a separate thread for it. emoticon Gotta say emoticon so much for the recommendation. I got it from the library, totally loved it, bought my own copy which I'm happily highlighting and quoting in my daily status. In fact I shared it with my therapist who found it very intriguing.

emoticon for the recommendation--I'll see if the King County Library System has it.

On your conflict question, I think it's a common one. But I think it's important to overcome all thinking that says we are not lovable or worthy if we look ___, if we weigh ____, if our home ____, if our bank account ____, if our relationship status ____ or any other way we might label or judge ourselves, doesn't meet certain expectations or cultural ideals.

In Jai Josefs' wonderful song, I Love Myself the Way I Am, the final verse goes:
I love myself the way I am, and still I want to grow.
But change outside can only come when deep inside I know
I'm beautiful and capable of being the best me I can.
And I love myself just the way I am.

It isn't always easy, but letting go of shame and guilt, and loving yourself enough to put in the effort to change habits and thinking patterns can make it easier to succeed. That's been my experience, anyway.

Blessed Be, Amanda

I think one of my issues comes in with a conflict I feel between accepting and loving myself as I am now and seeking self improvement.

How does one be at peace with say (just as an example) ones weight or size but also seek to lose pounds or tone and build muscle? They seem to contradict one another. I might be thinking too hard.

Has anyone read Warrior Goddess Training by Heatherash Amara? I'm reading it right now and it's a great book. The first lession is all about commitment to yourself and figuring out where we draw our power from. Is it from within, from your love and compassion and internal fire? Or is it from your appearance, your belongings, job, bank balance or significant other?

As I work my way through the hard questions I find they have hard answers which lead to even more difficult questions. I'm having difficulty answering these questions myself and I'm not sure who I should ask for outside perspective. This seemed like a good place.
