All it takes is three minutes a day to change your life!
It takes more than only fitness to improve your outlook and maintain a mindful life—exercising your brain is just as important as working out the rest of your body! Focusing on your own self-care and working daily to consciously change your mindset will result in increased optimism, thoughtful ideas and introspection, and feelings of empowerment.
Health and fitness junkie Sandy Joy Weston had a goal to create a book and guide that allows you to redirect your thoughts in a positive, focused manner. This book is the culmination—lighthearted and fun, it presents easy ways to learn a few simple changes you can make in your life, and why these will help you enjoy life more. From her inspired power statements, to the proposed action plans and goal-setting, plus games and prompts to really delve into what motivates you, you'll learn more about yourself than expected, plus, you'll be prepared to hold yourself accountable.
After many years of hands-on research and collaboration with top professors, Sandy has put together a 90-day guide book and journal, written for the everyday person to help get their head in the game and see results instantly. Train your head, and your body will follow.
This is a combination of a love and passion for fitness, food, science, spirituality, positive psychology, and people, all rolled into one. All our habits, everything we want, is because we believe we’ll feel better once we have it. Sandy will teach you to feel better first, which will better allow you to reach your goals.

Bringing fun, healthy Latin flair to busy American kitchens!
Most people associate healthy cooking with boring taste and flavorless foods, but Leticia is on a mission to prove that healthy eating not only can be absolutely delicious, but also that food is medicine, and that by living a healthy lifestyle you can take control of your health and of your life.
Through the American Diabetes Campaign, Leticia sees first-hand the dietary problems that contribute to this and many other lifestyle diseases, particularly in the Hispanic community here in the US and in Latin countries globally. She quickly realized that once Latinos move to the US, their habits change for the worse, along with their health. “We no longer shop at a farmers market or cook homemade meals. Instead, we shop at big chain stores and buy pre-packed foods. The road from a healthy Latin culture to the North American table became a tough one somewhere along the way.”
Utilizing healthful, nutritious ingredients like nuts, grains, seeds, herbs, spices, beans, fruits, and vegetables, these tried and true favorites include classics like arroz con pollo and quesadillas (with a healthy twist), to lesser-known (but still traditional) dishes like grilled shrimp with Caipirinha vinaigrette and wild rice salad with mango and shrimp.
The good news is that maintaining a healthy diet has never been easier, precisely because of the influence of the Latin culture in this country. Award-winning author Leticia Schwartz will introduce you to new and improved Latin recipes to enjoy without compromising on flavor!
