By , SparkPeople Blogger
Are You Tired and Wired? Your Proven 30-Day Program for Overcoming Adrenal Fatigue and Feeling Fantastic Again by Marcelle Pick MSN OB/GYN NP

Co-founder of Women to Women—one of the first clinics in the country devoted to providing health care for women by women—and the author of The Core Balance Diet, Pick focuses on the root cause of these symptoms: adrenal dysfunction. (Psst... we're giving away five copies of this book on Friday evening.)

Poser: My Life in Twenty-Three Poses by Claire Dederer

. Dederer first tries yoga when she throws her back out while breastfeeding. A decade later, she examines her life through yoga. From the official synopsis: "Poser is unlike any other book about yoga you will read—because it is actually a book about life. Witty and heartfelt, sharp and irreverent, Poser is for anyone who has ever tried to stand on their head while keeping both feet on the ground."

I'm reading "Arms Commander", which is the latest in the long, long Recluce series by L.E. Modestitt Jr., and also "Change Your Brain, Change Your Body" by Dr. Daniel Amen. Both books very different from one another, but excellent reads! Report
God Women and Food Report
_Beethoven's Hair_ Not fitness related, but a really interesting book. Report
Almost finished the last book in the Outlander series, by Diana Gabaldon. I love these books. they are close to 900 pages, but well worth it. I'm on #7 now.
Tired and Wired, sounds like one, I'd like to read. thanks. Report
I'm new at this. How does one enter to win one of the 5 books being given away? I see no "enter to win" or similar button. Report
Thanks for the book list! I've checked out the new Hungry Girl cookbook, but will have to look for the slow cooker one... Report
I just ordered the Hungry Girl Cook Book, I have her other cook books and I love them! I don't usually follow the recipes exactly though, I use them more as a guide for ideas. I have gastroparesis so I have to substitute or leave out a lot of ingredients. Report
I'm rereading the Operation Beautiful book. I think some of those books look really interesting! I like reading books that inspire me and on the other end of the spectrum, intense thrillers. Always something to read! Report
Wonder if they can be bought for the Kindle? Report
love this blog and i got the new 300 cal book at Costco.. Report
I'm currently reading Tommy Europe's Last Ten Pound Shred book. It's awesome and it contains nutrition and work out information. It's a great book for anyone looking to tone up and it offers great advice. Report
"The Program", by Dr. Kelly Traver, is on my nightstand. Just digging in with it, but the focus is our recalcitrant brain: it DOES NOT like change, she offers, showing is wired to maintain the status quo, even when we're trying to adopt HEALTHY changes. She presents the argument that our brain CAN be convinced to accept and even embrace change, and shows how that is possible. When I get through more of it, I'll blog about it on my Sparkpage. Report
Gotta find out more about getting a free copy! I've been trying to figure out how to make it to her clinic (on the wrong coast!) Since its 11am and I'm still in bed but exhausted I'm thinking the book at least would be a good first step! Report
I've been wondering for awhile about the Adrenal Fatigue. I will need to read this one & figure out the solutions. Report
How do you throw your back out breast feeding?

I'm an America's Test Kitchen fan and I love Cooks Illustrated so I'll be getting Slow Cooker Revolution and dusting off my Crockpot! Report
I live in Maine and have been to this clinic. I will be reading," Are you tired and wired",then I shall give it to a friend to read she needs it more than I, but the information from this clinic is totally awesome. Pat in Maine. Report
I have put these on my list of books to get. Especially the crock pot cookbook. Report
