Jane fonda two and a half
Jane Fondas Workout Book by Jane FondaOh-My-God! Knew about the book and her success with the burn but my introduction to Fonda World has primarily been through gossip magazines (affairs, marriages, divorces, relations with father, Hanoi this and that, her religious bent etc. - ala People Magazine and Larry King) in the 90s. Klute and The China Syndrome were great films.
My favorite exercise and self-care book has always been a small-number Transformation - The Complete Beauty Book by Bebe Mukherjee (an Indian author; published by Rupa and Co, 1992 ) but Ive never been disciplined about it.
So when I was at an old book store a few weeks ago getting To Kill A Mocking Bird and a P.D. James book, I got this on a fluke as a trophy even though I need some serious weight-losing too! Ive been on this yo-yo of being very thin a couple of years (105 pounds was the leanest number, especially the years I had a stressful job) and then going very fat the next couple (190 pounds was the fattest I was) and from being healthy thin 4 years ago to right now being between 145-150 pounds.
Generally speaking lets just say that theres no fad I havent read about but in the good old days, I didnt follow anything other than reducing sugars and making exercise a routine (jogging while watching a TV show for an hour).
But Im not 20 or 30 anymore so its harder to get thin because metabolism is slow and motivation even lower but the fact is that as Fonda emphasizes in the book - for me, exercise has never been a priority, or self-service has never been a top goal - and it has to be to get healthy thin - and there has to be a sustained commitment to it.
Well I opened the book today because Ive been feeling puffed, heavy and have this paunch that is ridiculous, so something had to change. I opened the book, went on reading (its written in a nice manner - surprise for me - I thought it would be a nonsense celebrity book, its not. Instead of being a patronizing condescending know-it-all, Fonda actually is gentle and forceful in advice but never Gwyneth Paltrow if you know what I mean!).
Of course her warmup is meant to get every muscle in the body moving, and it did - tiring me out, so much so that I went straight to cooling down exercises!!!! This is what happens when you sit on the couch in front of a computer finishing one book and another, having a sabbatical only for a job and a cup of tea a few months!
The good part is that since Ive exercised before and have always been flexible, the body remembers it all and will catch up soon enough. The aim of course is not to do what Fonda is doing on the cover - rather its to get thin in a healthy manner (have a flat stomach, legs that dont look and feel like log of woods and a single chin!).Lets see what dividends hard work brings!
(Addendum: 26th Aug.: It would have been good if Ms. Fonda had also written that all of the exercises between warm up and cool down are for toning a body that had already lost weight - and NOT FOR THOSE TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT - because guess what? I have pain in my ribs, abdomen, tire all around because I swung my arms as Ms. Fonda suggested - I dont know why i forgot the lesson from other exercise books - first lose weight, then try to fix spots and Fondas book, though good, is for fixing spots, not losing weight)

Jane Fonda in the ’60s and ’70s
J ane Fonda has ruined me. I never want to interview anyone under the age of 80 again. Fonda was preparing to promote her new film, Book Club , in which she plays one of four women who have reached a certain age, read Fifty Shades of Grey in their book club, and decided to do something about their passions. Then puritanism crept in. But I think there are going to be more women-centric movies, like Book Club , now. Jane Fonda was born in , the daughter of the actor Henry Fonda, and while her life was socially privileged, her home life was agony, and her mother, Frances Ford Seymour, killed herself in a psychiatric hospital. Jane herself was also sexually abused and in her memoirs she writes movingly about the concept of disembodiment — how it took her until the age of 62 to fully inhabit her own body.
Whether in a leotard and a thick pair of leg warmers or stunning on the red carpet in fitted gowns, Jane Fonda has never been shy about her body. And the star made no exception when she dished with Britain's Hello! The pair have been together for two and a half years. Fonda met Perry while recuperating from knee replacement surgery; since moving in together, the two haven't been apart since, Fonda said. Fonda -- who has been married three times, most notably to eccentric billionaire Ted Turner -- told Hello! I absolutely wanted to discover that before dying. It has happened with Richard, I feel totally secure with him.
Hollywood icon Jane says her mother's shocking death - when she was just 12 - was the defining moment of her life. Jane Fonda was playing with younger brother Peter when their mum came home from the mental institution. Refusing to go down to see her is her biggest regret. My brother and I had been upstairs playing jacks. It also led her into the arms of three husbands as she sought the structure she had seen in other families. When her mother was alive, Jane had grown used to her prevailing sadness in the unhappy marriage to her father, Hollywood legend Henry Fonda.
