By and On Angela
By Angela Lansbury
with Mimi Avins
Over the years, Angela Lansbury has often
been asked, "How do you manage to have so much energy?"
" How do you continue to look so vital?" Now, in her
first book, the internationally renowned star shares her personal
plan for fitness and well-being. In Angela Lansbury's Positive
Moves, Angela presents her own easy-to-use, proven effective
approach to living, one that has served her well and has given
her the virtuality and grace for which she is so admired.
With a carefully designed program for health
and fitness, and a positive attidude, Angela shows how any woman
can enjoy life to the fullest. She outlines her own daily regimen
including a morning routine of gentle exercises and an additional
series of easy movements for any time during the day. She includes
a specific plan for weight control and maintenance that has worked
for her as well as some of her own special recipes and a daily
menu. With wonderful anecdotes about her own often hectic life-style
- both now and in the past - she offers creative suggestions on
using free time with tips about some of her favorite hobbies from
swimming and gardening to taking leisurely baths and spending
time with her grandchildren. And Angela intimately discusses the
changing personal concerns of women and gives practical and reaffirming
advice for projecting glamour at any age.
