Iím not sure what happened, but T-Tapp snuck into my life. In January, I picked up a copy of Fitbody. It seemed to have a lot of articles on fitness and it was a new magazine for me. When I opened the magazine, I was disappointed that most of the articles seemed to surround this exercise program called T-Tapp. I was not impressed. I thought the author promised too much for what seemed to be relatively easy exercises. What really intrigued me was the DVD that came with the magazine. I read a couple of articles and put the magazine aside. It took me over a month to watch the DVD.
The DVD surprised me. Teresa explained her background. She provided instructions on a few exercises and explained how her method changed simple exercises into multi-muscle exercises. I was surprised at how easy it was to activate my back muscles by simply rolling back my shoulders. During the month that I played around with the DVD and the magazine articles, I discovered Hoe Downs. I learned about the improvement to oneís blood sugar. As a person with Crohnís Disease, I was intrigued that it was reported to help with IBS, which has many similar properties to my own disease.
I started doing Hoe Downs. Within the week, I was trying to learn more. Hoe Downs were hard to complete, but I felt good doing them. I watched the free exercise clips on the T-Tapp website. During part of this time, I was at a work conference. I did Hoe Downs and two or three other exercises everyday. I spent a lot of time on the T-Tapp website. I ordered Teresaís book while I was gone. When I returned, I was able to slide into pants that were painful to wear before the conference. I know this to be true; because I tried on several pairs of pants to be sure that I only brought comfortable clothes with me. I was in shock. I did not adhere strictly to a diet while I was at the conference. In fact, I did the Hoe Downs hoping that it would counteract a couple of rather indulgent meals.
I did not really believe that my body would change doing those few exercises. I did the exercises because they felt good and it was challenging. As a former AFAA Instructor, I taught step aerobics, kickboxing and floor aerobics for several years. I love the fancy choreography because it makes you think. T-Tapp provides the same mental stimulation without the negatives.
I am very sorry that I did not measure my body. Iím not sure how many inches Iíve dropped, but I know itís enough to pull out my slimmer pants. So, I am guessing that it is close to one pantís size. I was comfortably wearing size 10 and larger 8ís. Today, I am wearing most of my size 8ís. My only regret was that I did not measure or truly pay attention to what I was doing and how much. I played around with T-Tapp over a three week period and was rewarded with a reduction in my waist and firmer hips and legs.
So, I am ready to begin an earnest and mindful T-Tapp journey. I am waiting for my coupon (Fit and Fabulous in 15 minutes) to reach the T-Tapp office, so that I can take advantage of the reduced prices. I plan to kick off this journey by participating in the upcoming 60 day challenge. I personally find Teresaís video explanations much easier to follow. The book is great for reminding me of the pointers, but I need the assurance of watching her movements on video to be sure that my form is adequate.
So, T-Tapp has become very important to me. It makes me feel good. I sneak in KLT, butt tucks, and strong upper body alignment throughout the day. I am so thankful that Iíve found this exercise program.
