Just wanted to add my story. I have done the T-Tapp workout on and off for a few years. This year my friend and I committed to start in January together (we are both in our 50's). Even though we are in different towns, we started on the same day and email each other every day to relate our progress and encourage each other. We did the 14 day boot camp, then did 5 weeks of every 2nd day work out, then went to every 3rd day. We both noticed a tightening up of our upper body and legs and the great feeling of working out. Then, I broke a bone in my foot last Sunday. The next day I realized my workout routine would have to be put on hold. After a day on crutches I realized how lucky I was to have 2 months of T-Tapp exercise under my belt because hobbling around on the crutches and lifting my body with my arms was made so much easier after T-Tapping. All that arm work, T-Tapp twists and especially those leg lifts with balancing on one leg totally prepared me for these next 8 weeks. It also reinforced the importance of being as physically fit as possible.
Also, I am in a house of 8, including children and parents-in-laws. I usually do the workout early, so I use the audio CD in my bedroom so I don't disturb the rest of the house. Just wanted you to know how useful the CD is to me.
I thank Teresa and the T-Tapp workout for helping me through a physically demanding time and look forward to getting back into my T-Tapping routine.
If I might add, having a T-Tapp buddy starting at the same time made all the difference.¬† Some mornings I would have stayed in bed and easily talked myself out of a workout but knowing my friend would be dragging herself out of bed, pushed me into doing the same.¬† I usually do the Primary Back Stretch with my eyes closed because I'm so tired, but by the time I've finished them, I'm revitalized and so glad that I got up and I really started enjoying the rest of the workout.¬† I also have a desk calendar on my dresser where I circle my T-Tapp days once the workout is complete.¬† There is great satisfaction and pride in seeing all those circles accumulate over the weeks.
Another motivation for staying fit is that I am the primary caregiver for elderly parents.¬† I have to be strong enough, physically and mentally, to care for them.¬† I also see where inactivity in their lives has lead to health issues that could have been avoided.¬† The old saying, "Use it or lose it" applies to both body and mind.
