Sometimes You Need to Take Some Time to Reflect to Rebuild
Getting Back To Basics
We all hit a point where we need to take some time off, even me. I promised to start up my monthly newsletters and then ~poof~ January is gone. Sometimes life steps in and instead of feeling guilty, we need to just step back and realize that it's time to simplify and get back to basics. For me, even though I'm dedicated to fitness, I hit my own wall and I needed to take some time off - I didn't do any exercise for almost a month. What I realize now is that even though we might gain an inch or pound or two, the value of honoring, caring for, and listening to ourselves is more important.
Baby Steps Make Big Steps
Some days, it was all I could do to get up and do some basic back stretches or tuck & press; on a good day I could muster up Primary Back Stretch with a curl the core, shoulders back and some head rocks. Even my CRT Brushing program took a back seat for a while. But after a rest, I'm back! Once I took away the guilt (but not all those yummy holiday carbs) I found that my mind-body connection came back quickly, I wanted to do a little more each day, and wow - skin brushing really does create smooth skin…and it comes right back. I think I also got to get in touch with how a new T-Tapper feels.
All In The Family
One of the more heart-warming things that happened for me over the month was courtesy of my younger sister. Who wants to listen to their older sister tell you what to do when it comes to exercise? My sister has always been a swimmer and bicyclist, she's a short torso/long leg so she's always looked slim. But now, she's a mom as well as working hunched over patients as she performs mammograms. My sister started using TappCore's Minute Moves and she only does 4-reps because she's so short on time. She's even roped the other physicians and oncology staff into her mini-workouts--and they all love it. But what really tickled my funny bone was when my sister told me that alternating TappCore Minute Moves, swimming, biking, and the Basic Plus workout has taken her from the size 12 she maintained with daily swimming/biking down to a size 4! And her fellow oncology team members all reported that they gained none of the usual holiday pounds! What's best of all is that they were able to fit this into their regular life schedule - and that's what T-Tapp is really all about, it's a workout for people who have a full-time life!
Two Exciting Announcements
Buddy was a tail-wagging success in his first daytime TV appearance on NBC on a show that broadcast in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. I was so proud of my workout buddy that I'm extending the discount on TappCore. Normally this DVD is $19.95, but you can buy it up until February 14th for $10 and I'll pay the shipping! Buddy really is the star and I'm proud to be his partner! For "all y'all" in the Atlanta area, look for me and maybe even Buddy on Good Day Atlanta on Fox - Wednesday February 6 in the 8 am hour!! This is my fourth appearance with them and I love being a guest on this upbeat show.
Kitty's been hard at work and has also booked Buddy and me on Every Day with Marcus and Lisa on the Familynet Channel on Thursday February 7 at 11 am (see the www.t-tapp.com for affiliates). And Thursday evening we'll be on the radio with our good friends Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy - they are hilarious (and cute too!). Check it out at www.drfitnessandthefatguy.com. The show airs at 7:30 pm Eastern time.
We're doing a full day of fitness and fun in Atlanta at Cobb Center on the 9th. If you bought Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes, bring your book to get in free for the seminar and exercise clinic - just pre-register on the Web site (www.t-tapp.com) under Events. We need to know how many people will be there! Last year we turned people away and came back for a second visit. I'm happy to autograph your book too! This is going to be a great day and Buddy will be with me so we can all get a great workout and share some special tricks to make T-Tapp even more fun.
