If a prize existed for the number 1 yo-yo t-tapper I would have surely got one! Not that I feel great pleasure addmitting that, but this is just true. Regrettably.
Coming back to t-tapp was difficult. It felt like my body was taking revenge for being neglected and showed all its stinginess trying not to let go of even half an inch .... Then, finally it understood that this time it is for real The turning point was the moment Charlotte's video became available on the site. First several days I could not watch it and later I learned about the crash of the site (or whatever) that hosted it. Then, a miracle happened: I clicked on the video and instead of just playing it downloaded! I tried this several times later and the best I could get was just watching the video online. Anyway, now it is in my iPOD and any time I feel like I do not want to exercise I watch it! At times just thinking about the video helps! Thank you, Charlotte, so much! And thank you, Teresa, for making this video available. It is so inspiring! Agree with those who say there is no way you do not lose with t-tapp. Sooner or later you will, provided you are consitent. Consistency! This is my word number one now
I did not sign up for the Lady Bug challenge, but decided to do it anyway. Also, I am doing OIP/HF twice a day like Michelle once advised me to do (but I had never been consistent )
I have then looked through my emails where I saved some great tips from Sherry, Lannette, Dan and others and have now been doing the following sequence suggested by Sherry:
OIP on the floor for 20 pelvic tilts
Transverse ab breath with hands over head for at least 4 reps
Transverse ab breath with hands on rib cage for at least 4 reps; if you can't keep your BB down during the inhales, just try as hard as you can
OIP for 20 tilts again (you should feel OIP with much more intensity this time)
Tush high, lower abs tight, tight, tight pulling the BB in and to the spine, press your knees together and then back out (the "don't flop 'em" move) for 20 reps
Before the "don't flop 'em" move I add elevators and do 8 full frogs at the end of the sequence.
Well, I have completed a 4-day BC doing LadyBugs Standing, had a day off yesterday and this morning I measured only the waist and abs. An inch from the waist and two inches from the abs are gone! In such a short period of time! Well, I did BCs in the past but never had so great results in just 5 days. I am sure that doind the above mentioned stand alone sequence twice a day contributed greatly to the results.
This is a powerfull sequence and I would encourage everybody to give it a try
