    Well.. I can not tell a lie. I was on vacation this last week. I woke up last Sunday with a sore throat and have been sick all week. I did not do ANY workouts. I went back to work this morning, not being able to hear out of my left ear. Came home and put a warm compress to that ear along with one of those herbal things that can go in the freexer or microwave. I am happy to say... I can hear again!!!
    I am not going to push myself, so I will start my workouts again on Tuesday. Tomorrow is just going to be a long day.

    Hope all is well with everyone! Keep up the workouts!

    I am loving all my fascia stretches and parts of the barre-warm-up, doing all of them carefully. Gentle kick-outs and clap-aways once in a while but not after housework or a car ride when my back is already feeling a bit raw.

    As I always say, T-Tapp is God-Given and God Guided. I am honored to have the opportunity to share what's been gifted to me. There is so much more woven within each of the T-Tapp exercise and special sequences within the workouts than just a means to lose inches and look good......So good luck....just do your personal best and you WILL continue to repair/rebuild from the inside out and your body will continue to look, feel and FUNCTION better too. - Teresa (April 12, 2018)

        Look at you go. I am so proud of you!! I was reading some old posts the other day (actually someone commented on an older post and it came up as a notification) and you had said "Pick a workout and learn it well. When you get bored with it, pick another an learn it well." This reminded me that I wanted to make this year the year that I learn T-Tapp workout by workout...well hopefully it is never too late LOL

        Alisa,

        That is how I learn and that works for my brain. I wanted to learn and master all the elements, when I first started and even I hear it, my body does not respond to 20 commands and activation at the same time. Maybe someone can learn and master their workout with rotation daily, it is just not me. I can endure boredom if I can activate.

        I did not do a workout yesterday as I don't want to pressed too much... I have a lot of stress these days and I will have more, and I do not want to overtrain (turn out a good idea, as this morning, I had signs of getting sick, but I think I am good now.

        Around Day 5, I started activating the way I am supposed to be and I started holding activation better instead of just the motion. My muscle memory started kicking back into gear.... I am thinking about continuing today until I am fully activated as what I was able too years ago. So, until I get there, Tempo Arms is to stay... I did this DVD so much that I used to able to recite everything, all the retuck and position was automatic years ago!

        I believe every one of Teresa's workout works. Even More Chair, just 7-8 mins, if you activate everything and push to your max, that 8 mins sequence is sufficient.

        Aurora,

        With T-Tapp I can stick with one workout and be fine until I am bored. I do notice the more I do it, the better I activate and the better I sweat and feel a good muscle fatigue. Plus, like you said, I want to learn it really really well. Workouts from the past, I enjoyed cycling different ones every day.

        I am glad that you are feeling better. I would like to try a BC to see how my body reacts and to see at what point I fatigue and absolutely need a day off. Even thought More 2 is one you can do every day, once I am activating really good with all the moves, I probably won't be able to do it more than 4 days in a row. We will see.

        After my DD disappears, I am going to do Trisch's Chair Champions, as I want to get good with the chair workouts so that I have a good backup.

      We came back from the mountains on Sunday. Lovely nature, so I hiked two days with my husband and sketched quite a lot. School start on Friday so I am continuing to relax for another couple of days. It is hard to get back on track, we have had 90°F and more these past days.

      I am wondering whether I will go back to my 3-4 morning moves or try an EOD schedule in the afternoons. I think that I would need some stepping workouts...Any ideas to help me get going...?

      EDIT: Today, I did the PBS from More 2 and the JT + TTT from its instructional. It felt good! I will be continuing tomorrow: PBS + 2 moves from the instructional.

        Do what makes you happy and what makes you feel good. I am happy for you that you are trying to get in a few moves a day. We all know that some is better than nothing. You've got this!! Some stepping may help with some of the stress, even if you just do half of SATI or PPW. You know what to do

      Feels good to be back, although I always say that and then cannot stay consistent. At least I get a chance every week to start over and give it another try.

      Monday I did More 2 Inst. through Oil Wells, Tuesday my hip was really sore and I went out with the grandchildren so I didn't have time before work. Today, 1st 12 min of TFFS and my CF moves. It feels good to be moving these last couple of days. Hopefully I can keep it up.

      We go on vacation in 2 1/2 weeks so I would like to just feel better before we go, as the beach air increases inflammation for me...for whatever reason.

        GreenGem if only I could keep up with just "something" every day...I cannot seem to stay consistent, but am going to try really hard.

        You will find that "something everyday" that works for you Alisa. Trisch's The Power of Consistency post is a good motivator for me.

      Today, I cleaned all the floors of our house for about 55 min, I had put on my gym clothes and it was a real organic workout. After that, I did the PBS from More 2 and Pull the Weeds and Lunges from More 2 Instructional. It felt really good. I will continue tomorrow.

          I am really enjoying seeing you back at it. I know it hasn't been easy but I am SO PROUD of you!!

          Your consistency is making me jealous and making me want that too I started back today on a quest to find consistency and find that "peaceful place" with T-Tapp.

          XOXO

        Some repetitive arm movements seems to irritate my back so I haven't added my old faves like the butterfly. I will try R/S slowly this weekend and see what happens.

          I watched a couple of moves from the Total slow workout, R/S was one of them.

          Good to know. I watched the first half of the R/S video from Beautiful Basics yesterday. I'm still feeling not quite confident in my balance so I have a chair in front of me that I can grab quickly.

        Yesterday, I did the PBS from More 2, then I did a T-tapp walk for about 20 min and after that I cut ivy in our garden.

          Today I did More 2, my CFF moves for DD and we went for a walk. I had to shorten the walk because my legs were fatigued, but I did enjoy the exercise today.

          I will be 52 in October and just realized that if I stay consistent until my birthday, that will be 6 wks of consistency. I only have my DD class until 9/21ish so I need to really try and be consistent until then. If I don't keep up with doing them every day I forget the sequence and how it goes. And I do like the first 12 min of TFFS, as they help my tushy and hamstrings. I don't have a plan but would like to try a BC just to say I did one and see how I like it or don't. On days off I would still do the first 12 min of TFFS and my DD moves, but nothing else. I need to get past the procrastination, as it isn't getting me anywhere. I have great intentions anytime someone says "lets do a bootcamp" or "lets be consistent together" and every morning I have great intentions, but I push it off until I don't have enough time and have to get ready for work.

          Ok I am done whining LOL But seriously, I am going to try really hard to be consistent these next few weeks.

            My consistency bit is before bed. I will do the workout before I go to bed. If I need to do workout in the morning? It will never happen.

            Aurora,

            I often say while I am sitting at work "I'm going to do such and such when I get home" but it NEVER happens. My CFF/DD moves yes, I will do when I get home. I don't get home from work until 11:30 pm so by then I am pooped plus I am afraid it will give me energy and I will lay there for two hours not being able to go to sleep. My best time is first thing in the morning but I am not a morning person so I am going to try for 11 every morning that way I have time to fit it in without watching the clock, plus it is at the end of my fasting window (IF). I just have to make myself. I may end up making myself do it when I first get up because often I get moving with school work and I am really into something at 11 and cannot break my thought pattern, which is why it doesn't happen. I will know better this week how 11 will work.

        • #12
          Alisa, funny, if I do other forms of exercise or really just ended my work, I will not be able to sleep. However, with T-Tapp, I fall asleep within 10-15 mins without a hitch. So, maybe find one weekend and do the workout at night to see if you really have the post workout jittery or not. Sometimes it is the fear stopping us. I don't get up that early, and once I am up, I have 5000 things to do and workout is not one of them, E V E R, even if I work form home.

          I had at times tried to go a workout during my lunch break, but then, I often have a lot of things to do at my lunch that I ended up not eating or eating at 2-3 pm when I am almost off work. I have to learn when to turn off my work and really stick with just 40 hours a week.

            Great idea. I am definitely going to try that over the weekend just to test it out. In the beginning I would get those post wo gitters so that is what I am judging by. And YES I agree it is fear stopping me from trying it differently. I usually get up anywhere between 7:30 and 8:30, BUT I do not go in until 2:30 either.

            Yes, you need to learn how to turn work off LOL (I only say that because you often talk about how stressed you are). That will be me next year when I am trying to get a job in my new career and find myself working 3 jobs LOL

            My biggest downfall is that I talk myself out of stuff really easy and really quickly. Bad habit.

            Same with me, T-Tapp moves do not cause me to stay up late. In fact, I need to do some of the moves to help me relax my body and release some pains so I can sleep.
