Fitness Challenge #1 Wrap-Up

Today ends the 6-week fitness challenge. I did not do all I hoped for as far as exercising goes, so I didn’t reach my goal. But I’m not giving up! I did lose 2 pounds and 2 1/4 inches. For the next 7 weeks, I’m going to be careful what I eat and exercise when I can (try to do 3 full T-Tapp work-outs a week). Then, I’ll start up a new Fitness Challenge on New Year’s Day! Please plan {Read More}

I Choose Joy! 6-Week Fitness Challenge #1, Week 6

  This is the last week of the challenge!  Can I do 4 work-outs this week?  I sure hope so!  Last week I did two–one should count for double since it was at the T-Tapp clinic.  I was so sore the next day!  The clinic was great, though, and I’m once again thrilled that I use this incredible mind-body work-out.  One way I could describe it is that most exercise is mindless.  You just try to work your body in a {Read More}

I Choose Joy! 6-Week Fitness Challenge #1, Week 5

  I had high hopes for this fitness challenge, but it seems that going into high drive and losing a size or two wasn’t meant to be at this time.  Although I have “exercised” sometimes 4 times a week for the last month, I haven’t done 4 full work-outs a week.  I haven’t done enough to make a change.  I have not lost a single pound or inch in the last month.  But at least I haven’t gained any! Here’s {Read More}

I Choose Joy! 6-Week Fitness Challenge #1, Week 4

  We had a wonderful 50th Birthday party for my husband last night!  I surprised him with having several of his family members do some performances for him.  I love that so much of our family is musical!  Four of my kids recited poems as well; they work on their public speaking each week at our ICC class.   And I sang the 2 songs that I sang at our wedding reception (“Embraceable You” and “Misty”) with my oldest son {Read More}

I Choose Joy! 6-Week Fitness Challenge #1, Week 3

  Well, I did exercise 4 times last week–but not 4 full work-outs.  On the days that I was still feeling the effects of my cold, I made myself at least do one or two T-Tapp moves (hoe-downs, OIP/HF ).  This week:  4 full work-outs! I’ve plateaued (is that how you spell that word?) on losing inches, so it’s a bit discouraging right now.  Whenever I go through these times, I love to watch Charlotte Siems’ video to get inspired once {Read More}

I Choose Joy! 6-Week Fitness Challenge #1, Week 2

  How did you do last week?  Did you exercise 4 times?  I didn’t.  Yes, it’s true.  The first week of the challenge, and I already didn’t reach the goal,  I got sick with a bad cold on Friday and missed a couple of days,  so, from now on I will concentrate on getting more workouts in during the earlier part of the week! One thing I did do was take a couple of long walks.  It was very enjoyable {Read More}

I Choose Joy! Fitness Challenge
