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 certain way (aerobics, running, walking) for a set amount of time. T-Tapp uses very deliberate movements. Form is extremely important, and it requires a great deal of concentration. You get more done in less time because you work 5-7 muscle groups with every exercise. (See the T-Tapp website for more info!)
One thing we talked quite a bit about last week was the soon-to-be-released exercise DVD called Senior Fit. I’m so excited about it! Finally, there will be a great way for older people to work out that is created just for them with their special needs in mind! Teresa Tapp has spent years working on it.
Well, for our last week I want you to join me in making healthy choices this week!
Here’s a recap of our 6-week fitness challenge: Are you ready to lose some inches and get healthier before the holidays? I am! My goal is (was) to lose 1-2 sizes by November 12.
We’re going to keep each other accountable and encourage each other to keep at it by linking up here each Monday. I know I need the challenge spirit to keep me motivated. Exercising is not my favorite thing to do! Link up your blog post telling us how you did the previous week. I’ll share how I did, as well as highlighting a few of you!
If you don’t have a blog, no problem! Just leave a comment here each Monday telling us how you did.
(Also, if you missed the start date, join in with us at any time!)
1. Choose any exercise program and do it 4 times each week for 6 weeks (starting Monday, October 1 and ending Monday, November 12.). Examples of an exercise program are a DVD, gym, class, a 30-minute walk, etc. I’ll be doing T-Tapp, of course! I want the most benefits for the least amount of time invested. 🙂 (Notice, I didn’t say the least amount of effort.)
2. Link up your blog posts each Monday with a report on what and how you did during the previous week (how many work-outs, any inches or pounds lost, benefits to your health). If you don’t have a blog, just leave a comment.
3. Bonus–Add a new healthy habit each week, such as drinking more water, eating more fresh vegetables, getting 10,000 steps with a pedometer, etc.
4. Please follow I Choose Joy! (see sidebar) so that I can remind you to come back here each week to link up your update. Also, please leave a link back here so others can join us! I’ll be posting on my Facebook page throughout the weeks to keep us all motivated — so be sure to Like I Choose Joy! (link in sidebar).
