It’s finally summer weather here in the Chicagoland area, so I got out my shorts that I haven’t seen for 2 years (last summer I was in my post-pregnancy clothes). They don’t fit! Well, I can zip them, but they are definitely too tight, so, it’s time to get T-Tapping again.
After the T-Tapp 60 Day Challenge ended a few months ago I fell off the wagon and haven’t exercised much. I know that I need to make it a part of my daily life, not just to fit into my shorts but to help with different health challenges I have such as varicose veins, arthritis, diverticulosis, and hormonal imbalances.
So, I’m back to my favorite exercise program. T-Tapp is named after the founder Teresa Tapp. She has figured out specific exercises that give you the most comprehensive workout in the least amount of time. So, I say to myself, “Can I give 15 minutes to this today?” There is really no excuse to say no. I don’t have to leave the house, get a babysitter, or spend an hour on it. I don’t even change my clothes!
The first thing I did when I first considered T-Tapp was read the book Fit and Fabulous in Fifteen Minutes. There I learned what’s different about T-Tapp and why you can really see results with only doing a 15-minute workout. Then I got the DVD called Basic Workout Plus. It includes the workout straight through but also a slowed-down version of it explaining how to do each move. Doing the moves correctly is crucial in T-Tapp if you want to see results. That’s one thing that’s so different about it compared to running, biking, aerobics, etc. where you are just trying to keep moving for a set amount of time.
If you’re curious, check out the T-Tapp Website and try out some of the videos (“try before you buy”). Let me know if you have any questions. I’ll let you know next Tuesday if I have lost any inches yet!
