So. I've started working out. I suck at working out, but recently I've grown really tired of my big belly. My sister turned me on to a workout she found in Woman's Day magazine, and I'd been doing that fairly regularly, until my Dequervain's Tendinitis started really hurting, then I had to stop because of the pain. I had been reading about Summer's success with the T-Tapp program, so I ordered the video called T-Tapp Basic Plus.
Three things appealed to me about the T-Tapp program 1) it works quickly 2) it works whether or not you have a good diet and 3) the Basic Plus video is a 15 minute workout. Of course, I do want to have a good diet, but I think it's something that will have to come in time, and I'd prefer to fit into my clothes in spite of it, and T-Tapp is a way to make that happen, so I decided to try it.
The initial phase of the program is called a "boot camp" where you do the 15 minute workout a certain number of days in a row. I decided to try and lose three sizes (I'm currently a 12/14 in pants size, depending on the style of the pants, so my eventual goal is to be down to a 6/8, but I would be happy with 8/10), so my boot camp lasts for 14 days. Today was day 8 of the 14 day boot camp.
I absolutely love this workout. It's like morning coffee without the caffeine. I feel so much better, so much stronger. I can wake up feeling headachey and lousy, and after a quick 15 minute workout, I feel ready to start the day. The workout is very challenging - you have to work really hard to maintain the T-Tapp position, but about 5 minutes into the workout I feel warmed up and ready to finish. The "Plus" part of the title is an extra move call the Hoedown which is supposed to really help your body process sugar effectively. I love it. I love, love, love it.
I looked in the mirror last night and my butt was GONE! Flat as a pancake. Then, as an added bonus, I was able to fit into my size 12 jeans for work today. I am officially declaring this workout Awesome.
