Most everyone who knows me knows how much I LOVE T-Tapp workouts.
I firmly believe in the techniques Teresa Tapp teaches. I also recently have begun trying to change up my workouts and I only have a small collection of T-tapp..some of which I can barely do!!! But, I can't work on those every single day.
Today, I stumbled across a Leslie Sansone ~Walk at home 5 mile Fat Burning Walk ~ DVD. It wasn't expensive at Sam's Club, so I figured I would try it. It has mile markers so you can choose one, two, three, four or five miles. I figured, I would try for one mile.
I liked it right away...and as we worked that first mile, I tweaked, using T-Tapp principles ..just little things that are now practically second nature to my mind.
I walked one mile...and the video segued right into the next one, so I kept going. I had no trouble with the breathing, the steps...and I kept going...all the way through five 12 minute miles! THEN, after the cool down stretches, I got on the gazelle while I listened to the interview at the end of the DVD.
I am delighted with this find. What I hope to do is alternate this (and perhaps others of Leslie Sansone's) with the T-Tapp, continuing to use the T-Tapp techniques.
I attribute T-Tapp training with the fact that I could DO this routine. I never got breathless. I never hurt...and except for one step that I stayed confused on.(.mind understood but body acted like it was a foreign language..but I will get it next time) I was able to do EVERYTHING.
I am just in love with this...and am a believer! Thanks to everyone who has mentioned the Leslie Sansone products along the way (I have no idea who you are!).
SO, THANK YOU, Teresa Tapp and THANK YOU Leslie Sansone!

I have been feeling REALLY good lately. Last visit to chiropractor was interesting..I don't think she could find anything that needed adjustment!
In an effort to up my exercise levels, I have been trying different workouts that I already have in my possession. Most are from T-Tapp...a program that I LOVE and that I credit with WHY I feel so good.
That said, I think I am going to be working a lot harder with the one I tried today for the second time. I don't do well with things that require floor work. I used a stopwatch to time myself in and out when I had to skip parts I knew I couldn't manage ..yet. I tried nearly everything, but it sure shows me how much I need to work on! YIKES! I timed 63 minutes of a 67 minute workout...and some of the exercises, I only could do a couple of times rather than keep up with Teresa.
I figure, though, that with perseverance, I will eventually build up the muscles and stamina...and master the all important form, to do this workout through...someday!

Yesterday I wore a jacket that I have had for a while..but yesterday, I could wear it with all the front hooks done up...could even sit comfortably with it hooked. It was a nice surprise.
Here is the pic I took...then couldn't find. Thanks to my daughter for helping me with the technology.

I was so pleasantly surprised this afternoon. I have a jacket, not new, that I wear as dress clothes. I bought it on sale (a GOOD bargain) but it didn't fit exactly...I pretty much had to wear it open.
Today, I put on my jacket and hooked all the hooks right up the front!!! WOW! Progress.
I took pictures after I got home....SAW them on the camera, but they seem to have disappeared off the card. Boo hoo!
Well, my pictures may have disappeared, but the progress I have made is there for all to see! Will try the pic thing again later.
