update t-tapp

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

Well....since my last blog, I missed a t-tapp workout for Saturday and on Monday (yesterday)-too much going on-at least that is my story and I'm sticking to it:)

However, I completed the basic plus workout today and added the arm sequence, the lunge sequence and added a new one- the balance sequence minus the puppet pulls. There seems to be alot in remembering for the moves. But, I will get there...slowly but surely.

I have not lost any inches yet. It has been two weeks today, since I began. I think the book says that you can lose in two wks but I haven't so far. But, then I did miss about 3 work outs. However, my DH asked if I was continuing to use wts since he thought my arm muscles looked more defined! I told him no that for right now the wts are on hold since that is what Teresa recommended. At least I will be sure that it is these workouts that create the difference in what I am seeing/experiencing. That was exiciting to hear! My goal for my arms is to lose an inch in my upper arms and be toned and defined without bulk. We will see!

I found this interesting from the book. It was a question from someone on whether you have to diet to get good results. Interestingly enough, she said "No'. In fact, Teresa Tapp recommended that you do not diet at all during the first few wks of starting the workout. However, I am trying to eat healthy and follow the principles of the flatbelly diet from Prevention. Teresa does suggest later to follow what she refers to as God Made/Man Made Food Plan. Basically, you eat God-made foods for two days and then you can eat man-made foods on the 3rd day. Interesting.

    Most people equate "diet" with "starve" or "cut back on your food" so she's right, you absolutely do not want to do that when you are starting out on a new workout program! (or anytime for that matter..)

    But eating HEALTHY is ALWAYS a good idea - so deciding to start at the same time you start working out is certainly a great idea.

    The 2/1 is an interesting concept - as long as you are careful about your definition of "man made". Kind of like the calorie cycling concept (which is kind of fun too...)

    Good luck!
