My name is Sarah, i'm 21, married, a college student, a server, and mommy to a 1.5 yr old sweet and stubborn pitbull named Theo. ANYWAYS. I started the Tapout XT workout today because the whole going to the gym a couple times a week is not cutting it for me.
- always have had a little extra somethin in the lower abs / belly area...always.
- my metabolism has slowed down, even though i eat pretty healthy (i'm a health food freak! and i love learning about it)
- i want to confidently wear my clothes and bathing suit
- every wife wants to look sexy for her hubs :D
- YOLO , i wanna be hot!
- health, strength, flexibility (GOAL: splits)
if you have similar goals, lets encourage each other! i'm down for that. this is my first blog. btw. so this may need some getting used to.
Day 1 of Tapout
They mean it when they say "earned with sweat" i felt like every part of my body, especially my abs were getting out toxins. I had to take a couple 30 second breaks, and find ways to make my house comfortable to work out in. but i got a great lower back, ab, and arm work out. i have a feeling that my arms are going to look ripped after this. im so weak in my upper body and abs so it was truly a challenge. im happy to report that i did complete the GRINDER! :D big smile on my face. for those of you who dont know what that is, its 10 wide armed push ups, 10 jump ins (bring your feet in with a burst and then go back to plank), 9 tricep push ups, 9 jump ins, 8 wide armed... and so on until you reach 1! and it took me like.. awhile but i got through it!!! and i'm very proud. The instructor seems to really care about the people at home trying their hardest at this, which i love. Im gonna need it. i took before pics so maybe i'll post those someday. i also want to post videos someday too. but for now this is good :)
Best wishes for everyone on here making an effort to improve their bodies and health! GO GET IT!
