i refuse to go into all my failed attempts to take the reins of my health, this is not what this is new chapter is all about. i've come to the realization that i am so tired of not being able to do things i used to with ease and i have been taking baby steps.
the past few months i've tried to skin brush every time i shower.this ritual manually stimulates my lymph system to release toxins, breaks down cellulite, increases skin elasticity, and exfoliates. not to mention, was a reminder that i should workout lol. then, the past few weeks i've started including a few 15 minute T-Tapp Basic Plus Workouts into my week. Finally, Wednesday I started a fourteen day bootcamp, meaning I will do the 52 minute T-Tapp Total workout consecutively for two weeks!
i created a neat and organized table to check off my progress and it really feels like i should be collecting gold stars like a little kid:)
i felt really strong the first two workouts, but today i felt kinetic awareness in my thighs for the first time and kept a deeper bend and tick butt. also, I FEEL MY LATS!! i really really really have been waiting for that control of my shoulders because now i can pull my shoulder blades completely back in alignment and hold my ribcage up. energy wise, i started feeling like jello after thread the needle and had to really pull it together to have decent form the last ten minutes.
i really love this workout. sure, i am so biased because i know the creator and have been doing it since i was thirteen, but more so i've spoken with hundreds of women of all fitness levels who obtained the most amazing results. personally, this workout has increased my awareness of my body down to muscles i never knew i had, awareness of what i ingest and put on my body, knowledge of how to detoxify and allow the body to rebuild itself, and the most significant lesson that you have to take the path of resistance, that uphill never ending heart wrenching battle, and push yourself until you reach a plateau...rest, and push continuing on until you achieve what you want.
its not even about losing weight.....its about determining how long i'm going to live in the future by committing to my health today.
