WLW - Workouts?

I am a creature of habit. Good ones, bad ones... if I fall out of our usual routine then I'm far less likely to continue with the good habits that I have been working on creating. Last week I had the Hearts at Home conference, it was awesome but threw us out of whack. Then I was planning and executing Joe's birthday party which kept me pretty busy. And now we have spring break, Easter, Christine's birthday and the end of the school year all coming up pretty quickly. On top of that we have a lot going on in my family: two sisters expecting and another one getting married at the end of the summer. I am realizing that all of this is wreaking havoc on my carefully constructed routines.

Since I started this part of my weightloss journey several weeks ago I have been working out at the gym with my friend twice a week (with the exception of a couple of times when one or both of our schedules would not allow it). But I am realizing it is not enough. If I want to see results I need to suck it up and put in the time. I am going to start doing T-TAPP at home on the days that I do not go to the gym. I've had success with this workout before but fell out of the habit and have not gotten back into it since before Christine was born.

T-Tapp is a series of copyrighted, sequential movements designed to put the body in proper functional alignment. Its special sequence of comprehensive, compound muscle movement helps establish better alignment as well as increased strength and flexibility of the spine, better neuro-kinetic flow, lymphatic function, and increased metabolic rate. Its physical therapy approach to fitness makes it safe for those with shoulder, hip, knee, neck, and back concerns. Yet, it delivers a challenging workout for all fitness levels!

Here is a video of one of T-Tapp's signature moves:

I typically weigh myself every other day or so. In the last week its been up and down. Its an old school scale so no digital .2 lbs for me, its just the little dial that wobbles back and forth as I try to get it to lean in my favor. Today it read the same as last week.

Please pray that I will not allow the stress and disruption of routine to keep me from doing the things I need to do. I'm not just talking about working out. With all that has been going on the housework has fallen behind and laundry is piled up in my bedroom. I haven't kept my food journal in over a week. Not to mention that I have gotten lax in writing in my prayer journal. I need to reboot and get back to a place of sanity. ;-)

Spend your time and energy in training yourself for spiritual fitness. Physical exercise has some value, but spiritual exercise is much more important for it promises a reward in both this life and the next. This is true and everyone should accept it. 1 Timothy 4:7-9 (NLT)

I can TOTALLY relate! I am such a creature of habit. And if anything happens that causes disruption to my habit, I'm lost. So I will definitely be praying for you. You can do this my friend. It's just time to find new habits ;)
