A Little of This; A Little of That

Yesterday, got up about 4:45 and was out the door by 5 a.m. Had done 8,759 steps by 7:12 so, IF my focus was on 10,000 steps, wouldn't take much more. Didn't go out walking again yet, what I did at home brought me to 10,455. Shows me I don't sit as much as I sometimes think I do.
This morning, thought I'd change up. Fitness is not just about cardio. It's about strength, balance, flexibility as well. I've got all the dvd's yet, one of my favorites is Turbo Jam. Went down to the sun-room, put on Turbo Sculpt. Never did that one. It's really good! I was looking for a great leg workout and that's it! Funny, with all the weights and toys I have, I don't have free weights anymore. I could use my Indian clubs but, a bit awkward. Going to use them next time since I now know the program. Even without, really good legs!
Results of the first week of my "Tap Into Your Ideal Weight" live and local program!!! A few of the women emailed me, said they didn't do all the home-play, blah, blah, blah, so I sent an email out telling them I'm not their mommy and they're not bad and not going to be punished ~ so one thing we worked on is "guilt". I've been doing this work long enough to know that, when working with the mental/emotional, that ol' monkey mind is NOT feeling safe and will be chattering in the ear giving ANY reason to not continue. It really likes people to stay JUST the way they are, even if it kills them (and, obesity can kill you).
So, EVERYone showed and thanked me for the email. Many said it took the burden off. They were feeling guilty. One did say, she was tapping on "loving and honoring myself completely"... and said she'd messed up on her food program yet, no beating herself up as she would have done normally. That's a HUGE biggie for her! More about her in a bit.
A few women said they'd eliminated 4-5 pounds!!! (Funny how THEY are the ones most skeptical still). Many said that there were times they would normally eat yet, just didn't feel to. They were more aware of what was going into their mouths, when and why.
A few said it wasn't the tapping, but other things we worked on ~ which is fine. Whatever works. lol Personally, I KNOW the tapping enhances and breaks/eliminates the blockages in the system to where we CAN have the awarenesses.
These classes were SO much different than last week's. Last week you'da thought I had
shanghaied them and forced them to be there instead of them voluntarily coming and PAYING!
This week the energy was SO much higher, the participation SO much better. Last week, couldn't even hear what they were saying; this week they WANTED to talk about results! How cool is that?
Oh, the woman I mentioned earlier wanted to work on stress. Now, understand, there are more aspects than just one. We could tap on "stress" in general yet, we found what else she did when she was stressed. First off, her main thing is, when she's stressed, she eats a full carton of ice cream. This week, she had a MAJOR situation come up and, instead of ice cream, she went for brown rice. O.k., big step and, SHOPPING! What she did was exchange one addiction for another so, we tapped on and examined alternatives including remaining "calm and serene". I also gave her some home-play to do for stressful situations.
Other things we worked on were "food as rewards", frustration, anxiety and more. It was a full 90 minutes of tapping, focus and laughter.
Lowest price ever is still good for the teleclasses beginning the first week of Sept. There's a Tue. evening class as well as a Wed. a.m. teleclass. If you're Pasadena, Ca. local, might consider coming to that class being held on Wed. evenings. Now, do this ONLY if you've been frustrated at being on the "lost weight/found weight" roller coaster or, TRYING to stay on a food program through willpower. I can tell you, if you are an emotional eater... it's tough to do it that way! Your body/mind (lil monkey inside) is not use to not having those "comfort foods" and will feel deprived when it thinks it "can't" have. It's always better to be able to say "no, I really don't want that right now" and really know it's true!
