10 Days to Smoother Skin & Flatter Abs
by Kayla Howard
During this month of June I've had some pretty fun changes take place on my body. Thankfully, I took pictures! I'm not usually good at taking pictures, but the T-Tapp 60 Day Challenge "forced" me. After I started noticed even more results, I took a third picture–and boy! Was I surprised!! (yes, that's me in the picture above.)
A few months back you may have heard me mention the idea of trying a different T-Tapp workout each month. I did do that as that is what my Inner Circle Coaching Program became. For me, having a different workout for each month has been really refreshing! I've been asked to share what my results were using the different workouts. Unfortunately, I've found it hard to measure that.
As I workout each month, I do about 15 personal Skype sessions. That works out to be about 4 per week. At that amount, they are my workouts and I rarely do anything in addition to those. Basically it means that I am getting great strength training, and good muscle activation because we always work slowly to concentrate on form, but it also means I lose a little of the cardio aspect you get from doing a workout to tempo.
Enter June and Step Away the Inches.
During T-Tapp's Step Away the Inches and Step it to the Max routines, continuous stepping is the name of the game. Now for 60 minutes, every time I do a personal session, we are actually moving a bit more—no more stop and discuss this—it's keep it moving and let's talk!
This is exactly what my body was craving to burn off that extra layer over all those strong muscles I've been building in previous months.
Pictures are the best way to show this story. But there is even more to the story than just Stepping Away the Inches. A secret magic ingredient for quick "inch loss" on my body was the addition of T-Tapp's alfalfa!
The most frequent, and logical question I've been hearing from people who know me is, "I thought you couldn't take alfalfa." That's true, I tried for years to take T-Tapp's alfalfa, I have always said I LOVED everything that it did for me except that it caused my skin to breakout. Being slightly vain, I chose to not take it. Recently I inadvertently discovered that it was actually cows milk that was causing my acne and when I removed it from my diet, my skin became exceptionally clear. I'm still baffled as I think on it because I-know-that-I-know-that-I-know that when I took alfalfa I got extra acne, and I have no answers for why that was, but it seems to no longer be the case.
Now my skin is loving alfalfa, and my dimples are vanishing at an astonishing rate!
So I wanted to share my 10 workout schedule with you, and my alfalfa consumption. During this time I started taking 8-10 alfalfa per day. The reason it's easy for me to do so many is simply because I get up earlier than most people, (3am) so I can down an extra round. How much alfalfa you should take is up to you. People consume anywhere from 3-16 in a day depending on their needs. It is best if you can take it 3 or 4 times per day, keeping it in your system. You will get the most benefit that way. However, taking it when you will take it is most important. I'm going to start keeping some in my purse for when I'm out and about.
Some of the other positive things I notice when I take T-Tapp's alfalfa is that my digestion works even better. Since I exercise a lot, I don't have much trouble in that department anymore, but alfalfa is very soothing to the digestive track and I notice. I've also noticed my skin getting smoother, my moods are much more happy and stable and of course, my cellulite and inflammation are vanishing.
