I’ve had several questions about my FABULOUS Form Tips offering so I thought I’d explain it in more detail. If you’ve never taken my Beautiful YOU online course, then it can be quite confusing!
Every month in Beautiful YOU, I give form tips for 4 moves from the workout we are focusing on. I’ll use MORE as an example. Each week is a Core Focus that applies to any workout and can be done at any time apart from a workout. There is also a Bonus Focus each week, where I take 4 moves from the workout–for MORE it went like this:
Week 1: I gave in-depth tips on Primary Back Stretch
Week 2: Tips on the short mini-workout MORE Step Away
Week 3: I did tips for MORE Broom (another mini-workout)
Week 4: Tips for MORE Chair (another mini-workout)
There are typically 4 in-depth tips that build upon each other for each move–or in this case, mini-workout. Sometimes there are 3 and sometimes there are 5 tips but 95% of the time there are 4. I spread these over 4 days so you can really “get” the increased muscle activation and connection to get more out of the move. Think of this as an intense form focus for the workout/move!
For Cyber Weekend I am making these sets of tips available for 5 workouts that I have done in Beautiful YOU. So there are sets of tips for 4 moves each for MORE, Basic Tempo (can be used for Basic Workout as well), Healthy Hormones Menopause Management, Senior Fit and a set of tips for 5 moves of LadyBug workout.
In addition to that, I am offering individual move tips–still 4 tips but for just that move vs a set tips for 4 moves. I picked 7 moves that I have heard T-Tappers say they would like to understand more about.
If you purchased the set for MORE, in our example, you would receive 16 tips–4 for each move/mini-workout. You would pace yourself to do these over 4 weeks just like we do in class! Of course you could do one per month if you like and REALLY dig in by focusing 1 week on each tip!
If you picked the individual moves, let’s say T-Tapp Twist, you would receive 4 in-depth tips on that move alone that you could incorporate into your routine as above–over the course of a week or spend a month on it.
This is similar to what I did when I first started T-Tapp. I read in the Must Read Threads about different moves and I would apply those tips to that move in my workout over 1-2 weeks. I really feel that gave me a great foundation!
Okay, I think I’m getting it! But what’s with all the options?!
Option 1 is the individual moves. So if you only want to purchase T-Tapp Twist and Eye of the Tiger, this is what you would select. You would put quantity at 2 and then e-mail me your confirmation and then tell me “I’d like to get T-Tapp Twist and Eye of the Tiger, please!” (Or however you would like to tell me! 😉 )
Option 2 is the set of tips for each workout. If you wanted to get sets for Senior Fit this is what you would select. And as in Option 1, if you wanted 2 sets, you select quantity as 2 then tell me in your e-mail what workouts you want your sets for.
Option 3 is JUST the mp3 of the call that I did for that workout. If you don’t want the written tips but would love to hear the call and work out with it (yes you can and yes many have!) this is your choice. Calls are 1 hour in length plus Q&A if there was any and I dive into several moves from the workout, different moves from the Bonus Focus tips.
Option 4 is if you want the call AND the Bonus Focus tips. I recommend this because it will round out your form focus for the chosen workout.
Option 5 adds a transcript to the call. This is great if you want to follow along with the call, especially if I am describing what I’m doing and it’s not quite clicking. You can read through the transcript and get clarity.
Option 6 is the Bonus Focus tip, the call AND the transcript at a discount from the already discounted price!
Option 7 keeps adding from there 🙂 by adding the schedules to Option 6 (tips, call & transcript) that we used for that workout. With this option you are getting most of the Beautiful YOU class. Of course you’re not getting the interaction nor all the questions that were asked, but you are getting the elemental components of the course with this option. GREAT for a focus on that workout for a month at your convenience!
Option 8 is for you die-hard T-Tappers that want it ALL! 🙂 You can purchase THREE sets of option 7 (tips, call, transcript and schedules) for three different workouts and get an even deeper discount! If you want ALL 5 workouts, you would want to purchase one Option 8 and then the remaining 2 workouts as option 6, quantity 2. If you purchase all 5 I will give you the 7 individual move tips for FREE!
If you were to work out with me in person, it would be $75 for 1 1/2 hours, and you’d have to take your own notes! 🙂 Skype/virtual sessions usually run $55-$67 per hour session, depending upon the sale I’m having. And again, you’d have to take your own notes! These prices enable you to have parts of my brain on FIVE workouts and SEVEN moves, notes already done for you and a recording of what I taught so you can go over it as often as you like! If you LOVE a particular workout, you could do this as a form intensive 2-3 times per year to get even more out of that workout. If you have a workout you’d like to dive into more but don’t quite understand, this will help! If you know you aren’t “getting it” on several moves, these options are for you!
To help you decide:
- Which workout (moves)–what one(s) do you like? Or which one gives you trouble?
- Are Bonus Focus Tips alone enough to get you going? (Options 1 & 2)
- Do you want to work out “live” via a call that you can revisit? (Option 3)
- Do you want the call plus the tips so you can have all the moves I covered? (Option 4)
- Would a transcript of the call increase your understanding? (Option 5)
- Does having all three, tips, call and transcript sound like it would be the most helpful to have ? (Option 6)
- Is the thought of figuring out what to do when overwhelming? Would schedules help? (Option 7)
- Are you a die-hard T-Tapp groupie?! 🙂 Would you like this for three workouts? (Option 8)
That will help you decide which option might be best for you!
If you still have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me and I will do my best to help you find the right fit for YOU!

Do you have a diastasis recti or “Mommy Tummy Gap”? Did you know your “baby” can be 20 (or 30 or 40!) and you can still have a diastasis recti?
Diastasis recti is when the two rectus abdominus muscles (think “6 pack abs” muscles) separate, creating a “tent-like” effect when you do crunches and sit-ups. Some gaps aren’t as wide but still create problems for doing floorwork or getting the ab measurements down due to a weaker core, resulting in less muscle activation.
I receive e-mails and messages asking if it’s safe to do T-Tapp or if there are certain moves to avoid, and most importantly, is there a way to “close the gap”. I had a few ladies test some lessons as I was developing this program, and Mary, one of my testers closed her 4 finger gap to a 1! She was ecstatic and so was I! Krystalle noticed a difference right away and more than one lady mentioned how important learning the tips was to protect their core and the progress they were making.
So just what IS Defeating Diastasis? It’s a 9 week program consisting of 36 lessons with 20 videos demonstrating the techniques and moves–all from T-Tapp workouts as well as encouragement to keep the momentum going. The program takes you from discovering if you have “the gap” and how wide it is to strengthening your core to tips easing you into floorwork. Even if you don’t have diastasis recti, you can use these same tips and moves to strengthen your core for an excellent foundation for better results!
Registration for Defeating Diastasis is now up and we’ll be getting started October 10. We will have a private Facebook group for support and questions. I’m excited to be your coach and your cheerleader!
I can’t promise you’ll close your gap completely in 9 weeks, but I CAN promise that if you do the foundational work you WILL strengthen your core and make gap-closing progress!
Ready to close the gap and gain core strength?!
Let’s do it! Let’s close the gap–with T-Tapp!
What’s better than one BOGO deal?
What’s better than two BOGO deals?
FREE SHIPPING! (Even international!)
I shared about Digest Plus last weekend–and I’ll repeat it–it is THE one supplement I will never go without! It really does the job both for digestive support and anti-inflammatory!
B12 Plus–I started using Teresa’s B12 9 1/2 years ago. I noticed right away improvement over the brand I used before. Improved stamina, less brain fog, more energy–I was impressed!
Then Teresa changed to methycobalamin and I noticed even more improvement! I use a few sprays around 10 a.m. and a few more around 2 p.m. for help with the “afternoon slump”.
This is a GREAT deal! You can get either BOGO deal or BOTH and FREE SHIPPING all around!
Now THAT’S a great Deep Discount Tuesday!
(Sale good until 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, September 20!)
We ALL love a good sale and today, for 6 hours only, you can get TWO bottles of Digest Plus, with FREE shipping (even international!) AND choose the workout of your choice for HALF OFF! YES, even the digital workouts!
I personally LOVE Digest Plus and won’t be without it! I don’t have a gall bladder and had some nasty bile dump issues when I started into menopause–Digest Plus stopped it! Plus it helps decrease bloating when I’m eating out.
Here’s what Teresa shared, with all the details:
Hi Everyone….. tomorrow I am offering a Super Sunday Special for 6 hours – 8:30 am – 2:30 pm EST
In addition to BOGO for Digest Plus with free shipping (including international) you have the opportunity to purchase one workout of your choice at half off (dvd or digital).

Since we expect a lot of phone calls you might get the message machine….if so be sure to leave your name and phone number so Marisa can call you back. If you email her, be sure to identify your Digest Plus order number as well as leave your phone number so she can call you back.
All emails and/or phone messages must be left before 2:31 pm EST.
Last of all, since it is free shipping, if you want to purchase 2 BOGO Digest Plus sets, you can select two workouts of your choice.
Happy Shopping! Digest Plus is a wonderful proprietary blend of Systemic and Digestive Enzymes. It was specially created for me by a renowned master formulator. There is no other digest product on the market as powerful as Digest Plus….and those that are close to same level of ingredients are twice the cost! Without food the systemic enzymes are optimal, with food the digestive enzymes are optimal. This formula is powerful! I even take it with my Premium Blended Alfalfa for optimal assimilation.
You can order your Digest Plus through the webstore HERE!
If you’ve had a workout on your wish list–this is like Christmas coming early! 😀
After a stressful summer, a week away at the retreat and certifications surrounded by a supportive sisterhood and pampering–and good food!–melted the stress away. I literally lost half a size just from the inflammation going down!
Teresa gave us a preview of her two new digital options–a new brushing video called CRT Body Brushing Supreme and another with Moisturizing and Skin Tightening Tips. Both are EXCELLENT!
CRT Body Brushing Supreme is very comprehensive! And Teresa looks FABULOUS! It’s an 18 minute video, and I personally will be doing this sequence once a week for a more thorough skin brushing. I incorporate some elements of it even in my daily brushing now.
The Moisturizing and Skin Tightening Tips video gives a lot of information about the different Skin Saver Products Teresa uses as well as tips for applying for luxurious skin care.
Regular prices are $19.95 for the CRT Brushing Supreme and $12.50 for the Moisturizing and Skin Tightening Tips. Both have access for 9 months–plenty of time to learn and memorize the sequences and tips! For Deep Discount Tuesday, CRT Brushing Supreme is $15 and Moisturizing and Skin Tightening Tips is $10! GREAT deals!
You can check them out at the Digital Store. Please note that you may need to click “show more” to see all of the digital options.
I’m excited for these new tips–I hope you take advantage of one or both of these videos so you can pamper your skin and turn back time, too!
Did you take advantage of the Deep Discount Tuesday special this month? Or do you already have Healthy Hormones Menopause Management?
As I stated in my last blog post, HHMM as we call it is not just for menopausal women. Men can even benefit from it! It was developed specifically to help women struggling with the hormonal changes of menopause, especially thyroid and adrenal issues that can be “subclinical” and not diagnosed until the ovaries start shutting down, revealing imbalances. The female hormones, the thyroid, and the adrenals work together for hormonal balance. When one is out of whack, it affects the others. For example, if the thyroid is not working optimally, the adrenals and female hormones will try to take on the portion the thyroid can’t carry. That can work for awhile, but eventually the adrenals wear down and/or the female hormones get more imbalanced (estrogen dominance, anyone?). This will really show up when we hit perimenopause, that period of 10 years or so before menopause when the ovaries start slowing down in preparation for menopause. That is why some women feel like they are “losing it” in their 40s and 50s! It’s not hysteria–it’s hormonal imbalances that were already there but masked that are showing up in full force! We can feel like we’ve lost our body, our mind and sanity!
Thankfully, there is help! As I stated earlier this week, I feel AMAZING when I do about half of HHMM at a time. Any more than that and I will usually need a nap (or two!) the next day–a very clear sign that I have pushed too far. Each of us needs to listen to her body’s cues and learn to stop before pushing too far. Sometimes that is a rear-view mirror look after the fact!
As promised, I’m going to share some ideas for splitting the Healthy Hormones workout to suit your schedule and your stamina level!
How Do I Know Where to Start?
If you have any–and I mean ANY–hormonal issues, including estrogen dominance, thyroid issues or adrenal fatigue, start small. You can always add to what you’re doing, and hopefully find your “sweet spot” before crashing. But if you go all out and crash and burn, it will take longer to crawl out of that hole. NO one wants to do that!
So let’s start “small”.
HHMM has 9 moves, and the Instructional has 10, including the stance. Start with the Instructional and go through it at least 4 times total. There’s no rush!
We’ll take it in a 3 moves per day schedule (this is the regular workout, but it’s close to the same for Instructional):
M-Spinal Curl through Plies Sequence (this includes using a towel for part of the Spinal Curl)
T- Spinal Curl, then Plie Pulls & Combo, finish with the Spinal Curl after Combo
W- Spinal Curl, T-Tapp Twist with a towel (light day)
Th- Spinal Curl, T-Tapp Twist, Hoedowns
F- Spinal Curl, Oil Wells with a towel, Oil Wells
S- Spinal Curl, Hoedowns
Sun- Off or Spinal Curl
I’ve used a Monday through Sunday “week”, with Sunday off, but if your day off is Tuesday, just put Monday’s moves on Wednesday.
You can rotate through the moves in various ways–just be sure to do them in the same sequence. In other words, you can skip moves, but don’t go back and do moves you skipped. On Thursday’s example above, you wouldn’t do Spinal Curl, T-Tapp Twist and then go back and do Plies Sequence. Also, be sure to do Spinal Stretch before you do other moves, especially twisting moves. You can skip some of the towel work of Spinal Stretch from time to time for time’s sake, but don’t omit it all the time!
If you find this routine is still too much, cut back to every other day. On the off days you could do just Spinal Stretch. You can use this same idea with the Instructional–you may even want to do just 2 moves per day on some of the moves that take longer. Listen to your body and let your stamina be your guide! I would suggest splitting the form tips up over 2 days and go through them at least once.
Feeling Really Tanked? How About in a Chair?!
If you can’t stand for even 3 moves, whether it’s adrenal/thyroid issues or joint issues, did you know you can do many of these moves in a chair? Oh yes you can!
Stand to do the Spinal Stretch, then sit down to do the towel portions. You can go down the legs as you sit in a chair–just don’t go too low if you start getting dizzy. Plies, Plies Pulls and Combo, the standing portion of Oil Wells, T-Tapp Twist and T-Tapp Twist with a towel can all be done in a chair! If you have MORE or TappCore 2, you know how to do Hoedowns in a chair–and yes–that counts!
The other standing move you might want to do is the “Mitten Chop Organs in Place” which is sprinkled throughout the workout. Healthy Hormones–even in a chair!
When Can I Do More?
Once you tolerate 3 moves daily with no worsening of symptoms and actually feeling better, you can start adding a bit more. I call this “short workout every other day”. It’s doing about half of HHMM every other day. This is approximately 4-5 moves, with off days having 2 moves. You can do just Spinal Curl or take off days completely off.
Let’s take the Instructional first:
M- Beginning through Organs in Place (this includes the Intro through curling the spine, Plies and then OIP)
T- Form Tips
W-The Stance, Curl/Scoop Spine; Lat Pulls through Oil Wells
Th- Form Tips
F- The Stance, Curl/Scoop Spine, Using a Towel; T-Tapp Twist and Oil Wells
Sun- The Stance through Using a Towel, Hoedowns
And now the regular workout:
M-Beginning through Oil Wells
T- Spinal Curl, T-Tapp Twist with a towel (or off)
W- Spinal Curl, then T-Tapp Twist through Hoedowns
Th- Spinal Curl, Oil Wells with a towel (or off)
F- Beginning through Oil Wells
S- Spinal Curl, T-Tapp Twist with a towel (or off)
Sun- Completely off or continue alternating half at a time
Graduating to Daily Workouts
Using the halfway split in the last sequence, you can start doing workouts daily. Now, don’t just jump right in to a workout every day! Work out Monday and Tuesday, make Wednesday a light day (2 moves), then do half the workout again Thursday and Friday, make Saturday another light day, take Sunday off, and see how well you tolerate that. Eventually you can ease into doing workouts Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday is a light day, do workouts Thursday through Saturday and Sunday is an off day. Or shift the light and off days around to suit your schedule! Having a light day in the middle of your workout “week” will help guard against overtraining. Taking a day off helps as well!
Listen to What Your Body Says!
It’s important to listen to your body’s cues as you work through this process. Really, there’s nothing wrong at all with sticking with 3 moves daily or doing half of HHMM every other day. Finding your sweet spot is easier when you slowly add vs jumping in with doing all of the workout every single day. Watch for feeling less energetic or needing naps later in the day (or the next day), brain fog getting worse, muscles or joints aching more than usual post-workout aches. If you notice any of those, back off. Finding your sweet spot is crucial–that place where you feel good, even better than before and possibly are seeing some improvement in inch loss. But you’re not doing too much to where you crash and burn. Results at the expense of your health are not true results!
I hope you enjoy these tips and find your “sweet spot” for HHMM–and I’d love to hear how it’s going for you! Please comment or contact me to let me know how you like it and if you find one of these schedule ideas helpful!
