Depression & Anxiety–Can Movement Help? (part two)

{missed part one? click here to read it!}

I knew all the “right” things to do.  But in all honesty, I needed someone to bring me the glasses of water, fix healthy meals, help me not pig out on chocolate and other treats (remember, my youngest daughter is a self-taught pastry chef–and a good one, too!), get me moving. I needed a live-in helper!  But I didn’t even have enough umph to ask.

One thing I DID do well–I walked a LOT through the fall.  Mostly to process and pray, but it kept me moving, too! So did my regular webcam clients (THANK YOU!).  But once the weather got colder and harder to walk, I didn’t replace it with any extra movement.  By Christmas-time I lost my stamina. Going upstairs to tuck the boys in made me winded.  That plus my massage therapist encouraging me to take better care of myself (she could tell I had LOTS of inflammation going on) finally “woke me up”.  I had a spiritual breakthrough right before New Year’s, and then got a little more proactive to move more. Not workouts, but Holiday Hoedowns here, stretching moves there (from Teresa’s Favorite Fascia Stretch Workout on the Floor), and a Holiday Workout here and there.  Not much, but enough to help me regain some stamina (quickly, I might add!) AND to help my mental ability.  When I finished the Holiday Hoedowns the first time, I was breathing hard and heart was pounding–but I felt a HUGE black cloud lift! YAY!!!!!

I know the power of T-Tapp–January was my 12 year anniversary of starting this amazing workout!  Seven years ago on January 16 I certified for Total (and for MORE on the 17th).  I became a Master Trainer the fall of 2013.  So I know.

But now I really know.  What I experienced that day took my knowledge to a new level because I felt the shift in a way I never had before. I could literally feel my brain fog lift and could think more clearly.  And in that moment I realized what a beautiful gift Teresa has given us in her method of movement.  Not only is it great for shaving off inches and reshaping our bodies, but it is powerful to improve mood and help our bodies find balance–even in the hardest of situations.

This article by the Mayo Clinic talks of how Exercise Eases Symptoms of depression and anxiety.  And I love how it includes physical activity, not just planned exercise sessions.

There are also many articles and testimonials on the effects of walking on depression and anxiety symptoms:

“They say when you’re moving, you go into full-brain thinking, which engages both sides of your brain. I often think of solutions to problems I’ve been grappling with when I’m out walking. I notice my brain seems to work differently and the ideas flow much better.

“Another aspect of walking is it connects me to nature. I find it incredibly calming. When I’m out walking, I’m less stressed and take more notice of what’s around me.

~I Walked My Way Out of Depression, Brian Johnston

Walking may also promote feelings of pleasure, tranquility, and well-being and help relieve the pain of depression by encouraging the production of the body’s natural opiates, called endorphins. These chemical cousins of morphine are responsible for the feeling of euphoria called “runner’s high.”

~Benefits of Walking–Walking and Depression

This article, Exercise for Stress and Anxiety, shares fitness tips, even cold weather exercise tips!

You can add just two T-Tapp techniques, to keep it simple, and get even more balancing effect from walking!  Shift weight into heels more (vs shifting forward with weight more on the ball joints/toes) and ribs up. Often when we are struggling, we pull in and the shoulders slump forward. It’s a protective posture, but not truly helpful.  Think of a string pulling your head nice and tall to the sky.

Just those two tips while you walk can help you feel better!  As I walked last fall and processed grief and transitions in my life, those were the only two techniques I focused on.  I’m grateful to have been walking–if I hadn’t been moving at all, I can only imagine how much worse my depression might have been!

One thing that became clear after that season, was that I was still who I always was, that all these things seeming to be holding me down didn’t change my reality.  It’s only our perception during a tough time that seems to make reality unreal and the dark thoughts real.  Of course that’s easy after the fact!

Because of going through that time and realizing once I got moving again what truth in the tough situation was, I knew I needed to keep moving. I decided to at least do a series of stretches from Teresa’s Favorite Fascia Stretch on the Floor, even if I got nothing else in.  I also decided to write truths about who I am on a post-it note and put it on my mirror.  Of course I still have to believe it–but at least it’s now in front of my eyes, to remind me daily of who I truly am.  And I read it out loud because that helps it get more deeply into my mind and soul to read it, speak it and hear it.

Movement and Truth–two powerful weapons in our battle with anxiety and depression!

I still have days where my heart hurts when it hits again that I will not see Teresa again in this life.  But I also have excitement and motivation to step into the “new normal” to carry  her legacy forward and continue to help others find the power–and the beauty–of the method of movement she was passionate to share with the world to help everyone feel and look their best.

I am a T-Tapper for life and I’m privileged to carry my part of her torch forward as a Master Trainer.

And part of that is being raw and real. I’m in the trenches with you, and I’m offering you a hand-up where I’ve found a spot, so together we can become stronger and be all that we were created to be!

Depression & Anxiety–Can Movement Help? (part one)

 

 

Nearly everyone deals with anxiety and down times at some point in their lives.  Or many times!   And depression shows up in a variety of ways–sometimes so subtly that you don’t even realize you’re depressed until you’re coming out of it. How do you begin to ask for help when you don’t realize you need it?

Before I continue, I want to give a disclaimer–I am NOT licensed to diagnose depression nor treat it.  But I can share from my experience.  What you’re about to read is real and raw, from my heart.

The last half of 2018 had several events that threw me off my “groove”.  In late May/early June I had a shift in my hormones that affected me differently over a short period of time:

  • Week 1–I was mad at EVERYONE and EVERYTHING!  I mean like, “get-out-of my-way-or-I-WILL-bite-your-head-off” mad!
  • Week 2– “I could care less” about EVERYONE and EVERYTHING. Just existing.
  • Week 3–“I think I need to get my hormones tested…”
  • Week 4– Progesterone dosage reduced by half.  Cried at least twice daily and 5 times one day. Called pharmacist and together we agreed to put me back on my regular dosage!

That was NOT a fun time!  In addition to all the emotional upheaval, brain fog set in thick and heavy. And it HAD been lifted.  GAH!  Menopause! :p  It was sooo frustrating because I was feeling better, inches were finally coming off, I felt like doing more than the bare minimum in life.  Then I felt like I was set back.  REALLY set back.

My adrenals were “stealing” the progesterone because they are so tanked.  2016 marked the beginning of an incredibly stressful time with my husband’s unplanned open heart surgery and recovery, the financial ramifications from that, changes in household responsibilities with older children getting jobs and going to school, etc.  My goal was to wait until we got past the busy time of 4-H and fair season and then really work on my adrenals.  Then a daughter who usually helps me get everyone where they need to be couldn’t help during the busiest of the 4-H season!  Another daughter couldn’t help with a family reunion that we are responsible for.  Then my youngest daughter won in her category for Fashion Revue and we went to the State Fair. Which was FUN!  And I did love spending more time with my youngest 4 children (since I was the only driver!).  But these things together made for a busy whirlwind summer.  And there were more family transitions.

I finally started getting into the more normal routine at the beginning of September, preparing for a weekend retreat at the end of the month.

Then came September 20.

Can I be honest?  Teresa’s passing hit me as hard–if not harder–than my mom’s sudden death.

I was grateful to have that retreat–it kept me from just crawling under the covers and giving up.  The best thing I could have done was to teach the method of movement I believe in so much in honor of the woman who inspired me and believed in me.  I loved her like a sister.  She had such a way to make each and every one of us feel special, didn’t she?  Whether in person, through an e-mail, Facebook comment or through the dvd/digital workout–you felt like you knew her and that you were special to her. Because you ARE!

I was able to attend both celebrations of life in honor of Teresa, and that really helped.  But it was harder and harder to get back to my work. Hard to “promote” programs and classes…I needed time, and yet I needed to show up for the beautiful women whom I serve.

More family transitions, hormones still not balanced and add stress eating to grief and lack of motivation–it was the perfect storm about to happen.  I was never suicidal (thank the Lord!) and my faith did help, but there were some dark moments when I was really at rock bottom.

But it was hard to say something.  Why? I don’t know.  Who does know when you’re in the pit? What makes sense outside of it doesn’t compute when we’re in it.

I was able to share with a few people a little more honestly, but I really didn’t tell anyone how bad it got.  That’s scary!  I have a good husband and family, friends–any one of them would have said in an instant that they were there for me.  But I still felt so alone.

I had to come to grips with a lot of things during this time.  My faith has been a HUGE part of what pulled me through, but there were even times there I felt God was so far away.  Of course He never is, He’s right here with me all the time.  But when you’re in that pit, feelings trump truth, unfortunately.

I had a few breakthrough moments, where the sun would peek through, and was feeling a bit better during the holidays. Right before Christmas I received a few unexpected gifts and they made me SO happy and giggly (one had a “Do not open until December 25” sign on it, too!) like a little girl!

THAT’S when I realized just how depressed and bottomed out I had been.

I’m so thankful to those who took the time to get me a gift, wrap and package them to send to me. Others sent me cards and e-mail notes. T-Tappers are just the BESTEST! ♥

Starting April 18, I will be holding a FREE Defeating Diastasis 14 Day Challenge! Registration is already open for all 3 levels of Defeating Diastasis, but if you’re not sure or want to try a little before you jump in, this Challenge if for YOU!

You’ll need to be on my “interest list” to get the details and be able to sign up. You can get on that list by signing up for my free Sneak Peek of the first 3 lessons of Defeating Diastasis. I will be sending out more details over the next few days as we prepare to start. We’ll be focusing on one technique, and I have had ladies share that they noticed improvements with this one technique alone!

Are you in the Northwest US? I’ll be in Portland, Oregon on May 18–I’d LOVE to meet any Northwestern T-Tappers!

If you have any questions, please contact me and let me know!

Defeating Diastasis–Not Just for Tummy Gaps!

Strong core and pelvic floor muscles support each other for optimal function!

Do you struggle with diastasis recti, a weak core, pelvic floor issues–or all three?!

I created Defeating Diastasis to help women close the “tummy gap” of diastasis recti and improve core and pelvic floor strength and function.  Each time I run the course I get amazing testimonials of gaps closing, LARGE gaps starting to close, improved pelvic floor function and core strength and awareness.

 

Registration opens again on April 8, but with NEW options!

 

  • Level 1 is the foundational first part of the program
  • Level 2 is a quick review of key moves from Level 1 and then moves on through the rest of the program
  • Option 3 is the entire program as it is now

 

My goal is to help participants feel successful, but sometimes seeing we won’t get through the entire course is discouraging because we think we won’t get results. That’s a similar mindset to thinking if you don’t get an entire workout in, you can’t see results.  It also can be overwhelming if you find your core is really weak and you can’t progress through the lessons as quickly as you had planned.   After asking for feedback I decided to split the program into 2 levels to help you move through it feeling good about your progress!

 

  • Level 1 encompasses 14 lessons, scheduled to release over 6 weeks
  • Level 2 includes a quick review of some of Level 1, then continues lessons progressing to standing moves, then easing into floorwork. Total of 30 lessons
  • Option 3 is the entire program, first 14 lessons are scheduled, then the rest are unlocked at once so you can progress through the remaining 22 lessons at your pace, 13 weeks total

All three options include an additional 6 weeks video access at the end so you have plenty of time to go over the moves and techniques!

 

You can actually go through the first 3 lessons for FREE by signing up for Defeating Diastasis Sneak Peek!  These lessons are:

 

  1. How to tell if you have a diastasis recti
  2. What NOT to do (exercise moves and daily activities)
  3. Protect Progress (how to get up and down from the floor, a chair and a bed the right way)

 

Once you sign up for the Sneak Peek you’ll also be added to my “interest list” for the Defeating Diastasis program.  Even if you find you don’t have “the gap”, you’ll receive helpful information to strengthen the core and pelvic floor.  I’ll be sharing info with this list that I won’t share on the blog or on my regular newsletter list, including a FREE Challenge coming up April 16!

Defeating Diastasis is a streaming video course, and you can download the written lessons, schedules and checklists.  I’m excited to offer options to best suit everyone’s needs.  Together we can work towards a stronger core for better posture, better function and better results in our workouts!

Don’t forget–if you want to participate in the FREE challenge next month, you must be subscribed to the interest list either by going through the free Sneak Peek or signing up at my Defeating Diastasis website!  It will be EASY and FUN!  I hope you’ll join me!

 

 

The CORE of T-Tapp

Core is one of the popular buzzwords in fitness today.  T-Tapp has always been about the “core”.  In earlier videos Teresa cues to “tuck butt”, however it’s not about the gluteus maximus but about the synergistic activation of core and glutes together–along with a host of other muscles!

In more recent videos Teresa cues “tuck/curl” or “curl the core” to better describe the functional alignment of “tucking” or core activation. It seems like a simple nuance of terms, but why is it important? What makes the “core” the CORE of T-Tapp?

 

Spinal Alignment

Alignment is important for optimal flexibility and fluidity in movement–and in holding your body upright (i.e. “good posture”)!  Core muscles include muscles that run along your spine (and attach to it) that help you bend to one side or the other, twist your torso, even help you turn and tilt your head!  When these muscles are injured or weak, you’re going to have more pain and less flexibility and functionality.  A strong core distributes the “load” of standing or sitting upright as well as movement.  When you have weak core muscles–tummy or spine muscles or both–other muscles are overworked and don’t function as well.  Think of strong core muscles as everyone working together vs a few doing most of the work–and leading to “burn out”!  (Or, in this case, sore muscles, injury, pain, spasms…no fun, right?!)

 

Flexibility

As mentioned above, the core muscles help you twist and bend and turn.  Strong abdominal core muscles help you get up from the floor or a chair as well as prevent back strain and fatigue.  If the muscles are stiff or weak, you won’t be able to twist or bend as far or as well, and you will have more trouble getting up from the floor.  There are other issues that affect that as well, such as knee problems.  Believe it or not, a strong core can help prevent knee issues as well as help rehab some knee problems!

 

Breathing

Your diaphragm is a part of the core as well!  If you’re seated right now, slouch and let your ribcage sink into your tummy area. Slump those shoulders forward.  (Oh, you were already sitting like that?!)  Take a deep breath without changing your posture.

Now sit more upright. Pull the tummy in a bit and get the head aligned with ears over shoulders (no jutting your chin forward).  Again, take a deep breath. AAAHHHH! Feel the difference?

No one can work well when squished! That includes your diaphragm! (And your stomach, intestines, etc, but we’ll talk about that another day!)  Strong core muscles will help your alignment which in turn helps your breathing.

 

Pelvic Floor

A strong core helps pelvic floor function, too! In fact, when ladies first start Defeating Diastasis, my course to help close the diastasis recti “tummy gap” or to help strengthen their core, the first improvement many notice is less leaking and a stronger pelvic floor!  This deserves a post of its own, so I will dig into this more in a future post.  You can do kegels all day but if you don’t also strengthen your core muscles, any results will be short-lived.

And if you’re still not convinced….get back to that slouchy, shoulders forward, ribcage in your tummy position.  Focus on your pelvic floor and cough.  Now sit upright, head in alignment, ribs up….cough.  Feel the difference?  Slouchy/weak core means more bearing down on the pelvic floor. NOT what we want!

 

So Why Is the Core the CORE of T-Tapp?!

Curling the core and then tightening the gluteal muscles to “tuck” helps stabilize the lower body as you then perform the various movements in T-Tapp. Standing or on the floor it helps protect the back from injury by balancing the stabilization of core and glutes.  While there are some moves that are more “neutral spine” in some workouts/moves, you are still focusing on core strength, even if you’re not fully “tucked”.  I teach a more detailed breakdown of curling the core in my classes and client sessions, as well as in the Defeating Diastasis course.   The bottom line is a strong core means better results from your workouts, less pain, less strain on joints, more flexibility and optimal functioning on many levels.

 

I’ll be digging into this more in the next few blog posts, but I will be sharing even more details with my Defeating Diastasis interest list.  If you are interested in the next course of Defeating Diastasis (registration opening April 1), or if you want to learn even more about the core, you can check out the website and sign up for the list here —>  Defeating Diastasis

If you have any questions, comment below or contact me!  I’ll be sharing more details about the course itself with the interest list, too!

And BRAVO on improving your posture! You got a few inches taller just by reading this, didn’t you?! 🙂

Dashing into Holiday Fitness!

 

It’s that most wonderful time of the year–when preparations and celebrations wreak havoc on our well-ordered fitness routines!  If you’re having trouble fitting in fitness in the midst of a busy season, here are some ideas to help you ward off unwanted inches and pounds!

 

Sneaky Fit to the Rescue!

Sneaking in fitness where you can really does work!  Remember, alignment and muscle activation are the keys to success, so even if you can’t get a 15-20 minute workout in, you can still activate and maintain your size–and maybe even lose a few inches!

 

Sneaky Fit Ideas:

 

  • Dashing through a store?  Shift weight into heels and keep those ribs up for a little extra activation!
  • Grocery shopping for holiday feasts?  Either hang onto the cart with hands under the handle and thumbs away or make a loose fist, stretch those thumbs and press down on the cart handle for extra lat (and core) activation.   It takes the load off those tired feet, too!
  • Standing in line?  Softly bend your knees, pull belly button up and back (but not a full tuck–neutral spine) and think of a string pulling your head nice and tall to the ceiling. Now gently shift weight back a bit and think to turn out your whole leg from ankles to knees to hips.  HELLO muscle activation from head to toe!
  • Doing your shopping online?  Sit towards the edge of your chair, knees straight out from hips and ankles under knees with toes forward. Pull that belly button up and back to spine and lift ribs.  Press into the desk or your thigh with the non-mouse-clicking hand. Having your hand in mitten or bear claw position with a stretched thumb will use a bit more lats and balance the muscles in your back and shoulders.
  • Driving all over to find that perfect gift?  At stoplights, curl your core against the back of the seat, place hands on steering wheel at 8 and 4 o’clock positions, thumbs away and gently pull to help you get those ribs up using your lats–but don’t lose that core!  Inhale slowly for 4-5 counts and exhale bigger for 8-10!

 

Quick Fitness Breaks:

 

  • If you’ve been walking what seems like a marathon through stores (and between them in malls!), slip into a handicap stall of the restroom and do at least the arch and scoop portion of Primary Back Stretch or Scarecrow Ski
  • To relieve those tired feet, try these Foot Stretches!
  • Been sitting too long at the computer looking for that Star Wars Lego set? Try Seated Lawnmowers to stretch the back, relieve neck tension and trim the torso, too!
  • Fingers tired from typing or writing out Christmas cards? Finger Fitness to the rescue!
  • Tired back and neck from carrying all those packages? Butterflies are an easy move to memorize and effective for clearing the brain fog and relieving sore shoulder, arm, neck and upper back muscles!

 

 

Need a fun but easy “workout” idea to get a bit more cardio in through the holidays?  

 

Check Out Holiday Hoedowns!
There are 4 fun Holiday Hoedowns on YouTube–for FREE!   A variety of Hoedown styles and all are under 4 minutes!

 

These are a variety of regular and “tap-it” Hoedowns with different hand positions–if you’re not familiar with some of them, watch first, then do.  FUN way to fit in fitness, burn fat, calories, blood sugar– and ramp up the cardio, too!

 

Other Ways to Fit in Fitness

{Note:  The following paragraph contains affiliate links.  If you purchase through one of these links I will receive an affiliate commission, which helps me with business expenses and buying dark chocolate sea-salt caramels, both of which help keep this website running!}

  • Short workouts:  The MORE Workouts have 3 mini workouts that are under 10 minutes each–including a chair workout!
  • TappCore and TappCore 2:  TappCore has 8 moves on a menu you can choose from, plus a short 8 minute stepping workout.  TappCore 2 is 12 minutes of core cardio in a chair!
  • 3 Moves Per Day:  Primary Back Stretch plus 2 moves can keep that lymph pumping and muscles strong! Chaptered workouts such as Mindful Movement (Healthy Hormones) or Senior Fit can help you save time jumping through the workout!
  • Step Away the Stress and Inches!  Broom 2 is a short, 13 minute stepping workout.  As I mentioned, TappCore has a short 8 minute stepping workout on it, and all three MORE Workouts have short stepping workouts on them as well. (MORE 3 has TWO stepping workouts!)
  • T-Tapp Tuesday Videos:  Teresa shared a move nearly every week for 2 1/2 years on WTSP T-Tapp Tuesday!  Most are 3 1/2 to 4 minutes, even with the intro, and often Teresa is also explaining what the move targets or what health benefits you will get.  GREAT way to fit in fitness!  There is a list of all the moves by date and name in this post at the T-Tapp Forums.

 

Doesn’t it feel good to have options to keep moving and maintain your ground during this busy season?!

Amazing Activation Tips— Since I was born on the 17th, just $17! 😉 This is for TWO months access! Learn how to set up the T-Tapp stance with the newer tips, including ankle activate and activate hips! If you purchase this weekend (June 15-18), you get a special unadvertised bonus! Be sure to forward your e-mail confirmation to me!

Beautiful Basics Video Class Packages– EIGHT workouts to choose from! You’ll get 9 recorded videos from classes I taught in my Beautiful YOU online program. Once you purchase, please forward me your confirmation e-mail and let me know what workout(s) you want for your classes! SPECIAL pricing this weekend, including an AMAZING price if you purchase TWO video class packages!

My e-book, Fatigued to FABULOUS is $15–$12 off regular price and $4 off the normal sale price!

Prefer one-on-one sessions? Check out my Birthday Bash Webcam Session Sale! For this weekend ONLY (June 15 through June 18) it’s a BOGO sale! Buy one session (1 hour or 20 minute Mighty Mini) and get one FREE! After June 18 you still get a deal–buy TWO and get one FREE!

And while this isn’t a “birthday sale”, the early bird pricing is through June for the Fully Fit & Free Retreat on Lake Michigan. There is a 2-payment option, and choice of room is first-come, first-served! I’m really looking forward to pampering and encouraging everyone who comes! I want you to leave refreshed, refocused, and renewed!

Whether you are keeping momentum going or need to get motivated–live sessions, recorded classes and e-book (with TEN schedules included)–there’s something for EVERYONE!

Ready to party?! 🙂
