Retreat Recap: Day 3 & 4

Recap, October 3rd: Day 3

Sunrise view from my hotel room. Beautiful!

It's Saturday, October 3rd. Bright and early we're picking up the massive amount of brooms, yes brooms, from the T-Tapp office for the 8am Basic Plus and T-Tapp Broom workout.

7:40am: organic gala apple, cranberry orange nut muffin, Starbucks iced grande nonfat vanilla latte (not pictured)

I did the whole Basic Plus and T-Tapp Broom workout and it was amazing.

11:20am: steak wrap with sweet potato fries

Shannon & Ava

We had a buffet dinner with so many delicious options that I forgot to take a photo.

7:00pm: steak, grouper, veggies, etc

Gemma played us a few of her songs at the end of dinner. Her voice, sound and lyrics are so beautiful that they bring tears to your eyes. It was such a treat having her perform this year.

7:40pm: 1/2 slice pecan pie with fresh berries and coffee with cream/sugar

Mary Shomon, a thyroid expert from and NY Times bestselling author, did a presentation for us about the thyroid.

I learned some new things from her as well...
  • The thyroid manages cellular energy at a functional level.
  • Hypothyroidism is what the majority of people have, which means that the thyroid is under active.
  • Hyperthyroidism means that the thyroid is overactive.
  • Melatonin helps with anti-aging, gets rid of morning fatigue and depression.
  • Everyone should drink 1 ounce of water for 1 pound of body weight.

What a great end to a lovely day at the T-Tapp Retreat.

Recap, October 4th: Day 4

This was the last day of the T-Tapp Retreat. Seems like I have been waiting so long for the Retreat to come and now it's already over!

Another beautiful sunrise!!!

This morning I did my final measurements on my T-Tappers. They all did fantastic!

I skipped the morning stretch and final workout to get some work done and last minute things completed.

10:00am: breakfast buffet at the spa, Starbucks grande nonfat pumpkin spice latte

I headed home at 2pm to get some rest before court in the morning. It was nice to be home. I was so exhausted that I basically napped away the rest of the day.

4:30pm: 2 turkey tacos and salad

2 slices of California pizza kitchen garlic chicken pizza with fresh spinach

Trainer Certifications start on Monday, October 5th. I'll be heading back to the spa after court to do some workouts with the trainers.
