Doing better!

I took yesterday off, which was smart because this morning my leg is feeling better than ever!! I think the change in my workouts are paying off and i am starting to heal! 

I first want to thank each of you. I was so surprised by the amount of comments and support that you all gave me! It really shows me how much you all are supporting me on this journey. It touched my heart. It is hard to explain how it feels to be miles away from home and my family, yet feel so connected to people I have never met. You - each of you - have blessed me in a way I will never forget. 

I did well yesterday despite my day off. We went out to dinner last night, and I did well and managed to still have a 400 deficit for the day! 

Today I am going out for a walk and hopefully I will be able to go faster, maybe a light jog, but we will see. I do not want to ruin a good thing. Now that I am doing better I want to continue to move forward not go back and hurt myself again! I am also doing my P90X weights tonight which have been a great way to keep on my program despite the fact that I have not been able to run. 

Thanks again for everyones support. I am constantly in awe of the support that Spark gives! It has changed my life!

I really commend you for resting your sore leg. It does need the time to heal. Hang in there as it will get better.
You are so inspiring with your words of wisdom and your weekly and daily plans.
thank you.

I don't know how you have continued this pace. You do so much! Now just slow it down so your body can heal. You will still accomplish your goals because you are so motivated. I like all the photos and quotes you list on your blog. Hang in there!
