Rest day but all goals where met!!

No ST today, just stretching and part of P90X Yoga X DVD. I did not burn hardly anything but at least I reached my goals for the day! My knee is doing better, the swelling has gone down some and I am in less pain. Tomorrow it is back to ST with P90X - Chest and Back followed by ABX. I am going to use my new heavier weights so I am excited to see how I lift with them. It is always hard when you step out of your comfort zone, but I will never advance if I keep lifting the same weights over and over. It will be so much fun when I am back in the US and can go to a gym. I just keep thinking about all of the variety that awaits me!

As far as my plan for my cardio, I am hoping that maybe by the end of this week I can start up again. I will have to start by walking and will stay clear of all high impact stuff...no plyo....but I have a good feeling that I am on the road to recovery and I will be back running in no time! I wanted to say a BIG thank you to everyone for your emails, comments and support for me during this time. Your encouragment as definately lifted my spirits and it keeps me focused, thanks so much!

Whoo-hoo!! Another great day! So happy that things are working out. I loved working out at home, I had a great set up. Then I joined a gym and I loved it even more. But, sometimes I really miss the privacy of my basement.

Hi Jen,

What program really got you started? I see you're a fan of making the cut, is that a good one to begin with if you have a substantial amount of fat to lose?
