Rabbit,
I love the new routine. All the exercises are new and I can tell a difference in my muscles Also, I feel really re-energized. Having a definate plan that I write down and track every single thing I do -- how many sets at what weights and all my cardio -- and then my PT is checking on me every once in awhile is really helping me. I think having someone "professional" tell me exactly what I should do is reassuring to me. Since I really just started doing the full plan this week I haven't seen any results yet but I can tell I'm working out a lot harder than I was before -- much more sweating going on. :D

Liz :D
Glad you are so happy with it! I'm sure it is reassuring to have someone tell you what to do & check on you. To feel like you're doing the right thing would be great. I need to do that sometime.

Welcome LA!! Rabbit, I went grocery shopping last night and stood for several minutes drooling at the double fudge brownie mixes. :devil: But I decided to be good and I didn't get anything.
