here’s the deal…

so, here’s the deal.  i’m sure it looks like i’d given up on my power 90 quest, but in reality i think it got the better of me.  i truly hurt my knee and ankle and simply couldn’t do much of anything.  this is an existing injury, but i sure did a number to make it ache more than ever.  this program is great for a lot of things, but it’s really not good for bad knees.  i mean, the cardio portion has a third of it doing knee-ups.  and squats are a major portion of the sculpt section.  so, i guess i was a little overzealous with what i could do.

basically, i took a break.  and well, the break lasted probably a week more than it needed to.  it’s so easy to slide back into doing nothing.  and, its sooo hard to get back up to doing something.  i did the sculpt on monday (day 50) and i did it again today (day 52).  i basically skipped all the lunges and squats during both days.  i also didn’t wear the HRM, but i think i’ll start keeping track of that tomorrow.  i tried on monday, but heard a weird sound coming from the knee, so that’s the end of squats.  i’ll just have to find another way to work the buns and legs.  i didn’t do the sweat yesterday, but i’m think i’m going to try it tomorrow and see how it goes.
so, that’s the scoop.  i had a major deviation in my plan.  and maybe a couple of weeks ago i would have been really upset and mad at myself.  but, that’s life…
