Maybe just start over with PUSH, and if it's too much, then move back to BURN for another week. And don't feel bad about stopping and starting. This is my FOURTH time of starting/stopping, but I'm determined to finish it this time.
If starting twice and stopping half way is a bummer, I'd start with the second half and go forward. If you think you should still be in Push after that (before Lean), then do either the first two weeks of Push or the second two again...whichever you can handle. In other words, I'd go for keeping motivated. :)
How much time have you missed recently since doing the Push Phase? I would say if you haven't missed more than a couple of weeks, to continue where you are in the program.
I'll tell you how I handled a hiatus: I was just starting Push (second round through the program) at the end of the summer when I had to stop due to annoying back pain. I missed at least 4 weeks so I just restarted the program with Burn. I'm now 4 workouts away from finishing up Lean!
I started Chalean Extreme this past summer. I tore up my knee playing soccer, had surgery. I was in the middle of Push phase.
I started up again with Burn phase about 6 weeks ago. My knee was so-so and the plyo exercises were tough. I can do almost everything now. Again, I am in middle of Push phase, but haven't really monitored my eating.
I have come back to Spark People and am now paying attention to what I eat. My question is, should I continue with Push and move into Lean in a couple of weeks, or start over with Push? My guess is go back to Push :-9 but only getting half way thru the program, twice, is not much of a motivator.
