I wouldn't worry about back stepping if you're following the diet and fitting in all the workouts!
Sorry you're feeling bloated and icky

LFF, My normal rest day is Sunday. But since I knew I was going to be traveling I took Monday and Tuesday. Im not sure whats going on with my body right now. I am having my first cycle since giving birth in Oct....I am super bloated (I mean looking in the mirror and dont recognize my self bloated!!) Belly bulging so much I feel pretty disgusting....i might just take Tuesday to rest. Just dont want to back step my progress.

I forgot how much this part of being a girl sucks.

Just for today

I'm confused- did you rest this past Tuesday? And which day is your 'normal' rest day?
Its not a big deal to shift your weeks or your rest day unless you have a particular schedule to stick to for other reasons. So I say take your rest day after your 6 ST days, whenever that is. I wouldnt skip the rest day altogether. I would occasionally shift it if I knew something was going on a couple days later.
I.e. my rest days were Thursday. If I had plans on Saturday where I knew I wouldnt get my workout in, I might power through Thursday and Friday and then rest on Saturday.
I would avoid skipping rest for as long as 13 days...

Hi Tracie:)
I say listen to your body. Do you feel like you need a rest day? Are you fatigued? Rest is important. Also, may be a opportunity to regroup. One day off is not going to throw everything off. I did some doubling up occasionally and sometimes I think the workouts suffered a bit when I was tired. It is just one day:)

So my brief trip to NY has thrown off my LiveFit schedule a bit and Im trying to figure out how best to stay on track. I know rest is important for recovery and growth so here is my dilema.
I got back from NY Monday night and had tuesday as a rest day, but I only managed to get cardio in on Monday along with a 10 hour drive....so basically 2 rest days in a row (Im in Phase 2, meaning 1 rest day a week).

I have been on track the past 5 days strength and cardio all days, tomorrow I have legs scheduled, no cardio. Should I take a rest day Tuesday or just power through and begin week 8, or take my rest day and begin week 8 on Wednesday?

Any advice is appreciated :)

Just for today
