First, congratulations – you go girl!
I’m glad you now see the value in doing classic. At this point, I’d be careful about doing too much extra exercise. You still want to put on lean muscle (while burning fat off at an even faster rate) and if you do a bunch of cardo like jogging before the resistance training, you will interfere with that process. I like to see most people wait until the last month before doing doubles, but if you are really itching to do more, then on your plyo, yoga and kenpo days, add a run. But please do not do a run before a resistance workout.
Also, realize that your diet is very vital for how your transformation will ultimately look. As you lose weight, you will actually need to cut a few calories. So if you are eating more than 1,500 – 1,600 calories a day, bring it down. And be sure you are eating your calories in a 40/40/20 ratio of carb/protein/fat. This is a very low fat, high protein diet. I find a good protein powder will really help build lean mass and burn more belly fat off. I keep a list of my favorite protein powders at http://www.pressplayfitness.com/members/forum/#topic/Protein-Powders.htm. I have 2 or 3 protein drinks a day to get to my protein levels.
