For training, I'm a propenent of staying heavy while you cut. It preserves muscle while you strip away fat. For your training schedule, I would completely reverse the order. I'll stick to the five day a week because that's what you want.

M-Chest
T-Back
W-Legs
TH-shoulders/traps
F-biceps/triceps
S-cardio/rest
Su- cardio/rest

Another plan to consider is circuit training. Upper body one day, lower the next, and so on. This should keep the intrest level up and motivation to stick with it. For cardio, refer to one of my previous threads about Max-OT Cardio. An intense 16 minutes is better and more effective for stripping fat than 45 minutes worth of cardio.
Which plan are you talking about? I'm assuming it's the 5 day program. Just keep it on the heavy side, reps between 6-8, 2-3 sets per exercise. Refer to the sticky I made up at the top of the page about targeting specific muscles. The first exercises listed are the most effective. Just getting back into lifting, start off with a medium volume. After you workout, you should feel a little sore but nothing extreme. Using chest as an example, try 3 sets of flat bench, 3 sets of inclines, and maybe a set or two of dips or cables. Gym time should run you about 35-45 minutes, but not exceeding a hour. Again, keep lifting heavy, set boundries in your diet, and hit some intense cardio 6-8 hours either before or after weight training. You will get results.

while your waiting for them to heal what i always like to do is look for weightlifters journals/stories/articles about them and how they started off and how hard they worked to get where they were it usually gets me pretty motivated to get in the gym and u learn things from them also

I still dont understand why people mess with those stuff. This kid at my gym, showed me a bottle of liquid creatine and told me taking two drops of it help him get bigger. Ya right, hell I am taking ten grams of creatine per day, and my weight only changes around 5 or 6 pounds if I ever run out of it.

I still see my supplement store selling it. I think it's just really old and they are trying to just cut their losses and sell the remainder.

Depends. My supp store has the same prices on everything. So in case of an emergency I go there because I can't wait for the mail. I'll get things in bulk from BN, but everything else comes from Laguna Beach.
