I’m calling this my first proper day of the 30ds level 3 because yesterday I was just getting the feel of it and consequently didn’t push myself as hard as I perhaps should have. Today though, I used heavier weights and where possible performed some un-modified moves. However I had to follow Anita for most exercises, especially those which involved holding a plank position. The first stregnth circuit was a killer but it was the minute of sit ups which really got me. Even performing the modified version was a struggle but I’m proud that I managed it as I’ve never even come close to being able to do a situp before in my life! Again, I’m not sure I worked as hard as I did during level 2 however I know that as I become more accustomed to these new moves I will become capable of pushing myself harder. The nice thing about level 3 is that since this is the final workout, I have all the time in the world to master it and believe me I intend to, whether it takes me ten days or another twenty!

I again succeeded in breaking my mum’s 800-calories-a-day-rule by rinsing a banana and yoghurt down the sink today. I only hope I can keep this up but I forsee a problem when the plumbing becomes blocked as a result…
