oh honey... i'm on my second try of doing 30DS now (i did it once fully last year... tried to "restart" it a bunch of times this year but failed after 2-3 workouts...) and when i first started again, i was so out of shape i could barely finish it! i kept thinking "i've done this before! why is this so hard?!" but like everybody said, it gets easier, just don't give up.
also, i f*cking hate level 1. i do all the "easy" moves, and during the last circut, the move where you kick your butt out and lift the weights up, well i just can't coordinate enough to do the leg move while lifting the weights so i just don't use weights for that part. just adapt things like you can do them, but it's like she says: don't stop, and don't quit!

no one says you have to do it in a month. i mean, it's the "optimal" way to do it, but the first time that i did it, i did it every other day (so it basically took me like 2 months to do it) and i still saw results and it was still hard! just go at your own pace.
