Hi ladies. I kind of disappeared for a bit. I did level 1 for 4 days, and had a bit of off days for the other 4. I did parts of the routine late at night [I can't do much, since I live in an apartment]. I work mainly night shift, with a few day shifts. So I am "re-starting" my shred and will do it every day for the 30 days. I am also measuring myself, so I can see the inches lost. I may not make goal by Halloween, but I will do this.Though, some altercations may need to be made, especially during the night hours, but it won't excuse me from not doing 30 minutes.

I really like some of the sets, so I will throw together my own mini work-out just to do as extra exercise.

Finished Level 1, Day 5.

This was the easiest it's felt yet. And yet, it was still challenging and I was still sweating.

I am dreading Level 2. I abhor plank, particularly moving whilst in them. I do think though if it ever gets easier, my body will probably be looking pretty good.

No more weight lost since Day 2... while my exercising is my good, my eating... not so much.

@gonnabe165:
the video is ~1.35 hour with 3 level, each level is roughly 25 minutes.
The idea is you'll stick to each level for 10 days and then move on to next level.

But well, you can stick to 1 level for as many days until you're ready for the next level. (i think)... But you have to push yourself to do it. And i think you won't need more than 30 days for 1 level

mjluva829 ~ Congrats. This can be a hard video, and I took tons of breaks when I started.

girl anachronism ~ Wow, you're almost half way through! Can't wait to see your results.

I did level 2 day 2 today! I was still really sore from yesterday, and today? It hurts to type right now! Those plank workouts huuuurt me! OMG. I cannot believe how badly level 2 is kicking my butt! I actually look forward to jumping jacks because they are easier that some of the other cardio things!

Swim- They get so much easier! I promise. Did you do all 10 days on level 1? I can't stress that enough. I know each level gets easy after you've done it, but I'm so glad that I did 10 days on level 1 b/c it built up strength. I would have never be ready. Today will be Level 2 day 9 and it's getting a lot easier, but I keep doing it b/c level 3 scares me. I am excited about doing level 3 on Sunday. I haven't lost any weight, and not checking my inches yet. I went to church last night and saw a lot of people and everybody told me how good I look so I guess this is all working.

I wore a pair of shorts last night to bed and I happen to go by a mirror and was like dang, my legs look good! lol I had a vain moment but I can tell it's working.

Has anyone thought about what they are going to do after the 30 day is done? I really like doing something together like this. It keeps me doing it and accountable..... I thought maybe I would keep doing it but do level 1 one day, the next level 2, the next level 3 and go back to one. It would work different muscles everyday and body wouldn't get used to it. Any thoughts?

Here We Go Again: I was actually thinking of doing the same thing. I definitely don't want to be done with the DVD and just be... done. I'm incorporating it into my everyday fitness. After the 30 days, i'm going to take a 2 day recovery, then i'm just going to start it over from L1, but with heaver weights perhaps. As much as I hate Jillian, I think I would miss her.

Jillian and I have a love hate relationship. I would miss her, too. I might rest one day and then do the level 1, 2, 3 thing. I don't want to build up like I did this time, I want to do something different everyday. How heavy are your weights now? I'm doing 5 pound weights. I guess I could go up, but I don't know if I could do it.

I'm using 5lb weights too, but for level 1 I feel like I could probably bump it up to 5.5 or 6 and be okay.

I thought I would build up a lot during this workout too being that i'm the queen of unintentional bodybuilding, but instead i've slimmed out quite a bit and i'm getting very cut which is something new. The way she executes traditional strength exercises is a lot different too. It makes the muscles long as opposed to short and big. You could also do it in conjunction with pilates or ballet if you wanted to be more lean.

Level 2, **** no on the weight increase, but I will probably find this level challenging for awhile so i'm not worried about it.

I'm antsy about level 3. I watched it and the new twist she put on push ups is no joke. Yikes!
