    Day 2 Completed.....wasnt in the mood to exercise today so I was planning to exercise in the evening but ended up taking my sis somewhere. Therefore I didnt exercise until 11:30 pm. BUT I did do the 30 Day Shred and 35 mins on my elliptical.

    I also plan on doing each level for 10 Days. So I will weigh in after each level is complete. (My 30 Day Shred Weigh-In Dates: Nov 11th, Nov 21st & Dec 1st). As far as my measurements, I'll just wait until Dec 1st.

    Day 3 complete. Monday, Wednesday and Friday are my 100 pushup challenge days so my arms feel like jelly after all the pushups and the pushups in level 1. Altogether I did 35 regular pushups and 30 "girlie" pushups.

    Day 2 completed (just posting today). I have started and restarted this 30DS soooooo many times and quit around day 6. I have to keep going this time. Anyways, since I've done level 1 so many dang times from starting over so much, I was so excited that I did 10 regular push ups last night! :) I couldn't believe it. Then I had to break down to modified. Oh well.

    Will do Day 3 tonight. :)

    Awesome job on the pushups!!! When I started back in May I couldn't do 1 regular pushup. They are really a great all over workout too.

    Don't discount those modified push-ups. As long as you start out with doing a few regular ones it is ok to drop down to modified. Soon, the modified will be a thing of the past.

    Thanks! I know, it's amazing, I think I could do 2 just a few months ago.

    Thanks, I can't wait for that day! I refuse to do pushups at the gym b/c I'm so embarrassed, lol. I'd love to be able to do them in good form (8 of the 10 were in very good form last night - YAY!) so that I won't be so ashamed of my lack of muscles. :)

    i completed day 2 last night around 11pm. it was late, but i did it immediately following my hot yoga class, which was an extreme workout in itself. i really didnt think i would make it through the 20 minute video but i did! so i was pretty proud of myself. im also using the treadmill during the day to add to the cardio, already i can see my figure changing which is AWESOME, since i had a baby 2.5 months ago. i just cant wait to get rid of the belly and i can see it going. yay!

    i have the 3 pack of dvds from jillian: the yoga, metabolism boost, and 30 day shred. i hope to get to a point where I can do at least 2 of them back to back.

    keep up the good work ladies!

    Day 3 complete. I was fairly sore today so I thought it would be really hard to push myself through today's session, but surprisingly, it wasn't bad at all. I've also decided to kick it up a notch and do 100 jumping jacks at the end of my Shred workouts.

    Day 3 not as sore today so I was back to giving it 100%, now I'm shaky but its a good shaky...I even made it through the jumping jacks in the warm up and the first set of them...so trust me for me that is something...Hopefully I won't feel as bad tomo as I did yesterday.

    Great idea. Before the chatter starts in your head that says you can't do something just put on you shoes and start to do it.

    Finished Day 3 this morning, managed all the Jumping Jacks, some of the butt kicks and jump ropes and increased my intensity in the strength and abs.
    For a laugh, I decided (after I'd showered and made my brekkie) to have a nosy at Level 2... Urgh! I will so be following Anita.

    BTW: Anyone else notice that Natalie does a lot of slacking, when she doesn't think she's being filmed????

    Wouldn't you like to see how one of these is filmed and how many times they stop and start or don't give it a 100%. That's why I don't feel too bad when I have to take a few seconds break.

    I HAVE to take a break, mainly for a drink and a rub down (sweaty Betty, that I am), but also I can't get up and down as quickly as they do!!!!!!!
    Day 4 on Saturday!!!!
