    i am here. 1st day of level 2 last week... so i guess that means i am in week 4. i didn't get the choreography of some of the more complicated moves and i feel like she moves almost too quickly through them. like the one where the weight goes through the bend in the leg. took me a while to get. i'm sure i will get it after a few times

    Yes the moves get easier with practice. I do get a better calorie burn on Level 2!

    the main problem i am having is balance. it is really hard for me to twist and keep my footing just like hers on some of the more complicated ones. like the side plank twist/kick things... i have almost fallen down a few times, especially when she starts doing them fast. but i can really tell a difference and i need to get just a bit more toned. would love to keep this momentum going through the holidays!

    Definitely, you're not alone :) I lose my balance frequently due to the pace she keeps you at. Plus, yes I get an amazing calorie burn as well. But practice makes us perfect. I will be doing this through Thanksgiving as well so hopefully I can keep my motivation, it will be so easy to falter and be lazy.

    I can't even do close to her pace on the "chops" where you are in the lunge and have to do the bend up and down... she goes way too fast! is anyone else with me? same thing with the side plank kick things. i feel like i am going to fall down. as well as the knee up and down crunch things = the ones she calls "old school"... i feel like i will never be at her pace on those three things. it is frustrating. maybe i just won't look at the girls when they do those so fast because it makes me more dizzy and almost losing my balance.

    I've finished the sucker and still can't do chops or the knee crunches at double speed. I just go as quickly as I can while maintaining balance. Came in here as I did this today for the first time in a week (since finishing) and this sucker is still hard!!

    Keep going those of you still going, very nearly there!!

    Week 6 Day 5 done!! I have completed this challenge! And I have lost 1.6 lbs and a total of 2.5 inches! :happy: I am so glad I actually made it through the whole six weeks of this workout. I have started the workout many times just never did six weeks straight. WIll be adding this workout into my rotation.

    I also still have some trouble with keeping balance on certain moves in Level 2. Just do it at your own pace. If you can't go as fast the second time around, don't. Good luck ladies. Finish strong ( as Jillian would say, LOL).

    I will be checking back to offer support and see everyones results! Have a great Thanksgiving!:smile:

    Yikes still so behind :( Oh well. Tues I was going to do 6w6p but bf decided we should go to Best Buy and pick up some things. So when we got back and played with the new gadgets it was too late for me to workout. Wednesday I did P90X yoga which is 1 hour and 30 minutes and then my bf came home early and decided we should do a run!! I never run Im so horrible, but really surprised myself and we were out there for 40 minutes and I ran most of it :D So felt no need to do a 3rd workout for the day. Thurs, well simply put got super lazy and was sore from the run. Plus my shoes suck so my ankles were hurting bad. (luckily though we went out and bought me a new pair of running shoes :D) Now Fri I have no excuse, we slept in and well I got lazy again. Sat my bf and I are planning a hike and then I need to get back and get back on track with P90x so not sure if I will do 6w6p. Again that would put me doing 3 workouts that day :( I may have to wait til Monday and get back on a schedule then.

    Not giving up, I will finish.
    Susan that's great results :)
