    I did day 8 of level 1 today. Just to let you all know, the soreness goes away after about the 3rd or 4th workout. I could barely sit myself down on the potty without whimpering after day 2!

    L1 D6 completed.

    I did my shred this morning before work. I felt something give in my left shin and I thought I tore the tendon/ligament completely away from the bone. Darn shin splints!!!! Once I got to work this afternoon I stopped into to see a doctor friend and ask his opinion. He thinks there may be some micro tear and told me to stop jumping! LoL!!! So I guess I will be punching from now on and modifying my jacks, jump ropes and butt kicks. Off to google some alternative methods for those!

    Your neck is not invited to this party. Try focusing on looking straight up at the ceiling. That helped me, I had a sore neck after the first few days of L1. Oh, and take drugs - ibuprofen helps a lot for me with my 30 DS aches and pains, think I'll go get some now.

    Is anyone else really tired of "Don't phone it in!" That's the only thing that really irritated me in level 1. I'M NOT PHONING IT IN!!! Stop telling me that!!! Gah!

    Today I'm on Day 3/30 however this morning I felt like a change up so did P90x Cardio, will be doing the shred tonight!! I plan on doing the Shred everyday no days off since its more relaxed for me, but 3x week weights and 2xweek an extra workout (boxing/p90x/walking etc) no exact mostly playing how I feel each day..:) Goodluck everyone!

    Do you have the whole P90x package? How's the Cardio bit? Would you say 30DS is a bit of a walk in the park in comparison?

    I mix mine up with adding a Cardio X and yes 30DS is a walk in the park after than (for me anyways) I do 30DS and alternate days with adding a P90x Vid or Strength Training.. :) I just completed 4/30 :)
  • Day 2 Level 1. Thought I was dying but as someone else already wrote I felt better after the warm up.

    Completed day 7 of level one yesterday and I'm feeling good. Have already lost some inches in my hips, but can't wait to see this belly fat go down :). My 18yr old daughter, who may have 5-10lbs to lose at most, attempted to do it with me last nigh,t and couldn't do the push-ups, not even the modified kind. So be proud of yourselves, people, for accomplishing this...remember slimmer doesn't always mean healthier or "fitter".

    Did day 1/30 earlier! It is a lot harder than I remember...I did like 3 days a couple years ago and found out I was pregnant.

    But, I have gained like 30-40 some pounds since then as well...So, it makes sense it seems that much harder.

    I almost puked. Jillian would have been proud...or maybe not...maybe she wouldn't be unless I actually puked? haha

    I could barely move after.

  • Just finished day 3 level 1.

    Day 5 Level one - it really does get easier as you do more, and the pain gets better too :o) I can barely feel my muscles this evening - yay!!

    Today is day 6 of level one. I use some 2lb weighted balls that I got with a pilates kit. :) I even convinced DH to do level one last night. It constantly amazes me how something can be easy and hard at the same time. :) I was one of the lucky ones that did not lose power so I was still able to work out even when I couldn't leave the house.

    Today will be day 3 of Level 1 for me. Day 2 has had me sore all over. Hoping I can get through day 3 if this soreness continues. I will do the best I can, but I am sad that I am so "undertoned." :( I'm just waiting for day 7 or 8 where this doesn't feel so tough for me. (I know, I know, then I'll be starting level 2 which will be even worse, right?)

    Oh well, then I guess I'm just waiting to see results!!!

    What's everyone doing for rest days? Does Jillian recommend 30DS every day or 1 rest day a week or what?

    I did first 3 days, then took yesterday as a rest day. Feel great now and the soreness is pretty much all gone, but we'll see how I feel after today's workout! :wink:
