    Finish day 2 today! Much better today at doing everything than Day 1. I find that the planks with arm&legs raises are impossible if I do them Natalie/Jillian style, but I really don't think I'm doing them right Anita style. I don't feel like I'm working hard and am thinking it should be hard. I really like the supermans! Also today I'm feeling my abs for the first time since level 1 = )

    I'm feeling my abs more than in the previous levels. I love level 3. I feel awesome after doing it.I think when I'm done with level 3 I'm going to go through the whole video again without the rest days just 30 days straight. Then I'm going to go to her other video.

    Just did Day 1 of Level 3. I think I like it better than Level 2. I like the ab moves, and I enjoyed adding weights to the cardio moves in circuit 2. Still don't like doing things in a plank-y position, but that's only because I find them difficult, so it's important that they're included in different forms in this level as well. Hope it's going well for all you guys :)
  • Level complete! Down 5 pounds and 10 inches overall. Pretty good for 30 days of torture! Now am going to try Ripped in 30.

    Funny thing, I've been to church with a *kitten*... really not nearly as much sweating as you'd think. But then, she understood the message. ;)

    Level 3, Day 4 for me today. I've been super busy the past week and couldn't fit it in. Today was the first day after 8 days off. It hurt. It hurt real bad. Hopefully I'll keep it up now and get straight through to the end.

    Just finished the challenge! In typical last-minute fashion, I completed it on December 15th, even though I started on Nov. 1...

    But the MOST IMPORTANT thing is I finished it! For the first time I saw an exercise challenge all the way through to the end :-D

    I lost 2 kg (about 4.4 lbs.) during the time, and I'll take my other measurements tomorrow morning before I start eating for the day hehe. And I'll take some after photos, too, but I'm not sure if I expect to see any changes. We'll see! But I feel good, so even if the changes over the last 45 days aren't very visible, it's just a step on my journey to being healthier and looking/feeling better.

    One thing I've learned is that even though I think this is an effective program, I NEED more variety in my workouts. I think for the new year, I'm going to aim for calories burned or time spent exercising goals each month. This way if there's a day I just don't want to do Jillian (or whoever,) it will be easier for me to find motivation to do something else, as long as I'm doing something.

    Thanks for being there to help me on the tough days, everyone! I hope we continue to motivate each other in 2013, in another challenge, or just as MFP friends :-D

    I finally made it to level 3. I know the challenge is "officially" ending but I'm gonna keep going. Level 2 was tough!! Those V-raises where brutal!
