That's it. Had great success in the past, starting again.

Also eating low carb.

Willow - I'm doing day 5 today and today is the first day I've not woken up feeling like I've been kicked down the stairs.

I was planning a rest day today but I don't feel too bad, so going to power through!

Day 3 done with the lighter weights.

Didn't feel as achey this morning so will stick with them for now - I have to be able to move my arms!

I am on day 21 and i think i have felt soreness for all 21 days. I feel like every time i get used to the workout, it changes or i add another class. But it is self inflicted pain, so i cant complain too much.

But i really see results, it is worth sticking to!

IwishIwasmoreorganised Thu 28-Feb-13 08:33:48

Where are you seeing the most change Alligator?

Alligatorpie Thu 28-Feb-13 09:45:28

Iwish - i am just smaller. My face looks way thinner, my back fat is gone, my stomach is way flatter ( but not flat yet) thighs are much smaller and bingo wings are almost gone.

I have gone from a tight 14 to a comfortable 12. Ideally i would like to be a comfortable 10 or maybe even an 8 (my pre children size - dd1 is 7 and i haven't got back there) but i am amazed I can do this much in 3 weeks!

I am on day 7 tonight, I am getting pretty bored of doing it so it is hard to motivate myself!

IwishIwasmoreorganised Thu 28-Feb-13 18:33:52

Thanks Alligator - that's just what i wanted to hear to keep my motivation up.

If I can get a more toned, flatter tummy I'll be happy!

Level 2 day 1 done.

TeaCupCrazy Thu 28-Feb-13 22:01:56

Can i join in? Im on day 8. Done L2 last night but went back to L1 tonight and really enjoyed it.
Going to try doing L2 straight after L1 at the weekend as i don't feel like i get a proper workout when i don't know how to do the exercises.

IwishIwasmoreorganised Thu 28-Feb-13 22:27:43

Day 4 level one done.

We're going away soon to a place without wifi (I've been doing the programme on YouTube). What should I do if I miss a couple of days? Do I need to go back to day 1?

Alligatorpie Fri 01-Mar-13 06:33:36

Iwish - you can download from youtube to your laptop. Search google for Real downloader, and follow the instructions. Ha ha ! No excuses!

But, if you do miss a few days, i would just pick up where i left off.

Day 23 today, not too bad. my goal is to do as many rock star jumps as Natalie.

IwishIwasmoreorganised Fri 01-Mar-13 08:29:24

I use an iPad so not sure that will work. DH might let me use his work laptop though and hope they don't audit what's on there! Thanks for that.

IwishIwasmoreorganised Fri 01-Mar-13 21:49:01

Day 5 done of level 1. Feel like I'm able to push myself a bit more today and might invest in some slightly heavier weights over the weekend!

niceupthedance Sat 02-Mar-13 05:58:38

It's day 8 for me today but I'm having a rest as I'm off to schlep round London. Still feel surprisingly motivated, but will be a challenge to do every day next week due to schedule.

Alligatorpie Sat 02-Mar-13 07:49:03

Day 24 for me. I was feeling really lazy and was thinking about taking a day off. Then dd1 told me she was gong to exercise with me, so I couldnt not do it. She ended up filling in her sticker book instead...but it was the motivation I needed.

IwishIwasmoreorganised Sat 02-Mar-13 22:21:06

Level 1 day 6 done.

Off to buy weights tomorrow!

niceupthedance Sun 03-Mar-13 10:14:56

Alligator you are nearly finished! How do you feel? Are you planning any more JM workouts after?

I did day 8 this morning, had to phone it in a bit as had toddler under my feet again. Also I really didn't want to do it after the day off - no more days off for me now!

IwishIwasmoreorganised Sun 03-Mar-13 22:26:00

Level 1 day 7 done with slightly heavier weights.

Since I started doing this I've slept terribly! I'm shattered now! Thought exercise should make me sleep better not worse!

Alligatorpie Mon 04-Mar-13 07:04:56

Day 25. Took yesterday off as I did a killer toning class.

Next week I am away for 4 days (cruise up the Nile: Aswan to Luxor) then home for a day then a week at a beach resort on the Red Sea. I probably won't be doing much exercising then, so will be ready to restart with a vengence when I get back. I dont think I will continue with the shred, I find it really hard on my knees - but maybe i will do an occasional day. Does anyone have a suggestion for a follow up workout?

Mrsrobertduvall Mon 04-Mar-13 07:10:36

St this in January, after cancelling my gym membership

I physically can't do it every day as I find my ankles hurt (and I'm 52) but I do it 4 times a week plus pilates.
I really enjoy it, find level 3 easier than level 2
Have just bought the abs one, so will try that this week.

Did't need to lose weight, bit have definitely toned up.

Lickitysplit Mon 04-Mar-13 11:40:26

I did day 10 yesterday and started level 2, tough going. I weighed myself at the weekend and I am heavier then when I started??? What's that all about?

niceupthedance Mon 04-Mar-13 12:37:23

Me too Lickety - I have put on about 4lbs, hoping some of that is TOM though.

Day 9 but I started level 2 today as was up for a challenge. Uh-huh. Plank jacks - killer.

IwishIwasmoreorganised Mon 04-Mar-13 12:40:30

Level 1 day 8 done today - it felt really tough for some reason!

Licketysplit I bet you've gained some muscle through these workouts which is why you've put a bit of weight on. What about your measurements?

I was looking forward to Level 2, plank jacks sound hideous though!

I've had to stop, my back is in bits. Just below the back of my neck hurts to turn my head and look up or down?

Hope I'll be able to start again soon though sad

Day 26 today. I ate cookies yesterday so really pushed myself. And feel better for it.
