Does anyone else want to keep me on the straight and narrow company?

MostlyCake Mon 28-Jul-14 16:40:18

Just did it. Found it quite easy. Do you think it's ok to carry on tomorrow with level 2?

Think I will ache in the morning though!

Morning! I felt fine yesterday and was of a mind that level one was too easy....i am in pain today! Am trying to talk myself into doing day two....

let me know what you do!

MostlyCake Tue 29-Jul-14 19:50:32

Day two done! Ouch....

girl84 Tue 29-Jul-14 21:14:22

Brilliant!keep it up.

Day 2 done. I did level 2 and enjoyed it. Nearly didn't get myself off the sofa to do it lol. Level two is much harder but there is lots of encouragement.

Let me know how u get on tomorrow. ..

Day 3 done!! I am in pain!

Well done in doing level 2! I'm definitely not fit enough to try it yet... I'll watch it today though to see just how nails you are!

I'm having trouble with the side lunges with front arm raises, I can't quite get how to bend to the side without my knees going over my toes...going to look for a tutorial today. I only have one set of hand weights as well and while they're fine for bicep curls and shoulder presses etc but they are way to heavy to lift out to the front.

Girl84 we are one tenth of the way through! Only 27 days left to go - in under a month we will look and feel great!

DachshundGirl Wed 30-Jul-14 21:32:12

I've just done level 1 day 4. It's definietly getting easier, I managed all the cardio today with no stopping. I refuse to look at level 2, level one is enough for now!

girl84 Wed 30-Jul-14 22:08:35

Had my sisters wedding rehearsal tonight in the window I have to do the dvd. I'm getting back on it tomorrow.

Yey we r doing well, looking forward to completing the challenge and feeling happy with myself for doing it.

Maybe try and do the side lunges without doing the arms until u get used to it. I didn't have dumbells day one so I used bottles of water. U could use a tin of beans or something so u have a lighter weight.

Keep going ladies!keep updating. X

Day 4, well I stupidly tried level 2....... am going back to level 1 tomorrow!! Oh. My. God. girl84 you are nails for doing it!! So impressed smile

Hi dachshundGirl welcome to the agony party grin

MostlyCake Thu 31-Jul-14 09:39:42

After a shower and a half hour recovery my arms are still trembling.... i think my weights are too heavy! I have to switch to tinned peaches half way through as it was so painful!

PrimalLass Thu 31-Jul-14 09:55:21

I always join these threads then do nothing, but I will start tonight. I have a big night out in 2 weeks.

MinionDave Thu 31-Jul-14 10:00:00

I'm starting it today too - desperately need to tone up and lose about a stone. Wish me luck smile

girl84 Thu 31-Jul-14 11:15:31

Mostlycake well done for trying. Atleast It gives u a short term goals by working towards level 2.

Baby asleep, dvd on....

Come on girls!

girl84 Thu 31-Jul-14 15:46:36

MazzR Thu 31-Jul-14 23:07:17

Starting tomorrow!! Have done it before and it's so effective. Have a wedding in September so it's all systems go now!

Lullabylullaby Fri 01-Aug-14 05:39:27

I'll join you. I'm on L1D5 today although yesterday I had the most delicious brownie.

Lullabylullaby Fri 01-Aug-14 05:44:12

Mostlycakes I was having trouble with lifting both arms with the side lunges and now I lift one arm at a time. I find I can concentrate better on my legs and I know my arms are still getting a work out.

MostlyCake Fri 01-Aug-14 14:38:52

PrimalLass and MazzR you can do it!

MinionDave how did you get on?

LullabyLullaby good tip. I swapped my hand weights for a tin of peaches and managed much better!

are you all dieting or doing healthy eating as well? lullaby I'm with you - I have a massive slice of cake yesterday.....

MostlyCake Fri 01-Aug-14 14:39:24

Oh! Almost forgot. Day 5 done grin

Lullabylullaby Fri 01-Aug-14 20:41:26

Day 5 Whoo Hoo! I'm trying to eat healthy. Weeks days are easier as the kids always like making treats St the weekend. Try and have good breakfast and lunch and light dinner.

What an inspiration! I've been plucking up the courage to start 30 day shred for ages.

I am new to it though so a question: are the youtube routines ok or do people find the dvds better?

If the youtube ones are good I'm going for it tomorrow! too much wine has made tonight a write off
