I missed more than five days, but I feel I made up those by adding in the kickboxing workouts.
Level 1 is decent, good for getting your feet wet again. I don't like Level 2, it kills me. I never mastered it, but I found myself hating it every time I did it. I love Level 3, it's fun. Sadly, it doesn't keep my heart rate up as much as Level 2 because of all the floor work.  I love most of the moves in it though, and I shall continue doing both the levels until I've mastered them.
I failed utterly at doing all the advanced moves days 6-10, but I was able to start to add in a few reps of advanced, or some moves I could do the advanced, but I couldn't do the whole workout advanced.
I would recommend this to anyone, eve those with knee problems like me. Anything I knew would aggravate my knees, I did something alternate. I marched, I squat-and-punched, etc.

So as you can see I got tiny results, and it makes me happy. 


  1. I'm doing this right now, trying to lose weight before my high school graduation. I found this on tumblr, and I'm inspired by you and your perseverance! I'm on day 6! I've never done a workout consecutively like this before, but I have so much more energy now and can feel I'm building muscle everywhere! My starting weight was 185 lbs. I'm hoping to get down to 160 by graduation, but we'll see. Thanks for sharing!

    1. It's challenging but knowing you kicked you're own butt is great. :) Blog about it, even if no one is reading, it will help. Since your goal isn't outrageous, if you have something you're trying to fit into, try it on before you worry about the numbers on the scale. Mine didn't go down a lot, but my clothes fit differently. Level 2 is intimidating but yelling at the screen helped me.
      Glad I could inspire you

  2. You have some amazing results!! I can definitely tell a difference in your stomach! That is where I want to lose. I am currently doing Ripped in 30, but plan on doing 30DS not this Monday, but next (after RI30 Week 4)... I would have started with 30DS if I had known that is how many people were doing the routine, but didn't realize until I started looking at RI30 results online. I also just purchased the Extreme Shed and Shred, and will do that after I complete 30DS. Anyways, I am real inspired by your loss! Great job, and I hope you reach/have reached your goals! :)
