Day 9 - Level 3

Level 3 done. So now I've completed 3 rotations of Levels 1 - 3 and I'm going to switch it up again.

Now I'm going to alternative Levels 1 and 2 with Level 3. Tomorrow will be Level 1, then the next day Level 3, then Level 2, then 3, 1,3,2,3. As Level 3 is the hardest, this should kick it up another notch.

I'm a bit discouraged though. OK, that's probably an understatement. I weighed myself again today and I was back up 1.3lbs. How did that happen in 1 day?! I'm frustrated.


  1. Okay, first of all, you lost me on the circuits and levels. I guess because I don't own the video!

    Second, do NOT weigh yourself daily!!! Our weight fluctuates at least a couple of pounds every day ~ weight is affected by so many things ~ so it's best not to weigh yourself too often. I'd prefer to weigh myself only twice a month, but I find I need it weekly, just to make sure I'm on the right track!

    Don't be discouraged. Your bladder was maybe fuller; maybe you were wearing a thicker pair of pants; maybe your muscles had had more work already then at the same time yesterday when you weighed yourself.... it all adds up.

    And if you don't believe me, wait until the last minute to go to the bathroom, quickly weigh yourself first, do your thang, and then weigh yourself again! Or even just with, and then without, pants. EACH can make well over a pound of difference!!

  2. I should've said rotations instead of circuits - that was too confusing. I'll change it!

    The DVD has 3 different workouts and instead of being called Workout#1 it's called Level#1. They probably did that because the workouts do get progressively harder as you move on to the next level.

    The "real" way of doing this workout is to do Level 1 for 10 days, then Level 2 for 10 days, then Level 3 for 10 days. I'm just rotating through them instead of doing it that way - to make it harder.

    Make sense now?

    I know you're right on the weight thing. I guess the part that's discouraging is knowing that, for those exact same reasons, I may not have actually lost that 1.1lbs on Wednesday.

    But - I will not weigh myself again until next week!

    And I will not get discouraged and start pigging out after thinking it doesn't matter anyway!
