Your sentence is a little bit of a mouthful.
I would recommend these more idiomatic expressions instead:
I did my best.
I did the best I could.
I did whatever I could.
I did anything I could.
These expressions mean that you put the best effort you were capable of in attempting to do something, even though it may or may not end up as a failure.
