A Lot Can Happen in 100 Days

every so often, my sister giselle, challenges herself to make a change for 100 days. it differs from time to time, but her latest conquest was to workout for 100 days, focusing on weights to help prevent osteoporosis. she is such an inspiration! her hard work has also inspired one of our other sisters (i have a LOT of sisters. seriously.) to set her own 100 day goals. i'm not usually a bandwagon type of person, but i need a pick-me-up, so i'm joining in the fun!

my motivation in this is mostly about baby #2. we plan to continue our fertility treatments later in the year and i need to be physically and mentally prepared for all of the injections and, hopefully, the pregnancy itself. therefore, high gear is where i need to kick it into!

so...my goal is to run for 100 days (taking sundays off) starting june 4. yup, monday. the only glitch is that we're going on vacation for 12 days at the end of june, so i'll have to tack those back on as an extra 12 days. totally doable!

but wait! there's more! ;) you can join me! i've decided to host this challenge for anyone who would like to participate. your 100 day goal doesn't have to be fitness related, either. it can be whatever you want it to be, whether you choose to go to bed by 10pm every night, eat the recommended number of servings of vegetables every day, do a daily blog post, stop shaving your legs...okay, please don't choose that one, ladies. anyway, it can be whatever you want!

to participate, just go here and follow three simple steps.

as people join, i'll add the blogroll to that page and we'll do progress reports along the way, for those who want to, and as people complete their challenge, they'll get a big shout-out so everyone can celebrate with them! feel free to join at any time, because this is going to be an ongoing program (i have SO many goals i need to work on).


i hope you'll join us, because, as my sister said, "a lot can happen in 100 days."

I LOVE this idea! My friends and I started a workout challenge a year and a half ago - since then we have all worked out 5 days/week without missing a beat. (And I ran my first 25K earlier this month.) It's amazing what a little accountability will do for you!

I hope you link up your challenge this week - it's perfect for {living the width}. Thanks!

This is a great idea! Glad you and your sisters decided to focus on one thing for 100 days, and be excellent at that one thing! Right now I'm tackling 30 day challenges... not sure I'm ready for 100 days, but I might catch you on the next go-around.

what an awesome idea!! and your motivation for the 100 days...man, i wish i could join you...like, literally join you on a few runs. i was just saying how much i wanted to start back running. i'm thinking about it for the next few weeks, though i know my dr (and me) won't want me to continue once we get back in the game.
you rock! and i'm looking forward to watching your 100 day journey...it's exciting and i love your determination, carlia.

i hope your week has been good and that the weekend treats you all well.
thinking of you lots <3
thank you for your kind words always!

This is a great idea and I love that you chose running - I'm not a runner so I'm more likely to choose sitting on the couch and watching TV for 100 days straight. No wait, that's not a good one. I'll look to others for inspiration. :)
