My 100 Day Fitness Challenge

On October 24th I started a group on Facebook with some of my online friends and their friends to maintain 100 days straight of fitness activity for at least 30 minutes a day. I was doing really well until a few weeks ago when my ITBS started getting the better of me. So for the past two weeks I've fallen off the wagon myself but am very happy to hear about others who continue on daily and are finding a new routine in their lives to help them be more fit. It's not about losing weight, although that is an added benefit, but rather to change our lifestyles from what may have been a predominantly sedentary one to one in which we take responsibility for our own health and well being without just "hoping" that all will go well. So, as of last Thursday when my official PT sessions began I have completed my 30 minutes of activity daily whether it be the dreaded elliptical to take the place of my running, walking the dogs or a vigorous cleaning of the house, but I will continue with my activities no matter what!!


  1. Good idea and I wish I had read about the 100 day challenge. I did a bit earlier stop smoking and I totally feel the difference. I am also walking more but I owe that to "Chica." She is my cousin's dog who is visiting me. You GO GIRL!!!!

  2. I wish I had joined when you mentioned the 100 day challenge. I need to change healthwise for the new year and would need some motivation. I'm rooting for you! :)

  3. It's never too late to join! If you like I can add you to the group. Just let me know!
