Great idea.... I love the idea of little goals...... first increase water to recommended amount each day. I will have to write a list for the other things
Love as if you have never been hurt!

3.Get moving every day

8.Create a meal rotation so that everyone takes a part in feeding the family
9.Get fiber recommended by doctor (25-35) per day

I LOVE this challenge/idea! Here is what I have so far. I do best with very specific and small goals (doing 'more' or 'less' of something just ends up being something I eventually drop, so I tried to avoid those for me). I haven't done most of these yet - but the plan is to add them one at a time as the first ones become second nature. If I start slacking on earlier ones, I'll scale back some until they're solid again, and then start adding again. A lot of these I've stolen from previous posts, because ya'll have some amazing ideas!
Motivation moments for each of the daily tasks:
Tell folks about 1 day of accomplishment.
Celebrate 1 week with hand written certificate posted on the wall.
Celebrate 1 month with a Facebook Post and printed certificate (get dollar frame).
Celebrate 3 months with another FB Post, a New Certificate (with victory photo), and a hand/arm/foot/leg massage.
Celebrate 6 months with another FB post, a new victory photo, a timeline poster, and ... ???

Started Mini-Goals 13Nov 2012.
Current mini-goals (added 28 Nov 2012):
1) Keep drinking 8+ glasses of water and tracking food.
2) Do a total of 20 fitness minutes a day.
3) Take 1 parade-action a day [I am volunteer recruiter for our local St Patrick's Day Parade and I always keep things to the last minute - hopefully this year it won't build up and throw me off my weight loss goals! If you live in the Raleigh NC area and want to volunteer, send me a message!]
I wanted to check back in.... THIS CHALLENGE HAS BEEN MY GREATEST MOTIVATOR... And it was teh best healing tool of 2012, and such a time of growth. :D !!!!
When making my list, I kept askin myself, if my health wasnt an issue... WHO would I be? WHAT would I do? What would I not be afraid of? What would life look like? And then I got a bunch... some big, most little and doable steps... like my goal is to walk in a 5k and one day run a marathon, but now, i'm not allowed no where near that and not even allowed to run at all.... so i have to work up to it, creating goals of walking for 15min, 30min, 1mile, 2mi, etc. :D
I had a heartbreaking loss this year, and had all these travel guides/magazines for a family vacation I'd been planning with the son we were trying to adopt. When things fell apart, I had all those guides around as a reminder of the son I no longer had... so I used those things to make a goal/ motivation poster of my 100 goals, plus inspiraitonal quotes and pictures. For each goal I accomplish, I get to put a 3d paper rose sticker on my poster, so I can see as I'm learning and growing, there's huge beauty coming to my life.
Thanks for this amazing idea... seriously, it's been HUGE for me!!!
I don't have to get there fast... I just have to keep reaching for my goals, and keep moving towards them. Slow and steady wins the race!
Looking at everyone elses' lists has been motivating! I don't think I can come up with 100 right off the bat, but I'm starting with 10:
1. Drink less coffee- drink more water!
2. Cook at home more often and find quick, healthy meals I won't mind cooking after a long day at work
3. Find my way to the gym three times a week
4. Walk on my lunch break two times a week
5. Make vegetables a bigger focus in my recipes and snacks
6. Spend more time outside and less time on the computer/ipad
7. Move around more at work- take the stairs, walk across campus, etc.
8. Lose the first 10 pounds
9. Spend some time each day looking at pictures, blogs, and articles that inspire and motivate me
10. Refresh my attitude and stop dreading the upcoming holidays and try to enjoy then for once
My mini goal list
1. Drink 143 oz of water daily (half my weight)
2. Discover new vegetables
3. Find atleast one healthy recipes per week
4. Lose ten pounds by this time next month
5. Remember to take it slow, the process to get fat took many years.
6. Make No more excuses about exercise. Do the dvd (Walk at Home)

I printed mine out and have them hanging on my office road box. I laminated them so the things that are week long goals - I can simply write on the paper with a dry erase mark and then if I have to start over no worries. I have stars stickers that I am placing beside the goals I have completed. Just coming back to the site to update my online one! It has been a great Motivator for me. It helps me to remember what i want my daily life to be like.
