I too will join you in this challenge! For me the challenge is to eat whole foods 80% of the time for 100 days.

On July 3rd I committed myself to what I'm calling "One Year and One Day to be Healthy".

I'm eating healthier everyday, moving more although not as consistantly, writing in a journal every day whether about my health and fitness or my emotions, and using and the spark coach program to help. Guess I inadvertantly have joined your 100 day commitment, but with 19 days head start and another 267 more after.

It sounds like a big challenge when you talk about it in days but honestly I've never felt so dedicated to being healthy (and ideally, losing weight since that's my biggest health issue essentially). So far I've done very well, and when I feel a small loss of momentum there's always been something in the mix of items I'm using to support my journey that have kept me on pace so far.
I've set a strenuous goal for the first 60 days to lose 30lbs. I know it's a bit more than the usual '2lbs a wk' you're constantly told, but I'm using this as my kick start to my metabolism that will help me power through the 2lbs weeks ahead. And, so far so good, because I'm 8days ahead of my goal (thank you work for putting me on a task that had me out of my desk chair and physically EXHAUSTED for a week, I'd never have made it that far without it).

Good luck on your 100 days, and go get it!!!!!!

I recently saw a post about a woman who made a 100 day commitment to exercise and posted her results daily on YouTube. It was very inspiring! I don't use the video camera.

However, I am going to join Sparkguy in committing to exercise for 10 minutes (or more) a day. I have a calendar and some stickers from the dollar store. I know! Super high tech, right?

Why not join me? I challenge you to come up with your own 100 day commitment? What will it be? Getting to bed on time? Not eating at night? Remembering to do something nice for a random person once a day? You can see what other people are doing at

The rules are that you can't quit. If you mess up and miss a day, you are not starting over. You are picking yourself up, dusting yourself off and finishing your 100 days. I am going to set an end date bc I really want this to be a 100 day streak for me, but if I need to go beyond my original end date I will NOT beat myself up.

I'll be posting in my status daily and I am starting today!

For some motivation, here is the link to the YouTube video
Happy Sparking!
