100 Day Change
150 days ago I began a running streak. During my first run back on March 7 I had no idea how long this streak would last or where it would take me but by Day 30 I really started to notice a difference and by Day 100 I realized I had made a life change. And then I started getting messages from other people who started their own running streaks and it hit me…every single one of us is capable of change if we take things one day at a time.
So I would like to invite you to join me in making a change in your life over the next 100 days.
This is not a program. This is not a system. This is not a 16-step plan. This is YOU picking ONE thing that you can do EVERY single day for 100 days

Barb @ A Life in Balance
I love this challenge! I’m going to sign up to walk daily. I got into a funk, and need to get back into my walking routine.
What a great idea and a brilliant way of connecting the blogger community http://www.fadedspring.co.uk/
Really nervous about starting this, I’m not the best at keeping goals. But, I will give it a shot. I am going to commit to exercising 10 minutes each day.
I’m not the best at sticking with goals, but I am going to give this a shot. I am committing to exercising for 10 minutes per day for 100 days.
You can totally do it! We’ll cheer you along!
Pam @ Hodge Podge Moments
This is perfect! I’m going to aim for working out everyday. And working out means 30 minutes at least.
Great goal! And you can definitely do it!

I love challenges! I can’t live without them. I constantly come up with challenges for myself. The last few… 30-day challenge (I did various intense workout videos for a month to get back to pre-baby size 0). 30-days of reading (I read 100 pages every day) It’s not a good time for me to start a new challenge now because we are travelling for 2-weeks and then have house guests for another 2 weeks. But I will be sure to keep your website in mind and come back for motivation.

I didn’t find a way to share the post? Just the “pin it” button.
I think the only built-in share options are the “pint it” button and the click to tweet option
Great idea!! I’ll have to think of something and come back!
Jamie @ Coffee With Us 3
I love this! I love the ideas as well, especially complementing our spouses– you would think it would be simple to say one nice thing a day, but I know many people who could use that challenge. And I also love the handwritten notes– I still send them, but they aren’t something many people receive.
I love handwritten notes and think more people should take the time to send them! Messages via email, text, etc just tend to get lost in the shuffle of life but when I get “real” mail I take the time to sit down and really savor it!
I’m in! I want to challenge myself to a daily workout that includes at least 50 sit-ups and a walk. I love the other ideas, too. Great way to give positive support to so many others. Thanks!
50 sit-ups and a walk is a great daily goal!
I want to commit to building my business, so I will commit to making 5 contacts a day, whether phone, text,or Facebook.
What a great goal!
Love this inspiring idea! Your energy is infectious Julie!
First, I just have to say, you are so inspiring! I FINALLY decided to add fitness back into my life and I started yesterday! But, I will definitely take on the challenge to continue!
Thank you Shelly! And so glad you’re joining the challenge!
I see lots of great suggestions!
Now to pick one that will be challenging and doable.
Cathy @ Our Mini Family
OK yes I am signing up! I need some motivation to stay consistent–thank you!
I’m so excited you’re doing the challenge and that we can connect in person about it next month!
If I don’t have to go to NYC to help family I’ll try to come back and join for the challenge. Great ideas!
Bonnie @ Living a Fit and Full Life
I love this! I love monthly challenges and this is pretty similar, just a bit longer.
I love challenges as well, they keep me on track!
To be fully committed in lifestyle changes that are healthy which includes daily exercising of some type as well as eating healthier and being conscience of the eating choices that will improve my overall health and to lose weight the correct way and consistently.
Great goals DJ!
I love this! I am going to sign up! Im not sure what my challenge will be yet!
Glad you’ll be joining me for the challenge!!
I would like to stay within my calorie goals for 100 days. For big run days more calories and less on rest days. I am also tempted to take out sugar. Maybe???
I say go for it with taking out sugar! Or maybe at least make a goal to cut back on your sugar for 100 days…and then it will be the holidays and you can enjoy treats again. I am actually experimenting with this during August by giving up all treats and really limiting my sugar (there is some sugar in my fruit, etc)
I want to walk at least 20 min on treadmill everydsy. I use to and quit
You can do it!
I just signed up. I started a new workout Monday and I’m about to finish my first week! I have never made it to a full week before!
Glad you’ll be joining us for the challenge!
