100 Day Challenge - Day 100

I have been inspired by Frankie and Pip to commence a 100 day challenge. For the next 100 days in a row I am going to eat well [binge free], sleep well and train hard/move every day. The finish date of the challenge is 3 November for Pip and I which turns out to be Melbourne Cup Day [Frankie is a week ahead of us].

It would be fabulous if you could join us by cleaning up your act for the next 100 days. It could be as simple as drinking water every day, walking 10,000 steps or meditating. Pick a behaviour(s) you want to change and if you do it consistently for the next 100 days it will be embedded in your subconscious as automatic by the beginning of November. There is a cute new ticker in my sidebar to countdown the days -->

Weight loss should be a secondary goal because it is not always within our control -- but I know that you will all have that magic figure in your head so what the hell -- let's go for it just in time for Summer !!

I wonder how long it will take for my ankles to return? I have never seen my legs look so bloated and full of fluid and my knees ache. I've actually frightened myself a wee bit. I now understand that it is possible to poison yourself with food. Eating boatloads of crap ends RIGHT NOW!

Leave a comment if you are up for the 100 Day Challenge. Today is Day 100 -- Let's GO GO GO!!

UPDATE: Something weird happened because this post disappeared and I lost all the comments attached to the post. Luckily I had already saved them for a 'meet the team' post later today so don't worry - I've got you if you commented earlier. Your blog is in the special blog roll on my sidebar -->

It is not too late if you still want to join in - the more the skinnier!!


  1. ooh awesome! I am actually excited about this and you know your right, this can't be just about weight loss, well for me anyway, I do have a goal weight but it needs to be about developing these habits again, and not abandoning my healthy lifestyle everytime something sucky happens. Thanks katie!

    Perfect timing! Count me in. I'm not blogging myself but will definitely embark on this challenge. For me it's about doing planned activity and reducing the crappy food I consume. Bring it on!

  3. Hi Katie- I just want to say I love reading your posts. I will love to be involved in the 100 day challenge if it is not too late. I will have my first day as of tomorrow as I only read about it today. Even though I am already on a challenge this 100 day challenge has given me even more motivation. If it is too late I will just keep reading your posts and follow myself. Thanks for the inspiration and the challenge!


  4. @Amy - not too late - you're in.

  5. Hi Katie,
    Me too I'd like to join the challenge if it's not too late?!!..I've had chocolate fudge cake in my fridge so it's going in the garbage today! I sooo need a push these days, this could be fun too!!!

  6. Is it too late to join the challenge? I would love to lose 20 lbs in 100 days - to get to my goal of being under 150 pounds (currently 166.5).

    Can I join?

  7. I'm in! I want to go 100 days without sugar and some form of exercise each day.
