100 Days of Active, Round 2

If you’ve been following the blog for any length of time, then you’ll remember my failed attempt at 100 Days of Active last year. Last year, the idea was to be active everyday in the days leading up to my birthday.

Well, it didn’t happen. I tried. But not hard enough.

So, I’m bringing it back. For no other reason than to give me a good goal, and something to keep me moving.

100 days of active

I’ll be tracking it on here. But I’m not going to be doing it daily. I’ll check in once a week with my weekly activities, and weigh in.

Now you’re probably thinking “Is it 100 straight days?” and the answer is yes. The last time I tried this, I gave myself leeway to skip doing anything active on certain days. Which led to failure. Yes, my goal is something active everyday for 100 days.

30 minutes of activity every day for the next 100 days. Now, it doesn’t mean a hard workout every day. It could be something as simple as a lunchtime walk. But the idea is get me in the mindset of making time for exercise in a busy schedule.

This will run just about 14 weeks. I think it’s like 2 days over. So I’m planning out the first 8 weeks. Weigh in’s will be on Thursday, and the posts will be on Thursdays.

I like having a schedule. Otherwise, I can’t handle life.

The first 50-ish days of 100 Days of Active

Week 1: March 5 – March 11 (Yes. It starts tomorrow!)

Week 2: March 12 – March 18

Week 3: March 19 – March 25

Week 4: March 26 – April 1 – We leave for Las Vegas on March 30th. Essentially my 100 Days of Active for the days we are there, will be walking all over the strip. Seriously.

Week 5: April 2 – April 8 – We are back on April 4th from Las Vegas.

Week 6: April 9 – April 15

Week 7: April 16 – April 22

Week 8: April 23 – April 29

So for the first week or two, I anticipate being very cranky. More because I plan on trying to force myself out of bed in the morning to try to get a walk in on the treadmill when I can. And I really like sleep.

I hope you follow along. This will be a hard, but really good, challenge for me. I need it. I need to force myself to get active and doing something like this will remind me that it’s not about having time, it’s about making time.

I’ll be posting images throughout the challenge on instagram (follow me!) and will be using the hashtag #100daysofactive.

Wish me luck. Here we go!

  1. I like your plan. 30 minutes is certainly do able no matter how busy a persons life is. I agree getting up early at first is hard! but it is worth it in the end.

  2. I love this idea! I am trying to stay more active and usually make it to the gym about 4 times a week – one day I will make it 7 days a week but 4 is good for me right now. Good luck!

  3. Love this! I recently got a FitBit, and WOW. I had no idea how little I actually move!!! Quite revealing. It took me two weeks to finally get to where I was consistently hitting the 10,000 steps (terrible, I know), now I’ve bumped my goal to 12,000, and hope to go up from there soon. I look forward to following along!

  4. Good luck! I wish being active was more easy… it is so hard to find motivation! We used to have an eliptical and that helped a lot but it bit the dust. I haven’t really been able to get back into it since then. Hopefully when spring comes walking will help!

  5. What a idea! I may have to try this soon, gonna give the weather a little more time to warm up. I’m much more likely to be active when I can be outside with the kiddos. :) Good luck!

  6. Maybe I will join you! I am exercising more, but to make sure I actually do something 100 days straight would make it a habit. Maybe you should do a link-up with everyone who would be willing to post on their blogs as well. It might be really neat.

  7. 7 Habits of Highly Effective people discussed a 30-minute a day “personal time” to get some exercise, read, do something to improve yourself. I love this! Good luck.
