Checklist for a successful 100 day challenge

Or, in my case, for not flubbing it on Day 1.

1. Make sure you have enough food at home that you have no excuse to eat out/eat poorly. [ ]
2. Find ways to make the commitment easier [X]
(I have made sure that my other two officemates are going with me to crossfit tonight-if I feel like I am motivating them and not just me, it is a lot easier. Also, knowing Tricia is going through this, too, is helpful, in that I can't lie to my [former] roomie! That would be wrong and bad.)
3. Establish goal posts to reach along the way. [ ]
4. Look cute. [ ]
(This may sound weird, but I think that finding "cute" [or at least not "I feel fat" workout clothes helps me stay motivated. If you think this is malarky, I won't be offended. This will have to wait, as tonight I use my last clean sports bra/workout pants, and when you reach the last ones, inevitably it's not pretty.)
5. Get pumped about the workout. Today's workout involves one of my favorites: the press! What comes after that in the WOD I consider my penance for eating southern food yesterday in excess. Either way, I'm excited to get back on track. If it's hard, it will be that much more rewarding. Or something.


  1. GoooOOOOOOO, Meagan! I'm there, too, sister. You SO got this.

  2. I too failed on several counts today -- didn't wake up early enough to go to the gym (so did 100 burpees in the back yard.) Didn't pack a lunch (settled on an overpriced veggie/meat bowl from Chipotle) and was completely out of clothes I wanted to wear today! That said, your tweet about having eaten clean today totally pumped me up! Go us!

  3. I am doing great! Yesterday, my crossfit gym did 100 pullups 100 pushups 100 situps and 100 squats. I can't remember the name of the WOD but I wanted to kill her. Now that I understand how the burpees challenge works I will have to some "make-up" on that.

  4. Way to go, Allison! Thanks for checking in--it's so much easier to stick with this when others are in it with you. I missed crossfit today so I have LOTS to make up tomorrow.
