Day 100! WE MADE IT!!


DAY 100!!  Alright friends... the end of the challenge is here!  The Google spreadsheet is HERE.  Follow through today so you can click that last X!  I hope everyone was able to get something positive out of this experience.  HERE is my original post, so those of you tuning in for the first time can get caught up.  My main purpose in doing this was to create a place of support, motivation, and inspiration.  Hopefully you pushed yourself a little (or a lot!) these last 100 days and discovered potential that you might not have known was there.  My mantra is "I can do hard things."  When life sucks, I try to remind myself that "I can do hard things."  Doesn't mean it's easy, but I know I can do it, whether it's resisting that cookie, running a 10K, or beating lung cancer.  We don't have to be weak... we can choose to be strong.  When I decided to change my life forever 3 years ago, it was hard.  I'm not going to lie.  There were days I felt like quitting.  170 lbs.  My body hurt.  I felt ashamed of what I had done to myself.  I didn't feel beautiful and didn't know how anyone else could either.  Such destructive thinking.  I had hope, though, that I could change... and I did.  I just took one day at a time, one choice at a time.  Eventually it got easier and easier.  In 8 months I lost 35 lbs. and have maintained for nearly 2 1/2 years.  I went from a tight size 14 to a size 4/6, running half marathons, eating healthy, and feeling happier than I've ever felt my entire life.  Being healthy is WORTH IT.  Don't waste another day with regrets.  Don't wait until tomorrow to make those changes.  Do it today!  
I hope this challenge was a jumpstart for a lot of you to get you to your ultimate health goals, whatever they may be.  Thanks for participating and inspiring me these past 100 days.  Keep pushing, and keep going.  And please check in from time to time and let me know how you're doing.  Love and hugs to all!!!

Abby (2nd one in on the left; participants Sharie & Steph on the right end also participated in the Century bike ride)- I made my goal of training for a century bike ride! I also was able to eat healthier. I tracked my calories for a few weeks and then realized I was making better choices with that knowledge and kept up the healthy eating and calorie observance on my own but I still indulged, I think that is ok sometimes!  I haven't lost weight, that wasn't my goal. I am still the same weight but I am sure I have more muscle. My legs are rock hard from cycling and my arms are getting toned from many weightlifting classes. My water intake is also up and I feel good! You were my motivation. My anxiety almost got the better of me but I had to finish that race to reach my goal and I did it without great pain, which meant a lot. I got up the day after the race with little pain, just pain from where my seat rubbed, so that doesn't count! Thanks, Jamie! We couldn't have done it without you!


Adrienne- I ran 2 half marathons and did my Little Red bike ride. I got a new PR at the Ogden race and I feel really good about my progress. I've lost about 12 pounds and even though the scale doesn't say exactly what I want it to, I feel better and all of my "skinny" clothes are starting to fit again. Yay! My eating could be better. I haven't been as strict as I could be, I think part of that is stress and a love of cooking. I have seen progress though so when the stars align and my baby sleeps through the night, maybe I'll need less cookies and diet coke. We'll see!
Annie- So, I have certainly had ups and downs in this challenge, but I must say: more ups than downs! :) My original goal was train for a triathalon, which I have been doing: swimming, biking, running...... Unfortunately the tri that I was wanting to do is the same week that we will be out of town, so I am going to have to find another one. I realized this a few days after the challenge started, so I picked 2 new goals: Count calories- record on livestrong.com, and run 6 miles in under an hour during my baby's 6th month. I have worked hard, and there is more work to be done- but I feel good about how things have gone. We are eating healthier around here. (Dave has lost weight too- just eating the healthier meals that I have been serving!) My baby is 6 1/2 months and I can run 6 miles in under an hour. I have lost 16 lbs  and 13 inches. I am under my pre-baby #4 weight, and 3 lbs shy of being under my pre-baby # 3 weight. Still more I'd like to lose----I'll keep working on it! :) Here's to the next 100!!!
April- I felt like I had a pretty big success with my goals, I was able to wake up earlier and I didn't need my alarm clock to get myself up earlier in the mornings, also the meals from scratch helped me feel healthier. I don't think I got sick quite as often as I did this time last year. There weren't really any physical differences since my goals weren't really focused on that.
Ashleigh (left)- So, here are a bunch of my stats and pictures from pre-pregnancy to 7 weeks postpartum, then I started my Whittle My Middle at 9 weeks postpartum all the way through 17 weeks, and straight from there I started your 100 day challenge. So as far as your 100 day challenge goes, it was from about 4 months to 7 months postpartum. Before the challenge, I kind of ran every now and then, but not very regularly. When I did run, it was maybe a mile or 2 at the most. My pace was somewhere around 11:00, but I also wasn't really pushing myself, and I was running on my treadmill which sucks. I go a lot faster and farther outside than inside on a treadmill. Anyway, crushed my goal of 3 miles in 30 minutes by coming in at 26:42 and I lost some weight and inches along the way.

Becky- I just wanted you to know though that, even though I didn't do fantastic (should be in bed right now as a matter of fact), I have done better with sleep than I have most of this crazy two years of border living. These 100 days have been about making choices that help me take better care of myself despite the junk going on around us. Thanks for the challenge. I have worked harder to find ways to be okay. And more than anything, I have found hope that the hard things are doable and might even get a bit better soon. Thanks for helping make 100 of the last 100+ days at this difficult posting a bit better. I am looking forward to setting new goals for my next 100 days.







Ben- I’m writing this for my 8 year old but just wanted him to know how proud I am of him for wanting to do this challenge, too.  He has practiced basketball every single day it’s been sunny outside.  He watched Biggest Loser with me all season and talks about making better food choices and wanting more exercise.  He’s on the right track to being a healthy kid and healthy adult.  Couldn’t be more proud!

Beth- That 100 days was rough! I'm so glad you motivated me to do that! I seriously never thought I could ever do that! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! (Goal- No sugar/treats for 100 days)



Bethany- I have totally FAILED at this challenge! I'm sorry! I should have known better than to commit my pregnant self to some kind of health challenge. I'm due with my #5 next week and not only that, but we are selling our house and have to move in 3 weeks! I have enjoyed reading your blog and I really am impressed by you. Thanks to Babycenter for helping me find such an inspirational person! Good luck to you! (Bethany, don't think of this as a failure.  You've been more conscious of your health, and once your life gets more calm, I know you will accomplish whatever goals you set for yourself.  You can do it!  And when you're ready to jump back in, I'll be here for support any time.  Good luck!)
Brooke- I have lost 17 pounds and two pant sizes. I have a lot of work left to do but now have more determination than ever. I have been considering trying out the 17 day diet to see if I can fit in some summer clothes that I have had tucked away for a long time.  Through this challenge I discovered a new love with vegetables and so has my family. We are eating at home almost all of the time now which saves money and we make healthier decisions. I feel so much better and some days it feels like I have more energy than caffeine ever gave me. 
Camille- I wish that the last 100 days could have been more of a goal specific challenge for me, but nonetheless I was grateful for the challenge and a push to just work harder! Of course the first half of the challenge was just trying to get through pregnancy! But my big goal there was to keep my weight gain low. Initially less than 15 pounds, then nothing. I ended up gaining 4 pounds during the last three weeks. I was happy with that. Within two weeks I was able to get to a scale and I was down 15 pounds less than my pre-pregnancy weight. Again I was happy with that! But where I felt I have succeeded with my goals specific to the 100 day challenge is that I have continued to exercise whenever possible and track my food daily. 
During our recent trip to Utah I had a goal to lose a few more pounds but I'm pretty sure I gained. I tracked for about half the trip, but it was hard to keep track of my pen and paper consistenly! I'm also still struggling to find the balance for my caloric intake while nursing. Hopefully I'll get that figured out really soon. 
Finally another goal I made during this 100 day challenge was to participate in a 5K with my sister, which we did Memorial Day! Despite the pouring rain, snow and having to bring a newborn with us....we did it and I even jogged quite a bit of it! We weren't in it for time at all, just the goal to do something together, but I was glad we did it even despite the terrible weather!
Thanks so much Jamie for the push to work harder toward a healthier life! I don't have an updated picture of myself, but I'll attach one of what I have worked hard for during this challenge! 
Cyd- I received this beautiful email from Cyd and couldn't even decide what to cut out because it was all so good... so I'm posting it all!  So proud of you, Cyd!
Elle (2nd row, outside left)- I have been feeling like a failure since I didn't complete my century. But I decided I need to reframe my accomplishments: I rode a 75 mile ride in may, then while returning from a 40 mile training ride I crashed 2 weeks before my century I felt like I had a really slow recovery with massive headaches, ribs out of place, and vertigo. I debated selling my registration, but decided to power through and do my best! So I rode 70 miles, about half with out holding on to the handle bars as to keep my headache at bay. So Jamie my ode to you is that you taught me through your 100 day challenge and your wonderful example to:
See my accomplishments through the clouds!
Never give up! 
Try my best, despite the challenges we face! 
We always have another chance to meet our goals! 
Thank you Jamie! Have a wonderful birthday! I love you and am so very thankful for your friendship!
Emily- My 60 mile bike race isn't until the 11th so I wont have ridden by the time you post everything but I am very excited for the ride. I have worked hard to prepare and feel good that I'll finish strong. Last weekend I went for my last long ride before the race. I went 47 miles in three hours! I am very pumped! The best part was that I felt pretty darn good afterward so I know I'm where I need to be for the ride. I didn't have a weight loss goal for your challenge, me and my carbs are too tight to be separated, but I would definitely say I'm in better shape than I've ever been in and it feels great!
Hailey- I am finally ACTIVELY working towards those goals I had at the beginning. haha I have been running 3 times a week now for the past 3 weeks. I AM SO IN LOVE WITH RUNNING! I also did a week long cleanse to kick off some healthier eating. I noticed such a difference in my energy as well as my cravings. I will be doing it again soon. Its a rough week but in the end the results are worth. I like this cleanse because although it was very restrictive in what you can eat on certain days. It wasn't just some liquid diet and I didn't have to purchase anything special or out of the ordinary for it. I am pumped for the Hood to Coast in August and hope I can reach my goal. 
Heidi (middle)- Overall I did very well at the challenge.  On days that I ordinarily might have taken a pass, like after working a night shift, I still hopped on the recumbent bike and spun away 10 miles.  I don't have my calendar with me - we're on vacation at the moment - but I hit personal records for mileage each of the last three months, each time clearing 100 miles of running and close to that on the bike.  I didn't do so great with the weights....bah.  Once I started tracking calories on Livestrong.com, I was able to drop 5 pounds within a 20 day span.  I intend to continue this to get down to a solid 133-135.  Right now I'm at 139-140, and fitting in all of the pants that were getting too tight for me.  I also finally busted the 4 hour barrier at the Ogden Marathon a few weeks ago and felt great at the end.  
Jake - I can't say that I met my goal perfectly.  I did not, in fact, run three days a week with the dog consistently throughout the challenge.  I would say I averaged two days a week, and a lot of it I ditched the dog so I could get ready for the big 5K.  I can say that this is the best shape I've been in for quite a while and I almost, so close, was able to run the entire 5K without stopping.  Which means I did have to stop and walk once, really, but just a couple months ago I couldn't even go a mile so this is good.  I'm going to keep it up, and get the dog more involved, so I'm a new man.

Jenni- Here is my update: I had to stop running due to some major morning sickness. I still think and dream about running again. I miss it! 
Justin (bottom right corner)
Goal:
·         workout 5 days a week

Achievement:
·         worked out 4 days a week
·         ran the Ragnar New England Relay race (my part totaled 23 miles out of 198)

I haven’t been good about keeping track of which days I’ve exercised, but I did end up working out 4 days a week (instead of 5). Not perfect but pretty good. 







Kale- I was successful! This is the first time since high school that I've worked out regularly for longer than maybe a month. And I not only reached my 500 calorie per workout goal, I sometimes doubled it. I worked out 5-6 days a week for the whole challenge. And to do this, I've been getting up every weekday at 5 a.m. I am so NOT a morning person, that this in itself is pretty big for me. I feel lots better about myself. I didn't lose any weight, but I'm happy where I'm at since I am looking more toned. I took measurements and I actually gained 3/4" on my hips/butt and a 1/2" on my thighs. BUT, it is muscle. Muscle that I've never before had, so I don't feel bad about that! Thanks for the inspiration! I really needed it. And because your 100 day challenge was ending, I started P90X yesterday. Hopefully I'll have great results. Awesome results from so many people...and all thanks to your challenge. 



Kameron- HASHIMOTOS DISEASE!
That is what has happened over these last three months. :) I am totally happy to give myself grace. I had freakishly crazy hypothyroid which is just now finally getting normalized.  (Kam, so glad you got this figured out.  I have hypothyroidism and have been on synthroid for over 4 years.  Hoping you get your levels evened out very soon and can get back to feeling like your normal self again.  Hugs.  Love you, friend!) 
Kanien- I am turning 30 in December and reading everything you have done has made me want to do my own challenge. I wish I would have found you sooner. This weekend I am running my first half Marathon! AH! I have gone from saying I will never run to running a half on Sat. It is crazy what the thought of leaving your 20's will do to you! Anyways, I just wanted to say thanks for inspiring me to shoot for the moon and welcome the 30's in style! 
Karyn- My update-lost 20 lbs, have 10 more to go.  Started running again, but have a long way to go on the running thing...  This has been fun!  Thanks for the accountability!!
Kristy- I wasn't smart enough to take before pictures three months ago, but I've lost about 12 pounds in the last three months and I'm not done yet. (This actually makes 26 lbs in 6 months...only 14 more to go.) I feel healthier and stronger. Even though I didn't reach my exact goal each week, it was good to know that others were working too. And really, though I'm not as far along as I'd like to be, I'm much farther along at nine months postpartum than I've been with any other kid.


Liz- I didn't do everything that I set out to do as well as I wanted, but I did exercise more. I did coach soccer. I did get my annual bloodwork and physical exam done. Best of all my husband and I joined Weight Watchers. He lost 9 lbs his first week and I lost 4 lbs. It will be much more successful working together.


Michelle- Hi Jamie I just wanted to thank you for inspiring me to get moving again:) I am totally a closet follower of your 100 day challenge and I have made a commitment to myself to workout at least 5 days/wk. Having a family and working 50hours/wk doesn't tend to leave a lot of me time so thank you for encouraging me to make the time.
Naomi (3rd in from left)- Well I wish I could say I did better but I am happy with what I did accomplish! I trained and kept to a 4 day a week schedule for the "Run for Risa" on 4/23. It was at Hagg Lake and was one of the first nicest days of the year! The run was awesome, even though there were hills I felt great and was happy with my time of 31:22. Probably my favorite 5k so far! I continued to run and got a group of people together between church and friends, I think about 12 of us total to run the Starlight Run - 5k on 6/4. It just happened to be the hottest day of the year so far. Some of the girls were nursing injuries but we all pushed thru and finished it! We had a lot of fun doing it together and we are looking in the future for upcoming runs we can do together! Signing up for races will keep me running!
As for the weight loss and sleep goals those have not been conquered yet. I did lose a few pounds but nothing to talk about. Still have 20 lbs to go and hoping the bed by midnight thing happens some day - probably when the kids are in school and we all have to start waking up earlier.
This was a fun challenge to do and to see so many people joining forces to be healthier was awesome! Thanks for the challenge!
Rebecca (left)- At the beginning of the challenge I struggled just to get myself to work out at all and was really out of shape.  1 mile was hard running and my motivation was low.  You really helped inspire me to get going- especially on rainy, yucky days when I didn't want to do anything.  Sometimes I would go out and run, for a while I used a treadmill and I also did some exercise videos inside too.  My goal was to work out four times a week and I sometimes had to work out twice on Saturday to make it, but I really did great in the beginning.  Then, I was sick for a bunch of the middle weeks and only worked out a few times, but I am happy that I am ending strong as well.  I overcame my fear of riding my road bike (I had an embarassing crash two years ago) and have been riding, swimming and running.  I am excited for the triathlons I have this summer.  I'm still not where I want to be, but I ran a five mile loop with Dallin in the jogger one day, can easily do 2 miles runing now, am finding new ways to workout with kids, and am building my strength and confidence.  Thanks for everything!!
Selena (middle)- Thank you for the encouragement, Jamie! I was doing really well in the middle of the challenge. I was even able to complete the bench step aerobics DVD - Advanced Athletic Step that I worked so hard on. The month of May became very busy and I wasn't able to work out as much as I wanted but I still tried to make time. In June I'm going to walk around the track at Hatch Park 3x a week for an hour while my kids are taking Recreation Classes. Then in July I'll start up with Bench Step again. The reason I like Bench Step so much is the DVD's I have include cardio, ab workouts, strength training, weights and stretches. Most of my DVD's are by a girl named Cathe Friedrich. She is awesome!
Shana- I don't have 'before and after' pictures but I do have this one take just a couple days ago after hiking Ensign Peak in Salt Lake.  I actually started my workout program a few months before you started your whole thing but joined up with you anyway as a motivation.  I reached my weight goal a couple months ago and while I've been working on keeping the weight off I've also been working on toning my body -- I think this picture of me shows that.  I've totally scaled down my thigh area and increased the tone in my abs and arms.  I'm loving the way I look and feel, I am skinnier and in better shape than I have ever been and it feels awesome.  Thanks again for putting this together.
Sonja- My update is that I went from 137-138 to a solid 133-134 and I now know I can live w/o chocolate. I choose not to though and am looking forward to devouring chocolate as soon as the 100 days are over. :) 
Steph- I have met my goal weight and I feel great! I didn't get to bed every night by 10pm but I have done WAY better. I have been getting up at 6am and it has allowed me to get more done in my day which was much needed. I have totally lowered my stress level. I am doing very well in my recovery process with my Achilles. I can't jog yet but I have been doing a lot of strength training, biking, and swimming. I have stuck to my S diet but have added to it and I lost 15lbs in 5 weeks. I pulled out all my summer clothes from last year that didn't fit and they do now!! So excited!
Tiffany- I have lost just over 20lbs since the end of March! I did it by eating Paleo and doing CrossFit. I know I've lost inches but I haven't measured so maybe I will try to do that sometime today. Thanks for doing this challenge!
Tina- So I had to modify my goals, but i am happy with where I am. I have been getting up at 5 everyday and getting some study time in to prepare for the day. I have been stepping up my role as mom and wife, and am seeing some real improvements. Due to scheduling with Jer, the gym has not worked out so well. So i changed my focus. I have been trying to work outside in my yards (front and back) and tame this wild mess we call a home. I have been putting in a lot of hours on weekends, and at least an hour every day. May not sound like a lot, but pulling stumps is hard for me. We actually have a back yard that the kids want to play in now. I have set up a summer plan, with friend support to step up the fitness goals. So it is slower than I wanted, but I need to learn patience with myself. Thank you so much for inspiring me and so many others. This challenge has kick started me!
Verenice- I started out real strong, and then somewhere in the middle of month two, I went down hill and was hit and miss. If this would have been a 30 challenge I would have done SO much better. I seriously have a lot of kinks and issues to figure out with myself. I appreciate you doing this. Seeing all the updates, including yours is very inspirational.
Me- As for me, I'm happy with what I was able to accomplish in 100 days, and can't wait to see where I'm at in another 100 days, and another, and another.  I lost 5 lbs. which is HUGE for me.  I was a solid 138-140 when the challenge started, and now I'm 133-134.  I lost 1/4" from my neck, 1/4" from my chest (don't really like that one so much), nearly 1/2" from each arm, 1" from my waist, 1 1/4" from my hips, 1" from each thigh.  I was a small 8/big 6 on Day 1, and am now a small 6/big 4.  Eventually I want to get down to a small 4 and I know I'll get there in a few more months.  I deadlifted 200 lbs. during this challenge, something I've never done until now.  My fastest 5K was 32:15 in February, and during this challenge I ran a 5K in 29:54.  I ran my first post-lung surgery and post-cancer race, the American Lung Association's "Fight for Air Run/Walk" on June 4th.  I ran the 10K (6.2 miles) in 1:01.  This was a huge accomplishment for me, especially when a year ago I didn't know if I would ever be able to run long distances again.  I also signed up for the Hobble Creek Half Marathon... my favorite race and the one I had to miss last year when I was recovering from my surgery.  The big day is August 20th and I can't wait!

Hey Jamie! I didn't ever get you my update. I just wanted you to know though that, even though I didn't do fantastic (should be in bed right now as a matter of fact), I have done better with sleep than I have most of this crazy two years of border living. These 100 days have been about making choices that help me take better care of myself despite the junk going on around us. Thanks for the challenge. I have worked harder to find ways to be okay. And more than anything, I have found hope that the hard things are doable and might even get a bit better soon. Thanks for helping make 100 of the last 100+ days at this difficult posting a bit better. I am looking forward to setting new goals for my next 100 days. Love you! -Becky

Jamie! I totally spaced posting an update for you! I've been super busy this first week of school being out. However, I was successful! This is the first time since high school that I've worked out regularly for longer than maybe a month. And I not only reached my 500 calorie per workout goal, I sometimes doubled it. I worked out 5-6 days a week for the whole challenge. And to do this, I've been getting up every weekday at 5 a.m. I am so NOT a morning person, that this in itself is pretty big for me. I feel lots better about myself. I didn't lose any weight, but I'm happy where I'm at since I am looking more toned. I took measurements and I actually gained 3/4" on my hips/butt and a 1/2" on my thighs. BUT, it is muscle. Muscle that I've never before had, so I don't feel bad about that! Thanks for the inspiration! I really needed it. And because your 100 day challenge was ending, I started P90X yesterday. Hopefully I'll have great results. Awesome results from so many people...and all thanks to your challenge.

I was a slacker too. I am sorry I didn't get this to you sooner. We are leaving for Oregon in a couple of days, and yesterday I kept thinking I will get to it...but then at 9:00pm last night, I realized I hadn't. But I just wanted to let you know that I was a total fail. Sorry. I started out real strong, and then somewhere in the middle of month two, I went down hill and was hit and miss. If this would have been a 30 challenge I would have done SO much better. I seriously have a lot of kinks and issues to figure out with myself. I appreciate you doing this. Seeing all the updates, including yours is very inspirational. You have always done such BIG things and I have truly looked up to you all along the way. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jamie. You deserve the best.

Wow, it's neat to see all the progress that everyone has made. This has definitely helped me get off my butt and get running, so thanks for the motivation. I'm feeling really great, but the sight of my pictures on there are really embarrassing. Yikes. I think we might want to take some down or replace them with a nice, NORMAL picture of me. Those are for specific eyes only ;-) Anyway, good job to everyone and keep up the good work. I'm glad that I've had something to be held accountable to in order to get my training started for the H2C. Now, I've just got to keep it going.
