The 101 in 1001 Challenge

I love a good challenge. I’m forever pinning those 30-day squat challenges to my designated 30-day-challenge board and promising myself that I’ll start them… on Monday. Or at the start of the month. Or the end of the month. Spoiler alert – I still haven’t done a 30-day squat challenge. I’m not sure I’d fit into my leggings if my behind got any bigger.

Then I stumbled across the 101 in 1001 challenge. I was intrigued, because you get to set your own little goals and tick them off and I like ticking stuff off, okay? I’m the sort of person who’ll write something I’ve already done on my to-do list and tick it off just to feel a bit mighty. Anyone else?

The 101 in 1001 challenge is essentially this: set yourself 101 little goals, tasks, activities, anything you like! You’ve got 1001 days to finish off your list – this works out as about 3 years ish (I haven’t looked at a calculator and am horrendous at maths so please correct me if I’m wrong…!) which is a nice long stretch of time for me to procrastinate with!

I’ve chosen a mix of important and silly tasks and challenges and goals for my 1001 days – let me know your favourite frivolous ones!

I’ll be updating this post as I go along – and sharing it to my Twitter every week or so, so you can see how I’m getting on! This isn’t a tag, but TAG you’re it – I’d LOVE to read some other bloggers’ 101 in 1001 challenges! Without further ado, here we go!
