I recently read an article listing changes you could make, each having a significant impact on your health, if you would do them for 100 consecutive days.

I am fascinated with my approaching 50th birthday. You could say borderline obsessed but let’s stay with fascinated just to sound less extreme. When I read the article I was 123 days away from the “event.” I selected a few items to attempt, with the anticipation of hitting the second half of my life feeling good.

I work for Mercy Health System’s Noah’s Ark team. We’re a group of 10 individuals looking for innovative health care solutions. Microsoft recently loaned each of us one of their Microsoft Bands so we could get a feel for its features. We’re looking for ways to incorporate wearable health devices into our future projects.

Today is day 100. I’m counting down to “B-day” the big 5-0! My Microsoft band and I will be tracking the progress.

I plan to blog each day. Each post highlighting my healthy goals progress. I also hope to share the humor I’m finding in the daily shock of realizing I’m no longer 23.
