100 Day Change -- Saying "No" to a Sedentary Lifestyle

I've been a full-time blogger for 6 months now, and before that I was working from home in technical support. Basically, for the last 4 years I've had a job that requires me to be sitting at a desk for majority of my day. And it's taken its toll on my health. Not only have I gained weight, but I've gotten little to no exercise. I'll be the first one to admit that working from home has made it more than easy for me to have a sedentary lifestyle...and now, I've had enough.

I'm saying "no!" to a sedentary lifestyle.

When I first saw Girl on the Move's "100 Day Change," I was inspired to use her initiative to kickstart this change. Baby steps is what I need, and will help solidify consistent changes to my day-to-day activity (or more accurately, my lack of activity). This is by no means me actively trying to lose weight; but if I end up losing weight anyway? Well, that would be great! But I'm honestly just trying to get my butt off the couch. 

The official start date of the #100DayChange starts on August 17, but I couldn't resist starting early!
