101 Goals in 1001 Days. #dayzero

This year instead of picking a few big resolutions, I decided to do the Day Zero Challenge, which is 101 Goals finished in 1001 days. 

I heard about this challenge from Dawn at Cheap is the New Classy and I was instantly excited. I love making lists and crossing off things, it just makes me feel productive! I can't wait to make 2013 a productive year.

My goals range from relatively short and easy, like read a book in 1 day, or go to the zoo, to goals that will take almost all of the 1001 days to complete, like get my Blue belt in TaeKwon Do.
