101 in 1001 days - Day Zero Project 100 day update

Day Zero Project 101 in 1001 days - 100 day check up

Way back in March I began my Day Zero Project:  101 in 1001 days
 where I picked 101 goals I want to complete in the next 1001 days we're now 100 days into my challenge so effectively 10% of the way there so I thought I'd do a little update on my progress so far.
