This post is part of my 12 Mini Goals Challenge.
Small daily habits can make a big difference over the course of a few weeks, months, or even longer. In 2016, I am going to focus on a new habit or mini goal every month. In January, I focused on Daily Movement or Exercise. In February, I focused on cutting down on evening snacking.
My March Mini Goal: Complete 30-Day Pilates Challenge
Because my goals in January and February both dealt with healthy living, I was going to change up March and move to a goal within the home. But when I heard about The Balanced Life’s 30-Day Pilates Challenge, I knew I wanted to make it my March goal.
The Challenge officially starts on March 1, so the timing was perfect. This challenge is FREE and you can sign up here. Every morning Robin e-mails out a 10 minutes Pilates workout that you can do from home.
There is a different focus each day of the week. See the image below for the breakdown of each day’s focus.
I considered also making it a goal to do the video right away in the morning before my daughters got up. I decided against it and instead I am making it a goal to do the video before supper (or preferably by lunch) each day. In January when I was trying to get 10 minutes of exercise each day, I struggled to get it in if it was not completed by the evening. A few of the days I was doing a quick online workout video at 10 PM so I could check the day off as complete. It’s hard to be motivated to get the exercise in so late. In March, my goal is to do the video earlier in the day so this isn’t a problem.

If you want to join me, print off the March Challenge Tracker. The March tracker looks different than the calendars for January and February. I wanted to leave room for additional notes each day. I wanted to note any days that had especially great workouts in case I wanted to revisit them later. I also plan on noting the time I do the day’s workout. Feel free to just place an X on the day when you complete your workout if you prefer.
