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.
The January Mini Goal: Daily Movement
While I get 45 minutes of cardio in a few days per week, I am realizing how little exercise I get on the days I don’t get a workout in. This is especially true in the middle of winter when there are many days that my daughters and I are in the house all day. I would be disappointed to see the number of steps I take some of those days.
My goal in January is to move for at least 10 minutes every day. This could be a quick walk outside, a short online workout video, or a few sets of burpees and other floor exercises.
If you want to join me, print off the January Movement Tracker. Every day you meet your goal, place an X on the day.
Feel free to set your own daily goal. You can instead track the number of reps you are shooting for. You can track the number of steps you take each day. If variety is key to your exercise, list a few ideas of what activities you want to do throughout the month. It will help if you start the month with a list of ideas, so if you get bored you already have a few ideas written down.
Here are a few ideas to get started:

I would love to have you join the 12 Mini Goals Challenge. Sign up for my mailing list if you want to be e-mailed the challenge each month. If we get to a month where the goal doesn’t fit into your life, you can always tweak it to be a mini goal that works for you.
