Welcome to the Tiniest Month Challenge

February is so short it seems like it begins and ends in a flash.

What better month for a challenge, then?

So here’s my challenge to myself, and by extension to all of you:

Pick something and stick with it. Every. Day.

At least for this tiny month of February.

Some ideas that have rattled around my brain:

  • hit my Fitbit steps goal everyday
  • take time to read for pleasure
  • eat vegetables
  • mindfully give a compliment
  • write
  • avoid social media
  • stay out of Starbucks
  • call Mom

We all have things that we “should” do that we neglect. Since this is such a short month why not pick one and stick to it? It’s only 28 days, after all.

In an ideal world I would do ALL of the things on my above list everyday, but I don’t. I’m going to pick ONE and stick with it, but what to pick?

I see my ideas in roughly 3 categories: mental health, physical health, and social connectedness (which, really, is a part of staying mentally healthy I suppose). For me, physical health is the most urgent of those needs at the moment. To that end I choose the first goal: to reach my steps goal each day.

I would love to have company on my tiniest month challenge. If you’re interested please comment with your tiny month goal, and don’t worry if the month has already begun, you can start anytime you want!

I'm a middle aged woman doing the things that middle aged women do and trying not to beat myself up. I'm living the life I choose with the man I love, the teenage son who impresses me all the time, and the most adorable pup ever rescued from the euthanasia list. We live in the heat of the Southwest, where I regularly sweat through my Lane Bryant bras.

  1. Well you have just motivated me to go for a walk. I have had a lazy day due to feeling exhausted with low blood pressure. I have a Vivofit watch and have reached a 7 day streak – I’m off now to keep it up for the rest of February 🏃‍♀️😄

  2. I have been trying to reach my step goal 4 days a week but I’m going to push myself to reach it every day for the month, for this tiny month of February, right beside you. We need to be fitbit friends 🙂

  3. I’m going to make my steps goal everyday, and hopefully fit into my uniform pants by the end of the month.

  4. My goal is to drink 90+ oz water every day.
