march 2016 goals

Happy March!
march 2016 goals
I'm currently reading The Rosie Project. I'm enjoying it! If you're curious, that's my Get to Work Book.

At the beginning of every month, I look over my overarching goals/projects/resolutions for the year. This year I hope to blog often; read at least 15 min. every day; exercise (incorporate strength/interval training 3x a week and reach 10,000 steps a day); document our memories; declutter and "redecorrange" our home; meal prep; eat mindfully (eat more greens + vegetables and eat healthy desserts); drink more water; embrace routine; keep a prayer journal; get out alone; get out with each of my family members (for one on one time); and write fun, seasonal manifestos.*

In March I plan to:
  • Go back to that zumba class
    • I went to a new zumba class last night because I set a goal to do that in February and yesterday was my last day to do it (as it was the last day of February). I really liked the class! The instructor was energetic and very nice. I want to go back.
  • Prep the backyard for our vegetable garden
    • We have raised, garden beds and plan to use them again this year. I'm hoping our salsa bed will do better (tomatoes, jalapeños, and onions- yum).
  • Frame and hang some art/pictures
    • I've been itching to hang this print in my kitchen. 
  • Walk outdoors at least once a week
    • I could use some fresh air to boost my energy. (See #5).
  • Refrain from checking my phone first thing in the morning
    • This is a bad habit. I'd like to at least have had coffee before I check my phone.
*I blogged about each of those goals in more detail at the beginning of the year here: January 2016 Goals. I set monthly goals to get more specific with my yearly goals. There may be something specifically inspiring me this month, for example, that won't work (or I'm not feeling) at another time of the year. I talked about my goal-setting process in more detail here: Goal- Setting: 2016
