    Final day of the challenge, but I am going to do my best keep things going even when it is done. This was a great opportunity to reflect on the little changes I can make to live a more sustainable life.

    I spent lots of time walking today, even though it was quite rainy at times. I walked to Mom's Organic Market to get some groceries, and also walked around campus this evening in the eerie but cool fog. I ate plenty of organic veggies today, and also bought organic groceries while I was at MOM's including oats, cereal, eggs, and ground ginger.

    How to be (almost) zero waste going to a track meet for the whole day:
    -Pack your lunch and dinner (organic ;) ) in reusable containers
    -Resist temptation at the Wegman's stop- go in to fill your water bottle but don't buy anything in disposable containers or plastic bags
    -Save your race numbers to decorate the back of your door rather than throwing them out right away (hope this counts...)

    Reflecting on the day, I now recall that I had my pre-race LUNA bar in a wrapper and threw it out- darn it! Next time I will bring the Luna wrapper back with me and dispose in the special bins at MOM's Organic Market. 

    So close.

    Going strong, over halfway through the challenge! Even though it was chilly I bundled up a took some nice walks for mindfulness today. I also prepared and ate all organic meals!

    Yesterday and today were pretty successful! I took a quick 5 minute shower by skipping washing my hair, then I also used my reusable coffee mug to bring a nice cup with me to class. I also used my reusable Tupperware to pack a lunch to bring to class as well! I did about 45 minutes of yoga between class and sleep, and journaled before I went to bed. Today's rain makes it a little more challenging to be out in nature, but I am hoping it will clear up before tomorrow!

    Energy: I make sure to only plug electronics in when they need to be charged, and unplug them when they are fully charged (phone, laptop, etc.).

    I start every morning with my cup of coffee and then I make a second one in my to-go reusable mug to take with me to class. Nothing beats having a nice warm cup of coffee in class!
