    I was more mindful of how long my showers ran, less dependent on my space heater and devices, and finally managed to achieve a reasonable work/life balance. I didn't exercise more and my meatless meals were basically just breakfast, but I consider this challenge a success.

    Biked to class for the first time in a while. I actually conquered this one hill that I always have (well, had) to walk, which felt awesome.  Now to go stretch.

    My best friend sent me a postcard coloring book, so today I replaced an hour of screen time with some good old  shioned coloring.

    It's not one of my challenges, but I've started to notice how many chocolate wrappers I throw away every day. Maybe I should buy it in  . Or, I mean, I guess I could eat less chocolate.

    It's so much easier and simpler to put together a meatless breakfast. I might just stick with this.

    One fun bonus of doing the "Use a Reusable Mug" challenge is feeling REALLY fancy at coffee shops.
