    I found my neighborhood association and will be going to an upcoming meeting to start getting involved - something my husband and I have talked about doing for some time but the Ecochallenge pushed me to actually do it!

    This weekend was tough - between a sick husband, running errands and catching up on sleep, I was a bit distracted from my challenge. I did manage to let a good friend know how important she is to me and once again, that felt so good to say and I can tell it made her happy. The practicing gratitude challenge is a good one!!

    Today was tough, didn't make it. Here's to tomorrow though!

    Shared my Ecochallenge progress on social media and fulfilled one of my challenges!

    Went to the pumpkin patch with my son, daughter in law and their new addition and said no to pie and taffy...no processed sugar for me! Plus I got my gratitude in. :)

    Hanging out with my son and his wife and new baby and I am so grateful for them!

    I sent a text to the breeder we got our dogs from who has become a friend and let her know how much I appreciate her and all of the advice she gives us when we ask her anything....it does feel good to let people know you care.

    The practicing gratitude challenge is tricky! I thought about three things I was tahnkful for and meant to write them down like I'm supposed to, but was so busy with housework and walking the dogs that I forgot. So I don't get to say I met that challenge but I'm staying strong against sugar so it's a 1-1 day - could be worse!

    I feel so good when I avoid processed food and especially sugar. It was hard to be at a happy hour last night and not have a glass or wine with everyone but I stuck to my soda water!

    I can't wait to see my good friend tonight after work -I'm going to practice gratitude by letting her know how much her friendship means to me!
