    Final days. I have to say I didn't do as well over the weekend, but still feeling energized and ready to make changes.

      Weekends are tough! I still haven't gone a  day without sugar! I accidentally bought a bag of cookies I'm unable to stay away from:(

    Trying to keep my 3 meatless meals a day going by making Shakshuka. Including local red peppers, onions and eggs.

    The thing I am really enjoying about the challenge is even though I'm thinking about how to meet the goals I chose, I also find myself doing things that were on the list but not specifically goals. Once your in the mindset a lot can happen!

    Whoops deleted yesterdays post on accident. Today I wasn't able to take public transportation because I had a dental appointment, that being said I refused the dental bag of goodies (plastic wrapped in plastic) and have recently found a plastic free refillable dental floss online made in Maine!

    My parents-in-law took us out for a meal last night as they were headed home today. I remembered to bring my own containers to the restaurant to bring leftovers home in! No waste.

    Have been having variable success. I set a goal for consuming 3 meatless meals a day. A series of house guests and extenuating circumstances means I haven't completed this all days. On the other hand it wasn't a goal, but my husband and father-in-law added extra insulation to our attic this weekend, so we've at least increased our energy efficiency.

    Day one of the challenge! Feeling energized and ready to spend this time reflecting on choices and making actionable changes.
