    overall i feel i did a decent job staying on top of my challenges, i did change one about half way through the event because i kept failing on completing it, but after wards my daily average points increased. this was a very eye opening experience, i never really payed attention to the little habits i had that played a big role in my Eco foot print. i will definitely remember to keep in mind the level of impact i play to the environment on a daily basis, and how a little change good or bad can have a huge impact.

    Well almost completed all my challenges today, but I got complacent and ended up leaving the water running while I brushed my teeth. Didn't realize my mistake until after I brushed my teeth.

    Other than my eat 1 meal cooked with organic ingredients challenge, i have accomplished my other three challenges. i think i might change my challenge to better suit my work/school scheduled. hopefully that will help  with decreasing my eco-foot print

    I was only able to meet to of my challenges yesterday, i got a bit greasy working on my car yesterday, so i took a longer shower,  but i will make up for that today by not showering, because I'm at school from 9 am to 9 pm, so i don't see the need to shower from sitting in class / library throughout the day. i should meet at least three of my challenges today, so it definitely a improvement from yesterday.

    Well for today i have stuck to my meal plan i set up for my self this week, yesterday i went out to bought all the groceries that i will need, unfortunately i totally forgot about the my one organic meal per day challenge. i have found this challenge the most difficult so far, last week i bought ingredients that were organic, but there were days i had to improvise my meals or change my meal plan due to work and ended up either not eating a meal with organic ingredients or mixing then with other ingredients that weren't organic. so i do have some felt over organic ingredients that i plan to incorporate in to my meals throughout this week.
