    It's hard to not purchase anything but food and water when random necessities pop up and when self-care comes into play. I am willing to spend money on myself or those around me to promote self-care. #therewillbeotherdays

    Watched the documentary Forks Over Knives! I learned how much our food is affecting chronic diseases in America. This is causing me to be more intentional with the food that I eat.

    The motivation to do 30 minutes of physically activity is so real right now.

    This is probably the first day where I won’t complete everything. Makes me think about how work and school can take so much of your time. #itsokay

      I am also trying to find balance in my life. It is so hard when you want to do so much. But often, it makes us too busy and distracted. Good luck!

    In Union City, my family has kept large furniture that we do not need in our garage. After researching where our nearest recycling depot is, I can go home during winter break and get rid of the clutter in our garage!

    I learned that the Attorney General Becerra is the one makes environmental and public health decisions in CA. Due to the current political climate, Attorney General Becerra will push against Trump to ensure that CA will be able to adopt and enforce its own protective laws. #themoreyouknow

    Y'all, I have been noticing how fast foods and grab-n-go restaurants uses a lot of disposable items which contribute to the excess trash we make. This is making me be more intentional with what/where I eat. Mind blown! #awareness

    The first day of my challenges were great! My favorite part was eating outside and walking with my significant other. I missed being grounded by nature and I am glad that I am trying to fit it back into my life again.
