Today was our first day of No impact week!! I did not think that this day was really hard. If I had to use words to describe it I would say that today was a realization day- A day to remember what I would not be allowed to eat or use to make my goals achievable by the end of the week.
My day started like anyother morning would. I woke up at 7:20 in the morning and got ready for class and breakfast. The prior night, I took a shower and dryed my hair so I just woke up and straightened my hair. Gladly because my hair was already dry I did not have to straighten my hair as long as I usually do and at the intensity that I usually do. This was good by me because I saved energy. One of my major goals of this project was to decrease my meat intake. At breakfast, I ate at Curtis and was about to pick a sausage patty when I remembered that I could have my first piece of meat on wednesday-which was sad:( But you gotta do what you gotta do!! After breakfast, I brought my tumbler (That I got at Denison’s festival) and filled it with Diet Coke so I would not have to buy a pop (If you do not know me- I am sorta of addicted to Diet Coke for its taste and the caeffine take). The rest of day went well. I went to the library and I am used to using the electrical doors to open for me, but did not do that today! It was hard. At first I opened a door and then remembered so I let someone else go through the door and I chose the non-electric doors. After Lunch, I ate with my friends at Curtis and composted my food. I got a stir fry and finished all of it because I did not want to be wasteful because that would be a huge impact! Also this was a vegetarian option. Later that Day after 6, I went to Slayter to get Meal Exchange but I brought my own container for my grilled cheese and refilled my pop in the same cup. People looked at me weird when I was filling the pop but I think they thought I was stealing pop which should be frowned upon! Thus I completely understand the looks I was getting.
The one problem I see is that I will be staying up REALLY REALLY late the next few days because of an organic chemistry exam and I hope I can beat the tempetation to get a snack at around 12.
