Today was definitely an eye opener. Not only was it easier than I expected, but also more enjoyable.
I woke up at 5:00 AM today for swim practice and I usually eat a piece of pb toast before, just to fuel my workout. I also usually use plastic silverware and a paper towel but this morning, I used regular silverware and no paper towel. After my workout, I took a quick five minute shower (a big goal). Not only did I save time, but I realized a 20 minute shower is not necessary for me. I went to breakfast at Huffman around 8:00, and had an english muffin with peanut butter. I did not use a plate or napkin. I also brought my water bottle and reusable coffee mug to fill up.
Throughout the day, I followed relatively this same routine. The only obstacle I encountered was turning my air conditioning off. This upset my roommate, and she turned it on immediately. Although she has asthma, she likes the AC for comfort, but it also uses a lot of energy. My other obstacle I encountered was my goal of only taking one shower a day. I forgot the fact that I do two workouts a day, both involving intense sweating. So after my afternoon workout, I absolutely had to take a shower. This was not only for my sake, but also for everyone else’s. So I’m revising my goal. Two showers a day, however, 10 minutes max total. We will see how that goes! Happy NI Week everyone! 🙂
