Well, DAY THREE was good. It was by far the best day so far; without too many mishaps. I am also very impressed with myself because I have managed to stay a vegetarian so far. Although, I must say it has not been easy. The one mishap I did have today was that I forgot to bring my coffee mug to Slayter and at the time I was in desperate need for coffee, so I bought one (although, I did recycle and did not use sugar!). That was really the only trash today that I created that I was not able to recycle or compost. This whole week so far, I have begun to be very conscious of the waste that I create. Now, every time I am eating a meal in Huffman or Curtis I will only fill my plate to the amount that I know I can eat. I guess I have learned that it is better to put a little food on my plate and then get more food, rather than fill my plate with food and not eat at all. And although this is a very simplistic idea, I never really took the time to focus on it and recognize how it can be such an easy way to minimize one’s trash. I also must add, that it feels really good to be so conscious of food, not just for the amount of trash, but because it does feel good to avoid processed foods and eat lower on the food chain. So, so far, I am feeling good!
