I’m a little frustrated with myself today. I thought by day three of this project I would be doing better reducing my impact and following my goals. Unfortunately, I generated quite a bit of trash today. It didn’t help when I walked into Curtis for lunch and it had disposable products. I felt I generated a huge amount of waste with napkins, paper plates, a plastic cup and plastic silverware. This led me to spring to get Slayter for dinner. I tried to Veggie Stir fry bowl which I found quite tasty. When I was done, I realized that I could keep it and use it as a reusable container. This made me feel better about my meal
Also a letdown was forgetting my disposable coffee mug this morning. I did force myself skip my coffee. This was rough. By the time 10:00 rolled around I figured I would just make do without it.
So far I still haven’t driven anywhere. Didn’t consume any meat today. Kept my morning shower down to 8 minutes. Trash and food continue to be the dominant problems for me. Keeping my phone charged throughout the day is hard for me. It died this evening and because I was out of the room I went without it for a couple of hours. This made me think about our talk earlier about how attached we are to our electronics. There’s no good reason that my phone should die in a couple of hours and just shows how much I really am attached to it. I’m hoping tomorrow if its a nice day to try and sit outside and remove myself from all the “ho-hum”.
