Day one has been not as hard as I thought. I usually sleep with my fan on every night to block out the sounds of dorm room living but I sacrificed my peaceful sleep last night and unplugged it. I slept completely fine, so this has made me realize I don’t actually need it. I made sure all my plugs were only plugged in if I used them.
After AM practice I returned to my room and didn’t turn the lights on the whole time I was getting ready for class! Unfortunately there is no way I can give up my Keurig this week…..5am practices and no coffee is a recipe for disaster.
After night practice I tried to take a shorter shower, but it is VERY HARD to not soak in the hot water after being in a freezing pool for 2 hours. Tomorrow I will try to shorten it to 6 minutes.
So far I think I have done very well and can’t wait to see what challenges I will face tomorrow.
