Today was good except for one big exception. I drove my car! My friend asked if I could help her go pick up three cakes and I said yes. It did not seem like a good idea for two girls to try to carry three cakes up the hill. So, I caved and drove my car. I only drove about 2 miles though. Which still puts me under my original goal of driving less than 5 miles this week.
In a sleepy haze this morning I almost forgot and used the treadmill at the gym, but then I remembered and ended up running on the track. So I met my goal of avoiding the treadmill.
I ended the week with a lot more trash than my goal. My goal was 15 pieces of trash and I now have 20.
I got my shower down to 3 minutes this morning which was my goal! It helped that I only had 20 minutes before I needed to be in class.
Overall, I think this week was a success. It made me think a lot more about my impact and how I can be a more environmentally responsible human. It also felt nice to help pick up trash yesterday, shoutout to Summer for the great idea for the giving back portion of this project. I hope I will continue to use my own cup for coffee whenever I can, take shorter showers and walk places more often after this week!
