Today turned out really well and I’m happy to end No Impact by participating in Relay for Life, finally finding a way to give back. I was able to be perfect again in my quest to be a vegetarian and I am really starting to think that it should be something that I should keep up with.
I finally went a whole day without actually eating any meat. It is’t that it was hard not to, sometimes I just don’t think about something like turkey on a sub. However this project is making me look forward to summer where I will be cooking my own food and will be able to choose exactly what I want.
Today has been a good day, especially with all of the beautiful sunshine lighting up everything. Having sunshine makes not using lights much easier and really picks up my spirits! My electricity use hasn’t been too bad today, but I watched some TV with my friends who were already watching play-off hockey and soccer. My water use has still been great as I am planning to only showering on Tuesday and Thursday.
Today I made some mistakes, but overall I have still been doing a good job of keeping up with my goals. That said I ate meal-ex for dinner, which turned out to be a bad idea all around. Not only did I accidentally get turkey on my sub, every item in my meal from my sub wrapper to the drink cup ended up being trash.
With the start of No Impact week, I have had to change a few aspects of my life. I feel that I am good about not using much water or creating trash, so my focus is on going vegetarian and not playing video games. Things really haven’t been hard today, but it is only the first day so I am sure that I will encounter some problems later on.
