The final day of NI week was probably my best day. I think I started to get into a routine of bringing a reusable mug everywhere along with remembering to avoid using more than one napkin at a meal. I’ve found this to be true with other things in life that things get easier once you get into a manageable routine rather than trying to change everything at once.
Today went pretty well I would say. I managed to use less napkins during meals and I was very careful about the bins that I would put composting vs. recycling in. I did however get a cup of tea from slayter, but forgot to bring my mug, so I just used the paper cups they have there.
So today I had to go down to the grocery store and I brought a reusable bag with me. I was happy I did that because sometimes the cashiers only put one item in a bag and then they get a completely different plastic bag for another item when they both could have fit fine in one.
Today has gone much better in terms of diet. I successfully remembered to bring a mug to Slayter for the three times that I got a tea from them today. For breakfast, I had a lot of fruit, which was a nice change since Curtis normally doesn’t have that great of a selection of fruit. However, I doubt the pineapple or strawberries were grown nearby, but it was one of my goals to eat fresh unpackaged food, so I guess that qualifies?
My NI week started this morning at 5 when I woke up to go to practice. Normally I would eat a granola bar before heading down to the pool but today I decided to eat an apple instead since it’s my goal to eat fresh and compostable food at least 1/2 of the time that I would normally eat a packaged snack.
