    Rough weekend but I still managed to get all of the challenges done, it did not come to me so easily over the weekend.

      we can be so distracted over the weekend and we need to keep our mind on track to meet our goals to help the environment.

    It has really surprised me on how used to I have gotten to this schedule in such a short time.  I'm started to do all of these actions without really thinking about it.
