    Ive been doing great at my daily challenges. It has been nice bringing my own coffee cup and it keeps my coffee colder longer so it is a win win. I am continuing to leave my rain bucket out and use the rain to water my plants.

    I put my rain bucket out over the weekend and caught about two inches in my I think 5 gallon bucket. Ive been really enjoying working on meatless meals everyday and saving water

      I have a rain barrel and it is so awesome to collect water for the garden that way!

    I think I might add some actions to my list tomorrow because im feeling these are a little too easy. i am enjoying doing a meatless meal a day but i thick I can do more.

    Today was my first day fully trying the meatless/vegan meals. For breakfast and lunch I did no meat and I am successfully brushing my teeth without running water every time I brush them

    I am going to be skipping straws when I get coffee, turning the water off while I brush my teeth, save rain water for my plants in my room, and doing 1 meal a day vegan. I chose all of the actions because they seemed like easy additions to my simple habits I already have.
