    One of the challenges I'm having a hard time with is unsubscribing from catalogs. I'm planning to move again soon and feel like I'll just have to do that all over again once I move... so I don't have much motivation to sit down and get that done :( Only one day left to motivate myself to do it before the challenge is over! Yikes!

    I got a nice long bike ride in! I was half tempted to stay on the couch but I motivated myself and got out there and it felt sooo good!

    I brought a reusable water bottle from home today and am washing my coffee mug out now to go get me some coffee from the local shop! Woop! I'm having trouble getting outside instead of in front of a screen with this dang weather. Does going out to a bar instead of watching Netflix, count? lol #nope

    I feel like the really hard part is logging over the weekend. I didn't use any disposable cups or bottles over the weekend! I guess, that's reward enough. ;)

      I figured out how to go back and update what I did over the weekend! YAY!
