    My motivation was that the challenge was a commitment of only two weeks.  This enabled me to make a priority of the challenge each day of the two weeks.  I was not 100% faithful, but better than before.  Thanks.

    Great idea - EcoChallenge. Thanks to everyone at NWEI. Thanks to all the Marylhurst participants. Saw many "Ghost Leaves" on the extraordinary gorgeous day!!

    Oh! I didn't do so well with the 15-min outdoor walks. Clearly that one is something I can work on going forward. However, remembering to turn off water during teeth brushing is a habit I've solidified! I thought I was pretty mindful about that to start with, but saw times when the water was running when it didn't need to be. Hooray!

    I did great with all of my challenges except for one day.  I forgot to power down my computer one night this month. **hangs head in shame**  On the other hand, I accomplished 5 challenges each day this month except for that one challenge on the 26th.  I would definitely call that a step in the right direction!  According to the measurements, I saved 15 pounds of CO2 and 96 gallons of water by making these four changes in my daily habits.  The lovely thing about this challenge is that it really does create good and lasting habits!  Let's do this again next year so I can develop more excellent habits for the future!

    Onward and upward. Will work to keep up "challenges" post end of EcoChallenge.

    I had so hoped to get more decluttering done and more walking in.  But just because the "challenge" is almost over, I'm still committed to working on these things!

    If our office uses plastic cutlery at lunch, I take the dirty utensils home, wash and return them for future usage.

    On my walk... part of the Pacific Flyway! It's that time of years.

    Watched the documentary Fresh. Advocates for healthier, more sustainable food. After watching this movie, I am moved to seriously consider my food choices and purchases!

    I change into flannel PJ's and fluffy socks when I get home. Lighting more candles and night to keep lights off. It has been very relaxing. Taking more time to reread my favorite books.
