Back in March I decided to make some changes in my day to day life.
One of them was to bring my own bags when I go shopping/ or simply carry my purchases out of the store if I forgot. I am happy to say that I have not taken a purchase out of a store in a plastic bag this year and I'm getting really good at bringing my own bag.
My second resolution was to start riding my bike. I started in early April and I have, for the most part, stuck to my resolution to ride my bike no less than 1-2 times a week. There were 2 weeks in a row that I did not ride, which was a combo of rainy weather and illness. Currently my goal is 3 days a week and I'm averaging 2-3 days. My co-worker is bringing his old bike in for me to look at and I can have it for nothing if I like it. Fingers crossed cause it has gears and everything!
Another goal that P suggested was that we would make our own lunches. He makes the meals for one week and I make the meals for the second. Overall I think we have both been happy. I do think he would be happier with larger portions, but really for lunch the portion sizes are appropriate.
1) reducing waste. Excellent!
2 and 3) reducing waist. Excellent!
