    To my team, sorry I started late in the month but hope my efforts added to our goal and winning points! Tonight going to make Portabella Mushroom burgers (meatless), can't wait.

    This has been a fun journey and I am more aware of all the ways I can reduce my Carbon Footprint! I will definitely try and keep up my targets.

    Couldn't quite do a full 5 miles on my bike, a little soar from day before.

    Set my automatic watering to every 3rd day in stead of every other day.

    I'm enjoying the fresh air while biking and can tell I've been sleeping better at night.

    How does using human-powered transportation make you feel compared to using other methods of transportation?

    I feel healthier than not biking, but sometimes not so safe riding in some bike lanes. I usually ride around my neighborhood and not on main roads.

    Not able to do much today, recovering from Covid 2nd vaccine shot. Pretty wiped out.
