    Yesterday, I led a CCL team in a meeting with a staff member of our Congressman.

    Doing my best to keep up with my daily challenges. However, I often forget to sign in and post.  Thanks for the reminders.

    Like so many others, I feel like there are simply not enough hours in the day to do everything I want and need to do.  This eco-challenge is so integrated into my normal activities, that it takes very little time to simply record my progress and makes me feel good about the changes I'm making in my life.

    How does eating more fruits and vegetables and less meat positively affect yourself, other people, and our planet?

    I have become increasingly aware of the cruel and environmentally destructive practices of our animal agribusiness industry and feel a great sense of personal relief as I transition away from meat, fish and poultry to a more vegetarian based diet.

    My focus has been primarily on my work with Citizens Climate Lobby recently, so I haven't been consistent in reporting to ecochallenge.  I appreciate the reminders.

    Have to admit I am not fully engaged in this campaign.  So many other projects taking up my time.  We do what we can.

    I am trying to improve my daily performance in the drawdown ecochallenge.  Hopefully it will get easier to make it simply part of my routine.

    I haven't been doing a very good job with this challenge.  I promise to do better in the future.

    I'm late in getting fully engaged in this effort, but plan to make it a daily activity from now on.
