    Be content with what you have;
    rejoice in the way things are.

    How to make a Terrarium in 4 steps …

    The size of your container will affect the amount of materials you will need and use:

    1. The first layer is rocks, which you can purchase at pet, garden or craft stores. Add enough to the bottom for adequate drainage.

    2. The next layer is activated charcoal, which you can get at pet or garden stores (it is used in fish tanks). Add a thin layer over the rocks.

    3. Depending on the depth of your container, you will next add soil. Leave enough room for your plant’s roots. 

    4. Next is your plant(s). Make sure they are not touching the glass as it will make them brown. One of the trickiest things is finding the right sized and shaped plants. If it won’t hurt the plant, you can divide it and use only a section because it needs room to grow.

    5. If your container is going to be closed, you can add moss around the sides of the plant. Open containers with succulents or cacti should be carefully filled in with pebbles on top.  

    6. Top your creation with a whimsical inhabitants like Yoda or dinosaurs!

    If you’d like to see one made, watch this Martha Stewart video . It’s a good thing.

    Back on Track 7/24

    -hold a plank for as long as you can

    Decided I would make it a game and do best out of 3. Best time was 1 min 13 sec!! o.O

    -limit the amount of refined grains you consume, whole grain is fine!

    Hmm, had rice and a pb sandwich. The sandwich was on honey wheat, but not whole wheat. Fail.

    -compliment people! Not just about their looks! But make someone’s day!

    I like to think I made a few peoples day when they got to see me in my short running shorts.  

    With the exception of the poptarts I had (been eating too many of those lately), I followed my meal plan perfectly! Yay for small victories!!

Can apply to so many things.
  14. Back on Track 7/23

    -plan your meals for the day (either day 12 or 13)

    Did not do this today, so here’s the plan for tomorrow

    Breakfast- Green Giant veggies and pb sandwich

    Lunch- Greek Wrap (hummus and olives and tempeh) purchased at work (I need to go grocery shopping, I have almost no food here). 

    Dinner- Fried rice with tofu and veggies

    snack- apple, banana, V8

    -drink only water!!

    Nope, again gotta have me coffee!

    -listen to your body, take care of it

    My body said to be lazy which I did, but also did some light stretching and yoga. Plan to run tomorrow, um, well later today, and maybe row. 

  15. Back on Track 7/21 & 7/22 -catching up (days 9 & 10)

    Sorry I’ve not been around. Feeling so tired lately. Anyway, gotta catch up on the challenge!!

    Monday 7/21

    -post how this challenge has helped you, and what else you would like to get out of it

    This challenge is making my more self aware of my own destructive tendencies as well as the struggles that everyone is facing. I hope to continue to see the stories of others and learn more about them and myself in the process.

    -be active for at least 45 min

    nope-rest day

    -limit the amount of sugar you consume

    Ah, only had sugar in my coffee. 

    Tuesday 7/22

    -use stairs as much as possible, take the long ways. Etc

    Done. My place of work has many long meandering hallways and I had to go to the second floor today, so up the stairs I went and took the long way back. Or should I say longer way back. 

    -limit caffeine consumption

    Haha, gotta have my coffee!

    -allow yourself a treat

    Does napping count?
