Yesterday was the Big Switch Off across the UK - a campaign to encourage everyone to switch off all electrical appliances for one hour between 2100-2200 hours to save electricity and raise awareness of what we can all do to minimise our consumption of this energy which contributes to global warming.
I was travelling home from college at this time, so it was difficult to participate properly. But then I guess I did participate because I didn't turn anything on. And when I got home partner had all the lights off anyway. But he had the TV on and the PC, and I think it was more a case of laziness than green activism that resulted in all the lights being switched off haha! SO I switched off the TV because he wasn't really watching it anyway. And it had Big Brother on, which is a big waste of electricity (but I admit it's quite fun and enjoyable when I feel like being in a mindless, voyeuristic, nosy mood).
I have been a bit lazy myself recently. Or more like, I have just felt incredibly busy and a bit stressed with work and life, so doing green things and being really healthy has sort of slipped down my agenda. I have been feeling a bit stressed, so it's high time I got back into my running which is a good way to keep me balanced and in check, both physically and emotionally.
So plan is a run on Sun. I wonder how far I will go before I puff out. It doesn't take long for one's fitness to fall below par if one doesn't keep on top of it!
