This blog chronicles my life as I try to balance healthy lifestyle habits with my husband's penchant for pizza rolls and my daughter's desire to watch iCarly 8 hours a day. It contains a mostly humorous, kind, and somewhat spiritual look at everyday life and the people who live it.

Reader Request: What is a Carbon Footprint?
On the other hand perhaps you have a small footprint. Perhaps you are reducing, reusing, and recyling everything you can. Perhaps you are walking more and driving less, when possible. Even walking on a track or outside is preferable to using an electric treadmill. Right now it is still cold and rainy where I live. This morning I spent 37 minutes on an electric elliptical machine so I'm certainly not living off the grid. I did, however, rescue 4 earthworms that would have been stranded on my driveway...
Unplug, turn off, reuse, recycle. Any little change and every little change makes a difference. I wear a size 8 shoe, but I try to have a tiny footprint.
