We’ve started our no car experiment. We turned in our last car a week ago when the lease ended and made no plans to purchase a replacement. We are going to test out the next 90 days without a car and see if that makes a huge lifestyle difference. Between Lyft, Marta, Walking, Cycling and ZipCar, we hope we won’t notice too much of a difference. This challenge is driven by a desire to live a more minimalist lifestyle and one that has a meaningfully positive impact on the environment.

The beginning of a week can have so much sway over how the rest will play out. I made a big mistake and flew up to NYC on a Monday morning around 6:45 am. I was drained and wiped the whole rest of the week. I know better and need to hit the ground on Mondays with more energy and a better mood. To that end, I have made Mondays a dedicated being a rest day from training and a triple coffee day in order to get shit done.
