    Only two more days!  This has really gone by quickly.  Seeing the collective impact of all our teams is quite impressive.  Onward and upward!

    It’s amazing how easy it is to forget to check in even though you are changing behaviors. Glad I received my notice email to check in. Thanks

    In the past when I have participated in the challenge, it was for two weeks.  I am glad that we are doing this for three weeks.  I have been told that it takes 21 days to make a habit, which I believe to be true.  Based on the new changes I integrated into my daily routines, it appears that 21 days should do it.  Hope you all are having great success as well.

    What can we do to get more motivated?  Our challenger has more than double our points, although it is with at least 25% more members, I know we can do better.  Thanks you guys for allowing me to be on your team.  This challenge continues to remind me of all the little things we can do to help our world.

      Also found out on check-ins - if you missed a day, no worries.  You can page back to the date and log in your awesomeness on challenge behaviors you met on that day and still get points (for yourself and the team :-))
      So, do it!  Thanks :-)

    Okay guys, let's get to work.  We were a respectable 59 out of the teams, then dropped to 60 and now we are at 67.  I presume that most of you are performing the behaviors you chose but forget to check in.  Does that sound familiar to me.  So let's step up the challenge.  Thanks to you all for participating.

      Some info on the check-ins.  If you log in daily to track your challenge behaviors you will get more points for doing it each day (something like 10 points extra for checking in on the actual day.)  So Shayne is right, checking in will really kick up our points.  I logged in on my tablet at home and had it remember my password, so I don't have to bother logging in each day.

    Well so far I just missed one day checking in. So much going on - my head is spinning.
    I do feel good about the changes I have made so far.  Hope the rest of the team is moving forward as well.

    This week-end was cram packed with too much to do. Must remember to check in so I can get the appropriate points.  I will do better as I am taking the actions I chose.

    When I was choosing my challenges, I found that many of them I already do - some daily , but also some routinely.  Finding new challenges this year was difficult, but I seem to be able to add more to my list each year.
