    So far the challenge is going great. When its cold out cutting my showers to 5 minutes isn`t the easiest but as long as I set my timer I am usually good. I`m eating better and watched super size me, which makes me never want to eat fast food again. With the challenge I have actually done more around the house with fixing faucets and lights where as before I kept saying ill do it next weekend. This has been a productive challenge so far

    I have already started washing my clothes in cold water and instead of using the dryer I am hang drying my clothes. It has helped keep the house cooler in the summer heat by not running the dryer. My shower time is down to about 7 minutes which gives me more time to do things and I am saving water. I am just excited to see how much money will be saved on the water and electricity bill. :)
