    Thank you, NWEI for putting together this challenge; i've participated several years now and each year I enjoy it more than the last.  And thank you to all of our team "For the Better" members.  I've enjoyed this challenge along with you.  Great work everyone!!

    Each year I learn a little more about my challenges through the resources provided by NWEI.  I hope that everyone will continue to use NWEI as a resource for better living.

      Thank you for posting it on your Facebook page, where I learned about it & signed up!
      This is a great tool not only for changing habits, but for provoking thought & team-building.  I want to work on devising my own challenges for next year, you can do that and list them under the Other category, I think.

    What a tremendous challenge this has been.  I"m sorry the timing wasn't a little better, but I do intend to stick with this for several more months.  I"ve been delighted with the work of our team and hope that each of you continue along your paths in the future.  Don't forget that once I get settled into our new digs I'll be setting up a course for simple living and will let each of you know the when and whats of it.

    I'm doing better with my challenges, but I'm particularly proud of the members of our team.  For the most part, they're working hard and getting their goals accomplished, plus even more.  I have a feeling that the majority of the team will be continuing this challenge long after the deadline.

    Back from Pittsburgh and anxious to get back on track with my challenges; had no computer there so couldn't check in.  Even though I didn't check in I was completing some of my challenges.  Missed my wonderful team!

    Another day filled with opportunities for completing my goals as well as learning new things!  Thanks to NWEI -

    as it looks right now i will not make any progress on not working more than 8 hours a day to find life/work balance; i'm working a lot more than that right now due to circumstances out of my control and i keep forgetting to track my purchases which is totally on me.  I need to try harder on that one.  Overall I'm enjoying my challenges.

    Not to sound overwhelmed or anything, i'm selling a house, buying a house, going to Pittsburgh for Climate Reality Training, closing on both houses on the 8th and 9th, respectively, but I still managed to achieve some of my challenges \; oh balance....where art thou???
