    So I started with a few of the easier challenges, but they were still eye opening. So I normally take shorter shower's (under 10 min) so the I figured the five min shower challenge would be a piece of cake. So I timed my shower this afternoon, I more or less did my normal shower routine just a litter quicker. Turns out I timed in at just short of 6 min, which means that when Im not thinking about it that I am probably always am in the 10 min area all the time. A cool thing I think would be nice for everyone to try weather or not they are doing this challenge is to block the drain of the tub or shower before you start and see how much water you use to take your normal shower. You will be surprised.

    Just wanted to say I have set some pretty reasonable goals for my first few day's but I plan to really puch myself. I have to say it helps knowing I have the support of a team. And Like wise I am happy to lend a hand or an ear where ever I can. Let's make this a really powerful experience!
