    Used the Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurant finder to pick a destination for date night tonight. Easy, yummy, and felt good to support a green business!

    So we’re about half-way through the challenge. Any tips or tricks for staying motivated? What changes or challenges are you most proud of?!

      I think telling new people about an action you've chosen can help keep you motivated :) 
      For my challenges, I'm proud of myself for sticking to my <5 min showers every day but one!

    Wow, it was so easy to do the check in last night.  It took 30 seconds to click off my daily challenges, our team racked up some points, and I'm embarrassed to admit how gratifying it was to see those little badge icons turn over to celebrate my small achievements:) Go Team Dormont!

    Excited to get started with the challenge tomorrow.  My strategy for remembering my new habits: strategically placed post-it notes!  What's your plan to stay on track?
