Day 6: Say Goodbye to Survival Mode Challenge

Who did you choose?

I’m blogging my way through Crystal Paine’s Say Goodbye to Survival Mode 7-Day Challenge.  Join me, and you’ll get a daily email from her with information about how to start getting your life back, including a new challenge each day to help you along!  Sign up here!

Today’s challenge was about getting support to keep the momentum going – find an accountability partner to help stay on track and get honest feedback on progress.

It’s when things get hard that most people quit.  Staying disciplined and motivated is easy as long as we see progress, but when the excitement of a new endeavor fades or forward movement stalls it can be hard to stay on task.  Having an accountability partner to walk with you through the process – someone who cares about you enough to be your cheerleader while also giving you honest, productive, loving insight – can be a great way to push you through those stagnant, challenging periods.

I chose my husband to be my accountability partner because, well, he lives here and he’s got a pretty good idea how things are going.

Who did you choose to help you stay on track?

      @shari lynne @ faith filled food for moms Thanks; I'm so glad you were doing this challenge along with me! I agree with you about Crystal Paine - I didn't know very much about her {actually kind of intimidated of the idea of her} before we started this process, but she is such a "real" woman!
