The long-awaited day 10 has arrived! Less than 24 hours left until you conquer the Freeze. Congratulations to all of you – truly awesome learnings, communication and effort. We’ll be posting the list of eligible participants for the drawing on Monday, and will inform the winner by Monday night.
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the Super Bowl (or not)! You deserve it.
Day 10 prompt: Would you do the Freeze again? What did you like/dislike about the process? What could make the Freeze better in the future?
There is a light at the end of the tunnel and you can see it. The weekend is near. You’re probably practicing your victory dance.
However, day 10 falls on a Friday. (Day 9 prompt) How will you spend your last Friday freezing? Will it be the hardest day of all, or the easiest?
We all have those items that aren’t technically “necessary,” but are items we feel are essential to our daily lives, how we see ourselves, or our own mental sanity. For example, manicures, eye brow waxes, contacts, hair color treatments, etc. They aren’t necessary, but they feel necessary.
Day 8 prompt: What are your unnecessary but “essential” items? Which ones do you think you could cut, or cut back on?
Today marks the one-week point in our 10-day freeze. We love the support and collaboration happening among you all. Just a few more days! It sounds like there are many worthy projects, items and events the prize money could contribute to.
Day 7 prompt: If you win the $250 prize, what will you do with it?
(Aside from this of course)
Happy Monday Freezers! We hope you’re plenty refreshed after the wonderful weather we had in the Midwest this weekend. Sounds like there have been a few trials within the last five days – ravenous teens, broken dishwashers, QT temptations and more. Keep up the good work!
Day 6 prompt: What habits are you hoping to continue after the Freeze ends?
