The bonus challenge: Planning

Being healthy and changing habits take time, effort, and planning. The bonus challenge is to look ahead to NEXT week (week 3 of the challenge) and plan. Plan meals and snacks, plan time (for exercise, cooking, family, grocery shopping), scheduling, events, and appointments. Make a grocery list to avoid all that extra food buying. For each day you spend 10 minutes planning for next week, earn 10 bonus challenge points, for a total of 70 bonus points for the week.

Planned for at least 10 minutes each day. Points earned: 70.

    Thanks guys. It was a rare active week for me. Unfortunately I have hurt myself, so now my doctor says NO for a couple weeks... :(

    Excellent! Most days I only manage 10-15 minutes, but it makes it easier to not SKIP days.
