Honolulu Choo Choo!

This is my plan for getting in shape, quitting smoking, getting money and going to Hawaii next summer.  I figured it up.  It’s 4,384 miles from Louisville, Ky to Honolulu, Hi.  I’m climbing on board the Honolulu Choo Choo and heading that way.  I set up my plan to where a really good day when I do everything I’m supposed to will give me 25 points (miles).  There are 40 weeks between now and the end of the school year in May.  If I earn 110 miles per week, I’m there!

I’m placing this plan in a category called Honolulu Choo Choo.  I’ll also keep track of my savings in that category.  If I quit smoking today and set aside $5 each day (which is less than I spend on cigarettes), I’ll have saved $1,400.  I’ll even give myself points for being a bitch and not allowing anyone to smoke in the house.  The reason I started smoking again is because DH and DS were constantly smoking around me.  I don’t plan on getting sidetracked with that temptation again.  My goal is to set aside $3,000 for the trip so I’ll be supplementing it with extra pay earned outside my regular paycheck.  That shouldn’t be too difficult since I almost always get an extra check in each pay period.  I’m also going to add an extra $20.00 each week that I earn at least 175 miles.  I’ll have to be really pushing hard to do that.  That would mean earning 25 points each day for a week and it’s set up to where 25 points represents a perfect day. 

Got my plan…now I’ve got to put it in action.  Here’s my final version:
