WEEK ONE: Step+Sleep-where do we get help?

GOAL OF THE WEEK:

To try sleep at least 49 hours in 7 days. In this first week of the challenge, we are asking you to track how many hours of sleep you have in one night & then the week. While keeping track of sleep- your point system this week is to count one hour of sleep as one point. For example -  49 hours = 49 sleep points.  So at the end of this week - before Monday- please send your sleep & step totals to Denise.


WHERE DO WE GET HELP?
