Realistically, as an American, I waste food, time, space, energy and money. Why? Because of busyness, laziness, tiredness, and a host of other things. I’m sure that many other cultures deal with these issues as well, but I can speak to the American culture of wastefulness as a sad state of things.

Since not everyone is going to go hike Machu Picchu with me, making my specific training program unnecessary, I thought I’d share my process of planning.
