So yesterday I did it!  I ate flawlessly on time and on nutrition with every meal.  I even rode my mom's stationary bike after work and before class.  I was very impressed with myself.  This morning I decided that I had to face the scale and see what damage I had done since my last weigh in on April 17. I was expecting the worse, thinking I was going to weigh in at 170lbs which would be a gain of 4.5.  To my surprise, I lost 2 lbs!  I am now 163.5lbs down a total of 36.5 lbs.  Needless to say I shocked myself.  Even though I was eating badly I continued to track.  I think that still gave me some accountability with the amount I was consuming.  Today is a new day and I am looking forward to keeping up the hard work.  My family is doing a fitness challenge where you set your own goals and try to achieve them together!

Here are my goals for the challenge:

Final goals, run a 5k in under 30 minutes, lose my final 15 lbs and find a comfortable maintenance plan. My weekly goal is to workout 5 days a week for an hour doing at least 30 min of HIIT.  I also want to complete my other two fitness competitions ending June 17th and June 22nd!

I wasn't going to write my goals down, but it seems like a very important step!  Feel free to share your goals!  

Since my job is only seasonal and tax season just ended, my last day of work is in 2 days!  I have decided to take a big load of classes this summer and not work.  I am so excited and nervous seeing how this is my first time since I was 15 that I haven't worked!  I hope to really focus on my fitness and health the whole time!

Here is a picture of my before pants!  They are falling off as I walk!  I feel like a gangster!
