As I sat out by the pool today, taking in the gorgeous sunshine and just being a "pool bum", I had my notebook and pen with me and I started writing down what it was I wanted to accomplish in week 1 of this challenge.
- Clean Eating
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. I'm always planning. It doesn't mean I always follow it, but at least I know it's there. I'm always writing things down too. Keeping things in your head doesn't always seem to work, so I find writing them down, usually helps out a lot.

A great way to keep track of your progress is not only by writing it down, but also by photos. I will be keeping track of my progress by my weight, measurements and photos. I know it's not the right thing to do, but I do weigh myself every morning. I will however only post weekly. I will take my measurements every 4 weeks and will also be taking full length front and side profile photos and posting them.
Current weight: 250.6lbs
Be strong, be active, and be all that you can be. Be empowered by who you are and what you can do!
