5 lbs, 5 weeks: Round #2

It's that time of year again. Swimsuits are on the racks and I know shorts weather is rapidly approaching. Last year I was 36 weeks pregnant today and decidedly NOT looking forward to spring weather and bathing suit season. This year it's on.

I'm starting a self-imposed challenge to lose the last 5 pounds in the next 5 weeks.  Yesterday at the gym I impulsively jumped on the scale - something I'm usually far too wise to do. The numbers weren't exactly surprising, but they confirmed I need to pay some attention to this department if I'm planning to rock some bandage minis or short shorts this season.

Current weight: 148
Goal weight: 143 

If those numbers sound strangely familiar, it's because it's almost exactly where I was the last time I did this challenge. Funny huh.

I'm using My Fitness Pal to track my calories and work outs just like last time as well. It's a really awesome (free) program. I'll also be taking pics of my super healthy (or not so healthy) food choices each day and sharing them via instagram. I would love you to follow along there if you don't already.

My sister has agreed to hold me accountable (so we can all blame her if this is a total fail) and of course y'all are all welcome to ask how it's going and bring me yummy healthy things to eat. Here's to short shorts and toned tummies!
