8 Week Challenge

With these photoshoots coming up in May, I've decided to make this 8 week challenge one that I'll keep y'all in the loop with on a weekly basis.
It's been a long time since I had to "report back to y'all" on my success/failures, but I find it holds me accountable.
Last time I did that was when I was actively trying to lose weight.
I'm not so much trying to lose weight anymore as I am trying to drop my body fat and lean out.

Get this...
I measured my body fat the other day and I'm between 25-26%.
I was NOT expecting that. I was really thinking I was around 22-23%. But it is what it is and it can only get better from here.

I am eating 1900 calories a day right now. That will drop over the course of the next few weeks, however, and I'll keep you updated as to what/how much I'm eating.
Right now getting in 1900 calories of clean food has proven to be difficult.
But hey, it's not a bad problem to have.... Sure beats the hell out of "I'm STARVING and I can't have anything else to eat today!"

I will update y'all weekly on my progress and show you how my body is changing.

First update will be on Monday.
Until then.... MUST.RESIST.ALL.THE.REESES.EGGS!!!!

You know resisting those damn eggs wouldn't be so hard if they just kept them off the shelf until April 1st... am I right?

Can't wait to read about your progress - please share meals you're taking in to keep you 1900 a day tally going. That's the hardest thing - it's tough to eat that much clean food but you're SO right... it's better than starving because you blew your calories all at lunch!

I love the leggings! Every picture shows that you're looking leaner than the last. Great job!

How do you measure your body fat percentage? I haven't done it since high school gym class with one of the things that looks like a video game controller, what would you recommend?
