Spring Break Slim Down (Week 1)

The weeks post-Christmas/pre-spring break are the absolute WORST.  I wish I was better about eating healthier and going to the gym during the winter season, but the frigid temperatures keep me hungry and indoors.  With that said, I desperately need to shed some weight and tone up, because I'm heading to Florida in 18 days to visit my friends (Kelsy, Meedo, Taylor and Jon).

My best friend, Kelsy, and I have decided to shed some weight together before we meet up, and we're going keep each other in check via text messages.  Our goal is to cut out the majority of processed foods and reduce our sugar intake.  My personal goal is to eat as clean as possible and see how much of a difference it makes.  I suppose my relatively healthy eating habits have kept me from ever needing to diet, but I'm interested to see how my body transforms.

I'm also going to hit the gym hard.  Of course I say this now, but I'm hoping I'll stick to it.  I'm not unhappy with how I look, but I do think I look skinny-soft as opposed to skinny-toned right now.  I'm hoping my efforts in the next few weeks will help tighten me up and get me bikini-body ready.

Please share your slim down secrets and recipes with me below!  And without further ado, listed below are my goals, meals, and workouts for week 1 of 3.  I will update as the week goes on.
