Hey y'all. So I'm finally starting one of these journals. I have been reading Mark's blog for a couple of weeks and on Monday started the 21 day challenge. I hope I will lose a little excess fat and tone up some on this plan. My main motivation at starting as a college freshman is not to put on the freshmen fifteen.

As for me, I am a typical southern girl who loves being outside, having boiled p-nuts, and sweet tea. So I've got my work cut out for me. I'm about 5'8 at around 130lbs. I hope to embrace this new lifestyle although I'm sure college is going to prove a challenge in and of itself. So yea... Oh and does anyone know about how many calories I should be eating? Or if I should be counting calories at all? Thanks
