I agree with forestdragon. It's definitely a whiptail but narrowing it down to species might be tricky. Hopefully locality will help with that.

It could be a whiptail lizard. It looks like the skinks in your area are much more boldly colored. I am having difficulty finding one that looks exactly like yours but the patterning on the back is similar to some of them.

Maybe this will help:
