I have hit the dreaded time in my life (that I was hoping would NEVER come) where my metabolism is slowing. I can no longer skip a meal or two, and wake up the next day with a couple pounds missing. Sigh. Turning 28 is apparently my cue to start hitting the gym on a regular basis, instead of the 'once every couple months when I feel motivated' routine that I have been in the last year. I am not gonna lie - I am slightly depressed with this new dose of reality! Second guessing what I eat, and fighting late night cravings is a bitch (pardon the french, the description is accurate), but I'll adjust. I'll have to find some sort of enjoyment in working out - any suggestions??? - and cut out all the crap I have been eating. No more Krispy Kremes, pecan-praline ice cream (it's rare that I eat ice cream, but when I find a flavor I love ... oy!!), and frozen Totinos pizzas (don't judge - my boys love them, too!).
So, here's to a healthier, fitter, leaner lifestyle ... ugh!
