You always hear that your metabolism slows down after the age of 30.
Well, this fact sucks for me because well before I even turned 30 my metabolism was already as slow as a snail.
As someone who has always struggled with her weight I oddly was always able to drop weight quickly if I actually tried and watched what I ate - i.e. If you gave me a week with clean eating I could drop 5+ pounds in a snap.
Recently though this hasn't been the case, I've been trying to watch what I eat, cutting down on the alcohol, etc and I'm gaining instead of losing. It's depressing and frankly annoying as all eff.
Apparently I need to work out - I know, I know, this isn't rocket science - but I was in denial of the lbs I was packing on because my eating habits hadn't changed.... even though my metabolism obviously has.
Because of this, last week I started personal training sessions three times a week at Fitness Edge in Lakewood. MWF at the crack of dawn is definitely a pain in the ass both literally and figuratively but I'm feeling great so far... still waiting for the scale to move down, but I'm feeling great so far.
So here's to attempting to successfully diet and workout program over the age of 30, I don't even want to think about what it'll be like after 40.
