Getting older is an interesting thing. There are so many things I’m grateful for like, more wisdom and confidence. But there are also things that lay heavy on my mind like, a slower metabolism or staying sexy and desirable with age. In many cultures, women have it worst. When I think of all the categories we need to excel in, it’s almost like we must be Superwomen instead of simply women. And let me be clear, being a woman is extraordinary enough, though at times we’re made to feel it’s not.
Okay, I’m going to be honest with you. When you are just beginning or getting back in your groove, workouts SUCK. But beyond working out, keeping track of what I consume sucks even more. I know the benefits and I always feel better, but refusing that delicious piece of cheesecake hurts almost every time.
Okay, I got off track. Before or after my “glorious” workouts, I drink protein smoothies. Why? Long story short, they fill you up fast and help build muscle. Sexy.
