I’m no fitness guru with a jaw-dropping, sculpted body. I’ve taken courses in nutrition and have been learning about fitness methods since I was in college, but that’s the extent of my expertise.
What I am is a real-life, average working Jane currently seeing changes to my physical health, particularly in response to rich food, late nights and other unhealthy habits that accompany a lifestyle writer/editor. In the past year, I’ve been working out more and have seen my metabolic system plod along sluggishly, even while making vast strides in core strength and overall endurance. That’s a rather sad side effect of getting older, but one has to adapt to those changes.
