I have always been one of those people who have not had to work hard to maintain a skinny figure, and for YEARS I have been hearing from multitudes of people that once I hit my thirties that my metabolism would slow down and it wouldn’t be so easy anymore. I would like to chronicle my emergence into the dreaded thirties with a discussion about my weight, workout habits and my love of food. On a monthly basis I will post my current weight and how things are going with me in this area of my life.
As you can see right now I am at about 140. My weight has maintained between 130-145 since I was in my mid-twenties. But I did turn 30 in September so we shall see what happens.
As for my exercise habits, I am currently training for a xterra triathlon so I am working out more than normal, but as you can see from my training schedule (pictured below) I am not being super consistent with my routine. For those of you who don’t know a xterra triathlon is like a normal triathlon except it is mountain biking and trail running for those portions of the race.
And last but not least eating habits: I have never and I don’t ever plan on going on a ‘diet’ but I have been trying to eat healthier lately and frankly when I am working out more consistently like I am I crave the healthier options naturally. I also tend to choose the more fatty and calorie-ridden foods. For example my husband eats Yoplait light yogurts but I just like the regular ones better. Also, I drink the full-fledged sugary sodas, but it takes me a months to get through a 12-pack.

I am looking forward to this project. It would be great to know how you prepare for the triathlon.
I will definitely have a post discussing my triathlon training.
