I am a 34-year old female attorney living in NYC. I work long hours, am married, and have a stepson, but still make time in my hectic schedule to work out. Sometimes it happens at 10pm!
I do not work out to lose weight, even though I understand that some of my readers may be doing so. I have always been more concerned with how I feel. When I work out, I know I am getting stronger -- my posture is better, I am more flexible, I can lift more weight, I don't get tired.
I do not count calories or diet. I have a massive sweet tooth and love carbs. I also never met a milkshake I didn't like. I just try to balance it out with plenty of lean meats, fish, fruits and vegetables. I rarely drink soda, and if I am not drinking water I am probably drinking hot decaf green tea.
I am gluten-free, and not by choice. It seems to be genetic in my family, and we have adapted very well over the years.
I am also egg-white free, again not by choice. Finding out about that allergy was difficult, but once I cut egg whites out, multiple health problems went away literally overnight.
