3 Reasons Why You Need a Workout Buddy

As someone that's worked out at every gym and studio in Westchester, having a workout buddy is CRUCIAL for success.

Here's my top 3 reasons why you need a workout buddy!

1. Accountability 

There's nothing like another person working with you to hold you accountable. I love having a workout buddy for the fun, but on a serious note, it is incredibly helpful to have someone else going through the struggle with you!

It's also really great to have a workout buddy because if you have someone else who's planning on going to the gym or a workout class, it's that much harder to rationalize cancelling. Anything helps, right?

2. The fun, duh!

On the days you want to do anything but workout, having someone to go with you makes it that much easier to get off your butt and get to the gym! You can talk between sets, share fun stories and keep each other entertained when you get bored.

3. Motivation

It's so hard to motivate yourself to go to the gym or a workout class. Especially during these cold winter months. Who wouldn't want to just stay in bed?

Having a workout buddy means having constant motivation and a warm smile (under the mask) to look forward to when you just don't want to do it.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
