7 Signs You Might Be A Fitness Junkie

Whether it be coffee, sports, writing or music, everyone has their thing. But when you make a life change, maybe that thing changes? If you're trying to achieve a certain goal in physical health, you might slowly transition into somewhat of a fitness junkie. Here are seven signs that this may be your new "thing."

1. Every new workout is exciting.

Whether you're going to a barre class, yoga class or a group fitness workout, all of it is exciting. Every new studio brings a new sense of excitement, and you thrive on the happiness gained from entering before the workout and the adrenaline high afterwards.

2. All you can think about is new fitness gear.

Leggings and Nikes and sports bras, oh my! All you want is to feel fabulous while you workout, so your Pinterest boards and Safari tabs include various links to athletic wear sites and sale sites for fitness wear.

3. Pre and post-workout are your friend.

You love to try new types of drink mixes. Whether it's C4, whey protein or any other mix you can think of, you're ready to try it.

4. You hate missing a workout day.

Whether it's for the sake of being too busy, personal reasons or rest, you hate not hitting the gym. If you miss a workout, it's like missing out on one of the best parts of the day, and that makes you extremely sad.

5. Clean eating is the best eating.

Whether it's a new smoothie recipe, a juicery or a new alternative to your favorite sweet treat, you're always ready for some clean eats.

6. Morning workouts are actually pretty great.

I know, this sounds crazy, but getting up before the world does and working out with some of your friends at the gym is actually one of the best ways to start the day.

7. Cheat days are good...until you're ready to hit the gym again.

Even when you cheat and eat that slice of pizza, you're already thinking about your next workout, and that excites you. The idea of eating this delicious piece of cheesy goodness and then hitting the gym tomorrow is completely awesome.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester.
