A Great Way to Get in Shape for Summer!


For those of you who have an excuse for everything, you'll have no excuse not to do FitAddict!This workout program offers the motivation and support that all college students need.

It’s that time of the year again! Now that the weather is warming up, everyone is thinking about summer and looking good in those bathing suits at the beach! The problem that a lot of us run into is only thinking about working out, and never actually getting into a routine. Everyone, including myself, is full of excuses when it comes time to go for that run. I’ve tried video workouts like P90X, which are convenient to do in your home, but it was too easy to pause the DVD and take a seat on the couch when I had nobody to motivate me. Finding time to go to the gym can be inconvenient (or you’ll convince yourselves that it is).

            I’ve recently found this program, FitAddict, which puts together the motivation of others and the convenience of working out at home on your own time. The “Total Body Blaster Program” gives you access to pre-recorded total body workouts, yoga, and foam rolling videos so you can do what you need to on your own time. If you’re someone who needs a pre-made schedule to keep you on track and motivated, they have that too! There are also live “Booty & Abz” workouts for 20-30 minutes twice a week to hold you accountable and make sure you’re still working hard.

            This program is made for busy people who always have the perfect excuses, which is why I think this would fit perfectly into a college student’s life. If you’re feeling especially unmotivated or stressed out by work or exams, the program has a lot of outlets where you can go for support. Andrea Lauren, The CEO and president of FitAddict created an exclusive Facebook group which she says, “…will give you support, recipes, techniques that have worked for others, accountability, inspirational thoughts, and motivation.” You can also find encouragement in the question and answer sessions that take place after the “Booty & Abz” live-stream workout, which is also recorded for those who, understandably, can’t make it. Other places you can look to for help are the FitAddict Pinterest page, and Andrea herself.

           Andrea is full of encouraging words of wisdom, like focusing on the short-term instead of stressing about long-term results. In a recent email to participants, she says, “So much can be accomplished in 4 weeks, I mean you can literally make huge huge huge strides in just 4 weeks. So let’s focus on the next four weeks. I don’t care about 3 months from now, or 6 months or next year…We have 4 weeks to really push ourselves a little more than we did the day before.”

            The program even includes a suggested detailed diet regimen and a healthy shopping list. Although Andrea isn’t a registered dietician or nutritionist, her recommendations are developed through experience and self-implementation. FitAddict also provides tracking guides and a monthly calendar to help you keep on track and organized.

            When I reached out to Andrea, she was excited about the idea of involving more college students and told me about her college special. One month of FitAddict costs $49, and she is offering two months for the price of one. If you are interested in trying out FitAddict and all of its perks, more information about signing up can be found on the Facebook page: www.faebook.com/fitaddicttrainingnorehabnecessary.

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.
