7 Easy Tips To Lose Weight Healthily

As someone who's always trying to be healthier and lose weight, I know how hard it can be to stay on a strict diet. Basically, restricting myself never works, and it's way better to enjoy everything in moderation. Instead, here are seven easy tips to help you be healthier without eating only vegetables.

1. Reduce your intake of carbs and sugar


Obviously, carbs and sugar are two of the most amazing things in this world, so I understand how hard it is to cut them out of your diet completely. Which is why a more realistic way of going about this is just to slowly reduce how much you eat of these types of foods.

2. Try a calorie tracker app


There are a bunch of apps that track how many calories you eat in a day and keep you on track based on your body type and how much weight you want to lose. These can help stop you from overeating, just remember not to eat fewer calories than you should be!

3. Work out a few times a week


Most people don't have the time to work out every day, but working out two or three times a week can still make a difference. Also, if you don't belong to a gym, there are a lot of fitness YouTube videos that you can follow.

4. Figure out a workout plan that works for you


One of the most important parts of working out is figuring out what works for you. Sometimes certain workouts are great for other people, but just don't work for you. If something hurts, try to find an alternative for it, or, if you're using a machine with weights, start low and work your way up over time.

5. Drink lots of water


This one is pretty obvious. According to health authorities, the average person should drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day.

6. Try healthier desserts


Fruit, yogurt and granola, and low-calorie ice creams like Halo Top are all great alternatives for traditional desserts.

7. Remember it's okay to have a cheat meal


The most important thing to remember is not to fall off the wagon completely if you indulge in a cheat meal. It's okay to eat whatever you want in moderation!

It's important to remember that not everybody will react to the same diet or workout plan in the same way. It really depends on your body and what you feel works for you because everybody's body is different! Never continue with a diet or workout plan if it's harming you in any way, mental or physical.

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.

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.
