7 Quick And Simple Fitness Tips

Heres some quick fitness tips to help keep you motivated and healthy going into the new year!

1. 80/20 Rule

80 percent nutrition and 20 percent physical activity.

2. Optimize Your Morning

Wake up and get it done. The morning is the best time to get up and get moving because our body is alert and you wont have to worry about fitting in your workout later.

3. Challenge yourself

Don't be afraid to switch up your routine and try something new. Change is actually very good when it comes to physical activity to keep your body from hitting a plateau.

4. Hydrate

Don't slack on the recommended six to eight ounce glasses of water you need daily. Carry around a water bottle so that it's always in hand. Water keeps you feeling full, maintains clear skin, and regulates your body.

5. Be Attentive

Don't over train and cause yourself to be too sore, eat intuitively and wisely. Listen to your body.

6. Don't Quit

Persistence is key to living out a healthy life and obtaining the body you want. Don't let a cheat meal or a missed workout knock you out of routine.

7. Monitor Your Progress

Take progress pictures, log your weight, keep an idea of your daily calorie intake, write down when you broken your max lift, and set small goals. You'll be able to see your week-to-week progression.

I find that implementing these tips help keep me focused on my goals. Its very easy to "fall off the wagon" and let life distract you from what's important. Finish this year off strong and keep working toward you're goals!

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!


Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).
