Fitness tips to help keep you motivated as the year comes to an end.

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!

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.
