35 Thoughts College Girls Have Getting That Spring Break Body

35 Thoughts Every College Girl Has Getting Her Spring Break Bod Ready For The Beach

Rise and grind, baby!


Ever since my friends and I booked our spring break trip to South Carolina, we have joked about getting our spring break bodies. The most surprising part of it was that we're actually working toward getting in shape for the trip. We have a set gym schedule and we try to go as often as we can in order to be absolutely ready for the beach.

Working out can be a pain, but when you exercise with the right people, it doesn't seem as painful!

1. "Should I really go to the gym?"

2. "I really should."

3. "After spring break, I can just stop going."

4. "I really want pizza."

5. "But I should have a salad."

6. "This will all be worth it when I put my bathing suit on in a few weeks."

7. "I really hate working out."

8. "Running is the worst."

9. "I have never been sweatier than I am right now."

10. "How can other girls wear makeup to work out?"

11. "I immediately sweat mine off."

12. "I know exercising is supposed to wake you up, but I'm ready for a nap."

13. "Ugh, how much longer???"

14. "It's only been two minutes?!?"

15. "If I have to do a burpee, I will cry."

16. "My arms feel like they're about to fall off."

17. "I don't think I could do another squat even if I wanted to."

18. "I'm going to need a shower the second I get home."

19. "I forgot how out of shape I am."

20. "Just a few more reps then I'll be done."

21. "Even though I feel healthier, it doesn't make this any easier."

22. "I'm going to sleep well tonight."

23. "Tomorrow I'm not gonna want to move at all."

24. "Good thing I'm driving to campus in the morning."

25. "I'm going to need a bomb pump-up playlist if I want to get through this."

26. "Why am I doing this to myself?"

27. "I really should have waited to eat until after I finish working out."

28. "I wonder if anyone saw me use that machine wrong."

29. "I really need to stop making awkward eye contact through the mirror."

30. "Please stop grunting, I feel uncomfortable."

31. "Maybe if I go into this corner no one will see me."

32. "Every machine I want to use is taken and now I don't know what to do."

33. "How am I already out of water? I just got here."

34. "I only had an hour, and yet, I just spent 30 minutes talking with someone."

35. "I really should have planned this better, now I'm not going to have time to shower before class."

Challenge Yourself With A Summer Bucket List

Create a summer bucket list to keep yourself motivated this summer!


Summer is a great time to relax from the busy school schedule. The warm weather, sun, and wealth of activities provide great opportunities for exploration. However, in the expanse of the many great activities, we forget about our summer goals.

This summer make a bucket list to keep yourself motivated and off the couch. The list does not have to include grand adventures like venturing out of the country, but small things like walking your dog every day, going to the beach once a week, or even reading a set number of books each month of summer.

Bucket lists can act as a more fun to-do list to engage you in completing summer goals. This way instead of bingeing Netflix all summer or forgetting important things you wanted to get done, you have a go-to on what you want to complete.

Just because the school year stops does not mean you should forget about pursuing your goals. There are many adventures that await and can be completed outside of school. Even in your hometown (no matter how small) there are things to be done. Consider making a vegetable garden, growing sunflowers in your backyard, redesigning your room, reading a book a week, going to the gym every other day, learning to cook handmade pasta, or even learning how to paint.

There are also a lot of outdoor adventures that can be accomplished like training to run a 3k, riding a bike around your neighborhood, and swimming outside (in a lake, pool, or the ocean).

Summer is filled with so many adventures and goals waiting to be accomplished that can easily be forgotten in the face of relaxation. Don't forget all the great things that can be accomplished with the extra time provided by long summer days. Make a bucket list and include small and big goals on your list!

If You Take Fitness Advice From Instagram, You're Probably Doing It Wrong

Living a healthy lifestyle really isn't that complicated.


I lost 90 pounds during my freshman year of high school. Over the years, I've gotten many questions about how I accomplished such a feat and what my secret is. The truth is, I did what any doctor would tell you to do when you ask for weight loss advice. I ate healthy foods, I counted my caloric intake and I worked out regularly doing exercise that I enjoyed.

This seems so simple, but in today's complex society of Instagram fitness gurus and "experts" telling you that the secret to weight loss is wrapping your stomach in a wrap, it's difficult to know who is genuinely trying to give you good advice and who just wants to sell you something. I've fallen prey to these people too, so I know how difficult it is to decipher between sound advice and a sales pitch.

So as you embark on your health and fitness journey, remember that the end goal of any workout regimen or diet plan is to be healthy and increase the longevity of your life. It's about seeing your grandchildren graduate high school and go on to succeed in life while swinging on a porch with your husband or wife of 50 years, all because you took care of yourself instead of eating fast food and drinking every weekend of your 20s. It isn't to have slimmer thighs or a bigger butt, though those are nice benefits. What these people won't tell you is that if you simply eat healthy, exercise regularly and take overall better care of your body, you will see results without having to buy some stupid weight loss tea or crazy diet plan.

Believe me, the journey to being a better and healthier you is worth the consistent effort and work it will take to get there.
