6 Tips For Staying Healthy On Trips

I know this may seem hard, but you'll thank me later.


If you have ever tried dieting while traveling, then you know it can be difficult, especially when there is so much good food out there. We have to stay strong. We cannot indulge in the sweets and carbs. We cannot take time off from the gym. We know that this summer bod took a lot of hard work and when I say a lot, I mean A LOT. From the hours in the gym to the healthy eating, the avoidance of carbs and sweets, we want a break. WE DESERVE A BREAK! But, we shouldn't take a break from that hard work.

Here are a few tips and tricks for staying healthy whilst in another state or country.

1. Moderation

Moderation is key. You've probably heard this a lot, but it is very true. You can indulge in dessert, but try your best to eat healthy during the day. Healthy food can be tasty and satisfying, and if you do eat unhealthy try to eat in smaller portions. Don't overeat!

2. Eat right

We tend to crave the unhealthy food while on vacation. We think, "Oh, these are negative calories" or "I'll work it off when I get home," however that's never the case. Try eating foods that are easier on the stomach, because we don't want to be bloated when taking those bikini pics. Protein (chicken or turkey) is easy on the stomach and won't make you feel bloated. It's also very filling.

3. Work, work, work

Try to workout! Swim, dance, walk around. Do fun activities and keep your body moving!

4. Walk it like I talk it

Walking is one of the easiest cardios there is. Go sightseeing or go for a walk on the beach.

5. Water, water, water

Water is key. Water is everything. Water is life.

Bloated? Water. Hungry and you just ate? Water. Wanna glow? Water. Want clear skin? Water. Dehydrated? Water. Water keeps us going and helps us look bomb. Drink up, boo.

6. No stress zone

Lastly, don't stress over gaining weight or that one bad meal you had. It takes more than one meal to gain a pound. Have fun! Soak up the sun!

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
