We can all be physically healthy but that doesn't always mean our thoughts are.

10 Unfit Thoughts You Have While Training For That Summer Bod

We all want to look good, but that doesn't mean it's easy. Looking like your favorite Instagram model in the Summer is something every girl wants, we want the tan, the body, the hair, the everything. But just because I may go to the gym every day in the months leading to warm weather or count my calories, does not mean I will automatically transform into looking like someone I'm not.

We would all be living our best life if we could eat whatever we want or sit on the couch all day and not gain a pound or feel lazy.

Here are 10 unfit thoughts I have when I'm supposed to be training for that summer bod.

1. If I get a spray tan I will go from a 5 to a 10.

While a tan always helps you look more alive, it does not make you look skinnier or more fit.

2. Waking up everyday thinking, "Maybe today will be a cheat day".

If everyday is your "cheat day," it's technically not considered a cheat day anymore.

3. I wish I looked like her.

Never, never, never compare yourself to others, we all were born with different genetics for a reason.

4. If I just lay in bed all day and not eat maybe I'll still lose weight.

Nope, not gonna happen girlfriend. To get results you have to work for them.

5. If I go to the gym 3 times a day it will speed up the process.

Tired this, doesn't work. All this does it make you tired and weak.

6. If I cut out every bad thing out of my diet forever I'll look the way I want to.

You might be able to do this for a little while, but it never lasts long and before you know it you'll be shoving junk food down your throat.

7. Juice cleanse, juice cleanse, juice cleanse.

It's called a cleanse for a reason. It's more unhealthy to do this everyday than to just limit your food portions.

8. Maybe he will finally notice me.

Never do this for a guy, always do it for yourself.

9. Why don't I have abs yet?

Sorry sweetheart, but it takes years of hard work to achieve this goal.

10. If I go to the gym, I can eat that bag of chips.

Don't do it to yourself. Don't ruin everything you just went to the gym for.

All in all, if you want to look good you have to do it the right way. Everything takes time and everyone has those bad thoughts, you're not alone. A healthy diet, an active lifestyle and lots of water are all you need.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
