Working Out In Winter As Told By Memes And GIFs

I think we can all agree that working out is a struggle to begin with. Add in freezing temperatures and/or snow, and getting yourself outside for that distance run or to the gym for that Zumba class is nearly impossible. If a picture is worth a thousand words, GIFs are probably worth 10,000, so here is the winter workout struggle as told by GIFs and memes from around the web.

You wake up in the morning with a vague sense of dread, pondering whether it's worth it to try to work out today.

But then you psych yourself up for the day because your FitBit is always watching. #bigbrother

"I could run outside today -- it's not really that cold," you think to yourself. It might actually even be fun. Besides, you'll probably look really intense, and people will definitely be jealous of your fitness level.

Your friends see you walking downstairs to head out for your run and ask incredulously what you are planning to do, but you really don't have any solid reasons for why you're running outdoors when it's 30 degrees.

You get outside in your new cold weather workout gear, ready to go, but then realize a little too late that the snow struggle is real.

You try to stick with it anyways because deep down, you know bikini season is going to happen.

But then you start feeling this weird combination of hot and out of breath from running, but also freezing because it's flippin' cold outside, and so you just don't know what to do with yourself.

So you decide that things will be better if you go to the gym.

But you quickly realize you aren't on par with the type of people who go to the gym when temperatures are below freezing. (Read: the really, really fit people.)

You head over to the free weight section (because that's where the least people are), but that quickly turns into a disaster.

Then you decide to take a breather and chill in the bathroom, but even that is fraught with danger.

So you just give up and walk back home.

But your FitBit suddenly buzzes at you on the way -- you've met your step goal!

Now you finally get to reward yourself with some quality time with your one true love. #solodate #teambenandlaurenb

So keep that motivation level high, and keep at those winter workouts. Just make sure you're not on live TV when you do.

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.
