How to work out when its cold outside and I don't have a gym membership?

People get lazy during the holiday season but this is your time to shine!

How to work out when its cold outside and I don't have a gym membership?

Here are some great alternative workouts!

1. Stairs

Yes, the Stairs!!!! This is a great way to get your heartrate up and get in some cardio. It's just like the stairmaster at the gym except you get to pace yourself.

2.Youtube videos

Youtube videos are one of the best inventions. There are so many different videos you can follow and pace yourself one. It's like a trainer but on a screen. You can use the internet as your advantage and workout at the same time.

3.Invest in some workout equipment

This can include some light weights or a jump rope. This way you have some options to work with and can do it at the pleasure of your house.

4.Remove the snow

If it is snowing this is a great way to use your arm muscles and build strength. One might think this is easy work but snow is heavy and hard to move around.


If you have a staking rank near you go ahead and use it! It's a great workout and you get to have fun so double win!


Bowling is a great workout as it uses your core arm muscles when swinging and running up to the line!


Dancing is hard and rigorous! You sweat alot and it's almost just like running! You are using your feet a lot and have a great workout routine.

Here are some great alternative workouts!

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.

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.
