Anonymous said: Any tips on staying healthy during college? I just finished my freshman orientation and I've already fallen off track when it comes to eating healthy and exercising regularly..

funeralformyfat:

School is weighing on you, course work is kicking your A$$, work is beyond stressful, workout…you dont even have enough time to sleep! let alone workout!…..

So how do you deal?  How do you stay on track and when all you want to do is cry?!

  1. Take a step back: You cant win the war if your running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off, or sitting back in the corner in the fetal position . Focus on what you CAN control.  You HAVE to go to classes, you HAVE to study, you HAVE to go to work…and you HAVE to eat.
Now which of those contribute to weight?? WHAT YOU PUT INTO YOUR BODY.
What are you reaching for when those stress moments arise?
Crazy stressed person number1, reaches for:
  • Chips, cookies
  • fast food
  •  ice-cream
  •  Lives on frozen meals because no time for ANYTHING

Crazy Stressed person number2 reaches for:
  • apples slices with peanut butter
  • yogurt with granola
  • cheese stick with fruit
  •  hummus and veggies
  • ham and cheese sandwich (or veggie if your vegan like me)
Now….do you think those students who are BOTH stressed…would have the same weight gain?? I dont think so.
When you feel like your life is falling apart, and you don’t have time for anything…focus on your food.
Food is powerful. It’s how our bodies LIVE. Make the right choices starting at the grocery store and you will have the tools to help control your crazy life. Will it get you straight A’s and get you a  promotion at work….probably not. BUT you will not feel your pants get tighter, you might even find yourself having to squeeze in time to buy a smaller size. I think I can handle that kind of stress 8)
Grocery Shop  with a healthy goal in mind.

@drsarasolomon: DO IT NOW! 💥 👊

Yes You! Time to heat things up with my 10-minute cardio core workout!

In the time it takes you to contemplate starting, you could have already put on your running shoes and started this workout!

Do it at home! Do it in a gym! Just DO IT NOW! 
Today’s workout it a 10-minute HiiT circuit, consisting of 5 exercises that will make your core BURN! Once you get through the 5 exercises (with no rest), repeat it all over again. Keep repeating it as many times as possible in 10 minutes. I did 3 rounds. How many did you do? Comment below!

1. Ab Wheel: 10 reps 
2. Heel Touches: 10 reps each heel 
3. Burpees with push-ups: 10 reps
4. Lying Straight Leg Raises with a Hip Thrust at the top: 10 reps
5. Jump Rope – 60 seconds

Remember, exercising is step one. Step two is adopting a diet that will shed fat without making you feel deprived 365 days a year. Wanna know what I do for diet? Then go to http://bit.ly/XlkcQ1
