Good morning bloggy boos!! How are you?
I am in such a good mood because today I am pigging out with Lisa and then TOMORROW I will be at my (surprise!) college for accepted students day:) And meeting all of my new girls. So so excited.
I am starting you off with an “inspirational” Jillian Michaels quote. If you are as obsessed with BL as I am, holla @ me.
“I’m gonna burst a blood vessel in my eyeball…I’m going to burst a blood vessel in my eyeball because of YOU.”
– (the great) Jillian Michaels
Don’t make Jillian mad. Get yo burn on, people!
Oh and to clear it up, I am not at the beach :) Hahaha it was a picture my grandma sent me to make me jealous. Well it worked.
Recently a few readers have asked how I keep an active lifestyle while balancing my life as a student. So I figured, what’s a better topic when I’ll be going to college in the fall?! (any guesses as to where that is?! I may..or may not…tell you if you’re right)
Read on for my secret stash of how to stay sane (and hot) in times of overload.
Here we go!
How to Fit in Fitness:
- Don’t try to find time, make time. This works like a charm. When you’re looking for room in your day, you’re not gonna find it. Guaranteed. So, decide when you’re going to work out and commit to it. For example, I plan my workouts ahead of time and decide when and for how long I am going to do them. Working out right after school is perf most of the time, so I do that, come home, then eat dinner and do my work! Easy as pie, and endorphinified:) Other days of the week, I meet up with friends to go to spinning, kettlebells, BodyPump, or just to ride the machines for a bit!
- Plan ahead. Get your work done ahead of time, or know when you are going to complete it. That way, when you’re blissfully sweating away, you won’t be having a heart attack over the stack of paper waiting for you on your desk:)
^^ Danggg son that kid’s got his work cut out for him
- Eat well. Not only does this mean eat nutritiously, but prep your eats ahead of time so that when you’re a starvin marvin, you have some food on hand to tame your hungry beast. For example, smoothie ingredients (protein powder!) are great, and pre-made grains, beans, and pre-sliced veggies are perfect. Oh, and cookie dough bowls.
- Get some sleep! Self-explanatory. Get your sleep, and you’ll have more energy and time to get your workout in.
^^ Don’t be That Guy.
- Get creative. Run outside, do a BodyRock workout, a fitness or yoga/pilates DVD, whatever floats your boat:) Go to yoga if you’re feeling sassy!BodyRock eats insanity for breakfast.
So there you have it! Get creative with your workouts, no excuses:)
See you tomorrow from my new COLLEGE! And with my new best friend roomie :)
Edit: I am so so obsessed. Slash in love.
