college fitness

It’s 2017. You need motivation? No, what you need is discipline. 
IT’S TIME TO FOCUS.

Force yourself to do things. Force yourself to get up early, make your bed, go get ready, and go. Force yourself to make plans for the day, and follow through with all those plans.
Force yourself to get to class early so you can look over the material. Force yourself to pay attention in class and turn off your phone or at least put it on silent. Stop texting your friends and going on Instagram in class. You are wasting your time, so why even bother going to class if your are going to be distracted? Be selfish. Stop giving your time to people that do not matter. YOUR TIME IS SO SO PRECIOUS. STOP WASTING IT!

This is the most important thing that you can do right now, take care of you and your education. Stop being distracted by the world and it’s never ending problems. This is the time that you need to put toward yourself because you are the greatest investment of your life.

EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

EVERYDAY is a chance to wake up and give your 150%.
EXHAUST yourself. That is the only way to give your all. At the end of the day, you should be exhausted from working so much, from reading so much, from exercising so much.
Don’t go home because you are tired. Do whatever you need to get done and don’t come home until it’s all done. Stay late at the library. You feel tired? Good. That is how you know you are giving it your best. Go to the gym, and give your work out your all.
When you go home, you should feel like you are drained. You should feel like you have nothing left to give because you gave it your all. Because then, you can be proud of yourself and everything you have achieved.
Giving it your all is what matters. Give your all every single day. Discipline your mind and your body and you will become successful.

You fall back one day? That is O.K., try the next day. You are human, so accept your mistakes. However, love yourself enough to know that you will never give up working on yourself and your dreams.
THIS IS IT. THIS IS YOUR LIFE. Right now, no matter what circumstances we are all in, is what matters. Take advantage of today. Write down your dreams and force yourself to work toward them, one day at a time. 
IT’S TIME TO FOCUS.
THIS is your year. This is your life. One day at a time baby. One day at a time. Go ahead and don’t stop.

It’s so strange to look back at the summer before coming to college…my life has changed so much since. I can honestly say I did not partake in the freshman 15 and have loved living where I have constant support from friends, a gym membership, and healthy food readily available to me. It’s been a long road, but I’m sure glad I took it.

Stressed? Feel like you're too busy to workout/eat healthy?? IVE GOTCHU

Man, ^^^ is exactly how I feel rn but I want to let you guys know that I have found a few tips that have helped me stay healthy and working out during stressful times! Its currently dead week for me @ college and man IM STRESSED! Here is what I’m doing everyday for the next 2 weeks to stay healthy and working out during this stressful time!
1. I drink 1 glass of lemon water, a cup of green tea and a good breakfast to start my day!
2. I make a checklist of everything I want to get done that day. It’s both satisfying for me and I can plan out my day!
3. During your study/homework breaks do floor workouts (abs/legs/arms) or go for 1 mile run :) this is only about 10 minutes, and if you do it 4/5 times throughout your day you have 40-50 minute workout and your body will be more focused from working out!
4. DRINK WATER AND GET SLEEP!! v important :)
5. Make lunch/dinner in the mornings or the night before so you don’t feel stressed during the day what to eat/time

Hope these help❤❤
