Winter Workout (part 3): Spotted

What a busy week it has already been for me! My sorority had our annual “Buy-A-Date With a Phi Thet” last night! At the event, us sisters who sign up are auctioned for any buyer to win two hours with the sister(s) being bought, during which the sisters and them can do anything, such as hang out, Netflix, clean, anything as long as it’s legal. We ended up raising $550 for the Pinky Swear Foundation! Needless to say, I’m so proud of my sisters! I also have classes and work left this week, before returning home for the weekend to see my family.

Winter Workout (Part 1): The Blues

Hello, readers! For me, health is one of the most important things in my life. Being a college student, it can be hard to make it to the gym, especially with my busy schedule and the cold weather. But, with some great workout clothes, I must say, it makes it much easier to get some exercise in while flaunting them.

Smart Exercise

As a person who works out 3-5 times a week (depending on my work and class schedules), and someone who suffers from IBS, I know how important exercise can be, both for my physical and mental health. Exercise is a way to keep your body and spirit healthy, the best that it could be. Exercise is also a good stress reliever, so I try to have fun with it by going to fitness classes offered her on campus, such as Butt n Gut, Zumba, and Yoga. It’s a good way to add a healthy variety to your workouts (studies show it’s better that way), and to actually enjoy working out with a great group of girls.
