Put down the take out.
For those celebrating Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness this week (ie: beer, capitalism and pro football), let's remember some of our other unalienable rights: the right to workout, sweat, and get in shape!
Well, it seems that's not the case. Kristin Cavallari said that she only works out FOUR times a week for about 20-ish minutes. GASP!
Wow, time flies! Can’t believe my challenge is over – or at least my blogging commitment! I have to say that while I am a bit sad, I am also relieved. It isn’t always easy to be mindful of what you are eating, especially when so many factors are conspiring against you.
Just like everyone else, this year I pledged to finally start working out and eating better. Part of it is vanity -- who doesn't want to look good in a bikini at the beach this summer? -- but the other part is knowing that, as I get older, I have to start taking care of myself if I want to live a long, healthy life. The problem is, I've always had a hard time getting (and staying) motivated -- but not anymore!
This past week, I attended the IHRSA fitness convention here in San Francisco. Besides ogling all of the ridiculously ripped trainers, I got a sneak peek at our industry's latest innovations. Boy, is there a lot of new equipment out there! So long to those boring dumbbells and hello to these quirky new toys.

We're a month into 2011 already, and I don't know about the rest of you, but I've already been slacking on my New Year's Resolutions. I really did try to work on things for the first few weeks of January, but as I fell back into my normal routine and Winter Break faded further into the past, so did my ambitions.

It’s that time of year where we realize perhaps we’ve eaten a bit too much late night cheesy bread and we want to start losing some of the extra poundage so we look good in our skinny jeans by Thanksgiving weekend, lest our 8th grade crush see the dreaded muffin top eating all those pumpkin chocolate chip muffins has created.
October is finally almost over, and while I am frantically scrambling to come up with another costume for tonight, I am also thrilled that I am only one day away from being done with my meatless month. I can't believe it's been a month since my last beefy indulgence.
This time of year can be uber stressful with midterms coming up, job pressures, relationship issues, you name it. The realization that school is in full swing has finally hit. Many of us are as busy as ever, including moi. And you know what that means: stress eating.
It’s the start of the new school year. For some of you this will be your first time away from home and you may be feeling a little nervous about meeting your new roommate and dorm life in general. For others it’s like coming home again, only this time you are moving into your own apartment.
Melanie Jatsek is a speaker, author and registered dietitian who teaches college students how to eat to look better, feel better, think better and stress less! She is getting ready to publish her book, written especially for college students, called "Brain Food for College Students," so we thought we'd bring her on board to share some of her best advice with our CollegeCandies.

Finding it hard to make your health a daily priority? Can’t stick to that diet? Are you letting a day off turn into a few days? Or a few weeks? Join the club - I know I’m not jumping for joy at the thought of going to the gym either.
he weather is finally starting to warm up, and summer will be here before we know it. While I love summer and I'm excited to have the time off to relax and have fun, just thinking about the fact that sundresses, short-shorts, and bikinis are in my not-too-distant future makes me cringe. The fact of the matter is, my body isn't quite ready for skimpy summer clothes just yet.
Hate how all the guys you know only lift weights a few times a week, skip the treadmill, eat twice as much as you, and still manage a 6-pack while you struggle to reveal any pack at all? Maybe it’s time to take a few tips from the boys!
The first thing you learn in college, before you even step foot in a dorm that smells of Hamburger Helper and Febreeze, it is that your 'Freshman Fifteen' is long awaiting your hips. While biting your fingernails, you try and find a way to prevent it. Is it the large portions of Ramen you've been consuming? The lack of sleep?
If you want to lose a few pounds (or a lot of pounds) there are very healthy ways of doing so. Ways that don't require you to binge on exercising or skip meals. We asked our friend Erin, a health and diet connoisseur for the college female at Student Body, for her advice on dieting the healthy way.
Admit it: most of you made a New Year's Resolution that had something to do with your body. Maybe it was to lose weight, or get in shape, or build muscle, etc, etc. And maybe you have been doing great so far. Go you!
New year, new you. That's the whole idea behind new year's resolutions, right? Except most resolutions get tossed out the window by February, leaving the resolutioner in the same exact place they were one year before. But it doesn't have to be that way. There are lots of ways to ensure you stick to your goals, one of them being accountability.
Apparently some lady with a deep love for burritos lost 50 pounds eating Taco Bell (from the drive-thru - homegirl couldn't even get out of the car). And now, thanks to her tremendous success, the head honchos over at Taco Bell HQ are trying to make us all think about Taco Bell in a new way.
Ah, weight loss: the subject that’s sold a thousand glossies. I just got finished reading People magazine’s latest “Half Their Size!” spread, a semi-regular feature that celebrates regular people who have shed an entire person’s worth of pounds.
Happy New Year! Can you believe it's 2010? Where did the year go? Where did the decade go? Hell, where did my sequin jacket go? And why did I think that chasing a Jager Bomb with a bottle of Andre was a good idea? Oh lord.
If there's one thing I know about Americans, it's that we've got our priorities straight. We choose McDonalds over home-cooked meals, use plastic over paper (an attempt to "Go Green?") and love fitting into our old jeans more than having sex. Wait, what?
Fact: on a daily basis the majority of us treat our bodies like crap. Sure we work out, we (try) to eat healthy, we pour over the latest health magazines and shell out dough for cute workout gear. But there is nothing healthy about an existence made up of 3 hours of sleep; daily Venti Americanos; and too many weekends filled with booze, late night pizza and drunkity drunk dip, to keep count.

Goals are a part of life, whether you are the type of person who keeps them taped to your mirror...
We treat our bodies pretty poorly in college. We stay up late, we put our livers to the test (daily), and we eat a whole lot of unhealthy treats. And we feel the effects on Monday morning when we're trudging to class in pants that barely fit and a foggy, unhappy brain.
