100 Push Ups Per Day! – Week 1 [One Month Challenge]

I’m no longer in the most immaculate shape of my life. I was at one point. Second semester of Freshman year I was in that frickin’ gym 4 times a week, sometimes 5. Now, years later, I have a job -- 3 jobs in fact -- and I’ve got bills to pay, and an apartment to not get kicked out of, and what’s one of the first things that went by the wayside as I entered adulthood?

10 Mistakes You’re Making at the Gym

Like most people, I have a love/hate relationship with the gym. In fact, our flame is so hot and cold that I sometimes I stare at the door the entire time I'm working out, counting down the minutes 'til it's time to leave. There are, of course, other days where I am so excited to go to the gym its like okay, who put the steroids in my coffee?

Need: Nike + FuelBand

Okay, I'm not usually one for seemingly unnecessary workout accessories. I'm perfectly fine with my yoga mat and iPod Nano. I bought into the Power Balance band thing last year, and while it did kind of work it was definitely more of a placebo effect than anything else.

CollegeCandy Investigates: Does Slim Fast Work?

CollegeCandy Investigates: Does Slim Fast Work?

I have always been a fan of any quick fix diet plan. If there was a pill that would melt away pounds within a day, I would be first in line to buy it. So when I was perusing the web one day and happened upon the Slim Fast website, I saw an opportunity and ran with it. After all it has 'fast' and 'slim' in the name, so how bad could it be?

Web Spy: WalkJogRun

I always have a difficult time staying motivated about working out. The problem is, I'm lazy, so the hardest part is actually just getting out of bed early or getting my butt off the sofa to drive to the gym and work out. Since I have a hard time dragging myself to the gym, I'm trying to stay in shape by running around my neighborhood. I still don't do that as often as I should, but it works for me, since it doesn't require me to go anywhere except out my front door.

Diagnosis: “Drunkorexia?”

Diagnosis: “Drunkorexia?”

To parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and writers of The Denver Post, Thank you so much for your concern about my supposed “drunkorexia,” which is apparently the deliberate decision to eat less food on days destined for drunken debauchery. Though this is not an official medical term, it has been noted in Colorado as a recent “growing trend” among college women.

While I clearly couldn’t metabolize chocolate-covered pretzels and pizza like they could, looking back I realize that even I slimmed down just by correcting a few errors in thinking.

What Man Does To Woo The Woman

A while back I read a column written by the CC Staff listing 7 habits/tactics that women have engrained into their everyday lives that they utilize to “play the game” of attracting men. As far as men trying to attract the opposite sex it was said, “…men have it easy. As far as I know, they approach you and whip out the pick-up line. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t.”

At some point this week, exercise stopped being something I had to do and started being something I wanted to do. I'm honestly not sure what changed.

And then watching all my old friends performing on St. Patrick's Day, so full of energy, making it all look so easy.

Who wants to sweat indoors when eating ice-cream by the lake is so much more appealing (and yummy?) But on the flip side, you'll be donning a bikini before you know it (like, ahem, next week) and you want to look h-o-t.

One of the biggest motivations for us college girls to get to the gym every day is the thought of all the hot guys that will be there.

It's strange, considering I write the a column on health and fitness, but I really don't like exercising. I like the benefits of exercising, though, so I'll do just about anything to get those without having to step foot into the stinky, sticky gym. So when a shoe company’s all, “PSH girl, you don’t need to go to the gym! Just wear these shoes instead!” I get a little excited.
