Body Blog: Healthify Your Late Night Eating

When we drink (and we all know this by now), we're not only consuming a ton of calories from our friend the frozen marg, but much like that fabulous children's book "If You Give A Moose A Muffin," if you give me a tequila shot, I'm going to want some mac and cheese/pizza/other late night snack to go with it. And that means may-jor (Rachel Zoe voice) extra fat and calories.

Body Blog: My Clothes are Lying To Me

You’ve made some big, healthy changes in your lifestyle (i.e. skipping the elevator and opting for the stairs en route to your dorm room) and you’re hoping they’ve paid off when you try on some new jeans. But don’t rely on your fave fashion store to accurately determine your size.

Weekly Wrap Up: Approach Me!

Thanks to this whole 5-day dating challenge, I’ve had a pretty tiring week....and my still cheeks hurt from smiling all the time. But no pain no gain, right? And by "gain" I mean "guys approaching me and offering to buy me drinks."

We’ve All Been There: Sweat Pant Weight Gain

Somehow you ended up with four 9am classes this semester. WTF? You can barely get up for your kickboxing class at noon on Fridays, and someone expects you to make it to class (ready to learn!?) by 8:50am the rest of the week?

Would You Tell Your BFF That She’s FAT?

A recent survey of 3,000 women revealed that one in five women secretly think her best friend is fat but won't dare share this information with her. The study also suggested that the truth was a big "no no" because 1 in 5 women ended the relationship post dishing the info.

Operation Resolution: Ready, Set, Go!

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.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Resolutioning

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.

Skinny Jeans Are Better Than Sex?

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?

Welcome Home, Honey!

So that time of year is creeping up on us. The time when we must throw some clothes into duffel, fill the rest of the bag with dirty laundry, kiss our roommate and our bottle of vodka goodbye, and head home for fall break.

Weekly Wrap Up: Happy Halloween!

In case you’ve been locked in a soundproof, internet, cell phone, and calendar-free room for the past week, let me be the first to remind you that there’s a holiday happening this Saturday. A wonderful holiday full of tricks, sweets, and more grown-up treats.

Major Halloween No Nos

Just because Halloween happens on a weekend - allowing us to go balls to the wall without fear of vomiting in class the next day- it doesn't mean you should disregard the basic No-No's of this very religious holiday:

Bring On The Muffin Top?

Who doesn’t want to have their cake and it eat too? Well what if you could have your cake, eat it and up your cup size all at the same time without doing permanent damage to your figure? It sounds too good to be true doesn't it?

Just How Hard Is It To Burn Those Extra Calories?

So the fall semester is rolling round again. For you freshies that means the dreaded “Freshman 15." For the rest of us it means the shame of gaining an undisclosed amount of weight even though we are supposed to be “adjusted” and know how to stay healthy while we’re away from home.
