"Why should we wreck ourselves?"
"I couldn't be any happier."
Spoiler: most people don't really gain 15 pounds.
"That's the chick who may have eaten Lady Gaga."
I thought I hadn't seen an actor do crazy things with their body for a while. That was until I saw Chris Pratt's before and after.
Despite the many campus tours we were all forced to attend and information sessions at random hotels in your hometown, nothing really does college life justice. Recently the Freshmen 15 fable was debunked and with that I have set on a quest to expose the harsh truths of college life.
The "Skyscraper" singer walked the red carpet wearing a tight, body-hugging silver mini-dress with a plunging neckline. She accessorized with some metallic bangles and a pair of Louboutin pumps, and even though 99% of us would never be able to pull off a look like that if we tried, Lovato was subject to a lot of criticism that night. So what was everyone upset over? Her body.
Everyone knows that sex without a condom is better than with that thin latex lining. According to guys it “feels amazing” and is “probably the best thing on earth.” (Clearly, guys have never tried dipping pretzels into frosting....) But we also know that no matter how good it is, it isn’t good enough to risk getting pregnant and spending our days playing peek-a-boo instead of beer pong.
You work out. You eat healthy foods (most of the time). You choose fro yo over ice cream, and 100 calorie packs over double fudge brownies. You drink lots of water, get lots of sleep. You do everything you're supposed to do to live a healthy life and you're still gaining weight.
I have something to share with you. Something many of you don't want to hear (ignorance is bliss, right?), but something you all need to hear. Something that goes against everything we've been taught our whole lives. Something that is going to rock your world. You ready for it?
It's my third (and basically last) week at this, and I have come to a conclusion -- this challenge, in its perfect entirety, is impossible to complete. At least for someone like me who stays up way past 10 p.m. at night. However, I've still learned some very valuable lessons.
Make this challenge stop. PLEASE, make it stop! I'm failing at this challenge quite miserably, and it's just so discouraging.
It's one week in. And my late-night self is hungry. Really hungry. Ugh.
Oh, the wonderful world of late night eating. Whether it’s 2 a.m. pizza or that leftover Chinese food during your favorite nighttime shows, late night eating goes with college like studying goes with college. Except we actually, uh, do it. So, yeah, bad analogy.
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?
