Dorm Room Workout: Doin’ It Dolphin Style

No, I'm not talking about sex. Although dolphins are very promiscuous animals. I'm talking about the dolphin pose, from yoga. It's a great strengthener for your back, shoulders, and core. Plus, it's quick, easy, and perfect for small spaces.

Spring Break Sexy: Get Real

It's hard to believe when you've got snow melting into your Uggs, but Spring Break is just around the corner. For me, a girl who has a countdown to the next Spring Break starting the day Spring Break ends, that news couldn't be better. But for those of you who are having that "OMG I HAVE TO BE IN A SWIMSUIT IN 6 WEEKS?!" meltdown, this is less than a pleasant realization.

Body Blog: When in Doubt, Stretch It Out

Sometimes, we may be really enthusiastic when we're working out (i.e. hot guy at 9:00 and I know he's watching me work this treadmill). This extra push on the body may cause strain to your muscles and no one wants leg cramps or excessive soreness the following morning!

She works out 6 days a week. She avoids the dessert buffet in the cafeteria. Her favorite hobbies on Facebook include running, yoga and lunges (and do not include brownies, TV marathons or couch time).

Body Blog: Stress Does the Body Bad

Stress has been my companion for as long as I can remember. I’m the kind of girl who likes having a million things to do because I love feeling productive. Unfortunately, I tend to take on more than I can handle. This leads to late nights, early mornings, constant worrying, tiredness, and, well…you know the routine.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Just Give Us an Hour

I just wish I could be somewhere else for an hour. Somewhere with no stress, no assignments, no anything but pure bliss and relaxation. Like in bed...with Joel McHale and Paul Rudd...while Paula Deen feeds us big, buttery cupcakes. Or on a yacht with Beyonce and Jay-Z, just hanging out and admiring the brand new Louboutin pumps they got me for my birthday.

Cosmo Says The Darndest Things: December Edition

So, I know this month’s Cosmo Says is fashionably late (blame it on a premature reaction to Tryptophan), but it's here now. And you should be happy because not only was the December issue chock full of goodies, but now you have something to distract you while your little cousins run around your house screaming and you attempt to digest that 3lbs of stuffing you just inhaled.

Body Blog: Bored Mind, Bored Body

There are days when not even a new playlist, the latest issue of Glamour, AND Tough Love on VH1 could make my 45 minute elliptical sesh fly by. My mind is bored, and so is my body. And when my body is bored, it’s not burning as many calories. The human body is designed to be efficient so when I do the same exercise day after day, my body uses fewer calories to do the same amount of work on day 30 than, say, on day 1.

Fit Finds: Free Week of Yoga!

I took a yoga class during my senior year of college. Somehow, the dingy and cramped gymnasium-esque room, ratty exercise mats and lingering body order stench kind of zapped the whole "zen" experience.

We spend our days glued to computer screens, sending more texts and BBMs a minute then our hearts beat, and accompanying our lives with a personal soundtrack courtesy of our iPods. After Twitter made it possible to tell the world what you’re doing every 2 seconds, I thought nothing could shock me.
