So this is it. Summa 16 is over. Tomorrow early in the morning I head back to school. All summer I had been living at home with parents working and hanging out with friends. Now it’s back to college life. I go to college about a 12 hour drive from my home and friends, but it’s great for my major and close to the city so it’s 100% worth it. Well this summer has been quite a summer. I worked at a summer camp, made new friends, got more involved with church (very important will definitely blog about that in the near future), dropped a dress size or two, and did many many many many things outside of my comfort zone. This has definitely has made the top 5 summers in my life. But now is back to reality. I am now going into my fourth year of college and this is going to be the best one yet. I am genuinely really excited for this year.
I admittedly did not reach my goal for the summer, but I have progressed which is good. My new goal has been adjusted and I know I will reach this one. The key is not giving up.
With a new environment comes a new routine. Honestly, trying to be healthy in college is a challenge. I have a meal plan so I have to eat whatever is in the cafeteria and sometimes the options are not the healthiest. One a positive note colleges- well my college- has a full gym for free. It is equipped with lots of equipment and weights it even has classes. Exercise should not be an issue, it’s just finding time and staying motivated. I suggest maybe setting up a time for everyday on Sunday to go with a friend to the gym. Going with someone makes it a thousand times better.
So from now I will posting from school and I will be giving tips and progress from my college. So if you or someone you know is in college and needs tips this is the blog. I’ll try to post a few more times week. Please share with your friends and family. I really want to help people anyone that needs it.
