    How to Build the Confidence to Workout in a Sports Bra

    I used to live for the days I could go running in a sports bra and shorts. There’s just something so freeing about removing that one thin piece of clothing. I remember I would never want to put it back on after it took it off, because it feel so good to feel the breeze on my back and whipping past the bare skin of my stomach.

    This was about two years ago. Now I would never dare run around my neighborhood (or the neighborhood over) with just a sports bra on. Why? Because I’d be embarrassed.

    My Favorite Exercises to Build Arm Muscles

    Upper body used to be my least favorite thing to work on in the gym. Well arms were, I was all about shoulders and back. I don’t know what really happened, but within these last couple months, I’ve been loving working on my arms! Probably because I discovered some exercises I really love that aren’t just bicep curls. Because is it just me or do those get boring real quick?

    One of my goals this year is to have some real definition in my bicep muscles. And lucky for me, I build upper body muscle really easily. To reach that goal, these six exercises will be staples in my workout routine.My Favorite Exercises to Build Arm Muscles: 6 exercises to include in your workout routine | College with Caitlyn Read more…

    Skip fast food

    Okay, first things first: don’t hit up Burger King or McDonald’s thinking you’ll be able to get a good meal. Yes they have “salads,” but they’re just iceberg lettuce, some shredded carrots and cherry tomatoes. Not my ideal salad.

    When I first made the switch, I made the mistake of tagging along to fast food places with family and friends and always just ended up eating french fries and a milkshake. So not really the healthiest meal ever, and not something I would want to eat all the time.

    Also, just skip places known for their meat. Sorry Bdubs, I still love you! One day I’ll finally find a place around here that serves buffalo cauliflower wings to appease my wing craving.
