Trips and tricks for eating healthy and exercising for the college student

Weekly Progress Report

If you’ve been keeping up with the blog you’ve been seeing continued posts about recipes, exercises and personal stories written by Allyson and myself. This is something that we are going to continue with up until the end of the semester. I’m still enjoying finding the content to post and learning about new exercises and random nutrition facts as well!

Something I’d like to add to the project dawned on me in class today. Someone had suggested that another student get in touch with the Marist abroad offices for his blog, and I thought we could do something along the same lines for our project. I think it would be beneficial to get in touch with Health Services/Counseling Services to share our blog with students. I’ve noticed that health services sometimes does seminars about eating healthy/living healthy and our blog definitely drives home this message as well. I have a meeting with my counselor Andrea tomorrow so I plan on bringing it up during our session!

I’m excited about this idea because I hope we will be able to help even more people change their lifestyles for the better.

Thanks for reading!

Post Spring Break Plans

Hello again,

If you’ve been keeping up with our project blog, you’ll see that I was able to post some material over spring break (surprising I know). I also got to write about my boxing class experience which was fun to do! I will probably write another post on how the workout benefits your body and break down the workout step by step, just so you know what you’re getting yourself into ;) Other than that, I had posted some summer-y recipes since the weather has been getting so warm!! From here on out, Allyson and I want to incorporate more visual aids such as videos into our blog so that you can see how to do the workouts that we post on the blog. Again, I’m going to try to see if my boxing instructor wants to write an article about a detox program he e-mailed to us during boxing; it will really flush your system out and have you looking great.

This week Allyson and I plan to work on our grading rubric as I stated in my last post… Probably will have that finished by Wednesday or Thursday! Looking forward to meeting back up with her and working on the project; we have mostly been doing independent work thus far with the blog posts and what not.

Other than that we continue to keep posting exercise routines, recipes, etc. If anyone has any requests on what we should post feel free to comment :)

Thanks for reading!


Progress Report Thus Far

So if you’ve been keeping up with our actual project blog @ you’ll see that Allyson and I have been busy posting recipes, workouts, inspirational photos, etc.

The next direction that I would like to take the blog is writing a spotlight on my boxing experience with Ron Lipton and our boxing course. It was an awesome course and not to mention you can take it here at Marist at a class; if that’s not convenient then I don’t know what is!

Additionally, we plan to start working on our grading rubric once we come back from spring break. I think that it will be a pretty simple task to accomplish, but it will be interesting to hold the fate of our project in our own hands. I can’t say that I’ve ever had the freedom to determine HOW a project/paper/assignment will be graded, so this will be a new experience for me.

I’ve enjoyed posting and blogging as I’ve stated in my previous posts, and I’m really thankful for Pinterest. If you aren’t familiar with it, I suggest getting an account! It is a great way to organize your “ToDo” projects, workouts, cute outfits, etc. And it is certainly a great tool for our project; just another example of how technology and social media is so helpful and accessible.

Anyway, just wanted to check in before spring break! Again, check out our actual project blog @
