For some of you off to college for the first time, it is also a time of freedom from mom's rules- but how's it going?
Are you finding you are not eating regular meals or maybe not making the healthiest choices for meals and or snacks? Or are maybe drinking too many empty calories and not getting enough sleep? All of this could add up to not feeling the healthiest or to some of the dreaded weight gain. But by taking stock now it doesn’t have to.
For those of you that have your own kitchen, a little planning and making healthy lunches “to go” may be one of the easiest ways to make some changes. (Oh and could save some money too!)
Tired of the same old sandwiches? Try the turkey and cheese with lettuce on a wrap or pita instead. That can be tasty and won’t dry out.
With a chill in the air, a thermos filled with soup and a side of whole grain crackers could be a nice change.
It is apple season, so a crisp, sweet apple for dessert or snack – maybe with a wedge of cheese can break the monotony of the same old.
Did you sign up for the aerobic dance for your phys. ed. elective? Remember moving your body is a way to maintain weight, feel good and/or reduce stress-something-you have plenty of when trying to keep up the hectic schedule.
Good luck with those midterms!
