Good plan starting now! Once you enter college, things can get so stressful (or so liberating) that you forget about your health.
I’d suggest you figure out how much time you can realistically set aside each day or each week to work out. See if your school has free/cheap fitness classes. (For example, my old university gym had free spinning, Zumba, etc. classes for students.) Check out any gyms/fitness centers around the school. For now, get into a routine that works for you. I suggest low-intensity cardio, such as walking, every day, high-intensity cardio, like running or intense dancing or Zumba, three times a week, and weight-lifting, whether with dumbbells or barbells, two-three times a week. When it comes to weight-lifting, look into deadlifts, squats, and rows. These work tons of muscles and get you results the fastest.
As for food, be prepared for it all to change once classes start. Depending on your schedule, you may not have a lot of time to eat. On the weekends, try to make out an easy lunch schedule of things you can make in advance so you have them ready throughout the week. Having healthy food nearby, whether in a dorm fridge or a local grocery store, will make you more likely to eat it.
Also know that campuses usually have a ton of free resources available, from personal training sessions to eating disorder support groups. If you need help with anything regarding your health, you can find it.
Best of luck to you! :)Leave a comment View 3 Notes
