Staying Fit in the Winter

Hi y'all,

Staying fit in the winter is one of the hardest things! It's too cold to workout outside (at least here in Virginia it is). Plus, it is dark super early, not leaving you much time after work.

Gyms are also breeding grounds for germs and sickness. I paid for a membership to a gym for 4 months. Out of those 4 months, I was sick for about 3.5 months. I was also paying so much (gyms are expensive, here!) that I felt like I couldn't miss a day, so even though I felt like death I was still going to the gym every day.

I ended up signing up for Beachbody just over a year ago. While, I don't work out every day, I am much healthier than I was when I went to the gym. I also have more variety of what I can do. Instead of lifting a few weights and spending time on the elliptical (really the only thing I miss about the gym is the elliptical).

I also really suggest Youtube workouts. They have yoga, and the uber popular Blogilates.

It's also possible to get online subscriptions to Pure Barre or the other types of barre workouts. They can get pricey; however, it is cheaper to have an online subscription than to go to the studio in person.

Overall, I think the biggest part to staying fit is consistency. With daylight hours being slightly different during the winter, it can be hard to be consistent.

To help with consistency: write it down in a planner/schedule your workout! It's even better if you have a workout buddy.

Do you have any tips for staying fit during the winter?



  1. I go to barre3 in studio and with my membership receive the online classes for free! I try to be flexible. If I planned to go to the studio on a Monday but it is now snowing, I try to fit in an online class. Also, I make a realistic goal of going 3x a week and 2x online. The online classes are varied in time so I could do a 10 min online class one night that is jam packed with other things and feel great.

Nine Potential New Member Sorority Recruitment Tips

Hi y'all!

August is quickly approaching, which for many means its back to school time. For college students elsewhere, it also means recruitment season is here!

My school did a spring recruitment (aka January); however, many schools, especially in the south, do recruitment in August and September.

If you're going through recruitment, congratulations!

I went through recruitment in two different ways (both formal and the colonization process) and then on the sister side! I went through part of recruitment my freshman year spring, got sick and couldn't finish. However, it worked out for the best because I got to join Alpha Delta Pi through the colonization process in September of my sophomore year.

Here are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Each house is different at every school. Did you hear about sorority XYZ at ABC University? Get that stereotype right out of your head. Every single house is different because different girls make up the chapter. I have friends that would t…

Well, I'm finally doing it: committing to blogging. Again. I'm super excited to be jumping back into the blogging world after a hiatus. I attempted to blog under some other names, but nothing felt right. So, I figured my own name would be the best way to keep a blog that I loved. 

I'm Lindsey. I'm a 20-something elementary school teacher with a passion for sharing things about life. I originally started blogging back at the end of my senior year of high school, and continued through college. Post grad life made it hard to balance everything (mainly because I was working full time and going to school again). However, I know that I'm going to need this blog.
As of right now, I have accepted my first full time "big girl job" in the field I'm passionate about. I'm teaching 5th grade this year, and I'm so excited! Along with my first teaching job, I'm also going to be working in retail part time and I'm taking one grad class. 

I'm stil…
