In this installment of Healthy Living, we’re going to build a sample fitness program for time-crunched college students, that can be followed on a weekly basis. This program caters to a college student who: 1) has a very busy schedule 2) wants to lose weight and increase fitness 3) enjoys a variety of fitness activities.

You may have heard of the “Student Appreciation Days” held each November; Blah Buster Day is the spring version of it! This time in March the semester seems never-ending and spring break unreachable, but the time passes a little more quickly with events as fun as Blah Buster Day (and with the great weather we have been having)!

Here are my top five favorite sites for treats this year with some very close runner-ups. Keep in mind a few of the places had been vanquished by hungry students before I even had a chance to get to them! Continue reading
