As a recent health-kick enthusiast, I have found it impossible to avoid any blog that provides me with healthy meals and short, beneficial workouts that actually work for my body.  Both of these ideas seem far-fetched for a full time college student with class, homework, Thursday-Saturday frat hopping, Sunday Funday and of course Jerk, duh.

Some of us have to work extra hard to get that crop top worthy body.

While I was hunting for my own sources to help keep me motivated, I came across The Slender Student. Not only is this girl a college student, just like us, but also gives you tons of easy/healthy alternative snacks and meals, as well as ass kicking workouts that you can do in a 12 x 12 dorm room.

This girl has it all!

She recently posted a recipe for a “Slender S’more,” which obviously is a s’more, but contains only 100 calories. The Slender Student puts together a s’more with a rice cake, one piece of dove chocolate and five mini marshmallows. There is no way a snack like this can be anything but mouth watering. Then a few posts later you will find a 20 minutes work out that will target every main muscle group in your body. I did it, and it hurts, a lot.

I understand how frustrating it can be to maintain school work, a healthy diet and an active lifestyle, but maybe The Slender Student can help reduce the size of that beer belly from all of those free drinks at flip night.

Not only can you follow The Slender Student’s blog, but you can follow her on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.

Best of luck my newly born health-kick enthusiasts!

Anxious for spring and summer to arrive during this weekend’s heatwave?  Capture the feeling of spring and summer in your cocktails any time of the year! Here are two drinks that I think will have you running around in shorts and sandals!

Not your grandma’s fruit punch:

Makes four drinks:

4 cups water

2 TAZO passion tea bags

4 ounces (4 shots) Bacardi Torched Cherry Rum or similar fruit alcohol

4 cups club soda (Schwepps or Canada Dry)

Ice

In the microwave, heat the cups of water until hot and add the tea bags. Let the tea steep for about five minutes if you desire a strong tea flavor. For weaker tea, let the tea bags steep for two minutes or less.

Let the tea come to room temperature before pouring over ice. Divide your ice evenly into four glasses and measure the tea evenly into each glass. Add one shot of the cherry rum and top off the glass with roughly a cup of club soda. Depending on the size of your glasses, feel free to add more or less of any ingredient depending on your taste!
