Fit with Forester: Healthy Living

By Morgan Forester
On February 2, 2012

 

It is beginning to set in, the old procrastination and lack of sleep routine that most of get into during school. It's not a criticism, I am just as guilty of doing it as you are. I am beginning to see how much more stress it causes me though. I know it is way easier said than done but try restructuring the time in your day for certain activities like homework versus time watching T.V. I have a tendency to get really into to whatever show I'm watching and then, next thing I know, it's nine o'clock at night and I still have papers to write. Sounding like your mother is not my goal here (even though I am sounding like it aren't I?) the goal is to help everyone keep their stressors and their lives in balance so we can all be healthier.

Exercise of the Week: Curtsies

Stand with feet together, hands at your sides (with or without weights), with good posture. Take a large step back with your right foot.  Keeping  the distance between your two feet from the step you just took, slide your right foot over towards your left as much as you can without turning your hips. Keeping your torso in a straight line lower your body as if you are doing lunges evenly dispersing your weight between your two legs. Do 10 repetitions for each leg. This is great for your legs, hips and glutes.

Recipe of the Week: Crockpot Sesame Chicken

Ingredients

2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1 tablespoon ketchup

2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Directions:

Makes 4 servings

Place chicken breasts in the crockpot. Whisk together remaining ingredients and pour the mixture over the chicken. Cook on  high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours.

Eat it on its own or grab a bag of microwavable rice to serve with it. Enjoy!

Activity of the Week: Get Involved

There are plenty of clubs on campus to join, explore them and see which one fits you best. If you aren't interested in committing to a club, go to a couple of the events the school hosts, like free movies (Paranormal Activity this week), Mr. Lyndon, Winter Weekend activities or even free skating and a free Super Bowl Party this Sunday. Whatever it is take part in it and be a part of the college.
