mikebontoft I think that would definitely be worth it... Somehow they seem to mess up even the cold veggies. Lol. But i do have a mini fridge in my room.

my room is so small though. Its really more like 2 feet wide that i can walk in. One of those dedicated singles.

Maybe I did say it or not but yeah the school food is incredibly greasy its gross.

What I was wondering too is how do you follow the eating schedule with being in school? You have your own stuff or what?

It's been about 10 years but I ate in the regular cafeteria for a few years. I remember some form of veggies available at every lunch or dinner, also fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, salads, sandwiches, baked potato, pasta were there among the corndogs, pizza, and eggrolls.

If you spend few $ a week on raw fruits and vegs and nuts at the local grocery you can supplement the crap a little bit in off hours. It might not be cool to eat almonds, carrots, and celery for a snack but you never hear anybody say dude I wish I wouldn't have eaten all those veggies I feel like crap now. If you have a hotpot you can make pasta, beans and rice, soups etc.. Lots of carbs aren't really bad if you are working out

madisonHQ hey i have something called "ALTUS DOOR GYM" new, its perfect for a dorm workout, you just hook it too your door and you can do sqats and every single thing you can think of. pm me if interested, it will help you out.

edingeek Get a band set... Can get nice sets for CHEAP CHEAP on

As for eating... It'd be optimal to invest in the bare minimums... Multi-vitamins, maybe some whey protein if you can budget it (can go cheap and maybe spend like $30 a month)... Since i'm sure their food does not have much protein and is mostly carbs and fat, lol.

Creapure creatine mono is always nice as well... year supply is like $20.

1stTimeFocus00 honestly, since you just want to loose weight, just have like a cardio mat or some sort of cushion for your butt and back and do cardio and core exercises. Here is a list of exercises that i already have worked up:
- Single legged, wide, diamond, regular
Assisted pushups
8 count push ups
Overhead arm clap
Cherry Pickers
Military Press
The motivator
High Jumper
Side Straddle Hop
Rower (Unassisted Situp with arms extended out above head)
Flutter Kicks
Leg Spreader
V- Ups (arms horizontal with floor, lifting legs up)
Mountain Climber
Russian Twist
Supine Bicycle

Flow~cus Invest in a pull-up bar that fits in the doorway. I got one from wal-mart for $20 and love it. Then run the stairs (or just go out for a run) and come up with a push-up, pull-up, and ab workout that you can do a couple times a week. If you can find the p90x ab workout its a killer workout.

deezx5 Assuming your dorm has multiple floors and you aren't on bottom start by taking the stairs and use the stairs to workout. Go all the way up jog to the other side of the top floor then all the way down and repeat until you are hurting.

Buy a set of dumbbells and check out these exercises and others like the iron cross. The kind of dumbbells you can add or remove weights from will be your best buy.

You also have pushups, situps, jumping jacks, flutter kicks
