I'd say portion control is the biggest thing in trying to avoid Freshman 15. If your school has buffet-style dining halls, it's pretty easy to go overboard. Even if you school is the type where you can buy various predefined meals it's still easy to gain weight since they're usually pretty huge portions. Along with studying and doing extracurricular activities, I'm definitely going to try to fit in some time to workout.

I have known about this speech by Eric Thomas for 2 years now. I listen to it before every workout, and on nights where I want to go to bed instead of studying. It's an inspirational video that reminds me that in order to be successful, you must always work hard. You must want it "as bad as you want to breathe." I'm going to college next year, and I have an opportunity of making my dream of becoming a doctor a reality and this video will always be there to motivate me to be my best.
