F orgetthecold and forget
the stress, because only
on thing matters:
It's the most wonderful
time of the year.
Whether or not Andy
Williams is the one to tell you,
it's the truth. It's the holiday
season and that means turkey,
eggnog and family.
For those who didn't make
it home for Fall Break, like
myself, this is the moment
we've all been waiting for.
Soon we'll be in the comfort of
our own homes, warming up
beside the fire with the pets
that we've missed for so long
and promising never to leave
(if only that were true).
Home-cooked meals
are being prepared as you
watch "A Charlie Brown
Thanksgiving," and the snow
will slowly fall outside. The
punch line: you don't have
any classes to walk to. There's
finally an excuse to relax and
play on your Nintendo, read
a book or catch a late-night

Be thankful for the joys in
life, because others may not

coming back to reality when
the holiday is over, don't fret.
Only 10 more days of class plus
some finals, and we're back at

and that is something to be
thankful for.

UI[ last game day

There's snow on the ground
and that means one thing:
winter is coming.
However, before we
embrace the frigid weather
that we as Wolverines have
come to know and tolerate,
we still have one last game
day to celebrate.
Whether it's your last game
day as a student, or your last
game day of freshman year,
this is the time to rally and
embrace your Wolverine
So while you're bundled up
under multiple layers of maize
and blue spirit, here are some
things you must do during the
last game day of the season. If
you don't, you'll have to wait
another year.

This is fun. I don't know
how you could go through
a football Saturday without
dancing on some kind of ele-
vated surface. Embrace this
last weekend of football tail-
gating and have fun with your
friends. Jump on a ledge and
forget about your impending
finals. Make sure you take a
picture while you're up there.
While I love pizza always,
there's something about gorg-
ing yourself on melted cheese
and bread after a long day
(morning) of tailgating. It's
almost tradition at this point
that my friends and I get Bell's
Pizza for lunch every game
day. In that moment when I'm

stuffing my face with pizza,
I've literally tasted nothing
better. Stopping for pizza is a
great opportunity to recharge
with your friends before
cheering on the Wolverines in
the Big House.
I know it's cold. I am
extremely aware that it is
cold. However, there are a
limited number of games to
cheer on the team, the team,
the team. This is your last
opportunity until next year
(or ever if you're graduating).
I know watching the game
from your television while
sipping hot chocolate sounds
tempting, but nothing beats
the rousing atmosphere of the
Big House. Besides, this is a
perfect opportunity to make
use of the maize and blue

Just when you think you
have worked off all the
Halloween candy, the real
holiday feasting begins.
Whether you are trying to
look great in that New Year's
dress, impress your friends
you haven't seen since
summer or just prove to your
parents you didn't gain the
freshman 15, everyone has
a reason to want to stay in
shape over the next couple of
The cold weather of
November and December
makes everyone want to
nuzzle into pajamas and
a snuggie. Working out
becomes even more of a
chore than it already was
but it is possible, through the
freezing temperatures and
warm stuffing, to get some
exercise in.
If you are like me and
running in nice weather
is unthinkable, doing it in
negative degrees is pretty
much impossible. But there

are tons of ways to
work out indoors that aren't
running on a treadmill at the
Try ayoga class or a fitness
class like Title Boxing.
To avoid venturing out of
your house into the cold,
download a workout video
and do a workout right in
your room. Insanity or P90X
can get your blood pumping
within 10 feet of your bed.
While most of us like to
think that if we work out we
can eat whatever we want,
that isn't how our bodies
work. Weight loss begins
in the kitchen, where you
need to decide what to not
delight yourself with. So
even though it's the holidays,
consider portion sizes when
allowing yourself a treat
every now and then. There
are so many good side dishes
during the holidays and it's
easy to eat everything...
but don't! Have a taste of
everything, but just a small
spoonful. You won't feel
like you missed out, and you

won't feel like you overate
I'll admit it, on
Thanksgiving I usually don't
eat anything all day until my
mom serves the turkey, but
this isn't the best way to keep
your eating in check over
the holidays. If you starve
yourself all day you are more
likely to overeat during the
big meals.
Eat breakfast, lunch and
snacks throughout the day
like you would normally
so that when the fancy
dinner comes, you will don't
overeat, but get enough to
keep you full for quite some
Need to get away from
your mom's prying questions
about school and your major?
How about your grandma's
insistence that "you should
meet a nice boy/girl"? Use
a trip to the gym to escape
your relatives for a few hours
this holiday season. Your
mental health and your new
toned body will thank you.
