I am getting extremely excited for starting my fourth (and final) year in University. I fell in love with Manchester University and ever since I started here I’ve had the absolute time of my life. I live in a hell of a city and I’m so thankful that I study a course I love and have had a ridiculous, unexpected, emotional and thoroughly fabulous time here. I thought I’d try something new this year and incorporate all my buzzy, fuzzy excitement into this blog with – Get Fit For Freshers.
Are you just starting University? Excited to head off to Freshers Week or Welcome Week or whatever your University likes to call it… it will always just be ‘Freshers’ to us students? Or are you heading for a Re-Freshers (or Re-Re-Re-Freshers, if you’re as old as me!)? You know you want to look your best.
Freshers Week is the first week of term and it can be mad and emotional, it can be amazing fun and it can be tiring. It’s where you start to meet your potential new friends, your new house mates and your future crushes (don’t lie!) so it’s a fantastic time to be looking and feeling your best. And I know what you’re thinking, that Freshers is all about the booze (welcome to UK University Life if you’re a foreign blog reader!); but it’s not. It is a great time to bond with people, over a beer, over a hangover, over a coffee, over a run in the park – it’s about you not about a Freshers Stereotype of any kind. It’s a good time to have your confidence up though, whether you’re far away from home or just round the corner it’s still going to be tough meeting new people – of course it is, but you’ll manage and you’ll love it – so it’s a fantastic time to look great and feel great, inside and out.
I will be posting right up and through September on health and fitness and lifestyle to hopefully help inspire some of you to feel great and Fit For Freshers. I will post First Year Tips, work out ideas, motivation, maybe some low-calorie cocktail recipes (oooh yes!), some healthy Fresher Friendly Meals and tips to beat that Freshers Flu. If you like the sound of it then please follow my blog, or follow me on bloglovin to keep up to date with all my posts.
Got that Fresh Feeling? I do! Tell me all about it below, where you’re heading and why you’re excited or even nervous. If you know someone else starting Uni or College this year, or already there, please pass this post onto them I’d love to connect and share tips, tricks, ideas and recipes!
Keep up to date with my on Instagram @jessiefrisbee and use the hashtag #fitforfreshers if you want to send me any pictures (that would be dead cool!). Same applies on Twitter, I am @JessieFrisbee93
P.s. As always, I am not a professional fitness trainer and I’m not qualified for…well, anything, but I’m certainly not qualified to give medical or nutrition advice. Take everything with a pinch of salt (not literally) and understand that I’m just telling y’all what I do, and constantly asking you guys for advice too, not saying it will necessarily ‘work’ for you. But I hope you feel, at the least, inspired.
