Keeping Fit at Uni :)

Keeping fit at University is very important. I know a lot of people who go to uni and leave with a degree asl well as a stone or two. With all the lectures, studying at home, binge drinking, nursing hangovers, watching jeremy kyle instead of being workshops and junk food. It can be quite hard to find time to do some exercise or pick up an apple. But I take fitness quite seriously, it's just something to keep me busy. It's not like I need to lose any weight with my measurements being 39, 29, 40 and wear Sizes 8/10. I'd like to maintain my weight. I don't do diets because...well..I love food!

Last year...  

At uni I joined the dance society and needless to to say I didn't stick to it. Hated it, the other people there were very pompous. The uni doesn't have a dance course! so inexperienced people teaching other inexperienced people great. So I decided to join the gym instead. This worked out well for the first two weeks, then I just got lazy because the gym was always! packed with body builders whenever I found time to go.  

Instead I decided to start going to the zumba, yoga and hips bums and tums. I love these classes. me and my housemates went a lot. But unfortunately due the fact that my student finance being very late, my savings had pretty much ran out. On top of that I wasn't getting any  interviews or call backs from job applications. I started thinking outside the box and a got a job which started at 9pm and finished at 4am. So I didn't have time to go the gym or fitness classes as after work, I would nap then go to lectures then nap again the back to work again. Amongst that I was partying like there was no tomorrow. God knows how I passed with a 1st, 6 2:1s and a 2:2.

So this year! 

Aerial arts
I have decided to be a little be more serious with going to the gym. Luckily at my uni it's only £17 per month. I would like to go at least go the gym twice and attend a fitness class once a week.

I would also like to join the Aerial Arts and Pole dancing society at uni, as I already know the basics of them. Only found out that one of my uni mates from halls two years ago, partly runs the society too. which is even more reason why I should join.

I know I will probably get judged for doing it but stigma aside. It is pretty good fitness and quite impressive skills to have. All the while avoiding taking the bus/taxis and walking if it possible to.
