Ok so I did it not sitting on a street pole in Boston lol I have done that but this I think was more scary. I decided to get up and show some moves before and after the competition this past Friday in a bar!! HAHA It was great so scary because I was just waiting for someone to say get the fat chick off the stage ect. You know the same things people in this world have come to expect from being a plus size lady.. But it didn’t happen of course my ladies at Love were crazy supportive but I mean DUH were like a family over there its great but other people were supportive cheering me on I mean common I bad Kittied in public haha! It was great I’ve decided if they do this again im all over it!! I’m going to compete already started planning out my routine and picked the song its perfect!! Check out a few pics below! 🙂 I felt like a champ and to be honest this was one of the first times I was in public that I didn’t care what people thought about me because I was having a blast!!! The girls who competed did amazing I was so proud to say I’m from their studio it was great and Seirra Won!!!
I have so much to more to write about!! But that will have to come tomorrow update on splits my rock star and more!! Stay tuned!!
Well happy Sunday everyone!! Hope you all had a great weekend! in
As usual I had a poltastic weekend full of the usual climbs and inverts spins and spining but beyond that I went to my first pole Jam with Samantha Star!! She was awesome she helped me with some ideas on how to make my climb and invert better and some floor exercises on how to practice them without worrying about being in the air. I think this is going to start to make a huge difference in how I invert and climb and will make it better when I get into harder moves! We also learned a spin called the rockstar. Now lets say im not 100% on it but hey it looked pretty good!! Can’t wait to get a video since from my understanding its considered a more advanced spin which makes me feel great!!
Now on to the challenge since it is what I’m almost even more excited about! Another goal of mine that wasn’t listed on my goal list was for my flexibility and my splits and measurements! So here is what today is as my start!
Left: 16 inches
Right: 15.5 inches
Left: 28 inches
Straddle: Inches to floor
Left: 25 inches
Right: 23 inches
7.5 inches to ground
Split Left First:
Split Right First
The plan is to take these measurements every week to see my progress and take photos every month to see how much better my straddle and stretches are and posting monthly the differences that happen. How will I do this you ask. Plan is to stretch every morning run a little at lunch then stretch after (short stretch) then do another good hour or so a night! That will take care of the flexibility! Little sore from getting the start pictures but hey lets get some more stretching in!
Well that’s all for now happy poleing!!! Write soon! Check out the where I am now in my splits 🙂 we all have to start somewhere! 🙂
Well another year has come and gone but I’m not stopping with my weight loss goals! 40 last year and 40 this year or more who knows! Since starting pole in October I’ve fallen in love quite hard with this sport. Proving stereotypes wicked wrong and really finally enjoying something like I did volleyball ( which I really thought was hard to do!! Damn Near Impossible!
In this video I’m working on climbs inverts the chair(which is getting better but still needs work) the attitude which I really like and would love to be able to get it down one handed. I also switched up my back hook by working on something called the power back hook. I think its quite evident from my last video how much my strength has improved with how I lift into the back hook to make it higher!
I then through in a freestyle stupid youtube didnt like either of the songs I put in thus the silence in the front and I can tell you that wasnt the song I wanted for the first part I was really using this….
But I know the freestyle isn’t the best its a start I can see what I did not so great get a shorter song would have helped too and Im still learning so what the hell why not try it!
This song really hits a soft spot with me and in some ways its how I feel when it comes to some of the stereotypes I’m fighting doing pole! But I digress I’m kicking ass and taking names and I don’t care who knows about it I LOVE IT!
Pole Goals in 2013:
- Get a strong invert and climb on both sides!! As you can see my right side is a wee bit weaker than the other in both of these subjects!
- Do a Gemini I don’t know if I’m forcing anything but I really like this move and would love to be able to work on it this year!
- Strengthen my forearms so I can get better with my split grip!
Those are just the top of the many I have!
Weight loss Goals 2013:
- TRACK TRACK TRACK!! Don’t get lazy like I did towards the end of the year!
- Maintain and loose 40 more I did it this year why cant i this year!!
- Remember the off scale victories to keep you going there will be bad days and bad weeks but when you remember what you did right one week and one day it will give you the motivation to not give up.
Personal Goals 2013:
- Run another Color Me Rad Race
- Finish my Masters from SNHU
- Really work hard to get more photography work and build KelleyAnne Artistic Creations Photography and Graphic Design ( Hey got to add a shameless plug!)
Looks Like I have a busy year ahead of me!! Good Luck to all of you out there with big goals this year!!!
Happy Poleing write soon!
Just wanted to post my newest inver video you can actually see a huge diffrence from even a week or two ago above!! Really happy with my progress!!!!
