Well another week and more pole successes and challenges.
But lets start with some awesomeness! So Dangerous Curves is 19 days away the showcase at the studio is on August first! Well the shoes are done, and OMG I’m in love. Thankfully I have an awesome friend who is fantastic at sewing that’s going to help me complete my vision for my costume for the show since I still need a lot of work on how the hell to use my sewing machine! The routine is coming along the floorwork and chair piece is throwing me off a little but I know ill get it! It’s funny because I’m going to a competition about empowering women to show we can do what people who “look” more athletic can do and im sitting here say man my ass shouldn’t twerk haha. Oh well the joys of hating your body for so long. I’m better but I still have a long way to go. Going to be working on it more this week on friday can’t wait!
This weekends wins!
So this weekend during the #oldschoolpolerchallenge one of the tricks was the teddy. So i was sitting and editing and messing around a little and I said what the hell lets try it! And guess what!! The first try wasnt too bad i was terrified to let my hand down but I gave it a shot. I posted it to my RNLA support group and OMG the love and the support that was given to me by my poler peers was incredible. Such sweet words and even some support from one of my pole Idols CLEO!!! I almost died. After all the love I was receiving i thought lets get some shorts! And well I did and then this happened!!
Yup a full on teddy I couldn’t believe it this journey is taking me to such amazing places the amount of strength im getting is incredible.
Also another huge win would be working on my freestyle last week I decided to take my lunchtime to just dance. I was feeling a song and I just tried to make it flow so check that out here!
There’s things i would change about it but I really think its a great start into really exploring what you can do without a pole or a chair just you, the floor and the music. So much fun!
Last super win for this post…
Been working on getting so height from my splits siting into them is great but I want more range!!
So check this out! Not to bad still working with my PNF stretching and rockin legs n abs stretches sooo good! On leg is clearly better then the other but I’m really happy with my progress!
So that’s all for today’s post im sure there will be more this week so much going on!
Just remember this:
Stay strong, Stay Positive and Stay Fabulous!
Well clearly its been a while since my last blog and holy hell a lot has changed!!
So lets to a quick flashback:
So back in 2013 in the beginning of the year I fell off the pole and hurt my arm pretty good. With the amazing help of my now very dear friend Tobin(shes also co owner/instructor at the studio I go to) was helping me rehab my arm and i was getting to a great place almost back to pole i was chair dancing which has become one of my newest obsessions working on my flexibility which whoa the progress from where i was when i first posted just you wait! I got a new better paying job, then just a few days into my new job my husband and I found out the most amazing news, we were expecting our first little bundle of joy named Gen who blessed our little family with her presents in Dec of 2013. Now here is where is gets a little hairy if you will, I wont bore you with the details but I almost died having Gen needed emergency surgery after having her to remove my placenta. I had a retained placenta that released on only one side. A blood transfusion and DNC later I’m here still healing mentally but I’m here. Which brings me to my last little section. Since January Ive worked really hard to loose weight and to get back into shape in turn trying to get into a better poling weight to be safe on the equipment after all I’ve worked so damn hard on making my arm feel better what the hell is the point of hurting myself again!
So this brings me to today. Though I’m closer then ever to the weight limit I need to be and I have started doing a lot of training at home! And even bigger news on a whim i said screw it lets try out for Dangerous Curves!! I did I submitted a video after a month of being back and I GOT IN!! Since then Ive been pounding out the training it has to be the hardest thing I’ve done in a long time. Did a 5k with friend was running and training all spring long! We walked it mostly ran some and I brought miss gen with us! It was the color run and it was soo much fun! I love her so much! So here we are just under a month til my first competition I’m honored that I get to compete along side some amazing plus size polers! I’ve gotten some tremendous support from friends and family and yes I have crossed over to the dark side I now own not one but 3 pairs of Pleasers and I’m obsessed haha! I know I have a long way until where I want to be but I’m happy where I am and the blog is back. Ill be updating periodically about my journey to Dangerous Curves my thoughts on my successes and struggles as a plus size poler. I just want to help empower women who say no way i could do that or who think they would be shunned because they aren’t the thin girl on the pole. There’s a lot more to me then my heels, my pole and the number on my scale. So follow along and please feel free to comment on here about your struggles and success!
Without further a due my split progress!!
Lets take a moment to remember where I started haha!
And we have 2 years later!
In the words of Ru Paul ” If you don’t love yourself how the hell are you going to love yourself”!
Stay Fabulous and never give up!
