I have not written in awhile. I honestly had not been poling much at all. I chalked it up to all sorts of things but after taking a minute I have figured out I was out of whack. I am thinking I am...more
It doesn't look like I'll ever get passed the first two months of pole at this rate. I feel like a broken record at this point, I stick with pole for a few months then something happens and I'm back...more
What a difference one month can make. How much change can happen in one month.
This past month, I have been the most depressed I have ever been in the last 13 years. The last time I was this bad, I...more
I started off by doing the basic warm up. Then I did.
-10 knee tucks on each side
-practiced the Cross Steps
-practiced the Step Around
-practiced the Extended Leg Spin. I struggled with my left...more
Since today is an easy day, I'm just going to practice walking in my new heels because I have a hard time performing tricks in them. I'm not sure if it's the carpet or the fact that they are new to...more
I apologize for blowing up the feed with my blogs. This workout is definitely helping me get stronger. I'm not only sore in my calves, but also glutes and thighs today. My upper body is fairly weaker...more
Sore calves! That's all I have to say about yesterday. It's been a while since I have worked those puppies out. I will complete today's lower body exercises and maybe do some pole work today as well....more
Today, my obliques are sore from the core exercises but I'm still feeling great! I plan on doing some stretching and working on some choreo so that they can be post worthy.
Calf Raises: 2 sets of...more
I know I should be keeping better track of my progress in my blog, but I have been recording some choreo I have put together. I should be uploading that soon. For the most part the exercises are...more
I have been poling for almost a year now and since I moved away from Florida, I cannot find a decent studio in my area. The one pole studio in town is not very organized and does not focus on safety....more
So I've been thinking about my lack of progress in... pretty much every avenue of my hobby list. The only one I haven't totally sucked at progressing at is running. And, I thought that warranted a...more
I've been staring at a blank page for several minutes figuring out where I even want to start with my fangirling of Pole Parlour. So many new heroes. So many more I want to look up and research. I'm...more
After having been off the pole for such a long time, finally getting back into a groove was very frustrating but once I got past the 2-3 week mark of poling steadily, I found that everything started...more
I was going to write this as a status, but realized it was going to be too long. So, instead, a positive and happy blog post!
I am finally feeling healthy again after my 3 weeks of illness, and I'm...more
I've cleaned up the spare room, set it all up, and organized it! Yay!
I even added a few tiny things as decoration- nothing much, and I'll likely add some more later (I'm tempted to put up the pages...more
I'm doing much better these days... despite having had the flu for about 5 days now! It's finally getting to the point where I can stay awake for more than 5 hours, my stomach isn't constantly a...more
(For reference, the title is because I couldn't think of anything to title this blog... and I do actually hate coming up with titles)
It's not been a good week for me.
Building on last blog, the...more
Well, I'm pretty depressed these days... I think I've been mildly depressed for a while, but it's just much worse now, and I'm finally taking steps to correct the problem.
There has been a lot of...more
Today marks the one year anniversary of finally standing up for myself. I absolutely refused to work with a man who sexually harassed me just so my boss and his assistant could get drunk together for...more
I'm not sure If this topic has been brought up before but I wanted to share my thoughts on it (whether or not they are of value).
A while back, I never knew the benefits of meditating and I didn't...more
I put up a couple of status updates about my shoulder, but I wanted to write a more detailed blog post about it.
So, my friend is an RMT (Registered Massage Therapist), but she's only certified in...more
You know, one time I wrote a silly little blog on here, half-serious, w/out a single serious insult to anyone. It was entitled "Foot-Nazis". Well, I used the word "Nazi" and that was just devastating...more
It has taken years to get back on my feet and poling regularly since my daughter was born. For awhile, I had to disassemble a king size bed, assemble my X-Stage, dance, disassemble, and reassemble the...more
So, yesterday sucked. I'm sure you can tell by the blog post.
However, today is much, much better. The hormones have calmed, and so I am calm again. I spent some time last night writing things down,...more
"8. Hawkgirl and [33barbwire]: Hawkgirl is many, many things (the lady has past lives, so she can cover a lot of ground) but she can always be described as mighty. She will charge into battle without...more
So, I was struck down with bronchitis for like, 10 days. It sucked a lot. I reached "maximum pathetic," as I called it, and my boyfriend did a great job taking care of me.
However, it always strikes...more
So I have been poling off and on for quite some time now. For years I have struggled with my grip. I orginally had a 50mm chrome pole and I managed to nail tricks. But there is always intermission in...more
So, I'm stuck at home doing more-or-less nothing because I have a wicked migraine. I missed work. My boss was not nice about it. Frustrated though I am about it... it doesn't help the boredom! I am so...more
As I sit here in Ontonagon, Michigan at our vacation home I find myself missing my pole. It is at home which is 1,000 away. So, I am sitting and catching up on all the posts here. I am also thinking...more
