I spend a lot of time watching pole dancing videos and shopping for booty shorts. These are my stories.
So I’ve gained even more weight than I last exasperatedly reported, and I’m at least 25lbs heavier than my weight last year. Alas. I’m not really in a place to get back to pole yet and in a general life rut, which may include an involuntary employment change. (Yeah, I guess you can read into that.) Even if it doesn’t come to that, it’s a stressful time and I’ve found that I’ve slowly but surely fallen out of every good routine I’ve ever held from laundry to taekwondo to…breakfast. Anyway, the point of this post wasn’t a wallowfest. Oops.
In comes my resolution to change this! Because even though fitness is going to take a back seat to the work and life figuring out thing, if it does come to not being employed in a month, I’d rather the slope of my physical state to be at least level and not a rapid downhill. ‘Cuz I’m gonna need some semblance of self confidence to either keep my job or get a new one.
YATTA! I have been periodically (once a week at most?) been doing various workouts, which I guess I can retroactively blog about in the meantime!
* - yes I know that yoga is a worthwhile workout if done right and taken for what it is. but like I said I was more badass back then and holding warrior pose for however long seemed like not a workout over some hellish stance drills we’d do at TKD.
Poled a bit last night. It’s really hard to get motivated to work your way back up to moves you used to do as a warmup. Proper fan kicks never seemed so taxing. Good to feel sore today though. I think I need to plan a beach trip to get motivated. I was 20lbs lighter this time last year! Hmm. Realistically, the goal should be a beach trip next year…
These are all reasonable to me unfortunately. Looking forward to warmer weather…not because of running (I like it 50 degrees or colder =P) but so the pole doesn’t take so dang long to warm up and my skin isn’t as dry ‘cuz the few times I have poled my legs couldn’t grip no matter how hard I tried.
Also I try to walk to a different metro station (for Ingress farming) in the morning…walking a mile when I wouldn’t have otherwise has got to count for something. Right?? Or is losing running down the 195 foot escalator another hit?
