Because I got laid off and my unemployment benefits are looking to be less than half my usual paychecks I can no longer afford to take pole classes. The studio has wonderful prices, they are an absolute steal, I just can't even make that now. ... Read more

Sad day yesterday. My whole team was laid off. This was my first paid acting job and it had been around a looong time. Some of the team members have been there since day one. We were all feeling like something was going to happen, but when we go... Read more

Last week I was urged to join the pole level 2 classes. I was a little hesitant but ready for the challenge. I feel a little awkward in that I can't do the splits like a lot of people in the level 1 classes.My flexibility in my legs has improved... Read more

So far I've had 8 pole dance classes and I am completely in love. I am surprised at how quickly I am progessing! I thought for sure I would not be able to do some things for months only to get them the next class! So I've been telling people who... Read more

One by one I poked holes in all my plans to leave the house today...and I think that was for the best. Instead of going to a movie that I was on the fence about going to I stayed in and listened to the football game on the radio. Then, when I wa... Read more

I don't think I've ever really written a blog about being in "maintenance mode". I went to my first Spark Live meeting today and it really got me thinking about what it's like to be in maintenance. It's been about 2 years for me now and I've had... Read more

Argh! I took my measurements today and it's been a couple months since I last took them. I'm not gaining inches where I think I should be -- like in my legs and arms -- despite some weightlifting and running. Frankly, I'm concerned I'm not getti... Read more

So far so good! I've made it through week 2 day 2 of C25K and all the not so great weather has been falling on my scheduled off days. Phew! It's getting hot in the afternoons now. In another month or so I'll probably have to switch my run ... Read more
