Epsilonte Posted November 29, 2021 Report Share Posted November 29, 2021 Life is quite something right now. School is crazy busy (tons of classes and one exam per week, plus I'm still working as well), the whole country is in lockdown (well except schools. And ski lifts. Because of reasons), I doubt my pole studio will open again this year... So all I can do is hanging in there, trying to survive the crazyness and come out of it somewhat sane and healthy. xD I still have my 150 activity minutes per week challenge going, but it's hard if you can't go to the gym (and don't really enjoy running), so I'll tweak it a bit: I'll take half the minutes I spend (pole)dancing at home as my activity minutes for that week. Why half? Well my sessions usually look like "try some thing, fail, watch the video, try again, fail differently, watch the new video, try again, nail it (or not)", so about half the time is spent watching myself to hopefully improve. So I aim for 300 mins of pure dancing a week (mostly pole, maybe belly (my classes finish this week and I'm not yet sure if I want to book new ones since it's all so busy now, I'll probably do one regular class and single units of another one, I think), maybe even finally some shuffling? ), which are about 4-5 sessions a week. That's quite a lot, but I need it as study break to keep myself sane. ETA: I decided to change the challenge. No more counting minutes, no more "have to do" x sessions a week. I'll jump on the pole when I feel like it (e.g. for the online classes) and have time for it. If it's just 5 minutes of bodywaves - fine. If it turns into a 2 hour tricks session - also fine. Also I recently remembered that I used to wear all kinds of weird and fun clothes while poledancing at home - skirts, dresses, costumes, sometimes fancy lingerie. I want to start doing this again. Bring some fun and spice back into our relationship after over 8 years of being married to the chrome. Maybe even treat myself to a new cool pole outfit for christmas or something. Just: making it fun again. No pressure, just dancey dance. Other than that... same as usual, I try to eat a lot of veggies and I try to sleep enough and that's it because I don't have any spoons for more right now. 4 1 Quote Challenges: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12, 13, 14, 15 Link to comment
