Last winter, I was at Intermediate level and looked pretty bulky as my muscles were building. At that time, my body had only started to recognised that it was just 6 months of exercise, twice a week of one-hour pole dance classes which meant a lot then. As a result, I became chunky.
This winter at Advanced 2, I am able to control my eating habits yet not over indulge in food. I have a healthier diet with a lot of fibre to start in the day; cereals, cereal bar or Weetbix with soy milk. Every meal has both vegetables and meat to balance the nutrients required in my body.
I am currently training up for Pole Divas’ Unleashed Amateur Pole Dancing Competition on 17 June 2011, I hope I make it through the tryouts on 5 June 2011 with my pole partner, Jen as we’ll be in the doubles category.
Getting fitter, yes I am and I have to persevere. There are still a lot of pole tricks I still cannot do and it really frustrates me. Then there is the fine balance of not pushing myself too hard and overdoing things.
