I’ve been on vacation this past week, and it was fantastic. There were times when I was frustrated or tired, but overall, it was just what I needed. Time spent lounging by the pool was the best. No obligations work, gym, school, etc., was fantastic.
I meant to take advantage of the fitness center while I was there, but that didn’t actually happen. I did do one thing that was an AMAZING workout. I took a pole fitness class. And let me tell you, it was way harder than I anticipated. I was sweating and was sore afterwards. And you know what? I effing loved it.
I know it seems scandalous to participate in such an activity, but it’s not just about taking off your clothes and sticking your crotch in someone’s face. It’s about being confident with yourself and pushing yourself. I will admit there were times when we were doing something and I would look at myself in the mirror and become self-conscious. All I would see is my fat roll through my tank top. Or how awkward I looked. Or how I couldn’t quite push myself fully into certain positions due to my size. But part of me felt good about myself as well.
My friends and I are taking some more pole fitness classes in the future. And I cannot wait.
