I’ve been trying to find ways to be more active and since my aerial gym is only about four miles away, biking there seemed like an easy one. The only trouble was I didn’t actually own a bike. So I bought one!
I did this today!
(And a less lame post will come tomorrow once I’ve finished my semester.)
I was actually going to try to diversify my posting topics a bit, I swear, but then I had the best aerial day ever yesterday, and then another super good aerial day today, and I’m so excited that I just have to write about it. I’ll talk about something else another time.
So yesterday I passed my climb test, and then I did two inversion progressions on silks, and then I successfully pulled off a seahorse on trapeze. And today I got a push me, pull me on silks! All of these are things I have been trying and failing at, so it was incredibly vindicating to finally succeed.
But, since not everyone who reads this is as obsessed with aerial as I am, let’s talk about what those things actually are.
Today I was told that I’m good enough to start going to level 2 aerial silk classes!
I spend a lot of time on this blog talking about losing weight. And there’s a valid reason for that – I’ve put a lot of effort into losing weight, I feel great about the results, and it’s something that a lot of people are trying to do and/or struggling with.
But today I want to talk about something completely different. Today I want to talk about getting bigger, wider even, and why I am absolutely thrilled! Although no, it’s not about the size of my waist.
It’s about the size of my arms.
I did a whole, entire pull up all by myself for the first time ever in my entire life. I feel awesome.
I can feel my abs through the fat on my stomach, even when I’m not flexing.
That is all.
