I’ve been so wrapped up in day-to-day life that I’ve forgotten to focus on my goals for the year. It’s so important to understand what you want to achieve and how you’re going to achieve it. My goals for 2016 have mainly been about developing and working on myself and my hobbies, there is still 2 months left of this year and I intend to spend my time wisely and focus on achieving these goals.
Over the last few months I haven’t been going to pole lessons as much as I used to because my old studio shut down in June. After this I struggled to find a new studio that had lessons at times I could go to. My old instructor Alix opened her own studio not long ago and I’ve started going on a weekly basis to classes and I love being back with a tutor I admire. I’m learning new moves and ways to improve what I can already do. My aim is to keep going on a regular basis so I don’t loose the strength I’ve built up and the techniques I’ve learnt.
Last weekend I did my first pole photoshoot, it was both nerve-racking and exciting as I didn’t know what to expect. For the shoot I brought the cutest outfit, royal blue highwaisted hot pants paired with a sports bra with crossed strap back. Even though I felt like I didn’t have much strength on the day, it still went well and I managed to get some lovely photos that I can’t wait to see. This was a huge achievement for me as its something I’ve always wanted to do!
Eating healthy is always something I aim to do, although recently I’ve been off the wagon; eating chocolate and junk food. I’ve had to sit down and consider the reasons why I’ve been eating like this, it isn’t because it makes me feel good, actually its been doing the opposite and making me feel sluggish. Perhaps its stress or boredem? Whatever the reason I intent to snap myself out of this mood and eat healthy again.
Fitness is constant and continuous, when you get to a certain fitness point you don’t stop because you’ve reached your goals, you keep going and improve yourself further. Training has been high on my priority list over the last few months, I got a personal trainer and went to the gym atleast 5 times per week. Although, the last few weeks have not been filled with hard core training, more like sleeping in and having one too many chill out days. The most important thing is to not beat myself up about having a few “bad” weeks, instead I just need to pick up where I left off. From this week I’m getting back into my routine, so hello 5am wake up calls!
I’ve now been studying acting since November 2015 at the Actors Workshop Nottingham. Learning through different methods of teaching and tasks to further my skills. I’ve also been working with a Director to produce a series of comedy sketches, this has allowed me to gain an insight into filming. I have a long way to go in the acting world, I need to relax more while filming to ensure I’m giving a real performance rather than something that looks heavily rehearsed. This is something I intend to keep improving and will develop as I spend more time infront of the camera. My aim over the next few months is to get the 3 scripts I currently have on-going filmed and possibly another one before the year ends.
Writing on this little space of mine has become one of my favourite things to do, I spend hours brainstorming, taking photos and writing content for you lovely people to read. Over the next few months I want to work on creating new content, perhaps I should write more about my acting experiences or the pole photoshoot I did. Maybe even start doing “how to” guides, I’ll get my thinking hat on and come up with some great ideas.
