When you live the cash life money seems to flow out of your pockets as quickly as it goes in. Keeping track of how much you make and being able to budget when your income constantly changes is a challenge.
July’s Fit Showgirl Spotlight is Burlesque and Body-building badass Voodoo Onyx. My first encounter with Voodoo was back in 2011, the year we both hit the New York Burlesque Scene. I’ve known since the inception of this blog that I wanted to spotlight her talent, dedication and commitment to her art and to fitness.
Now that I’m working a more full-time schedule as a trainer, I’m dancing less in the club and picking up more gigs after a bit of a break from burlesque. I work in three industries that center around the body in some way. Because of this I’ve been thinking a lot about body image over the past couple months. But mostly, the drastically different ways both burlesque and stripping have impacted my body image.
I’ve been thinking about kids a lot lately. Maybe it’s the binge watching of Jane the Virgin I’ve been doing on Netflix. Or the influx of kids out playing on the sidewalks this weekend now that the temperatures in New York have hit the 90’s. But I know the underlying reason is it’s the biggest issue my boyfriend and I seem to butt heads on.
After a hiatus far too long, the Fit Showgirl Spotlight is back! My intention for the Fit Showgirl Spotlight has always been to showcase people of varying performance modalities and fitness styles. So it is with great excitement that I introduce the Fit Showgirl Spotlight return with Carolyn Chiu.
What we eat and how we feel are directly related. Think about the last time you ate that extra serving of desert, devoured the snack table at a party or had those 4am drunken Cheetos. How did you feel the next day? I’m guessing not so great.
If you’ve noticed there hasn’t been a blog post in well over almost two months, I apologize for the disappearance. It was for a good reason though as a lot has happened in the past 60 days.
