*Warning this post contains triggering content*
As you may have gathered from the title and trigger warning, this post isn’t about fitness. It’s about Self-Injury. When I discovered March 1st is Self-Injury Awareness Day, I knew this was a post I wanted/needed to write. I am or I maybe I should say I was a Self-Injurer for a large part of my adolescence and even into my adult years.
Most of us at one time or another have fallen off the wagon of our exercise routine. One simple event, for example breaking your toe dancing to damn hard at BurlyCon, can keep you from working out. Who even breaks their toe dancing? Oh, yeah. Me.
Being a traveling showgirl is something that most of us in the burlesque world strive to do. But, once you start hitting the road maintaining a healthy diet and keeping active can become a challenge. The more you travel the more struggles you will encounter.
