I just spent about an hour looking at dresses to wear to the tropical weddings that I’ll be attending in 2012… while wearing socks, sweatpants, my plush bathrobe backwards (who needs snuggies? Make your own!) and using the warmth of my laptop as heat. It’s that time of the year in NYC where it’s cold enough to wear a down jacket outside but you’re sort of in denial that it’s really winter and that the next few months of the year will just be miserable. I’ve only just switched all my clothing out of storage and brought my sweaters down, but I’m not happy about it. I love snuggling and layers and blankets, but I can’t stand being cold! At least I have the holidays in Florida to look forward to!
As the winter blahs approach, I thought it would be a good time to re-post a blog entry I wrote a while back, where there are a bunch of options listed for pole-friendly body moisture options. I know a lot of ladies swear by the Aveeno, but personally I’ve always been a big fan of the Olay in-shower lotion: you can slather it on in the morning shower, rinse it off, and because it’s so light and spreadable, it doesn’t take as much effort to as regular lotion. You just smear it and rinse it, no massaging or rubbing in needed.
Remember that as we approach sub-zero temps in the Northeast, that if you’re in a similar climate, you will need to spend more time than usual to warm up your pole and your body to avoid injury and frustration. Get that pole nice and sticky by putting a heater and humidifier in the pole room, if you can. Take a hot shower before you pole to get your skin warm and moist. If you are working on flexibility and stretching, same deal! And be careful in cold weather especially since muscles tend to be tighter and tenser.
