I was really hard on myself today. I almost didn't take a video because I was being hyper critical and annoyed at how slow my progress has been with one foot spins. But!! I HAVE improved. So I try to keep that into perspective. My only competition right now is the me from yesterday. And I'm already better than her. So yay. • Two foot spin, then one foot spin, then whatever the hell that thing was. 🙄 • • • #progressnotperfection #practicemakesprogress #practicemakesperfect #diversifyice #adultfigureskater #figureskating #accountability #adultfigureskating #blackskaters #blackfigureskaters #waltzjump #jvnskates #teamcoachhamish #adultsskatetoo #adultskating #practice #progress

I'm really annoyed with myself because I feel stable in this spin, I'm just scared to pick up my foot. 🤦🏾‍♀️ at this rate, I'm going to get a sit spin before an upright spin. 🙃 • • • #progressnotperfection #practicemakesprogress #practicemakesperfect #diversifyice #adultfigureskater #figureskating #accountability #adultfigureskating #blackskaters #blackfigureskaters #waltzjump #jvnskates #teamcoachhamish #adultsskatetoo #adultskating #practice #progress

Just got back from an adult skating camp in Nashville and I am D E A D. Along with coming back from the afterlife, I can say with confidence that I'm a better skater than I was 3 days ago. Being a 4-month-old baby skater, this camp was extremely challenging for me. It was both a humbling and awesome experience that tested my body, my abilities, my *ego* (which was a big one ) and my mental fortitude. If absolutely nothing else stuck... I can say with certainty that embracing the journey was it (My "journey" was basically strapping myself to the front of a high speed train and just rolling with it, honestly ). Thank you to @sharp4sports for organizing this and thank you to EVERYONE at camp for making it a VERY memorable experience. While I can't wait to apply everything I've learned... I'm going to get reacquainted with my bed for the next 48hrs. • • • #progressnotperfection #practicemakesprogress #practicemakesperfect #diversifyice #adultfigureskater #figureskating #accountability #adultfigureskating #blackskaters #blackfigureskaters #waltzjump #jvnskates #teamcoachhamish #adultsskatetoo #adultskating #practice #progress

Who else binge-watched the latest season of Queer Eye this week? I've loved seeing @jvn 's figure skating progress on his IG the past few months, and it was heartwarming to watch him share that on the show with John and his daughter Lucy. The look on John's face when he introduced them to Michelle Kwan was priceless! Fun fact: I sat in the same row as her when I saw the Queer Eye panel at 92Y last year. Johnathan kept looking over and I was flattering myself thinking it was at me, but it was actually because she was just a few seats away and he was starstruck. My favorite thing about watching him learn ice skating is that he wasn't afraid to share with us when he was just beginning and struggling to learn the basics. It's the same with anything, including lettering - don't wait for it to be perfect to share, celebrate every step of your journey! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All of the words in this silhouette come from my cousin, who is a 16-year-old gold medalist figure skater. You can check out the print on Etsy! I'm thinking of making more calligraphy silhouettes like this one. I've already had requests to add a dancer, what else would you like to see? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @jvn @queereye #queereye #figureskating #iceskating #rothbyrnscreative #calligraphysilhouette #moderncalligraphy #jvnskates

Oh hush, that was really good!! 💗 Reposted from @zellybellie ( @get_regrann ) - I'm not sure what happened, but my spins suck now!! I may just focus on my spin form on my next practice day.

Guess who moved up a level in her skating today?? I am officially in level 6! One more level and I start learning pre-freestyle moves. My rinkmates and coach were both like "Are you ready for this?"

You will never catch either of us doing pairs or synchro, but we let this side-by-side waltz happen because we were feeling benevolent. (Ignore my arms. They're out of control.

Another video from yesterday: I generally enjoy 3turns, but I learned backwards 3turns on Saturday and they were absolutely terrifying. 😩 One day these will look better.

First waltz jump attempt is in the video from June 16th, second video was today. While it doesn't look like much of a difference, I can definitely feel it! Now if I can just push off before I jump, that would be great. 😅 • • • #progressnotperfection #diversifyice #adultfigureskater #figureskating #accountability #adultfigureskating #blackskaters #blackfigureskaters #waltzjump #jvnskates #teamcoachhamish #adultsskatetoo #adultskating

Here’s a bit of sloppy element connecting/an advancement of what I tried yesterday. Fwd cross-RO 3-bkwd cross-waltz jump. I was scared, but we made it happen. 😂 Maybe next time my waltz jump will look like a waltz jump and not whatever the hell THAT was. • • Shirt from @adornedbychi and Maccachin hat from @crunchyroll 💕 • • • #progressnotperfection #diversifyice #adultfigureskater #figureskating #accountability #adultfigureskating #blackskaters #blackfigureskaters #waltzjump #jvnskates #teamcoachhamish #adultsskatetoo #adultskating

I tried to go skating today. I showed up at the rink and then remembered that it was the 4th and they were closed today. 🙃 That means I won’t be able to skate again till I get back from Oregon in a week 😰. Will I even remember how?? • • I get a whole lot more revolutions on my two foot spins now! I tried a scratch spin and a back spin for the first time in these videos (It’s an old video ). Things are coming along! I still love this sport. : ) • • • #progressnotperfection #adultfigureskater #figureskating #accountability #adultfigureskating #blackskaters #blackfigureskaters #waltzjump #jvnskates #teamcoachhamish #adultsskatetoo #adultskating

I know you’re all probably tired of watching me spin, but it’s my second favorite thing about skating!! The first being edge work and turns, but it’s hard to film that when you’re by yourself. None of my rink mates were in today. 😭 In any case, this is a redo of that abomination I tried on Thursday. The exit still needs work. 😬 • • • #progressnotperfection #adultfigureskater #figureskating #accountability #adultfigureskating #blackskaters #blackfigureskaters #waltzjump #jvnskates #teamcoachhamish #adultsskatetoo #adultskating #jacksonultima #roadtofreeskate

After my 10.5 hours of skating last week and ALL of them while breaking in new skates, I felt that I was deserving of a couple of rest days because I’m really REALLY good at burning myself out. So here’s a two-day-old video of me practicing two foot spins on my #edeaspinner • • • #progressnotperfection #adultfigureskater #figureskating #accountability #adultfigureskating #blackskaters #blackfigureskaters #waltzjump #jvnskates #teamcoachhamish #adultsskatetoo #adultskating

As of 20 minutes ago, I have been on the ice for 4 and a half hours today. Update on these new skates: still can’t stop very well, but they feel good even though I have more breaking in to do.

Today’s practice was spent relearning how to do literally *everything* on new skates 😭. You know how that is. Hopefully in another session or two, I’ll be able to do stops again!! 🤦🏾‍♀️ • • I’m the meantime, I forgot to share that I wrote another little post for the @adultsskatetoo blog, so give that a read if you want.

The WiFi is out at my house and ya girl is booooored. I tried out both this spinner and like... Half a camel spin for the first time. I don’t hate either of them! 🤷🏾‍♀️ Maybe when I can figure out how to stay centered, I’ll actually enjoy it more. 😅 • • Which off ice exercises do you enjoy?

When the hockey guys at the pro shop compliment your skates unprompted, you know they look cool 😎. • • Because of my weight and previous ankle injuries, I got Jackson Premiers, which is a stiffer boot than my level typically requires, but it’s really comfortable and I feel secure in them. I also got Jackson Legacy 7 blades and I cannot wait to skate on them!! • • • #adultfigureskater #figureskating #jacksonultima #accountability #adultfigureskating #blackskaters #blackfigureskaters #waltzjump #jvnskates #teamcoachhamish #adultsskatetoo #adultskating #jacksonultimaskates #jacksonultimablades #jacksonultimafamily

Lesson from tonight’s practice: Chicken out 10 times, and then do the thing anyway... Day 2 of working on this. I took my little baby waltz walk (not quite a jump yet ) off the boards and onto the ice. Recording myself is SUCH a helpful tool for progress. I can now see that my arms aren’t doing what they’re supposed to be doing and I will practice my waltz jump on the ground about 50 more times before I attempt it on the ice again. • • • #adultfigureskater #figureskating #accountability #adultfigureskating #blackskaters #blackfigureskaters #waltzjump #jvnskates #teamcoachhamish #adultsskatetoo #adultskating #mariettaicecenter

Bonus post!! My two-foot spins felt really secure today with minimal traveling. I also increased by 2 WHOLE revolutions and I spun faster, but I have to work on my exits and balance so that I can move onto one-foot spins. Practice makes progress... And progress makes proficiency. 👌🏾 #PerfectionIsAMyth • • • #adultfigureskater #figureskating #accountability #adultfigureskating #centericearena #jvnskates #adultskating #twofootspin

I’m starting Learn To Skate this Saturday, so I’m making a practice journal for personal accountability purposes. I *should* be starting in Adult 4, but I don’t want to check off any skills till my coach tells me to.

Like Max said after this video... “It was nice! But then you got cocky and you just HAD TO LIFT THE FOOT.” 😂 I had a rough morning. I didn’t want to get out of bed or do anything. BUT! Then I remembered my rink mates and how yesterday I’d told them I’d see them on Sunday and I laced up and got out here. That smile at the end of that horrible attempt at a one-foot spin was genuine. Getting out here, seeing these people, and making myself mentally and physically healthier was worth getting out of bed today. I love this sport. • • • #adultfigureskater #figureskating #accountability #adultfigureskating #depression #centericearena #jvnskates #adultskating
