One more and then back to work

Tai chi went ok last night. Ended up with a sore back and feet from standing on a hard floor for a full hour but I did better than my buddy Lena who didn't heed my warning that it's harder than it looks and she kept having to go over and try to stretch out her calves and such. It'll get easier as I continue to get more mobile in general but I think next time (classes pick up again Oct 8 due to Jewish holidays), I'll try wearing my slippers that have arch supports and a rubber sole rather than my regular sneakers. I don't seem to have any residual effects after resting last night so that's progress. On Sunday, Emily and I walked the street fair and my lower back was ticked off but ice, rest and alternating bellydance glute clenches helped there too.

I continue to collect middle-aged Instagram men followers (which no, I don't follow back). The new batch have shirtless pictures. Um...naw guys, I'm good. Really. Go have fun doing whatever it is that you're trying to do.

It's tropical outside. No, literally remnants of Florence, 77 and 90% humidity. So naturally my coworker has her window open so that we can get the full swampy rainforest feeling. Good times, good times.

It will definitely get easier :) My first few days in karate whooped my ass like you wouldn't believe--and I was 14! Barely even a smoker yet lmao. I hope the slippers help!

EW @ your new followers. Shoo. Go away!

Wow that does sound tropical. I hope the Tai Chi helps. Shirtless guys, huh? Interesting...

I need to get into Tai-Chi. Would probably help lessen my stress!
