Yes! That's the place! Thanks for repeating it for me.Originally Posted by "Bytsi":2t0dvvcp
I'm sorry to hear this. This seems to happen to me a LOT (maybe it's me ), leading me to believe that true friendship is a rarity and only found in two to three people over a lifetime. (Sorry to sound so cynical.) But yay for you new potential friend!Originally Posted by "Bytsi":28lj3nec
I tend to agree with this. And, I also know how you feel, Bytsi. Sorry.Originally Posted by "tbrown1025":2myyacay

I guess once I decided to cut those kind of people out of my life, I didn't acknowledge that more of them could still sneak in... *sigh*

Thanks, Jane. True friends are rare, and the older I get the more I realize what amazing treasures they are.

Yoga 75 today... nowhere near as sore as I was after last week's squatting, even though I did slightly (1 rep, lol) more. LOVING the belt so far.
Last band practice tonight before our show on Sunday
Sorry to read about your friend woes Bytsi. I also agree with Tasha and Jane ... we only have a couple true friends in our lifetime. It's a sad fact I think.

Glad to see the belt is working for you.
Kinda sad that the friend situation is like that. Holds true for me, too.
Bought one of these recently for the first time....yowza! DH ended up with bruises all over his thighs after using it for the first few times. He's got skinny little runner's legs so maybe that's why. I, on the other hand, apparantly have enough padding on the thighs that I did not bruise :tongue (but was almost on the verge of tears!).Originally Posted by "Bytsi":10o5k3rr

Thanks... I actually just agreed to do a pretty big favor for this person (ugh), but at least I now see her for what she is, and I'm doing it because I was too nice to lie and say I couldn't... but my eyes are at least wide open this time.

Thanks, and yeah... quality > quantity, right?

Oh yeah, my inner thigh seemed to bruise a lot at first
They do hurt though... but it hurts so good!!!

Yoga 75. New studio today, as my regular place is closed for THREE whole days for a big workshop they're hosting. Normally, they're open 364 days/year, so... yikes!
New place is very similar style-wise, still hot power yoga. But the floor is padded and that makes it harder to balance, and there are no windows (I missed having those). Also we don't line up neatly in rows on our mats there - just randomly scattered, which I'm not used to at all!
At the end of class, the teacher did something I've never heard of in yoga before - she put some oil on my shoulders (on everyone's shoulders) - it was a menthol-ish icy-hot thing I guess, because after a minute it BURNED. I wiped it off - couldn't tell if it was supposed to feel that way or if the skin was sizzling off my shoulders. When I left, there wasn't a mark at all, not even slightly red, so I guess it's supposed to burn......???
Will probably go again tomorrow, since I HATE not keeping to my regular schedule
One of my favorite yoga instructors used to come around and put a bit of lavender oil on our foreheads during savasana, not only did it feel indulgent, but the scent was so relaxing! I am not thinking that Tiger Balm would have the same effect.
Has DS stopped talking non stop about his trip yet (as I imagine he did?)
DS is still wearing tshirts he got in Israel 24/7, and missing his adventures...Originally Posted by "no mouse no more":1kwck2va
Went to that same studio yesterday and she did the oil again but it was a bit better since I expected it and knew it wasn't really peeling my skin off . Yoga 75 Saturday...
Planning some treadmill time today BUT not overdoing it because.....
OUR SHOW IS TODAY!!!!!! 3-4 at the Blue Rock (if anyone local wants to stop by). Hoping to get a video or something to share if my hands aren't shaking too badly
Have sooo much fun at your show this afternoon!!!!!! Break a leg, friend!!!
Have fun at the showwwwwwwwwww!
Hope the show was a blast!!! (I'm with Caren... at the place where I go, they use lavendar oil. Loved that. The other stuff....? Probably not so much!)

Thanks guys - quick check-in here, gotta start on the videos! We played 15 songs, in about 90 minutes (and they would've let us play longer but we hadn't really been prepared and one guy had to leave). It was a full, packed house - what fun! We also got nearly $200 in tips - my first time earning $ for playing a gig
Here's a photo from my friend's phone - will post videos if any turned out well... I was aware of mistakes in nearly every song, but not everyone was paying as close attention to my fiddling
They are correct to put you smack dab in the middle of the stage! You look great and I am so glad to hear you had fun. I look forward to your videos.
Is that a red violin you're playing?
i was going to ask this too - i love it! and you look great, too!Originally Posted by "stingo":35p9mcoi
depends on the teacher at my studio, but they dot a few drops of eucalyptus oil on your hands before the class to do what you wish with (rub into hands, temples, etc)... some teachers instead will put the icy-hot menthol stuff on your shoulders. i don't think it actually does anything but it feels kind of cool, especially if it's a hot class with overhead fans on! and at the end they spray a lavender mist over you while you lie in savasana. now that i'm talking about all this, MAN do i need to get back to yoga!
