this is how one flosses September 2, 2012
And now I’m settled in Houston for a month. I’ve decided to make this month a transition period between my wild, bouldering-packed summer, and the coming fall season of excitement. The gym is an hour away with no traffic, so I’ve decided to just not go at all.
I’m committing to a long rest from pulling, and a daily indulgence into my other interests. I’ve been and plan to be doing lots of reading, a new Pilates education chapter, a large-type yoga commitment, some looming sewing projects, and lots of family visits and facetime sessions. I’m also doing thing where every day I wear a dress, light makeup and impractical shoes in public. Because it’s Houston, and everyone at the grocery store is well dressed and “done”. It’s funny how an hour talking to my sisters or being in Houston completely resets my day to day fashion compass.
I’ve got lots of pictures and videos from the summer to go through and I’m stoked to share some of my favorite moments. I think I’ll start a new post now, like right now, to get that going.

My big Pilates exam is tomorrow – 6 hours of exercising, teaching, filling in bubbles, then exercising again and I get graded on all of it. I am not a good long-run preparer. I do much better in fits and starts, and that’s how I’ve prepared for this one. I know the moves, I know how to teach them, I mostly know probably almost part of half the anatomy, and I better have an “on” day at the barn tomorrow.
Thanks to everyone who came out for practice teaching! I got to train guys, girls, a range of ages, people who are crazy fit, and folks who aren’t so obsessive. I even got to train my dad at a Houston studio, which was so much fun! He had lots of good advice and I’ve never shown him what I’m learning in that way before.
Ok gotta get to bed! Going to post up for an hour in the morning at the new, ever roving Cafe Mundi trailer, recently roved very close by, and try to remember what abduction is.
