At work with no warm up

Today, I got up a little to late and wasn’t able to get much of a warm up. I feel ok though. Work so far has been fine. My chops feel pretty decent.

After lunch, as usual, my chops feel wobbly and unstable. I don’t think it’s because I’m tired. I didn’t play that much. I only put the horn down for an hour…I get this feeling all the time.

It kind of feels like my jaw is open too wide. I end up feeling like I’m swimming around. Especially, in the middle register. Around E and D feels the “swimmiest.”

What to do before rehearsal starts to combat this “post-lunch chops”?
