So, this inspired me to try a headstand. When I was little I was in gymnastics and would do handstands and headstands all the time. Since then I have let fear creep into (and sometimes flood) my life. I haven't tried a headstand in years. On my first try I flipped right over. I don't want to do it against the wall, because I know I would become dependent on it. On the second, third, and fourth tries I did it! It takes a LOT of core, and I did it! Doing a headstand totally gets me pumped up.
One of my long-term fitness goals is to be able to do a handstand push up (also called military press). I think I really need to work on my core and upper body strength before I can get there, but this is a start. I can do a headstand! Woohoo! I wanted to post a photo of my headstand, but I'm not sure how to work that. I'll have to see if I can get Margot or Tiffany to take a photo of me and then I'll post it up.
