TGIF

It's a quick day for me because we are having our company holiday party at lunch today and then we are done for the day.  Woohoo!

I got my butt up for CrossFit this morning.  AFTER the workout (which involved Presses and Back Squats), we ended with 5 minutes of handstands.  That's not doing handstands up and down for 5 minutes.  That is being in a handstand for 5 minutes over however long it takes you to get it done.  Oh...and every time you came down, you had to do 10 sit ups.  I think I ended up with about 140-150 sit ups.  I held my first handstand for 45 seconds, but then they just kept getting shorter and shorter.

I was glad though because every time I kicked up into a handstand, I stayed there.  Before each one (especially at the end!) my arms were shaking and I was so worried they would buckle and I would fall.  But they held me every single time.

Tonight is a holiday party with some of my friends from Jazzercise!  I have a feeling it was really good to get up for CF this morning.  :)

Have a great weekend everyone and hugs to you!

So proud of you Hero! 5 total minutes of handstand sounds like an AMAZING accomplishment. I totally get the idea that with your arms starting to shake you may have been worried about falling. Think about how strong your arms have gotten. I am incredibly proud of you!

I'm pretty sure I couldn't even do ONE hand stand for 30 seconds, so you are definitely my exercise hero!
You amaze me every day.

NEVER in my entire life have i been able to do a handstand... you've inspired me to put that as one of my NSV goals! :)

Great progress! I think you look fabulous. I'm super impressed with your ability to get up in the morning for cross training and do 5 minutes of handstands! Exercise is my least favorite thing to do. Thanks for sharing:)

How did you do at the party? By the way, how do you do a handstand? :)
