I can do a handstand!

...almost - Ok, I know that is random since I haven't been talking about exercise at all lately, but I bought this yoga book over a month ago and I love it! the book is full of pictures & explanations of how to do poses and then has a section where they layout a series (each takes about 15 minutes) that will help you achieve specific results, like toning, anxiety relief, improved memory, clearer skin, better orgasms, etc. One of my favorites is the set for confidence, it ends with a handstand and I have been trying to do it away from the wall for about a week now and I am almost there! I was so excited yesterday I squealed as soon as I was able to raise my feet together, and then of course, I promptly fell over.

I still claim success.

yesterday:
b. 1/2 donut
l. coffee+ leftover pasta
d. 2 beers

today:
b. adderall + V8
l. 1/2 quesadilla
d. stir fry veggie + rice

Hurrah!
I don't think I've ever done a handstand, not even as a child. The feeling of being upside down was always too freaky to me.

Woooot for doing a handstand!! I could never do those. I'll have to get that yoga book. In the yoga class I took a few years ago, I leaned how to fold myself in half. I couldn't unfold myself, tho...

When i read about you doing a handstand, it reminded me of the showtime series "The Big C". It's lovely! Promo on Youtube.
