I planned to come here and tell you about much I suck at eating healthy sometimes, but then I went to Crossfit this morning and something kind of awesome happened.
Handstand push ups (HSPU) are one of those things that look relatively easy.
...until you actually try and do one.
I'd like to tell you I banged out a million HSPU's this morning, but I did not.
What I did do? Got my feet on the wall into the beginning position of a HSPU.
The thing with Crossfit, is that many of my 'issues' stem from emotional weakness - not physical.
Much like the box jump, HSPU's scare the bejesus out of me. But today, my awesome partner Christy just picked up my legs and threw them up in the air against the wall. It was scary, all the blood rushed to my head and I felt like I was going to die - but I got up there - TWICE.
The thing with HSPU's? I don't trust my shoulders to hold up my body weight. I'm not a skinny mini, so to expect my little twig arms to sustain my chubby self is setting the bar pretty high. I'll get there someday, but for now I'm just happy I quasi conquered my fear and actually did it.
Today kinda rocked, and for that, I am proud.
