I’m not sure if it was the handstands in CrossFit or the handstand excitement of getting new FitGear, but I sure have had handstand fever this past week! Last night we went to dinner at our friends’ house (DiAndy). After dinner, the boys went to watch tv while the girls and I tried to conduct our own photoshoot. We started with trying to take our own self-portrait.
While we all agreed that this was not an awesome picture, we decided to do something more fun. What could we do? I had the grand idea of showing off our strength and do handstands against the wall. We even got Brandon to join the fun.
Diana’s not pictured because she is still working on her upper body strength. We tried to have Jessica hold her up… Then Jessica and Brandon tried… Then, when that didn’t work, she took matters in her own hands (errrr… on her head)…
Whatever works! She got up and stayed! (Nevermind the fact she used the dog bed that was over ten years old and quite possibly has never been washed.) Next, we decided to get really fancy with our handstands. We made several attempts for all the girls to do handstands (or headstands) against the wall simultaneously.
When that didn’t work, we took the action to the basement where we had more room and carpet. Jessica and I devised a plan where we would both do handstands up against each other. Brandon would facilitate the process matching our legs and feet together and then step out of the way for the actual photo to be shot. Seriously, what were we thinking? Who did we think we were? And how old are we?
Clearly, it didn’t work, but we sure had fun and no one got hurt (a couple of bruises and popping elbows don’t count). We’ll continue to work on our fitness and balance for our next
photoshoot dinner party.
I think we all get high-fives for doing/attempting headstands on a Thurday night! Speaking of high-fives, let’s talk some High Five Friday with the Megster!
I’m giving myself a high-five for continuing RW Run Streak! That’s right – I’m still doing it! This means I’ve run a mile or more each day since Memorial Day! I’m not sure how long it’ll last, but I figure I’ll go for as long as I can. Itz a fun streak!
Can YOU do a handstand? What do you and your friends do at dinner parties?
