Leida, I started practicing against a wall at first. It took me a few days to get adjusted to being upside down (read: headaches) but that subsided, unless I do it in the morning! Now I can hold my handstands for a good 60 seconds or so. Usually my wrists are the first to give out, so I'm gonna try them on some dumbbells instead. I still use the wall but can tap away from it for 15-25 seconds now. It's so fun to progress!!
Where did you hear the OH was sensitive? Interesting... Regardless of whether I do it though, I still wake up starving. It's a hunger I don't get in the middle of the day. It's like a deep, burning and nagging feeling that I REALLY cannot shake no matter how much I try to ignore it. It's inconvenient when I want to fast or don't want to cook or whatever in the morning. It's like, REALLY? Agaaaain?! I woke up in that condition this morning at 6am. I slept well, about 8 hours, and don't feel stressed or anything. I just don't get it and can't find any answers on it.
Should be "deload" this week, but am thinking maybe not... ;-) Oh -- and congrats on your BP weight! I don't even try with the BP!
