The Running Checklist

As you’ll discover after a few posts, I’m good at creating carefully crafted checklists and systems, and better at disregarding the entire system and getting back to chaos. :D 

Not so during the final mile project. So here’s a checklist that will (hopefully) make it slightly easier for dragging that ass out of the house and onto the track. 

The Night Before

  1. Select which phone you’ll be taking with you for the run. Hook it to the charger IMMEDIATELY before you forget.
  2. Make sure that the phone has the running tracker that you prefer to use and that you are logged in, etc. My Current favourite is Nike+Run club. There is just something about the interface that is so motivating, and the option to sync keeps you updated across multiple devices.
  3. Select the playlist you’ll be listening to. Ensure it’s availabe offline on your device. Nothing is more irritating than network issues interrupting your upbeat music in the middle of a great run.
  4. Lay out your workout clothes and accessories.
    1. Pants and t-shirt
    2. Sports Bra
    3. socks
    4. running shoes
    5. earphones (personal choice, I personally can’t workout without high tempo music blaring in my ears)
    6. handkerchief or small towel (very important if you, like me, sweat like a pig)7. hair ties
    7. Keep a bottle of water and some light snack by the bedside table
  5. SLEEP WELL

Morning of the Run

  1. When you hear the alarm, count 5-4-3-2-1 in your mind, throw the covers off, then get off the bed
  2. Drink half a bottle of water at least. Eat the light snack(like a handful of almonds, or a fruit)
  3. Freshen up, wash your face, brush your teeth
  4. Change into your workout clothes. Wear the shoes. Tie your hair.
  5. Grab your phone and earphones
  6. Take other essentials like your mess card, ID card, bare necessary money, keys, energy drink, etc. Make sure you have a place to store all that safely during the run.
  7. Apply Sunscreen. I can’t emphasize this enough
  8. Do your daily stretching/squat challenge/plank challenge, etc
  9. Get the fuck out before your brain gets the chance to sabotage eveyrthing

After the Run

  1. Log in to the tracking app.
  2. Drink water. Then your predetermined protein shake/energy drink/refreshing drink (if you have one)
  3. Have a hearty breakfast. Fill your plate so much that it embarrasses even the toughest of body builders.
  4. Wash face with cool water. Apply aloe vera gel to cool down any summer burns or heat rashes. (I have hypersensitive skin)
  5. IMMEDIATELY take a bath and get dressed really well down to your shoes and get on with killing the rest of your goals like the BADASS BOSS BITCH that you are! Do not, I repeat, DO NOT crawl back into bed or go on YouTube or Pinterest for that one minute of reward. You have better rewards waiting for you. Like the sound of scratching off items from your to-do list or the smell of you getting nearer to your life goals!
  6. SMILE cause you made it!! :)

Of course, this list is written keeping someone in mind who’s going for an early morning outdoor run. The list will have to be modified according to your own time and place. But it pretty much covers it all for most.

Happy Running!! :)

Note: I will keep updating this list as I continue making progress on my runs. The more runs I go for, the more challenges I will face, the more solutions I’ll learn to overcome them, the more I’ll share.

So in celebration of WestAllen’s first Valentine’s Day as a couple (and an actual Valentine’s mention in 3x14 and hopefully more cute WA goodness) I say we throw a 🎉party 🎉on Tuesday, Feb 28th.

Here are some WestAllen Signature (Non-Alcoholic) Cocktails inspired by their romance. (I plan on making an Electric Love - with the tequila tho 😉)

I also added some appetizer suggestions: macaroni and cheese bites, pizza bites and, of course, brownies for dessert.

Feel free to add items and remember there is a twitter trend starting at 6 PM Eastern: Westallen Is The Future.

So make a drink, make an app, help to trend and then sit back and watch our WA cuties 😍.

POCKET-SIZED FEMINISM

The only other girl at the party
is ranting about feminism. The audience:
a sea of rape jokes and snapbacks
and styrofoam cups and me. They gawk
at her mouth like it is a drain
clogged with too many opinions.
I shoot her an empathetic glance
and say nothing. This house is for
wallpaper women. What good
is wallpaper that speaks?
I want to stand up, but if I do,
whose coffee table silence
will these boys rest their feet on?
I want to stand up, but if I do,
what if someone takes my spot?
I want to stand up, but if I do,
what if everyone notices I’ve been
sitting this whole time? I am guilty
of keeping my feminism in my pocket
until it is convenient not to, like at poetry
slams or my women’s studies class.
There are days I want people to like me
more than I want to change the world.
There are days I forget we had to invent
nail polish to change color in drugged
drinks and apps to virtually walk us home
at night and mace disguised as lipstick.
Once, I told a boy I was powerful
and he told me to mind my own business.
Once, a boy accused me of practicing
misandry. You think you can take
over the world?
And I said No,
I just want to see it.
I just need
to know it is there for someone.
Once, my dad informed me sexism
is dead and reminded me to always
carry pepper spray in the same breath.
We accept this state of constant fear
as just another part of being a girl.
We text each other when we get home
safe and it does not occur to us that our
guy friends do not have to do the same.
You could saw a woman in half
and it would be called a magic trick.
That’s why you invited us here,
isn’t it? Because there is no show
without a beautiful assistant?
We are surrounded by boys who hang up
our naked posters and fantasize
about choking us and watch movies
we get murdered in. We are the daughters
of men who warned us about the news
and the missing girls on the milk carton
and the sharp edge of the world.
They begged us to be careful. To be safe.
Then told our brothers to go out and play.

  • forest (android) / focusnow (ios)
    these are really famous in the community and it’s probably because they’re so great. not only do they prevent you from checking your phone constantly while studying, they also serve as a pomodoro timer + you plant cute little plants for every session! if you do check your phone you get guilt tripped because your plant dies, so you probably won’t do it

  • coffitivity (android) / (ios)
    if you like background noise while you’re studying this app is great because it recreates the ambient sounds of a coffee shop, which research says that boosts your creativity!

  • rainy (android)
    another background sounds app but this one lets you mix from a lot of different sounds to find the combination that relaxes you the most!

  • memrise (android) / (ios)
    my fave language learning app so far! you have a lot of different courses to pick from, it lets you set a daily goal, earn badges for your achievements + pick between different types of review sessions

  • fabulous (android)
    this app is one of my favorites. it’s a great “coaching” app to help you “ increase your energy, feel vibrant health, lose weight + sleep better by instilling healthy habits and routines in your life” (i couldn’t have explained it better than the playstore description). you can choose from different long term goals such as feeling more energized or sleeping better, it will suggest new habits + help you stick to them!

  • water drink reminder (android) / waterlogged (ios)
    i suck at drinking water so this app has helped me a lot reach my daily water goals! i don’t know about the ios option i linked, but the android app is really effective for me + it’s the best one i’ve tried

  • vsco (android) / (ios)
    my fave photo editing app so far, i use it on my instagram (shameless self promotion oops) + i love all the options it has!

  • elevate (android) / (ios)
    this is a brain training app that helps you improve cognitive skills such as focus or processing speed with cool games + a personalized training progam to get the best results! improving these skills is proven to boost your productivity, confidence and so on

i hope you find any of these apps useful because they’ve been really helpful to me!

IBM Watson for mixologists

Don’t you just love it when a bartender knows what you want before you do? That’s what’s in store for those at SXSW right now. On Friday, IBM unveiled a Cognitive Cocktail Bar where bartenders use Watson’s cognitive capabilities to create the perfect drink for guests. How? First, Watson learns about bar patrons from data stored in their wristbands – info such as conference activity, personal preferences, interests and social media accounts. Then Watson analyzes this data to recommend a bespoke cocktail concoction. With Watson’s help, maybe some day every bar will know your name.

Not at SXSW? You can still experience your own cognitive drink concoctions through the IBM Watson Twist app.

New food rules

I want to be skinny for Daddy. I’m already little but Daddy likes girls that are so little he can throw them around with one hand. I want to be a good little girl for Daddy. So Daddy is going to help me get skinny for him.

We’ve dabbled with food control before but we’re trying something new this time. Before I had to ask permission for every food but that got annoying for Daddy and tedious for me. So this time we’re going to keep it more simple.

Rules:

  1. Babygirl will weigh every morning and report her weight to Daddy and log it on her app.
  2. Babygirl will eat a maximum of 1400 and a minimum of 1200 calories per day.
  3. Babygirl will drink at least 64 oz of fluids per day, and if she gets to the end of the day without drinking that she must make up the difference before bed.
  4. Babygirl will log everything she eats and drinks on her app and keep track of calories, and will report what food she eats and total calories to Daddy at the end of the day.
  5. Babygirl can decide what to eat during the day except she has to ask permission for some foods:
  • All sweets except for plain tart frozen yogurt.
  • Most fried foods (chips, french fries, onion rings). Entres like fried chicken sandwich and orange chicken are ok. 

(disclaimer)

You know, I never could figure out how Cas could drink (and enjoy) Coffee…. And then say food tastes like molecules….

TalesFromYourServer: Got a meal comped for the first time in my life

Not a server but a long time lurker, this is the story of how I got stuff for free from a restaurant (only time this ever happened in my life) that I will make it my mission to return to.

It was my 26th birthday and I met up with my friend at this restaurant where we got Yard long beers and then were joined by 3 other friends. Ordered even more drinks, split an app and then ordered our entrees.

Everyone else was served and by the time they finished, my meal came out about 15-20 minutes after theirs did. I did not compain to anybody but I did make jokes about how my meal was the only one late when we were there to celebrate my birthday. Lo and Behold the Owner comes to our table and apologizes that my food came out late, that everybody should be eating together at the same time when they go out to eat and tells me that it’s free! Then I got a free dessert because it was my birthday. Everyone Else tipped 30%, I had a free birthday meal, and much joy was had. I’m taking my mom there when she comes to visit. This is how you win a customer for life!
