have you exercised today

quick self-check
  • Are you hungry? Should you get some food?
  • Are you thirsty? Have you had anything to drink in the last two hours? Should you get a drink?
  • Do you need the bathroom? Do you need a shower?
  • How is your posture? Are you sitting comfortably? Are you sitting in a way that is good for your back?
  • Check the time. Have you been on for too long? Are you ready for any scheduled things you have today? Were you going to work, exercise or sleep in this time?
  • Are you the right temperature? Too warm, too cold?
  • How is the air? Is it stuffy? Do you need to open a window or go outside?
  • Have you taken your meds and/or birth control?
  • Is your music loud? Could it be turned down to spare your hearing? Are there background noises that are stressing you out?
  • Are you developing a screen headache? Have you had a break in the last hour?
  • Have your hands had a rest from typing and clicking? Are they tired?
  • How are you feeling? Are you getting stressed? Is your stomach settled? Are you tense? Is there anything bothering you? Do you need to pause? Do you need to meditate?
Checklist for when feeling crappy
  1.  Is it late at night? Try to go to sleep. If it’s stressful try some white noise or audiobook or something, or just lay down but don’t turn off the lightsIf it’s not working, keep going with the list and try again later
  2. Are you cold? If yes, put on a sweater, or some socks, or a tuque and gloves if necessary
  3. When was the last time you ate? If it was more than three hours ago, go find something to eat
  4. Have a sip of water
  5. Have you taken your meds/vitamins today?
  6. Have you done any bit of exercise today? If not, do something, even if it’s small. Choose a short workout from Darebee or take dog for a walk
  7.  Have you showered in the last two days? Take a shower (or a bath if that feels right). If, once you’re in exfoliating sounds like a good idea, do that. If, once you’re out, moisturizing sounds like a good idea, do that.
  8. If it’s daytime, are you dressed? Put some comfy or otherwise feel-good clothes on
  9. Do you have any homework or similar pressing work to do? Spend five minutes working on that. Maybe you’ll get into the flow and do more, but if not, no biggie
  10. If you have pets, have you cared for them today? Check and make sure their spaces are clean and they have food and water. Pet and play with them
  11. Have you hugged anyone today? Go hug someone. If no people are available hug a pet, if no pets are available find a teddy bear
  12.  Is your living space clean? Spend five minutes tidying or cleaning something
  13. Have you done anything creative today? Try that for five minutes
  14.  Have you talked to anyone today? Even if no one’s around physically, send a text to a friend at least
  15. Have you gone outside today? If it’s light out and/or not too cold, go and spend a few minutes outside

Thank you for filling my prompt, it was adorable! Just what I wanted. Also, yes I was thinking of those damn leather pants too, hahaha. More autumn prompts you say? How bout raking leaves as punishment for being risky on a mission/blowing shit up ("Merlin, we have landscapers for this shit." "They were fired.") So annoyance, frustration as the wind blows the leaves around, taking off of layers cuz they got hot, ultimately giving up and tackling each other into leave piles and snogging.

“Merlin, I’m pretty sure we got gardeners for this shit,” Eggsy groaned. “Posh places like this have fucking teams of gardeners. Seen it on Downton Abbey.”

“And they deserve a day off for doing excellent work without blowing up a warehouse,” Merlin replied, sounding bored. “Stop whinging or you’ll be out there all day.”

“Already been out here all day,” Eggsy muttered under his breath.

“I can hear you, lad. This could become a weekly exercise for you both.”

“What have I done? Today I mean?” Harry spoke up for the first time since he had asked if Merlin was truly serious about the two rakes he was holding when the tech wizard met them at HQ that morning.

A gust of wind blew by. While it was welcome on such an unseasonably hot day, it did blow off the top of the newly made leaf piles.

Eggsy took off his glasses and threw his head back, glaring at the sky. “Oh for fuck’s sake!” He wiped his bare forearm across his forehead and set about raking the wayward leaves back into place, back muscles making a most appealing view.

Harry gave in and removed not only his suit jacket, but his shirt as well. Since he’d been chosen as Arthur, he’d done far fewer missions and as of yet, none outside of the United Kingdom. Harry feared he was showing a rather pale complexion in comparison to Eggsy, who had been on a mission in California for the past month.

At least until Eggsy found out that the drug smugglers he’d just beaten the crap out of were also human smugglers and decided letting any surviving scumbags get arrested was too good for them.

Harry had been his handler, as such it was his responsibility to reign in his agent’s darker inclinations. But then Eggsy had turned to face the group of young people he’d released from the literal animal cages. Not a one could be old enough for university. One girl was clutching a doll that Harry recognized as being some Disney princess or other because he’d seen it’s twin in Daisy’s bedroom.

“Go ahead,” Harry said.

Eggsy ceased just playing with his lighter and got the victims to a safe distance before priming the gold grenade and tossing it in a perfect arc.

“Pretty,” Harry had commented as the building went up in flames, the smoke catching the beginnings of the sunrise.

Eggsy had laughed. Harry would gladly let a hundred warehouses full of criminals burn for the sound of that laughter.

Merlin knew that all too well. So after he reviewed the footage, he determined that both deserved equal blame for the incident coming to the attention of local news crews. “Highest level of discretion,” he’d muttered and glared daggers at Harry. “You used to know what that meant. You two are a couple; you can stop showing off for the lad any day now.”

“I’m afraid he’s trained it into me with positive reinforcement now,” Harry had said in a complete monotone. “I rather expect this incident has earned me a month of blowjobs.”

Eggsy had laughed so hard he almost fell out of his chair and it was entirely worth it when Merlin threw a laptop charger at Harry’s head. Neatly ducked, of course.

“How did you make him worse?” Merlin addressing Eggsy, still bent double and gasping for breath between outbursts. “How did you actually make Harry Hart more of a flash bastard than he already was?”

So Merlin had devised the punishment (“yes Eggsy, despite the fact he is in name my boss, I can punish Harry because if he fires me the coffeemaker will never work properly again and he wouldn’t risk a bunch of highly-trained agents all going through caffeine withdrawal at the same time”) leading to their present predicament.

A shrill whistle distracted Harry from the leaves he’d been mindlessly raking.

“Looking good,” Eggsy said, sidling over to his partner to admire him.

“Likewise,” Harry smiled and his eyes traced a drop of sweat as it made its way from Eggsy’s pectoral down to the darkened fabric at his waistband. Where his gaze lingered.

Merlin’s voice growled in Harry’s ear, “If I reprieve you morons, will you at least take this somewhere private?”

Harry tiled his head, considering the offer.

Eggsy, who could tell something was up but couldn’t hear, decided to take that moment to stretch his right leg behind his head with a wink.

“No, I don’t think so,” Harry said to Merlin before he tackled Eggsy into the giant leaf pile, ruining an afternoon’s work and unrepentant of the fact.

Harry vaguely registered Merlin’s voice telling him about all the nasty, unpleasant jobs he was assigning to them both immediately. He paid no mind and removed his glasses while Merlin was still ranting.

Eggsy was laughing between kisses and the leaves were falling gently around their heads

Entirely worth it.

remember to care for your body.  sit up straight while at the computer; take breaks to stretch out and get your circulation going.  go grab a glass of water.  have you eaten today?  if you can manage some exercise, reserve some time to do a little.  your body is too precious to ignore; treat it with love.


Mental health checklist:

  • Have you drunk enough water today? 
  • Have you eaten enough today?
  • Have you taken your meds today?
  • Have you exercised today? (It doesn’t have to be a long workout, even 5 minutes is okay!)
  • Have you talked to someone today (online or in person)? (It doesn’t have to be a long conversation, a short chat is just fine!) Extra: Have you gone outside today?
  • Have you done your homework? Extra: Are there any other responsibilities you need to take care of? (e.g. grocery shopping, cleaning, making appointments)
  • Have you taken care of your personal hygiene today? (shower/bath, brushed hair, brushed teeth, deodorant, shaved (if applicable), cut nails (if needed) changed clothes)
  • Have you been kind to yourself today? Say some affirmations, out loud or in your head! Remember that you are beautiful, valuable, and loved.
  • Are you on track to get enough sleep? 

These are all things I have to remind myself of, so I hope it helps some of you~

Encounter with the Ubershatten... (RWBY open)

“If you have not guessed… Today is the start of endurance training exercises… I know this may sound somewhat strange, but there might may be a time in your life when simply killing any Grimm you encounter is just not enough.” The dark haired teacher said with her speech, the nearby Beowolf-like beast snarling and snapping at the students in it’s cage.

“And… for practice for those times, I brought this big guy back with me…”

This was going to be interesting…

“Are there any volunteers?”

Here we Go again

Greg Ellis is posting again on twitter and not at all being appropriately apologetic to the person his actions harmed.  He can plead intent all he wants; actions here are what counts. People calling you out for problematic behavior is NOT cyberbullying (and man have you been pretty happy to exercise that ban hammer today).  What is happening to that poor girl IS.  Stop playing the victim here.

How often did you guys exercise to get the weight off? I'm so close to my goal but it feels like it's taking FOREVER!

I came across this graph the other day & find it exhibits nicely why exercising up hills is so important.  A friend of mine came to visit this weekend and we went for a run, he told me he normally does 3 to 4 miles every day & I was not surprised at all that he could not make 1 mile on a gradual incline. The “Light Exercise” reminds me of how most people interpret activity, just walking or jogging or being on their feet all day or riding on flat land might not get you past your glycogen % to burn fat as fuel.  If you look at those moderate and heavy lines what do those remind you up?  BIG HILLS!  So if you want to break into that stubborn last bit of fat this might give you an idea how to get your body to use more fat as fuel.  I road for about 4 hours today with Robby up mountains & we even had to carry our bike about a mile up a trail that was too washed out & steep.  (LexisVeg on snapchat) Get your heart rate up, and have fun doing it!  Do you think I thought today as exercise?  No it was ADVENTURE!  Find some mountains, your body won’t hesitate at all to drop the added weight when you really make it carry it upward provided you aren’t filling your fat tank back up with high fats in your meals.
