My 5K Running Workout Playlist

February 16, 2012 Leave a comment

I know I’ve disappeared for a long, long while but I’m back, kinda. So yes, you’ve read my headline right. Your girl is training trying to run a 5K race in April. No, I have not signed up to run one yet but I plan to in the near future! Running a 5K is on my imaginary bucket list (I know, piece of cake for the average human but I have lots of jiggle) and I finally decided to stop thinking about doing it and finally do it. Well, yesterday was my first day running on the treadmill since my bout with bronchitis (it was not cute AT ALL). I’m happy to say I didn’t stop and I ran the hilly 5K option on the treadmill in 32 minutes. I thought I was going to die afterwards but I did it!! The only motivation (other than seeing the finish line) was my super duper awesome playlist I made for it. I wanted to share it with the masses 5 readers I have and hopefully, this can motivate you to kick ass in the gym as well. Thank me later!!!

1. Rihanna – Where Have You Been
2. Flo Rida – Good Feeling (DON’T LAUGH! This song cranks in the gym!)
3. Salt-N-Pepa – Push It
4. Beyonce – Countdown
5. Pitbull f/ Ne-Yo – Give Me Everything
6. Rihanna – We Found Love
7. LMFAO – Sexy and I Know It (Again, don’t laugh & judge. This song is stupid funny and very motivated while sweaty!)
8. Alexandra Stan – Mr. Saxobeat
9. Magic System – Ambiance a l’africaine (A little African music goes a long way in keeping your energy up.)

Another fun Fatou tip, to stay motivated, not only do I crank these songs up, I pretend that I’m the star video ho in each video. That really keeps my energy. Yes, I’m a fool.

I’m interested to hear your favorite workout songs so I can add them to my gym playlists.

I promise I will not make another post about that Monday Night Football Madden beatdown that I’ve decided to black out of my memory. This image was too good to pass up so caption this –

My life is complete now that I’ve seen LaToya Jackson in person!

Whenever I think I’m over living in New York City, the unimaginable happens – this time being me walking right into the “Celebrity Apprentice” taping & seeing the greatness that is LaToya Jackson, Gary Busey, Star Jones, NeNe Leakes, and Lil Jon. Now that I’ve finally breathed the same NYC air as LaToya Jackson, my life is complete!! She’s ridiculously tiny in person & actually doesn’t look bad in person. And Star Jones is wayyyyy smaller in person than I imagined & yes, she IS a lawyer (go sit in the corner if you don’t get the reference). And yes, I was tempted to yell “Keep your legs closed to married men” when I saw NeNe but alas, I kept it klassy. Only in NYC can you walk home from work to end up on the set of a TV show. Here’s my lovely Blackberry photos –

BTW – Yes, Gary Busey’s teeth as even bigger in person.

Funny of the Day – Justin Bieber goin INNNNN on Tom Brady

Justin Bieber doesn’t appreciate Tom Brady copying his lesbian hairstyle & he let him know in his rap “Speaking in Tongues.”

For those who can’t stomach listening to The Biebs rap, he said “Call up Mr. Brady. Tell him to leave his hair to that guy that sings ‘Baby.’ ”

This ish is hilarious & yes, I have Bieber Fever. Don’t judge.

Funny of the Day

September 30, 2010 4 comments

Thank you Divorce Court for the 5 pounds I just lost laughing. This woman, Dietra Hicks, was battling her ex-husband in court to get her ring back that he stole and gave to his mistress/new wife. Sadly, that’s not the funny part. Dietra also has extreme anger issues, and has physically fought her ex-husband on more than one occasion. Still, that’s not the funny part. Dietra went to anger management classes and her therapist told her to rid her anger through song. That’s exactly what she did in court. I’m here to share the gift of laugh to my 10 many lovely readers so please enjoy & feel free to leave comments.

Props to one of my favorite blogs, Vulture, for the heads up on this. Follow them @Vulture on Twitter as well!

Rihanna crashed my boy Brad’s brunch on Sunday afternoon & I MISSED IT!! She was shooting a video for her new single “What’s My Name?” in the Lower East Side & my boy Brad, photographer & videographer extraordinaire, was there to get some awesome shots. I’m here to share the goodness.

Photos courtesy of @BradBurnside. Hit him up if you have Twitter and he can capture awesome shots of you too!! He can also photoshop if you’re interested.

PS – Rihanna’s hair is a complete Ronald McDonald fail!
