    I recently discovered "Gellish" manicures, a super beefy UV cured polish that works on your own natural nail. Doesn't chip AT ALL for two weeks. And I don't shy away from adventure!

    I find a timer helps. Set to every 15 minutes.

    On every 15, sip some calories.
    On every 30, also take a bite and chew something. Blocks, PB&J, rice bar, Clif bar, whatever.

    When standing, I'll only do it for 10-15 seconds, rarely more than 30s. I find it's best for super short steep pitches that you might need a little extra OOMPH to get over, of just to stretch the...
