30 before 30?

It seems when people are about to turn 30 they make a "30 things to do before I'm 30" list.  My 30th birthday isn't all that far away.  I do have to turn 29 first, but after that it's the big 3-0.  I only really ever had one goal in my mind for 30: to look and feel the best I ever have.  I made this goal when I was 27.  I was doing great....until I wasn't.  I started living a not-so-healthy way to lose some weight and "look good".  I barely ate a thing and over-exercised.  I dropped my weight down to 132 pounds.  And then I got really hungry and gained 8 of those back.  Sitting at 140 was ok, but I still felt like I wanted to lose fat and build muscle.  I am now at 145 pounds and feel like crap.  I completely let myself go.  Last month, I weighed in at 150 and WOKE UP!!  5 pounds of that is's time for the rest to go.  I don't have a goal weight in mind, but I do have a goal body.  I have 15 months to get there!!

I'm not sure if I will make a 30 list, but I do have a life list.  A bucket list.  I keep adding to it, and sometimes removing from it as I learn and grow.

My Life List:

-Achieve the body I want
-Complete a triathalon.  (I'm thinking the 1-60-10 in Sylvan next summer!)
-Learn to play the guitar
-Spend time in Europe with Christiana
-Successfully Wakeboard
-Go on a weekend hiking trip
-Finish a novel

That's it so far, but I'm sure there will be more to come.

Drunken Jenga

My husband and I are avid game players, as well as avid drinkers.  What could possibly be better than turning Jenga into a drinking game?

Making the game takes a little bit of time.  Each block needs an instruction.  The rules below allow for 3 blocks of each rule, with 3 blank blocks.  You can leave the last 3 blank, pick your 3 favorite rules to use again, or make up 3 completely random rules!  Try to use a permanent pen that doesn't bleed too much.  Write in large block letters.  Once you have the blocks all written out, you're ready for Drunken Jenga!

Boo!  I'm back.  
I've been a little MIA.  My stupid depression hit crazy hard this summer and it took me quite a while to get it under control.  I'm finally getting my shit together after figuring out a few things that I need to do to simplify some of the things in my life.  Things are going much better now!  I have a few appointments coming up to help determine what I can do to get this under control more long term.  Oh....the battle....
So, one of the things that I decided to do make life simpler was to only focus on this one blog: The Drunk Runner.  I really don't have the time or desire anymore to have 4 different blogs running with 4 different topics, so now you're going to get them all here!  Yay for you!  Most of my content on my other "blogs" is rather pointless and contains a lot of venting, but some of them are rather funny.  While going through them, I came across this and thought I would share it with you.  I had started a blog to rant about my…

Positivity, People.

Yesterday, a fitness account that I follow on Twitter posted this picture and I had retweeted it.  I've seen this picture a few times before and I really didn't think too much of it until I noticed today that a friend of mine had commented on it.  Her reply was "Nice use of shaming. I give it an A plus in ignorance. Working out does not always equal being fit and vice versa."  Based on this comment, I started a couple heated discussion in regards to this picture and the message that it is suggesting.To me, this picture says “ if you aren’t willing to put in the effort, then you don’t deserve the results” (which I believe to be 100% true), but to others it seems to have a much more negative message.
