Good choices.

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope your week is a good one!

We're on Letter G for the A-Z Challenge, and my commit to be fit post is about making good choices.

Making good choices isn't always easy for me.  Mainly, because I'm usually really drunk and not thinking about what's best for me in the long run.

You're probably thinking that I'm talking about making good diet choices and, of course, I am, but they aren't the only choices that need to be made when choosing to live a fit and healthy lifestyle.  Nutrition and diet choices are, actually, probably the easiest of all them all.

I'm talking about all the other choices.  The choice between going to the gym or going to the movies with my husband.  The choice between jumping on the treadmill at 11pm or just going to bed.  Making these choices can be really tough because there isn't necessarily a bad choice.  While going to the gym is a good fit choice, going to the movies would be great for my relationship with my husband and allow me some time to relax and de-stress.  Running at 11pm would make me feel great about getting my training run in, but the added sleep would also help my body recover and heal from my other workouts.  It all relates back to doing enough.  

Throughout my commit to be fit challenge, I'm taking a lot of time to think about my choices and find a balance that benefits all aspects of my life.  (see the F word)

I sure hope I do it right.


  1. It's hard to find the balance you need to keep yourself healthy. Heck, I'm always struggling with it and often losing.

    1. It's definitely a learning experience! We so easily forget about our mental and emotional health when we are focusing on physical health.

  2. it's fun over here!
    especially like the mae west quote!
    party on thru the challenge!

    1. Re-read the post Valerie. Margaritas are CLEARLY good choices!!! HA HA!! I love your blog! It means so much to me that you visit mine :D

  5. Hi there, I'm just dropping in from the AtoZ Challenge and letting you know that I've put a link to your blog from my post today

  6. Hi- just stopping in from the A-Z. Maybe following you will help me want to get my fat butt off this chair and run. Or get drunk. Preferably both!

  7. I'm with you on the drinking. My husband says he's too good at drinking to quit. lol

    1. When you're really good at something, you gotta stick with it!

  8. Such a great post! Everything in moderation... when you're too focused on one thing you tend to neglect another. Finding that balance is key. I am pretty sure I'm not there yet... haha!

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.
