Kick Ass.

 Day 11, Letter K, and almost 5 pounds gone!  I'm kicking ass at my A-Z Commit to be Fit Challenge!!  

I'm quite certain that the next 5 pounds are going to be quite a bit tougher than the first 5, but I'm willing to do the work.

The weather is finally getting nicer in our parts and I made it out for my first outdoor run this evening.  3 degrees was a little cool and my ears were screaming at me for not wearing a toque, but it felt great to finally get out and run at a natural pace.

My 1/2 marathon is just over 5 weeks away.  My goal is to run a strong race.  I expect a personal best, but I'm not necessarily striving for it.  I really just want to feel good the entire race and kick ass!

Maybe I'll run it in a power ranger costume....


  1. Ciongratulations! Losing weight has always been a tough goal of mine ugh!

    My AtoZ challenge

    1. It quite the challenge for me. I'm not overweight by any means, I just know that I could look SO much better if I did lose a bit. How I FEEL always wins though. Whatever I lose will come back. Why? Cause I'm happiest around 140 when I can eat wings and enjoy good beer!!

  2. I'm glad you have started your weight loss program. Starting is half the battle. I guess my post today about the killer chocolate cheesecake wasn't exactly the thing you needed to see when you're trying to lose weight. That's my only food post on this A to Z.

    I know I could not get out in three degrees either. I can barely go out at forty degrees. I'm a warm weather person.

    I also would never even attempt to run a marathon, so good for you.


  3. Kick ass at the race! Congrats on the first 5.

  4. I need someone to kick my ass, and get it in gear before summer. Good going.

    1. Good luck! You can do anything you want to!!

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.
