Let's C if this works.


DAMN IT.  Who's idea was this to change my theme?


 Counting Calories.

Sometimes I count my daily caloric intake and sometimes I don't.  Sometimes I'm a little fat and sometimes I'm a lot.

Counting calories it is.

I've been using My Fitness Pal for about 3 years.  I weigh the same now as when I started.  It's going well.  When I actually use the app, I track everything I eat and stay within my caloric limits and I start seeing weight loss success.   
WHEN I use the app.  

I will be using My Fitness Pal diligently throughout this month to count my calories and stay on track to lose these last 10 pounds. 

Do I still need to abstain if I stay within my calories?


  1. Using a calorie counter was how I started my weight loss journey and it has helped a lot. I still use it on occasion, but I'm not as dedicated as I used to be....

  2. I had no idea such an app existed! I'm going to find it now :)


      Feel free to add me: bitchyd

  3. I used one for a while, but it just made me feel bad. :(

    1. ^oops! I commented under my other account ;)

      I just stopped by for a visit. I'm now self conscious of my commas.

  4. I try to avoid counting calories. My approach is to either accept the expanding waistline or get out and exercise more.

  5. I used Myfitnesspal for a while, it worked great. The problem is that I'm not too lazy to run, or too lazy to eat right, but I AM too lazy to sit down and figure out the calories for anything that isn't already in their database. I found you on the A to Z challenge, and not related to this post, but WHAT A GREAT NAME FOR A BLOG!

    1. I completely agree with both MFP and my name!! ;)

      A lot of my calories are added as "quick add" calories. Between my nutrition scale and my printed fruit/veggie/meat guides that are taped to the inside of my cupboards, I have a pretty good idea of what I'm consuming. This is probably why I'm always quitting MFP....

  6. I always had trouble adding calories... Some extras always sneaked in. Good luck with your goals. I used to enjoy running when I was younger, but I am a long way from it now. Stopping by on the A-Z

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! 

Rules of 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.
