enough IS enough.


  I can think of many 'e' words that are relevant to my commit to be fit theme for this A-Z Challenge: energy, exertion, educate, excel...the list could go on and on.

I finally settled on the word 'enough'.  

Christmas of 2010 I was at the lowest weight I had ever been.  I remember being very happy and very, very hungry.  I was over-exercising and under-eating.  The weight didn't stay off because it wasn't a lifestyle that I could keep up with.  By summer 2011, the weight was back on.

In my commitment to be fit and my quest to lose the last 10 pounds, I will be doing enough.  

I will exercise enough and I will eat enough.  I will change my body and change my life in a healthy, and maintainable way.

When I run, I will run fast enough.  When I lift, I will lift heavy enough.  When I stretch, I will stretch far enough.  

I will, simply, do enough.

  1. I think this is a great post. Sometimes when we aren't doing enough of the right thing we tend to not get to the goal we want. Whether it be fitness or any other part of our life. This is motivational to me because I want to have a healthy and fit pregnancy. However, like you posted I want it to be my lifestyle not just a goal I am trying to meet. Awesome post and I loved the quote!

  2. This is a great philosophy. You nailed it exactly. Doing just enough is often what's best for our bodies, and it's sometimes a hard balance to strike: too much and too little are often easier! Best of luck to you as you work toward your goal.

  4. Hard to know what is enough, though and we do take our good health for granted until. . .

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!

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.

Spork.

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…
