I'm a Yogi.

In my August 29th post, I had stated what my goals were to get my health and fitness back on track.
  1. Eat clean everyday!
  2. Complete every workout in Focus T25 (I start on September 2)
  3. Run 10 miles a week.
  4. Spend more quality time with my family.
  5. Prepare lunches and clothing  for the kids the night before.

It wasn't nearly as easy as I thought it would be.  I knew I shouldn't bother trying to make too big of changes over the long weekend, especially because we were away from home.  It took me a good week after that to get my "diet" (I hate that word) back on track.  My head is back in the game and I'm feeling so much better already!

Exercise wise, it's been a lot harder...
I completely Week 1 of Focus T25 and absolutely hated every single one of the 25 minute work outs.  I'm trying to tell myself that the more I do it, the more I"ll enjoy it. Especially because of the success that Randa has had with it!  I do find that I enjoy the "kickboxing/martial arts" type moves significantly more so I did order a video to teach me more of that!  This week (week 2) has not been going so well.  On Sunday, our entire family ran in the Drumheller Dinosaur 5Km race (I hope to post about this by the end of the week) and then hiked the valley's around Drumheller.  That's pretty much been my only exercise this week.  

On Monday, I decided to attend a lunch hour Yoga class.  I've never Yoga'd before so this was a pretty big step for me to do....alone.  I loved it!  I called on Monday afternoon and signed up for the session.  So now I am a Yogi on Mondays and Wednesdays during my lunch hour until mid-December.

Where I'm at with my goals right now:

      1. Killing it!
      2. Not killing it.
      3.There just isn't enough time....yet!
      4. Dinosaur Run, hello?!?!?
      5. I deserve an Awesome Mom medal!!  


From what I have accomplished of my goals these past couple of weeks has helped me drop my weight a few pounds and has made putting on jeans a little less scary.

Here's a picture of our boys after the DinoRun:


I think they look a wee bit proud of their accomplishment!

    1. Thank you! My goals used to consist of a lot of numbers that, a lot of the time, seemed unreachable. I'm glad I've changed my way of thinking!

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…
