Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all my drunk runner friends!  I hope you all had a safe and happy night last night.  Big G and I kept it low key around here; we weren't really feeling the big hoop-la of it all.  Nonetheless, we had a great time playing some games with friends and then finished the night off to sounds of fireworks (sounds, as we weren't exactly sure where the fireworks were coming from) in our glorious hot tub!

So, as always, it's resolution time.  January first could be defined as the biggest Monday of the year: time to start with new goals, and purge the bad habits.  My goals aren't all that new.  Same goals, different strategy.

I had a life goal to be in the best shape of my life for my 30th birthday.  That goal was not all....not even close.  I accidentally forgot to try......

So I developed a new goal to be in the best shape of my life for my 30s and I'm on my way.  When say "on my way", what I really mean is that I'm on Day 6, but hey, it's a start, right?!

I bought myself a Christmas gift this year: a personal trainer.  This gal has worked wonders with her clients and I'm eager to see what she can do with my old, flabby self!  I can't give you much for details yet, as I'm not really sure what our disclosure agreement is, but once I figure that out, I'll keep all (3) of my readers in the loop with how it's going! 

Let's just hope that this doesn't happen again:

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.
