Win Or Lose, We Still Booze
Happy Tuesday everybody! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Here’s what you might of missed from this past week:
- I went to the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert, and saw the band after the concert!
- I had a froyo date with a few of my favorite Boston bloggers.
- I posted a new arm circuit workout from personal training.
Oh, and one more thing. You are now all in the presence of an Olympian.
This weekend Dani and I represented the luck of the Irish in the first annual Beer Olympics.
There was an appearance by the Americans..
The Beer Olympics were composed of 7 different events: flip cup, the funnel, civil war, kegstand, titanic, boat race, and beer pong. Now us Irish, we may not be the best at playing beer pong or flipping cups, but we’re damn good at drinking beer. Although we got last place in flip cup, we quickly made a comeback by earning the silver medal in “the funnel challenge”. Next up was civil war, yet another game that involved more ball throwing and less drinking (no bueno). We may or may not have gotten last place yet again.
BUT NO WORRIES FRIENDS, two last place finishes did not deter us Irish. Instead of accepting defeat, we pulled out a bottle of Jameson and began chanting “WIN OR LOSE, WE STILL BOOZE!” followed by several rounds of shots.
As I previously mentioned, our team strengths didn’t lie in tossing ping pong balls into solo cups. No, our strength was the ability to drink, and drink we did! The next event was the kegstand. Due to the rules, one guy and one girl from each team had to participate. Dani quickly backed out and Emi, our only other girl, was quick to follow. Who did that leave? Me.
Now, I went to Florida State. I’ve done my fair share of kegstands and I guarantee 99% of them didn’t last longer than 15 seconds. So although I was nervous, I was even more determined not to let my team down! This was the OLYMPICS after all. I was going for the gold baby!
I was lucky enough to situate myself to go last after all the other girls. I watched as each girl went from 15 to 30 seconds. All I kept thinking was, I just have to make it past 15 seconds! Before I know it my hands were on the keg and my legs were in the air. It was gametime.
Ready. Set. GO.
Hey, this isn’t so bad. Man I love beer.
Wait, did she just say 40? I’m feeling like a BOSS. Oh yay, my team’s chanting my name. Go meee, go meee!
I’m almost at a minute. What the %#!$ is going on?? Oh man I’m full.
A fifty eight second kegstand?!? WHO AM I. And then I realized I was an Olympian. An Olympian with the luck o’ the Irish on her side!
Although Ireland brought home the bronze overall, I had so much fun
Sunday I decided to embark in a little spring cleaning. (AKA clean up the piles of clothes off my floor and finally do some laundry.)
I turned this…
Welp! I’m off to start my work day and catch up on the piles of work that have been stacking up. Lately I’ve been extremely overwhelmed and been having trouble finding my balance between work, the gym, and my social life. It seems as if when I’m excelling in one, the other two are slacking. It’s tough trying to figure out how to balance everything without feeling incredibly stressed, but hey I’m getting there. And I can’t wait for this weekend! My parents and sister are coming to visit Boston for the very first time this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited to show them around the city! I’m hoping the rest of the week just flies on bye
Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday. Be back tomorrow with WIAW and a strength training workout that kicked my butt!
Olympian here, over & out.
If you’ve ever been to Boston, what is would you recommend to do while you’re here? I’m trying to make a list of things to do while my parents & sister are in town! Any + all suggestions are appreciated!!
