…keeps the doctor away.
There’s a study that just got published by Harvard School of Public Health that suggests moderate drinking is actually good for you.
Seriously. Read it yourself.
I’m not a heavy drinker by any means. I’m actually pretty satisfied with one drink any given night. When I really feel like going crazy, I might have two. If it’s an all-day party, I might even have three in the course of 8 hours. NUTSO!
So I’m not gonna feel guilty for the next few nights as I cuddle up with a seasonal beer and watch a Western. I’m actually getting healthier.
I’m visiting my hometown of Indianapolis at the moment. This is limiting my overall workouts, but extremely helpful for my personal recalibration and inspiration.
Plus, it’s nice on my bank account because my mommy and daddy buy me everything. Because I am an adult. And I depend on them to buy me stuff.
Anyhoo, my mommy bought me insoles for my foot. They’re specifically targeted for people suffering from plantar fasciitis. They give a little extra cushioning between your heel and the ground. Which I guess lets the inflamed tendons heal a little bit.
I put them in my running shoes. I haven’t had time to use my running shoes yet. And when I do use them, it will not be for running (just yet) because we have to work back up to that. But I’m excited I’ll have at least something that will hopefully help.
Plus, my parents have a little elliptical machine in the extra bedroom. I was able to elliptical the other day for about 40 minutes without pain. So maybe I’ll give the new insoles a little spin on the elliptical machine.
That is assuming, of course, my brother isn’t home. If he is, I will probably drink beer and catch up on Breaking Bad instead of working out. I’m still technically on “vacation,” after all.
