…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.
This weekend I’m going to Vegas with a few girlfriends to do… well, Vegas.
One of the big things everyone gets excited about in Vegas is lounging and drinking by a pool. People want to look “good” while they’re lounging because everyone is there to be seen. Gotta be picture ready for the pictures you’ll take to post on social media so you can show all your friends how much fun your life is and how perfect your body is.
I’ve been using this trip as an excuse to go harder at the gym knowing that I’ll be walking around in a bikini in Vegas.
But the truth is… I’m pale and last about 20 minutes in direct sunlight even with all my sunscreen on. If all we’re doing is lounging, I’d rather lounge in the shade under a blanket to protect my skin. If I’m gonna get burned, it damn well better be because I’m doing something awesome in the sunlight for so long I forget to reapply my sunscreen.
Plus… I don’t really care what the people who like lounging by pools in Vegas think of me. Like… at all.
So I’m packing sunscreen, a bikini, and a whole lot of IDON’TGIVEAF*** for this trip.
Vegas, baby. Vegas.
