As many who read the blog, or follow me on Facebook, know our whole family was doing Whole30. I can’t say enough good things about Whole30. I want to thank my niece and her husband for introducing it to all of us. I was a 63 year old junk food junkie. I loved my Dr. Pepper and Mountain Dew. I also have a sweet tooth that goes all the way to my Big toe. No more. I learned a lot and lost a lot of weight. I will now work hard to keep it off!
I am back to eating and drinking some of the things I enjoy and working hard to staying on the straight and narrow to be healthy (everything in moderation). I AM NOT giving up my bourbon and will continue to enjoy it.
Last week, on Day 31, I sat down after dinner in my favorite chair with a rocks glass and a little Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon. Wow, it felt so good to relax with a wonderful bourbon after a day of work. One of the simple pleasures in life.
As I sat there I thought of the cowboys depicted in the movies riding into town after a long day on the trail. They would belly up to the bar and ask for, “A whiskey or a bourbon, bar keep.” When you don’t do something every day it makes it special. My first bourbon drink post-Whole30 was special. Reflecting back on many life, family, friends, and experiences.
We spent the weekend on a short vacation in Virginia and I’ve returned with more exciting and fun places to recommend to all of you my faithful readers.
Here’s to all of you. Cheers!
