Back Off

Here it is Wednesday and I haven't touch a kettlebell. I don't think I will today either. I need a back off week to let my body and mind recoup.

I have a full week of golf - Monday I did an hour's work on the driving range; Tuesday I had my league tournament, in which I placed second in my flight; Wednesday, today, I need to get in a round with my partner for a fundraiser for our golf course; and Friday I'm playing in a tournament with the hubby and a couple employees for a city's development corporation fundraiser. Whew! That's a lot of golf for me.

It has been nice to focus on something different for a short time. I think it'll make me start off next week fresh and ready to swing some iron.

In the meantime, I will be practicing my Z health and continuing my my quest to triumph over my nutrition. (Too much temptation with ice cream and Templeton Rye. Gotta clean house!) I made a trip to the natural food market yesterday and bought a load of good stuff. A few weeks ago I bought a pineapple corer. That thing is amazing! A pineapple lasts about one day in the house now! Sweet corn is in season as well as green beans. My raspberry patch is gearing up for a great crop mid to late August. There are so many yummy fresh foods available to me now. There is absolutely no reason to eat anything processed, such as the Quaker Oatmeal Squares cereal that has me under its spell right now. Step away from the box, Amy!!

Amy, I hope you enjoy your well deserved back off week. Your strong support of Templeton Rye has me considering a return to "brown licker", but my inventory of the stuff needs to be depleted first--I have half of a bottle of Crown and 3/4 of a bottle of Makers in my cabinet already. Plus, I feel like crap the day after drinking the hard stuff!

Yeah, Crown is my second favorite hard liquor. I don't have a huge sweet tooth, so I like the brown stuff serve with water and ice, no soda.

If you're coming back to St. Paul anytime, let me know and I'll smuggle you a bottle of Templeton Rye. You can only buy it in Iowa and Illinois. It's a lot like Crown, only it has a more creamy aftertaste.
