Since my early 20's, I've had a bottle of Merlot (or 2) almost every night, except for both of my pregnancies and a couple attempts to get sober. Throughout all that time I have consistently worked out, ate healthy, and avoid all medication including pain relievers. It's ironic, isn't it? The reason why I have been so adamant about a healthy exercise and diet regimen was a calculated effort to balance my toxic lifestyle.
