Scoring Update: Beers with business associates while intermittent fasting

Posted by Scratch

PITTSBURGH (FFD) - For three days I have met my new more stringent Daily Gameday Objective. However, tonight poses a new challenge under the more stringent daily game day objective. With reduced calories I am now faced with meeting a business associate and having a few beers.  The proverbial trap game is upon me and how well will I handle that?

A part of me wants to say go for the low calories Scratch, even tonight. What the heck, get something light to eat and drink a beer and you’ll do just fine. However, another part of me says hey you had three great days in a row, just stick to the four hour eating window and do your best.

Do not beat yourself up over having an evening out with some friends and don’t be that guy who worries about everything he eats at a social occasion.  In this scenario common sense is the prevailing compass.

I think I will have to go with the second option.

Although it would be nice to stay under a certain amount of calories during a four hour eating window while I’m out having beers, I think it is more healthy if I just relax and take it easy.

I can allow myself one night where I can just sort of keep it reasonable on my intermittent fasting 20/4.

Intermittent Fasting 20/4: Calling An Audible 

I don’t really lose but I also don’t really celebrate at night for I am not entirely focused on health. This seems to be the reasonable compromise. Ins’t sensibility what sustained health is all about?

To note this day in terms of scoring, I think if I don’t pay attention to the calories then I do not get a touchdown. However, I do not give up a touchdown if I still keep the four hour eating fast on my intermittent fast 20/4. I think this helps me focus on two things. 

So I’m gonna go with that and will see how it goes. On this this night with beer with associates I am calling an audible.
