I only get a field goal today, because I had to depend on my average for the week to claim a winning day.

PITTSBURGH (FFD) - Had a great time yesterday celebrating the Fourth of July. Attending a pool party in the afternoon and at night took my daughter and her friend to downtown Pittsburgh to see the fireworks on the river. We took an Uber to get there. That was a good thing. Because through the day I had certainly my share of Sam Adams Boston Lager.

I must have walked several miles and for the most part if felt as if the beer barely hit me at all. It was stiffing hot. Nonetheless, Sam Adams is very high calorie beer and damn it, I just felt like I needed a day away from the light beer. So I had that day and once again, I am saved by the average calories and eating window for the week. For whatever reason, such days feel like a capitulation to The Fat Man.

There was full bodies Sam Adams on Fourth of July.

The scale went up yesterday too, a pound—almost two. So this is the first time on Season 48 that I am showing a slight weight gain. It is a half pound, but if I get on the scale today, who knows where it might stand? But, there is hope. There are three more days to turn things around.

Instead of going to Hal’s today like I always do, I am wondering if I just skip it. I am also thinking about skipping beer the rest of the week and even making my food choices keto based?

I am torn about going Keto. One one hand, I feel I am changing up things too much. After all, I only need to stick to the plan and I should be okay. On the other hand, may keto will help me plow my way to the 270s?

As I write this post on this Friday afternoon, I am seriously thinking about giving the beer a break. However, dang it, I just remembered my wife and I are going to a music show tomorrow. Oh, my dad’s birthday is Sunday. Maybe now is not the time to mess with the formula? Or, maybe it is the perfect time?
