  Thursday was a birthday dinner with the family at Texas Road House BBQ. It got me thinking—do I need to do Keto or low carb?

Scoring Summary

  • Sunday - Stayed home most the day. The Steelers dropped one on the road to the Raiders, a team that won 2 games all year. Things are not looking good for the Black N’ Gold. How are things looking for me? After 4 full weeks of counting calories, I think I no better than when I was doing the Warrior’s Diet. Moreover, I need a break from the calorie counting. A Daily Gameday Objective change is in the works for Week 5 Preseason. It may just be a return to the 20:4 style of intermittent fasting.

  • Saturday - Madrigal dinner theater. My daughter had a part. Later that night, it was the Wheelfish Bar & Grill with one of my best friends over the ears. For a birthday drink, a 16 year old Scotch and water. Of course, beers too.

  • Friday - Fun happy hour at the Hiland Bar. Santa was there. So were the Prophet, Bud and me, Scratch.

  • Thursday - Birthday dinner at Texas Road House barbecue.

  • Wednesday - Not sure why, but I had victory in the palm of my hand. Then, kind of made myself each Chic-Fill-a with my daughter, who was famished after basketball practice.

  • Tuesday - Stopped at Hal’s Bar & Grill on the way home. Needed some Sam Adams. Yes, the day was handed to the Fat Man.

    Monday - Hung out at home. Didn’t make it to the gym, but ate very low calories. Watched The Return of the Pink Panther with my son.
