Since D and I have gone all "healthy lifestyling," I've had a lot of it in the past 3 weeks. To the point it is causing me anxiety. This week it has occurred for a beer bottle share, a beer release, and a beer dinner. I'm not sure what I'm going to miss out on. How do I balance beer and exercise?

Next up, a beer release: The State of Georgia doesn't like craft beer, so after SB63 was passed and was in effect for a few months, the DOR felt it necessary to reinterpret what the law actually said. I have my opinions about why this happened (suckass distributors in the LT. Governor's pocket), but in response, a lot of the Georgia Breweries are doing beer releases and special days where part of the money goes back to the the GA Craft Brewers Guild to help them replenish their reserves to fight this stupid misinterpretation of the law. D and I planned on going to one beer release, near us. We were going to walk and bring our backpacks so we could carry the 128oz of beer they were giving us (at a cost) back home. But the more I thought about it, the cheaper I got. I didn't want to spend $70 (the price for 2 of us) for a beer I've never had. So we decided we would go to a local bar (and not support the GCBG, but we would get our healthy walking in). Then a brewery in Athens posted something, and that seemed like a good idea, but a 70 mile 1-way trip? Plus it is Lompie's birthday. I thoroughly confused D about it yesterday, but the long and the short of it is we are back to walking to a bar...I think. Again FOMO.
Then we looked at a beer dinner at a restaurant we like, with beers we like. It is on Monday. I work out on Monday. It's a lot of money, although a good price. I've had 3 of the 5 beers, but they are good beers. And it should be fun because the restaurant is closed except for this event. It is a total FOMO.
The issue is that it isn't like I'm sitting at home drinking 20 glasses of water and a salad all the time (oh wait, that was last night). And we do have plans for Saturday, we just have no idea what they are, only they involve taking Lompoc with us.
And then the next Saturdays:
UGA @ GT
Strong Beer Fest
10K at Brewery
5K that will involve beer
Christmas for 2 days
So I'm trying to remember the FOMO needs to be balanced with the exercise and diet, so that my pants do fit when I do go out and be social.
But damn, this getting/staying healthy commitment is hard!
