My 80-20 Rule

I don’t think I have to convince anyone that sometimes we all like to have a little fun. We fall off the grid or we get silly with friends. Being super strict with my eating and exercising 100% of the time gets a little boring and can be inconvenient to others.

So the goal is to follow my routine 80% of the time. The other 20% of the time I let loose and have some fun. I eat and drink whatever is served and I enjoy it. Not that keto foods aren’t fun and delicious, but eating is a social activity.

My Lifestyle is Flexible but not sloppy

I know my Keto and Intermittent Fasting lifestyle is just that…a lifestyle. My 80/20 rule is my way to stay flexible with my eating. I stick to it MOST of the time-80%, but occasionally-20% I throw caution to the wind and I indulge.

Keeping it fresh

When it veer off the routine it gives me a fresh perspective on how great I feel when I’m eating clean fresh foods, getting exercise, hydrating and sleeping through the night.

Boy does it suck to wake up in the middle of the night with a belly ache from carby and sugary foods. It never feels good to wake hung over and dehydrated from that 2nd (or 3rd martini)….but it sure was fun while it lasted.

That’s why 20% of the time I just go have fun…and then I quickly get back to my 80% routine.

The Judgement

Always being the “Healthy Girl” puts a target on my forehead for the food police. If I had a nickel for every time someone caught me eating or drinking non-healthy foods I’d be a rich lady. People..I’m human and I LOVE food.

I feel the need to share that we are all entitled to some fun and to let our guard down. The key is that we don’t stay in party mode.

20% of the time have some fun. 80% of the time be responsible, eat well and get back into the routine.
