Self-Indulgent Post of the Week: Eastbound and Down

What am I watching? I know I’m late to the party, but with Amazon Prime Video, I’m getting into Eastbound and Down. I finished season one and have moved a couple episodes into season two. Truthfully, the supporting characters can be kind of annoying and the show revolves entirely around the main character, Kenny Powers. If not for McBride’s delivery, this show would probably have been a flop.

What am I googling? Intermittent fasting. I mentioned the other night on Twitter that I started doing intermittent fasting, which is generally where you only eat for an 8- or 10-hour window per day. Some people even fast for a whole day or two per week. I don’t know if I can avoid eating for a whole 24-hour period, and I think I would probably have a hard time sleeping on an empty stomach. Generally, I don’t eat until 11:00 a.m. and I make sure to stop eating by about 7:00 p.m. My body has adjusted at this point where I don’t really feel hungry prior to 11:00, so I just had to get over the hump where my stomach was growling after 9:00 or so.

What am I looking forward to? The NFL Draft. Do I need to say anything else to you football fans about this? Michigan might have a couple guys drafted on the first night, and I always go to a draft party with a bunch of friends.
