Diet changes start today

Rough day yesterday?

Well, good news.

The ETR $100,000 Transformation Contest starts today at

Here are just a few of my ‘resolutions’ for the New Year.

1) Health: Follow a strict gluten-free diet (according to Dr. Peter Osborne’s methods). After testing positive for gluten-sensitivity back in June, I’ve done quite well in sticking to an advanced plan, but things got a little messy in December. So after Christmas Dinner, I started a strict plan for the next 90-days. It won’t be hard, but should be a learning experience.

Diet change today: Cutting out "carrageenan" from diet. That means no more chocolate milk after training. And worse, no more using Almond Breeze in my blender drinks.

Today's blender drink was: water, 1/2 avocado, prograde vanilla protein, frozen spinach, blueberries.

2) Wealth: Recruit 200,000 people to the 1st ETR $100,000 Transformation Contest and sell over 21, 246 units of the new TT Home Workout Revolution Videos.

3) Wisdom: Learn to play chess (personal goal) and take up BJJ (suggested by Bedros). I’ve already watched a 10-minute youtube video on chess, so I’m ready for Kasparov.

“Don’t be afraid to ask for help.” – Bedros Keuilian

For example, does anyone know the best "learn to play chess site" or app?

Today's training: My training today: Squats, box jumps, leg curls, lunges.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
Do your best with everything you have control over. Focus on improving yourself and you’ll improve your lot in life. Focus on planning ahead to overcome obstacles, rather than reacting. Be a driver, not a reactionary. Be the cause, not the effect.

“Real regrets only come from not doing your best. All else is out of your control. Trade excuses and “trying” for results. Do more than is expected of you. Life’s easy when you live it the hard way…and hard if you try to live it the easy way.” – Kekich Credo #4

PS - Never forget:

"Cherish time, your most valuable resource. You can never make up the time you lose. It’s the most important value for any productive happy individual and is the only limitation to all accomplishment. To waste time is to waste your life. The most important choices you’ll ever make are how you use your time." - Kekich Credo #2

Craig: The best way to learn chess is to play with someone who knows the game. My son taught me and it's a great activity to do together. Play with a friend!

Carrageenan is not in ALL brands of chocolate milk or almond milk. So that the masses are truly informed, here's a link to foods with and without carrageenan. Enjoy.
