Saturday Morning Special is Circuits and Omelets

Today's workout in the garage was followed with a cooking lesson from my old high school buddy (he's a chef, trained in France, and works on private yachts). He made a great omelet for breakfast - and one for my mom, too, since we borrowed her kitchen as mine is not as nice - and then I fried up some plantains.

Today's TT Meathead workout was 5 rounds of:

DB Rows, KB Overhead Press, DB Rear-Deltoid Raises, Close-Grip Pushups with Band Looped over back for extra resistance, and Ab Wheel.

Great Saturday morning.

Streaking Update

1) Write 3000 words per day

Plenty of writing over the last few days here on the farm. Been up early and well-prepared. Lots of progress being made. Had fun writing an essay for for it on Friday, Jan 30th.

2) No Post Dinner Binge Eating

Been so good on this that I've been waking up too hungry in the morning. That's easily fixed!

3) 1 Drink Maximum

No need for cocktail hour this week, but will have one tonight with friends.

4) No Outbursts or Snarkiness

Been at home just with a few family and friends. Next week will be easy too. Next weekend will be a challenge at the big BioTrust Superbowl party as there will be three days in a row of heavy 'extroverted' socializing testing my introverted nature.

5) Healthy Gut Days

On a streak of perfect gut health nutrition.

Everything is easier when you remove temptations, interruptions, and distractions from your life.
Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:

Be true to yourself and your values. People respect people who truly believe in what they are doing, who are comfortable in their own skin.

Don't be embarrassed by what makes you unique. Be proud of it instead.

Use your struggles to get stronger. Develop habits to deal with dilemmas. Identify 2 solutions for every obstacle. Focus on progress, not perfection. Celebrate your journey from point A to point B. Make each day better than your last. You are stronger than you think.

Have an AMAZING weekend,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT
