Streaking Update

1) Write 3000 words per day

Morning writing: Finished George Washington section...but went down rabbit hole on Thomas Jefferson research. Also worked on more Stephen King stuff, and finished 1100 words on Mother Teresa yesterday. I might need to draw a line in the sand as to the number of profiles I'm going to do.

Lots of calls this afternoon with my team, including one with Nick Papple, CTT, my assistant editor. We'll be sharing our thoughts about On Writing.

2) No Post Dinner Binge Eating

Moderate brunch and big dinner yesterday. Joel's chef, Chef Gui, prepared flank steak with chimmichuri sauce, black radiches (I did not know these existed), sweet potatoes, and swiss chard. Fantastic meal. I'll have leftovers of that tonight. On Friday we meet with Chef Gui to prepare the marketing plan for his new cookbook. It's going to be a big ETR project this year.

3) 1 Drink Maximum

Back on track.

4) No Outbursts or Snarkiness

Surrounded by amazing people at Joel's home in Florida. It's been a fantastic week. We have a 40th birthday party for his brother-in-law on Saturday, and then Joel and I are going to Miami for a Heat game on Monday. Life is pretty darn amazing, so no snarkiness is slipping in.

5) Healthy Gut Days

Everything is going great. In a good rhythm. Had some caffeine today, and started adding back in some foods to my diet that were previously considered "food sensitivities". These included almonds and stevia.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
You are the type of person who takes action, doesn't complain, finds a way to get it done, and never gives up, right? The answer is yes, you are. Remember that during the tough times today.

Always look for the slight edge,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT
