28 degrees C - New York - Coaching - Interviews and great encounters
Still feeling jet-lagged, I leave on an empty stomach (but not without drinking 3 cups of green tea) the first appointment is with my agent in NY. 30 minutes walk on an empty stomach.
During the meeting I feel the hunger pangs... thank goodness I always have a raw snack bar with me!
30 minutes walk on the way to my next meeting with a New York Times journalist... delightful! We lunch together with Steve my east coast publicist who is pampers me! On the menu: I ignore the bread and butter that is offered, as always, in American restaurants and order a lobster burger and eat half of the bread + salad. No pudding here, even the most pleasant interviews don't last that long :)
Rooibos tea and a fruit salad.
Another 30 minutes walk to the next meeting of which I will tell you more later.
The temperature is a good 83 degrees, heavy with humidity... it feels quite tropical!
Back at the hotel to collect my son and we're off to Central Park for a relaxing 2 hour stroll.
We have earned our New Yorker's treat: a hot dog, of course, but I still won't eat the soggy white bread, so it is sausage and a small packet of crisps for me.
Dinner in a really nice restaurant with my American editor to discuss my new book launch. The menu is worthy of LeBootCamp: watercress and blood orange salad + scallops on a bed of vegetables + a small piece of bread + hazelnut ice cream for desert.
100 abs on the carpet + 10 press ups... I am zonked
