Exercise 3 to 4 times a week for 1 hour and 15 minutes each time.

Warm up with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching.

Target all aspects of your body: 30 minutes on your legs, 30 minutes on core, arms and balance and 15 minutes of stretching.


*Miranda Kerr keeps it simple in this workout. Try it today.


George Takei 1937

And because he reminds us heroes are all around.

You’re never too old to be super


*Regardless of your age, you can be someone’s hero.

Upon attaining adulthood, Howard was mostly consigned to character parts; he has also been featured in the films directed by his brother Ron Howard.  Net Worth: $20 Million


*Don’t ever be afraid to take on roles that seem beneath you at the time. Those roles could add up to millions.


Jessica Lange 1949 – watch Blue Sky

When Carly (Jessica Lange) goes publicly ballistic, as she does early on in the story, Hank uses soothing words and the force of his presence to pacify her. As directed by Tony Richardson (who died after making this film), it’s an amazingly touching sequence, an exhibition of real manliness, as opposed to the cartoon-style machismo so prevalent in movies today.



*Watch an unhinged Jessica Lange in Blue Sky.


Luther Vandross 1951 – Luther Burger

Claim:   The “Luther Burger,” a bacon cheeseburger served on a Krispy Kreme doughnut bun, is a real food named after R&B singer Luther Vandross.

Status:   True.


*Listen to some Luther Vandross (maybe “One Shining Moment”) while indulging too far with a Luther Burger.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
