“I don’t work out as much as I did as a player, but I try to work out at least three days a week, preferably four. My workouts have changed too — now it’s all about cardiovascular training and not so much about weight lifting. I lift a little bit to maintain muscle consistency, but I don’t do heavy weights anymore — I do lighter weights and more repetitions. That was a major shift from my playing days. For my cardio workouts, I try to mix it up. I ride the bike, I do the elliptical machine and I walk the treadmill on the highest incline.”

*Focus on cardio today. Jog 36 minutes in honor of Bettis #36. And then lift some light weights with high reps. then take the bus home.

SOUL

I went through a process of digging through different religions and ways of connecting to God. And that ended up being Islam for me

*Go through the process of digging through different religions and connecting to God until you find what is best for you.

MONEY

“If I go to Denny’s or IHOP, people are like, ‘You eat at IHOP?’ And I’m like, ‘Is there a Gucci egg somewhere that I’m missing?’ An egg is a goddamn egg; I don’t care if it’s from the Ritz Carlton.”

“People have this bizarre idea that, if you have a couple bucks, you gotta eat abstract food. Like we went on vacation in St. Barths, and everything had truffles on it. I wanted to bury myself next to a tree after a while. I was like, ‘Yo, I feel like I’m turning into a fucking truffle.”

*There are no Gucci eggs. You don’t have to spend a lot of your money on food. Don’t turn into a fucking truffle.

CROSSOVER – Go to Denny’s or IHOP for breakfast and make sure you order an iced tea.

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.
