MIND

*Consider today as one more step towards a new stage of opportunity and strength.

BODY

Oscar De La Hoya 1973

An upper body day that’s all push-pull. We want him using equal weight pushing and pulling because that makes him very symmetrical. So that when you’re throwing a punch, everything is very even.

*Use today as an upper body day. Try to use the same weight (barbell or dumbbells) and focus on four areas – chest (bench press) – biceps (curls) – shoulders (military press) and back (pull downs). Then use the symmetry of the push-pull workout to throw a punch or two in a boxing workout, just like the Golden Boy.

SOUL

Rosa Parks 1913

Rosa Louise Parks was nationally recognized as the “mother of the modern day civil rights movement” in America.

*Get out of your comfort zone and ride the city bus today. I had no idea how to do it. I simply went to the nearest bus stop and waited. The wait itself opened my eyes to people less fortunate than I am. Once on the bus, I sat as far to the back as I could and just observed a different world than what I am used to. It was good for my soul.

MONEY

Lawrence Taylor 1959

LT lost a fortune with lavish spending and hard partying. Since leaving the league, Taylor’s been arrested a handful of times for drug possession, was caught by the IRS filing a false tax return, and declared bankruptcy in the late 90s.

*You should have your taxes by now. Look at how much you made last year. Where did it go? Make a vow that at this time next year, you will know exactly where all of your money went. There are apps and websites that can help with this. And whatever you do, don’t be like the greatest linebacker ever and waste it all and then file a false tax return.

ENTERTAINMENT

CRASH A WEDDING DAY

MIND

Amal Clooney 1978

Image result for amal clooney

“Love is the one thing in life that I think is the biggest determinant of happiness, and it’s the thing you have the least control over. Are you going to meet this person? I was 35 when I met him. It wasn’t obvious that it was going to happen for me. And I wasn’t willing or excited about the idea of getting married or having a family in the absence of that.”

*If you haven’t found love yet, don’t settle for anything less than you deserve.

BODY

Warwick Davis 1970

What do you most dislike about your appearance?
“I have a positive outlook. Sometimes I feel my face carries too much weight. When I notice it around my jawline, I watch what I eat.”

Davis was born with the condition spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenital (SED), which caused his dwarfism.

*Appreciate the body that you have and if your face is carrying too much weight, watch what you eat.

SOUL

Maura Tierney 1965

Image result for Maura Tierney

“It’s been a slow burn for me in terms of figuring things out. I think having the cancer has changed me. I’m more bossy and more easy-going at the same time. I say what I want and less stuff bugs me now. I was never uptight, but I used to worry a lot. It turns out, no matter how much you worry you can’t control things. Also, I don’t want to waste time.”

*Don’t waste time by worrying about anything today.

MONEY

MIND
James Joyce 1882

There are two kinds of people. Those that have read “Ulysses” and those that haven’t

*Actually there are 3 types of people. I tried reading it. I stopped on page 323. I just don’t get it. Every year on this day, I’m going to continue to read as much as I can until one day I finish this monster.

SOUL

George Halas 1895

“San Francisco has always been my favorite booing city. I don’t mean the people boo louder or longer, but there is a very special intimacy. When they boo you, you know they mean you. Music, that’s what it is to me. One time in Kezar Stadium they gave me a standing boo.”

*Take pride in being booed today. Take it as a compliment. Papa Bear Halas would be cheering for Kansas City to beat San Francisco in tonight’s Super Bowl.

MONEY

Ayn Rand 1905

Image result for ayn rand

“Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to be the tool by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of men. Blood, whips and guns—or dollars. Take your choice—there is no other—and your time is running out.”

Ayn Rand wrote volumes urging people to be selfish.

  • Work hard to achieve a life of purpose and productiveness.
  • Pursue your own happiness as your highest moral aim.

*This may change your whole outlook on life and you will no longer need to read the Money or Soul portions of 365DOLF.

Ina Garten 1948 – Super Bowl Caramelized Bacon

Image result for ina garten

“I’ll admit that for me, the Super Bowl is less about football than it is about the party. If I’m having friends over to watch the game, I love to serve something that’s really decadent and over the top – like my Caramelized Bacon. What could be better than strips of bacon that are crispy, salty, spicy, and a little bit sweet? The only problem is your guests will love these so much, you’ll have to make a lot!! Have a great Super Bowl party and may the best team win!”

https://barefootcontessa.com/recipes/caramelized-bacon

*The above was a Facebook post from our Super Bowl birthday girl. Make a lot of caramelized bacon for the big game.

The past has been a mint
Of blood and sorrow.
That must not be
True of tomorrow.

Abs

We do exercises in three-minute rounds—crunches, oblique twists, planks—but the main thing is, we hit it hard.
