“Try to get winded 10 minutes a day. Physical activity is good, and even a little bit of higher intensity activity can go a long way toward boosting your aerobic capacity.”

*Get winded for at least 10 minutes today. Go to the driving range and drive golf balls for 10 straight minutes. Play 18 holes if you can. Remember that rest is rust.

“Turkey dinner is a concoction I can mush together. I like the multi-texture and multi-tastes — the turkey with the jam and buttered corn niblets and mashed potatoes — it’s great to have it all on a fork,”

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.
