D Magazine: If you’ve got only 20 minutes to work out, what’s your routine?
Troy Aikman:
 Treadmill or Stairmill

What’s your typical daily workout routine?
An hour of weightlifting and 45 minutes of cardio (either Flywheel or a run on the Katy Trail.)

What’s your usual breakfast?
Oatmeal, banana, egg white pancakes.

*If you only have 20 minutes hit the treadmill or stair master. If you have more time, lift weights for an hour and 45 minutes running on a local trail. And you’ve got a breakfast idea to start your day.

SOUL

Thousands of friends filed through the Cathedral Basilica in St. Louis during Musial’s six-hour public visitation.  Hundreds filled the Basilica for the two-hour funeral Mass, while many stood outside.  All came to honor an exceptional human being and to pray for the repose of his soul.

This is what “repose of the soul” means in a Catholic context: that the soul has gone to heaven to be with God for all eternity.

*You want to be honored as an exceptional human being and experience the final reward as a faithful follower. You’re living your life so that your soul can go to heaven to be with God for eternity.

MONEY

“Harold was clearly the most successful comedy writer-director of all time,” said Tim Kazurinsky, who followed Ramis at Second City and later became his friend.

“The number of films that he has made that were successful, that were blockbusters, nobody comes close. Even in light in of that, he was more successful as a human being.”

*Strive to be the best at your profession. Strive to be better as a human being.

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.
