*From 1pm to 4am, live like a former president today.
Kelly Brook 1979
“My two killer fitness secrets are exercises that Tamayah and I have special names for … the Brook Bum Buster and the Beverly Hills Power Walk!”
‘The Brook Bum Buster is killer but really does the trick and the Beverly Hills Power Walk is basically walking really fast on an uphill gradient on the treadmill – which is brilliant for your thighs and bum! It reminds me of when I lived in LA and I used to see everyone powerwalking around in their sun visors, which is why its our Beverly Hills Power Walk!’
*Do this “Kelly Brook Beverly Hills” power walk today.
Robin Roberts 1960
Twice she faced life-threatening illnesses. Through it all, she honored her friends and supporters by choosing to make “her mess her message,” something her mother said often. She opened her heart and soul, lifted the veil, and shared her struggle with the world, hoping to inspire and encourage those in need.
“When fear knocks, let faith answer the door. Have faith that if you’re diagnosed with cancer or if someone you love is diagnosed, there are oncology nurses, doctors, clergy and a battalion of other people who will be there and want to help you get through it.”
*Don’t be afraid to make your mess your message. When fear knocks, let faith answer the door. Beautifully said by Robin Roberts.
“I love having my own brand and my own business. I like keeping busy. If I’m not doing anything, I feel like I’m wasting my time. I definitely don’t want to stop, ever. I’ll work until I stop breathing.”
*Find a job or run a business that you love so much that you want to work until you stop breathing. I can’t believe I’m telling you to be like Snooki.
Miley Cyrus 1992
“I think it got harder when I started touring as both—I toured as Hannah Montana and as myself.”
“I think that’s probably what’s a little bit wrong with me now! I mark that up to doing some extreme damage in my psyche as an adult person.”
*Listen to her as Miley Cyrus, Hannah Montana, or a little bit of both. It’s good for your psyche.
John Schnatter 1961
Rather than buying or inheriting a business, he really did build the company from modest origins. He set up some used kitchen equipment in a converted broom closet and within months had his own booming pizza business, which eventually grew into a multibillion-dollar company.
*Order Papa John’s pizza for lunch – before you live like Franklin Pierce. Solidify your multi-billion-dollar company while eating it.
BONUS: Rick Bayless 1953
It’s cantaloupe sweetness is cut with the smoky bite of Mezcal and a spicy sprinkle of pepper flakes.
Make sure you garnish with a melon (wrecking) ball.
*Wash down your pizza with a Wrecking Ball.
