Detox Your Day

Marisa begins every day with the same ritual: drinking a cup of hot water with lemon.

She follows that with a boiled egg drizzled with a little olive oil or some fresh berries and granola with whole-milk yogurt.

Marisa keeps high protein snacks on hand.

“I’m a person who has to eat!”

“I graze every few hours.”

*Start today by drinking a cup of hot water with lemon. And then graze every few hours with high protein snacks. Then watch The Wrestler to reward yourself.

CROSSOVER: SOUL

“The most important thing I think out of all this is to teach compassion and to identify with everyone’s struggle and to know these people made these sacrifices for us to be where we are and to push that forward — for us. I believe that’s the most important thing to show them, because they don’t have to know things that I knew growing up. Like being tough.”

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.
